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.… Continue reading Benjamin Little and Bogart’s Opera (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… Continue reading Polly Scott-Showalter and the Engineer’s Method (short story and opportunity)
I told you I had a big update on Mercedes coming, and it's huge. Big. Bigger. Enormous. Gigantuous. Okay, that's enough of that. It's just some really cool news. But I'm also wrapping this big update in Cellophane, which will make sense later down the read. She has a new home. What do I mean… Continue reading Mercedes has a new home, and she’s wrapped in Cellophane

And guess what? They're all part of the same series. I made a commitment this year to… Continue reading Oh lately it’s so quiet (excerpts from upcoming novella)
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… Continue reading Jessica Wright’s Double Vision (short story and opportunity)
Several years ago, almost eight, I spent 2 days in my family's cabin on the lake writing the next, great American novel. Sounds like a horror film, right? Well, nothing scary happened, except for a lot of cabin fever. But not that kind of cabin fever. What I did do was pretty much what I… Continue reading Looking back over my book Hardboil High: Freshman
(excerpt from The Order of the Dragon) Tom Bradshaw sat at a table near the windows that looked out to the beach and Lake Huron. With the morning fog covering the lake, he couldn't see Mackinac Island.
