Let's Get Witchy

Saint Grit also features six original interior illustrations from Betty Rocksteady. Here is one of them now:
Here’s what Daniel Kraus, author of WHALEFALL, had to say about SAINT GRIT:
“This is the real stuff I’m always chasing, every chapter a warning, every page a curse, entirely irresistible to read even as you know reading it will damn you forever.”
And here’s the official “back cover” synopsis to give you more of an idea of what this novella is about:
One brooding summer, Nadine Boone pricks herself on a poisonous manchineel tree in the Florida backcountry. Upon self-orgasm, Nadine conjures a witch that she calls Saint Grit. Pitched as Gummo meets The Craft, Saint Grit grows inside of Nadine over three decades, wreaking repulsive havoc on a suspicious cast of characters in a small town known as Sugar Bends.
To celebrate the book’s release, Kayli and I had an in-depth conversation about all things Saint Grit. Watch it HERE.
