    Hey, I will do as well and let you know but I'm sure its good. I will be posting my own short stories on here as well for a read. They have already been published in my two books out already but if you like you may be happy to check my blog/ website out. I'm currently working on my first novel.

    I lost my mother to the big C and my dad was a drinker, maybe that's a in depth reason as to why I write horror books, due to my own real life horror happening to me. I was lost, broken, confused, angry, scared, all the emotions that your character felt and, being a young boy at the time, makes it more poignant. I may be a few years older but I still have my own 'nightmare' days. So well done again from writing from a different type.

    Don't worry about the paragraphs, that comes with practice and editing, I still have to double check my own writing as well!
    No problem sharing from one writer to another.
    My publisher is called 'P.C. Publishers' who are an Austrian company but do publish in the English language. My books are found and available to buy through their own online shop and Amazon. They are also talking about transferring them to Ebooks. They are free, ie, you don't pay for the pages, cover, ISBN number (which is the books bar code and can cost £50 upwards) All you need to do, which can take a lot of patience (!) is your own editing and once it's been sent off to them, you can't change because that will cost you. They will agree to read your work first, then agree to print it, for which you will be sent a contract to sign, then some more paperwork will arrive for you to add the books details (title, page count, personnel details), then you send the book off (fully edited and completed) and wait for it to be published and a release date for it to come out. After that, you will be sent a secret password and number where you can access to see your books royalties (10%) of books sales. And that's that until your next book is ready for publication. The books cover is one that you can choose yourself but there are a few rules on how to get it, ie, it has to be free, 400pxs at least and available by the artist/photographer to use for commercial use.
    I know that's a lot to take in but once you get rolling with it, it makes sense.
    The 'P.C. Publisher' site does offer to send you some free info in a pamphlet once you give them your email address. I've still got all my paperwork from them plus I kept the signed contracts for my own sense of achievement and pride.
    The website is 'www.united-pc.eu' or you could type in p.c.publishers (as how I've put it) and my publishers should turn up on right side as the first link under the ads.
    I hope this helps, anything else more then happy to help. My email is 'gjones31@hotmail.co.uk' if it helps too.

    On this plus, I have also got my book in my local library and a good review from someone who got it out! Believe it and it can happen!

    Hey, hope this reaches you. Great depth to a mix of high and low emotions that portray a boy who needs to be found but finds only that he is lost, due to circumstances that are out of his control. Honest in the way that it is told, brutal but a look at the human in all of us that needs truth. Well done, the ending is sincere that life isn't perfect, nor is us.

    Hey all, hope everyone's ok. I'm an already published author of two books, both a collection of short stories and currently working on my first novel. My stories are horror, vampires, werewolves, zombies, ghosts, humans, the weird, disgusting and creepy, I love and write them all. I have my own website, 'HorrorHold', where extracts can be found and read and some more info about me, plus my own blog.
    I'll love to say hey to you all and discuss even more horror ideas or about films, books, etc.

    Hi! It's a pleasure to meet you! I love horror stories but I'm not very good at writing them. Anyway, if you need any help, feel free to ask.
