RE: Horrible Halloween Tales

Can they be of an adult nature? I have a story but it is not for the faint of heart.
If it were a film it would need a 15 age limit.

Here is how the tale would start....

Fact: These items were given to me twenty six years ago when I was nineteen
Fact: Many cultures and religions believe that demons can possess animals, plants, deceased persons or inanimate objects.
Fact: The Bible and other holy writings state that people have successfully exorcised demons in God's name.

Well I'm intrigued Dodgy and not put off by the thought of adult content Blush so when can we read the rest?

RE: Horrible Halloween Tales

Sounds fine to me Jack - I think we're all adults here, but we can add a disclaimer just in case.

I'm about halfway through my tale - have a great story, but struggling to make all the pieces fit together without plot holes (maybe I'm worrying too much).

If we can have any submissions in by the 29th it would be helpful (not a lot of time I know, I wish I had thought about this earlier)

Probably best if you either drop me an email or send me a PM with your submission and I can compile what we get into a .mobi file.

Looks like it may just be me, you and possibly Lexi so it'll be a small book Tongue

Hmm - can I do scary? Nice challenge, Lou - I'll definitely give it a go. But it might have to be psychological scary, I'm not sure if I can do horror...wanders off to think...

RE: Horrible Halloween Tales

I too am fretting about writing spooky stuff - but I tell myself it's a challenge. I don't read horror. I remember as I child, avoiding ghost stories as they gave me nightmares. But my sister generally insisted on telling me about the ones she read...Undecided

I try to think - "piece of prose on a set subject" - But the best thing about it is that our writing will inevitably reflect our personality, that's the fun of it. It is the same when three artists sit down to paint a still-life of a vase of flowers; you wouldn't think that the end result could be that different, but they often are. I'm really looking forward to seeing these stories.

You're lucky! Any story I think of ends up with everyone rather happy and better off than they were before. It's not fair!

Actually, mine is shaping up pretty deranged, so I may have to withdraw that comment - either that or we can all have a post-publication KUF therapy session. (Picks up glass of Monbazillac, dips raven feather quill in red ink and resumes story....)
