My Laziness Runeth Over

Hello all! I am back! I took a little time off from my writer's blog to focus on my teaching and end-of-the-school-year activities. I know...no excuses...but I am sorry that I did not post in April or May so I will rectify that now...June!

First of all, THANK YOU to all who bought and read my story "Snapshots of Hell." I was extremely pleased with the expertise and professional manner in which Phrenic Press went to work on my story to make it a taut read with a great cover! I'm not too sure about Amazon ranking, but I did reach 75,000 at one point, which I am told is 'pretty good.'

If you have not read my story yet, please go to Amazon and get it! It is FREE with Amazon Prime or .99 cents without. I guarantee that you will like it. And, if possible, please recommend it for a Bram Stoker Award with the Horror Writer's Association. I would be thrilled and honored to win a Stoker!

Now, on to the business at hand...So much happened in March that April was quite the opposite. Maybe this is due to tax deadlines here in the U.S.? Well, May saw an anthology finally come out that I had subbed for over a year ago:

IN THE DARKNESS -anthology from Thirteen O'Clock Press (U.K.) came out in May. This one is edited by the wonderful Dorothy Davies. Here is their promotional blurb about it:

In the darkness anything can happen and often does – if this wild collection of stories is anything to go by! Under cover of the dark many a nefarious and often strange happening is going on, without our knowledge until it’s too late and we are lost… Thirteen Press authors have come up with a startling variety of stories on the theme of In The Darkness, murder and mayhem breaking loose everywhere. Come join us in the dark, don’t be afraid, we don’t bite – not too often anyway…

You can pick it up as a paperback here:


Or as an ebook here:


In other news, June is looking up with a few more anthologies coming out. This time around Dead Guns Press is releasing two themed anthologies with some of my stories in them:




I am told that these titles should be out very soon so keep checking back here for more info.

That is all for right now, but I will do a June update so check back regularly. Have a great summer! Cheers, Greg
