Greetings, Bearers!

I’m a little late for it, but Happy Halloween anyway.  A great deal of October was spent with a lot of work (including, I’m happy to say, a LOT of writing which is being prepared for being put out there soon), as well as staring in disbelief at the screen after seeing the Cubs go to the World Series for the first time in 71 years, so I didn’t get to update you guys on more things.  My bad.

But be that as it may, I’ve got some good stuff to share with you.  One of the things I like is the short fiction genre for horror, not only for literature, but also for films.  What I’d like to do is give you a few nice films available out there that I highly recommend for some good goosebumps and second looks over the shoulder before bed.  I won’t spoil the plots for you; it’s better to just jump headfirst into these movies, as it makes for a better scare 😀

“2am: The Smiling Man”

“Selfies gone wrong”

“Lights Out” (apparently this was the inspiration for the full length movie)



And, on an unrelated but important note, a bump for my poem dedicated to the Cubbies: “A Hundred Years Plus of Solitude”

Enjoy the links, and keep reading!  More will be on the way!

See you in the Vein!

Greetings, Bearers!

Finally, after years of wandering in the wilderness (read: being nitpicky about how my stories look to the point of being neurotic), I am pleased to say that Surrealities, Part I, is now available on Smashwords  for only 99 cents! 

(Pause for the audience to say “It’s about time!” 😀 )

So come on over and check out my first installment of a series of short stories that range from science fiction to outright horror.  Each part of Surrealities will have a bit of a different theme, although all of them will include something unusual and off-kilter (just like me!).  And my intention is that the next installment won’t take nearly as long for publication, so you should be seeing Part II coming out much sooner… so long as I am not abducted by aliens.  Again.

Okay, back to insanity for me.  Enjoy the stories, and let me know what you think of them!  And as always, if you like them, tell other people about them!

See you in the Vein!
