Zombie Island Released Through The Society of Misfit Stories!

61tglb1sl7lReleased today is my story “Zombie Island” through The Society of Misfit Stories. This one was inspired by past vacations in Hawaii, especially my very first visit to the islands way back in 1999. That was a fun and special trip and I tried to capture that sense of newness and novelty I experienced as a first-time traveler in this story. That feeling of playing a tourist.

Bearwalker with Albert Taylor Released!

BearwalkerReleased today through The Society of Misfit Stories is my story “Bearwalker.” Happy to be part of this new series. Here’s a blurb about the story: Detective Berlin doesn’t believe in the supernatural. But when a series of unexplained, grisly murders sends shockwaves through the city of Reno, he turns to an unlikely source to help him track down the killer. Because Albert Taylor is more than the publisher of The Occult Files Magazine. He’s also one of the best monster hunters you’ll ever meet.

Check it out today!

Kristal McKerrington Reviews “The Haunted Academy”

Another review of my book,The Haunted Academy (this one’s short and sweet). I like ’em that way:) If there’s a cherry on top even better. I think this one sums it up well.

“The Haunted Academy” Published by The Horror Zine

TheHorrorZineSummer2015The new summer 2015 issue of The Horror Zine is out and includes my horror short story “The Haunted Academy” (this is a shorter, catchier alternate version of the novella by the same title that was released by Midnight Frost Books). The shorter version was written years ago, inspired by things like Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran (who was sort of the inspiration for the character of Christian). During that time I wanted a story that was tight and compact.

A few years later, I decided to expand the story into a novella, removing some of the characters (including Christian) and replacing them with new characters that I got to flesh out more, like Jan and Erica, who seemed more appealing ( though I still like Christian). So the two versions are definitely different, not just in length.

Which one do you prefer?

Thanks to editor, Jeani Rector.
