Satan’s Holiday is Getting a Companion Book (You Want to Be a Part of This)


satans holiday

That’s right you heard it here first. I am going where no one has gone before – well because that is what I do. Due to the overwhelming response yesterday to my blog about Satan’s Holiday and the controversy behind it – the opposite of what many thought would happen has happened. The response was so positive and so many people wanted to be a part of it that we decided to add a second book. That’s right I have enough short stories, poems and flash fiction coming in and people wanted to contribute that we are adding a second book. I have extended the deadline to September 20th for those who wish to contribute.

The title is still top secret- But I will say this my cover designer’s son has given me another great title. He is only 13 years old but the talent of this young man in knowing what I need is beyond belief. He gets kudos on the title pages of the books.

Now if you want to be part of this project here are the simple guidelines. And Yes, my friend Nicholas Grabowsky will be contributing his story to both books. So if you are not in the first book but in the second you will be in there with NICK! Stay tuned for the title and the cover! This is going to be so much fun!

Okay boys and girls this is for all of you who have expressed a desire to be a part of my Halloween Anthology and those of you who are still thinking about it.

I have been asked what are the guidelines. Well the guidelines are simple. I love the KISS method. All I ask is that you write from the heart. Yes, I do accept previous published work. Yes you do retain the rights to your work, you can put it anywhere else you choose, Yes, I do accept writers who have never been published. Yes we are putting poems as well as short stories in the book. The max length is 3000 words or 20 pages give or take. I am not going to beat you up if it is much less than that or a bit over. I have one story that is only 450 words. I cannot take extreme erotica for a couple of reasons, one I personally am not comfortable reading it and second remember we are reaching a very wide audience other than that reach down and write.

I will not turned down any writer who wished to contribute. The reason is simple people have been good to me over the years they have given me support and a hand up. I can not repay them I can only pay it forward. So that is what I am doing. If this jumps starts someone who has had a dream to write and didn’t know how to get started this is your chance. If you are published and want more exposure this is your chance.

The recompense is this. You each will receive two free books which comes to about $40.00 then you will have the ability to order any amount of books at any time that you want to either sell or give away at my cost. Any money that you make off those books is yours. This is always another way for you to get yourself out there.

Now to add to this my friend Nicholas Grabowsky who most of you might know about – has agreed to write a story for the book (s) (if we have enough writers we will be doing two books and his story will be in both of them)
He will be promoting the daylights out of this little jewel (s) and he will post them on his bookstore page as well as taking them to conventions and cons.

If you don’t know who this wonderful author is let me introduce you to him. He is the one who made Michael Myers famous in the Halloween movies. Yep that is the one and the same – go to his page and friend him as well as his website – he also owns his own publishing house and he has some wonderful horror authors there.

This is such an opprotunity on so many levels.
the Submission deadline is September 20 so that I can publish it before the Spooky Season (my favorite Holiday)
Don’t let it pass you by.
Oh and if you have never written horror step out of your comfort zone and try it.
