It’s 7 days until publication of my third novel, The Blue Man, which will be released on Friday 29th July 2022. Since the 1 week countdown is on, I thought I’d let you know about my main characters.
The Blue Man is told in first person from the point of view of two former best friends, Megan and Sabrina. The chapters alternate between the pair twenty years ago when they were eighteen year old besties in their final year of high school and twenty years later when they reunite as adults. In their schooldays, Megan and Sabrina had unleashed the malevolent entity known as The Blue Man and now, as women with family lives, seek to put the horrors of the past behind them.
If you like literary horror, ghost stories or psychological fiction, please feel free to pre-order a copy.
Otherwise, why not listen as I read an excerpt on YouTube:
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.
