SLEEPING WITH LOVECRAFT

As a novice to the subject of H. P. Lovecraft, about sixteen years ago I began to research and put together a picture of my state’s (Rhode Island) most haunted horror resident. Certainly his life was unique compared to most people who’ve walked this planet, and his mind was even more warped and otherworldly than even other writers. But I couldn’t have expected the very deep and personal behavioral trait that linked the two of us utterly. It explains a lot. Please read the brief and engaging blog that makes you think about “stuff,” my Labyrinth Creators Journal over at The Immortal Artist, from New Orleans, LA.

BRING ON THE PAIN

Crystal Lake Publishing, one of the world’s top independents, has a superior ongoing series of horror short stories called STILL WATER BAY. The series tells of a coastal Georgia resort town with waters that have health benefits but also hide a dark secret; a Hellmouth which allows ungodly monstrosities to seep through into our world. The town’s good guy team, known as The Guild, fight for the regular citizens and their safety from these eldritch terrors, while the avaricious Robert Jackson works only to supplicate the Demons and offer sacrifices to them at his resort, in order to maintain his financial hold on the area. Guest authors are sometime invited to pitch an idea for an episode, joining creators Joe Mynhardt and Naching T. Kassa. My idea was pitched, written and accepted!

So without further ado, read my episode entitled “The Pain Merchant,” offered free this one time only at Crystal Lake here:

EMBRACE THE DARK SIDE

Writing does have its dark side in the form of utter and hopeless rejection, faced from the moment you begin to submit your stories or query agents with your novels. I have a lot of thoughts on this state of defeat in my Halloween/ Day of the Dead Labyrinth Creators Journal over at The Immortal Artist in storm-ravaged New Orleans. Read the brief blog people look forward to more than their cornflakes.

I HATED THE ENDING

Talking about the ending of a film, book or story, we know that everyone has an opinion. Was it stupid? Was it great? Did you understand it? In my latest Labyrinth Creators Journal I continue to obsess about it in my writing, and we hear from British writing legend Ramsey Campbell. 1100 people have discovered the fun and interesting blog that makes you think.
