I GUEST ON THE KNOW FEAR PODCAST

A few nights ago I was a guest on a podcast for the first time in about two years. When I originally released Disease I did a slew of them, but since then I’ve avoided guesting on one like the plague. To be perfectly honest, it’s not like anyone was beating down my door to have me on their show anyway, but I still wasn’t keen to get in the recording seat.

BOOK REVIEW: Fifty Shades Of Hell

Written by Tim Miller

Published by Tim Miller


Fifty Shades of Hell (originally Dead Girl) by Tim Miller is a self-proclaimed “extreme horror” story, and I’ll admit that I was intrigued. I’m not averse to extreme horror and had heard good things from other people about this author so I dove in, excited for a terrifying ride.

Things started out pretty rocky, with fantastically expositional writing, but I thought perhaps after the first chapter or two the story would find its legs. My mistake was assuming there was a story. Fifty Shades of Hell is more like a series of pieces depicting badly written porn and torture.

Dark Hall Press Reviews The End Is All We See

It’s always nerve wracking to send a book out for review. As a reviewer myself, I’m keenly aware of the critical eyes that search out flaws in writing like a pig sniffs truffles. This is the way it should be. My writing has already been though the sniff test on my end… but sending it out to be tested by someone another’s truffle sniffer inevitably has me biting my nails.

SHARING THE MARQUEE – Working With Author A.J. Brown

Have I ever explained, Dear Reader, why I decided to team up with A.J. Brown for our project The End Is All We See / All We See Is The End? It’s not just because he’s a great person. It’s not just because he’s supportive of other writers, and does his best to help others when he can. It’s not even because he and I hold a similar frame of mind when it comes to, I think, most things. Well… it might be a bit of all of these, but the real reason is because he’s a fantastic writer.

HandsYou’ve worked hard on your manuscript and, like a juicy red apple you’re about to leave on your favourite teacher’s desk, you want it to be polished to perfection. Now that it’s time to relinquish the fruits of your labour to a professional editor, how do you avoid getting ripped off? How do you know the editor you’re about to rely on closely is sufficiently qualified?

A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME

I wrote and published this blog post for Mash Stories. 
See the original post here.

RoseNom de plume, haigō, takhallus… Maybe you know it simply as a pen name. Call it what you will, it is a time-honoured tradition within the writing world. In fact, not only writers, but artists and even actors use pseudonyms in their craft. This is no secret. Many famous authors, from J.K. Rowling and Stephen King, to Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (“Lewis Carroll”) and even Pauline Phillips (“Abigail Van Buren” of Dear Abby), have used a pen name.
