2 Krampus stories are coming out online and in anthology

More great news for my writing- I have heard from https://threedropspoetry.co.uk;

they will publish my Krampus Flash fiction piece in their Midwinter edition, which will be published online and in print in mid-December.

and the online magazine https://deadmanstome.net has accepted a longer version of my Krampus story for their site.

Krampus, is St Nicholas’s alter ego, with goat’s horns and hooves. He carries a sack and stick to beat naughty children and put them in the sack to carry them away to Hell. Nice huh? He is hugely famous in Austria and Germany. This all happens around 5 December.

Good looking chap isn’t he? Not a bit scary for kids! But great fun for me to write about.

Also today, yes I’m on a Tuesday lucky roll today,  CafeLit  have published (as a reprint) a 100 worder of mine ‘Treasure Hunt’ which I likened to drinking a Black Mozart (choc liqueur/cherry brandy and juice).

Second entry

Well 6 months later after some encouragement I have decided that yes it’s probably a good idea to update my blog.I’ve been getting more of my fiction published and now that I have a story coming out on
www.alfiedog.com (Hurrah!) which you can pay and download for the grand sum of 39p (yes a real bargain I hear you say), I feel that having a blog of my own is of value.
My fiction is also coming out in 3 anthologies this autumn/winter 2016 – from 2 indie presses and one self published from Otley Writers Group. I will keep you updated.
