So just a little post today to mention I’ve got a short story coming out in the upcoming Out of Tune Book 2 Anthology in May! 🙂
Like the first volume, each story is based off of folk songs and murder ballads of various origin.
Mine is loosely inspired by the Yeats poem The Stolen Child (which counts as a song, since it was set to music by Loreena McKennitt several years ago).
Although the idea looks like it would be a good fit for a Melanie/Abby story, it is not – this is a standalone piece. (Sorry Abby fans, I know you’re hoping for more – I am too.)
Entitled Respawn, Reboot, it actually has more to do with playing MMORPGs and the way that online games have a tendency to suck us into an alternate reality. There’s a bit of a horror twist to it as well, but I will go into more detail about the overall inspiration of the story when it comes out.
It was a really nice privilege to be included in this anthology, and I’m very excited for it to come out! 🙂
