My Writing Process Blog Tour

The Road to Nowhere...

My Writing Process

JosephAPinto_HeadShot_LargeI was nominated for the ‘My Writing Process Blog Tour’ by Joseph Pinto. First, thank you Joe for nominating me and offering the world a peek into the damaged organ I call a brain. Joe is a wonderful writer that is a partner in the writing group I belong to, Pen of the Damned, as well as an extremely talented and sundried writer in his own right. I’ve been working with Joe for the better part of two years now, and I’ve yet to see him try to tackle a voice or topic that he couldn’t adapt to and crush! His primary writing passion is horror, and he cranks out some wickedly awesome pieces that I have to say make me grin from ear to ear with joy! I love great horror, and even more so, I love great horror that is off…

The Aberrant Mind of a Laughing Ken MacGregor

Our Darkest Fears

KenMacGregorKen MacGregor has an aberrant mind.  There, I said it.  He’s also a superb author who laughs at fear.  Ken has stopped by to share a little with you about how fear and laughing go together like peanut butter and jelly.  This tie between the two runs very deep in his work and he does it well.  So, without further delay…

Ken MacGregor.

Laughing all the Way to the Grave

Ken MacGregor

Some things are universally shared, no matter who or where in the world you might be: love; anger; laughter; fear. There are others, I’m sure, but I want to focus on laughter and fear.

As children, we laugh almost from day one, and though it typically wanes as we grow older, I think most of us laugh throughout our lives. I’m planning to follow the Viking tradition and die with a joke on my lips. If I were…

Blog Tour: An Aberrant Mind

Life's Unfiltered Ramblings

AnAberrantMind_KenMacGregor_FrontCoverPromoAn Aberrant Mind

By Ken MacGregor

ABERRANT is defined as unusual, abnormal or different. The stories in this book not only differ from most of what you read, but also wildly from each other. A retired school teacher takes on an elder god and his minion; a werewolf picks fights with sea creatures; a neighbor’s lawn may be eating people. Twenty-two stories: scary, funny, weird and different.

In these pages, you will find darkness and fear, revulsion and terror. Mixed with it, however is quite a bit of humor. Sometimes both happen at the same time. So, open it up, join Jim as he fights off zombies with a potato cannon; witness the bloodbath reunion of the first man and his homicidal son; enjoy the monsters, the demons and the deranged.

A word of warning, though: you may never eat a bagel with lox again.
