Dark Minds... Coming Soon!
I'm thrilled to say that my short story The Sydney Dahlia will be included in the first volume of the charity anthology, Dark Minds (ed. by Betsy Reavley) to be published in mid-December.
Due to the amazing generosity of the authors, and the hard work of Betsy and her team at Bloodhound Books, there'll be an impressive thirty-nine stories in this first collection by crime and dark fiction authors, including some 'big' names such as L ucy V Hay, Paul D Brazill, M A Comley, and Alex Shaw, to name but a few. And, of course, yours truly.
All proceeds from the book are being donated to Hospice UK, the national charity for hospice care in the UK. It's an excellent cause and one I'm happy to be associated with.
Publication is expected in early December, and I'll post a link to where you can buy it at that time. There'll also be an audio-book version!
