Getting Started

I’ve always loved horror. From movies to books and whatever I could find, I devoured it. I have also always loved writing. Believe me, I have some horrible poetry that is horror related. Something about the hounds of hell, I kid you not. Perhaps one day I can get over my embarrassment and post them here. Then again, maybe not.

I actually got started because a friend of mine that I met via Facebook has a publishing company and had a contest for a flash fiction piece. Grave Demand Publishing ended up being the motivation that gave birth to Peaceable Kingdom.  However, I got ahead of myself and published it not realizing that they would need the publishing rights so I lost out on being a part of that. However, Vincent Daemon, a great writer, read my story and liked it so that gave me hope. Since then, I’ve asked a few awesome writers to read my story but that’s going to go in another post about me pimping my stories out.

That’s it for now, although I have plenty to say and can usually never shut up, just ask my friend Melissa about how narcissistic I can be without meaning to.

By the way, I only have two short stories out there right now and yeah, that’s nothing in the grand scheme of things but I’m proud of my two stories and while life gets in the way sometimes, I promise to write more. Honestly, I have too many crazy ideas floating in my head not to spread the joy around! (that was a joke, people)

  1. Two short stories? We all start somewhere, so this is a terrific beginning. Write more.
