New Webpage

     Finally went and did it, made a web page with Wix. This will be where I post from now on, so follow the link to see the stories!

I was a Haunted House Attraction

     The London Horror Society is a great blog with many amazing writers who read, review, and share their experiences in the realm of horror cinema and literature. I'm a writer there (I publish once a month) and decided to break away from my normal routine to share my time as a haunted house employee. It was a number of years ago, and I did it multiple years in a row. I think it's really helped me come up with some of the stranger ideas for my stories.
     Here's the article!
     Also, for your enjoyment, a monkey riding a bull!

Vampire Books for Blood

     I just signed up to change half the proceeds of Dead and Proud of It given to Red Cross as a donation for the Halloween season. This is a publicity event done by the following group:

     So if you feel like helping a worthy cause and grabbing a scary vampire novel, do it starting October 1st! Between my posts in October and my appearance at an Indie Book Conference on the 8th, I'm going to be hopping around like mad this October. Hopefully I can handle it!

Hunter's of the Dead: Witches War

     Live on Inkitt, this is a Dark Fantasy set in an alternate universe Earth where the supernatural has existed for as long as man can remember. A secretive order of warriors and mystics have banded together to help eradicate the growing darkness, and they have a new swell in the waves on the horizon.

Update: Going on Hiatus Until October 1st

     I know I was on a small break earlier, but after churning out this last novel (and two others), I'm tired. My leg is hurting more and my painkillers make my head fuzzy. But October is my main month out of the year, so I'll save up my creative juices for October to make certain we have a blast. I'm going to be in the blog hop once more, and I'll have a giveaway set up for one of my novels. I'll link any anthologies that have my work that come out, so just kick back and relax.
     See you October 1st!

Stitched Smile Publication

      A publisher putting out a brand new story of mine in an (of course!) horror-themed anthology this coming October, this group is by far the most friendly to their authors that I've ever encountered. They have a person who is dedicated to answering and helping all of their authors, single shooters and serial writers alike, with anything within her power. They have a Editor-in-Chief/President that is responsive to e-mails, and a Public Relations expert to help market your books, so long as you promise to promote them as well.
      Best of all their contracts are simple, to the point, and easy to work with. In this industry, you have some contracts that make you read them two or three times just to freaking understand who is representing whom, so a brief contract that gets to the point is a refreshing change of pace.
      I think (not certain) that I'll be in four anthologies this coming October, as one I signed at the beginning of the years has been waiting for the season of scares to release their macabre collection. Then there's this fine publisher that'll be putting out an interesting collection with a story that I can say is honestly one of my more original tales. Siren's Call Publishers has a story of mine that they still need to send me the final proof on, and Jaded Books Publishing will soon be releasing a truly terrifying collection that'll leave you wondering what the hell is wrong with the authors.
      If they're all released in October, alongside my own novel on October 8th, I'm going to be a busy freaking bee promoting everything to Hell and back. Expect my twitter presence to double, and to see facebook posts alerting you to my new appearances in paperback.
      Finally, the London Horror Society will be publishing an article about my time as a ghoul in the haunted house scene. Right now they have some great articles on The Blair Witch and a great rundown of everything to do with the [REC] franchise. They're a great group based out of the UK, and I'm proud to work with them. They're like Cracked, except their articles are all reviews or stories revolving around the horror world, in both print and film.
     This little update came because of the fact that my pets woke me up really early, and I'm just so happy to see so many projects finally taking off. When I guessed that I was a winter author, I really wasn't kidding!

Book Preview: Lust of the Damned

The first chapter of my upcoming novel, a horror erotica that I must reiterate: this one is not for children! I am not going to be friendly to any parent who sends me an e-mail saying their kid is reading smut produced by yours truly. It was an interesting challenge putting out this particular style of my genre, one that I may do again in the future. As of now, this is a story of a college girl and her adventures into the world of the living dead.
No Necrophilia or oddness like that, I promise. Part mystery, part humor, and a lot of "heated" moments for those who like them. There's even a bit of action tossed in to make the suspense be a big payoff.
Anyway, I think that's enough rambling. Enjoy the first chapter and be sure to keep an eye out for this to be released early October!

