Below is a quote from Sue Mydliak:


Sue Mydliak is a multi-tasker. Not only is she a great author, but she is a wonderful artist as well. I have included a special section below with some of her fantastic book covers. She is the Artistic Director for Visionary Press Cooperative. I enjoy her art work so much that she will be doing many book covers for me ( no plug for my work ).

Getting back to her writing: I did a final set of edits for her great novel Birthright, and assisted on the edits for Tortured Minds. The best way for me to describe Birthright would be to steal Wendy Howard's words and call her novel chick-lit horror. Maybe it is, but I'm not a chick and I love it. Tortured Minds are thirteen tales of all over the place horror, which is perfect for an anthology because you certainly don't get bored with redundant tales. Anything but. Sue's sequel to Birthright is completed and in the editing stages now. It is called The Legacy and promises to be scrumptious fare for a horror reader's appetite. If I'm lucky, I'll get to help out with the edits. Oh yeah, baby!

Sue also has another collection of short stories coming up called Southern Shorts. I have read these tales and they are great.

So, if we mix in one part great author, one part super artist, and too many parts to mention of a fantastic lady, we have Sue Mydliak!

Remember when you got your first doll, that loveable companion who saw you through the best and worst of days? Remember when Barbie was the doll version of who you wanted to be when you grew up? Be careful what you wish for…

In the world of Satan’s Toybox, nothing is ever what it seems, and being Barbie might not be all it’s cracked up to be. None of the dolls in these stories are the harmless comforting companions you may remember. From a haunted dollhouse to possessed porcelain dolls; you’ll find mischief, mayhem and bloody murders in these 18 tales.

You’ll find Mexican "Worry Dolls" who will make you worry, a lonely woman's cherished companions, a little girl's vehicle for revenge, a beautiful doll with a strange taste for blood, an adult movie star's look alike doll, the strange world of Barbie, an evil doll maker’s minions, a witch's influential dolls, a dollhouse with revolving occupants, living dolls who punish the criminal, a foreign clown doll intent on possession, a lonely child's one true friend, a demon doll who collects the souls of the innocent, and a doll possessed by none other than Jack the Ripper.

So go ahead, turn out the lights, cuddle up and prepare to be terrified. Just don’t take your eyes off the toybox…
Sue's story in this anthology received one of the best reviews. She beat me out! This is a tale in the great Twilight Zone style!

In the world of Satan’s Toybox, no toy is ever what it seems, and toy soldiers are no exception. Plastic army men, GI Joe and tin soldiers offer a place to work out your aggressions on an imaginary battlefield. But what if the battlefields are real and the toy soldiers have some aggression of their own?

In this volume, the second anthology in the Satan’s Toybox series, there are nineteen horrifying tales of epic battles, gruesome casualties and a heaping dose of revenge. From ancient Egyptian warriors protecting a tomb to Nutcrackers gone wrong, these are not the toys you remember.

So, “Aten’ hut! Fall in! Forward March!” Follow us into the Toybox and straight to Hell.
