Stoked to announce that my story “Her Blood Like Rubies in the Ground” is out in the anthology Gorgon: Stories of Emergence.
This was one of the stories I drafted in Codex’s Weekend Warrior competition in 2017. It had been a very prolific few weeks and I feel very good about the stories that came out.
The story began as a title that another author was kind enough to donate. When I started thinking about why someone would feed their blood to the ground the plot came to me in its entirety. I imagined a pair of witches and how they use magic to cope with loss. How personal that struggle can be and what conflicts might arise between them from the use of magic.
You can order the anthology here.
