Beware demons. They live amongst us and within us.

Hi! The Kindle version of Demonic Possession is now available on Amazon. Various poets, writers and illustrators cover one of the most hair-raising themes ever.
My story, “The Hole in Her Soul” is featured in the anthology. This is actually one of my favorite themes. Scary stuff. 🙂
You can grab a copy at Amazon.com The Paper version will be available soon. Please don’t forget to leave a review! 🙂

Thank you Sarah Ann!

Thank you, Sarah Ann for sharing news about 100 Nightmares on your blog! 🙂

Read her post here

For those of you who are not acquainted with Sarah Ann Hall, she is a wonderful writer. She writes anything from romantic stories to dark fiction. Her works have been published in several places and like me, she enjoys participating in writing challenges. Visit her blog to read some of her flash fiction and haibun.

Sarah Ann also dabbles in several forms of art such as designing jewelry and painting. Watch out because this talented lady has a project coming up—a short story collection illustrated by artist Janice Hume.

I’m really excited about this book. If there’s one thing better than a compilation of well-written stories, it’s a compilation of well-written stories AND beautiful illustrations. 🙂

I would also like to thank everyone who re-blogged/ shared my post about the release of 100 Nightmares and also those who purchased the book. 🙂 Remember, I want need your reviews!! ❤

Dark Fairy Tales Revisited

Today (April 28th) is the release day of Dark Fairy Tales Revisited!

dark-fairy-tales-reimagined

Join a host of authors on a trip down the rabbit hole. These are fairy tales as they were meant to be read, with one eye open and through gaps in your own trembling hands, as you try desperately to convince yourself that there will be a happy ending by the bottom of the page… but there won’t be… We have classic stories reimagined, new ones that bend and twist the senses, and variations on a theme that will send you on a nightmare trip to wonderland in no time at all.

My story in this anthology is “The Fairest” by K.Z. Morano — obviously a dark re-telling of the classic, Snow White. 🙂

Grab a copy from Lulu.com or Amazon.com

Thank you.

Thank you, Adam!

Just a while ago, Adam Ickes made a blog post about the cover reveal of my upcoming book 100 Nightmares. He was actually the first person to e-mail me when I told everyone that I am running a blog blast. Thank you, Adam, I appreciate the support.

Read the post here

Adam Ickes is the author of Socks and Zombie Tree. This month, Adam released his latest book: ‘100 tiny tales of terror’. Now available on Amazon and Createspace

100-cover

100 stories.
100 words each.
Tiny snippets of terror for your consumption.
Take them in one at a time and savor the twisted flavor of death and destruction, or devour them all in one sitting–a nonstop feast of terrifying creatures and horrible happenings. The choice is yours, as will be the fear.
You may want to sleep with the light on.

I already have a copy and it’s currently on my to-read list!

Adam and I have two things in common– Friday Fictioneers and our love for the horror genre. A writer with a twisted imagination, the themes of his stories range from creepy-creatures-under-the-bed horror to stories of characters with seriously damaged psyches.

Drawing and sculpting are also among Adam’s many artistic talents.
Check out his blog at http://adamickes.wordpress.com/ where he writes fiction and hosts a writing prompt– Six on the Sixth.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR THE COVER REVEAL OF 100 NIGHTMARES

what's the tale behind this image? find out in one of my stories in 100 Nightmares

what’s the tale behind this image? find out in one of my stories in 100 Nightmares

Hi everyone! I’m releasing my very first horror story collection this April and I’m seriously psyched. It consists of 100 stories written in exactly 100 words, accompanied by a few illustrations.

I’ll be needing volunteers for the cover reveal. The book cover is finally done and it’s oh so brilliant!

If you like my writing, help me spread the word by joining my Blog Blast. It’s a self-published effort so I’m going to need all the help I can get.

Send me an email

I’ll send you the cover and a description of my book so you can post it on your blog whenever you’re free. In exchange, I’d give you my soul but you probably don’t want the filthy little thing so I’ll just feature you on my blog and thank you from the bottom of my wicked heart.

It doesn’t matter to me if you have 10,000 followers or 1,000 or 100. Or if you have a writing blog or a photography blog or a blog like mine (which is basically about anything under the sun). 🙂 Any form of help will be appreciated.

xoxo
K.Z. 🙂
