The Damned

Pronunciation in the World of the Ellderet. Or, My Experience Growing Up Bilingual.

This post is spoiler free. Here only for the pronunciation? I gotcha. Scroll down to Part 2 and Fortune be with you. But if you want to get a clear sense where my pronunciations come from and why I have some names pronounced two different ways, then read on …

Latinx author and publisher E.M. Markoff writes about damaged heroes and imperfect villains. Works include The Deadbringr, To Nurture & Kill, and "Leaving the #9." Under her imprint Tomes & Coffee Press, she published Tales for the Camp Fire, a charity anthology to raise money for California wildfire recovery and relief efforts. She is a member of the Horror Writers Association and is mostly made up of coffee, cat hair, and whiskey.

Gracias (thank you) to everyone who made their voice heard on IG, FB, and via email about which cover to use for “Leaving the #9.” The vote counts for Versions B and C were very close. At SVCC 2019, a few of my Ellderet readers posed the idea of having both Version B and Version C available for purchase.🤔 Food for thought for future short story covers, for sure.

Version C, the narrow winner
