My darkly speculative microfiction “The Stones” can now be read for free online at Pen of the Damned!
I am happy to share that five of my speculative poems can be found in the current issues of Scifaikuest. Two poems appear in the print issue while three appear in the free-to-read digital issue found here. I’m especially delighted that one of my digitally published poems “Through the reset portal” was selected as the editor’s favourite!
There’s a lot to look forward to in 2022! My writings will appear in a number of anthologies in the coming year, and I am delighted to share some of the covers for those anthologies with you:
Brigid’s Gate Press will be releasing A Quaint and Curious Volume of Gothic Tales on January 31, 2022. Preorder is now available for e-books here! With contributions by many talented authors and edited by Alex Woodroe, this anthology promises to be a dark delight. You can find an early review here!
Another treasure from Brigid’s Gate Press , Musing of the Muses features hauntingly beautiful cover art by Elizabeth Leggett. Edited by Heather and S. D. Vassallo, this anthology brings together poetry and fiction that examine, explore, and expand Greek mythology into fresh new forms. Watch for its release in spring 2022!
Black Spots Books will be releasing their first women in horror poetry collection Under Her Skin on April 5, 2022. Edited by Lindy Ryan and Toni Miller, this anthology explores the theme of body horror through the voices of female-identifying horror poets. With a foreword by Linda D. Addison and illustrations by Marge Simon, this anthology will be an exciting release!
“Not for the faint of heart…Each word and phrase has been structured in such a way that the reader will experience an intense depth of emotion and feelings.” —Gini Rainey, EGuide Magazine
“…varied themes, approaches, and poetic structures create a diverse series of horror inspections. Under Her Skin is unparalleled in scope, creativity, and literary strength. It is highly recommended for any collection strong in women’s writings, horror, or literary works.” —Midwest Book Review
