A sneak peek of my first story in the anthology, “The Bewitching Day:”

“Plastic spiders crawl in my cupcakes, full moons play hide-and-seek indoor every night, and my hands permanently smell like pumpkin guts; the orange organ bits and seeds cling to me even in my sleep when my palms are clean once more.  There is a chill in the brisk night air, a howl in the distant hills, whistling through the trees as Pumpkin Jack and the Headless Horseman emerge from the shadows to give you a fright.  It is truly a day for fright, a holiday where monsters are the norm and fun is measured by how loud your shrill scream rings.”

Our July monthly wallpaper features a quote from Michelle’s story in the anthology.

Our February 2015 wallpaper features a quote from Dan’s story in the anthology.

Praise for “Shared Days:”

Comnick brought back a fond memory from my childhood of Poppy Day and how we would buy paper poppies from Veterans… Each story was unique and thoroughly enjoyable. A must have and must read!!”- S.Z., Amazon Review, FIVE STARS!
