Shelf Edition: Wendy Dalrymple

Shelf Edition: Wendy Dalrymple


Today we welcome author Wendy Dalrymple to Horror Spotlight to show us her shelfies. Welcome, Wendy!

Do you have any recent favorite Horror Spotlight books?

Yes! Just from the last couple of years, WHEN THE RECKONING COMES by LaTanya McQueen, BUNNY by Mona Awad, BELOW by Laurel Hightower and COOL S by Die Booth have been some of my favorites. I also just finished SUCH SHARP TEETH by Rachel Harrison and I LOVED it.

Which Horror Spotlight books do you currently have on your TBR?

Definitely, Stephanie Parent’s poetry collection EVERY POEM A POTION, EVERY SONG A SPELL is on my TBR and so is April Yates’s gothic novella ASHTHORNE. I’m always looking out for dark poetry and gothic horror to add to my collection.

Where do you find recommendations? Are there any Horror Spotlight books that have been recommended to you that you loved?

I am ashamed to admit that I’m chronically online, but that’s where all of my book friends are! I love getting recs from book bloggers, fellow authors and readers on Twitter, Bookstagram and BookTok. I typically try to seek out indie or small press horror (and romance!). I think that I first saw WHEN THE RECKONING COMES on Horror Spotlight and I’ve discovered so many other amazing authors there too!    


Where do you prefer to shop for books?

When I can, I like to buy direct from the author or publisher. I particularly enjoy buying signed copies from my fellow authors. If you’re my author pal, I guarantee I’ll eventually have at least one of your books.

Are there any upcoming Horror Spotlight releases you're excited about?

THE HAUNTING OF ALEJANDRA by V. Castro is one that I definitely have my eye on!

In regards to your own work, tell our readers a little bit about what’s new and/or coming up for you.

My horror novella IT DOESN’T GO AWAY is set to be published with 3-B Publishing on Feb 14, 2023. This is a grief/psychological horror novella about a woman that has experienced a recent tragedy, and despite her best instincts, decides to go on a through-hiking trip on the Appalachian Trail. Along the way she literally faces her demons in more ways than one.

I’m really excited to be working with 3-B Publishing. They are a new publisher run by a team that I admire and trust and they’re going to be publishing a lot of excellent authors in the coming year! I also have two more horror novellas set to come out this year with Bryant Street Shorts, GIRLS NIGHT OUT, which is a body horror novella about a bridal shower gone sideways and PARASOCIAL, a novella about a parasocial relationship between a super fan and a celebrity. These stories will be available exclusively at Scribd in ebook and audio and in paperback at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
