So my 12 year old daughter and I took a walk the other day, and she was telling me about this dream she had. In her defence she is watching the walking dead, and I do not believe in censorship of fictive shows or movies.
Well my daughter told me about this dream which went something like this; it was the zombie apocalypse and the main person was an android, but didn’t know it himself. He only found out because he was bit by a zombie.
I think this is a GREAT idea to work from! I asked her if I could borrow her idea to write it, and she was a little surprised that I thought her dream sounded like something that could be a story. They know I write, but never read anything I made. In the end she told me that I could have her idea, but only one person could survive.
Have I told you that I love the way her mind works?
I know I had not planned on working on a zombie story, but I simply has to write this.
I hired Michael Cruz to design me a logo, and he took all the crazy shit I threw at him and created this beauty. I’m im love with my interdimensional death-deer.
I am working on two things right now, a short story about an abandoned prison in space, and a really short horror story about dads and mirrors.
I am working on a video about animated horror, I hope to have that up this weekend. I am also working on writing a phone text horror story, it is seriously harder than you’d think.
I need to be better at posting reviews here, books, music and movies – I don’t think myself a critic, but I might inspire someone to watch or read something, and that would be awesome.
What happened in my hiatus, is that I decided to make this my main blog, and thus I will of course use it more often, but also not always write super long and thought through posts as I have in the past. I can however promise that it is all horror related, I will not start talking about my private life (that is what facebook is for).
Just posted the worst and the best book I read in recent time, I sadly don’t find a lot of time to read but I try to keep up with it, and you are always welcome to send me a friends request on goodreads.
So lastly I have been digging this record lately, thought I would pass that recommendation on. (you can also find it on YT)
This is a free sample chapter of our upcoming book Phantasms. Contact info and disclaimer at the end of the post. Every chapter in the book concludes it self, so this is a complete short story.
The story is about some boys who plays a prank that goes horribly wrong. (okay I was always rubbish with blurbs)
It’s written for young adults, there is nothing too graphic in it.
You can also download it as a PDF, sorry – no clue how to create a mobi file.
