I have an evil pumpkin…

The husband and the daughter brought it home at the weekend from Ye Olde Pumpkyn Fayre. It is easily the largest pumpkin I’ve ever seen close up, although possibly my life has been somewhat sheltered, curcurbita-wise.

It looks (excuse pun) a bit squashed and although not yet carved, it still manages to give the impression that it is glaring at me across the room. Biding its time until the 31st when it will wreak its awful orange vengeance. Am reminded of the Buffy episode with the zombie-raising tribal mask: “It’s angry at the room. It wants the room to suffer.”

Expect the dead to start walking around Hertfordshire any day now…

In other news: Bedknobs and Beanstalks is out today!

Featuring my story “The King’s Honor”, an m/m retelling of The Twelve Dancing HussiesPrincesses, plus the following:

OMG!!!

JL Merrow is in business!

I have just had an email to say that a short story of mine has, for the first time ever, been accepted for publication by those lovely people at Torquere Press!

It's called (unless they change it; I have not a clue how these things work) Different Strengths and was submitted for the Cherry Anthology due out in July. It's set in Alabama, which should nicely confuse everyone who knows I'm English, and is the story of a young IT geek finding love on his first visit to a strip joint. As, ahem, you do... *g*

I'm so excited!!!
