Often quirky, always queer, Elna Holst is an unapologetic genre bender who writes anything from lesbian lust and love stories to the odd existentialist horror piece. Find her on Instagram (@elnaholstwrites) or Goodreads (yes, you're right here).

New ebook In the Palm out in May

After a long gestation process, my Robinson Crusoe-inspired novella/short novel In the Palm will be released in May, and to say that I'm over the moon to share it with you would be an understatement.

Up for pre-order on the NSP website on May 17, why don't you just go ahead and add it to your To Read, and make my day in the process?

Oscar Wilde
“The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

Truman Capote
“You can't blame a writer for what the characters say.”
Truman Capote

Jeanette Winterson
“You’ll get over it…” It’s the clichés that cause the trouble. To lose someone you love is to alter your life for ever. You don’t get over it because ‘it” is the person you loved. The pain stops, there are new people, but the gap never closes. How could it? The particularness of someone who mattered enough to grieve over is not made anodyne by death. This hole in my heart is in the shape of you and no-one else can fit it. Why would I want them to?”
Jeanette Winterson, Written on the Body

Jeanette Winterson
“While I can’t have you, I long for you. I am the kind of person who would miss a train or a plane to meet you for coffee. I’d take a taxi across town to see you for ten minutes. I’d wait outside all night if I thought you would open the door in the morning. If you call me and say ‘Will you…’ my answer is ‘Yes’, before your sentence is out. I spin worlds where we could be together. I dream you. For me, imagination and desire are very close.”
Jeanette Winterson

Jeanette Winterson
“Do you fall in love often?"

Yes often. With a view, with a book, with a dog, a cat, with numbers, with friends, with complete strangers, with nothing at all.”
Jeanette Winterson, Gut Symmetries
