Wendy and her Watcher

Review for Dark Things at horrornews.net.  One of those fun, full-detail numbers that writes a nice wee paragraph about each story.  Thoroughly exciting seeing my name on a horror site review.  Made me look something like this XD

Here's my little extract:

“Watching Shadows” by Emma Kathryn is a take off on the character of Wendy from Peter Pan. This story, however, is not the fun trip to Neverland that Wendy experiences in Peter Pan; no this story is about the dark shadow tapping at her window late at night. What does this shadow want? Is the shadow friend or foe? These are questions Wendy wonders as she contemplates letting the shadow into her room. This story was an interesting take off on the Peter Pan story and we realize that not all fairy tales have happy endings.

The full review of the rest of the book can be found at the link above.  I better beat it now because I've got a ridiculous amount of work to do.  Just thought I'd keep you all posted.

On that note, I've had another story accepted for Static Movement's Ruby Red Cravings.  This is another new vampire tale, this one called "Last of the Wilds".  So if you're a fan of my vampire stuff, this anthology is a must-read!!!

Bysie bye my fair bloody bunnies.

New Vampire Tale

I know I posted earlier, nut I might as well post while I can.

Totally forgot to say that my story "Northern Winds" will be appearing in Static Movement's Ruby Red Cravings (cover below).  Very excited about this.  It's another piece from my "Flashes Before her Eyes" vampire series.  Should be a fantastic book.  Can't wait to see it!!!

If I get the chance, I'll submit another story to this.  Fingers crossed!!!!

Bad news: my novella "Glitter and Trauma" was knocked back.  However, I'm not going to give up and am going to adapt this into an actual novel.  It's a superhero/dark fantasy number so let's hope some publisher fancies it this time round.

Nighty night bunnies.

Ello bunnies,

Very quick update, while I enjoy a well-deserved cup of tea.  Mmmmm...

Seasons in the Abyss, published by Blood Bound Books, is now on sale.  This features my story "The Harvest", which is featured in the Fall section of the book.  It's a story I'm pretty pleased with and am glad to see in print.  The book is bargain at $13.99 for 77 (yup, 77!) spooky seasonal stories.  I'm going to order my copy now, and so should you!  Grab it here!

Seasons in the Abyss

I'm going to go rest my brain now and finish my tea.  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  I certainly will as it's my first weekend off in months!!!!

Ooooh, almost forgot, my copies of Creepy Things: An Anthology of the Creepy-Crawly, Spooky & Silly and Dark Romance from the Far Side arrived last week.  Freakin' awesome.  Two of my favourite stories, for sure.

Anyway, going to watch Moulin Rouge on blu-ray AT LAST!  Beauty, freedom, truth and love!

Behold, excitement and smilies.  Great review for Dark Romance from the Far Side on Amazon.  Check it here.  Or below, where I'm pasting my favourite bit! XD

Blood, Bones, and Bowie by Emma Kathryn is a quirky vampire story that takes you on a musical trip around the world with Ziggy and his Lady. Like Megan's Tattoo, this one ends tragically, but Kathryn's lovely, simple prose makes this a poignant story, definitely one of my favourites.

Eeeep!!!  Very please with this.  Biscuits and fairy cakes for that lovely reviewer.  It's a great book, folks, I recommend getting hold of it as soon as possible.

In other news, I've been managing to get tini tiny bits of writing done lately.  I mean tini tiny, but it's a start.  I don't have much time these days but I'm doing my best to get stuff sent out.  The novella got a knockback, but I'm not going to give up on it.  When I get some time off, I might turn it into a novel, or put it with some other novellas.  We'll see.

Anywho, my short story collection, "Love Bites and Fatal Wounds" is currently sitting in a publisher's inbox, so fingers crossed on that one.  I'll keep you all posted and I'm sorry I've been so out of touch.  Won't be long before I'm back to normal, bunnies.

Until the next time...

Lotsaluv, Em
