Bleeding Ink Author Spotlight – Rick McQuiston

Welcome Dark Fiction Enthusiasts to the Author Spotlight

Rick McQuiston is a forty-four year-old who has been writing for twenty years. He’s had almost 300 publications so far, and has written three novels, six anthology books, and one book of novellas. He also reads at libraries and schools, as well as book shows and author forums.

Bleeding Ink Tale: Something Into Nothing

Ink Babes: Rick, welcome to the author Spotlight. Please tell us about yourself.

RM: I live in Warren, Michigan with my wife of 23 years and my two children. I work for a management/development company during the day and strive to write the perfect horror story during the night.  Aside from my passion for anything horror-related I also enjoy playing drums, watching movies (horror of course), and spending time with my family (my kitten and puppy included).

Ink Babes: Sounds like a well-rounded life. That’s great!  Tell us, what sparked the idea for your Bleeding Ink tale?

RM: I got the idea for “Something into Nothing” from an unusual experience I had as a kid (I tend to tap into past times in my life for inspiration). I was exploring an old abandoned house when, to this day, I could have sworn I saw a “spot” in one of the rooms that didn’t look quite right. It was on a wall, and when I moved it took on an unnatural look. Creeped me out.

Ink Babes: Wow! Goose flesh just rose on our arms! An experience like that can really have an effect on a young person. Is there anything else that frightens you?

RM:  Spiders and heights.

Ink Babes: Ah-ha! Spiders are up there in the Bleeding Ink fear-factor ratings!  Tell us Rick, how did your interest in writing originate?

RM: My interest in writing probably originated from my love of movies. I used to watch old horror films and study how they were structured and paced. “Jaws” and “Alien” were pivotal in steering me toward horror, and from there I just went crazy with it.

Ink Babes:  With all the writing you do, do you ever experience writer’s block?  How do you work through it?

RM: I get writer’s block on occasion like everyone else. What I do when it hits is turn on the engine and gun it, working through any potential blockades with a sledgehammer, not stopping until I’m satisfied with my work. Sometimes it might turn out different than what I originally had in mind, but as long as it’s quality I don’t mind.

Ink Babes:  And what are you working on now?

RM: Currently, I’m quite busy. I tend to be prolific. While waiting for my editor to finish my third novel, I’m getting my fourth onto the computer (I write everything long-hand), and even started the rough draft of my fifth. I’m also preparing for some upcoming craft shows and horror conventions, working on a “Playground” anthology, and continue to churn out numerous short stories, with an odd novella here and there.

Ink Babes: Well, thank you so much Rick, for taking time out of your hectic schedule to step into the spotlight! We love to get to know our contributing authors.

Thank you to all our Bleeding Inkers who followed our summer spotlight series!

Bleeding Ink Author Spotlight – Robert Lee Frazier

Welcome Devourers of Decadent Dark Tales to the Author Spotlight

Robert Lee Frazier has been writing stories and poems for over ten years. He is currently working on a novel and a set of weird sketches based on paintings by Hieronymus Bosch. Frazier has never boasted graduating from a distinguished art school. Follow his authorial tribulations on his blog www.robertleefrazier.com

Bleeding Ink Tale – Rob Pernell’s Tale

Ink Babes: Welcome to the spotlight, Robert. Please tell us a little bit about yourself.

RLF: I’m an author of numerous published short stories, poems, and even an odd essay. When not immersed in the world of writing (i.e. my day job) I’m a baker by profession. You can keep up with my authorial daring-do at www.robertleefrazier.com
 
Ink Babes: What sparked the idea for your Bleeding Ink tale?
RLF: This tale is part of an unpublished story-collection titled Strange Season. After I created the character Rob Pernell, I’d been looking for an opportunity to tell his back-story.
 
Ink Babes: Rob Pernell gets quite a fright in his dark tale. We’re wondering if you have a fear of anything unusual?
RLF: I’m not sure it’s unusual, but all my life I’ve had a dread fear of burning to death in a fire. Perhaps, this is why I got rid of my antagonists the way I did?
 
