Cara N. Delaney has a new queer Lovecraftian horror book out: Dark Heart of Ilmoure.
Years ago, all she wanted was to leave. Now, a web of secrets might ensnare her forever.
When Iris Grey returns to her hometown of Ilmoure years after a bitter parting, she hopes for reconciliation in the face of a tragedy. Instead, she arrives to a town changed for the worse, a cold welcome from people she once loved, and a family that seems to be keeping secrets from her at every turn.
When those secrets become too heavy to ignore, Iris starts to dig deeper. What she finds leads her to question her very perception of reality. Faced with old wounds and new revelations, Iris finds herself mired in a plot that threatens to swallow herself, the town, and the people she once loved.
Cara lives in a hole in the ground, where she spends her days building whole worlds with nothing but words on the page and a lively imagination.
She may be summoned with a potion brewed from magic beans, but there is no telling what will happen if you do.
Once in a blue moon, you might catch her out and about on a walk through the local vineyards, soaking up the sun and taking pictures of trees.
