Love Meets Lovecraft! My Debut Short Story Is Now Available!

The day is finally here. As you might recall, some months back I announced that my first piece of fiction had been accepted for publication--and now it's finally out there. Midnight Echo, the official publication of the Australian Horror Writers Association (AHWA), unleashed its third issue today--and my very own story, "Hell Hath No Fury", is among those you will find on the pages within.

A love story with a Lovecraftian twist, "Hell Hath No Fury" took me a good six months to complete, and I'm pretty psyched that it's now out there in the world for people to enjoy. If anyone is interested in picking up their very own copy of Midnight Echo #3 and checking out my story, the AHWA is selling digital PDF copies for a mere $3.50 American--not too shabby for a mag boasting 133 pages of content and containing 41 short stories. If you're old-school like me, print copies are also available. Nothing like holding it in your hands (and no, that is not what she said, unfortunately).

This is a day I've dreamt of since I was six years old. I'm proud of my twisted little tale, and I hope you check it out and enjoy it. Hopefully, it will be the first of many. But for right now, I have some laurel-resting and rose-smelling to do.

B-Sol: I am so proud. Many, many congratulations. I've known you for a long time, and been a reader of your content since 1988. I am glad to know you have broken through once again and made your mark. Yet another success for us Clippers and boys from Brooklyn. I am completely confident that you will have much more success in the future.

Ray, your comment just made my night. Thanks, my friend. We've come a long way from The Chronicles of 102, have we not?

Congratulations! I am a big fan of your blog- the world could use more stories with a "Lovecraftian" twist!!

Congratulations sir! Getting into print, especially a magazine is a real accomplishment.

But isn't the Lovecraftian Twist a dance?