Ink Babes:  Haha! Clever! Robert, tell us, what are you reading at the moment?
RLF: I am reading Christopher Moore’s book Sacre Bleu. He is one of my all-time favorite authors. I highly recommend this, and all of his other works. He is one of the few authors who can make me laugh out-loud while reading.
 
Ink Babes: Love those LOL moments! What are you working on now?
RLF: I’m working on a strange short story titled Lordess of the Small Things. It combines the reunion of a woman with tiny creatures from her childhood, and the controversial Hill Top Mining Method. I don’t know if it will change attitudes concerning this destructive mining practice but, I hope it makes readers stop and think.
 
Ink Babes: If you could have dinner with one person, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
RLF: Ray Bradbury. His life and work was such an inspiration to me. He is dearly missed.
 
Ink Babes: Yes, missed by many. Thank you so much for stepping into the spotlight, Robert. Before we say au revoir, is there anything that you would like to say to our Bleeding Ink readers?
RLF: Yes, buy this anthology. The reading community needs to support publishing ventures like Bleeding Ink.

Bleeding Ink Author Spotlight – Sally A. Wolf

Welcome Children of the Night to the Author Spotlight

Sally A. Wolf believes that a writer should write always, and she always has. Passionate about the written word, she reads voraciously, blogs, and wrote her first dark story at 10 years old. Happily married, Sally is the mother of four children who beg her to tell them bedtime stories of her own creation.

Bleeding Ink Tales: The Devil’s Daughter & I Am A…

Ink Babes: Welcome Sally, to the Author Spotlight. Let’s begin with you telling us a little bit about yourself.

SW: I believe that a writer should write always, and I always have. I am passionate about the written word, I read voraciously, blog, and wrote my first story at 10 years old. Happily married, I am the mother of four children who love to hear me tell them bedtime stories of my own creation.

Ink Babes: What a wonderfully lucky audience!  What sparked the ideas for your Bleeding Ink tales?

SW: Both of my tales were flash fiction entries at http://forum.devinwrites.com/ “I am a…” was created for the October prompt “Begin a story with this line: No one believed the curse was real”.  “The Devil’s Daughter” was created for the November contest “Write a story about a dark angel”.

Ink Babes: Love, love, love prompts! They give us a creative jolt!  Tell us Sally, do you have a fear of anything unusual?
SW: For the most part I am not afraid of anything, except maybe driving, but I do have a slight fear of large grasshoppers. My brothers dumped a whole jar of them on my head when I was little and ever since I have been a little bit wary of them.

Ink Babes: And how did your interest in writing originate?
SW: When I was a little girl I was abused by my stepmother and her son. To escape this pain I read whatever I could. As I grew older I realized that the books are what kept me alive all of those years. I wanted to give that salvation to someone else so I started writing. This gave me an outlet for all of my bottled up emotions and I was free for the first time in my life.

Ink Babes:  The power of the written word never held more significance… We’re sorry to hear about your past but truly inspired by your honesty and strength.

What are you working on now?
SW: Right now I am working on the sixth installment of my Detective Katherine Pig Series. Set to be released by the end of this year.

Ink Babes: A sixth installment? Congratulations! We wonder, with such success, have you ever hated something you wrote but everyone else loved?

SW: Funny you should ask, both of my entries for this very anthology were ones I was not sure of or even thought were any good.

Ink Babes: We Ink Babes were on the look-out for unique tales. We loved both of yours.

Thank you so much for sharing with us today, Sally. Before we turn off the spotlight, is there anything that you would like to say to our Bleeding Ink readers?

SW: Thank you for taking the time to broaden your mind as a reader and fill it with these wonderful stories written by talented writers.

Bleeding Ink Author Spotlight – Ron Koppelberger

Welcome Lovers of the Dark to the Bleeding Ink Author Spotlight

Bleeding Ink Tales: A Vain Bit of Beauty and The Evil Eye

Ron Koppelberger is a poet, a short story writer and an artist. He has written 103 books of poetry over the past several years and 18 novels. He has been published in England, Australia, Canada, Japan, India, Mauritius, Italy, France, Germany, China, Spain and Thailand. He has been published in The Stray Branch, The Fringe, Write On!!! (Poetry Magazette) Static Movement, Necrology Shorts and Record Magazine.

