Holiday Horror On Halloween Sale; Another Great Review for The Tears Of Isis

One week and counting ‘til Halloween and Untreed Reads Publishing has announced a celebratory sale through the end of October, including selected full-length titles for $2.99.  My bird in this bush is a story, “Appointment in Time,” which is the lead-off selection in YEAR’S END:  14 TALES OF HOLIDAY HORROR.  “Join 14 horror authors as they reveal the dark side of our end-of-year celebrations.  This anthology of a holiday gone horrifyingly wrong contains stories by James S. Dorr, Richard Godwin, Nicky Peacock, John Stewart Wynne, Steve Shrott, Leah Givens, George Seaton, Kathryn Ohnaka, Jeremy K. Tyler, Betsy Miller, Byron Barton, Steve Bartholomew, Ali Maloney and Foxglove Lee.”  Granted it’s aimed toward the end of the year, but the chills are good for the entire Halloween to New Year’s Day holiday season.  Moreover, while it can be ordered through Untreed Reads’s store, the sale price is offered at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Apple’s iBookstore as well.  For more information, press the link here.

Also, though exclusively at the Untreed Reads site, all stand-alone short story titles are being offered at $0.50 each, including two by me, I’M DREAMING OF A. . ., an also holiday-themed chiller but this time for Christmas, and VANITAS (a third Untreed Reads title by me, the novelette PEDS, remains priced at $1.50).  For more info or ordering on these, press here.  (Hint:  once there, don’t look for books through categories, but enter “James Dorr,” or other author or title of choice, directly in the “Enter keyword here” box on the upper left).

“And here is a read for you just in time for Halloween.”  So begins Christine Rains’s blog for today which is featuring THE TEARS OF ISIS, including a blurb, a bio of me, and a very nice review by Christine.  “A well written collection of short stories to chill you to your core.“  To read the whole review click here, but a word in the interest of full disclosure.  Christine is a member of my writer’s group and a personal friend and, just to be completely honest, in the review which also appears on Amazon’s page for THE TEARS OF ISIS she gives it only 4 stars out of 5 ;-).

  1. There’s no way I could give Tears of Isis anything less that five stars. Even if I didn’t know you, had never read your work or accepted it for The Pedestal Magazine & for Star*Line.

    However, I’m not in your writers’ group. 😀

    Here’s to having a welcoming audience for readers of “Year’s End…Tales of Holiday Horror”!

  2. We’re a hard-nosed bunch, we writers group members are! : )=
