Busy, busy month of Horror! And a horror contest…kind of…

Hello friends,

I hope everyone is doing well. You getting ready for the best day of the year for Horror fans? I’m doing my best. Off The Grid, my newest, is releasing on Oct 31st, 2019, on Halloween. If you want a copy sooner, come see me in Guelph on October 25th, 2019. Details can be found below.


Now, about that contest, the kind of one…

I have a Horror Shorts anthology available for free! If you download it, read it, and leave an honest review, before October 24th, 2019, you will be eligible to have your name appear in one of the short stories to be later republished.

So to recap, 1) download it for free, 2) leave a review, and 3) possibly become a character in a story. Cool?

Excellent. Here is the link:  4 Shots of Horror!

Here’s the cover:

Ancient Rome

This interesting little fact is something I read over and over in different books, fiction, and non-fiction.

Romans ate their meals lying down. I know you’ve seen in those movies set in the past where people were lounging while slaves fed them grapes around a pool filled with floating flower petals. Now that did happen, so I wouldn’t say it was historically inaccurate but I will say it wasn’t a common occurrence. The lying down part was common. Lying down on your side and eating food was how they ate back then.

I couldn’t imagine leaning on an elbow and shoveling food in my mouth. Wouldn’t your arm fall asleep? Makes my neck hurt thinking about it.

This habit was so ingrained that Cato, a senator protesting some decision or inaction in the Senate, decided that he would eat all his meals seated on a chair and at a table. That was his protest! Love this stuff.

Clap-Clap! The Conjuring…ghosts and killer moms, oh my!


How are you today? Lazy Sunday or chores Sunday? One of those adult-ing days? Laundry, housework and kids? Might as well put on some headphones and listen in to this one because this week we are discussing one helluva scary movie. That’s right. The Conjuring!

Man, what can I say about this film? Well, listen in and you’ll see. It’s free so, why not?

You may notice my blog is a little different. I added an Introduction page. I like it. My son took the photo. I added it to all my author pages. I think he did a great job.

If you read the introduction page, you’ll notice I will be posting a weekly article on a specific topic. Have a read. Let me know what you think. I’ll be posting the article every Wednesday. But enough of that. Let’s get to the good stuff:

Listen here: Movies of the Damned!!
