An Audio Story and a New Release

Hello, Minions!

I have some news to share. It’s been a pretty big weekend for me.

First of all,

the super talented Jeff Clement has produced an audio recording of my story “He’s Not Listening.” He did an amazing job and I couldn’t have asked for any better. If you need audio, he’s your man.

Here are some links to Jeff’s work

Second,

If you didn’t already know: HORRID LITTLE THINGS is now available on Amazon. If you enjoyed the previous two volumes of 100 Tiny Tales of Terror this should be right up your alley.

Enjoy, Minions!


New Project: Wicked Little Things

I’ve decided to put Sins of a Father on hold a bit longer in favor of a new project I’ve started working on. I don’t know when I’ll go back to Sins, but it won’t be until I’m loving the story again. Right now I’m just not feeling it so I’m not going to force myself to work on it.

The new project is a followup to 100 Tiny Tales of Terror. For the time being I’m calling it Wicked Little Things. Like its predecessor it will be packed with 100 tales of 100 words each for you reading pleasure. This time only a small handful (five at most) will have appeared on my blog at one point or another. Unlike its predecessor it will be divided into 10 sections, each containing its own variety of stories centered around a common theme, rather than 100 stories ordered randomly.

I don’t have a release date yet, but I’m thinking it’ll likely be sometime in the first quarter of 2015.

Here is a preview of the cover, which–like the title–may or may not change.

If you haven’t read 100 Tiny Tales of Terror yet, you better get moving before you have twice as much terror to keep you up at night!


I got up at 4:30 this morning and published a book. What did you do today?

Yes. You read that title right. I was up at 4:30 this morning, and I used that extra hour and a half to publish a book I’ve been working hard to finish. I apologize if that makes you feel a bit less productive. To be honest, I hadn’t planned on getting up any earlier than normal. I had planned on waiting until tonight to publish this bad boy, but I woke up and couldn’t get back to sleep. Whether that was due to anticipation or my wife’s snoring I dare not hazard a guess. In lieu of sleep, I decided to be productive and push this project past the finish line.

And now, the great reveal… Say hello to my little friend:

100-cover

100 stories.
100 words each.
Tiny snippets of terror for your consumption.

Take them in one at a time and savor the twisted flavor of death and destruction, or devour them all in one sitting–a nonstop feast of terrifying creatures and horrible happenings. The choice is yours, as will be the fear.

You may want to sleep with the light on.

About 30-35 of the stories have appeared on my blog. I lost count in the editing process where stories were removed and replaced with others. The rest of the stories are new. You’ve never seen them, but I’m certain you’ll love them. Well, I’m hoping you’ll love them anyway. If you don’t you should probably get your noggin examined as a precaution. It might be broken.

Now, be a good little minion and snag your copy today… or hold out for the print version. If all goes according to plan it should be available in a few days. Even better yet, be the first of your friends to procure both a digital AND a print edition!

A joking aside, I’d really appreciate if you guys and gals would spread the word about this newest collection of disturbing words from yours truly. Maybe throw a tweet my way (@AdamIckes–follow me while you’re at it), reblog this post, share a link on Facebook, like and share my Facebook page. Anything would be seriously appreciated, and I’d be happy to return the favor if and when you need it. Just say the word, for you are not only my minion, but I am yours as well. We’re all in this together.

Warm regards to the lot of you. Keep on writing, friends.
