Stories in the Lonesome October

It’s spooky season again. I’ll be keeping this post brief. I’m reading and writing as always. I’ve got a few new pieces out in the world:

Let’s start with the most recent one. My Halloween story ‘Wolves at the Door’ was published by the good folks over at Dread Imaginings. I’m proud of this story. I wrote it (and two others) during my first two-week quarantine. This is the last story to see publication from that group and that makes me feel a little bit weird.

This story is an attempt to create a surreal horror piece. I was really inspired by Jeffrey Ford at the time of writing, and I think it shows.

The other story that has come out since I last posted was ‘Stories for the Coldest Nights’. This is one of the other quarantine stories. It won the Pandora Prize at Space City Underground. This is my first award for writing, and it came out in August.

Enjoy some Halloween sweets and your favorite paperback. The lonesome October will be gone before you know it.

Reaching From The Light

It’s been a bit since I’ve posted, but I figured it was time to reach out with some updates.

I had two flash fiction stories published in Mid-March. The first is entitled ‘She Watches Us Sleep’ and is published over at Timber Ghost Press’ website. They have been putting out some great stories lately, and I’m happy to join the team.

The other story is a reprint, revived after Curious Fictions went under. It’s my sci-fi horror piece ‘Manifesto: Abnormality at Z33.1’. I’m quite proud of this story. I put it out on Simily, which is an up and coming service that publishes short articles/fiction and funnels payment back to the writers.

I hope everyone is doing well. More updates soon.
