I’m happy to announce I’ve sold a new story, “Demon in Aisle 6,” to Nightmare Magazine. The story is about a high school kid who begins seeing a demon in the aisle of a mega mart where he works after his close friend dies. It’s my first story in Nighmare Magazine and my first horror story in a long while. Happy to have it appear there. According to managing editor Wendy Wagner, my story will appear there in the October issue, which is great because that’s also the same month that King of Shards debuts.
