Unnerving Magazine #issue 4 Extended Halloween Edition

Unnerving Magazine is a relatively new quarterly magazine of horror, dark fantasy and dark sci-fi. It's really dark! So if you love horror and all things creepy then this is the magazine for you. I've read a few issues now and loved everyone of them so far. I also want to point out that Unnerving have a great deal on right now. You can subscribe to this magazine for a whole year for just $10! For that price you get to read some amazing stories and help support indie horror. When I subscribed I got a free ebook called Alligators in Sewers which looks really cool, I can't wait to get stuck into that. Issue #4 is a bumper Halloween issue and features a really impressive line up including William Meikle, Max Booth 111, Israel Finn and regular contributors such as Gwendolyn Kiste.

I am Witch

I'm super chuffed to have had one of my stories accepted for the second issue of Aphotic Realm Magazine.   Fot those who don't know, this is a new publication of strange and sinister fiction. Their first issue, Apparitions  immediately garnered great reviews and they are well on their way to establishing themselves as a premier dark fiction magazine. My story, I am Witch, will be featured in issue two which comes out October/November 2017. Like with Apparitions, issue two will be themed around banishment. This is such a great magazine, a lot of love and dedication is put into this. I implore you to invest in the paperback version which is printed in full cover and features amazing artwork.

Over the last few years she has published many, many stories in all the top horror and speculative fiction magazines such as Black Static, Interzone, Nightmare Magazine, Lamplight, Shimmer and Sanitarium Magazine. Recently she published her first collection of short stories with JournalStone, And Her Smile Will Untether the Universe which contained previously published stories as well as a few originals. Upon release it instantly garnered high praise from many reviewers and readers all over the world. Since then she has written her first novel The Rust Maidens which will be coming out 2018 with Trepidatio Publishing. There is also a novelette in the works which she has co-written with Emily Cataneo who also has a great collection out with JournalStone, Speaking to Skull Kings and Other Stories. An
