I’m getting Shivers sharing my good news

September 25, 2014

Shiver from Accent Press Oct 2014

Those of you kind enough to pop in here from time to time will know I’ve been submitting to Publishers during the summer, more in hope than expectation.

Well, I am very happy to share my good news with you.

I’ve been included in SHIVER,

a collection of horror stories

with contributions by so many authors I admire such as:

Andrea Frazer, Bill Kitson, Caroline Dunford, Christina Jones, Helena Fairfax, Tricia Maw, Marie Laval, Cara Cooper and David Roger.

SHIVER is published in early October 2014 by ACCENT PRESS LTD.

 I’ve signed a Publishing Agreement for this collection and I am hoping it will lead to more stories being published by them. 

They have a Christmas story I’ve written under consideration, so fingers crossed.

This story is a  departure from my usual Crime/Mystery writing – I’ve never attempted a Ghost story before and it was fun to write.

My story is called ‘The Haunting of Anne Chambers’

  I am thrilled to bits and really excited.

More information to follow soon.

I do hope you like the cover – Halloween is soon upon us.

Catch up soon.  Have a FAB weekend one and all.

            • Kate, thanks so much. I appreciate it and I really hope you enjoy all the stories. I am reading them now and am finding the different styles of the various authors so interesting. This is my first time having a ‘proper’ editor working with me and it was quite an experience I can tell you…not so much chopped out but tightened up. The little that did go was hard to part with but the decisions were correct I think. Do let me know what you think of all the stories and of course mine. Feedback is always appreciated – working in a vacuum and all that! Have a fab weekend. I am off to the physiotherapist now – torture is what it should be called – so hope I can still type later today. 🙂

      • Coming along just fine thanks. I had a person to person meeting today, which to others may be normal but to me it was an event! It was about books and a salon that is coming up. Unfortunately we have a small English population around here so (sigh), I will have to be even more brave at the salon.

    • Thanks so much Jane. I hope so. Small steps. In the past I have given the stories away for anthologies. This time I was invited to submit and then offered the contract. It is up to me now. Hoping you have a fab weekend and lots of writing success too 🙂

    • It is indeed. This is my first contract, in the past I’ve given them away. So I am excited, it is a door opener. I know it is a small step…I wrote this by invitation too. 🙂 Wishing you lots of success Paula. 🙂

      • Thank you, Jane. So far this year three of my stories have found homes in three different anthologies which will be published this year. Like you, I’m under contract with one. I’m excited as I managed to get one of my stories into a Gothic anthology being published by Parthian Books. They were looking for 13 stories and I couldn’t believe it when mine was accepted as one of them. I look forward to see your story when its published.

        • Paula, that is wonderful – you have done really well and I will keep positive thoughts coming your way for more success. Every little step…that’s what I tell myself. Congrats on Parthian books…let me know when it is published. Look forward to reading it and others. Let me know where they are. Have a fun weekend. 🙂

    • Thanks so much. I am thrilled too. We share a Publisher! I am excited. I’ve had stories in anthologies before but never under a contract and by invitation quite like this. This is the second book Chrissie and I have both had stories included in. I hope Jersey Kiss is doing well. I’ve shared on my FB author page a couple of times, so I wish you all the best with it 🙂
