Choking Back the Devil, the follow-up to Donna Lynch’s Bram Stoker Award nominated collection Witches, is scheduled to be released on July 17th.
Today we are revealing the cover by artist Steven Archer and launching a special pre-order!
“Choking Back the Devil is unlike any other poetry collection you’ve ever read. Donna Lynch crafts beautifully terrifying worlds, packed with dense imagery and horrifying yet lush details. This collection will get your blood racing even as it breaks your heart.” —Gwendolyn Kiste, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Rust Maidens
Personalized Pre-order Available for a Limited Time
Books will include an extra page with the person’s name you want the book inscribed to and an unique inscription by Donna. The inscription will either be a ward to guard against the devil or a curse against enemies. Limited to 100 copies. Pre-orders accepted through July 16.
Choking Back the Devil by Donna Lynch is an invocation, an ancient invitation that summons the darkness within and channels those lonely spirits looking for a host. It’s a collection that lives in the realm of ghosts and family curses, witchcraft and urban legends, and if you’re brave enough to peek behind the veil, the hauntings that permeate these pages will break seals and open doorways, cut throats and shatter mirrors.
From Donna: “With Choking Back the Devil you may notice there are just as many faceless horrors as monsters. I think it’s important to spotlight them because giving your fears a face—especially that of something you know you’ll probably never encounter—removes you a step or two from that fear, to safety, where it can’t really touch you. But strip off that mask, and you’ll see it’s you. You’ll see it’s every mystery. Every unanswerable question. You’ll see it’s the entire universe, and you will be helpless.”
