Tag Archives: 100 word stories


Welcome back, Minions.

I have some spectacular news for you! As I’d announced recently, Rotten Little Things (100 Tiny tales of terror, volume 4) was on its way.

And now it’s not.

Because it’s here!

Go forth and do that reading thing you do so well. Then leave a couple words encouraging others to do the same (assuming you enjoyed the twisty words the fell from my brain onto the pages, of course).


You guys (and gals) are the best!

At the Edge


The van came to a stop outside the crumbling building. Les peered out the window for a few minutes before he pushed the door open and stepped out.

He cracked his neck and looked around again while walking to the passenger side. Satisfied that no one was watching, he slid the side door open and scooped the unconscious girl into his arms.

With one final glance around the decrepit neighborhood, he disappeared into the sanctuary of the building. He placed the fragile child on a table in the basement and brushed the hair from her face.

“You’ll be safe here.”

New Project: Wicked Little Things

I’ve decided to put Sins of a Father on hold a bit longer in favor of a new project I’ve started working on. I don’t know when I’ll go back to Sins, but it won’t be until I’m loving the story again. Right now I’m just not feeling it so I’m not going to force myself to work on it.

The new project is a followup to 100 Tiny Tales of Terror. For the time being I’m calling it Wicked Little Things. Like its predecessor it will be packed with 100 tales of 100 words each for you reading pleasure. This time only a small handful (five at most) will have appeared on my blog at one point or another. Unlike its predecessor it will be divided into 10 sections, each containing its own variety of stories centered around a common theme, rather than 100 stories ordered randomly.

I don’t have a release date yet, but I’m thinking it’ll likely be sometime in the first quarter of 2015.

Here is a preview of the cover, which–like the title–may or may not change.


If you haven’t read 100 Tiny Tales of Terror yet, you better get moving before you have twice as much terror to keep you up at night!
