Updates from editor K.R. Wieland
We at Quill & Crow hope you all got everything you wanted for Valentine’s Day, including a copy of Crow Calls: Vol 5! But also, we hope that this month has treated you well, and that you’re ready for some new and exciting things coming this spring.
We are pleased to announce the winners of our Beloved contest for Black authors and poets. Daphne Shawn won our story competition with, “It Will Be Known,” and for poetry, Olivia Terry is our winner with, “Cherish or Ruin.” You can find both of these in our next issue of The Crow’s Quill. Thank you to all who submitted to us, and congratulations to the winners!
Rituals & Grimoires is well underway with some truly amazing stories inside. The cover reveal for this next anthology will be coming soon along with pre-orders available Friday. Make sure to follow us on your favorite social media site and keep your eyes open for this one.
If you haven’t checked out our online shop recently, you may want to make your way there. You’ll find new merchandise recently added. We love creating new designs to help you dress like a Crow. So, head on over and support your local murder.
Now, you may have seen some sneak peaks for our upcoming spring novels, and I cannot stress how amazing both of them are. Her Dark Enchantments by Rosalyn Briar is an epic retelling with a twist. Discover the origins of the poisonous spindle and cursed sleep from Sleeping Beauty and follow a girl made of stars and a boy of scars.
The Quiet Stillness of Empty Houses by L.V. Russell will follow soon after. When Theodora takes the job as governess to young Ottoline Thorne, she leaves behind her beloved grandmother and the decaying ruins of her childhood home. But Broken Oak doesn’t reveal its secrets as easily as other homes and someone walks the halls at night. Both of these books will keep you on the edge of your seat, begging you to stay up late to finish. And, best of all, you can preorder them on our website now!
Much love from my Little Black Heart,
