Since I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather and suffering from being stuck in my writing, I decided to pull out an old story I wrote and rework it. This is the story that I used to help get accepted into the Creative Writing program for my Master’s in Fine Art, so it has some sentimental value to me. Funnily enough, though, it was written quite a while ago (4 years or so) and is the kind of story that would be embarrassing for people to read as is now. I realize that I’ve grown as a write so much in the last four years, and this story is proof. I’ve always loved the story, so I’d like to bring it up to a higher level and then release it into the wild for all to read.
Ghost in a Bottle has a Sam Raimi horror feel to it, at least that was my intention. The sort of Raimi horror where it’s messed up, but you aren’t entirely certain if it’s supposed to be scary or funny because it ends up being a bit of both. Think Drag Me to Hell, though the original Evil Dead also qualifies. It’s that’s kind of story.
With all of that said, I thought I would show off the cover. Yes, it’s that close to publication. So, I hope you enjoy the eye candy as you wait for it to be available for purchase.
