Another trip around the sun finds us at the Pikes Peak Library District’s 2017 Mountain of Authors event. Throughout the day we passed out group information (and candy…lots and lots of candy) and promoted our anthology, ONE. There’s little that tops socializing with fellow authors.

I am pleased to announce THE HORROR SOCIETY’S anthology FORGOTTEN PLACES. This includes a new tale by the legend William F. Nolan (Logan’s Run).

scared_cat_clinging_to_treeNational Novel Writing Month? What the hell? I had a nice, simple month of work, study and testing the concepts of why the word “Catapult” begins with “Cat.” I sit back and ponder my mellow month when I hear the words, “If you write they will shut the hell up.

…what?

The Horror Society’s first ever Igor Awards are now over. A huge tip of the hat to the winner, Doug Lamoreux. The anthology should hit the shelves October 15th, 2013. Below is the cover for the “Best of the Horror Society 2013” and the Table of Contents’ authors, containing me for my short story, “The Clown.” Yeah…knowing Hollie Johani Snider‘s phobia of clowns I went ahead and wrote a clown story. Muahahahahahahaaaaaa
