Insomniac Nightmares – Available Now!

My first published work in several years has hit the charts and is available now! Fifteen short horror stories, including the never-before-seen “Little Miss No Name” in a tidy little collection. If that’s something you’re into, you can either click on the awesome image below, or follow the link right here. I’m obligated to state that said link goes to Amazon, that I am not an Amazon employee, and I receive compensation if you opt to buy the book. Which all seems like fairly obvious stuff, but legalese be legalese, you know.

So give it a whirl; the first chunk is even viewable on the site, if you want to take a look inside before you pick it up. Uncertain on timeframe for an e-book version (formatting is a pain and I kind of expended what budget I had on editing, formatting for paperback, and cover art), but if that’s something you’d prefer, please let me know so I can gauge interest and keep up if and when it happens.

Stay safe, and don’t let the bedbugs bite. Maybe invest in a nightlight… if you want to keep the nightmares away.

    Congratulations on your new release! 😀

        Do you plan to release an ebook?

      • July 11, 2020 at 9:41 PM

        Eventually. At the moment I can’t really afford to; spent too much on the cover art, can’t yet afford to do the reformat for Kindle.

        Is it the cover you need to spend money on? Formatting is free… You can do it from the Word file.

        Nah; the cover art included a Kindle-compatible version. Problem is that every time I’ve tried to format something myself, it ends up borked. Random page numbers and spacing, paragraphs all over the place, etc. Even when I try to generate a PDF from the final version it does it, and I am not smart enough to know why. 🤷🏻‍♂️

        I’m in the middle of an editing project for a client at the moment, but I should have a couple of free days next week if you’d like me to have a look at it for you. If I’m able to get it working, I’ll give you detailed instructions on what I did. I don’t offer it as part of my editing service, but I’ve formatted a couple of my own books recently, so it’s fresh in my mind. You can send the file to me at penlightediting@gmail.com. If you’d like. 🙂

        I appreciate the offer… just wish I’d noticed the comment sooner. Paid the original formatter a couple extra bucks, they converted it for me. But thank you.
        Didn’t know you offered editing services, though (I am known for being blind, so, that’s probably it) but I’ll have to keep that in mind for when/if Vampire 2.0 or Chrysanthemum Graves are “done.” (because we all know they’re never really done, right?)

        Haha! No, our own work is never ever “done.”
