Friday Flashes - Hot off the presses!



Are you reading my Friday Flash Fiction on my blog? You aren't? Why not? Take a stroll or rush on over to Dirt Beneath the Shamrocks and start reading. And, after you have read, why not hop over to the Vamplit Blog and read some other fantastic tales presented to you each Friday without fail. You know you want to. 


How many times can I say a giant Woo Hoo to this news! I am so honored to be among great writers at Vamplit Publishing. Please check out each of them in the Friday Flash Fiction section, then read their other works.

  • This week's Twitter #fridayflash from Ea Irwin is my pick of the week.
  • Upon opening her e-mail, E. A. Irwin found a link to this magazine. While perusing its pages she discovered one of her stories adorning pages 66 and 67 along with a nice piece of shiny cutlery adding a bit of bling to the pages. Total shock, then a smile, "a brilliant touch" she said, "My Dearest Reginald deserved that fun."


    House of Horror joins the Magazine publishing crowd! My poem "Recompense" appears in the premier issue!


    My poem, "Incendiary" has been published at Blood Reads and released in the Spring 2011 issue available now.





    Hot Off the Presses!

    Fifteen of my poems appear in this collection!



    5 authors tormented by dark visions have penned 15 poems each to chill the spine of Poe.

    75 dark and disturbing visions for your pleasure have at last been combined into one volume.

    This collection will NOT make you feel cozy and warm.

    It will NOT make you think of love and happiness.

    No. It's designed for something much, much darker. This collection will play games with your mind and rape your soul. It will send you to the madhouse, screaming. Your warnings are for naught. Their eyes are blind, and their ears they do bleed.

    But you are not of the weak, are you?. You are strong of mind, spirit and body. You shant scream.

    Do you think you're immune? Think again.


    Available for purchase: Print Book $11.99, eBook $2.99











    Women of the Round Table centers on a group of friends who meet regularly around a kitchen table.
    Nothing is as it appears, and none of these women are ordinary. Each of these characters shares a
    common ground which gradually becomes invested with greater meaning ... bound together by
    generations of birth, death, and the miraculous ... a crystal has been handed down to a pair of sisters.

    It has power in it: each holder can make one wish.
