There's pretty much no healthcare joke I can make that won't anger somebody right now...

There’s no time for a second opinion! We must order now!

My life has been a whirlwind of work, work and more work. The job has been hard but rewarding, and the writing has been tough.

But there have been some developments for on the writing. I wrote a few good tales and am working on another two. I’d like to finish the month with three flash pieces. I foresee a writing break for half the month of June.

But there’s one really important tidbit. At long last, it’s finally out. Under the Knife from Cruentus Libri Press is finally out. Click on the picture to order!

Babies require a lot of care. Diapers, food, love, it’s quite a bit. But sometimes, you get a special child. Sometimes, you’ll need holy water, fire, sunlight, garlic, silver bullets and girded loins. Cruentus Libri Press is firmly aware of the difficulties such children can be, and thus have concocted an anthology of cautionary tales to prepare the lucky parents of monster babies.

But wait! There’s more! As if horror tales involving pint sized sociopaths weren’t enough, we can even bring in the family doctor! Also including a story by yours truly!

There's pretty much no healthcare joke I can make that won't anger somebody right now...

On the bright side, your HMOs got this.

Look for both these new anthologies this month! … please. Also coming soon: The Black Wind’s Whispers by the Bolthole. And by soon, I mean someday.

100 Horrors on Sale Now!

This is what will happen to you if you don't buy it.

This is what will happen to you if you don't buy the book.

Here at He2etic’s Hysterical Horoscope, I am hard at work setting up a cult of He2esy. And like all cults, we are fated to either drink arsenic-laced Kool-Aid or sell out with dues and merchandising.

Sometimes, even both.

But good news, my cultist children! I have opted for the former of the aforementioned options (for now). I will not, however, ask for your car, house and first-born just yet. No, instead I offer you the honor of buying my new e-book, 100 Horrors: Tales of Horror in the Blink of an Eye, edited by Kevin G. Bufton.

Okay, maybe it’s not quite just my book. I mean, I am splitting the credit with the editor. And the cover artist. And like, ninety-nine other authors… who are probably better writers than me.

But still! Now is your chance to own a piece of authentic He2esy. So act now, and years later you could look back and say, “Hey, I know that guy! I read his blog and book!”

With a tone of both remorse and disgust.

Buy 100 Horrors: Tales of Horror in the Blink of an Eye today! Only $2.99.

100 Horrors

Ahhh, reminds me of watching Nickelodeon as a kid...

Jumping on the same wagon as Raziel4707 and Tyrant have before me, I too am being published. My flash fiction will appear alongside theirs in 100 Horrors, edited by Kevin G. Bufton. The release date is set for February 20th of this year.

Bufton has been a joy to work with. He has kept us writers up to date about every change or piece of news that comes through, as tedious as it might be to coordinate between 100 individual authors and one terrific cover artist. What started as an e-book became more when he told us our work would be in print as well. That was welcomed news to me, as I’ve always wanted to see my name in print before all fiction is moved onto Kindles, Nooks and e-readers.

But for me personally and for the writers at the Bolthole, it’s red letter day. 5% of the stories being published are from Bolthole writers, the other two being Lord Lucan and Mister Ed. Both of whom I will be bugging to write blog posts about this event.

Now, although I’ve been notified that I’m being published for a few months now, I’ve only decided to mention it openly now. Why? Because I’m mentally prepared for bad news at all times. Maybe the anthology doesn’t get published. Maybe things didn’t work out, or a crucial contract didn’t get signed in time. Promising ventures can and do fall apart easily.

Since writers get rejected all the time, the last thing I wanted to do was discuss the bitter taste of false hope. So close and yet so far. But I believe we’re passed that fear now. No, now we have something else to fear. Not just a fear, but terror. 100 terrors of 100 words by 100 authors.

Look for 100 Horrors on February 20th, folks. And take it easy, as one’s heart can only take so much.
