The Experiment (revisited)

In the fall of 2011, a pretty amazing thing happened for me. I had a short story of mine published in The Derby Telegraph over in Derbyshire—you guessed it, in England. I had a short story being read by the people of Derbyshire, and in print no less. It was a fuzzy feeling of warmth. […]

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.

Not […]

The Haunting of Weasley Manor, Chapter 1

I’ve had this idea for sometime to write a series of books about a pair of sleuths, an investigative journalist and his adopted teenage daughter. The idea came about many years ago, and has gone through many iterations without much words being written. I don’t do this often with stories, I normally get an idea […]

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 […]
