My short story Ligeia has been published by Corona Books in their anthology of ghost stories. It is available in digital and print. Here is a review mentioning my story:

A solid collection of ghost stories that are well-written and provide a range of experiences. I wasn’t particularly scared by any of them but they are still memorable nonetheless.

My picks of the bunch are ‘Ligeia’ by Mike Sherer, a seductive tale of a dangerous Siren; ‘The Garden’ by Sue Eaton, an interesting take of eco-horror; ‘Swim At Your Own Risk’ by Matthew Gorman, simple yet terribly effective; ‘The Walking Woman’ by Christopher Wilson, a tragic haunting story, and ‘Everything Here Is Mine’ by J.A.W McCarthy, a dark tale of vengeance. Overall, an entertaining horror anthology and I’m happy to discover new authors to read!
