A quote on tense, plus horror fiction news!

“Books let you know what tense they want to be written in.” — David Mitchell, from Make it now: the rise of the present tense in fiction

As a writer working on a fantasy story (the greatest Nosferatu love story of all time) that for some reason is first-person, present tense, I found that quote to be hugely reassuring.

In other news, I am preparing a new horror novelette to go out to a proofreader. If you’ve ever had a cat bring you gifts, you will probably like it.
