Shanta Claus

December 9, 2009 at 12:45 (1)

I have uploaded my seasonal short story about Shanta Claus to my web site, so if you want a warm, freaky, demonic chuckle this Christmas, you know where to go!! I’ve made a few changes to the story, as I usually do every year, and this time round I’ve added a new chapter set on the world of Makhras, which is the setting for my upcoming book, The Thin Executioner. So if you want an early, sneak peek at some of the characters of that book, here’s your chance!!! To access the link for Shanta Claus, CLICK HERE.

    Thank you for posting it! I’ve been checking the link since December 1st! When I read it, I laughed so hard that I woke up my poor dog (and possible the neighbor’s dog!). 🙂 I was having not too great a day, but after I read Shanta Claus my day became a lot better!
