Twitter is a Tool

Tales from the Ragged Edge

IMG_1041 Pictured: Twitter’s preferred user–a troll.

I used to have some variation on a certain conversation about Twitter from people who didn’t use it. They didn’t see the point. They’d tried it out, and couldn’t figure out why anyone would use Twitter. My explanation always amounted to this: Twitter is a tool. If you don’t need that tool, don’t use that tool. Not everyone has a use for it. It’s just that simple.

For me, Twitter was kind of a crucial tool for a long time. I found about open calls for anthologies that led to some of my favorite short stories. I cultivated a community of other people who were crazy enough to take a whack at this lonely, chaotic writing thing. I needed Twitter for marketing when short stories and occasional novels were published because if people don’t know about them, no one will buy them. Even though sometimes it’s…

2. #DarkerSideOfFiction2017

DSOF

On Saturday 7th October, I was privileged to attend The Darker Side of Fiction 2017 event in Peterborough along with a whole host of supremely talented writers. Now I have never attended a book event of this scale and walking in and seeing all of the incredible tables and eye catching books, I was shaking with excitement.

I met my publisher, David, and we were doing a pre-release launch of One by One. After an hour and 40 minute drive on 5 hours sleep, I was snapped awake by having the paperback copy of my book thrust into my hand. It’s a surreal feeling to hold your work, to flick through the pages and for me, knowing this was the first book I ever completed, I was stunned into silence. It was a great moment and I am very grateful to Britain’s Next Best Seller for all their work in…

For my first October Frights post, I’m sharing an excerpt from my soon-to-be-released-if-I-ever-get-it-finished book, An Uneasy Inheritance. In this section, Kyr abruptly leaves her house after a frightening encounter with the resident spirit and finds herself in her  great-aunt’s garden.

The rusty metal gate protested loudly as it swung shut, drawing me from my reverie. I looked around, bewildered but not frightened by the fact that I now stood on the other side of the gate, with no memory of having walked through it. Recalling Celeste’s final words to me, I muttered, “Well…

Broken Mirror and other Morbid Tales by Carmilla Voiez – Review

Dance of the Butterfly

Broken Mirror
These stories are not just morbid. They take you down dark passageways of the human psyche. There is fear, violence, trauma. I found some of the tales impacted me to such a degree that I needed a breather before moving on to the next. Ms. Voiez is kind enough to even list trigger warnings before some of the stories, in case the subject matter may resonate too personally.

The very first tale sets its own interesting tone, as it begins feeling more like a gothic romance then quickly travels down much darker pathways. Though it is the longest of the set, I was caught by the ending and wish there would be more.

Victims aplenty are in this collection, but Ms. Voiez does not ignore the transgressors, delving into their minds. The various points of view are fascinating, disturbing, and even sympathetic in some very tragic situations.

I also enjoyed…
