Guess what came in the post? My paperback proof copy of my second novel, The Buddha’s Bone, arrived a few days ago. You can imagine how excited I was, right? A rainbow appeared just as I was taking my promotional photos. If that isn’t a good omen, I don’t know what is!
Like the e-book, the paperback will be released on 25th October, right in time for Halloween. It’s not a horror – it’s literary fiction/social realism, but Halloween is my favourite season, so it’s double the fun to look forward to. If you want to listen to a sample reading, check out my video on YouTube here:
Leilanie Stewart is an author and poet from Belfast, Northern Ireland. She has written four novels, including award-winning ghost horror, The Blue Man, as well as three poetry collections. Her writing confronts the nature of self; her novels feature main characters on a dark psychological journey who have a crisis of identity and create a new sense of being. She began writing for publication while working as an English teacher in Japan, a career pathway that has influenced themes in her writing. Her former career as an Archaeologist has also inspired her writing and she has incorporated elements of archaeology and mythology into both her fiction and poetry.
In addition to promoting her own work, Leilanie runs Bindweed Magazine, a creative writing literary journal with her writer husband, Joseph Robert. Aside from publishing pursuits, Leilanie enjoys spending time with her husband and their lively literary lad, a voracious reader of sea monster books.
