A deserted old railroad track ran just outside West Point, a small town that reeked of it’s paper mill. The station master was killed there while carrying his lantern; his head being severed from his body, it’s said. Legend has it that late at night, when conditions are right, you can still see the light of his lantern on the track.
High schoolers liked to take dates to seek “The Light” in the gloom; most never did … but pursued other delights. I was enjoying other delights with my date when suddenly she stiffened … and breathlessly exclaimed, “I see the Light!”
Just a quick reminder that my three works published on Kindle are also available in paperback. You can find them either by googling “Amazon” and “Phil Slattery” or by following this link to my author’s page.
While you’re in Amazon, you will see that two of my stories can also be found in Creepy Campfire Quarterly and Infernal Ink.
All three of my works are also available on Kindle Unlimited.
The Farmington Writers Circle meets again on Thursday, January 12, in the Entertainmart (formerly Hardback) Café at 7:00 pm. I will be leading the discussion on what I have learned from publishing on Kindle and using their marketing tools. Everyone is invited.
The Farmington Writers Circle is a group of local writers who are interested in exploring and developing new means of marketing and publicizing their works.
If you have enjoyed some of my stories scattered around the Internet, I have good news for you. I have two collections of short stories and one novelette now available on Amazon in either Kindle or in paperback.
The two short story collections are entitled A Tale of Hell and Other Works of Horror, a collection of published and previously unpublished horror (obviously) short stories, and The Scent and Other Stories, a collection of short stories on love, relationships, and the dark side of human nature. The novelette is entitled Click. It is a suspense/thriller about a policeman recovering from an emotional trauma, who secludes himself on an isolated island only to find himself hunted by two unknown assailants.
