At last, February is here! Women in Horror month has begun, and therefore I can joyfully announce that Kandisha Press have released the third instalment of their women in horror anthology series.
To boot, I’m delighted to have a short story included in this lovely anthology, sharing space with some amazing voices from the horror scene.
What doesn’t kill me, might make me kill you!
30 women authors from around the world were challenged to write about The One That Got Away. Here you’ll find tales of unrequited love, blind dates gone wrong, stalkers and their prey, cursed guitars, alien symbiotes, sinister letters, and bitter acts of revenge. Dive into these murky depths and discover what hides inside the minds of women scorned.
The story I have featured within this beauty is a piece titled: Call of the Tide. An artist and her husband move to the coast in a hollow attempt to salvage their crumbling marriage. Then, one afternoon, Maya hears a song drifting inland. Incessant. Alluring. Her paintings change. Faces form in the clutch of the moon. And the strange song won’t stop calling to her, over and over again.
I can’t express how happy I was when I wrote this story. I felt as though I hit a huge stride with this piece and really solidified some aspects of the voice I’ve been wanting to nurture. There is, to me, a great jump in confidence from my piece in the previous volume to this one. Hard not to be a little proud.
But, if my story doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, there’s a brilliant TOC to gander at.
