Horror. Fantasy. Speculative.



Inner Circle Writers’ Magazine

ICWM Christmas IssueI’ve been featured in the Christmas edition of the Inner Circle Writers’ magazine. It’s a pretty comprehensive interview where I talk about writing and personal stuff and try to be funny.

There’s also a really weird and ugly picture of me on the cover. I’d accidentally sent my editor the wrong pic and by the time I realised, it was too late to change it. So, now if I’m ever famous, this pic will haunt me.

The mag is predominantly a writer’s magazine, but also includes great fiction and free gifts for readers. You can grab a copy for £2.00 or subscribe for £20.00 to get 12 issues!

“Inside the inspiring eleventh issue, rising star author R. A. Goli talks about her life and work. We get a glimpse behind the scenes of Welcome to Blekeleigh Court , plus enjoy our Christmas fiction including Love’s Gift by C. L. Steele, The Bard by Mark Kodama, Claire’s Special Day by Shawn M. Klimek read more…”

Lulu Sale

Lulu currently has 10% off print books. If you haven’t already, what a great time to grab yourself a copy of my short story collection, Unfettered.

Unfettered pic - 3 books.png

A bird succubus that comes in a storm; a bed-and-breakfast from Hell; secret histories from before fairy tales and myths; an asylum from beyond your darkest nightmares… This is a collection not for the squeamish or faint hearted – be prepared to have your spine tingled: this is not a book to be read alone, at night. But here you’ll also meet wonders, including fairies who wield snow and a horse that rides on the air; you’ll participate in a mermaid orgy and see how sensuality can lead to predicting the future. Including the award-winning story ‘A Flicker of Time’, this collection displays the creative talents of the Australian author R. A. Goli – a rising star in the fiction

P.A.C.D. The Kitchen Of Tomorrow, Today!

My erotic horror story, P.A.C.D. THE KITCHEN OF TOMORROW, TODAY!, will be published in the Sinister Sheets anthology.  A neglectful husband buys his wife a futuristic Personal Automated Culinary Droid (P.A.C.D.), but it’s a recipe for disaster.

The exciting thing about Sinister Sheets is the black pages!

Sex and horror are often considered separate. Notable exceptions include the “sex means death” rule of slasher films; Stephen King’s GERALD’S GAME; and the danger of sex throughout Gillian Flynn’s dark novels. In this collection, erotic horror is best defined as literature that arouses the reader…and then makes them complicit in the horror that ensues because of that arousal. These stories will make you howl.

Available from Amazon AU/Amazon US.
