The Devil Gave Me a Gun now on sale

Posted in Books, From Keith with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 28, 2012 by keithlatch

The Devil Gave Me a Gun, by Steve Wands and Keith Latch is now available on Amazon.com as a Kindle download. Steve is a great writer and I’m very proud to be sharing a byline with him. We had a lot of fun writing this and I hope the reader will have just as much fun! It’s a great little ominous story and I think if you take a chance, you’ll really enjoy it.

Here’s the cover art:

And here’s a little about it:

Suicide. Sometimes, it’s the only way out. Sometimes, it’s only a trap.

The Devil works in mysterious ways. Just how mysterious, a young man finds out after doing the unthinkable.

Now, unsure if he’s blessed with a curse or cursed with a blessing, he exists between the living and the undead.

As the full power of darkness is realized in a simple inanimate object, he tries to make sense of the horror that is now his life…but evil has other plans.

 

 

So head on over to Amazon and download the sample, if you like it, pick it up. It’ll set you back less than a cup of coffee.

Horror Stories: A Macabre Collection by Steve Wands (A treasure of horror goodness)

Posted in From Keith, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on December 15, 2011 by keithlatch

I’m not much of a promoter, I’ll admit. Never had much interest in it actually. But I am a reader, and when I do stumble across something I really, really, really like, I want to tell people about it. So here goes:

There’s a very talented author by the name of Steve Wands, who has several outstanding titles available. For the moment: I want to talk about Horror Stories: A Macabre Collection, which by the way is free on Amazon.com at the moment and you can get it right HERE

Allow me to tell you a little about it…

{From the Amazon product page}

This macabre collection of horror stories features creatures from all walks of the genre. From fast-paced flash fiction tales of witches, weirdos, and demons to the longer stories of survival among the living dead and killer cars. If you like your horror in the vein of Tales From the Crypt and Creepshow, than look no further.

Stories include:

From The Page
Of Dust and Dirt
The Seed
The Beast
Old Flames Burn Just the Same
Shelter
Traveling Terrors
Tunnel Rats
Hell Comes for the Hurried
Kaleidoscope Eyes
Versions
TV Casualty
The Last Broadcast
The Car

I have a weakness for short stories. I enjoy collections and I absolutely love anthologies. I love movies Creepshow, both 1 and 2 and while I’ve looked there haven’t been all that many great short story collections out there that can compete with movies like that. Sure, I loved Night Shift and Skeleton Crew by Stephen King but after you’ve read those, looking for others is well…difficult. Horror Stories, from the start is an engaging and macabre read. It contains some short and flash fiction that go a long way into saying that storytelling is not dead. It’s creepy, it’s despicable and it’s a heck of a lot of fun. My personal favorites are Shelter,
Tunnel Rats,TV Casualty and The Car, but they are all great. It’s a literal treasure trove of good stories and I highly recommend it for something to take your mind off the horrors of the real world and delve into the darkness of fiction for a while.

So…

…what are you waiting for???

Get Horror Stories: A Macabre Collection right freaking now! And go now while it’s free!

…but between you and I, it’s well worth paying for

The Radioactive Pen, Episode 1

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 30, 2010 by keithlatch

Finally, here it is. Episode 1 of the Radioactive Pen is live, and boy, isn’t it a doozy! I have an interview with Desmond Reddick of the Dread Media Podcast, an amazing independent writer, that really gets to the meat of developing and honing your craft over time. We also discuss some interesting things about the changing face of publishing, but I won’t spoil it here. Also, advice from a well-established writer and some publishing news. Be forewarned, however, the changing of the seasons really did my voice in and while Des comes across great, I sound,  at times like a wheezing, stopped-up, sick-o. My deepest apologies, but I had to post this great interview.
