Your Free Short Story is Waiting!
A short and twisted retelling of The Buried Moon, an English fairy tale.
In Aramet, a wise queen rules over a luscious and peaceful land. Surrounded by seven fine sons, six of which have brought her the treasures of her kingdom, only August, the youngest prince, born with a caul over his face, has yet to deliver his gift.
Queen Allegra fears for August's safety so she asks of him one thing she knows he cannot bring. But there is always something watching from the shadows, waiting for its chance to rip away the goodness and leave corruption in its place.

The Ruin of Delicate Things
"Gorgeously written and compulsively readable, The Ruin of Delicate Things is as beautiful as it is tragic. Beverley Lee's work has always been memorable for its sumptuous descriptions and well-drawn characters, but this fiendishly macabre fairytale puts her right at the top of my must-read list. Whether or not you keep your doors and windows shut, this one will sink its teeth into you."
- Kealan Patrick Burke,
Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Kin and Master of the Moors
Praise for The Gabriel Davenport Series
Beverley Lee has apparently never heard of second-book-syndrome! A Shining in the Shadows is the sequel to her amazing debut The Making of Gabriel Davenport and it does not disappoint!
Absolutely adored this book! I'm truly devastated that I have finished it! Gripped from page 1, fell more in love Gabriel and his family. I cannot recommend this book highly enough!
Brilliantly written, it satisfied my need for a book that is original, suspenseful, and intense. It is a book you won't forget, one you will want to keep and read again. Be warned-you won't want to put it down once you start!
Beverley Lee's writing is very clean. The editing was flawless, and I adored how fast the pace of the novel was. This is a perfect novel for those who enjoy horror/darker novels, as well as those who aren't experienced in the genre at all. It is one of those rare novels that is dark, but not crass or grotesque...
It’s always an exciting surprise to come across a début author who has such a strong voice and such absolute confidence in the delivery of their story, and Beverley Lee does not disappoint with her first novel, ‘The Making of Gabriel Davenport’.
