Gratitude, Foreboding, and Haunted Islands

Hello, my Freaky Darlings!

It’s been quite a week of highs, personally and professionally. On the personal front, even though I’m South African and we don’t tend to celebrate Thanksgiving, I did attend a Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday night. A friend of mine loves the idea behind the celebration. Not the history behind it but the concept of gratitude and celebrating with the people we’re grateful to have in our lives. So it was a wonderful evening of simply being thankful for those people, and needless to say, many a tear was shed as those reasons were shared.

Professionally, one of my short stories – Getting rid of Charlie, was accepted for an anthology. Tales of Foreboding was released this week.

You know that feeling.

Foreboding—the feeling that bad, or evil, awaits us at some point in our future, distant or near.

It’s like a pressure at the back of your brain, a whisper that it can all go terribly wrong. The sense of foreboding reminds us the bad is coming—but we don’t know exactly when.

Here are 14 tales where evil is nosing the chinks in the lives of the unsuspecting, searching for a way in and ready to wreak havoc. But these are no ordinary sufferings and miseries: cults, mythical forest creatures, elder gods, psychic powers, murder, parallel universes, monsters, death, nature gone awry, zombies, ghosts, and husbands.

Tales of Foreboding is available on Amazon in ebook and paperback.

This week’s video is about the mysterious and hauntingly beautiful island of Poveglia.

Besides Tales of Foreboding, I’ve also got many other tales on sale and freebies up for grabs.

Well … that’s it for now. Until next time …
Happy reading, and thank you for being a Freaky Darling!
