coding-coding-codingWell one more step closer to getting the Scribe Imagery site up and running.  Logo’s done, link’s up on this site and Hollie’s.  Now just to add the content and at least one of the galleries.


On a better note, Hollie’s Swansong Editing site’s done and running strong.  The only real change I still have to do is swap out the basic publicity photos for a better, flash layout.

More soon.

wicked1-88x120Wicked East Press has kindly accepted “Olden’s Wood” for publication in the forthcoming “CHAINED IN THE ATTIC” anthology.

This little story has everything – the apocalypse, killer foliage and, of course, a crazy Wiccan.

What else could is there?

. . . Salad anyone?

wicked1-88x120Okay, so we’re at the end of the first week of January and here I am actually posting something.

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.


pub_LOTLD_pressLive and Let Undead,” edited by my lovely wife, Hollie Snider, is now available for purchase at Amazon.com!

From the jacket:  The Zombie-pocolypse is real! Loved ones are returning from the grave in search of flesh and brains! Humans are running scared! Well, not so much. Here, rather than shooting them in the head, eighteen talented authors have figured out how to put the Undead to work. Zombies can now be contributing members of society once more. These stories will leave you wishing for a zombie of your own. Maybe. . . .

Okay, it’s resolution time.

1 – I will post more regularly on this site.

2 – I will get back on my writing.

3 – I will put a new website out for some writing.

4 – Writing software (just wait and see)


oncebittenneverdie-3dONCE BITTEN ~ NEVER DIE” is now available for purchase! It contains a story that’s dear to me, “Taste.”

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.


eviljestericonWell, 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?
