I’m so thrilled to be able to announce the imminent publication of a new Clan Destine Press anthology: This Fresh Hell, edited by Katya de Becerra, Author and me! And look at Claire Smith’s stunning cover!
This twisted take on horror presents nineteen stories by 20 emerging and established writers from around the world.
Discover something fresh in horror
Cursed dolls, siren calls, malignant houses, highway hauntings, isolated communities and attempts to summon the devil are among the many classic horror tropes subverted and reimagined in This Fresh Hell, in settings from the Australian outback and a New Orleans bayou to a beach in West Java and the Valley of the Queens.
This Fresh Hell is due for release in June 2023. Pre-order now in Australia or America, in anticipation of a delicious June chill and get a 20% discount on the hardcover, paperback or eBook.
Cover Reveal: The She-Wolf of Baker Street
It’s my delight to share with you the fabulous cover of my upcoming novel, The She Wolf of Baker Street, a queer, modern, paranormal take on ACD’s classic characters. The cover design is by Jill Harris.
Audrey Hudson is the she-wolf in question, taking the lead in this contemporary, paranormal take on the residents of Baker Street.
The She-Wolf of Baker Street is due out in the second half of 2023, around September, but you can pre-order it now in paperback or ebook!
Clamour and Mischief a finalist in the 2022 Aurealis Awards
I am absolutey over the moon to find that Clamour and Mischief is a finalist in the 2022 Aurealis Awards in the Best Anthology category.
I’m thrilled and thankful to have worked with so many brilliant and lovely authors, who were a pleasure to work with and who have made it such a wonderful book!
It’s also delightful to see that Queer Weird West Tales (in which I have a story) has also been nominated in the Best Anthology Category. Clan Destine Press author Robert Hood is also nominated for Best Horror Novel with Scavengers, and that Aaron Dries’ “Kookaburra Cruel” (from Clan Destine’s horror anthology, Damnation Games) is also a finalist.
Results will be announced in June at a ceremony in Canberra – Lindy and I will be doing a road trip to attend the ceremony!
In the meantime, thank you to all the fabulous writers who contributed to the anthology, and congratulations to all the other finalists in all categories. What excellent company to be in!
