I love book birthdays! Today, my short story LUNACY, has gone out into the wide world in an anthology published by Hic Dragones, in Manchester, England.
Early last year, a good friend and writing pal of mine, sent me an email about a “call for submissions” for this anthology. I had just finished drafting my second young adult novel and wanted a little diversion before diving into revisions. So I thought, why not give it a shot?
I searched the internet for everything I could find about werewolves, looking for something to spark inspiration for a story. The term “lycan” fascinated me. Googling the term led me to “lycanthropy”, its psychological as well as its mythical meanings. I began to think about the power of the human mind and its ability to perceive reality, but also it’s capacity to create its own.
Thus, LUNACY was born. A story of a young woman coming face to face with a horror that makes her doubt her sanity. Is she crazy? You decide…Wolf-Girls: Dark Tales of Teeth, Claws and Lycogyny
My wonderful editor, Hannah Kate, created this cool book trailer for today’s launch!
Happy Book Birthday!!!!
