I’ve just had confirmation that my short story My Own Eggsecutioner will be published in the first volume of charity anthology Dark Minds (ed. by Betsy Reavley) in mid-December.
Thanks to the generosity of those taking part (and the hard work of Betsy herself) there’ll be an incredible thirty-nine stories in the collection, by a range of crime and dark fiction authors, including some pretty ‘big’ names. Included in this first volume are B A Morton, Paul D Brazill, K A Richardson, Steven Dunne, M A Comley, Lucy V Hay, and Alex Shaw, to name but a few. And muggins, of course.
Even better news, the proceeds from the book now have a permanent (and hopefully welcoming) home in 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.
I think I’m right in saying the book is still due out on 13th December (just in time for all those Christmas presents you should be buying *cough* hint *cough*) but I’ll confirm all details, where to order etc a little nearer the time.
