The December issue is now out in print. It contains an interview with me, my short story “A Love Not Meant to Outlast the Butterflies,” and fine work by Kelli Owens, Tom Brennan, Salena Casha, Rati Mehrotra, and J. J. Green.

The Kindle version is free with purchase of the print version, as well. You can find them both here.

I’m so proud of “Butterflies!” I originally had the idea for it while in New Orleans. It full of magical realism, romance, betrayal, and sorrow. I do hope you’ll read it!

Bookworm Blues Reviews Pretty Little Dead Girls!

Pretty Little Dead Girls

Many of you might be familiar with Sarah Chorn. She’s an influential book reviewer, and also has a wonderful column at SF Signal called Special Needs in Strange Worlds. SNiSW is really worth your time to read. Not only does it discuss diversity in genre literature, but it focuses specifically on special needs. As far as I know, there isn’t another column that does that.

Sarah wrote a fantastic review of my novel Pretty Little Dead Girls: A Novel of Murder and Whimsy. It makes me smile so much! Please stop by and read it. 🙂 You can find it on her site, Bookworm Blues.

T.O. Munro’s Review of Pretty Little Dead Girls

PL_Dead_Girls-Mock-900px

This beautiful review of PLDG nearly stopped my heart. Author T.O. Munro took the time to write a beautiful review that was exquisitely worded. I couldn’t be more pleased.

Pretty Little Dead Girls has been out for five days and has received 18 five-star reviews and 1 four-star on Amazon. This makes me so happy and means so much! It means that over a dozen people are now familiar with Bryony and her destiny.

Thank you for all of your support and love! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it. This book is my dream come true.

Announcing Pretty Little Dead Girls!

BS1

You guys.

You GUYS.

I’ve mentioned it here and there, but I’m thrilled to officially announce that my favorite thing I ever wrote will be coming out this fall! Ragnarok Publications will release my book Pretty Little Dead Girls: A Novel of Murder and Whimsy this September.

“Run, Star Girl.”

 Bryony Adams is destined to be murdered, but fortunately Fate has terrible marksmanship. In order to survive, she must run as far and as fast as she can. After arriving in Seattle, Bryony befriends a tortured musician, a market fish-thrower, and a starry-eyed hero who is secretly a serial killer bent on fulfilling Bryony’s dark destiny.

 Mercedes M. Yardley’s Pretty Little Dead Girls: A Novel of Murder and Whimsy is a dark, lovely fairy tale with lyrical language and a high body count.  It will be released by Ragnarok Publications in September of 2014.

One of my favorite artists of all time, Galen Dara, agreed to do the cover. She creates some of the most feminine, darkly beautiful art that I have ever seen. If you’re not familiar with her work, run and check her out.

There will also be a special limited edition hardcover that will feature a tip-in insert of Orion Zangara’s work. It’s stunning, and makes a wonderful edition. The pre-order only hardcover will be available in October.

Ahhhh! I’m so excited! This book is the reason that I started describing my work as “whimsical horror.” There simply wasn’t another genre that it fit into. I hope it’s something you’ll read and enjoy, and will hopefully make the world a little bit more magical for you.