Thursday, September 1, 2016


     Sorry for the lack of updates, I've been taking it easy since my wife had the week off. To fill the gap I'll be posting something fun tomorrow, something a few of you may have forgotten about. I think it's time to pick up Ivan and the Hunt once more, maybe even add a little to Hung. I'll post Friday, Saturday, Sunday and then resume my normal schedule.
     In recent news, I'll be a featured author at the first annual Indie Authors Day on October 8th here in San Antonio from 11 AM to 12 PM at BiblioTech South 3505 Pleasanton Road (a local San Antonio Library). I'll bring a few books for people to take a peek in, some magazines I've been in and a list of works I will be in for the next few months. Here is the site for the national event if you are interested.
     My next novel is something I'll be posting up on Amazon on the 8th to celebrate the day, and it will be a tad, ahem, risque so this one will be for adults only. There will be fair warning, so please don't send me angry letters or e-mails.
     I've actually received one from some parents who found out their kids downloaded Dead and Proud of It. Didn't think I would have to explain that a story involving an insane vampire working for the undead mafia would be something your eight-year-old should avoid, but hey, this is America.

Fall Harvest, Part One

Kim was walking along the road towards the sunset, to a frat house where the party of the year was being held by the oldest son of the family, Riley Gilpine. The boy was something of an ass, but he was always able to get kegs and liquor for his parties, which made him tolerable. The fact that he was on the prowl for Kim’s older sister made her feel all the better, as the boy was far too brave for his own good.

London Horror Society Post of the Month

     I've recently (three months ago) became a member of the London Horror Society, and write a monthly piece for them. This month I highlighted three found footage films everyone should see, in honor of the new Blair Witch Project coming out in theaters.

The Trials of the Horned One, Part One

Waking up to a crack from a whip across the back isn’t any way any man should be awakened. Alas, dear friends, twas how James was awoken. Shaking his head groggily, he rubbed at his aching head and stinging back, blearily looking around to try and figure out what exactly had happened to him. Last he remembered, he was serving as a guard for a Jewish Caravan traveling through the Northern regions of West Francia towards Bretagne.

Earthen Invader Part One

The distant sounds of stone bells roused Maria from her slumber, causing her to groan as she shuffled deeper into the covers of her bed. It was a cold morning in the forest, and she didn’t want to go field-running right now. She sighed as she felt and arm lay over her frame, a supple body press up against her back.

August Issue of the Horrorzine

     The free online horror magazine, the Horrorzine, has a new issue up as of today for the month of August. It looks to be a solid issue with some quality work, so follow Mordecai the Bat, as seen below, to see the Horrorzine.

Coming Soon...

     Well, I'm slated to be published in three anthologies this Fall/Winter, which will be a treat as the cooler seasons are when the book sales really happen. I know I'll be published in an anthology by Jaded Publications in early October, as well as a Siren's Call anthology called What Dwells Beneath. Both contain stories that I've not shared with you as they're a little messed up in nature, so be sure to nab a copy when they come out. The third anthology is a little fuzzy in my mind right now, as per my meds kicking my memory around like a football. But rest assured, there will be blood!
     As for novels, I published Dead and Proud of It early. I'd planned on releasing it on my birthday on August 29th. But I'd finished it and given it a polish and said what the hell, and sent it to publication for you all to enjoy. I plan on releasing a dark fantasy novel at the beginning of October, The Hunters of the Dead: The Witches War. This will highlight the Ravens, a paramilitary group that serves as a branch of the Catholic church (at times) and hunts the Damned, demons and other otherworldly creatures, and Lost Souls, undead creatures that prowl the night. It's not your standard fantasy piece as there are no Elves or Dwarves, and all of the magic is considered dark in general, even if it heals wounds or helps people. It takes place in the Wetterstein Mountains during the early days of the Holy Roman Empire, basically an alternate universe of Earth where the supernatural is natural.
     The next novel after that will be a vampire erotica novel (I said I would try each branch of the horror world and I damn well mean it). It's done but I'm editing it as I don't like certain scenes. This one will NOT be for children, and will be advertised as such. It gives another look at vampires in my world, as the main character would be considered a Fang by sheer accident. This'll create a new branch of my world as the Dead serve her (no necrophilia or bestiality) while she solves the mystery of attackers against the undead community. I'm thinking the beginning of December or the middle of January, depending on my other publication prospects.
     Then, three months after that book comes The Father of Flesh, which is about eighty percent done. This one will define the gods of my world and invite you all into a whirlwind adventure against the servants of a dark god that has long slumbered, but might just be stirring awake.
     That should bring me to somewhere around April or May of 2017 for my novels. During the downtime, I'll be working on short stories for anthologies and more novels. This'll make certain I have work for you to read for years to come!
     Some novels that I have in the pipeline that I've been worked on a little include a zombie novel, the sequel to Ghost of O'Leary House, and a tale concerning a special spirit known the world over as he appears during Ouija board games. I also have some prompts for my next four novels after I've burned through everything mentioned. If I have them all ready sequentially I should be good throughout 2017 and maybe into 2018.
     If you want another anthology from me, such as a Grimlocke Chronicles II, then I'll need to see some more sales of the book (eBook preferably as it is more affordable). The anthology took a good chunk of my backlog and I've been stuck writing stories daily now to try and stick to the upkeep of my site. No complaints, just it's a lot of writing (I'm averaging around 6000 words a day).

