Shorts & Serials: Experimenting with a New Site

I recently joined Simily as an author. Their platform is similar to those like Wattpad or Inkitt, but with a major twist: Simily authors get paid for their work. So far, so good!

Interested? The Dispossessed, my six-part, futuristic horror tale of an unlikely request at a funeral and paranormal investigation gone badly wrong is here.

Holiday Facelift!

My award-winning novella, Dead of Winter, received a new cover design, just in time for Christmas! Okay, yes, as usual, it’s a DIY project using free stock images from places like Unsplash and Pexels, but I’m really pleased with how it turned out. What do you think? Let me know.

Also, if you’re interested in purchasing the e-book, the title link above will take you to Amazon. Had a bit of a “burp” when I uploaded the new cover and blurb on D2D this weekend, and am still trying to iron things out with them.

Here’s the new blurb. It’s not a tremendous change, but maybe more of an attention-getter than its predecessor:

Can a dead woman’s memories solve a murder?

Ten years ago, someone brutally murdered Amara’s twin sister, Nisha. No one ever found her killer. No one found any pertinent evidence at all. The loss devastated her family and drove her father to suicide.

Now, through the use of the controversial technology of memory reconsolidation, Amara hopes to unmask her sister’s killer by having Nisha’s last memories implanted in her mind. But what she doesn’t know is that Nisha’s killer, who is still at large and closer than she thinks, might be something more than human…

Something capable of manipulating time and memory…

Something with an appetite for flesh and blood!
