"Hello, Danny...Come and play with us. Come and play wirh us! Forever.  Forever. And ever...."  Grady Twins, The Shining

Hello All!!

I am excited to announce MY new venture — I’ve gathered over a dozen horror and crime fiction writers to write unique, short stories which will be issued in beautifully arranged magazine issues.

Every quarter, we are set to release indie-original fiction along with crafted poetry, author-drawn illustrations, picture & author biographies, and in-depth interviews with some of the authors.


Writing Staff: Derek Barton, Alyanna Poe, Chris Pelton, John N. McLean, Albert Moss, Andy Holberry, Jennifer Amato , Adam C Mitchell, Sam Synner, Annmarie McMullin, Jace Killjoy, Steve Cain and Thomas Stewart Copy Editor: Nesa Miller

Soon I will announce our Kickstarter campaign where for a minimal pledge, you will gain access to custom made metal bookmarkers, digital/softcover issues, an exciting Zoom Halloween Party with the Magazine Contributors, t-shirts, bonus story material, and even my Elude Series on Audible!

I will keep you all in the loop on any upcoming details or updates. With success, I hope to extend this project into the following year, maybe going bi-monthly with the issues! And of course, if I’m able to I would love to create the same kind of magazine but for Fantasy & Sci-Fi stories! Time will tell!!

Also wanted to let you know that I have revised my 2021 12 Months of Hell & Horror Journal to an every day journal/planner that also has my six original horror stories and awe-inspiring illustrations by my father T. D. Barton!! It has been reformatted to have 180 journal pages/30 bulleted task planner pages. Also will have an amazing new cover and title!! When the new version is out for release, I'll be sure to announce it here and on the website!

And... there's more (ha! Sounds like an infomercial!)
The Hidden Within has been submitted to ACX (Audible) and the audiobook version done by the great Ashley Ulery (who did the astounding Evade Series for me) should be authorized for sale at the end of October!!!!

Thank you all again for your support & interests! Get ready for a chilling year ahead!!
