A themed anthology for extreme horror fans.In this chilling horror collection, 29 writers and poets have come together to share tales of the grotesque, the supernatural, and more. Their words will pluck you from your comfort zone and leave you for dead, or worse. Have you ever considered where evil bides its time when it’s not outside your door? What disturbing locale could make it feel safe? We’ve all heard that home is where the heart is, but alas, that heart is sometimes racing…
We hope you live in a good neighborhood.

Toybox

Hello! 🙂 The paperback version of the Toybox is now available for preorder on the Horrified Press website. I have a story in this antho entitled “Watch Me”. 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.

The toybox awaits…

Undead Legacy

Readers of hardcore horror and zombie fiction, Undead Legacy is now Available on Amazon!!! 🙂

You stir early, removing your head from the beaten pillow. Your home is silent. The familiar, everyday noises that introduce you to the beautiful morning are absent. The dog barking, the neighbour’s irritating car alarm, the flush of the toilet – all missing. After stumbling down your hallway, stepping into your slippers and avoiding the rug that always attempts to break your neck, you open the front door, adjust your eyes, yawn and…
You scream.

The world before you is chaos, mayhem, absolute anarchy. No…it’s an apocalypse. A zombie apocalypse, where the living dead rule and humans are a tasty, but pesky afterthought. You look to your left and see a group of the undead. Your dog is massacred, mercilessly shredded between them like a sloppy, gore soaked entrée. Their eyes lock onto you. You’re dessert. You gulp, pee your pants, panic…what do you do?

From JEA Wetworks comes Undead Legacy, an anthology of undead horror. Featuring 23 stories and poems from some of the best writers in the genre today. Whatever your view on the undead – modern, old school, classic, fast, slow – there’s something for everyone in Undead Legacy. With two very special forewords from Terry M. West and Richard Laymon artwork aficionado Steve Crisp, Undead Legacy looks to cement its place in horror literature for years to come.

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
