October Rising

I love October. Always have. Fall is underway, and Halloween is just around the corner. And this October I have two stories coming out. The first, Babysitting for Writers, will appear in the Halloween edition of Unnerving Magazine which is now available for pre-order. 

Later in the month on October 22nd my story The Mount of Death will come out in the HWA San Diego Chapter's anthology California Screamin'. The anthology has an introduction by New York Times Best Selling author Johnathan Maberry, and stories by Kevin Wetmore, E.S. Magill, Chad Stroup, Sarah Read, Richard Goldsmith, Brian Asman, Kristina Grifant, Jean Grahm, Billy Ingreso, James Jensen, Nickolas Furr, Alexandra Neumeister, Aaron Smith and a poem by Lori R. Lopez. 

There will be a launch signing/reading/party at Mysterious Galaxy in San Diego on 10/22/17 at 2pm. I'm not scheduled to attend but I'm trying to make it.

I got a head start on Halloween this year in July as I attended Midsummer Scream, a mid-summer Halloween convention that is like Disneyland for horror fans. There has been a rise in Halloween themed conventions across the country and Mid Summer Scream is by far one of the best.

New Audio Stories on Youtube

My stories The Box Born Wraith, and Green Eyes and Chili Dogs got some new fans this past month thanks to voice talent and artist Jason Hill. Jason contacted me before Halloween last year and asked if he could use a few of my stories, including The Box Born Wraith which he heard on The Drabblecast as audition pieces for a reading job at Chilling Tales for Dark Nights. Chilling Tales is a horror-themed storytelling series and very popular Youtube Channel. Long story short, Jason has produced two of my stories so far, and one was accepted to be included in Chilling Tales' The Simply Scary Podcast.

In addition to the audio, Jason, and David Romero (Art Director at Chilling Tales) produced some original art to accompany the stories now available on Youtube.  The image above is by Romero for the story The Box Born Wraith run on The Simply Scary Podcast Season 1, Episode 16.

Both stories are available in a stand alone form on Jason Hill's Youtube channel, along with his art created for the stories.
