A Week of Charity: The Writing For Charity Conference and FULL DARK: An Anthology for Our Veterans!

It's going to be a busy week! A charitable week. And a week of ... maybe too much sugar. Maybe you'll be interested in a little reading to offset the Halloween treats? Just in time, a new anthology has released today with 11 twisted tales to read while waiting on visitors who will knock for your candy. You'll also find a story of mine inside!

Here's a little teaser to get you started ...
Full Dark is a collection of eleven short works with impressive depth and range. Twisted tales of ghosts, villains, and the paranormal await you—mystery, heinous fantasy, and pure suspense. Acclaimed and award-winning authors as well as a few talented newcomers have joined forces to be your guide. Venture into the dark if you dare.

Just A Matter Of Time by Loni Townsend
Forerunner by David Powers King
Taking Care Of You by Carrie Butler
The Apartment by Lisa Buie-Collard
The Caricature by Nick Wilford
Shifting Sands by Elizabeth Seckman
Shadows Falling On Rainbows by Celeste Holloway
Meringue, Murder or Marzipan by Tonja Drecker
Haunted Lake by Michelle Athy
Soul Coin by Laura Rich
Retribution by Melissa Maygrove

FULL DARK is a benefit anthology. 100% of proceeds will be donated to the Gary Sinise Foundation, an organization that does many wonderful things for our country's active military, its veterans, and countless first responders who sacrifice so much to keep us safe.

Then, this Saturday, I will once again join an awesome group of writers for the 11th annual Writing for Charity conference. Hope to meet lots of budding authors and share my work and knowledge for a good cause. The anthology is full of great stories, a great addition for those who are seeking new dark tales for All Hallows Eve. I wish you the best, and a safe Halloween. Be careful out there, my friends!

I'm David, and break me off a piece of that Kit Kat bar ...
