Kidney Collection: I’d rather be the worst of the best than silent.

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.

“Writers not helping each other? Rubbish.”

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.

What a difference a year makes…

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.

Being Published in “The Box Under The Bed”

Another of my fellow contributors to the scary anthology describes the experience. I have just revisited Adele’s story to remind me of its brilliance. It is a remarkable achievement to combine the slowly building tension of a classic horror story with a powerful statement about attitudes to mental illness. But it is just one of 27 tales from 20 different authors in this book. A cornucopia of stories to set your skin creeping and your blood curdling. Perfect for Halloween or any dark night.

What does it mean to be an Indie Author?

If you thought being a writer was just a matter of sitting down and putting your thoughts onto paper, this is for you. There’s a lot more to being an author, especially if you lack the backing of one of the big publishing houses. Even then, you still have to do a lot of this other stuff.