A Love So Bold

A love so bold,
As to pierce the realm of life,
Is romance to make blood run cold,
Yet fill hearts with the tune of the lilting fife.

I lay resting in the soil,
Buried at the crossroads,
Despite my life of work and toil,
Left to rot in my cursed bode.

Ah, but what song is this?
Rousing me from slumber,
Forcing fingers to dig and mouth to hiss,
No longer so encumbered.

“Freedom!” I cry with jubilation,
Bony fist thrust to the sky,
As I clamber from my damnation,
Buried deep from when I died.

With naught but a burial shroud about me,
Still I feel the pull,
Of my love and her radiant beauty,
So I allow my senses to lull.

In mere hours I find myself before her manor,
Once-white sheet now in tatters,
Stained with jellied flesh and gore,

I am ready to present myself with impeccable manners.

Dead and Proud of It

     A work that has been long in the making, this is a project that's finally achieved flight. If you're interested in taking a peek, the Kindle version is up right now with the paperback to follow in a few days.
     The cover is by the same couple that do all my covers, and I really enjoy what they pulled up for me this time! If interested in the book the link is the image, but as of the day of this posting the book is only on Kindle.

Site Updates

Going to do an overhaul on the site in the next few days where I make sure related stories are linked, old links to off-site stories still work, and that the links I provide are still up and running. I'm still working on "The Father of Flesh", the first of a five-novel series, as well as "Pride", the first of a three-novel series. Taking a break from them for the rest of June to prepare July's book, "Dead and Proud of It!"

My first step into the vampire's of my imaginary world, where they are known about by the general public. There are vampires, and then there are Fangs. Vampires are the tame and docile versions, not much stronger or durable than a human. They go to blood banks and eat raw beef and pork fresh from the animal.

Keeps them tame.

But Fangs are vampires that feed on humans (or other supernatural entities), tripling their strength and speed and making them nearly bulletproof. They consume humans whole, leaving only a scant few bones, their bodies crushing the meat down and incorporating it into their own body for use. Nothing goes to waste.

This makes Fangs most unwelcome in any civilized areas, and special squads of SWAT teams are designated to taking down Fangs when one pops up on the radar.

Keep in mind this the same world as POride, the Father of Flesh, and Ivan and the Hunt. I've made this alternate universe where human history occurred with the supernatural already accounted for. I think it makes for some good reading, and I certainly enjoy writing it!

London Horror Society

     I just had the pleasure of writing a piece for the London Horror Society, entitled "Splinter: A Lesson in Originality." It's free to read so feel free to stop by the website and see what I've written, and peruse the other movie reviews to see what other members of the horror community think.

Three Little Piggies Part One

Alice screamed as the unknown assailant threw himself bodily against the front door, the hinges rattling from the great weight. Cackling from the other side, cold metal slashed against the oak door, a hollow grating noise echoing throughout the house.

Prison of the Soul Chapter Two

Scott coughed, hacking up frigid slush that was both salt water and half-digested coffee mixed with bile. Crawling on the beach, sand sticking to his soaking wet clothes, he made his way out of the tide with a woozy head and a blank mind. Looking up, he saw that the beach was dryer the further it got from the ocean, and was littered with large pieces of wood. Shivering in the cold wind and light drizzle still falling over him, Scott fought up to his feet. His arms felt like they were full of lead, numb and heavy. His legs weren’t any better, leaving him to stumble forward towards the closest bit of timber, a tree that had been knocked out and somehow ended up on the beach.

Mei and the Monastery of the Crow Chapter Three

The descent into the dungeon was slow going, as the cart had to be pushed onto an elevator, which shook unsteadily. Groaning beneath the weight of the cart, Blue-eyes walked over and stood by the crank used to lower the elevator.

Mei and the Monastery of the Crow, Chapter Two

The kitchens were warm, lit by a central fire where several large caldrons hung over the dancing flames. Madam Wu, an aging Chinese woman who’d once been a proud warrior before suffering a crippling injury to her back, tended to the caldrons with a long handled spoon. Her sun-weathered face turned to regard Mei, eyes warm as she smiled.

