Dreamspell Nightmares Now Available.
Dreamspell Nightmares is now available at Amazon.com. It is published by LL Dreamspell and is $4.79 on the kindle, and $16.95 for a trade paperback. It contains the first short story I ever wrote, titled Designated Driver, and another that I wrote a few months later called Picking Dewberries. It's interesting to see how much my style evolved just between those two stories.
Anyways, Designated Driver is the story of man driving on a lonely highway late at night and finds a wrecked vehicle. A short time later he picks up a strangely silent individual on the side of the road, and drives off in search of help. It isn't long before he realizes that things are not what they should be, and that his trip has just taken a sharp left turn into a very bad place.
Picking Dewberries is the tale of a little family outing as Karin Sellars and her husband and son stop on an obscure dirt road in the back country of south central Texas to pick dewberries. Pretty soon Karin realizes that her husband is missing, and there is a surprising threat from a childhood menace hanging in the trees on the roadside. Now the question is whether or not she can prevent anything else from being on the menu other than dewberries.
Picking Dewberries is also the inspiration for the novel I'm currently working on, and is the temporary prologue until I can go back in and replace it.
Anyways, that's my big announcement for today...other than that I also got into a tug of war with a raccoon over a bag of cookie cutters in my kitchen. But I'll save that for tomorrow's post.
