Giving from the Bottom: a short story from my forthcoming book

Posted on Mar 1, 2015 in Books, Christmas, Interviews & Guest Posts, Published Works | 1 comment

My short story, “Giving from the Bottom” (which at the time was named “Giving from the Broken-Down Bottom”), was published in Spinetingler Magazine in 2011. It is a dark drama about two cousins making a large theft at Christmas time.

This story amongst others (some dark dramas like this one and lots of horror stories) will be featured in my forthcoming book “Growing Dark” which is being published by Blue Juice Press this spring.

You can read the story for free here and get a taste of my style. You can also read my flash fiction banshee tale “Freckles“, which was just published on Halloween Forevermore.

More news on the book’s official release date coming soon.

NINE CHRISTMAS HORROR MOVIES WE’D LIKE TO SEE, Part III

Posted on Dec 23, 2012 in Christmas, Horror for the Holidays, Lists & Countdowns | 0 comments

Okay, so here’s the scoop, kids.

We had intended to do twelve horror posters and plots for this holiday season, but time really got away from us. As it turns out, Christmas is a very busy and stressful time. Who knew?

For time reasons we decided to shorten this to Nine from the original Twelve. But we went with the best ideas we had! And besides, you just know we’ll be back with more next year, given how popular these posters have been. Make sure to check out Parts I and II if you haven’t already!

TWELVE CHRISTMAS HORROR MOVIES WE’D LIKE TO SEE, Part I

Posted on Dec 12, 2012 in Christmas, Horror for the Holidays, Lists & Countdowns | 4 comments

To celebrate the twelve days of Christmas, we decided to do something unique here at Tavern of Terror, something we thought would make a great gift for all of our rad followers.

One of the reasons my wife and I decided to start doing this webpage was to have something fun to collaborate on. She’s a skilled graphic designer and artist, and I’m a writer and a horror fanatic (who built his own horror-themed bar in their house). Together, we made this webpage and we’ve been lovin’ it.

So now, combining my insane movie ideas with the wife’s graphic design skills, Tavern of Terror presents Twelve Christmas Horror Movies We’d Like To See, featuring our own poster and synopsis creations. We will be posting three movies per post over the span of four posts between now and Christmas. So keep checking in for more and have a happy horrorday!
