I wasn’t expecting another contest. I know I said that the last attempt was the last one, but how can I pass up the opportunity to have a chance to win or get noticed. If you haven’t heard Inkshares has a new horror contest for publication. 

An ancient evil sits at the bottom of the lake. Slowly releasing darkness into the world. There are those who protect us. Just hope they find you first. 13 stories of the supernatural. 

Only the last story that connects the twelve previous stories remains to be rewritten the last one connects those prior and concludes the series with it’s purpose.

So even if you can’t order please spread the word.

PLEASE NOTE THIS IS FOR A PAPERBACK COPY I’ve tried to change it from saying Hardcover but it won’t change. I know crazy but still.
So here we are again. I know my last attempt failed but I will try harder this time.

 

It has been some time since I have posted and update. Thank you all for following along. While I was going to wait for a contest to start another campaign. Well I haven’t heard anything in almost a year. I decided now was the time to set up 

’Tales From Mist Lake’

Horror Anthology, Psychological thriller
An ancient evil sits at the bottom of the lake. Slowly releasing darkness into the world. There are those who protect us. Just hope they find you first. 13 stories of the supernatural. 

All stories are written, They do need a good polish to help with continuity and grammar. 

Letting you know this is for paperback not hardcover. It was changed last time, but it still says hardcover. Very confusing I know.

This will be the only promotion happening this year unless a contest starts that fits one of my other books.

I know what you are thinking. Why are you not hearing from me? Well it has been a difficult month. I got sick again had a little health scare. I’ve had to reorganize several things in my life. It has been difficult, but the main thing was putting off some promotion for a short time. 

Things have been well for activity for bringing people to the page for "Vast Land" as of this post only one order has been placed. I still have hope.

Some of you may see this twice, it will be posted on all dashboards. Two with a link for 

"Vast Land"

Brent’ life is changed, just as he comes out of his shell, becoming the new lead for Jin‘s band. His dreams of finally having a life are coming true. Brett is haunted with visions of bodies that are soon found torn to pieces. Brent soon learns a secret that sends his life to another world that he never imagined to be real.

  • Vast Land is stand alone novel based off the events that happen from a series of short stories. "Tales From Mist Lake" after a darkness is released into our world. Brent soon learns he has a role to play. Facing off with Mr. Scratch.
  • This chapters listed now are the rough draft version with only the first chapter being extended to how the story will go. (Still being edited as you can tell.)

 

Thank you for your time.

Sorry for no updates. For the last month I have been sick from various issues. I have decided to start a new campaign. "Vast Land"  100 day campaign.

Brent’ life is changed, just as he comes out of his shell, becoming the new lead for Jin‘s band. His dreams of finally having a life are coming true. Brett is haunted with visions of bodies that are soon found torn to pieces. Brent soon learns a secret that sends his life to another world that he never imagined to be real. 

 

Vast Land is stand alone novel based off the events that happen from a series of short stories. "Tales From Mist Lake" after a darkness is released into our world. Brent soon learns he has a role to play. Facing off with Mr. Scratch.

This chapters listed now are the rough draft version with only the first chapter being extended to how the story will go. (Still being edited as you can tell.)

 

I’ve always been afraid of what others would say. I know by releasing these thirteen stories I will take the next step needed to become a better writer. What I need most is feedback. Suffering from dyslexia I have trouble structuring stories properly, and choosing the correct subtext or word choice. I hope to release a full novel set in Red Bear, TX that is a sequel of ’Tales from Mist Lake’ This would be a full novel suffering the effects of these short stories. "Vast Land"

Please help out in anyway you can. Recommend, tweet, share on Facebook or simply read one of the stories listed. By helping me step into the world of published authors you help me grow as an writer. 

Thank you for your time.

Thank you all for supporting "Tales From Mist Lake" sad to say it did not make the required Pre-Orders for publication. At this time I am not submitting any other books for promotion. Unless another contest comes along. Until then the next book for promotion will be "Vast Land"

On a side note the contest for a copy of "The Chair" has ended the two winners are.

 Kristin Scoggins, Steve Schwalb

 

Thank you again,

Still time to order, but the contest has one more day. Being in the top twenty-five out of over 100 other contestants for the contest. I’m still glad to be part of the contest. This will be the last time I will try to fund for this year. Unless another contest comes to fit my other stories. 

Thank you all for following along and helping where you could. I was not able to get a voice actor for "mirror house " also I have not had any free time to voice another story. Things are still crazy around here. 

Thank you again. I know it will be a close contest for the top 5 contestants,  help out where you can.

You’re probably wondering why I have not updated recently. I want to tell you now that I had to set aside a few priorities, in order to see how my friends and family were doing around the Houston area.

That along with other recent things happening with multiple hurricanes and the recent earthquake have left me startled. I know that many of you have friends and families in these areas.  Please understand why I have decided to take a small break from pushing this book out.

Now that is almost the end I will try and push forward and getting more orders out. This will be the last time of the year that I choose to try and publish these select short stories. I hope many of you can understand my choice.

I have also been trying to get another audio reading out, but I have failed to find the perfect reader for the job. If it was a male voice I would do it myself, but I need a female voice. I will spend the rest of the week trying to find one, for the short story mirror house. If I do not find one, I will find a male or read another story.

Thank you all for understanding again. If you cannot purchase a copy please share this page.


Okay small update, the information says hardcover. Well that is not true it is actually paperback. 

If you look at the pricing you’ll notice they are for paperback prices. It was changed before preorders were activated. I just wanted to let all followers know.

 

Thank you for still following along. I hope we make it further in this contest. It has a fantastic learning experience. I am learning more now then in the past few years. 

If you can not pre-order a copy please share campaign or give a small review of any of the stories listed. You can also hear "The Thing From Mist Lake" on Youtube.

 Inkshares 2017 Horror Contest

 

Journey to the town of Red Bear Texas. Explore Mist Lake in 13 tales of terror. The anthology of Red Bear is one to read, each story stands on its own, but connect to each other one way or another.

Preorder Tales From Mist Lake
