Wrapped in Black: ThirteenTales of Witches and the Occult
Read in November, 2014
I am a big fan of Sekhmet Press and their WRAPPED Series. Wrapped in Black is the third anthology in the series and the focus this time is witches and the occult. I will admit, witches aren’t my favorite characters to read about. I rarely find myself drawn to a book because it’s about witches, like I am with books about vampires or time travel. But Sekhmet has yet to disappoint me with their anthologies, so I was very happy to read this one!
I am very excited for my friends at Sekhmet Press. WRAPPED IN BLACK: Thirteen Tales of Witches and the Occult has a great line up of contributors and I cannot wait to get my hands on this collection!
WRAPPED IN WHITE: Thirteen Tales of Spectres, Ghost, and Spirits
After reading Wrapped in Red, a vampire anthology released by Sekhmet Press, I was very excited to hear about Wrapped in White: Thirteen Tales of Spectres, Ghosts, and Spirits. As a lover of ghost stories, this was a wonderful collection. The perfect kind of tales to read around a campfire. I was very pleased to see two of my favorite authors (Allison M. Dickson, author of STRINGS, and Patrick C. Greene, author of PROGENY) had contributed to the anthology. I also discovered some authors I was unfamiliar with who had some amazing stories in the anthology.
Here’s the breakdown, in TOC order.
Daddy’s Glasses by Allison M. Dickson
This is Dickson at her best. Great imagery, amazing character development, and her remarkable skill at grabbing the reader and never letting go. There’s a reason she’s one of my favorite authors, and this story is the perfect example of her talent.
WRAPPED IN RED: Thirteen Tales of Vampiric Horror
Thirteen crimson concoctions sure to tempt your teeth, from the ancient to the modern, from the Carpathian Mountains to the Atlantic Ocean to the Wild West, you are sure to find your… type – Wrapped In Red.
Unlimited Vampire Nightmares.
I have always been a fan of vampire stories. The Vampire Lestat is one of my favorite books ever. And I know you will judge me, but I devoured the Twilight series in two weeks. Doesn’t mean I liked it, but I read it. So I was super excited when the publisher offered me an advanced copy of this anthology. Vampire short stories? Yes, please!
I’m always running late.
I have been so busy lately. Book releases, editing, marketing, beta reading, and everyday life. It has been so hectic. And I am loving every minute of it. I do a little part time work for a small press, Hobbes End Publishing. My job basically entails reading submissions, proofreading, and marketing. And marketing entails social media! Woohoo. I get paid to get on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest! What’s not to love about that?