The Horror of Health

     Well, I'm almost thirty-one now and my doctors have been telling me to get into shape. It's a little sad how far I've gone down hill but I am taking control of my diet and beginning an exercise regimen that my leg will allow. Mainly a slow walk around the neighborhood is the goal, but since my legs nerve still feels like I'm getting electrified every few moments, I'll settle for a slow walk around my condominiums.
     As for diet, I've begun eating oatmeal in the morning with my coffee, sans sugar. I use an Agave honey substitute that acts as a sweetener and is a natural sugar, so easier on the body. No milk in the oatmeal, nor butter. I'll be adding fruit once I get some. I'll be getting low-sodium V8's and drinking one of those a day while also cooking meals primarily made of vegetables.
     The only meat I plan on using is chicken, which I'll bake before cutting up to add to the meals. I make stir fry (water, no oil) with carrots, tofu, broccoli, diced onion, and asparagus. It sounds disgusting, but it's pretty good.
      My main vice is my addiction to soda, which I'll begin weaning myself from until my birthday. As a present to myself, I'm hoping I can give them up permanently. I'm going to go back to herbal teas and coffee, with a few glasses of water a day.
     I hope to drop a significant amount of weight by my birthday. If I can do that, I'll hopefully be able to have my medication work on me in a more effective fashion.
     Now, as this is a horror site I'll leave you with a horror movie trailer chock full of suspense.

Grimlocke Chronicles

     So far this book has had great reviews and a fair number of sales, but I feel I should express the value of it some more. From a mad painter who uses human body parts as material while struggling to finish his masterpiece to ghosts playing, or hunting, children. This anthology contains thirty-six of my favorites stories I've written.

     The image is a link to Smashwords, where you can purchase the book for 2.99 for any electronic reading device! From your phone to your tablet, this will allow you to read the titillating tales within. If you want a paperback copy, you can order one off of Amazon and revel in the five-hundred-plus pages of horror.

Update with Books

     I've migrated over to Smashwords for an expanded audience and have a sale going on for Ghost of O'Leary House for the summer. My birthday is August 29th, and I plan on releasing my next book then. Until then Ghost will be on sale and the Grimlocke Chronicles will be available in all eBook formats.

Mei and the Monastery of the Crow, Chapter One

Mei smiled as she heard the gong of the Great Bell resonate throughout the monastery. The chill of winter filtered in through the stone and chilled her feet as she leapt from her bed down to the floor. Her long shirt doing little to keep cold away without the aid of her blanket, she raced to change into her furs and leathers, knowing that she’d be busy today.

Some Beach, Some Where, Part One

Brian smiled as he leaned back in his beach chair, a cold beer in his hand as he stared out at the cool blue waters of the island resort. To his left was Linda, his wife of three days. She was snoozing, a romance novel opened over her chest, one arm laying partially in the sand.

     Not able to scrounge up a store today, so I'll try and write a poem that's been lurking in the shadows of my mind. Bear with me during these strained times, as I am working hard on novels. This is a draining effort that makes coming up with new ideas very difficult. Anyway, here is a horror poem.


     As a promotion for Grimlocke Chronicles, I've made a giveaway for my first book, Ghost of O'Leary House! I have several eBook copies ready for you all to try and win. Just follow the link below and you can enter to win!

Tattoo Again!

     Working on a new set of horror stories to drip along the path for all of you right now, but I have a tattoo we can look over for fun. It is, of course, horror based.

     A strange skull with hair or flames allowing it to descend upon something, with a tinge of blue on the upper jaw. Very nice linework and shading, though I wish there was more color. I always do though.

Monday, April 25, 2016


     Alright, we have some things to go over so listen up! Just released my new anthology, Grimlocke Chronicles.
As you can see it already has one review at the time of this writing, and I'm looking for folks who want this book and will review it. So go on over and grab a kindle copy today so you can read it and see just how scary I can be! The image to the right is indeed the link to the sales site, so just click away!
     Starting Tuesday the 26th, for one week my novel, Ghost of O'Leary House, will be .99 cents in honor of my anthology being released. So you can buy it and read it from your computer, your tablet, your Kindle... whatever you choose to read it from.
     I've begun work on an interlude book for the Ghost of O'Leary House series that would be perhaps 20-30000 words long. It would detail the changes that have happened in David's life and set up the challenges he'll face in the sequel (O'Leary Bloodlines). This'll bridge the gap between both stories and create a smoother transition.
      Finally, I have a contest going on where if you enter you can win a free electronic copy of The Ghost of OI'Leary House. You can enter here!
     That is all my friends, that is all. But keep in mind I'll be working on some more novels for the summer and coming Fall. So keep an ear out!

