Dreadful: Tales of the Dead and Dying available in E-book

I am very proud to announce that my first collection of short stories, Dreadful: Tales of the Dead and Dying is available in E-book form.  It is available on Page Foundry, Scribd, Tolino, and also in Kindle format on Amazon.  It will be available on iBooks, Nook, and Kobo within the next two days.  Links, cover art, and the chapter listing can be found below.  I debated making the collection free, but ultimately decided that three years of work was worth three dollars (2.99).  If anyone is interested, though, I will gladly email a Kindle friendly copy!  Just leave your email in a comment, thanks!  If you download the book please leave feedback... you know how much it helps :)

Insecure Writer's Support Group

Military life and school have taken me away from my two passions for 3-4 years now.  School is done for the next couple of years and my Air Force career is as settled as it is going to be, meaning I can spend time with my wife and daughter again...and I can write again!

I am insecure about publishing my work of horror short stories: Dreadful.  I am going the Amazon e-book route because I honestly can't live two lives.  I can't be a dedicated Air Force officer, with all that entails, and give the business side of my writing the fair chance and time it necessitates.  I can only hope that my work will be not just good but meaningful to people.  There are a few running themes in these stories and my wish is that, having read them, my audience will be not disturbed but curious.  I am not a person of faith, but believe our senses do us a disservice.  There is more than we can see, hear, and touch.  The possibilities are all around us, just out of range.
