Prelude To A Scream - Episode 07

Episode 07 of Prelude To A Scream features my short story "Distractions" which originally appeared in the World Fantasy Con 2001 CD-Rom edited by Nancy Kilpatrick. The story was reprinted in my book ONE HAND SCREAMING in 2004.

"Distractions" tells the story of a frustrated writer's attempt to deal with distractions by taking the advice from a popular self-help book a little too far. After the story I talk a little bit about the genesis of the tale.

  • The Writing Show - wonderfully inspirational podcast for writers with years of great content. If, for some reason, you like the sound of my voice or hearing about my writing, there's a series of "Reality Show" episodes following me as I work on my novel A Canadian Werewolf In New York right here.
