Review for D.O.A., an anthology of extreme horror

I recently submitted to D.O.A. 2, upcoming from Blood Bound Books.

On the BBB message boards, the editor recommends that prospective authors first read five stories from the anthology. My entry, "Artistic Subject" is one of them. Oh my!

I have revised and polished this story for inclusion in my upcoming collection, "Bedtime Stories for Carrion Beetles".

Here is a D.O.A. review that mentions my story.

The original D.O.A. is available on Amazon, B&N and many other online booksellers.

Bedtime Stories for Carrion Beetles UPDATE

I sent the PDF of Bedtime Stories for Carrion Beetles out to ten volunteer readers. Several authors in my critique group/Black Hills Writers Group offered, and several authors who are members of the Horror Writers Association were also gracious enough to peruse my first short story collection.

I hope to polish the collection (maybe add or delete a story) and have it available on Create Space and Kindle this fall. I am targeting end of September for releases in both formats.

Here is the Table of Contents:
 ("95% sure... but leaving myself the option to drop or add a story depending on reader comments)
A Good Game
You Don't Know Jack
Carrying On at the End of the World
Swollen Tick
Tomorrow's Headline
Solitary Man
Wind, Winter, Wendigo
Cold Feet
Incident on Alkali Road
The Red Patch in the Snow
The Restoration Room
A Story About Monsters
The Artist and His Subject
There's No Word For It
Bootlegs From Boston
The Biggin Hill Duel
Waiting for Inspiration

Working cover art and teasers about the stories coming soon!
Thanks for reading.

Blood Lite III: Aftertaste

The HWA is proud of our new Anthology, ‘Blood Lite III’, edited by Kevin J, Anderson and available NOW!

Sink your teeth into a smorgasbord of macabre morsels laced with horrific humor in this all-new Blood Lite collection! Whether you shriek with laughter or scream in fear . . . well, that’s simply a matter of taste.
Jim Butcher’s wizardly PI Harry Dresden pranks some high-tech monster seekers—and attempts to save a friend’s son whose life-energy is slowly being drained by an unknown adversary in “I Was a Teenage Bigfoot.” The Author from Hell has dropped dead, but a stressed-out editor is harassed by her emails from beyond the grave in Sherrilyn Kenyon’s “A Day in the Life.” The flesh is weak—and possibly even rotting—as a teenage virgin werewolf discovers on a visit to a brothel in Kelley Armstrong’s “V Plates.” Adrian Ludens helps YOU dispose of a body at your uncle's funeral in "A Misadventure to Call Your Own."
Other stories from: Joel Sutherland, Christopher Golden, E S Magill, Eric James Stone, Jeff Strand, Mark Onspaugh, Mike Baron, J G Faherty, Stephen Dorato, Jeff Ryan, Mike Reznick and Lezli Robyn, Will Ludwigsen, Daniel Pyle, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, L A Banks, John Alfred Taylor, David Sakmyster, Norman Prentiss, Don D’Ammassa, Heather Graham, Chris Abbey, D L Snell, Ken Lillie-Patz, Lisa Morton, Brad C Hodson and Lucien Soulban.
