JOLT of the WEEK! 2/28.
This week's Jolt of the Week is my short story "Pest Control."
If you are a fan of monster mash-ups then this is the story for you! Werewolves vs Ghouls!

When a ghoul starts feeding on a werewolf burial ground all hell breaks loose. Lorne, the head of his pack, cannot let this lie for if he does the consequences could be disastrous.
It's an all out war between two beasties from the stuff of legends

There is a new press in Louisiana called Outworld press and they are preparing for a 2014 Science fiction anthology. Check out their page on Facebook for information on submitting a sci-fi short story. They have already accepted two of my stories and I am so excited to be along on this wonderful journey with them.

JOLT of the WEEK! Today's jolt of the week for 2/7 is my short story "FROM BELOW." A great bargain at only 99 cents on Kindle, 1.29 everywhere else!

Something is stirring beneath the oldest cemetery in town and it isn't the corpses. When Evan stumbles upon a horrifying secret, he tries to tell his parents, his friends, even the police but no one will believe him.

The graves are hollow, something is hungry and evil itself is coming... from below.
Approximately 5,000 words.

Pick this little tale up for Kindle, Nook, Smashwords or Kobo!

Thank you!
