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.
Check out Crimson Streets for a new story of mine called The Facts in the Case of Edgar Allan Poe.
What if there were some lost documents out there that pointed to the sinister way Edgar Allan Poe really died? I actually did some research for this story, and maybe I really found documents like that. Maybe this is my way of letting the world know the truth. Or maybe not.
This story is accompanied by some great art work from John Waltrip. Check out the gothic horror vibe! It fits the piece well.
A new story of mine has been published on The Arcanist today.
60 Seconds Remaining is about what happens during his last minute on an exploding spaceship.
For the curious, this story originated from my 14 day writing challenge, where I was tasked with writing a story based on the first sentence I heard when turning on the TV.
Enjoy it! And while you are there check out the other cool stories and images published by The Arcanist.
Do you like short fiction? Do you like horror? Do you like supporting authors for their work? If the answer to one or more of the above is an enthusiastic “Yes!” then I’ve got the book for you.
It’s called Drabbledark: An Anthology of Dark Drabbles. It’s short flash fiction of the horror variety, edited by Eric Fomley. Inside is a story of mine called “I Do”.
If you are interested, you should check out the Kickstarter campaign. Back the campaign to get the book cheap and help increase the amount of pay that the authors gets for their work.
I’m looking forward to seeing the final copy!
The new issue of Devilfish Review is out, and it contains a story of mine called Diminishing Returns.
I wrote this a long time ago after reading Chuck Palahniuk’s essays on writing. I have a different style now but I do like some of the language in this one. Let me know what you think!
