“The Digging Place” now available in FORNEVER AFTER!

The Digging Place in FORNEVER AFTER Art

My short story, “The Digging Place,” is now available in Jolly Horror Press’ romantic horror collection, ForNever After.

Kali adores the odd treasures her husband brings home from The Digging Place, a warehouse full of discarded junk. Until the day he shows up with something that belonged to her former lover …

“The Digging Place” is one of sixteen stories about love gone not just wrong, but God-awfully wrong. From the back cover, written by editor Jonathan Lambert:

True love…a soul mate? Desired by most, found by few. What you are up against… is A LOT. For love to stay true, and endure. And that’s without the doom and gloom and horror that falls upon the lovers in this anthology.

These are stories where two people nearly find everlasting bliss and happiness.

NEARLY. You didn’t miss that word did you? It was never meant to be. That makes it hurt worse. They were THE one. The one to grow old with, but also the one that never saw it coming.

FORNEVER AFTER includes 16 tales of tragic love, surrounded by all kinds of horrors. If you are looking for stories with happy endings, this isn’t the book for you….

“The Digging Place” to appear in FORNEVER AFTER

Souvenir watch that might be sold in a seafaring museum gift shop

This watch features prominently in my short story, “The Digging Place.” I had been surfing the ’net for a watch like it to no avail for at least forty minutes, and finally I said to Nathan, “I need a picture of like, a souvenir watch that a seafaring museum might sell in its gift shop? For reference? And like … I got nothing.” He walks over to the book shelf, grabs this, and brings it over. “You mean … like this one?”

I’m pleased to announce that one of the short stories I wrote last summer—called “The Digging Place”—has been accepted to and will appear in Jolly Horror Press’ ForNever After anthology, slated for release later this year.

ForNever After will feature tragic and scary tales of romantic love, so “The Digging Place”—which is about missed opportunities and love lost—will fit right in (if you read my work, then you know that tragic and scary romance is in my wheelhouse, so … ). I won’t give any spoilers, but I will tell you that Tarot Cards, Mystic Connecticut, and a warehouse full of junk in Tennessee figure prominently.

I’ll let you know when it’s been released!
