The Night of Elisa by Isis Sousa, edited by Clare Diston (Human Voices Editorial Services).

The Night of Elisa is a Gothic novella written by Brazilian-born Isis Sousa. Sousa lives in Norway with her husband and works as an illustrator. When she isn’t working, she writes and illustrates stories – dark tales with female leads that reflect of her love of the Gothic.
