It’s Halloween! And you know what that means: time to tell some spooky stories to each other.
Horror holds a special place in my heart. Like a knife stabbed into just the right place. I’ve always enjoyed incorporated it into my writing in some way.
So if you are looking for something scary to read, I have several bloody chunks you might be interested in. Most of which can be read for free!
Dead Meat – Published by Tell-Tale Press. Horrible things happen to an old woman on a farm. That’s horror, right?
The Facts in the Case of Edgar Allan Poe – Published by Crimson Streets. What if one of Poe’s stories was based off of true events from his life?
Loose Teeth – Part of my old Free Fiction Friday series. Maybe there is such a thing as easy money…
The Howard Family Tradition – Published in Weirdbook, and an Honorable Mention for Best Horror of the Year! I’m hoping this will make you question your hotel choices going forward.
And, as always, check out my other writing here.
The Blood Tomes, Volume 2: Creatures is officially for sale! Check it out on Amazon.
Creatures. In the horror genre, the word conjures primal instincts of fear and flight, of tingles down your spine and creeping terror across your brain. From towering giants to crawling atrocities, we present to you twenty stories from the minds of award-winning and experienced authors and newcomers to the genre from across the globe. We are proud to feature these fine ladies and gentlemen and their talents between these pages.

May the creatures in this anthology awaken your primitive senses and make you think twice before reaching for that light to turn it off and plunge you into darkness.
Tell-Tale Press is soon releasing volume two of their short story collection series. Blood Tomes: Creatures contains Dead Meat, my story about a farm that becomes overrun by crazed animals.
Pre-orders start May 17th, and the books will be released on May 23rd. Check them out!
And if you happen to be in the Phoenix area on May 23rd-26th, visit the Phoenix Fan Fusion convention where Tell-Tale Press will have a table full of fun stuff. (Also, say Hi to Jeff Goldblum and tell him The Fly is amazing.)
My story, Pollen, has been published in the new anthology, Future Visions: Volume 3.
A dying ecology. An agricultural system on the brink of collapse. Science has a solution: robotic bees. Tiny flying drones capable of crop pollination. A lot is riding on this first test. But for Abby and her fellow roboticists, the results may be more than they bargained for.
Check it out and let me know what you think.
My story, “60 Seconds Remaining” appears in the new anthology from The Arcanist showing off the first year of their publication.
Check it out for that and 53 other tales of weirdness. You can order both the print and eBooks from Amazon.
