Four Dead Ones Available

Four Dead Ones is now available on Amazon.
Four Dead Ones2

When three isn’t enough…

A rising rock star who lived fast, died young and didn’t let that stop him. A brand new street drug with an interesting side effect. A mother so haunted by the loss of her daughter that she misses the monsters springing up around her. A loving couple trapped in isolation as the world rots. Each a dark tale that will run its festering claws up and down your spine.

Four Dead Ones is a 10,000-word collection of zombie-inspired short fiction, some disturbing, some darkly amusing, all perfect for those who love that undead spirit.

New Author Blog

I have a new author blog at:

Joel Ansel’s Author Blog

I want to use this blog a as a platform for me and other writers to talk about things such as craft, promotions, publishing, etc. It’s no secret that I’m mostly into speculative fiction, leaning towards horror, but I want to hear from writers of all genres.

I am offering anyone who is interested the chance to guest post. Maybe you have some useful information that would help other writers. Or maybe you have a service that would be of interest to writers. I would also like to invite any authors who would like the chance to be interviewed to query me. I might even promote a few books if they are something that I’ve read and enjoyed.

As always, I will consider anything that concerns the horror genre.

If you are interested, please send a query here:
