Oh my goodness. The things I say "Yes" to...
I'm going to be at the World Horror Convention in March - not just as a fangirl but as an author. *Breaks out in a cold sweat*
I'm going to be doing a public reading! It's not just me, though: there are four of us from Black Lace: Olivia Knight, Mathilde Madden, Kristina Lloyd and myself. We've got a 2-hour slot on the Saturday night to read filthy excerpts from the dark and paranormal end of our writing portfolios. Attendees can expect werewolves, vampires and the restless dead. In fact I'm pretty sure wicked Lord Montague from my Cruel Enchantment collection is going to have to get an outing - if only because it's the only context I could read that story out loud without
I am an old-fashioned horror fan: I love James* and Lovecraft and Machen and Ligotti, and it's going to be amazing to mingle with other fans and writers. But I've never done a public reading before. I'm immensely excited and just a bit terrified. If I meet Tanith Lee I'll probably faint.
All credit goes to Mathilde, who organised everything. Oh oh oh oh!!! (fades off into incoherence...)
