New and forthcoming books

A new collection of original and reimagined fairy tales about shapeshifting women, Foxfire, Wolfskin, will be published in September 2019, and Hagitude, a nonfiction book about myths and stories of female elderhood, is scheduled for publication in spring 2021. 

Drawing on myth and fairy tales found across Europe, this collection brings to life women’s remarkable ability to transform themselves in the face of seemingly impossible circumstances.

‘A deeply evocative and haunting collection. Humming with the strength of our immutable voices, each story sings with the transformation that is possible when women take agency of our lives. I want to press this powerful book into the hands of everyone I know and say, listen.’ Holly Ringland, author of The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart

The enchanted life is possible for anyone, no matter where they live. It is creative, intuitive, imaginative; it thrives on work that has heart and meaning; it respects the instinctive knowledge and playfulness of children, and relishes story, poetry and art. For all those who feel an emptiness at the heart of modern life – who long for a more authentic, harmonious and connected lifestyle.

‘Engaging and inspiring, Sharon Blackie’s beautiful book will empower people to find wonder in everyday life.’ Clover Stroud, author of ‘The Wild Other’

‘… mind-blowing in the most profound and exhilarating sense. This is an anthem for all we could be. It’s an essential book for this, the most critical of recent times.’ Manda Scott, author of the ‘Boudica’ series & ‘Into the Fire’

‘A powerful and inspiring exploration of the female relationship with landscape.’ Melissa Harrison, author of the Costa-Shortlisted ‘At Hawthorn Time’

 

2016 NAUTILUS BOOK AWARD WINNER

‘Hugely potent. A tribute to the art of storytelling that is itself an affecting and inspiring story.’ The Independent on Sunday

‘Powerful (reminiscent of The English Patient), filmic, and achieving the kind of symmetry that novels often aspire to, but rarely reach.’ The Scotsman
