The release date for my short story collection Growth is less than two months away. On June 20 you can get your hands on the book, and if you preorder the e-book you’ll have it auto-delivered as soon as it’s released.
Twenty dark tales of psychosocial horror fill the pages of Elin Olausson’s stunningly creepy short story collection debut. Three sisters live isolated in the wilderness, unbothered, until their world shatters with the arrival of a stranger. A young man revisits the childhood home where his sister danced and his mother died. A woman is promised the house of her dreams and goes mad when she doesn’t get it. Two evil teens stand united against the world, until one of them falls in love. In an abandoned asylum in the desert, a girl chants her own name.
Filled with madness, darkness and the truth of the human condition, Olausson’s stories will leave readers thinking about their own sanity and questioning the motives of those who are closest to them.
Twiggy and Bell are cousins, best friends, freaks, and outcasts, and they have no need for other people—until Twiggy finds himself in love with beautiful Martin and is torn between the normal world and his and Bell’s twisted darkness.
In celebration of Pride month, all editor proceeds from sales of Unburied during the month of June will be donated to Rainbow Railroad.
Happy release day to everyone involved in the amazing psychological horror anthology Shadowy Natures, a project I’m super proud to be part of. The anthology is published by Dark Ink Publishing, and you can read more about it here.
Dark Ink Publishing has interviewed me about my writing in general and the short story Uncle in particular. If you’re interested in reading Uncle (and lots of other psychological horror stories), you can preorder Shadowy Natures, or buy it when it’s out on September 10.
