666 (Dark Drabbles book 11) – Black Hare Press
I’m very happy to announce my inclusion in this fantastic collection of dark drabbles from Black Hare Press. I started writing short fiction once again this time last year after neglecting to do so for the best part of a decade. I’ve begun the laborious process of looking to get things published in as many places as possible, with a view to putting out a full book of short stories in the future. My piece ‘Grinning Teeth’ was kindly included in this latest publication in the Dark Drabbles series.
For those who don’t know, a drabble is a form of microfiction that is exactly 100 words long. It’s more challenging than it sounds to try and fit a whole narrative into a few sentences.
Here’s the blurb from the back of the book:
We all have a fascination for things that scare us—the thrill, the heart-stopping jump scares, the terrifying suspense. From the youngest age, we’re fascinated by the fiendish and furry, the creepiest critters, the naughty and the nasty. Horror is all around us, from the clowns who hide under our bed, to the things we might drag up from the brook at the bottom of the garden, and the zombies who crawl our streets.
As author, Megan Feehley, so beautifully says; there is beauty just before the terror…a silken breath taken before the spill of righteousness…the warmth of a licking flame preceding the scald.
So, close the drapes, check the locks, turn on all the lights and get comfortable. But don’t close your eyes…
Never close your eyes…
