Wow, what a great few weeks it’s been for me. I want to thank all the readers/listeners who took the time to leave such nice comments about “Storybook Gothic,” recently featured on Season 1, Episode 9 of “Horror Hill.” 

Producer/narrator Jason did such a great job, I’m honored to be a part of the show. Clearly, the story resonated with people, which is the best feeling for any writer.

From YouTube:
“Dude, ‘Storybook Gothic’ was the best story I’ve heard in awhile! More of that please!”
“I was equally amused and disturbed by storybook gothic.”
“[Storybook Gothic] is absolutely INCREDIBLE!! So creative and fun, I’d love that to be a series.”

I even got a few emails from people who enjoyed the story:
“I have just finished listening to the Horror Hill Podcast featuring your story ‘Storybook Gothic” and WOW! I have listened to 100s of hours of horror fiction podcasts and I can easily say that this was my favorite story of all time. Original, engaging, super clever and so much fun. I really cant say enough good things about it. Please write more!” – Bruce

Thanks, Bruce. And thanks to everyone for the kind words. I’m so glad you enjoyed it.

As a matter of fact, it is the first in a planned series of stories featuring Grizz and Pixie. Check back soon for more info on where to find the latest installments (I’m finalizing the next 3-4 stories now; shout out to all my fellow procrastinators!).

In other news:


Yes! “Year’s Best Hardcore Horror Vol. 3” is out now and it is awesome! I’m so privileged to be among the contributors to this stellar story collection. Thanks to editors Randy and Cheryl for letting me chip in.

“Burnt” was actually the first short story I ever sold (first appeared in “DOA III” in May 2017) and I’m humbled by the response it has received. It’s so surreal to see my name in a TOC among so many genre icons.

If you’ve got the guts, you can get a copy in paperback or e-book right now — and I understand there’s an audiobook version on the way, too.

That’s all for now, folks. Thanks again to everybody for their encouragement and support. It really means a lot. I’ve got a few new stories on the way in a few exciting places, and I’ll be posting that info as soon as I can.

Take care!
