The Devil You Know…

I firmly believe in Murphy’s Law, and yet, occasionally…good things seem to happen to me. They say good things come in three’s, so let’s begin the countdown, shall we?

3) My novelette “Son of the Devil”, a unique dark historical fantasy retelling of Dracula, will be featuring in Fiction-Atlas Press‘ upcoming anti-hero anthology “The Devil You Know“! Due for release on the 30th of September, you can Pre-Order this exciting collection from Amazon, now!

2) My Short Read from Black Hare Press is currently also up for Pre-Order and will be releasing on August 31st! You can check out my Author Interview regarding this lovely publication to learn about the message behind the story, as well as a little about what else I have on the go. So far, I’ve had an excellent response from early readers of “Blood & Silk” who describe the Japanese setting, lore, and mythology as beautifully immersive!

1) And last, but certainly not least… “Harvest II“, which is volume 2 of “The Farmhouse Horror Duology” from Blood Song Books is releasing on Halloween! This grisly horror anthology features my flash fiction tale “Creep in the Cornfield“. Be sure to Pre-Order your copy, today. And if you haven’t already, I highly recommend purchasing “Harvest“, too!

Shifter Mania Unleashed!

featured graphic editedIn case you hadn’t heard… Midsummer Night Shifts, a Limited Edition (eBook only) Summer Shifter Romance Collection, has released! This stunning anthology features my novelette “Blood & Memory“, which is a part of my The Nine Realms Saga world. If you love traditional gothic vampires, and paranormal romances set against a Victorian styled setting, then you’ll love my contribution to this exciting publication. I’d be over the moon if you’d consider ordering a copy!

Read the blurb to “Blood & Memory“, below:

Saved from True Death by the ancient and enigmatic vampyre, Prince Anton Drăculea, ever youthful Natália spends her days keeping house, educating herself, and caring for her father; and her nights cleaning mortal vermin from the streets of Ungaria.
The Watchman’s daughter has always wondered why the famed prince, with his blood ties to the Dökkálfar of Álfheim, chose to save her those seventeen years ago… A seemingly chance meeting with a vampyre lord, and an invitation to the prince’s Black Masquerade Ball may just lead to the answers her heart has been seeking.

I hope the story excites you as much as it does me! So far the collection as a whole, and “Blood & Memory” have received some fantastic reviews on Amazon:

“An anthology packed with quality. I have to start by pointing out the tremendous value for money this anthology is. Its pages hold multiple novelettes of outstanding quality, and readers will find at least one story they’ll love and more than likely more.
I can honestly say I enjoyed every tale in Midsummer Night Shifts, though the stand outs were the stories from Zoey Xolton and Stacey Jaine McIntosh – thrilling, creative and written to an exacting standard.”
– David Green

“A moving work, all the tales are told with beautiful darkness mixed with romance. Every single tale told of romance in a way that presented darkness with such flowing eloquence, making for a write which gave the reader a very different perspective on the subjects within the pages.
Zoey Xolton’s ‘Blood and Memory’ has the elements of classic literature sounding like the likes of Charlotte Bronte, Mary Shelly and many others all mixed together with a different element which I cannot quite place.
All in all, a wonderfully written book, which was a sheer joy to read.”
– Stuart James Crossley

“A great collection of fantastic fiction. There is something for everyone.
Stand out for me was ‘Blood and Memory’ by Zoey Xolton. A rich world is the backdrop of story of soulmates and forever love. Beautiful!”
– Rainbow Abi
