The wonderful SERIAL Magazine has released their special Valentine’s Day issue, and even in horror, there are love stories.
“An Invitation to Darkness” is a sweeping tale of a retired sea captain, the woman she loves, a manor by the sea, ghosts, graves, dark secrets, eldritch monstrosities–everything you could want on Valentine’s Day, wrapped in a classic-feeling Gothic horror for the modern day.
Also available digitally!
If you head on over to Asymmetry, they publish short fiction every Monday. Today they published “The Nowhere Song,” a flash fiction of mine about a chance encounter and why you should always be polite. You can read it here.
Today brings to the world my first published stories for 2019!
“Daisy” is the short story of a dog and the slight she cannot forgive. You can read it free at the Gallows Hill Magazine website.
Also for a quick read, check out “Sunday Afternoon for Benny Rose” at Dime Show Review, where they type ten-word stories on vintage typewriters and upload the results. Pretty snazzy!
And of course, Happy Women in Horror month!
