New Release

Sing Our Bones Eternal
(March 29, 2023)

A young woman, stranded on a strange isle, discovers her true nature in this deliciously dark debut, perfect for gothic fantasy and folk horror fans. Through the mist and the fog, cloven bodies wash ashore. Sinister songs haunt the tide pools, and burnt offerings rise from the sea cliffs.

Senga Goldie is an outcast on Hourglass Isle. Her father is wicked. Her mother is beguiled. Bound by a covenant to a hungry god, Senga has all the trappings of a huntress, but her world is shattered when a mirror-wielding mermaid befriends her. Caught between blood and water, she must choose between the only life she’s ever known and the deep dark nether.
