Creepy clowns…they’ll always be here…

We've always been here art 2

I’m thrilled to announce that my short story “We’ve Always Been Here” will be appearing in Great Old Ones Publishing’s upcoming anthology Invocations.

I don’t want to say much and ruin the surprise, but I will say the first draft of this story was written last Halloween (October 31) and was inspired by yet another report of a “creepy clown” attack. Remember those?

As of today, the release date is slated for September 1. I’ll let you know when it’s available.

  1. Kristi,

    Hello to one of our favorite Connecticut authors… (our cousin Diana, former CT hospital administrator wrote 3 books in her Medical field and is also from CT … prop’s to family author too..)

    I always enjoyed our visits to Wells Fargo to see you and get updates about your exciting and scary books … I saw a clip for the new Steven King “IT” with the scary clown once played by Tim Curry…. Looks “scary cool”… I hope you do the Blog with characters from the Walking Dead again.. Meril/Daryl are favorite zombie fighting siblings and wish they would have kept Meril around longer… love him in movies … looking forward to seeing him also in the new Guardians of the Galaxy flick …

    Best wishes always… and stay spooky my friend…

    • Hello, gals!! It’s so great to hear from you!! Not much has been going on here, just the same old thing! I probably will skip seeing “IT” because I’m one of those losers who just adores the original. But, I AM doing a “haunted trail” in New Milford in October if all goes well — you know, dressing up and scaring people on a trail. It’s going to be awesome.

      I’m always so glad to hear from you; a cheery hello always brightens my day. I hope all is well in your world and I think of you often. Halloween is right around the corner, so get ready for your scare-on!
