Solstice Shorts: Longest Night, the Midwinter Wife


The  Midwinter Wife got another outing at Longest Night. Here is the peerless Annalie Wilson reading the shorter performance version

You can buy the full length print version in Latchkey Tales Clockwise – Midnight Blues

Once more into print… Clockwise


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..
