I’m feeling the call of Christmas, but before we get there let’s concentrate on the sudden spurt of short stories that is making me look very productive.
The latest edition of Black Static is out there and that means readers will be coming across my Many-Eyed Monsters. Apologies if they make you queasy.
Expanded Horizons ran my piece of magical realism, Ozymandias, last week. Imagine if you woke up one morning and the desert had arrived at your house.
The release of Women Writing the Weird II is very exciting – a collection of stories from Dog Horn Publishing about Dreadful Daughters, my story Penelope Napolitano and the Butterflies joins some excellent company there.
The Beauty is selling fast, and people continue to have good things to say about it. Rosianna Halse Rojas instagrammed a picture of it next to her menu on an evening out, and then reviewed it on Youtube, making it look very good indeed.
Magnificent Octopus also reviewed it, and declared it the book they most wanted to give as a Christmas present, even if it might put a bit of a downer on things. Thanks to everyone who reads and/or reviews it.
And finally, Unsung Stories is getting into the short story market and is kicking things off with From the Neck Up, my tale of beheading and the job market. I’ll put up a link here once it’s available.