Ink Babes: Welcome to the Author Spotlight, Ron. Tell us about yourself.

RK: I am a writer, a poet and an artist;  I also enjoy making music.  I have published hundreds of stories and poems as well as 170 piecces of artwork.  I enjoy making music in my spare time,  a passion for me generally.  I recently published five books with amazon.com and I am currently working on another anthology for Static Movement.  I love to reach new audiences,  I have twelve websites I do that with.
 
Ink Babes: Incredible!!!  You have two tales published in Bleeding Ink. What sparked the ideas for them?

RK: The story “A Vain Bit of Beauty”  was inspired by the old detective shows of the fifties and forties.  I thought of Greta Garbo,or Kathrine Hepburn maybe even a touch of Betty Davis when I wrote this (A perfect part for Betty).

Ink Babes: Formidable women, for sure. In Evil Eye, Precious is formidable in her own right,  messing around with some scary stuff (we won’t say what – you’ll have to read it to find out). How about you, Ron, anything give you a fright?

 
RK: I’ve always been afraid of spiders……all spiders!!!
 

Ink Babes: Spiders…hmm…that seems to be a trend among our dark fiction writers. Definitely a topic for a future discussion!  So, what are you working on now? 

RK: Currently, I am working on an anthology for Static Movement called Wolf Craft.  It concerns the wolf, lycanthropy in all of its forms.  This is my first anthology with Static but I have written stories for 100 or so of their anthologies.  I am currently accepting submissions for Wolf Craft.
 
Ink Babes: And when you write, do you work with an outline? 

RK: Usually I wake up at one or two in the morning…..the dead of night and just start writing.  I rarely use an outline.
 
Ink Babes: What do you do when you are not writing? 

RK: I like to do artwork.

Thank you for stepping into the spotlight today, Ron.

Bleeding Ink Author Spotlight – Martin Cohen

Welcome those who love dark poetry to the Bleeding Ink Author Spotlight

Martin Cohen is a retired computer programmer who loves dancing, writing poetry, and solving math problems. He is not sure where this poem came from, but he does not want to visit there too often.

Bleeding Ink Tale: Drizzle (a Haiku)

Ink Babes: Welcome to the Author Spotlight, Martin. We’re thrilled to have you visit with us today. Please,  tell us a little bit about yourself.

MC: As I said, like most of you, I am a retired computer programmer who loves dancing (swing, latin, foxtrot, others), writing poems, and solving math problems.

Ink Babes: Don’t know about those math problems – the word conundrum comes to mind.  However, we’ve been known to cut a rug or two! LOL!  Martin, what sparked the idea for your Bleeding Ink poem?

MC: Don’t really know. I do carry a knife, and have never used it for anything in the least bit violent. I somehow got the idea for the last line and decided to make it a haiku. The poem does make me feel uncomfortable – I usually write light verse.

Ink Babes: Uncomfortable, you say? Begs the question: What do you fear?

MC: I don’t like horror films. I love roller coasters.

Ink Babes: You thrill-seeker, you!  What do you do when you are not writing?

MC: I am very good at nothinging.

Ink Babes: Is that so? Hmm…we wonder what you enjoy writing?

MC: I like to write light verse with a twist. Here are two short examples:

1. A haiku.

The modern haiku
Is no longer restricted
Five seven five – haa!

2.  Title: “For extra credit, diagram this sentence”

If I only knew what I thought I knew when I thought I knew what I knew,

and if I only was what I thought I was when I thought I was what I was,

and if I only had what I thought I had when I thought I had what I had,

then maybe I’d be what I thought I was when thought I knew what I had.

Not quite suitable for your anthology.

Ink Babes: That’s okay, we’ll forgive you…this time. When you write do you work with an outline?

MC: I just write. I often have no idea where a poem is going. I write a lot with rhyme and meter. The first line just appears and determines the meter, the next few lines determine the rhyme scheme, and the poem eventually ends.

