Like most of the country, I am currently in shock at the existence of weather. (Snoooooooooow!) But never mind that, update time!
In February I managed guest posts in two (2! Count ’em!) places:
As part of the Fox Spirit Books celebration of Women in Horror Month I did a post about short horror fiction and the women who write it. Go check out my post Short Fiction Queens or visit the round up post to see the full range of fab Foxy women in horror posts.
Not only! But also! The splendiferous Mark West has compiled another Mixtape blog, this time on short Stephen King fiction. I did a short thing on ‘Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption’ and you can read it, and the rest of the picks, over on the Mixtape here!
And I am thrilled to announce I’ll be having a story published in the upcoming Alchemy Press Book of Horrors. My story ‘Down Along the Backroads’ is a bit of a weird post-apoc multi-world thing where new visitors to town stir up things best left unstirred. There’s a lovely bunch of horror folks joining me in the table of contents (see the full list here!) so look out for that around September time.
I may have written a couple of non-fiction books. I blame the mother ship entirely.
Thus – coming later in the year will be a couple of short taster guides for card divination! Let’s Try Tarot, co-written with Patricia Barber, will give the quick and easy way to try out tarot reading. Its companion volume, Let’s Try Cartomancy, covers quick and easy playing card divination. More news on those to follow!
