DIRTY NEWS & FORBIDDEN EVENTS
This is where you'll find the latest news and updates on what's happening. It may be so exciting that I end up repeating myself from the Home page here - BUT - if anything is worth saying it bears worth repeating. Wouldn't you agree? I thought so! I appreciate you meandering over to see what you might find. I mentioned latest news - but - there will also be announcements of events such as book signings, book readings, strange appearances, convention schedules and planned periods of comatose behavior.

Brace yourselves, get into position and step out into the open arms of the unknown.

Preparing to reveal to your conscious mind the horrors your subconscious mind never want you to know – about your true self – about your disease – if you but dare look…
Horror Writers Association - Horror Selfies
In 2014, the Horror Writers Association (HWA) created the Horror Selfies campaign in an effort to highlight the exceptional work, both literary and cinematic, produced by the horror genre.

JOURNALS OF HORROR: FOUND FICTION is Pleasant Storm Entertainment’s first horror anthology. My story, 'Turn Me On, Dead Man' is included in this cutting-edge anthology. The found footage subgenre is possibly the biggest in the horror film market, and havee translated that style of storytelling to the page. The stories presented here are horrific journals discovered in a variety of hidden places. The most interesting part of this anthology is the numerous places where the stories have been found: journals, diaries, legal pads, cocktail napkins, fortune cookies, instruction manuals, food ingredients, post-it notes, grocery lists, chalkboards, translation books, crossword puzzles and more. JOURNALS OF HORROR can be found anywhere! These tales are straight forward accounts, warnings or secret messages hidden in text. This collection has been compiled and edited by Terry M. West. Found footage is a genre of film making, especially horror, in which all or a substantial part of a film is presented as discovered film or video recordings, often left behind by missing or dead protagonists.
