HorrorAddicts.net reviews The End Is All We See

HorrorAddicts.net reviews The End Is All We See https://horroraddicts.wordpress.com/2017/06/15/davids-haunted-library-the-end-is-all-we-see/

I couldn’t be more pleased with the recent review by David Watson over on HorrorAddicts.net! There is nothing better than knowing someone enjoyed reading something I wrote.

GUEST BLOG: The Gender Gap Overcorrection

I did a guest post over on Jack Wallen‘s blog for Women in Horror Month. Here’s a small preview, head on over there to read the rest.

I may only have been a writer for one and a half decades, but I’ve been a female my entire life. I’ve had that type of blatant sexism directed toward me more times than I can count, but that’s not what I’ve really come here to discuss.

Disease by M.F. Wahl is a #1 Wattpad featured horror book

It’s like a dream come true. Back in November I threw Disease up on Wattpad. I figured I had nothing to lose, but lots of readers to gain. Back then I never imagined that it would quickly become a featured novel, and that after that I’d be watching it skyrocket in the ranks. Today I’m please to announce, nay, estatic to announce, Disease is now #1 on Wattpad Featured Horror!

Check out this screenshot from my laptop. Continue reading

AVOIDING EDITORIAL SCAMS

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

 

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?
