Ready for Some Black Friday Action?

The FREE PROMO for Night Shades: A Collection of Small Terrors, Twisted Tales & Other Oddities kicks off today!

Mirth meets mayhem in this eclectic collection from the “lighter side” of the dark.

You’ll meet a woman who discovers why “finders” aren’t always “keepers,” and a disgruntled Wicca wannabe whose miscast spell produces some rather spectacular results.

You’ll also discover

  • Tips for faking your own death
  • Ghost-hunting advice, straight from the horse’s shroud
  • A comical collision between cosmic horror and modern cosmetology
  • An irreverent mashup of a familiar fairy tale

And much, much more!

No matter what floats your fiction boat, Night Shades has a flavor to fit your fancy! Grab your free copy today!

Bonus: Hear “Tokens of Sleep,” a story from this collection, on YouTube!

Are Any Vella Readers Here?

I’m doing something different with All the Colors of Death, my latest offering on the Kindle Vella platform: writing it on-the-fly instead of posting the completed work in scheduled episodes. So far, it’s working out okay…

For those not familiar with Vella, which offers serialized fiction and nonfiction, an “episode” is what they call a chapter. The first three “episodes” of any work are free (kind of like the “Look Inside” feature for ebooks). After that, you purchase tokens to unlock subsequent episodes. The number of tokens each “costs” depends on the word count, which can be anywhere from 600 to 5000. After the completed work’s been on the platform for 60 days, you then have the option to publish it, either on KDP or elsewhere. So far, only The Dispossessed has made it to ebook/paperback, but my short story collection, Nightshades, with bonus content not available on Vella, is in the works!

With that in mind, I’ve been cobbling cover designs together for Nightshades. Both incorporate photos/images from royalty-free sites. What do you think?

Oh, no! Another Book Promo?

Well, the Holidays are coming, and books make great gifts!
