Long Time No Post

What a week! I managed to knock out four stories before their deadlines, and proof another which I later decided to set aside and build into something bigger. I was just praying I worked well under pressure!

Needless to say, I've been glued to the ould inbox the last few days. And with good results! There are now two new exciting projects I'm going to be part of, so if you will permit me,  I might just ramble on a little about them.

I stepped a little outside of my comfort zone and attempted a horror parody for a Pill Hill Press anthology called 'It Was a Dark and Stormy Night'. The sole purpose of this anthology is to poke fun at all the horrible cliches and overdone plots we try to avoid at all costs. The title of my story is: 'Night of the Killer Whatchamacallit', and generally takes the living p@*£ out of the teen slasher type storyline. And who would have thought it but it was well received. And that's not even the best part; the anthology is being edited by Shane McKenzie, an up and coming writer and editor, and is also being introduced by Jeff Strand.

Secondly, I managed to impress a good friend of mine and snook in a story to the anthology she's editing called 'Sowing the Seeds of Horror', by Lorraine Horrell.

Sighs in contentment. So far so good...
