While the ebook is currently available for preorder, the paperback won’t be available till the release. It’s less than a month away though. I don’t know about you, but I’m patient. I can wait.


Second bit of news just as exciting as the first!

My horror alter ego wrote another short story which was accepted into…drum roll please…

Terror in the Shadows Volume 4 from Scare Street! Yes, you read that right. The same Scare Street that I’ve been fangirling over for the last 2-3 years will be publishing one of my stories. I am so freaking excited!!!

Terror in the Shadows Volume 4

Release Date: May 31, 2019

Publisher: Scare Street

Ebook: 99c ($0.99)

Paperback: $14.99 (I’m assuming. It’s not listed yet because it’s currently unavailable)

Description: A romantic getaway turns to a horrific ordeal when evil falls from the stars. A terrified young woman is stalked by a grim specter in the form of man’s best friend. A beleaguered wage slave discovers that playing with toys at work can have deadly consequences…

Scare Street’s team of horror authors brings you twelve delightedly macabre morsels of terror in this new, spine-tingling collection. Indulge yourself in a delicious feast of chilling nightmares and dark fantasies.

Each tale will leave you craving another taste of fear. But beware. You may think you have an appetite for darkness…

But the things that lurk in the shadows have an appetite for you, as well.

Featuring: Ron RipleyA. I. Nasser , Sara Clancy , David Longhorn , Sharon M. White , Julia Grace , Arwa Hezzah , Anna Sinjin

Amazing lineup! My contribution is entitled: Working Late. It’ll make you think twice about staying late at work. Your hours end at 5 pm? Go home at 5 pm. Don’t stay late.

Just don’t.

Scare Street’s release dates seem to be pretty tentative, so there is every likelihood that this book will come out sooner than expected. Keep an eye open for it. But for 99c, I don’t see why you’d bother waiting for the release. Just go and preorder it!

Poisonous Whispers (book 5 of the Haunted Village series)

Trapped between a killer and an army of the dead, Subject B must make a final stand…

Marcus Holt is a decorated combat veteran, a survivor of the brutal Vietnam War. But to the brilliant Professor Abel Worthe, Marcus is known as Subject B — a human lab rat, forced to participate in a deadly experiment. Worthe intends to see just how much fear Marcus can survive, by trapping him in a village stocked with supernatural killers.

When a new building appears in the village’s dark, snow-swept streets, Marcus and his team are haunted by the cries of panicked children. After they investigate the decaying cobbler’s shop, they are shocked to find twin boys, cowering in fear. Marcus is determined to rescue these helpless children from the danger that Worthe has unleashed. But the twins are not the only inhabitants in this house of horrors.

Marcus and the others soon find themselves stalked by the venomous spirit of a bitter old woman, whose touch brings a painful death to her victims. But as they flee this hateful ghost, they quickly realize they are surrounded by an army of restless spirits. And even Worthe cannot control this horde of deadly wraiths.

Marcus’s back is against the wall. He swore he would fight to the death to escape Worthe’s fiendish game. But against these new foes, this may be a battle he cannot win.

And now for my own stuff, which is pitifully little.

I submitted a short story to Dragon Soul Press back at the end of February, and it was accepted into their Sea of Secrets anthology! Everyone celebrate! I have the links to some of the authors, but not all yet. When this information is updated, I’ll update here as well.

My contribution to this anthology is entitled, “The Birth of the Dreamers.” No mermaids, but there is an underwater race of people. What’s the difference? you might ask. Mermaids etc are half fish. My Sea Dwellers aren’t. If you’re heavily into science (*coughmydadcough*), you may feel the urge to poke holes into my logic. Just remember, the story is on another world, and these aren’t humans. They’re merely humanoid.

We also have a Leviathan swimming around if that piques your interest. hehe

This story is intended to be a prelude to a novel I have planned for later. That’s assuming I can ever find enough time to write more than short stories. It’ll happen. It may takes years, but…eventually…

Sea of Secrets: A Dragon Soul Press Anthology

Lurking in watery depths are untold discoveries waiting to be uncovered. Where monsters as old as time enjoy their freedom and wreak havoc on the occasional trespassers.

Times are changing. The beings encroaching on their territory are more powerful and cunning as the years pass. If something isn’t done, creatures of lore will pass into history forever. But among the monsters, who will lead them to victory?

(In an aside, life has dictated that the majority of my writing be put aside. I’ll continue trying to get short stories out into anthologies, but my Fathom’s Below has been put on the back burner for the time being. It’s unfortunate but the reasons behind my change of plans are all good, so I’m attempting to go with the flow and keep a positive attitude.)
