I am thrilled to announce that I am one of the “Fourteen,” the authors in the first anthology from New England Speculative Writers.
This sff antho is going to kick some fictional and robotic butt. A kickstarter campaign has been set to help get the book launched. In something like a week, we’re at 87 percent of our goal.
Please support if you can!
I did a blog for New England Speculative Writers about self-editing.
Stories of the end of civilized life have always fascinated us, from the mythological world endings, Armageddon to Ragnorok, to the flood stories of across the Ancient world. They make us wonder what we would do if all around us came to an end: no transport, no fuel, no communications: a retreat into the desperation, the onslaught of disease, how would we survive? This is the source of zombie literature and provides the inspiration for this fabulous mix of horror and adventure, of classic and brand new writing in the successful series of Gothic Fantasy titles from Flame Tree. Features my story Bleed the Weak.

Thrilled to be part of Flametree’s next anthology, Endless Apocalypse.
Here’s the information that was posted on their site:
Due for release next March, Endless Apocalypse and Alien Invasion are the newest additions to our series of short story anthologies, and we’re excited to already share the list of authors chosen for inclusion in each book. In keeping with the format of the rest of the series, the two new anthologies consist of a selection of contemporary tales as well as classic authors, and the last few weeks have been busy with the careful process of selecting this new fiction, reading through the 800 stories received in response to our call for submissions. Endless Apocalypse is shaping up to be a thrilling exploration of the struggle for survival in the aftermath of destruction, presenting imaginative visions of the end of life as we know it. Alien Invasion, too, brings to the mix otherworldly horrors and the threat of the unknown, and introduces our first translated story from China as part of a long-term co-operation with Science Fiction World: a magazine dedicated to the genre with around 100,000 monthly readers.

One thing that has really got me excited this week is the fact that Abode was reviewed–and recommended–in the Library Journal. I’m so honored to be included in this! Below are screenshots of the actual magazine. Stoker Award winner Tom Deady, author of Haven, also got recommended.
These were part of a Halloween series about horror. They also coincided with blog posts from several Bloodshot Books authors about the genre. You can also read my article online at Becky Spratford’s blog here. Check the others out too!
Also, Abode (e-book) is $0.99 cents this week … click here for the link.
Here is an early review of my novel Abode from Unnerving Magazine.
“Well worth picking up.”
I’ll take that 🙂
A TERRIFYING HAUNTING
This is the place where the harrowed ghosts of a dozen generations whisper in the shadows of their ancestral home, where one family’s dreams of a new beginning turned into a nightmare that ended in tragedy.
A CURSED BLOODLINE
This is the place where a line of witches bound themselves—in blood—to a primeval entity. Here, nightmare and reality meet beneath frozen skies, and even time and space fall under the power of the demonic being that rules this remote northern wood.
A CHANCE ENCOUNTER
This is the place where the path of a tormented survivor meets that of an unknowing innocent. Past and present collide, and secrets long buried crawl back into the pallid light of day as the shadow of the Beast falls over them both. But even the bloodiest dreams of that demonic being may pale in comparison to what lies buried within the human heart.
This is the place where evil dwells …
