The Final Booklet: 100 Horror Writing Prompts

10-horrorWell, that’s all she wrote. For now, anyway.

I’ve published my final creative writing prompts booklet: 100 Horror Writing Prompts (Fiction Ideas Vol. 10). Writing these booklets has been an incredibly fun and inspiring challenge. Not only have I learned more about these 10 fiction genres, I’ve also pushed myself creatively and have been deeply humbled by all those writers who I’ve helped along the way.

If you’re looking for a little spooky inspiration for the season (or the upcoming NaNoWriMo), grab a copy on Amazon. It’s FREE through Halloween (October 31).

You can read the full description below. Happy writing!

    I wanted to say thank you for sharing some of these prompt books. It’s been interesting looking them over when I nabbed a couple for free. It’s funny you mention NNWM because I’ve been flipping through a lot of prompt books on my Kindle Touch to see if it digs anything up in the dusty recesses of my brain. Thank you again!
