Anthology Announcement: Twisted Yarns from @Sirens_Call #horror


Hello, Travelers,

I bring you exciting news! Siren’s Call Publications has just released their newest anthology, Twisted Yarns, featuring “The Garden of Love,” by yours truly.

This story, dedicated to my mother, is about a woman who turns to gardening to move past her husband’s death… and puts a little too much of herself into her new obsession.

Here’s more about the book, courtesy of SCP:


Twisted Yarns is a collection of eleven depraved stories that will warp your mind and spark your curiosity for tales best muttered in hushed tones and dark corners.

Imagine finding a baby in a dumpster; how far would you go to protect it? Picture yourself trapped in a maze with a monstrous creature that wants nothing more than to spill your blood while others bet on the outcome of your life; would you run to survive? Do you think you could – run or survive? Perhaps you’re clinging to a lost love so strongly that your rational mind doesn’t realize how strongly it’s clinging to you; is it bliss or torture? Come to think of it, is it safe to accept that tasty sample the kindly gentleman who works at the grocery story is offering you? It couldn’t be anything but harmless, could it?

If you prefer your horror twisted with a bit of grit sprinkled on top for flavor, this is the perfect anthology for you!

Twisted Yarns is available on:

Amazon: US | UK | Australia | Canada | Germany | Italy | France | Spain | Japan | Mexico | Brazil | India | The Netherlands
