Sometimes, you come across an image and it just grabs you and speaks to you. It’s abstract but compared to the previous cover of Sea Witch Song, the abstract underwater background more profoundly conveys the general mood of the story… or so I’d like to think.

Sea Witch Song is the horror novelette that I wrote during NaNoWriMo last year.

Premise

Uma Brown grapples with grief and communes with the hoary beast that killed her lover.

Tarah Jackson died at sea. At Tarah’s wake, a drunken fisherman claims that Tarah was killed by a monster from the deep.

Late that night, while the fishermen who witnessed Tarah’s death drink and wrestle with memories of the monstrous encounter about which they dare not speak, Tarah’s grieving lover, Uma takes a bottle of rum and her fiddle to the sea.

There, Uma plays a song raw with grief. She lets the tears fall free. She drinks from the bottle, cries out to the heavens, and curses the sea. Along comes a monster from the deep.
