Out worldwide in both ebook and physical form is my third Cotswolds fantasy novella for Tor.com Publishing, A Long Day in Lychford!
This is the controversial one, the Brexit one, where I deal head-on with the divisive stuff in small British towns, how it effects the people and the magic of Lychford. It’s a tough book for Autumn, who takes the lead, and goes through a severe test of her abilities and character. She’s the only person of colour in the town, and the focus on her experiences led me to consult with sensitivity reader Dee Mamora, who did a wonderful job. (You can hire too! Just follow that Twitter link!)
There’s also the usual mix of gentle humour and serious magic, as Autumn goes looking for a missing truck driver, Lizzie goes looking for the source of some repetitive music that’s annoying the townsfolk, and Judith… well, things get pretty dark for her too.
A Long Day in Lychford is available in all good online book stores, including Amazon UK and US.
Talking of Lychford, here’s an excellent article by Natalie Zutter that talks about several recent literary witches, my heroines included.
And this Saturday, 14th October, I’ll be launching A Long Day in Lychford at Bristol Horror Con, with a reading and a contest to win copies. I’m very much looking forward to it.
In other news, I had a quick chat with these guys about my first comics experiences.
I hope to see some of you on Saturday, and I hope you enjoy A Long Day in Lychford!
