Last year, I revisited all my published titles and edited them. . . It took several months but was worth doing, and I enjoyed reconnecting with my characters. Continue reading Update #2 – Rebecca Bryn
How well do you know the work of Edgar Allen Poe? Now recognised as one of the greatest short story writers of all time, he did not enjoy massive success at first. Here are some examples of how he crafted great opening lines. Source: A Halloween visit with Mr. Poe Continue reading A Halloween visit with Mr. Poe
Two writers who also happen to be friends discuss the writing process. This is quite long and is followed with a long excerpt from the current Work In Progress of one of them. However, I think it is well worth the effort. Source: Splattering Richard over my Laptop Continue reading Splattering Richard over my Laptop
Rebecca Bryn writes excellent historical fiction. Like me she also has opinions which she doesn’t mind sharing. Unlike me she has a natural wit that shines through her writing even when it is opinionated. And, surely, few would disagree with the views she is expressing here.

I have no idea what a ‘gif’ is, and I haven’t clicked any of those links. But I did enjoy reading Ms Allen’s apocalyptic tale in the anthology. If you haven’t yet acquired a copy I urge you to do so. It’s great for dipping in to, just like a box you might find under a bed or in an attic, full of surprises, some to make your skin crawl, or the hairs on the back of you neck to stand up, all revealing the darker side of the human imagination.

Here’s another post from one of my fellow authors on The Box Under The Bed. Her story is a clever tale of a man with a certain attitude towards women getting his ‘come uppance’. Couldn’t be more topical just now. If you are one of the 2500 people who downloaded the digital edition whilst it was free the other day, you are in for a treat. Do please show your gratitude by telling all your friends about it and drop a review on Amazon and Goodreads. Source: Kidney Collection: I’d rather be the worst of the best than silent.

This is why I’m excited about being part of this ‘scary story’ project. My story is based on real events that took place in the North Atlantic in December 1835, involving an Irish ship en-route from Nova Scotia to Limerick. Source: “Writers not helping each other?

Juliet Nubel was born in Glasgow but now live in France. She began revealing her writing to the public just a year ago, as she explains below. She is one of the 20 authors who have contributed to the anthology “The Box Under The Bed”. Her story is heart-breakingly tragic rather than “scary” in the usually accepted sense. It occupies just two pages at the end of which you find yourself asking “what would I have done in that situation?” A situation, by the way, faced by many people every day.

Fellow ‘Box Under The Bed’ author Joanne Larner blogged about her experience working on the anthology of scary stories. It was, and continues to be, an exhilarating experience for all of us. Source: How Scary is Richard III??? Continue reading How Scary is Richard III???
