There wasn't an inspirational picture last week, but we are honoured to host the third part of the excellent In Dire Straits by Alisha Jordon, and the chilling second part of Born of a Witch by Nick Paschall. If you're a fan of narrated horror, my own story Let It Cry is one of the featured … Continue reading Stitched Saturday – Armageddon Days are here again

Back in … Continue reading Fleshing It Out With Lisa Vasquez
