The Link below will allow you to listen to one of my short stories that will soon appear in a new book of short stories I am releasing. Some of them like Bones have been previously released and some that are brand new. Just a small teaser.
This year has been a year of detours. Some not so good. That has left my writing on the back burner. However, things are now for the moment on a new normal road. So I have gotten back to my passion. Putting pen to paper and listening to the voices in my head. Today my new release The Mad Hatter should go live.
Behind that one I am releasing a book of short stories. Some have been previously released in other anthologies and some have been stand alones on kindle. The Question is DO YOU DARE? Do you dare read them? Do you dare take the risk of staying awake nights because you can’t sleep after reading them? Do you dare turn the page? You will not be able to answer that question until you purchase the book. Yes, it will be downloadable as well as print. It should be available in the next few weeks. So for those of you who love to delve into the unknown get ready. The unknown is coming.
Ever since I started in the business of publishing and making my dream real, I have always paid it forward. Not just in publishing but in my everyday life. The reason is simple, there have been many times that others have helped me along they way and even though I can never repay those people I can pay it forward. Yesterday I was knocked off my feet by a group of people who I am not only honored to call fellow authors I am honored to call them friends.
The back story is this – my son who has been an over the road truck driver for over twenty years has an illness that the doctors cannot diagnose. He has been out of work for over a year now and it has been a struggle for his family. His youngest son who is still a wee one has type one diabetes and is insulin dependent. My son feels so bad because he can not work and look after his family – he was raised that no matter what the father takes care of the family. That is just the way it is. However, that being said, yesterday something happened that left yours truly without words.
This circle of writers and friends along with my editor and friend Kelly J Koch with Dressing your Book http://dressingyourbook.com/ and Nicholas Grabowsky with Black Bed Sheets and GL Lentz https://www.facebook.com/gjl1976 put together an anthology of horror stories titled Blessings from the Darkness with all proceeds going to my Son Jay Thomason https://www.facebook.com/pages/A-Truck-Driver-Needs-Your-Help/1427603737463723?ref=hl and his family. In other words over 30 authors came together to put this anthology together and are no receiving any royalties at all. Unless you are an author you have no idea what a sacrifice that is for an author. To put that much work in a work and then to give away the proceeds is overwhelming. It speaks for the integrity of those involved- It is with heartfelt thanks and humbleness I give you Blessings From the Darkness.
