May 3

Okay, so it’s barely May and aleady it’s in the upper 90s around here. I am stubbornly refusing to turn on the air conditioning–despite having a cold. I will suffer.

The temptation in weather like this is to turn to something light and frothy. A beach read, right? Preferably one that actually occurs at the beach. If you’re looking for that, I offer my novellaTreasure, which you can download for free here. Or maybe you want a road trip story, like my soon-to-be-released Motel. Pool. Or a vacation tale like Venetian Masks.

But you know what? I think you ought to be contrary. As those temps climb and the days grow longer, I think you should curl up with something a little dark. Something with monsters. Like our new anthology, Stitch, of course. It contains novellas by Sue Brown, Eli Easton, Jamie Fessenden, and me, each of which will make you think about what it really means to be human. Maybe you’ll even be cooled a bit with a chill up your spine–or else heated up with some steamy lovin’.

The four of us will be joined by B.G. Thomas for a second book in the Gothika series; this book will contain voodoo stories. Mine’s called “The Dance” and was submitted today. That book should release in time for Halloween.

In the meantime, pour yourself something cold and admire this cover:

Kim Fielding.

From Eli: thanks for being on my blog, Kim! As you know, I love all of your stuff. Looking forward to Motel. Pool.  And your story in “Stitch” is not to be missed.