Ink Babes: And what is your writing routine? Do you do anything strange or quirky?
 
MC: I keep my phone (A Droid 2 with physical keyboard) beside me at night. When am idea occurs, I open it up and start keying it in. I get a lot of my ideas about 2AM.

Ink Babes: Very cool! It’s going on our list of “gotta have’s” Is there anything that you would like to say to our Bleeding Ink readers?

MC:  Don’t get caught.

Ink Babes: LOL! Thanks for stepping into the Spotlight, Martin.  In the words of a funny poet we know, you were Fifty Shades of Polka-Dot!

Post a Haiku, or other form of poetry,  in the comments section to win a copy of Bleeding Ink – A Collection of Dark Tales

Bleeding Ink Author Spotlight – Christian Larsen

 
Welcome Seekers of Stories Strangely True to the Bleeding Ink Author Spotlight
 

Christian A. Larsen’s fiction appears in What Fears Become (Imajin Books), Sparks: Exciting New Fantasy from Today’s Brightest Stars (Earthbound Fiction), and A Feast of Frights (The Horror Zine Books). He lives with his wife and two sons in the fictional town of Northport, Illinois.

Bleeding Ink Tale – Club 27
 

Ink Babes: Welcome to the Author Spotlight, Christian.  Would you tell us about yourself.

 
CL: I’ve been writing, more or less, since I was 10, but didn’t get into writing regularly until about four or five years ago. I started out writing Twilight Zone-style science fiction, and have branched out into straight horror as well. I have also worked as a high school English teacher, a rock radio host, a newspaper reporter, and a printer’s devil.
 
Ink Babes: My! What an interesting life you’ve led.  Printer’s devil? Sounds almost as dangerous as being a teacher!  What sparked the idea for your Bleeding Ink tale?
 
CL: I wrote “Club 27” shortly after Amy Winehouse died. I’d heard a lot about the coincidences of so many famous entertainers, musicians in particular, dying at age 27, but never saw a story written about it. I don’t think I explain its significance much, but the story does explore its significance, and what it means to be in the club from some of its own members’ perspectives.

Ink Babes: Your story is unique. We felt like participants wending our way through the club, brushing shoulders with the dead and famous. A sad and eerie feeling, really. How about you?  Is there anything that seriously creeps you out?

CL:  It seems like horror writers are either scared of everything or nothing. I fall somewhere in the middle. I saw RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD when I was eleven, and zombies still scare the hell out of me. And JAWS ruined the ocean for me forever. In fact, I’m even afraid of larger fresh water fish.
 
Ink Babes: No sh–!
 
CL: What if a sturgeon or a muskie wanted to take a chunk out of me? What could I do to stop it? Not a whole helluva lot.
 
Ink Babes:   We can imagine how those fears would inspire some interesting tales.  How did your interest in writing originate?
CL:  My interest in writing originated when I read The Hobbit in 4th grade. I imagine its like the kid who picked up the guitar for the first time after seeing Eddie Van Halen shred out a solo. You see someone else do it, and you just KNOW you have to do the same thing, at least categorically. The truly gifted people are the ones who don’t copy, but originate.
 
Ink Babes: Do you work with an outline when you’re creating, or just write?
CL:  When I write, it is almost always organically. That is to say, I don’t plan much out ahead of time. I have a vague sense of where the story is going to go, but I let my characters dictate the pace and direction. If I really don’t like what they’ve done, I can always go back and change it, but the funny thing about my characters is, they’re usually smarter than I am.
 
Ink Babes: LOL! So, what are you working on now?
CL: Right now, I am doing revisions on my first serious novel, LOSING TOUCH, about a man who starts to lose his tangibility. Beta notes are an extremely valuable tool, and I am so thankful for the people who read and commented on the first draft.
 
Ink Babes: Long live Beta readers!!  Thanks so much for joining us. It was a pleasure hanging out with you today.

