Twisted Tales – Second Shots!

Back in 2010, I met Thom Erb and Dean Harrison at a horror convention. We had been chatting online before then for quite some time, throwing around story ideas, talking about life, how much fun it would be to actually get together in person, etc.

From left to right: Dean, Thom and Ty.

That’s when the magic really started. Our meeting in person eventually resulted in the release of a 3-novella collection by a now defunct publisher. The title: Twisted Tales From the Torchlight Inn. Each story contained a few common elements, most notably, a bar. The name of the establishment was of course called, The Torchlight Inn. All sorts of bad things happened in the seedy and disgusting place.

Fast forward 10 years.

We’re thrilled to announce the forthcoming Special 10 Year Anniversary Edition of Twisted Tales From the Torchlight Inn, coming in the Fall of 2021 from Journalstone.

Oh yes, it’s time to have some bloody good fun once again.

Stay tuned for more details coming later this year.

The Special 5 Year Anniversary Edition of Last Night Out is now available for purchase in Trade Paperback and eBook. This edition includes an Introduction by Gene O’Neill and Afterword by yours truly, telling the origins of the book, and how this special edition came to be.

Synopsis:

Gabe, Alan and Erin thought one last night out on the town before their junior year of college came to an end would be fitting. The three friends did the same as always – they went to a bar. Only this time they decided to try someplace new: The Torchlight Inn. They are eager to make it a night to remember.

During their time at the shabby bar they come face to face with seedy bar patrons, a biker gang and one strange-acting bartender named T-Bone. But all is well until Alan and Erin mysteriously disappear and Gabe has to try and find his friends before being forced to pay their bar tab.

Little do any of them know the secret the place holds beneath its cracked floorboards…

Where a whole new kind of terror is waiting for them.

The Killing Club — Going Out-of-Print

The Killing Club_ebook cover

The Killing Club, for whatever reason, is my most overlooked work. This 25k word novella was published exclusively in digital format in June 2013 by Crossroads Press. It will now be going Out-of-Print on Sunday, May 17th. So, you only have a few days if you would like to download this novella to your Kindle or Nook.

Synopsis:

Kristen always wanted to be part of the “in crowd.” Her social worries intensified after transferring from a small, public school to private, upscale Smithshire Academy in the middle of her high school career. She wanted so badly to be part of the social network in her new school, she didn’t think twice when one of the existing members of the popular girl’s group, The K-Club, invited her over one night for a sleepover. Where all the girls whose names started with the letter “K” are going to be. Kristen’s self-doubt allows her to be pulled into the group on one condition…

She must first go through the initiation process that the other girls have set forth before her.

What ensues is a group of popular high school girls practicing in the occult, Kristen going over to a stranger’s house to “scare” them and sacrifices to secure Kristen’s spot in high school legend.

Will all Kristen’s work be enough to appease the girls of The Killing Club and the great God of high school popularity to let her into the group?

The extent of blood that Kristen wishes to get on her hands will hold the answer.

You can still watch the original book trailer on YouTube.
