I’m pleased to announce that after a nearly three-year hiatus in book publishing, my latest book titles Shattered Darkness is nearing release! Its nine stories often feature O. Henry- and Twilight Zone-style twists. Shattered Darkness is my fourth book of this type.
My other books featuring such stories include The Jagged Edge of Shadows, Touched, and Palpable Imaginings. All three books can be found on Amazon in a variety of formats.
Palpable Imaginings features the work of seven other writers whose stories touched me and who accepted my invitation to have their work be included in the anthology. Our tales often featured Mystery, Suspense, Sci-fi, Fantasy, Action, and Thrillers! Stories of redemption, retribution, murder, courage, hope, love, new beginnings, alternate history, unusual powers, science gone wrong, nightmares, fate, narrow escapes, shoot-outs and survival. You’ll find them all here in 17 selected stories from 8 writers in Palpable Imaginings!
All three books can be found on Amazon in a variety of formats.
Touched: Terror, love, chills, hope, magic, thrills, and fantasy await you. Come inside and be Touched! These stories will inspire, haunt, amaze, and delight listeners who love to experience the wide array of speculative and flash fiction genres. Journey from inner hearts to outer space, utopias to dystopias, and many worlds in between. Experience the hope, strength, perseverance, despair, and heroism of ordinary people as they face breathtaking odds with their lives and, sometimes, the fate of whole worlds hanging in the balance. Touched is a celebration of life!
At the Jagged Edge of Shadows:
Best-selling author Russ Towne sends tingles down the spine with 12 short stories evoking the twists, irony, horror, and startling insight of O’Henry, Alfred Hitchcock, and Rod Serling’s Twilight Zone television series.
Listen to the unintended consequences of “eternal” youth, the mystery of a child’s toy, the power of the spoken word, and what happens when what you wish for comes true. With touches of the paranormal, this collection of stories makes you wonder what really goes “bump” in the night and invites you to peer more closely beyond the jagged edge of deepest shadow where our hopes, dreams, and fears collide.
An image of the cover of my most recently published book is shown above. A cover for Shattered Darkness hasn’t yet been created. I plan to have an image of the new cover to share with you in two to three weeks.
With love and gratitude,
