Time has passed in a whirl since my short story collection came out on September 20. October is always my busy season, but I’ve been writing a lot (including a new short story and half of another short story) and trying to take advantage of all the opportunities this season brings.
Some of the stuff I’ve been preparing is going up in the following days as Unsafe Words tours blogs.
Here’s the back cover text of the book, in case you missed it:
In the first full-length collection of her edgy, award-winning short stories, Loren Rhoads punctures the boundaries between horror, dark fantasy, and science fiction in a maelstrom of sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll.
Ghosts, succubi, naiads, vampires, the Wild Hunt, and the worst predator in the woods stalk these pages, alongside human monsters who follow their cravings past sanity or sense.
Here’s the whole schedule:
