Holiday Shopping Tip #514: Give “Halloween” for Christmas!

Still unsure what to get that discerning horror fan for Christmas?  How about a bloodcurdling tale of demons, jack-o’-lanterns, and serial murder?

Yes, folks, time may be getting short, but thanks to the miracle of e-book technology, you can download a copy of "The Woman Who Hated Halloween" (Damnation Books) in a matter of minutes.  Suitable for all your holiday gifting needs!

Does your horror-loving significant other/friend/co-worker have a Kindle?  No problem.  It’s easy to give the Kindle edition as a gift; here’s how.

Make it an orange and black Christmas.  Happy holidays!

And yes, I’m still looking for my ending.  Actually, I’m beginning to wonder if this draft even has an ending.  I’ve been holding out hope that the longer I have to wait for it, the more brilliant it will be when I find it.  This might be a tad unrealistic of me.  Maybe there is no brilliant discovery to be found.  In fact, I’m starting to fear I’m just going to get to a point where I type <insert ending here> and be done.

Hey, I don’t like it any more than you do.

Anyway, let’s enjoy a snippet:

Progress Report, in which I keep searching

And we’re 5K further along with "From Earth I Have Arisen."  See?

I’ve also moved the goalposts again.  Did you notice?  Yeah, 30K was probably a tad optimistic of me.

So I drive on, still in search of my ending.  If you see it, please let me know.
