Chris Allinotte's "DAYS OF MADNESS" has begun!

Chris Allinotte’s “DAYS OF MADNESS” is in full swing. This year’s fiction theme is “Hidden Horrors.” As Chris detailed on his blog site, “While the overall theme of ‘Days of Madness’ is, and always will be, psychological horror stories, this year, I'm looking for secrets and mysteries.”

Over the next ten days, ten authors take on this theme and offer you their own unique interpretations. My story kicked off the event. C’mon and celebrate the madness with us.

Flames of Quiet Light— Goodreads Giveaway

Flames of Quiet Light: Thirteen Tiny Tales of Love and Loss.

Includes fiction previously published online or in printed journals as well as two brand new tales: “The Divinity of Grass” and “Fifth Grade.”

There used to be a fence here, around this domicile husk. The children, two by two, were ushered through the gates. Small, bare feet hovered above the earth like ghosts, touching air and nothing else. It was the large hands of strangers that swung them over the steps, set them down on the cool tile floor of the orphanage lobby. The boy remembers that when it stormed the window shades would sway like paper arks, and all the caged animals on the curtains- two rabbits, two canaries, two cats, two dogs- would dissolve to whimpers and scratches, broken only by the sound of thunder or the creak of bedsprings in the dark room. The girl has no memory of fur or feathers. She would listen to the rain fall and pretend the lightning bolts were a carnival of cotton candy. Her numb fingers became paper cones for electric blue curls...
