New Anthology: Operation Ice Bat

operation ice batEven with culinary school keeping me busy, I still manage to get a few new stories out into the world every so often.

I was messaged about being part of a benefit anthology for one of my good friends. I could have sent in a few reprints but I wanted to send in a new story, so that’s what I did… and this one is a good one. 😉

Zombie Erotica? Yes please! – “50 Shades Of Decay” Now Available

eaa9508e09df6872d93aacea6af2e0a4df42a53fFor those looking for an erotic spin on the usual zombie genre, be sure to check out the newly released anthology, “Fifty Shades Of Decay” by Angelic Knight Press.

I’m proud to say it contains my story “Dead Things Don’t Rise”.

“What’s sexy about zombies? 51 authors answered that question with wild, weird, and titillating tales. From love during the apocalypse, to love that goes beyond the grave and back again, to love that well, never dies, you’ll find these pages filled with desires demanding to be fufilled, hungers to be slaked, and lovers who won’t let a little thing like death (or undeath) come between them. Do zombies need sex as much as they need brains? What would you do to bring a lover back from the dead? What if you survived the apocalypse only to find yourself alone and sexually frustrated?

Light some candles, put on some mood music, and cozy up with 50 Shades of Decay. The zombie sexpocalypse has begun… ”

Christmassacre at The Wicked Library

Once again, I was privileged enough to be asked by Nelson Pyles for something of mine to read for his Christmas edition of The Wicked Library.

He asked me if I had a Xmas story, which I didn’t…

However, it didn’t take long for me to dig something up from the recesses of my creepy little brain.

I wrote a poem, which is something I haven’t done in a long time. It started off as a short story, but as it started to rhyme, I decided to run with it.
What I ended up with was a great little horror poem entitled, “All I Want For Xmas Is You”

Check out the podcast here.

Have a Merry Christmas!

I just posted a new novelette/novelita on both Smashwords and Amazon.
For only $0.99 you can pick up a copy of “This Only Happens In The Movies”.

SYNOPSIS: By society’s standards, Brad Kempt was a loser. Physically unattractive, emotionally stunted and the brunt of everyone’s cruel taunting, Brad ekes through life as best he can. When the beautiful and amicable Sarah moves in next door, Brad finally finds something to focus his attention on. But that sort of attention isn’t always a good thing…

While I could have sent it in for submission, I decided to pair it with my other self-published story, “She Makes Me Smile” and print up a double sided chapbook.  *(I’ll have the chapbooks shortly and they’ll be available for $5.)

Thanks a bunch to Bob Ford at Whutta Design for designing the amazing cover! (He never ceases to amaze me.)

I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I loved writing it!
