New Realm Publishes “Trampled Underfoot”!

New Realm Vol04 No07Got a story published in the latest issue of the fantasy magazine, New Realm, alongside some other great writers. This new piece, which was a fun one to write (as well as a fun tale, in my humble opinion), is entitled “Trampled Underfoot” and has something to do with hoofs, hoof-beats, horses, horse shoes…well, uhh, you get the picture…don’t want to reveal any spoilers!

Even if you don’t like horses I’m sure you’ll enjoy it. All I got to say is, “Whiiiiiiinny!”

I’m proud of this story. It’s a personal favorite.

Bat C on whiteIt’s time for a birthday celebration: the 6th Birthday issue of The Horror Zine has hit the streets.

It also includes my story “The Haunted Academy” (the short version, not the long one).

“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.
