I really have been working….

It is not that I have not been writing lately, I just have not been working on my projects.  I have been pretty busy doing some freelance ghost writing, and it has kept me away from my main projects for a while.

I of course have the Phantasms project with Rikke, my own solo project (tentatively called Blood Lines), and the start of another project, but I also have some other ideas. I want to Narrate Rikke’s “Son of the Moon” as well as some creepy things off of Reddit.

I have been a little obsessed with Skinwalkers lately, after I discovered that the description closely fits what  a friend of mine saw and even possibly what my sister’s husband saw. Both of these happened in states far from each other and neither one knows the other, or even what a skinwalker was….

I also have started reading House of Leaves by mark Z. Danielewski. The concept alone is fascinating, but the story is really interesting. I will do a full review once I finish it, but so far I am really liking it.

I have also been watching Gravity Falls on TV. Very cute animated series with monsters and other paranormal creatures. Yes, it is for kids, no I don’t care.

When I have time I have also been listening to Welcome to Night ValeThe only way I can describe it is Tales from Lake Wobegon meets the X-files, but all Mulder’s theories are true…..

Son of the Moon. [first sample chapter]

This is a free sample chapter of our upcoming book Phantasms. Contact info and disclaimer at the end of the post. Every chapter in the book concludes it self, so this is a complete short story.

The story is about some boys who plays a prank that goes horribly wrong. (okay I was always rubbish with blurbs)

It’s written for young adults, there is nothing too graphic in it.

You can also download it as a PDF, sorry – no clue how to create a mobi file.

Attempted Murder….

I found this one floating around Tumblr, and have not been able to confirm the artist name, but I think it is Lindsey Kustusch.  I found several really great pieces by her that are truly amazing.  I think I have a new favorite artist!

Don’t forget about the February prompt!  You can write for any prompt at any time.  Just drop us a line if you want us to reblog your post! Write anything, long, short, poetry, movie script….Anything at all!

January Project

This is still a rough draft.  This is what happens when I watch The Walking Dead and try to think of a new story.

I was listening to Hozier’s To Be Alone and thought of a story about a serial killer and it was going to be awesome and dark and all that, then I turned on The Walking Dead.  This is what happened instead.  Damn zombies. I do plan to work on it more.

New Year’s Project

Azzy and I talked about doing an album project, to make sure we stayed more active over here.  I’ve let time here go to the wayside working on NANO stuff.  I have a project from November that I am excited about trying to make into something. Lord knows a NANO draft is hardly better than an outline sometimes.

For my part of hte project, I want to use Hozier’s self titled Album.  These are NOT songfics.  Just stories inspired by the songs. I owe Azzy a chapter on another project and have some work to do on the first chapter of my personal project, but then I will get stared on this one.
