Welcome to Coffin Hop 2013, and welcome guest author Katie John!

A few words from Katie about herself and her latest anthology,
Night Shade, Volume 1

head_shotKatie M John is the author of the UK Best Selling YA contemporary fantasy series ‘The Knight Trilogy’, the Gothic Detective Fairy Tale, ‘Beautiful Freaks’ and the forthcoming YA witchcraft series, ‘The Meadowsweet Chronicles’.  As well as founding her own independent press house, Little Bird Publishing House in 2010, she is the founder of the Dark Heart & Night Shade Anthology Project. You can find out more about Katie at her website www.katiemjohn.com or check in with her at twitter @KnightTrilogy.

As part of my work with Little Bird Publishing House (LBPH) I run an anthology project called Dark Heart & Night Shade. The aim of the project is to release two anthologies a year that bring together some of the best emerging talent in the indie scene.

Dark Heart Volume One was published earlier this year in February and brought together a collection of highly talented writers of YA Paranormal Romance, Dark Fairy Tales and Horror.

Night Shade Volume One (It’s older sister) will be released on October 31st of this year and includes some really spooky, sinister little old-school horror stories and poetry from authors across the globe.

The anthologies are a non-profit making project (the small amount that they do make from Amazon – because we unfortunately can’t give it away free – goes to a charity agreed by the contributors.) The primary aim of the project is to connect readers with new writers and vice-versa.

Night Shade Volume One is packed with some really creepy little stories, from traditional haunted landmarks, to poltergeist witches, to possessed possessions. More can be found out about the authors and the anthologies at the official Dark Heart & Night Shade blog http://darkheartandnightshade.blogspot.co.uk/
