Praise for Her Magical Pet

Just thought I’d share this very nice review of Her Magical Pet over at Smart Bitches, Trashy Books. It’s really positive about the anthology overall, and here’s what the reviewer had to say about “Beach Dirt on Bare Feet”: ‘Beach Dirt on Bare Feet’ by Louise Long, is an F/F selkie story and I lovedContinue reading “Praise for Her Magical Pet”

Oh, you thought spooky season was over?

It never is! Not round here, anyway. On which note, you can find my wintry horror story, “White Shapes in Snow”, in the Winter 2020 issue of New Welsh Reader, which came out earlier this week.

Oh yes.”

Because I’ve signed with a fantastic agent, Sandra Sawicka of Marjacq Scripts, and I’m looking forward to working with her to make my book the best it can possibly be. And, whileContinue reading “News, of the good variety”

Issue 1 of Gwyllion now up for pre-order!

Well… the title pretty much says it all. The first issue of new Welsh SFFH mag Gwyllion is now available for pre-order. It features “We Speak in Tongues of Flame”, my little fabulist story about art, language, and resistance, which originally appeared in the Resist Fascism anthology from Crossed Genres nearly two years ago. MyContinue reading “Issue 1 of Gwyllion now up for pre-order!”
