Now, anyone who had anything to do with Solstice Shorts last year will know how much I like a good time theme. So I was delighted to find SolarWyrm‘s Latchkey Tales and their current project, Clockwise, a series of journals focussed around different times of day: this time Midnight Blues. So I sent them a story, and they have published it.
The Midwinter Wife takes place over the longest night of the year, in town of ancient origins south of London, and is a sort of Rip Van Winkle in reverse, with midnight playing a key role, obviously.
I noticed that Cathy Bryant (one of Arachne Press’ Poets) is also in Midnight Blues, pleasing to be in good company!
Anyway, you can buy a physical copy (kindle version to follow) or you can subscribe to the entire series, (electronic version or physical ) which is much cheaper per copy, or (and?) you can buy the omnibus later in the year…
In other news: I am currently typesetting my monster-book – The Dowry Blade, ready for publication in February 2016. Until I finish typesetting, I don’t know how many pages, (around 576) until I know how many pages I can’t get a quote from the printer, or finalise the spine width for the cover designer, so I am concentrating very hard. Surprised at how much I am enjoying the process!
Here’s the cover, (by Lucy Reynolds) uncomplicated by spine calculations..
