This month my novelette, Til Death do us Boneapart, is published in Dark Gothic Resurrected Magazine Summer 2017. I’m excited to see this story in print for a couple of reasons:
1. It’s my first novelette publication (my prose publications to date have been flash fiction and short stories in magazines worldwide and my satirical novella, Zombie Reflux from Meandi Books in 2014).
2. It’s a literary hybrid, mixing elements of horror, humour and romance into the tale (or tail if you like, since the protagonist is an ancient Egyptian mummified cat!), which is great for my writing CV, since I’ve just finished my urban fantasy novel that also combines a few of those elements.
My story appears on page 68 of the issue, which you can buy at the Amazon link above for the magazine. It’s told from the point of view of a mummified cat who is possessed by the spirit of the Ancient Egyptian cat deity, Bastet. She’s on a quest to be reunited with her long lost owner of two millennia, Nephthys.
Hope you enjoy it!
