A Horror Short
“This is a great Halloween short, it has all the elements of a great, seasonal read… the spooky local Urban Legend, trick-or-treaters, ghosts, possible severed body parts, and TRICKS!!” full review at Becki’s Book Blog
“Another great story by Mr. Greene. I honestly don’t think this guy could write a bad story, even if he tried. This story was a friendly and slightly warped reminder to not trick. Just give out the dang candy!” Lisa C. on Amazon
Teen punks Kell and Toby have big plans for Halloween. They’re going to out-trick the neighborhood kids with the kind of pranks that will leave their victims scarred for life. But a trio of otherworldly trick-or-treaters refuses to walk away empty-handed. Kell and Toby will soon know the true meaning of Halloween.
WRAPPED IN BLACK
That least understood and most variable of personae, The Witch, remains a source of fascination and fear the world over.
They walk among us, plying their skills, stealing our hearts -and perhaps other pieces of us- for purposes known only to them.
In this boiling brew, you’ll taste not only eye of newt and wing of bat, but wrathful scorn, summoned spirits, and pierced veils that bleed wonders dark and delicious.
Straddle the whisk and travel the worlds of Witchcraft, Voodoo and eleven worlds ‘twixt. But be careful not to fall…in love or into the abyss.
“Patrick C. Greene is a masterful story-teller.”
“PCG is from the twilight zone, and I am just lucky to be along for the ride!”
“He kind of reminds me of a young Clive Barker.”
Exciting news today! One of my publishers, Sekhmet Press, decided to make four of my books free on Sunday and Monday, April 13 & 14 on Amazon. Don’t miss this chance to pick up some highly-rated horror, and please take the time to leave a review. Not only does it help with those insane Amazon algorithms, but I really want to know what you think. Thanks for taking the time! Hope you enjoy the terrifying ride.
Excerpt “Authors, or any other creators of digital media for that matter, should not be branded as offensive simply because they have released their work in an outlet that is friendliest to their needs, and it shows a huge disconnect between retailers and creators whenever a store owner refuses to accept the hurdles that many independent producers face when they try to get their work into a retail market. Of COURSE we’re going to offer it electronically! You want to sell books, you put them in to every potential place where buyers exist. That’s not intended to be a personal slight against bookstores. It’s BUSINESS. It would be absolutely foolish to do otherwise. Should I be forced to take a hit to my revenue stream in order to protect an increasingly outdated business model owned by someone who would probably never carry my work in the first place if I’d had it printed myself, or who refuses to get with the 21st century and find new ways to cater to readers who have drifted on to new platforms? People all over the country who own small bookstores are changing up their establishments to appeal to readers in whole new ways. Check outPowell’s Books, who partnered with Kobo ebooks, or Politics & Prose with their nifty Espresso book machine. This is how you usher your bookstore into the new age. Not by tearing down local authors whose only sin was to write a book that they wanted to get into the hands of as many people as possible.”
