Indie Author Showcase 11: James Everington

Happy Monday to you all!

Today's Indie Author Showcase features James Everington, a writer from Nottingham, England. He specializes in dark, supernatural fiction. According to the author, his work tends to be ambiguous and unexplainable.The work featured today is a short story. Be sure to jump over to his blog where he has been posting some notes about the origins of his own short stories; I always find it fascinating to discover the kernels of reality behind an author's fiction. James offers such gems in his most recent blog posts.

And now, from the author himself...

Book Title: Feed The Enemy

Genre: Literary/Psychological

Your Book in 1000 Words or Less: A short story about a woman attempting to flee London due to a terrorist threat. Her husband, who works for the government, encourages her to leave. But as the day goes on it becomes apparent he has his own reasons for wanting her out the way, and the real source of her fears might be closer to home...

Something Unique About Your Writing Process: I mainly write short stories, and I'm interested in blurring the boundaries between so-called 'literary' fiction and so-called 'genre' fiction. Influences are people like Shirley Jackson and Ramsey Campbell.

  1. Hi - thanks for this!

    I should point out that this particular story has no supernatural element (it's still pretty dark though!). That's why it's published separately from those coming in 'The Other Room'....