Jack Thompson, Part One

"Hello, world!" Jack Thompson said into the camera, his words almost drowned out by the dull roar of a plane engine. "This is Jack Shit Survival, where you don't know jack-shit of how to survive in the wilderness! But that's where I come in. You see I'm a survival expert, and I'll be showing you how to survive in the wild. Try to keep up!"

Summer Scares and Ghost of O'Leary House

     Summer Scares is a thing I'll be running every month up until September where I give away ten ebooks per contest. With my new release coming out soon it should make things easier to alternate between the two. This'll help fans of horror/paranormal novels to find a new source of entertainment. I've also entered a number of events where my book will be judged, allowing me to see how certain panels of authors like my book. Seeing as the reviews all point to a 4.8 out of 5.0 that should make for a really interesting read for them, albeit a quick one.
     As for my book Ghost of O'Leary House, I have a short story in the Grimlocke Chronicles about it that answers a few questions while raising a few more. Since I've decided to do a sequel it behooves me to do these extra stories and tie-ins during anthologies so that I can give some back story. The whole experience will create a better curve of understanding assuming that readers get a copy of each one of my works.

     Ghost of O'Leary House has two things going on with it right now that'll get solved any day now. This new cover, and yes the above picture is a link to the book, conveys a more paranormal/horror vibe to the story that I really wanted people to feel. Love the artwork.
     Finally, I have the contest to win a free ebook copy of the book going on right now, so click the link and try your luck!

Amazon Giveaway of Ghost of O'Leary House

     That's right, ten electronic copies of my novel are going up as prizes in a lottery for any willing to follow the rules, which are simple enough. Following me on Amazon to be alerted when I have new work published shouldn't be a burden, so the chance of getting a free copy of my work should be worth the few moments it takes to login to your Amazon account.
     Nothing else to report will be receding into my hidey-hole soon. Not much darkness for me to hide in this time of day.
     The link to the giveaway is here!


     A short film that combines Light's Out  with a few other horror tropes. A little bit of the Grudge is present. Enjoy!

Sweet Dreams!

New Cover

     Ghost of O'Leary House is getting a new cover! I liked the calm forest theme I had, I really do, but it didn't scream horror to me. It answered my inner Buddhist nicely, but not my inner demons.
     And they need to be recognized.

     Now that is foreboding! That is the feeling I wanted to get across! I have this one artist, and man they are great. Sam person that did the work for Grimlocke Chronicles, coming out May 2nd.

The Face Swap

     A very short horror film using the "Face swap" technique that so many people have fun with, at least when making internet memes. Enjoy!

Sweet Dreams!

Update on Grimlocke Chronicles

     I have the anthology pretty much hammered out, so I'm looking for five or six test dummies to read it and provide reviews on Amazon once it comes out. I'll supply a .pdf file of the text about a week before the story is released and give you a week to read. Once it goes live a week later on May 2nd you can post your reviews and help me get the text some needed publicity. If you're interested, just drop me a line at my e-mail:
     Stories will resume on a normal basis come May 3rd once I have this work out and ready to be perused by the public. You guys can help me make it happen, so drop me a line and I'll see about getting you an advanced copy!

Guest Post on Clarissa Johal's Site


     Clarissa Johal, the author of The Island, and other great novels, had an open slot for someone to post on her blog. I inquired and was granted access to write up a post as well as post information about myself. You can check it out here! The image to my right is, of course, to her wonderful book. Seriously, two very imaginative demons terrorize this woman, it's amazing.

Grimlocke Chronicles

     The Grimlocke Chronicles is a book of short stories, thirty-eight of them to be exact. These are stories that I've written over the years and refined down to their core essence of terror, fear, and occasional chuckle-worthy stories. The book was an inspiration brought on by the numerous anthologies I've worked on in my lifetime. It's my first venture into creating a collection, one that I've already begun setting up for the second volume, should the first prove well-received.

A smidge dusty but still good!
      The totality of the piece will build upon several worlds I've created, and touch on ones I've yet to release. The final count for the anthology will be five hundred and fifty-two pages, so the average length of a horror novel. The price of $19.99 is a bargain when compared to the other anthologies out there that promise twelve or thirteen stories. Not only are mine of good quality, they have quantity to last for several days worth of reading!
     The release date is May 2nd, 2016. Be ready to nab a copy for yourself, and yes I will have  kindle versions for $2.99. I know there is a large population that enjoys reading off their tablets and computers if sales from my first book are any indicator.

