I have not one, but two books coming out in July.
I've already talked elsewhere (but weirdly I forgot to do so here!) about my new short story collection from ChiZine Press, And Cannot Come Again, which is out in July.
But I also have another book out, from Dark Minds Press, being released the same month.
It's called A Love Like Blood.
It consists of two novelettes on the theme of missing parents.
"From the author of AND CANNOT COME AGAIN and the BLACK ROAD series, two tales of family trees whose roots go down into dark and bloody soil.
FITTON’S GHOST: When Laura inherits her murdered father’s derelict shop, she finds herself haunted by the terrible Grinning Boy. To escape him she’ll have to learn the truth about her family, and face something even more monstrous than him...
BURNS THE WITCHFIRE, UPON THE HILL: Emma searches for her long-lost mother, only to learn she died mysteriously years before. Will uncovering the truth doom Emma to the same fate?
The answers lie in dark earth, hidden places… and in a love like blood."
"Hauntingly beautiful and compelling, these stories will linger in your mind long after you’ve finished reading. Simon Bestwick understands what it is to be human, to be fragile and frightened, and yet still find the strength to fight."
- Damien Angelica Walters, author of Sing Me Your Scars and The Dead Girls Club.
I'll post a link to where it can be bought/pre-ordered as soon as I have one.
