The Infanta Triptych

I am exquisitely pleased that a piece I've been working on for weeks The Infanta Triptych has been accepted into Red Skies Press' Their Dark Masters anthology. Editor Mark Anthony Crittenden asked for my piece Walls of Flesh a little while ago and I promised him something extra.

The story's about an ancient set of three conjoined paintings, the subjects of which are vicious, bloodthirsty and diabolical. And they like to play.

I'm very proud to be part of this antho. It has some great authors - Lee Hughes, Barry J. Northern, Mark himself, Erin Cole, Tyree Campbell, Gregory Miller, Melissa Farrar and others. It's going to be a tight fright and I can't wait to see it in print.

Thanks Mark for being such an encouraging and supportive editor.

Might post a teaser shortly before the book is published...


  1. Congratulations Lily!
    I really want to have a go at this one but I'm not sure if I can fit it in or not. It would be great to be in an antho with so many great writers. Congrats again :)

  2. That is fantastic news, Lily! Their Dark Masters sounds like an anthology I need to get a copy of when it goes to print.

  3. Excellent news, Lily! Congratulations!

  4. Congratulations Lily! I'm too young for Red Skies Press sadly...

    Ps, I've nominated you for a blog award. You can check it out on my blog :)

  6. OH, it's a shocker. That's for sure! I'm just thrilled that so many excellent writers lent me their very best :) Take a bow. The Triptych is a masterwork.

  7. Many thanks Mr C. I try my very best. ;)
