Since my last post, a publisher nominated me for the pushcart prize, I’ve had stories published in Allas, Hemmets, My Weekly, two in The People’s Friend specials (and had another accepted) won a writing competition, and created another short story collection. Slightly Spooky Stories IV will be released on 21st October. The ebook is available to pre order now, and a paperback will follow soon.
Sometimes it feels as though I do nothing but brag when I talk about my writing here, or on social media – but then if I’m not proud of any success what would be the point in writing, editing and submitting?
And anyway, I don’t just brag – sometimes you get a sales pitch too!
Ghosts, sixth sense and things not of this world aren’t always scary, though they can be. Some help or warn, frighten or comfort those who perceive them. Others are here for their own purposes, waiting for a chance to move on. We might see, hear or feel them, perhaps they’ll only reach us through our subconscious.
Are ghosts memories and echoes of the past, contacts from another time and place, or figments of our imagination? Whether you believe in them or not, ghosts, spirits and mysterious spooking happenings all provide stories. This collection contains 24 of them.
That’s quite enough about me for now! If you’d like to try submitting stories to magazines, or entering free writing competitions yourself, then you may find my writers’ blog useful.
