I am finally having a launch for my collection of short fiction, HARD PLACES, at Everybody Knows Books (Rear 4 Peel Street Sth, Ballarat, facing Little Bridge Street) at 4.00pm on Saturday, 22 October 2022.
Local author Steven Paulsen and I will be having a chat about the book and why I like to write the kind of stories that make you wish you’d checked under the bed before turning off the lights. If you’ll be in Ballarat, come along for fine conversation, wine and nibbles!

“Hard Places collects the very best of Kirstyn McDermott’s short fiction written over the past twenty years along with a previously unpublished novella. From unsettling obsessions and brutal body horror to unexpected monsters and ghosts drifting through suburbia, these stories run the gamut of horror and the contemporary gothic. By turns harrowing, provocative and poignant, this collection will haunt you long after the last page is turned.”