Interview with Sarah England

My newest interview was with Sarah England, who has authored numerous books. Her most recent work, Father of Lies, is a wonderfully frightening piece of literature!

Light's Out (This July 22nd)

     Based off of the short video I showcased a few months ago, this trailer shows James Wan's newest project.

The Kingdoms of Albion, Chapter Two

The Warhound was a smelly pigsty of a bar, with day laborers and off-duty guardsmen drinking and gambling in smoke-filled card games. The bar itself was named after the old wolf that sat near the entryway, snoozing despite the noise. The owner of the bar, a Nortur barbarian that refused to be called anything other than Gus, said that he’d used the wolf in the war with Hadron when they’d marched upon the Norturlends, just as many within his tribe had. The Hadron had claimed his tribe, either through execution or slavery, and so Gus was left alone to fend for himself. His wayward travels through the backwater lands of Hadron eventually allowed him to come upon the United Kingdoms of New Albion. He’d moved to the village with a hefty pouch full of crowns and a war wolf at his side, and set up a bar to be built, with a brewery in the back. Gus hired the local farmer’s daughters to serve as the barmaids while he managed the bar itself.

My New Tattoo

     The Skull of Shylock, with a dagger ready to exact his pound of flesh from any foolish enough to make a bargain with the fiend.

     I should also mention this now graces my right arm! I love him already and will make sure he gets some friends when I can afford it!

Horror Tattoo

     So my wife and I have discussed how big my first tattoo should be, and with her advice, I am going in to talk to an artist to see if they can bring my vision to life. For now, you'll all just have to enjoy this tattoo!

     I like it. I think it's perfect because of the color palette used is just a variety of gray's and one vivid patch of red and black. Very nice.

Tattoo of the Day!

     Still looking for a tattoo artist and saving up for some work to be done. Really want to get something nice to compliment my wife's work. Not something that is a reflection of hers or a something referencing her, just some ink that will on my forearm similar to what she has.


     A great horror short if ever there was one, this award-winning feature has suspense and paranormal events aplenty. Do enjoy!

Sweet Dreams!

Grimlocke Chronicles Proof Copy

     Just got my proof copy of the Grimlocke Chronicles and I have to say I'm impressed. 552 pages from Title to Epilogue, I'll be combing through it looking for errors to fix. Once can never be too careful. After that I'll probably shelf the Proof copy under my edited manuscripts and just save it for a time if I ever become famous and auction it off for charity.
     The book itself has over forty stories in it so it should prove popular. Hopefully, I can have it tide people over if I release it in May until August when I release my next novel. Once I get three or four books under my belt I'll release one every four months. I'm really impressed with the cover and will be using the same artist again for my next book.


     Tattoos fascinate me. The very thought of marking yourself forever is a somewhat interesting idea, as the process is a painful procedure intent on creating plumage of a sort. That being said, I don't know what my plumage would attract, but here's something I'd consider!

     Obviously, something to work up to, and if I got it you'd be certain that it would have color in it. I like vivid blues and reds, with splashes of orange and green added in. The darker shade of the color the better.

Brain to Books Cyber Convention

Goodreads B2B Cy-Con.png

     A cyber convention where you can see lots of indie writers and authors. The banner above is not a link, but I'll mark it up the day it starts.

The Forbidden Valley Part One

Snow drifted lazily down in wayward arcs, the individual flakes twirling in the light breeze that caressed his frozen face. He hefted his bundle of trapped animals slung over his back, a mixture of foxes, wolverines and wolves. The giant man stomped through the light snow, heading for his home in the far outreaches of the Alaskan wilderness. Away from civilization, away from people…
Away from Them.

Monday, March 28, 2016


     One I've been thinking over but, you know, all that black space and no color? If you could mix in some color it would really pop, but I just see this thing fading over time until I would have to get it touched up, the luster of the crystal-void-orb-thing being the first to dull. Love the skull though, the horns on it are quite suitable for what I'm looking for.

Last Night

     A short horror film pumped out in February, this one is worthy of praise just in general. The music really sets the tone, the camera angles are all worthwhile, and the acting is superb. Enjoy!

Sweet Dreams!

The Long Knife, Part One

David wandered down the hall, running his hand upon the fading paint and the chipped railing that had always been here at the Alice Grove Apartments for as long as he could remember. The red carpet, with its twisting dark red and brown cubist design made for an interesting walk when compared to the light floral print of the wallpaper, once a brilliant white but now a faded yellow, showing the hard times the apartment had suffered.

