Here in the Dark

Coming Summer 2023 from Shotgun Honey.

Here in the Dark is a collection of Grit Lit stories about women and girls. Set mostly in Southern Appalachia, and covering the spectrum from crime to horror, these stories focus on the female experience of the often male dominated world of lawlessness. The title story, “Here in the Dark,” will bring readers of Lucas’ first novel Songbirds and Stray Dogs back to Flat Rock, North Carolina with Cora’s story, and answers the question of what is in that record case. From Deputy Sheriffs and EMTs, to the little girl next door, and mothers of all kinds, the tales of the women from Here in the Dark will devastate and inspire, hurt and heal.
