Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays for all sorts of reasons---the (hopefully) cooler weather, the pumpkins, the displays in the stores---and all the classic monster movies they show on TV channels such as TCM. I grew up watching and loving the classic shows---from The Blob, to the original Night of the Living Dead, to The Day the Earth Stood Still. I was also a fan of shows like The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, Night Gallery, The Twilight Zone, etc., and still am.
It's probably no wonder that now and then all things creepy show up in my short stories. This month, I've had three Halloween stories published so far.
Over on Amazon, I have a new short story e-book published, "Best Halloween Ever, 1965". It's more of a heart-warming fiction story based on real life, a sort of coming-of-age story, set back when Halloween was a little more innocent and was all about costumes, trick-or-treating and candy!
Then, my novella, THE JOURNAL OF MINA HARKER, has been published, also as an e-book on Amazon for the Kindle. This story started out as a stage play I wrote three years ago and published as a script. It's been lengthened (to 20,000 words) and has a nice bright new cover (shiny!).

And last but not least, one of my mystery short stories recently was published in the amazing Kings River Life Magazine. The flash fiction story, "Mistaken Identity" is actually a true story. Yep, seriously. Spooky, huh? :-)
All of these e-books and stories are inexpensive (and actually, the story on the Kings River Life magazine website is FREE to read!) Why not pick one up (or all three?) for some good, spooky Halloween reading without TOO much gore.
