Horror at Hannah's

My good buddy Hannah has been spending the month of October celebrating all things horror on her blog, Musings of a Palindrome (so named because her name is a palindrome, not because she thinks she can see Russia from her house). As part of that celebration, she hosted a short story contest (less than 1,000 words) in which she asked for stories in the horror/suspense genre designed to freak her out.

And I won! Wahoo!

Go here to check out my story. I'm totally surprised, as this is probably the first horror story I've ever written (I don't read a lot of horror/suspense, and thus I get very few story ideas in that vein). I was just trying to freak Hannah out, so I'm glad I accomplished that.

And now the new Stephen King book (amongst other goodies) is winging its way to me! Thanks Hannah!

  2. Teebore! That was awesome! You deserved to win. I didn't even know SK had a new book coming out - let us know how it is when you're done!


    Oh and... DON'T HURT MY BABY!

    So! Many! Exclamations! Did you know that using excessive exclamation points in a post or email is almost solely a female trait?

    I read that in a book!

    I did not, though now that you mention it, I can see it.

    I have an aggressive hatred of exclamation points in my fiction; ask Hannah or Falen, I'm militant about using them (online, not so much).
