It seems a little bit anti-climactic in the face of the world burning right now in America, but I got some good news yesterday. The Christmas anthology I’m in is officially an official thing, titled Oh Horrid Night, and featuring 210 awesome pages of frightening short stories. It will wend its way to you on December 3rd. And what better time is there for escapism than this particular holiday season?
You can pre-order on amazon here, and if you have Kindle Unlimited it’s even free!
We also have a Goodreads page. If you’re on Goodreads, shelving it as “to read” can help us out. And, on another note… I officially have a Goodreads author page. (!!!) I look so fancy and professional, you can hardly believe it (did I just ruin the aura of professionalism?). If you’re interested in that, too, it’s here.
That’s all for now. I may seem chipper, but I’m definitely still processing the results of the election this week. I can’t be nice or reasoned about it right now, but I would expect a blog post about it at some point when my thoughts are more together.
Keep your chin up. With some serious love for you all,
It’s funny how bad news and good news come in exactly the same way. I saw the email from Fundead Publications in my inbox and I didn’t want to read it at first in case it was the “no” that everyone else has been sending me. But I saw the theme of their anthology months ago and knew my story was all but made for it: a Gothic Horror Christmas. That sort of serendipity doesn’t come around that often.
If you didn’t guess already, the email was a YES!!!!!!!! My story, “There Must Have Been Some Magic,” will appear in their Christmas anthology, up for sale in late November (or maybe early December). I’m not only excited to be included with such a talented group of writers, but I’m also thrilled that this is my first professional sale in which goods are exchanged. 🙂 New Year’s Resolution met!
The story is an odd mashup of street urchin meets horrific Frosty The Snowman/Pied Piper monster at an 1814 Frost Faire. I’m very proud of it, and can’t wait for you to read it.
That’s all. You may now go back to your regularly scheduled weekend. I’m enjoying my tea with extra sugar in celebration.
