Submission sent to Dark Chapter Press for their upcoming antho 'Under the Knife'

Sent my story 'Family' off to Dark Chapters press today for their upcoming anthology 'Under the Knife'. I see Stuart Keane is an editor for them now. I wonder if he will end up reading my story? Fingers crossed I get in. Looking forward to reading this one either way.

Fifty Shades of Slay by Alucard Press. An anthology containing two of my stories.

Another new antho for you to pick up with two of my stories in it, The Freaks Toy and A Taste of Scotland.

I've only managed to read passed the half way point but there are some excellent stories in this book. As it says it's new names in horror so I haven't tried any of these authors yet but some of the stories have been fantastic and I'm sure you will be hearing plenty more from a few names in here.

My first story in print 'The Teacher' in Spooky Halloween Drabbles 2015

My first story in print 'The Teacher' in Spooky Halloween Drabbles 2015

I haven’t read the book yet but last years Spooky Halloween Drabble’s seems to have pretty positive reviews everywhere I looked so hopefully this one will be just as good.

About the book:

Need something to amuse you this Halloween holiday season? These drabbles will keep you entertained and amused throughout!

Werewolves, vampires, ghosts, fairies, djinns, goblins, trolls, witches, brownies, banshees are all on the prowl in these spooky drabbles.
