A Warped 6th Grade Mind

A Warped 6th Grade Mind

From the Introduction:
 
I penned the stories contained in this mini-collection while in 6th grade during 1988-89. I’ve taken them right out of the old notebook they were in and typed them “as is” into Word. Let me repeat two words: AS IS. These haven’t been edited in any way. That would have taken away from the whole purpose of this eBook by editing or re-writing them.

So what’s the reason for this tome, you ask? Well, it’s the result of being asked the same question over and over again in multiple interviews about when I started writing, namely horror. Here you have it: in 6th grade. This is as raw as it gets – in grammar, storytelling, syntax, everything. And when I say “everything”, I mean everything! Even the cover of this eBook came from the same notebook I wrote in while in 6th grade. As you can see, I wasn’t a very good artist of any sort back then (insert wide grin here).

The other reason I put together this mini-collection is for parents. What I mean by that is; there are many parents today that might get freaked out by their children writing sick tales. I’m a prime example of what can become of those twisted teenage thoughts – a career in writing. Since that crude beginning, I’ve gone on to pen or edit over ten books.

Which AIN’T too shabby.

‘Cause everyone has to start somewhere.

This is where I did.

Hope you come along for the journey.

Liquid Courage

Liquid Courage

This one seems to be a fan favorite of mine. Originally published in Shroud Magazine #9 (2010), then reprinted in my short story collection For After Midnight (2011). T Allen Press is proud to being you “Liquid Courage” as this month’s ’12 for 12′ short story Kindle release.

Description:

“Liquid Courage” is a 7,500 word short story about a man trying to get over a bad breakup with his girlfriend. Chris is going through a lot of internal strife and is looking for a way out. He even ponders committing suicide… until his friend comes up missing. Shortly after the disappearance, Chris starts receiving notes containing clues to his friend’s whereabouts. In the end, Chris’ friend isn’t the only one who needs saving.
