DISEASE COVER RELEASE!!!!

It seems I have a wealth of exciting things happening, not the least of which is the re-release of my novel DISEASE. For those of you that have been with me from the beginning of this journey, it’s seemed like a long time coming. I originally self-published back in October of 2014. Now, just over four years later (wow! has it really been that long??) I have a second edition ready to go through Stitched Smile Publications. Continue reading

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.

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.

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’ve been a horror writer for nearly fifteen years. First as part of the film industry, in a screenwriting capacity, and about four years ago transitioning to fiction. In that time I’ve made some great decisions, and some not so great decisions,(I’m not the craziest about this sentence…not smooth to read) and I’ve busted my butt to continually improve upon my craft and get where I am today.

If you told me that you didn’t want to read my work based my gender, I’d tell you to get the fuck out of town, and I would be right for saying that. 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.

AVOIDING EDITORIAL SCAMS

I wrote and published this blog post for Mash Stories.

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?
