Just a quick note for you, dear friends, that “Read the End First,” containing my story, “Stormfront,” is now available for purchase. The best part is that I get to share a Table of Contents with my wife, Hollie. Her story, “Blood and Soil,” also graces the pages. Snag it on Amazon!
Barbecues which go wrong, picnics which reveal something nasty in the woodland, weddings which are not as they seem … send me your dark tales of the bright days! “SUMMER THRILLS” is an anthology about Terrors from here and beyond invading our workplace and contains the short story, “Someone to Watch Over Me.”
Available on Amazon for $15.99
“Read the End First” contains 24 stories about the end of the world. Armageddon starting at 12:01AM with each author getting his/her very own time zone to work in.
The big surprise on this is the new cover. Absolutely love this one.
More on this little diddy as it becomes available.
I did a photoshoot with a friend, Mo. By the end of the day we were trying some dark and twisted horror concepts. One of the winners was a vampiric crack whore, complete with silver (yup, silver) snorting straw.
A couple of years later I saw Wicked East Press’ submission call for “Once Bitten” and set to work weaving a tale to reflect the fantastic job Mo did modeling.
Now c’mon y’all – vampiric crack whores – where else are you going to find that?
Ever have a day that you just don’t know how to feel about? Try this one on for size
Twisted Library Press, which holds several of my stories in various anthologies, announces that it is cancelling the majority of their forthcoming selection line. What does this mean to me? It means the stories:
- “A Murder of Crows,” part of FEAROLOGY 2
- “Olden’s Wood,” part of FEAROLOGY 3
- “Singed,” part of HELLOLOGY
- “1865,” part of SOUTH WILL RISE UNDEAD
- “Pop,” part of ZOMBIE ZAK’S HOUSE OF PAIN
have been dropped. It happens and I feel for the press. Of course I also am a bit peeved since some of these titles were held for a full year before the announcement. So I took a bit to lick my wounds.
Now for the up sides . . . .
. . . are there up sides?
Why yes, yes there are.
The first piece of news, as per the graphic seen below, is that the very same day the announcement about “THE SOUTH WILL RISE UNDEAD” was announced, Pete Giglio, Executive editor at Evil Jester Press, contacted me and snatched my 1865 story up. The catch – I have to expand it to 50,000 words or more – which isn’t a problem considering I wanted (ohhhhhh so badly) to do that in the first place. So my short story gets to be a novella/novel and doesn’t even have to be shopped around.
My second piece of good news involves the story “Pop.” You’ll notice that there’s no graphic for “ZOMBIE ZAK’S HOUSE OF PAIN“among the tombstones. That’s because every author agreed to keep their stories with Zak and Bill to let them shop the anthology around to other presses. So, it’s in a form of Limbo right now, but fingers are still crossed.
Well, boys and girls, it was bound to happen sooner or later. I started writing for publication in 2010 and the first anthology containing one of my stories just hit the shelves. By all means, take a moment, check it out, buy numerous copies (Christmas season is getting close and my story “is” about a faith healer, after all) and share them! http://www.amazon.com/HELP-WANTED-Tales-Job-Terror/dp/0615536352/ref=pd_rhf_p_t_1
Big thanks go out to Pete Giglio for taking the story and Charles Day for being crazy enough to open a publishing house that specialized in this particular brand of insanity.
Enough plugging! Anthologies out! Doin’ the happy dance!
. . . now where’s my beer?
Ever wondered how the world would end if you could decide? This anthology takes the concept of The Apocalypse a step further. 24 authors picked their own time zone to destroy. Each story is an original take on the apocalypse, seriously how fun would 24 stories about giant chinchillas eating us really be? These stories, including Henry Snider’s “Stormfront,” will make you wonder if the end comes – what happens, and will most definitely give you ideas that never occurred to you before.
. . . end of the world and I didn’t even do it with mauling maniac munchkins. Dorothy would be proud.
