I am proud to announce that State Of Horror: New Jersey is ready for your reading pleasure! This is a very eclectic array of tales by some mighty fine authors. Already, this super anthology is climbing the charts. Don't miss out! Get your copy. My short story Rudetown Road is included in the anthology. I tried some different things in the telling of my tale, and I'm pretty happy with the way it came out. I'm sure Jerry E. Benns, owner and Editor of Charon Coin Press was scratching his head with my styling, but we worked together and all is well.
Now for some more good news. All my royalties for my story will be going to St. Jude. I have a soft spot in my heart for children, and St. Jude does so much for young cancer patients. Also, and this is super great, Jerry E. Benns will match my royalties, dollar for dollar. What a guy! Thank you, Jerry!
So what are you waiting on? Grab a great book, read some super stories, and put smiles on the faces of some terrific children!

State of Horror is a unique anthology in that it collects 13 horror stories for each of the 50 states. Each state gets a book dedicated just to its own legends, folktales, hauntings, and general spookiness. The actual state plays a role, or is a character in the stories. The settings of the State of Horror stories are recognizable even to locals. All of the State of Horror authors take care to not only incorporate the state into their stories, but to create true horror stories to thrill readers of the horror genre.
Many of the State of Horror authors write an original tale of horror they have dreamt up and incorporated into a state. Other authors take local lore or a famous haunt and put their own creative spin on the story. Some authors even incorporate some history into their story and twist it until it terrifies even the hardiest horror lover.
State of Horror: New Jersey contains stories by Scott M. Goriscak, Frank J. Edler, Armand Rosamilia, Julianne Snow, C.I. Kemp, T. Fox Dunham, Christian Jensen, Eli Constant, Blaze McRob, Diane Arrelle, Margaret Colton, Nathanael Gass, and Tim Baker
Since State of Horror: New Jersey was previously released; within its re-launch, it features the six previously released stories along with seven brand new stories. The authors both new and old did a fantastic job of staying true to the horror genre with stories of the Jersey Devil, ghosts, and mystery under the boardwalk. In this book are authors who have published over 200 titles as well as authors with their very first published story. All of the stories are crafted to show the scarier side of New Jersey while also giving the readers a good sampling of the state.
