2018 was a year of stuff getting done! Here’s what and where…
My short story ‘Down Along the Backroads’ appeared in the fabulous Alchemy Press Book of Horrors – you can get your copy of Horrors in ebook and paperback formats from a variety of retailers including Amazon, Kobo, iBooks, Book Depository and Indiebooks
Across the interwebs, I had a review of Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant published as Day 17 of the Countdown to Christmas feature on the Fox Spirit Books blog and a Five Fave Anthologies appreciation piece as Day 11; Fox Spirit also took part in the annual Women in Horror Month and my piece on five favourite short horror stories was also published by them – Women in Horror: Short Fiction Queens; elsewhere I wrote an appreciation of Stephen King’s ‘Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption’ as part of the Stephen King Mixtape on Mark West’s blog.
I edited the rather gorgeous Fox Spirit Books short fiction sampler – Fearless Genre Warriors – an epic anthology that pulls 26 pieces of short fiction, 3 poems and 2 pieces of non-fiction from Fox Spirit’s range of anthologies and collections, with bonus internal art from Kieran Walsh and cover art from Vincent Holland-Keen. Available in epub or mobi format as a FREE download from Fox Spirit Books.

And with my myth and magic non-fiction hat on, I launched my Ann J. Clark website and published 4 divination taster guides!

Let’s Try Tarot – co-written with Patricia Barber – a beginner’s guide to tarot reading. Available as kindle and paperback editions from Amazon.
Let’s Try Cartomancy – a beginner’s guide to playing card divination. Available as kindle and paperback editions from Amazon.
Let’s Try Runes – a beginner’s guide to runes and rune divination. Available as kindle and paperback editions from Amazon.
And that was my 2018! Stay tuned for an even more packed 2019!

I’m thrilled to say that one of my editing projects is getting close to publication! Hurrah! Coming very soon from Fox Spirit Books may I present – Fearless Genre Warriors: A Fox Spirit Sampler.
With illustrations by Kieran Walsh and cover art by Vincent Holland-Keen, Fearless Genre Warriors: A Fox Spirit Sampler brings you a selection of twenty six short stories, three poems, and two pieces of non-fiction pulled from the full range of Fox Spirit Books anthologies and collections!
You’ll find folklore and fairytales told with humour and heart, ancient gods in far-flung times, ravens and foxes, shamans and sacrifice and earthquake gods, werewolves and faeries and mad science, classic tales seen anew, fiction and reality colliding, bards and dragons and mighty heroes, oh my!
You’ll also find the tales told in the graveyard hours, twilight terrors and pre-dawn dread. There’s tales of death and resurrection, human monsters and monsters of legend, tricksy creatures both fae and other, from desert and hillside and moor, to the depths of space and the deepest sea. Stories of transformation and transference, of hope and revolution and survival and moving on. Stories where worlds are changed, new homes found, and lives altered for the better.
It will be available soon in digital format only, and how much will this epic volume of short fiction goodness cost you? Nothing! Nada! Zip! Zilch! Totally Zero! Free all the way! Is that not the bargain of the year or what!
