It’s finally almost the end of 2020 – here’s what I’ve published this year and where you can find it.
My first publication of the year was in Unspeakable: A Queer Gothic Anthology from Nyx Publishing. I was very happy to be a part of this anthology, and had a lot of fun meeting queer lit lovers at book groups and through doing the blog tour.
My story in this anthology is Lady of Letters, a mid-2000s twist on the epistolary gothic in which a teenage girl begins to receive mysterious messages after creating a fake MySpace profile.
You can pick up a copy of Unspeakable from Nyx Publishing – and while you’re there you can have a look at the amazing queer novellas they’re publishing next year.
My next publication was in Flotation Device, a COVID-19 charity anthology put together by the Glasgow Science Fiction Writers’ Circle. At the time of writing, the anthology had managed to raise £500 to split between Simon Community, The Trussel Trust and Doctors Without Borders. The anthology is available directly from the editor to avoid giving Amazon a cut of the donations.
My story in this one is Amaranth, a story about a Sailor Moon-style magical girl who tries to solve her depression by staying transformed.
And finally, I had a story released in the Kickstarter-backed Moonlight, an anthology of queer werewolf stories.
My story in this one is a short piece of slice-of-life titled Lesbian Werewolf Goes To IKEA, which is about exactly what you would expect.
At the time of writing, this anthology is only available to people who backed the original Kickstarter – I will update this page if that changes.
It’s been a surprisingly productive year for me publication-wise, even if circumstances mean that I’ve not produced as much new writing as I did last year. If you’re reading this, I wish you all the best in your own endeavours into 2021.
