Vignettes From The End Of The World, published by Apokrupha
Vignettes From The End Of The World, published by Apokrupha and edited by Jacob Hadon, features my short story, titled "My Father's Flannel".  This collection limited all submissions to only 500 words with a theme, as I am sure you guessed, focusing on the last minutes of the world.  With so many submissions, it is fantastic to see the various visions of the end. 

This Anthology is quite special to me, as it marks the 16th book that  have been published in, as well as the first that my step-son, Cameron Shifflet, has been published in.  Along with others, such as KZ Morano, T. Fox Dunham, Guy Anthony Demarco, Terry M. West, Kenneth W. Cain, and others, this has turned out to be a fantastic collection!

As always, if and when you read this, please leave a review on Amazon and please tell everyone about your favorite story within.

This is how the world ends.
This is how the world ends.

Serial Killers Quattuor, Published by JWK Fiction
Serial Killers Quattuor, published by JWK Fiction, features my short story titled, "Thus is Life".  I have been interested in the minds of serial killers for as long as I can remember.  This isn't the first serial killer story that I have written, but is the only one written specifically for a book that revolves around the breed.

The entire book is fantastic, and I strongly urge everyone to check it out.  Once finished, please leave a review on Amazon, and be sure to share you favorite tale.

"You, me, the general public, have a fascination for true crime accounts of people like Bundy, and fictional depictions of similar characters in television shows such as Criminal Minds and Dexter. We have a macabre interest in real life serial killers and can't comprehend the pure lack of remorse of these monsters. But yet we can't get enough. So we watch these shows and buy these books and read about these abhorrent yet fascinating criminals. Serial Killers Quattuor is one such work that fulfils our insatiable obsession with serial killers in this terrifying and bloodcurdling short story collection."
