The Helping Hand of Horror, Part 2
My involvement in charity continues in October with the release of what is set to be the most exciting horror anthology of the year.
FEAR: A Modern Anthology of Horror and Terror brings together, for the first time, tales of murder, monsters and madness, by sixty of the world’s best indie horror authors. Discover what lurks in the water at the end of the garden, learn of the unforgiving loyalty of a loving toy and meet a writer, just itching to finish his latest horror story. Every author in the anthology has generously contributed their work for free. All royalties from sales will go directly to the international charities, Barnardo’s and Médecins Sans Frontières. Fear, with forewords by international bestselling authors, Peter James and Sherri Browning Erwin, will be released in paperback and on Kindle, October 3rd 2012.
My weird horror tale "Old Mabel's Stray Cat" will be included in the first volume of the anthology and I am going to hold a giveaway of my short story collection "Hoffman's Creeper and Other Disturbing Tales" to coincide with the launch of FEAR. All you have to do to win an ecopy of my collection is buy a copy of the first volume of FEAR, read my story, and answer this simple question by contacting me at ctrost(at)hotmail.com with the subject "Old Mabel's Stray Cat" and telling me what format your ereader accepts:
What name does Old Mabel give to the stray cat?
I will give a free copy to the first ten readers to answer the question correctly!
