Carnage: After the End Volume One

I haven’t been updating this as often as I should (what else is new?) and so I thought I would take the time to help promote some of the new anthologies published by Sirens Call Publications ( First up is Carnage: After the End – Volume 1!


Carnage: After the End – Volume 1

The Apocalypse has come, leaving in its wake small pockets of survivors battling to stay alive; each carving out a new beginning for mankind.

The ten stories in Carnage: After the End – Volume 1 are the terrifyingly harsh and brutal realities those survivors must face. Each one takes us to a place where humanity’s stragglers are forced to battle with enemies outside of their control; mutant beasts, groups of depraved and desperate people, and the terrifying threat of a dwindling food supply. Their fight for survival gets even more difficult as they search among the tatters of civilization for the will to carry on.

In a world where society has collapsed and terror lurks around every corner, no one can be trusted and nothing can be taken for granted.

Hell has invaded and happy endings are a thing of the past…

Contributing Authors in Volume 1 include:

Kimberly A. Bettes, Shane Cashman, Shane R. Collins, Laura Diamond, Rodney James Galley, Michael Griffin, Russell Linton, Adam Millard, Christofer Nigro, and Julianne Snow.

Legends of Urban Horror: A Friend of a Friend Told Me

Recently I have had a short story published in the anthology Legends of Urban Horror: A Friend of a Friend Told Me, which was published by Sirens Call Publications ( I’m extremely happy with the fact that, besides having one of my stories published, the entire process from submission to editing to publication was a hugely positive experience. Everyone who I have worked with from Sirens Call Publications, whether it was the anthology editor Gloria Bobrowicz,  Nina D’Arcangela, or Kalla Monahan have been not only incredibly professional but personal as well. If anyone out there writes dark fiction I highly recommend checking out the open submissions page at Sirens Call Publications. They rock!
