Indiana Horror Review 2015 is now Available on Amazon!

51IQVKGO4oL

 

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?

Gothic Tales of Terror is now available on Amazon!

“Oh Lizzie, it’s such a pleasure to run my own home…” Charlotte Lucas, Pride and Prejudice (movie, 2005)

Ummm whatever, Charlotte Lucas… Speak for yourself…

So… How’ve you been? OMG everything’s been sooo crazy lately and by crazy I mean I’ve been so busy scrubbing floors and figuring out how to install floating shelves in my new place.

Anyway, I’m really excited to get my copy of Gothic Tales of Terror (for my new shelf) coz guess what, the book is now available on Amazon!! This is so awesome coz it features my Gothic horror story, “Hysteria”. It’s set in the Victorian era and it’s about a woman who came across an inheritance and discovered some dark and terrible family secrets. I’m very proud to have my work featured along with some really great authors.

Gothic Tales of Terror is a collection of stories and poems about love, tragedy, and the supernatural that scare without gore and envelop you in their dark, eerie mood. If you enjoy classic Victorian Gothic horror, you’ll love this collection.

Each Thirteen Press author chose a toy to write about. I just liked the theme so much that I couldn’t resist writing something for the antho! I went with the creepy Chatter Telephone.
