The Black Rose – Blurb

 

If you think being on the run for being a Witch is bad, just think what could happen when the people hunting you cause you to turn evil.

Rose is a normal Witch, just living her life on the run from the Witch Hunters. She lives her life day by day looking over her shoulder. When the Hunters finally catch her, something horrible goes wrong. Using the power of fear she forces a hunter to help her change back to who she once was. With only 3 days to change back, time is ticking and Rose can’t afford to waste any of it.

 

The Black Rose is a short story that will be available in Mystical Bites anthology, published by Crushing Hearts and Black Butterfly Publishing. Click here to add the antho to your Goodreads list!

Author Spotlight: Joe DiCicco

This Author Spotlight is the first post of my Mystical Bites Anthology Blog Series, to promote authors involved in the anthology. Mystical Bites comes out August 14th.

Now here’s a little about Joe DiCicco.


 

The Last Druid2

 

Joe DiCicco is a 30 year old author from New York, who writes in the horror, dark fantasy and dark sci-fi genres.

He developed a fascination for the dark, eerie and altogether strange at a young age. He began weaving his macabre tales in his childhood and has been writing them down as short stories ever since. He holds a degree in Natural Resources Conservation and is a passionate nature and animal lover. When not writing, he enjoys playing bass guitar, listening to music, cooking, hiking, bird watching, watching horror movies and reading horror and dark fantasy literature.

 

His first novel, Her Final Sleep, is available on Amazon in ebook for Kindle or in paperback. He also has two short horror tales, Feed My Queen and Some Call Me Fiend, available together on Amazon in ebook format.

The Mystical Bites Anthology Blog Series

July is here! That means that in a month and a half, the Mystical Bites anthology comes out. Yep, August 14th is rapidly approaching.

With that in mind, I wanted to try something a bit different to help promote our very awesome antho. The project involves 23 authors, some of whom are seasoned authors while a few are relatively new to the publishing world. To give our magical baby some TLC, I’ve decided to do a blog series highlighting some of the authors involved and their stories.

So here it is, all official and stuff:

 

Announcing the Mystical Bites Anthology Blog Series

COVER - (smaller for blog)(with our mysterious cover…)

 

Starting July 7 (running until mid-October), I’ll post an author spotlight and/or a guest post from an author represented in the anthology. I’ll be posting one roughly every couple weeks, so keep an eye out. You might just find your next favourite author.

 

In the meantime…

Here are posters for just a few pieces in the antho. And if you’re interested in reading these bite sized stories bursting with magic (like werewolves, dragons, and more), you can add the antho to your Goodreads shelves!
