Hello everyone!

Here we are at the end of the year again. I have no idea how time goes so fast!
But 2016 is fast-approaching and so are the new Blind Eye Books titles! Langley Hyde will return to the world of her highly acclaimed novel, Highfell Grimoires, with a sequel called Scratcher’s Gold. (More on that below.) In addition, we’ll be releasing Blades of Justice under our new One Block Empire line. Blades of Justice features three wonderful authors—Helen Angove, Jess Faraday, and Rachel Green—telling tales of mystery, featuring lesbian protagonists.

I’d like to take this time to thank you all for your support. We love each and every one of our readers and appreciate all you do for us.

Happy New Year!
Blades of Justice
Coming Fall 2016
Our first linked-story lesbian mystery anthology has been in the works since early summer, and I’m so happy to be finally announcing it now! Blades of Justice features stories by three wonderful women, Helen Angove, Jess Faraday, and Rachel Green. Just have a look at the tantalizing back copy:
The scissors are blacksmith worked, crude and blackened, nothing like any other pair in the village. But they’ve always hung there at the door of the old house. Were they forged there, back when the building was a smithy? What is their connection to Cornwall’s pagan past? Through three hundred years of history they have watched over the women who live at Treagove – and where the scissors are, justice seems to follow.
1798. Despite the danger, the abandoned tin mine had always been the place where Eseld and Rosie felt safest. But that was years ago and Eseld's beloved Rosie is dead, and the place where they used to meet now has significance to someone else.
1887. If anyone deserved to be murdered, it was Davy Sowden. When someone finally does the village a favor, the problem will not be finding out who did it, but rather, who didn’t.
1974. Mel never really knew her mum but is all too familiar with her dad's fists. When her black eye provokes concern from her best friend Bernadette, her dad had better watch out.
All justice requires is a sharp blade. Who says the tool can’t be domestic?
Jess Faraday is the author of the Ira Adler series (including the Lambda-shortlisted Affair of the Porcelain Dog), the steampunk thriller The Left Hand of Justice, the Stein & Vincent adventures, and numerous articles, short stories, and translations. She teaches a short fiction course at Pasadena City College, and moonlights as the mystery editor for 
Elm Books.
She is a graduate of the University of Arizona (B.A.) and UCLA (M.A.), and a member of Sisters in Crime and International Thriller Writers.
She is currently embarking on a series of humorous ghost stories set in 1890s California.
Helen Angove began her working life as an electrical engineer on the south coast of England, and then worked briefly as a pricing analyst for an electricity supply company, which was as much fun as it sounds. After this she trained to be a priest in the Church of England, and spent seven years in full-time ministry, before deciding that she had to leave before she tore out all her hair. These days she is living with her husband and two children in Southern California, and, against all the dictates of common sense, pursuing a career in writing. 

Helen’s professional writing experience includes a long-running series of monthly articles for the British website 
Surefish, on the experiences of a British expatriate living in the United States, and three short stories - two published in science fiction anthologies, and one in an anthology of paranormal murder mysteries. She has written three novels, and is currently working on a fourth.
Rachel Green is a forty-something writer from Derbyshire. She lives with her two partners and dogs. Although primarily a novelist, she also writes plays and poetry. When not writing, Rachel walks her dogs, potters in the garden and trains in KAPAP, the Israeli combat style. She twitters a haiku daily. She can also be found on Facebook (leatherdykeuk) and Twitter (@leatherdykeuk)
