Macabre Sanctuary #WIPWednesday

Hey, everyone. It’s October. A time ghosts, goblins, werewolves, vampires, and just about any other creature you can imagine. Halloween is only a few weeks away, so what time to read some spooky stories?

I’ve contributed in several anthologies with other authors. Macabre Sanctuary is a collection of ten short stories published by AIW Press in 2016. Here’s the blurb:


Thrills. Chills. Shadows and superstitions. Things that go bump in the night. Macabre Sanctuary boasts suspenseful fiction designed to elicit goosebumps and raise heart rates.

  • Learn the lore of a haunted island.
  • Grapple with the undead while robbing graves Halloween night.
  • Endure a hazing ritual unlike any other.
  • Deal with a demon at an All Souls’ Day celebration.
  • See what happens when you court death in the wild.
  • Battle zombies and cannibals in a quest to stay alive.
  • Travel back in time to witness the birth of true evil.
  • Fear prophetic nightmares made manifest.
  • Come to terms with new ethereal realities.
  • Befriend a feline to extend earthly life.

This collection from ten talented authors offers ghosts and demons, spirits and zombies, cannibals and killers… even a ferocious animal. Historical and contemporary tales of violence and fright keep readers on the edges of their seats. There’s something for everyone who loves spine-tingling, bone-chilling, blood-curdling stories.


Here’s a list of the stories and their authors.

  • The Keeper’s House – Joan Hall
  • The Lady Ghost – Mae Clair
  • Initiation – Jan Morrill
  • The All Souls Ritual – Staci Troilo
  • A Good Place to Die – Pamela Foster