The Spirit Board

     An all new horror video for all you fans out there, this one was crafted in 2016 earlier this month. This is a great film, so have a look! Enjoy!

Horror Zine

    That special time of month when the Horror Zine returns with new stories and content. Spend a bit of time reading through their selection and you'll be impressed.

The Horror Zine
What the hell did I name this guy? Mordecai? We'll go with thet.

Grimlocke Chronicles Update

     Well, I kinda went nuts and have over forty stories written into the anthology. Because most of my short stories fall between 1500-3000 words, it took some effort to hit 80,000 words. On the plus side, it's as big as most modern-day horror novels, meaning it's 551 pages long. On the downside, it's a fucking book. If you threw this at someone it could constitute a hate crime.
     But my fellow cadavers, fear not! It will be published early May for $19.99 or $2.99 Kindle. I could go higher on the Kindle, but for some reason, it won't let me go lower. Maybe I'm just using Amazon wrong? I'll figure it out, but $2.99 seems fair for over five hundred pages of material.
     The cover has changed slightly, but I like it. Hopefully, you will too.

     I love that freshly carved look the lettering takes, like a serial killer writes or perhaps how a werewolf would mark a tree. It was done by my artist who lives in Norway (I think) and they are very talented. I will be using them for my other books.
     After this one drops, I think I'll drop a vampire novel in August, don't know if it will be the type of gory glory like Blade or the sensual kind like some erotica writers go. Frankly, I'm up for trying both routes. I have two vampire stories are already written that are novel length and can be edited to have sexual situations in them. I would just need to be in the mood to write them...
     After August, I would have an October novel and then a December novel. And to be clear, I have all of these already written and am writing more even as we speak. The rough drafts of some of the novels I post are changed and made into new stories from the feedback I get from you guys.

Tattoo of the Day

     Most tattoos I go over are bicep or thigh tattoos, with the occasional partial sleeve. This one, however, is so clean and crisp that I had to include it. I would never get it as it doesn't have anything that represents me, but some lucky person has a real clean looking tattoo.

     The color scheme and intricate design make this tattoo really stand out. I just don't think I could subject myself to the hours of recuperation that this person would have to endure, an entire arm out of commission for a while as it heals.

Camera Never Lies

     This is a short horror shoot, no blood or gore, just suspense! Enjoy!

Werewolves of London

     A fun song many of my generation haven't heard, this one was brought to my attention by my father, a musician of forty odd years.

Have a listen...

     It's a tongue-in-cheek humor song about a disturbed werewolf rampaging across London. Pretty cool song.

Tattoo Time

     This one is of a jolly skeleton examining an eye with scrutiny, his bony digits digging into the flesh of the eyeball without popping it.

     The bowler hat and mustache make this a winner in my eyes, despite the bowtie being a little crooked. The shade work is great, as is the detail in the bones themselves.


     This is an award-winning film that brings some very real fears about a roommate to life. This is a great film due to the suspense and the acting. Enjoy!

Sweet Dreams!

Tattoo Time

     This one is an amazing piece of work that would be perfect for any Buddhist, such as me. I love the bright colors and the covering in scales and lotus flower that the Indian Buddha sits in. Just look at the detail given!

In The Shadows

     A unique monster that haunts the shadows, this short was made in 2016 and even has an alternate ending! Enjoy!

Ghost of O'Leary House Purchases

     Hopefully, those of you that like my work have already purchased a kindle or paperback copy of my debut novel, the Ghost of O'Leary House, if not that link should help you out. If you have purchased a copy and are reading it, do me a favor and leave a review for me on Amazon. That's the lifeblood of indie authors like me, as reviews let people know whether or not a book is good or not.
     Now I plan on releasing Grimlocke Chronicles early May, and Dead and Loving It in August. These two extra works, in conjunction with Ghost of O'Leary House, should help me pay some bills that are long overdue. So do what you can and support an indie author; grab a Kindle copy and read through it. If you're in the San Antonio, Texas area I'm probably going to have a signing in the coming months, so snag a paperback copy to prepare.
     And always review!
     Sweet Dreams folks, I'm retreating into a new story that needs some serious work. Thanks for hanging with me all these years, we're finally clawing up the ranks in the horror world. I hope you all remain with me all the way to the top!

