The ebook version was out in late October, and now the trade paperback is available through Amazon.com.
It’s a huge book–38 stories and over 600 pages. If you like dark fantasy, this collection probably contains tales by some of your favorite writers, and it may also introduce you to a few new favorites.
The latest anthology in the long-running Sword and Sorceress series is out today. I am very happy to be a part of this one.
My story, “Royal Daughters,” is a historical fantasy tale set in the tumultuous border country of Scotland during the infancy of Mary Queen of Scots. It’s a standalone story, but it also gives a glimpse into the setting of my novel-in-progress. The story takes place about twenty years before the events of the novel.

This reprint anthology includes 38 dark fiction tales, all told by women writers. It’s over 185,000 words, and in printed form it’s 600 pages.
My story, “A Great and Terrible Hunger,” first appeared in the Chaosium anthology Madness on the Orient Express, edited by James Lowder.

Coming November 2!
Eighteen tales of magic and mayhem, in plenty of time for the holidays. If you really want to run with the Formidable Women theme, you could pair this with the Hath No Fury anthology that’s coming out the first of December.
My story, Royal Daughters, is a blend of fantasy and historical fiction, set in Scotland’s border country during the infancy of Mary Queen of Scots.

This anthology, which features stories of kick-ass female characters, was funded by Kickstarter and expected to come out in mid 2017. Is has been delayed several times and was just rescheduled for release on December 1. Here’s why:
The publisher, Ragnarok Publications, merged with Galaxy Knight Games, and the company is going through management change and reorganization. Things seem to be settling down, and I’m fairly confident that the new pub date will happen.
A book that’s considered worthy of hardcover treatment usually makes its debut in that format. The horror anthology Killing It Softly is an exception. It has been out for three months in digital and paperback format, and recently became available in hardcover with new cover art.
This is a collection of dark fiction by women writers, and apparently we’re going at this publishing thing backwards and in high heels.
