Red Heels, Dark Anemone - Nailpolish Stories

Ah, what would summer be without some creepy tales told around a campfire? How about a prom night gone wrong? Or a haunted graveyard? 

And if you like your horror short and sweet - like a s'more! - check out Red Heels and Dark Anemone in the July 2016 issue of Nailpolish Stories. The good news? No danger of cavities! The bad news? Just like those marshmallows, scary stories can stick to our skin.

(And hey, blogging buddy Michelle Wallace has three stories in the same issue!)

    1. My stories are more creepy than scary, and they're only 25 words each. You should be okay. :)

  10. Thanks for the shout out, Madeline!
    I didn't get any e-mail to say that Nailpolish Stories had published my pieces. Last night, I just wandered by the site and saw them there!
    Your stories are always CREEPY GOOD!

    1. Ack! Well, at least it was a nice surprise, right? :)

      Is it weird that I find "creepy good" a huge compliment? :)

  11. I like to read horror from time to time, although never before bedtime or at night when my husband is not home. I find that's when the dog is most likely to start barking...or Katie Cat jerks her head up in alarm and stars into the darkness behind my chair. Your short stories sound like good reads!

    1. I'm usually alone when I'm writing, and I often creep myself out. :)

      I hope you enjoy the stories!
