I'll Be Participating in the Vampire Books for Blood Drive 1-31 October 2016

From 1-31 October, Scott Burtness, author of Wisconsin Vampire, will be holding his third annual Vampire Books for Blood charity event to benefit the American Red Cross and the Canadian Blood Services. I'm honored to be part of this year's event.

For the month of October, I will donate 50% of my net royalties from every on-line sale of The Vampire Hunters, Vampyrnomicon, Dominion, and The Vampire Hunters Omnibus to The American Red Cross. This includes all sales from Amazon, CreateSpace, and Nook.

This is an incredibly worthy event and I hope all of you will participate. If you've already purchased my books, then please buy from one of the other writers involved in the event. For a list of those vampire writers who are also participating, please check here.

Apocalypse Monday

This week I've been writing a post-apocalyptic scene involving Harbin, China, and this picture reminded me of how I portrayed that city.

Incident on Ironstone Lane and Other Horror Stories Is Published

It's official. Incident on Ironstone Lane and Other Horror Stories went live. I hope you enjoy the tour of the sick and demented portions of my mind.

If you do, please leave an Amazon review. It does not have to be anything elaborate. Just rate the anthology and provide a quick one sentence comment. The more reviews I get, the more Amazon will promote Incident on Ironstone Lane. And if you do like it, please let your friends know.
Many thanks.

Incident on Ironstone Lane and Other Horror Stories To Be Released 15 August

As promised, here are the details for the upcoming anthology Incident on Ironstone Lane and Other Horror Stories.

Over the years I've published a few non-zombie-themed short stories, my favorite of which is the torture porn classic "Incident on Ironstone Lane," as well as several stories that for one reason or another were never released. All those stories will soon be together in one collection. Incident on Ironstone Lane and Other Horror Stories will be published as an e-book available only on Kindle and will be sold for $0.99. The book is scheduled for release for 15 August, but you can pre-order it here.

The stories included in this anthology are: 

"Incident on Ironstone Lane" – Tom Bowen has gone from one of the most recognized writers in horror to being a washed up loser. The only thing he cares about now is his wife, Brenda. When Tom returns home to find Brenda being raped by Wayne Hoskins, the town thug, something inside of him snaps. Tom develops a demented new interest and Wayne realizes how sick and twisted a horror writer can get.

"Denizens" – After a botched robbery attempt results in the death of the shop owner, Jack Randall and his friends try to evade the police by escaping through the sewers beneath Washington D.C. However, the justice that awaits them underground is much more horrific than anything humans could devise.

"Baby It’s Cold Outside" – Raymond Kim’s manhood has been stripped away by a shrew of a wife and a spoiled son who doesn’t respect him. Every day Raymond prays for death. When the family car goes off an isolated country road during a blizzard, leaving Raymond’s wife immobilized with a broken leg, he sees the perfect opportunity to get rid of his family with no one being the wiser.  

"The Emblem" – Reptilian-like monsters invade Pennsylvania, quickly overpowering the National Guard and establishing a beachhead. With reinforcements still days away, Iraqi war veteran Steve Preston joins a local militia to repel the invaders. During his first contact with the enemy, Preston discovers the awful truth about the alien’s intentions.

"Entertainment of the Gods" – What if man did not shape his own destiny, but was merely a plaything of the Gods?

“Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” – When the Queen realizes that her vengeful stepdaughter Snow White wants to remove her and take over the kingdom, she has Karl the huntsman take Snow White into the forest to place her under a sleeping spell. The Queen’s attempts at keeping peace in the realm unravel when Snow White is befriended by seven unwanted misfits who come to her defense.
