This pretty, blue bird is one year old today!!!
It’s been quite a ride — truly life changing, and deeply healing on a personal level. I’m beyond thrilled that Cassie and Pepper-Man are still going strong and picking up new readers.
“Smart, creepy . . . glittering and menacing . . . deliciously terrifying.” Laird Hunt, Guardian
“This beguiling and unsettling debut had me hooked from the first page . . . a unique, strange and defiant folk horror story which lingers long in the memory.” Daily Express
Pepper-Man (the German edition of YOU LET ME IN), just won ‘Book of the Year 2020’, courtesy of the good people at Phantastik-Couch.de.
The jury said:
With her debut, Camilla Bruce presents a gripping genre mix of horror, thriller and drama. The fairies, more in fairy tales, are dusted off and drawn into the supposed reality in a dangerously grotesque way. An ambiguous horror tale that stays in people’s heads for a long time thanks to its clever narrative.
