We’re well into spooky season, so this seems like a good time to mention a couple of stories I’ll have coming out later this year. They’re both in a cold ‘n’ creepy vein — think ghosts and monsters looming out of curtains of snow…
“White Shapes in Snow” is a snowy creature-feature that’s also about the ways we’re complicit in ignoring the abuse around us, and will be appearing in the December issue of the New Welsh Reader.
“Grey Mary” is a ghost story inspired by the Welsh New Year tradition of the Mari Lwyd, and it’ll be one of the entries in a horror advent calendar that the excellent J. R. Park of the Sinister Horror Company is putting together.
As always, watch this space for updates!
Two updates in one day? Must be some sort of record.
Anyway, I’m very pleased to announce my story, “Thawing”, will be appearing in the all-new Wyldblood Magazine in the new year. Features ice dragons, insidious lies, and a very pissed-off frozen princess.
I wrote a little piece for the Gwyllion blog, to accompany my story in the current issue.
It’s up now — check it out on their site!
I’ve been querying for a few months now, gnawing my fingernails to the quick like a self-cannibalising hamster, but I can finally stop! 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, while I’m sharing good news, this might also be a good time to mention that my story “Diamonds and Pearls” will appear in the Winter 2021 issue of Fireside Quarterly, and will be popping up on the website shortly after. Fireside is absolutely fantastic, as you’ll be well aware if you read any SFF short fiction, so having something of mine appear in its pages is pretty damn awesome, not gonna lie.
Hi! Welcome to my new website. I’ve never been much good at keeping up with blogging, so I’ll be using this page mainly to post updates when I have news.
For example, my story “We Speak in Tongues of Flame” which originally appeared in the 2018 anthology Resist Fascism from Crossed Genres, is going to be reprinted in the first issue of Gwyllion, a new SFF magazine from Wales. It’s an awesome-looking project run by marginalised people — please do check it out if you can. The first issue will be out in September.
