A Bit About Damascus Mincemeyer

😉
1. Tell me about you. Age (if you don’t mind answering), married, kids, do you have another job etc… ​Well, I’m Damascus. Nice to meet everyone. I came from a tough town near St. Louis, Missouri that wasn’t the most auspicious place for a brainy kid with an interest in the weird and obscure to thrive. I was a loner and an oddball (still am), and didn’t have many friends when I was younger, which is how I managed to hone my writing and drawing skills–through lots of enforced alone time during middle and high school. Home was a refuge, though, where I could dream and just be a kid, which was all I could ask for. ​I realized not too long ago that my fascination with horror stories stems from th...

A BIT ABOUT SK BERIT


1. How old were you when you first wrote your first story? I still have it. Third grade, I believe it was. 2. How many books have you written? One so far. The Little Book of Big Roolz, which came out in November. 3. Anything you won’t write about? Rape is right out. Nope, not going to write about that shit. Let somebody else cover it. 4. Tell me about you. Age (if you don’t mind answering), married, kids, do you have another job etc… I identify as chronologically 60 but my emotional age is fluid. I can be dead serious with one breath and make double entendres with the next. Maybe ‘dynamic’ is a better term. I wouldn’t say ‘volatile’ fits. Nope. Not in the least. I am divorced, lo these past ...

Chris Miller reviews NOTCHES by M. Ennenbach


Once in a great while, we stumble across a work of literature that transcends not only our expectations but genre and definability itself. NOTCHES by M. Ennenbach is one of those works, and it cannot be stressed enough that reading this collection will not only entertain you, but it will awe you as well. The collection starts off with a story of subtle horror with BLUE. It’s a quiet piece, and while it’s short and fast-paced, it also manages to work as a slow burn, and by the end, we are not quite sure what has befallen our protagonist entirely, but we feel his pain and loss as we read his words to his sweet love some distant place away. With NOISES we are treated to a masterful and beautifu...

CHRIS MILLER’S FIRST NEWSLETTER !


March 2019 Newsletter!The main storyYou lucky folks are privy to my inaugural OFFICIAL (because that makes it sound even cooler) Newsletter! All four of you should feel exceedingly special. I’ve never done one of these before, so bear with me while I figure all of this out.   So, first of all, here’s what’s going on:   My second novel, THE HARD GOODBYE, was released about a month and a half ago. It’s picking up some great reviews so far, hopefully we’ll get some more coming pretty soon. This novel is a special little gem to me. There are lots of reasons why this one holds such a special place in my heart, but among them are two that really stand out. First, RAY GARTON, the author who penned ...

Getting Personal with Mike Ennenbach


1. How old were you when you first wrote your first story? Twenty or so. It was horrific. So bad. It was mostly just an exercise when I look back at it. I put my friends in the most ridiculous situations. I knew it was bad, but it felt so good to create. 2. How many books have you written?  As of right now, the collection and one novel. Add in the thousand and some odd poems, a novella and the two books in progress and we can round it to three. 3. Anything you won’t write about? Not really. Sometimes there is a clear path from beginning to end. But I have found once the words start to flow they can ceer sharply away. So while I may not want to write about something, I may find myself in the ...

400 Days Of Oppression by Wrath James White


December 5th, 2018 12:03am 400 Days Of Oppression by: Wrath James White I read a lot. I love to read. I have favorite books. This book is an end all book. I just now finished reading it and I’m not sure how I will pick up the next one and start reading. I started this book last night after doing the pod cast that I co-host with Jesse Dedman. It was midnight and I figured I would read just a hour or two at the most. By 3am I was only 20% in the book and had already been mad as hell, cried like a fool and didn’t know if it would be possible to read more. I couldn’t put it down. It had me in its grips and it wasn’t going to let go. Truth be told, I didn’t want it to let go. I was totally amazed...

****Gripping and totally Enthralling****

⭐
Excerpt:  The bus driver started laughing – a high-pitched cackle that pierced my ears – just as laughter burst through my phone. I looked toward the driver, he was leaning over, twisting back to face me, his mouth stretched open to a wide smile. His laughter grew louder for a second or two and then stopped. “Where are you going Mike?” He said, his voice coming from the phone as well. I dropped it. He stood up, his limbs stretching and growing, popping and cracking. His head crunched against the roof as the tips of his fingers brushed the floor. I slid out of my seat, took a step back. “Tiana, get up!” She looked up at me, blinked, then noticed the driver, a gasp catching in her throat. The ...

Getting personal with Stanley Wiater


    One of my most interesting interviews to date has to be Stanley Wiater. This man has interviewed everyone I have always wanted to meet and then some. He got to sit in the same room with them and pick their brains. I can’t even imagine. I would faint. I met him on a pod cast where I did book reviews and I can say that he is the most down to earth and kindest person I have had the pleasure to meet. He is smart and funny and gives great advice. I learned a lot by talking to him and how to do better interviews. Normally I send the questions to the author and they fill them out and send them back to me. However I had the honor of a phone call for this one. It was an honor and pleasure to be a...

Getting personal with Kenneth W. Cain

▪
Kenneth W. Cain first got the itch for storytelling during his formative years in the suburbs of Chicago, where he got to listen to his grandfather spin tales by the glow of a barrel fire. But it was a reading of Baba Yaga that grew his desire for dark fiction. Shows like The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, and One Step Beyond furthered that sense of wonder for the unknown, and he’s been writing ever since. Cain is the author of The Saga of I trilogy, United States of the Dead, the short story collections These Old Tales and Fresh Cut Tales, and his latest Embers: A Collection of Dark Fiction. Writing, reading, fine art, graphic design, and Cardinals baseball are ...
