Floppy Shoes Apocalypse — Free this weekend!! :)

Hey! 🙂 Floppy Shoes Apocalypse, with my story “They Died Laughing” is free on Amazon (this weekend only) 🙂

It’s currently sitting on the #1 spot of the free Best Sellers list in Horror Anthologies. Yay!

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00PBC9XUK

Floppy Shoes Apocalypse consists of several of the finest, most unique, and most extreme clown horror. Greasepaint and gore… sick sexual fetishes and silly shoes… crazy circus acts and a little bit of cannibalism too! Certainly not for the coulrophobic! 😉

PS It would really mean a lot to me and to my fellow authors if you could write a review for the book. Thanks! xx

Arachnophobia

Hey!! It’s been a while. So I got sick 😦 and I’m currently recuperating. Sick of eating soup coz it’s the only thing that I can swallow at the moment. ugh >< And the first thing that I intend to eat after I feel slightly better is a big fat bagel with cream cheese. I don't know why. lol 🙂 🙂 Anyway, I hope you're well! It's almost summer here in the PH and I honestly can't wait to hit the beach.

Are you afraid of spiders? Or maybe, like me, you're just fascinated with them…

There's a new antho from the talented authors of Thirteen Press: Arachnophobia, a collection of scary spider stories and more.

I have a story in this anthology entitled The Jorōgumo’s Daughter. It’s a new twist on the Japanese mythological monster. I’m proud to be sharing pages with other awesome authors such as Dona Fox, Gary Murphy, and many more. 🙂

The book is available on Lulu

Hi everyone! Omg I still have the holiday hangover. lol Honestly, I’m having a hard time going back to my old routine. 🙂 I just helped my grandma move in to a new home and I’m also helping her look after my little cousin who’s in preschool… I have a feeling that 2015 will be very, very different. After the terrible typhoons in the PH, I really hope that it turns out to be a good year.

There are bones of the dead everywhere, and they’re sharp. Under your feet as you walk across your yard, in the cement of buildings, under the foundation of your home, in the coffee you drink, in the food you eat. Science estimates 100 billion human beings have lived and died. There are bones everywhere. There are skeletons everywhere, from universities to unnamed places we really don’t want to know about. We love skeletons as we are walking skeletons. There’s an old phrase about skeletons in the closet. What if the skeleton in your closet is real? When we look at strangers, friends and family we fail to see the skull behind the face. And the eyes of skulls are dark and deep. These works of art, poetry and short stories cut deep. To the bone.
