New story and essay, novel excerpt AVAILABLE NOW in FREE SIRENS CALL EZINE ISSUE 60!
BIG NEWS!! I’m ecstatic to announce that Sirens Call eZine Issue #60—FREE to download—not only contains my story, “What the Ocean Knows,” but, because they honored me with being featured author, also contains an essay, “Whispers Beneath the Lines: Dark Fiction’s Power to Heal” and a longer excerpt from my novel, Bad Apple! This giant issue also features some awesome friends of mine—Robert Mayette, Naching T. Kassa, Meg Smith, Derek Austin Johnson, and Nina D’Arcangela, and a close-up on the amazing virtual reading series Strong Women: Strange Worlds.
In “What the Ocean Knows,” a grieving woman finds comfort in afternoons spent talking to the sea… until the day the sea talks back.
The essay, “Whispers Beneath the Lines,” looks at the importance of dark fiction as a way to connect and heal through the lens of my mother’s death (and also, if you enjoyed Guillermo del Toro’s recent Netflix series Cabinet of Curiosities’ Episode 8, “The Murmuring,” then you’ll definitely want to read this).
Chase those post-holiday blues with a bit of some fun, free horror.
Here’s the download link. Enjoy!
