I’m alive! :)

I’m alive! Yes. I’ve managed to survive typhoon Glenda (Rammasun). Sure the entire house shook violently for hours and the city currently looks like crap, fallen trees everywhere… and there’ll be no electricity for like 1-2 more weeks but we’ll survive! We Filipinos have always been strong. Still, we need your prayers… especially the families and individuals that are greatly affected and have lost a lot. Some people lost EVERYTHING. Please pray for them.

I do have some happy news. A new horror anthology is out. NO SIGHT FOR THE SAVED— featuring the illustrations of brilliant artist Niall Parkinson and stories and poems from various writers. My 4,000-word short story “The Father” is more like a Dark Fantasy piece than a horror tale. I hope you grab a copy and enjoy it. 🙂 An illustration for each story… This book is the complete package! Kindle and print version available at Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00LRQ6VKY/ref=cm_sw_r_fa_dp_1NcXtb1W0MBY8
