"[Annalisa] has the ability to really make the ordinary life seem fantastical and this is a collection you will not be disappointed by." - Katy the Sleepy Reader
"A lovely eclectic collection of playful, poignant and haunting stories, hard to choose a favourite (although it might be The Fear of Ghosts), each one is a gem." - Anne Goodwin
"Crawford is a skilful short story writer. In this collection, melding mundane life with the fantastical, she deftly explores the internal worlds of her characters, creating a haunting and frequently wistful collection of short stories that will possess the reader’s imagination long after the last page has been turned." - J.S.Watts
Life can change in an instant, but that’s not always a bad thing.
A hotel explodes leaving staff and guests in peril; a woman retrieves an old clock from
the attic with disturbing consequences; one man leaves heart break behind him,
and another arrives to bring adventure.
In this haunting collection, Annalisa Crawford creates characters
who will charm, captivate, and intrigue you.
I'm excited to announce that I have regained the rights to my first two books - Cat & The Dreamer and Our Beautiful Child - by mutual consent with my publisher Vagabondage Press.
Over the coming months I will be refreshing and relaunching the titles with new covers - and, for the first time, Cat & The Dreamer will be available as a paperback.
I have always loved the stories contained in these books, and the characters who inhabit them. I am grateful to Vagabondage Press for taking care of them, and I'm looking forward to the next stage.
How my books have changed since this marketing photo was taken in 2020!
The Clock in My Mother's House is due for release in January 2023, and available for pre-order on Kindle right now. Other retailers will be added in due course.
You can add it to your Goodreads shelves here.
What does an author do when they're blocked on a new novel?
They design new covers for books that already exist, and while they're at it, they decide to release a brand new paperback version of the same book.
That Sadie Thing has been out of print (although still available as an ebook) for a couple of years, but I love books and I really wanted these stories to be back in print, so here they are. The stories are the same, just a little more polished.
I'm not sharing any links at the moment because the updating process can be rather slow, but if your favourite retailer has this cover, it's the new version And if it doesn't, please let me know.
Saturday 16th July saw me heading to Redruth on a very hot afternoon for the ceremony for the Holyer an Gof awards.
Sadly I didn't win my category Fiction for Adults: Literary Fiction but I did enjoy the ceremony, listened to some wonderful music by Richard Trethewey - a nominee in a different category - and met fellow nominee in my category Charlie Carroll. The winner in our category was Ruth Saberton for Oyster Shore which I'll be reading soon.
Congratulations to all the nominated authors, the category winners, and the overall cup winners. You can see a full list here.
