“Perfect 10” is now available in Insomnia Press, Issue 1

Awhile back, I found an open anthology looking for submissions based on Walt Whitman’s “I Sing the Body Electric.” I re-read the poem and started writing a story of obsession. It went much darker than I originally planned. Too dark, in fact, to submit to the anthology that originally inspired it.

The story is called “Perfect 10,” and it appears in Insomnia Press, Issue 1. You can view the entire issue, as well as download and print your own copy atĀ http://issuu.com/insomniapress/docs/insomniapress1#download.

Be sure to follow Insomnia PressĀ  at www.insomnia-press.com, and on Twitter @insomniapress.

They are a good bunch of guys and they do what they do out of love for the horror genre.

Thanks for reading.

Punch the Boogey Man in the Throat

Writer’s Block is a controversial subject among writers. Some see it as about as real as the monster in your closet. Others swear they have seen the beast up close and personal. I don’t believe in writer’s block as anything more than a manifestation of stress. I do believe in training to overcome stress. Read about my feelings on the subject in “Punch the Boogeyman in the Throat” at http://www.confabulatorcafe.com/2012/07/punch-boogeyman-throat/.

In other news, Insomnia Press has accepted a short story I wrote titled “Perfect 10” for use in their first issue. I’ll keep you all updated when that becomes available, but they are anticipating a late July release. Check out their website. http://www.insomnia-press.com.

Also, “Whose Woods These Are” can now be found in my pages link. It appeared last week at The Confabulator Cafe and is free to read. If you are interested in a horror story written in homage to Robert Frost’s “Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening,” it is the story for you.

As always, thank you for all of your support.
