Join me and author of Rarkyn’s FamiliarNikky Lee for a virtual book launch March 9th 19:30-20:30 AEDST (+11:00 UTC) for The Devil and the Loch Ard Gorge. A belated launch due to my extended illness but it’s finally time to celebrate this gothic horror novelette.
The virtual launch will be held live on Facebook and will remain available as a recording on my Facebook page. Nikky and I will discuss all things gothic horror, hauntings, traditional gothic literature and the history behind the ill-fated Loch Ard shipwreck in 1878 off the infamous southern Australian shipwreck coast.
SIGNED copies of the The Devil and the Loch Ard Gorge are available for purchase via my Shop or kindle and paperback on Amazon here. SIGNED bookplates are also available from my Shop for overseas customers where postage from Australia is unfortunately prohibitive.
Hope to see you there and join the online discussion or via the discussion board!
In my novelette The Devil & the Loch Ard Gorge, I was inspired by Victorian era Gothic literature and the history of the Australian shipwrecks. You can read more about the history of the Loch Ard shipwreck here.
My initial inspiration for The Devil & the Loch Ard Gorge was a song “The Loch Ard Gorge” by Australian folk singer/songwriter Russel Morris which retells the historical shipwreck event in a magically haunting way.
Seána McKinnon, daughter of a well-to-do London businessman and his wife, finds love in the arms of a lowly artist. Her parent’s disapproval of their relationship lays heavy on her heart until, borne of frustration, she makes a bargain with the Devil that will be with her for all her years.
When she flees Gravesend on the ill-fated Loch Ard, dark shadows sail with her.
Will Seána ever be free of the horrors that defile her past and haunt her future?
