A labour of love, appropriately enough being released on February 14th, brings you the work of four women authors. All known in different corners of the indie industry, they have joined together to create Daughters of Darkness. Here, you will find a collection of stories from each of the contributors allowing the reader to get a proper flavour of their individual styles. Unlike most anthologies where you only get one story as a taster per contributor, three of these authors give you several.
Who are the daughters? Theresa Derwin, Ruschelle Dillon, Stephanie Ellis and Alyson Faye. You may have seen their stories in small collections and alongside big names (Ramsey Campbell, Graham Masterton, Tim Lebbon, Adam Nevill, Brian Keane). You might have noticed their names in collections and anthologies or on novellas and novels. As women in horror, they work hard to deliver the goods. With the wonderful cover art of Francois Vaillancourt and Foreword by award-winning writer Lee Murray, this is what Daughters of Darkness does.
Want body horror? Check. Gothic? Check. Social Commentary? Check. Dark humour? Double check. Daughters of Darkness is only the inaugural publication from Black Angel Press but will not be the last. The ebook is currently available to pre-order here: http://mybook.to/DaughtersofDarkness and the paperback is in progress.
In the summer we hope to be announcing opportunities for other women writers. Black Angel Press is not just Aly and Steph. We want this to be the springboard for so many who find it hard to get their work out there, especially for that elusive first publication. Check back with us from time-to-time to make sure you hear any news first! We are all daughters, come join the sisterhood.
