For those of you who are not acquainted with Sarah Ann Hall, she is a wonderful writer. She writes anything from romantic stories to dark fiction. Her works have been published in several places and like me, she enjoys participating in writing challenges. Visit her blog to read some of her flash fiction and haibun.

Sarah Ann also dabbles in several forms of art such as designing jewelry and painting. Watch out because this talented lady has a project coming up—a short story collection illustrated by artist Janice Hume.

I’m really excited about this book. If there’s one thing better than a compilation of well-written stories, it’s a compilation of well-written stories AND beautiful illustrations. 🙂

Scott Scherr is a horror author as well as a poet.
To all the zombie lovers out there, Scott has a free zombie novel on his site!

Don’t Feed The Dark is a FREE online zombie serial novel written by Scott Scherr that started on February 10th. New episodes from the novel will be posted every Monday, Wednesday and Friday until the entire novel is completed.



In the pre-dawn hours on a Saturday morning, something malevolent has awoken, striking fear and terror into unsuspecting citizens all throughout North East Ohio. Former acquaintances, neighbors, loved ones—all at random—transform into flesh-craving monsters hell bent on devouring the living. Corpses are rising from their places of unrest. Nocturnal animal-man hybrids hunt in packs. The dead are awakening from within the living…

By morning, the sun weeps over streets splattered blood-red as an unsettling silence soon follows, lulling the broken remains of society into believing the blood bath is over. Survivors gather to lick their wounds and mend their broken hearts and ravaged lives as local governments struggle to maintain law and order.

As a second wave approaches, a handful of survivors from all walks of life must put aside their differences and band together to escape the pending slaughter while storm clouds begin to gather from within their fragile community. Some who were once respectable in the eyes of society will devolve into madness while the despicable rise to the occasion in a world no longer respecting of persons.

It is their world now. The dead are hungry and do not discriminate.

If you like good fiction, go to David Stewart’s page. David’s writing is stellar! What I admire about him is that his stories are always so imaginative and he’s never afraid to experiment with new styles.

David’s short story, “Giselle” is available on Smashwords and other places. I’ve read it. I loved it. The plot was very engaging. If you’re a fan of sci-fi, time travel, sprinkled with just the right amount of romance, you’ll love it too!

Thank you, Joelle!

Thank you, Joelle Foong for volunteering to join the Blog Blast for 100 Nightmares

Joelle dedicated a lovely haiku to me and you should all check it out! 🙂

Joelle Foong likes expressing herself through photographs and haiku. Most of her haiku are inspired by nature. Like me, she likes to follow the 5-7-5 when writing. 🙂 I know that takes a lot of dedication and hard work. Seeing her blog made me miss writing for Carpe Diem daily.

She also has another blog where she posts photographs that capture the beauty of Japan and other places in Asia. I remember her posts from the weekly photo challenges.

Thank you again, Joelle. 🙂

Thank you, Helena!

A while ago, my favorite dilettante, Helena Hann-Basquiat made a blog post about the cover reveal of my upcoming book 100 Nightmares. Thank you, Helena, for volunteering to be a part of this blog blast.

Read the post here

Helena is perhaps one of the most original individuals that I’ve ever met. Like I said before, if I were to describe her writing style in one word, I’d call it BOLD. She’s fun and fearless and comes up with a lot of crazy stuff. And that’s why you need to check out FOLLOW her blog at

She’s also a very supportive friend. She even promised to bake me cookies (which will go directly into the trash because they may or may not be sprinkled with arsenic… yes, she’s unpredictable like that…) 🙂
Helena wrote a commercial for me. Read it here You’re going to love it, I swear! 🙂

Her alter ego, Jessica Bell, writes scary fiction. She mentioned in passing that she’s working on a novel. I’m sure that it’s going to be great and gothic as hell.

Meanwhile, watch out for the upcoming release of Memoirs of a Dilettante. I’ve already pre-ordered a copy!


Memoirs of a Dilettante is a collection of reminiscences, following Helena Hann-Basquiat, a self-proclaimed dilettante who will try anything just to say that she has, and her twenty-something niece, who she has dubbed the Countess Penelope of Arcadia, in their off-beat antics in such places as common as the local McDonald’s or the comic book store, to their travels to Miami for the search for the perfect Cuban sandwich. Interspersed between wacky one-off adventures, Helena tells personal, sometimes painful stories from her past in order to try and make sense of her life as it has played out, tempering everything with an indomitable sense of humour.

Cummerbund Bandersnatch, the Accidental Plagiarist, strippers, rock stars, geeks, freaks, and the Barista With No Name — these are just a few of the characters you’ll meet inside.

Discover Helena’s tales for the first time or all over again, with new notes and annotations for the culturally impaired — or for those who just need to know what the hell was going through her mind at the time!

Thank you Amy!

The lovely Amy Reese was among the first people who volunteered to join my blog blast. A few hours ago, she posted about the cover reveal of my upcoming book, “100 Nightmares”. Thank you Amy!

Read the post here

Like me, Amy participates regularly in Friday Fictioneers.
If I were to describe her writing style in one word, I’d call it Inspired.
Sometimes her words make you laugh… Sometimes they warm your heart… And sometimes they chill you to the very soul.

She also blogs about anything that strikes her as significant for the day– life’s pleasant surprises and mini mishaps.

More than that, she’s a beautiful mom who inspired and encouraged her son to write fiction. He has his own fantasy and sci-fi blog! And you can tell where his talent and love for creative writing came from. The world needs more moms like Amy.

Do visit her at and marvel at her fun, quirky and sometimes scary imaginings.
