Southern Fried Autopsies: An Anthology

Southern Fried…
Not necessarily an odd term if you live in the south or have visited the southern states of the US. In the south, we have monster trucks, lots of fishing, hunting, beaches, humidity, peaches, and a whole slew of stories that happened during the time of Northern Aggression. But what was Southern Fried? What does that really mean? It was once referred to as something, typically some kind of dead animal, that was battered, crispy, deep-fried in oil, and while tasted incredible, was artery clogging and blood pressure rising food. Not anymore.

Now Southern Fried has been attached to a set of autopsies and those files were placed in this incredible collection.
Short stories that will test your knowledge of the southern way of thinking, the southern charm, the hospitality, and the tales all by authors that have ties to the area, or still live here. Southern Fried Autopsies is sure to raise your levels to unsafe highs as you dive right in with both feet to the deep end.

Y’all come right on over, ya hear?

With contributions, stories, and poetry from P Mattern, Mark Slade, Kerry Alan Denney, DS Roland, P. Mattern, Rollin Jewett, L Bachman, SL Kerns, Edd Sowder, Patricia Stover, TJ Weeks, Thomas Vaughn, Cindy Johnson, DC Phillips, Kris Weeks, Olin Wish, John L Davis IV, Donna Owens, Veronica Smith, Mirren Hogan, David Johnson, and James Master.

SYNOPSIS
You attend a funeral of a friend, one who decided that living was no longer an option. That night, you feel a slight tickle on the back of your neck. Shrugging it off as an overactive imagination, you try to ignore it, yet it persists. You turn to look for the menacing thing bothering you, and nothing is there. Not even a shadow. In the far reaches of your sight, you start to make out a familiar figure ascending from the darkest corner of your room. You reach for the lamp beside you, but hit it, knocking it to the floor. Your fear begins to rise, as do the hair on your neck. A familiar voice pleads with you… “Why didn’t you hear me…?

Welcome back to the Crossroads.

Crossroads in the Dark IV: GHOSTS is a collection of short stories developed in hopes of bringing awareness to suicide prevention around the world. While the stories do not tell of suicide, they do speak of GHOSTS. Who are the ghosts that haunt us daily? What are the remains of an otherwise perfect life ended far too soon? Which are the people who we find hardest to move forward from when we lose them? The easy answer is, the ones we failed to save.

Doubled Newsletter Released !

I didn’t have much to talk about in February to do a newsletter. The big news was in the previous month, January, with the re-release of Maxwell Demon and The Blasphemer Series as it was taken up by Burning Willow Press, LLC. News of it being signed has been blogged and shared across the social media-verse.

I decided because Febuarary was relatively quiet to combined what little went on in the March newsletter making it a two-month newsletter. In the one that released earlier today was information about the website that has had a makeover, some exclusives, and a more private blog post. One of the exclusives being a freebie copy of The Painting of Martel restricted to just the newsletter subscribers.

I had mentioned long ago that time to time I’d release short stories as newsletter download subscribe bonus. I did that this time. I hope in the future that more stick around to gain access to all that my newsletter has to offer. I am working on more things to reward my supporters.

Award-winners Announced

Yesterday, Saturday, it was announced the winners of the Author’s Excellence Awards. This is something I had to submit a story to and I choice Human Ouija as this is one of my works I’m most proud of. Months went by from my submission until yesterday. I had even forgotten they were going to announce the winners until someone mentioned it randomly.

callmeawardwinning

I went over to check and saw posts where those that had submitted or were curious were asking about the posting, when it would be up, or even who were winners. I then saw it!

I want to congrats the other winners, of course. This is an honor. Thank you also to those that have shown their support and that have congratulated me. I was contacted and congratulated privately. I was also asked for my address because I’ll be receiving a trophy. I got excited knowing I’d be getting a trophy. As a child, I won things for poetry, but my parents were unable to afford the trips or trophies. So this trophy will be my first physical totem of my accomplishments of this kind.

When I get it I’ll take pictures to show as well. The one attached to this post was taken by one of the organizers to show the winners what they will be getting and not one I personally took.

Darkness Dwells Podcast

Last night, I had the pleasure of getting to sit down with Jason White of Darkness Dwells Podcast and talk about many things. We talked The Blasphemer Series, my upcoming release of the short Human Ouija, the indie business’ professionalism, and much more. I have to say Mr. White was very professional and this is the type of podcast level of professionalism that anyone would desire and because of this I decided to talk about the podcast, what it’s about, and help those out there in the horror genre that’s may have been looking for a place to promote. It’s important as indies that we help eachother and ya’ll know I’m all about helping my fellow indies out.

Darkness Dwells is a blog and weekly podcast hosted by horror authors Jason White and Michael Schutz-Ryan. They have a wide variety of topics they cover within the world of horror, from authors to covering horor genre movies, this is definately a one-stop-horror-shop type of podcasts giving its listeners more than enough entertainment to sink their fangs into. I’m going to definitely start tuning in, I am a huge fan of podcasts.

You can find them around the web on the usual social media hot spots, Twitter, Facebook, and of course they even have a website that contains more information about them.
