Deathly December!

Ah...May all the good tidings of the season be yours! It is a time for gifts so here is my humble offering...the Schlock! Webzine December issue is out now, and features one of my most reprinted stories; "Glint of Evil."

The issue can be read for FREE (this is your gift!) on their website, but for an even better reading experience, go to Amazon and get the FREE kindle version to read wherever you go.

Here is the Schlock! website, which is full of great reads:


And here it is on Amazon for kindle (also FREE):


"Glint of Evil" is an early story of mine and although it may not be my best work, I am still proud of it. My story stems from ideas that were circulating in my head after reading a lot of H.P. Lovecraft...specifically "The Tomb." I wanted to write something that sounded a bit 19th century/archaic, yet had a creep factor that made you wonder just how true the events/places are. To be honest, all of the names and places and even the situation with the dam and the flooding are all REAL! I did my research. I wanted realism. I entwined a horror story around reality, which to me is how the best horror stories should be.

HUGE THANKS to GAVIN CHAPPELL AND SCHLOCK! WEBZINE! They are doing their best to give up and coming writers a place to start.

NEWS FLASH!!! CELLAR DOOR II out now in both kindle and paperback form at Amazon. Here's what it looks like:

I originally wrote a story titled "Sempiternal Denouement" (a.k.a "Gold Rush") specifically for CELLAR DOOR Volume I, but for some unknown reason, it didn't make the cut. So here it is now. James Ward Kirk Fiction decided to pick it up for Volume II. This is a horror story of a different sort. No monsters. No murderers. Just the dead and nature in the Louisiana swamps over a hundred years back.

Get CELLAR DOOR II here for kindle:


Or here for a paperback copy:


I don't have much else going on this month. I just plan to write as much as I can and have even started a novel. January looks to be exciting with several of my newest stories seeing print. I have a reprint of my award-winning story, "The Horror at Engle Farm," in the January issue of NIGHTMARE ILLUSTRATED. The drawings that accompany my story are by Niall Parkinson and the layout looks exciting. I also have one other surprise printing that I can't say much about right now, but I will say that there is a new horror publisher in town that is getting ready to unleash some amazing horror and I am a part of their release schedule with a previously unpublished long-short story (8,000+ words) entitled "Snapshots of Hell." Don't miss that!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
