FB Event March 11 at 9 p.m. Eastern / 8 p.m. Central

Hello friends! Tonight I’m going to do an author takeover on Facebook. It’s rare I do these anymore, but this is a really nice opportunity with lots of people outside of my usual community who are interested.

The point of this Facebook event is to get to know the authors, who each have a one-hour time slot. You can ask anything creativity related, and of course play fun games.

I’ll be doing two giveaways during the event: one free ebook of my latest short story, “The Subtlety of Terror”, and one audiobook of a novel from one of my favorite fantasy series ever written. The book is called Haven Divided and the series is called The Dragon’s Brood. I’ll share some fun, little-known facts about my works and me and include some games. All the good stuff!

Join me here at 9 p.m. Eastern: https://www.facebook.com/events/308299986709771/ 

See you there!

Happy Friday! Are you looking forward to the weekend? I’ve got snow coming my way, so I’m especially looking forward to it!

amongst the killing audiobook release

Today is the Facebook party for Joe Compton’s Amongst the Killing audiobook release, and there will be 15 authors doing takeovers and sharing audio and video readings of their books! I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been to an event with so many authors personally reading from their books throughout one day, particularly online.

We’ll be chatting and sharing bits of our books from noon to 9 p.m. Eastern Time, so drop by and hang out for a while. At 3:30 I’ll read a previously unshared excerpt from Anatomy of a Darkened Heart, and I’ll even post an excerpt from Locke and Keye, never before seen. My time slot is from 3:30 to 4:00, so be sure to stop by and chat.

Hope to see you there!

Horror Anthologies

  1. Portraits of Dread by Michael J. Elliottavailable on Amazon
    Portraits of Dread (72dpi 900x600)
    In this collection of twelve stories, Michael J. Elliott examines dread in all its many forms,
    In “Mother Called Today” a woman becomes increasingly fearful of her demanding mother’s incessant phone calls. She has a horrible secret about her mother, something she is too scared to share with anyone.
    In “The Little Man on Top of the Wardrobe” four-year-old James has always been very good about going to bed, but recently he’s been too scared to go to sleep. There is a little man living on top of his wardrobe and it wants his soul. Of course that’s just his overactive childhood imagination… Isn’t it?
    In “A Glutton for Punishment” we visit a future that isn’t too hard to imagine. It’s a world where the overweight are social pariahs, where the government controls their eating and shopping and failure to lose weight after three attempts results in the obese being sent to a detention camp. Lynda Whittaker has just been sent to one such camp and she’s about to learn a horrifying government secret that shows they still have one final use for the overweight.
    Portraits Of Dread contains these chillers and more.

2. A Dark Assortment by Mikey Campling – available on Amazon

Don’t be afraid. They’re just stories, aren’t they?
Sometimes that noise you can hear upstairs is just the old floorboards creaking as they settle down for the night. Sometimes.
But there’s no need to worry because, that face you saw at the window was just a reflection.
There’s no one else here. You’re alone. But that’s OK because you’re safe in your bed. And all those things you fear deep down in the dark reaches of your soul… well, they only happen in stories, don’t they?
A Dark Assortment is a collection of seventeen stories; a chocolate box of handmade treats. But beware – beneath each richly decorated shell, there’s a seed of delicious darkness.
These stories with a twist are perfect for fans of Edgar Allan Poe, and if you enjoy books like Ray Bradbury’s “Illustrated Man” and Roald Dahl’s “Skin” then we’ll get along just fine.
Oh – before I go, I’ll wish you all Sweet Dreams.
