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

100-nightmares-x900

Hello! 🙂 Here are the latest reviews for 100 Nightmares:

“There’s an art to writing an effective story in so few words and the author nails it… if you like good horror and well written short fiction then this needs to be in your reading list…”
THE CULT OF ME (read full review on the site)

“It’s undoubtedly ambitious stuff. Most authors fail to deliver with 10000 words, let alone 100. But Morano demonstrates early on that she is up to the task… In all, Morano delivers an eclectic range of ambitious micro-fiction, the more accomplished of which is truly impressive in what it achieves in such a small amount of words…”HORROR AFTER DARK (read full review on their site)

“Going into this book I was very skeptical. How in the world can an author make a successful story in just 100 words? Not possible! I was SO wrong! I can’t say enough about this book… it’s well written, different, scary, and very unique. You will not be disappointed!”BITTERSWEET BOOK REVIEWS (read full review on their site)

Synopsis:

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.
