"Kim writes amazing tales driven by her passion for medieval literature and history,” Ticonderoga Editor Russell B Farr said.
"We’re excited to be able to share in a project that is so dear to one of Australia’s unique voices," Russell B Farr added.

Her debut novel, The Infernal, won two Aurealis Awards (Best Fantasy Novel and Best Horror Novel), published as a limited edition hardcover by Ticonderoga.
The contents include “The Death of Pamela”, “Crown of Rowan”, “Wild Dreams of Blood”, and two as-yet unwritten novellas tentatively titled “The Year of Ancient Ghosts” and “The Lark and the River”.

The hefty volume published by Ticonderoga Books assembles thirty-three stories where diversity is the main feature. Some tales have a distinct Aussie taste in terms of location and local sub-culture, which contributes to shed a new light on vampires, their habits and their personalities.

This book tickled me in so many ways. It's imaginative, well-written, fearless. Yes, fearless - this is a book which doesn't give a hillbilly rat's tail dipped in bourbon whether you like it or not.

Heather Royston at She Never Slept reviews More Scary Kisses and scores it 4 out of 5.
"I’ve been looking forward to reading “More Scary Kisses” since I finished the first volume awhile back and I’d been saving it for awhile. I finally got to crack it recently and was quite excited at what goodies it would hold. The introduction only fueled my excitement."
