Roan Parrish joins Sounds Like Halloween with a reading from her ghost story Touched from the Follow Me Into Darkness anthology.
About Follow Me Into Darkness and Touched:
Carnivale is a time for decadence, for revelry, and for mischief. A time when we shed the figurative masks we wear in everyday life in favor of new ones… ones that allow us to be a little bolder, a little more adventurous, and perhaps a little truer to ourselves. Follow Me Into Darkness is a compilation of original tales of queer romance by five of the premier authors of contemporary romance.
Sometimes when he touches people Philippe Rondeau sees their future. It’s erratic and inconvenient, but mostly he’s learned to deal with it. Sure he hasn’t found true love yet, but he has friends and lovers, and is kept busy running his family’s jazz club in Prohibition-era New Orleans. But now it’s Mardi Gras and all bets are off. In the space of one night, Philippe falls under the spell of jazz musician Claude and learns a terrible secret about his powers. If Philippe is certain of anything it’s that the future can be tricky, but the chance at love makes it all seem worthwhile.
About Roan Parrish:
Roan Parrish lives in Philadelphia, where she is gradually attempting to write love stories in every genre.
When not writing, she can usually be found cutting her friends’ hair, meandering through whatever city she’s in while listening to torch songs and melodic death metal, or cooking overly elaborate meals. She loves bonfires, winter beaches, minor chord harmonies, and self-tattooing. One time she may or may not have baked a six-layer chocolate cake and then thrown it out the window in a fit of pique.
After Follow Me Into Darkness, check out her upcoming release, The Remaking of Corbin Wale.

Welcome to…TIME TO TEASE! A Friday post that hopefully will titillate and tempt and ultimately tide you over until the real deal hits the site next week!
“What exactly are you teasing us with, Judith?” you are no doubt asking yourself. Well, let me tell you!
About two weeks ago, I sat down with author, Roan Parrish, and recorded a podcast that ran the gamut of literature: from House of Leaves to China Mieville, from Donna Tartt to Pig Latin as language of choice among the hip English Professor crowd. If you can imagine it, we discussed it. We talked a lot. A LOT. Most importantly though, we talked Out of Nowhere, Parrish’s upcoming release. It’s the much talked about sequel to her stunning debut, In the Middle of Somewhere, and it will gut you. No joke. Gut. You. But in the best possible way (if there is a best possible way to sob and ugly cry and roll around on the floor devastated that it’s over while riding the subway).
So today’s teaser is a teeny, tiny little outtake from that recording session where both of us reveal a secret of sorts. So…sit back and enjoy a little Roan Parrish in anticipation of her podcast out next week!
