James Ward Kirk Fiction Holiday Horror Sampler

Hey everyone! JWK Fiction Holiday Horror Sampler is now available for FREE on Smashwords. You can download it in epub, mobi, and pdf formats. :) Included in this collection is my Japanese ghost story, “Yurei no Yado”.




From gothic and dark to gory and depraved, from traumatic and psychological to deeply disturbing and truly mind numbing, from weird and absurd to visceral and hard hitting. This is horror, this addresses your darkest fears, this will put you in a dark place, kick you down and abandon you.

Find within these pages works of great authors James Ward Kirk has published since 2011: William Cook, Chantal Noordeloos, William J. Fedigan, Mike Jansen, Dona Fox, Philip Harris, Murphy Edwards, Timothy Frasier, Guy Anthony De Marco, Maarten Luikhoven and K.Z.Morano.

Thinking about tying the knot? Here are a hundred reasons why you should… ;)

Veils, vows, in-laws, the whole enchilada… Is getting hitched really worth all that trouble? Isn’t it a whole lot easier to just move in with your partner and live happily ever after? So why bother with tradition?

While matrimony may not be for everyone, these 100 reasons to get married just might change your mind.

1) Perhaps one of the best reasons to get married would be to spend every waking moment of your life with the person you love. Now, if that’s not enough reason to tie the knot then I don’t know what is! <3

2) Marriage allows you to show your love to each other in such a way that nothing else can.

3) One reason to get married is because you love your girlfriend/boyfriend so much that you want him/her to become your family.

4) Sealing the deal means you’ll have someone with you for richer…

Hi everyone! Check out my family’s hotel’s blog.

The first hotel was created by my grandfather way back in the 80’s. When I was a kid, I actually lived there and had such fond memories of the place. Yeah, my childhood was pretty weird, sneaking into the kitchen for potato chips and wandering off into honeymooners’ suites. lol Anyway, do check out the blog. There’ll be more posts and pics coming your way. And hey, if you ever find yourself in Naga City… :)

“Happiness is a hotel‘s free breakfast.”

The To-si-log and the Long-si-log are classic Filipino breakfasts that always consists of three important things:

1) the main viand- Tocino (which is a Filipino ham) or Longganisa (which is a Pinoy version of the sausage)

2) Sinangag (term for rice fried in garlic)

3) and Itlog (egg). See where the dish gets its name from? ^^

Pinoys love generous servings. And despite being a night person, I have quite an appetite in the morning. :)





“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

Hey! Can I ask you for a favor? If you can, please follow our family business’s blog or like our Facebook page.



I’ve mentioned before that I’ve been pretty busy helping out with the family business. So now it’s like I’m like juggling two jobs and writing and housework.sigh :) I really hope that one of these days I’ll be able to find some time to write more stories. (Or read more books)

Not sure if I’ve mentioned this before but my family runs a chain of hotels across Camarines Sur so if you’re ever in the Philippines, specifically in Cam Sur, do pay us a visit. :)

Anyway, I hope you’ll check out the blog and the FB page. A slideshow was put up a few hours ago but I’m pretty sure we’ll be seeing more pics and posts in the future.

Thank you!

Indiana Horror Review 2015 is now Available on Amazon!



Horror from around the world is featured in the 2015 edition. New Zealand, The Netherlands, the Philippines–What is it with the Hoosier state that inspires authors from all over the world to dredge up their darkest visions to make readers tremble and shudder? Could it be the ghost towns that dot the landscape? Or do we fear the living ghosts that walk its cities, large and small, that breed and fester on dashed hope and creeping dread? Or do their dark writings mirror the thoughts we thought we had buried deep beneath layers of civility, exposing them for what they are, reflections of the darkness all around us, propagated through us and our offspring, who emulate and improve on our own wickedness?
