I’m very excited to announce that after many years of contributing artwork and my public relations experience to Midnight Echo Magazine, I’ll finally have a piece of prose within the pages of Issue 10!
The ghost-story themed issue is edited by Award-winning editor and publisher Craig Bezant and is expected to be released on November 30.
The Australian Horror Writers Association, which publishes Midnight Echo, released the Table of Contents overnight and I’m chuffed to see that I’m sharing space with the likes of Gary A. Braunbeck, Alan Baxter, Martin Livings and Joseph A. Pinto, to name a few.
I think I’ve subbed short stories since Issue 3, and even had a few on their shortlist in Issue 7 and 9, but it’s fantastic that I’ve made the cut, with my creepy haunted house tale, Mother’s House.
Don’t worry though, I’ll still have some art in the magazine as well, with mine and Mark Farrugia’s vampire comic Allure of the Ancients: The Key to His Kingdom Chapter 4 and I’ve also supplied the corner art and a piece of art to accompany a story.
As a bonus, the regular Pix and Panels, comic column will feature an interview with myself, Rocky Wood and Lisa Morton about our graphic novel Witch Hunts, which won a Bram Stoker Award, in June.
So all in all, I’m extremely excited about this and I can’t wait to see this Issue in print!
