A new short horror story is
in the COMING SOON phase now live. Here’s a short sample from Every Other Weekend.
“You said the issue was with your little boy, correct?” It was always best to get started quickly. One never knew how long it would take. Besides, sometimes the spirits hid in clever places; a spider’s web, the folds of a curtain, the square of shadow behind a hanging picture. The small talk gave her time to seek them out.
This new short weighs in at 3,000 words. It’s part of a larger collection of stories currently in progress.
Every Other Weekend goes to subscribers first, as always. These small but heartfelt bonuses are the least I can do for a group that I’m eternally thankful for.
UPDATE: As of today, the story is free for everyone. Click here to read it.

Thorns In Dark Places earned a new review:
I’m honored. RELAXED, the Amazon reviewer, is right that TIDP contains a very different kind of monster. I’ve always found the creatures who hide in broad daylight to be the most compelling. After all, they’re the ones you never see coming.
And to RELAXED, Thank You For Your Reading Time. LL

A few days ago, I committed to finding, reading (and in some case re-reading) the scariest horror novels of all time. So I was thrilled to receive the first box of horror from Amazon. It was a small box, as you can see below, but full of dark adventures.
This box contained The Ritual by Adam Nevill and Hell House by the legendary Richard Matheson. Both titles are from the first big list of scary stories. Matheson’s masterpiece I’ve read before. What horror fan hasn’t? Some books are worth a second read.
In addition, I’m pleased to add House of Echoes by Brendan Duffy, a newcomer to the horror writing genre.
Stay tuned for the updates on these scary stories and, while you’re here, hit the lovely skull on your right for even more. LL