Vampire Novels

     I have two vampire novels, Dead and Loving It and Love Bites. Both are set in different worlds, one where vampires are commonplace, the other where they remain secret. Now since I want to dip my toe in every type of Horror before I start pumping out novels for the genre I like, I will need to do an adult vampire novel.
     Something a tad bit more than Paranormal Romance, if you catch my drift. I've begun editing Love Bites into a more risque version of itself, which should add about 10,000 words and a lot of adult material. I'll try my hand at standard Paranormal Romance later as I have this story which lends itself well to the adult genre.
     Who knows? Maybe people will really dig my version of sexy vampires?
     Comment with another genre within Horror that I need to touch upon. I have a zombie novel, an occult novel, an old god novel, an anthology, and a ghost novel. Now I need a werewolf and... whatever else I can't think of. For visual stimulus, here is another horror tattoo!

Pretty neat right?

Another Tattoo Design

     I already have my tattoo planned out and have begun putting funds aside for it, but that doesn't mean we can't look at more beautiful pieces of Horror art!

     Old school vampire fans should enjoy this rendition of Nosferatu, I think the linework and shading are perfect. Would have looked better with color, but hey, who am I to judge?

Tuck Me In

     A one-minute classic that shows off the power of music in a suspenseful film. The movie itself is pretty simple but it's effective.

Sweet Dreams!

Grimlocke Chronicles Preview

     My second work is going to be an anthology of stories that I've been working on for the past four years. It's being reviewed right now by two people and then I'll do a final edit before I publish it. Got the cover though and I love it. Here, have a peek!

Spooky enough?
     I loved it when the artist first showed it to me, they're already working on the spine and back for me. Hopefully, I'll be able to have this out by early-to-mid May. If not then I'll just work it into June and see how that goes.

Samuel the Black Warlock Chapter Twelve

Dinner was light-hearted, with Mia laughing at every one of Samuel’s stories regarding his hunting stories. She was particularly interested in the story where he’d handled a group of zombie in South Africa, killing them before they spread their magical curse to others. It’d been one of the stories that had spread his stories as “The Black Warlock” due to the fact it was an act performed in Africa. The story hadn’t changed when people had caught sight of him and learned he was white, it’d even grown bigger when the magical world realized he was just a kid.

Tattoo I'm Going to Get

     I've decided on my left forearm, close to the elbow. Going to have a partial skeleton holding a lantern, wearing a top hat with an ace of spades stuck in the band. I'm going to have one hand bearing the lantern and another holding a shrunken head. It will have one blue eye in the right socket.
     It may seem all out of left field, but it all has meaning to me. The skeleton is to represent the horror I've selected for my life, the ace of spades represents death, which in tarot card reading means change. This is a juxtaposition with my "death" figure that is the skeleton as the top hat with the ace of spades represents changes in life. The lantern is something to guide me through the darkness until I finally reach my goals in life while the shrunken head represents my youth, the memories shriveled away to nothing but the amazing and the terrible. The eye represents my eye color when I'm "happy" or "excited" and the lone eye will show that I can either look forward or back, not both.
     The colors will be blue bones and a warm glow coming from the lantern around a shaded area of darkness. The darkness is the unknown around me, and the lantern is my guide. The blue bones represent the cold nature of the real world. The skeleton will be weathered because I want to represent the troubles I've gone through.
     Now, to find an artist that can do this without costing me an arm and a leg!

Zombie Attack

     A weird little documentary about zombies that shows an interesting social prank, this zombie "documentary" is worth a laugh.

Tattoo of the Day!

     Tattoos fascinate me. Did you know the ink under the skin stays in a semi-liquid state after being ingrained into the skin? I love that!

Book Giveaway!

     I'm going to be giving away three copies of The Ghost of O'Leary House soon. The only requirements are that you are an adult, you are a U.S. Citizen and you follow me on twitter. Once those three are fulfilled you can go to Amazon and see if you are a lucky winner! Fairly certain you have to be logged into your Amazon account as well, but the prompt didn't say anything on that. Either way, enjoy! And if you win, do me a favor and review it after reading it. Reviews are an author's lifeblood.
Just a link to the book, for now, will update when the giveaway is live.

Tattoo Image

     As many of you may have guessed, I enjoy the old time doctors who "treated" people with the plague that wore large bird masks to prevent them from smelling the foul stench of death. Well I found an interesting tattoo of one that I think would be a great bicep piece.

     A little steampunk for my tastes but sensible enough that I could have it scaled a bit for my arm if need be. Still hunting for that one tattoo that will just sing to me.

The Audition

     A vampire short film today! This one is a fairly predictable one but still worth the watch as it gives you a bit of fancy camerawork, as well as some CGI.

Sweet Dreams!
