Benjamin Little and Bogart’s Opera (short story and opportunity)

A new order came across my phone’s notifications, excited I clicked through to the Fiverr app. Ready to kill a new victim, fictionally of course. To my surprise, the victim was going to be longtime friend (since high school), Benjamin Little. If you’re new to reading one of these short stories, here’s a quick rundown. […]

Polly Scott-Showalter and the Engineer’s Method (short story and opportunity)

That’s right. I’m back. As always the payment is $5 and the product is the same… your death. In a short story or flash fiction, of course! I’m not some kind of mild mannered person by day and serial killer by night, stalking his victims via Fiverr. No! Or am I? The next submission in […]

Jessica Wright’s Double Vision (short story and opportunity)

Jessica Wright is victim #7 in my morbid project I Will Kill You for $5. And she didn’t go down easy. I offered to write this story for her as payback for her boyfriend, Josef, recording my standup comedy gig last October. And thus began the longest, longest, longest short story I’ve ever written. Not […]

I’m feeling pretty good about my writing WRITE NOW

Ever since last Fall, I took on a couple of writing projects. The first was publishing the Josephine the Dragon stories by Taylor Christine on the blog. The second was writing the next installment in the I Will Kill You for $5 project. But, alas, it felt like I had really fallen behind on the blog and writing […]

NaNoWriMo 2015, I Will Kill You for $5 project – Volume 1

So, I decided (rather last minute as usual) to take part in this NaNoWriMo charade once more. I’ve never “won” or completed the 50k minimum, but it is a most helpful way to push yourself to prioritize a project for a month even if you don’t complete that many words. This year I’ve decided to […]

Emily Stuart and the Alpha and Omega (short story and opportunity)

Emily Stuart is victim #6. She didn’t hesitate to be put on ice when I showed her my card for the project at Stone Spiral on a Wednesday night. You can review the previous entries here. You can learn more about the gig and sign up yourself at this link. Download the Files You can […]

Damien Boath’s Festival of Horrors (short story and opportunity)

Damien Boath signed up to be laid out. He is victim #5. You can review the previous entries here. The body count is rising and there doesn’t appear to be an end in sight. Which is OK with me, I’m fine with selling out, if it means the death of a few people. You can […]

Bootsy Hambone’s Grease Monkey and Encore (short story and opportunity)

People just can’t wait to be killed, I guess. My next contestant is someone I actually know in real life. In REAL life, people! If you’re seeing this post, and aren’t sure what in the world I’m talking about, go to the first post where I explain it a bit. And check out the Fiverr […]

Shawna Bergen’s Withdrawal at Free Citizens United (short story and opportunity)

Another one bites the dust in my morbid scheme to kill people for money. Fictionally speaking, of course. I wouldn’t actually kill these people in real life for $5, that’s ridiculous. Maybe for $1,000, but not for $5. My first two contestants in the wheel of death: Kat Folland’s Early Retirement Julia Robertson’s Last Call […]