Bleeding Ink Tale – A Cat in Hell’s Chance
 
 
Ink Babes: Welcome to the Bleeding Ink Author Spotlight, Nathan.  Please, tell us a little about yourself.
 
NR:  I’m thirty four years old (God that happened quick). I started writing when I was six years old. I wrote a novel when I was twelve, then ducked out for eighteen years.
 
Ink Babes: What??
 
NR: I know.  But, I started writing poetry again two years ago, and have been published in thirty different e-zines and publications since. Two anthologies I’m featured in are in the British Library, and I now mainly write novellas. My first novel entitled ‘Infatuation’ will be available on Amazon in October of this year (2012.)
 
Ink Babes:  Impressive!  By the way, we’ll have to do another interview to find out what you were up to for those 18 years.  So, what sparked the idea for your Bleeding Ink tale?
 
NR:  My cat, plain and simple. He was old, and nearing the end of his life. It made me very sad. At eighteen he had caught a mouse that came into my kitchen, whilst the back door to the garden had been left open. I was very proud of him. I started to wonder, what if the mouse returned to wreak vengeance? ‘A Cat in Hell’s Chance’ was born. Miss you Snarf, still sore about that one.
 
Ink Babes: R.I.P Snarf.  Grief, love, hate, there is a vast palette of emotions that inspire great stories. Fear being one that sparks many a  dark tale. What is your darkest fear?
 
NR:  The same as Salvador Dali – death. I can’t stand it, am unable to reason it. I don’t fear my own, just the death of those I love.
 
Ink Babes: Nathan, who is your favorite author?
NR:  My favourite horror author is Clive Barker.
 
Ink Babes: Why is he your fav?
NR: Because, he’s unafraid to write what he sees in his mind, and to challenge convention by doing so. He also appears to have artistic integrity.
 
Ink Babes: What are you working on now?
NR:  I’ve just finished and submitted a piece for the Salvador Dali anthology ‘Dalliances’ to Obsolescence Press (Hope they accept.) I am currently working on the last pages of my first novel, a paranormal romance set in the near future entitled ‘Infatuation’ (as mentioned above.)
 
Ink Babes: Thank you for standing center stage for today’s Author Spotlight, Nathan. We’ll be looking out for “Infatuation”…sounds intriguing.

Bleeding Ink Author Spotlight – Michael C. Keith

Welcome to our Bleeding Ink Author Spotlight Summer Blog Series, where authors from Bleeding Ink – A Collection of Dark Tales, will be featured throughout the summer.

Our first featured author:

Michael C. Keith is the author of three story collections, an acclaimed memoir, and two-dozen non-fiction books. He is a professor of communication at Boston College and a noted scholar in media studies.

Bleeding Ink Tale:   A Perfect Match

Ink Babes:  Michael, welcome to the  Bleeding Ink Author Spotlight. Why don’t you start off by telling us a little bit about yourself…

MCK:  I’m a driven person, and fortunately in the last handful of years, I’ve been driven to write stories. My website will tell you more about me (although it is about to be updated). www.michaelckeith.com

Ink Babes:  We’ll be sure to check out all the delicious details, Michael.  What drove you to write your Bleeding Ink tale? What sparked the idea?

MCK:  Never quite sure what sparks a tale. Almost anything can. My spark is always inspired by a desire to create something.

Ink Babes: Well, you’ve certainly created a thought-provoking tale in “A Perfect Match”.  We love it.  How did your interest in writing originate?

MCK: I was told by my mother that I wrote a story about a cowboy when I was in second grade. It’s been downhill since then.

Ink Babes: LOL! We’re happy the slippery slope slid you our way!  You know, working on this collection of dark tales, we’ve often wondered what scares the living daylights out of our readers and authors. Do you have a fear of anything… unusual?

MCK: Dark places on a stormy night after reading or watching something scary.

Ink Babes:  Ooh, dark places, stormy nights.  Inspiration!   What are you working on now?

MCK: I try to write a story every ten days or so. Just finished a piece of flash fiction that came to me while in Paris a month ago.

Ink Babes: Ah, Paris…the city of lights, and love, and fine cuisine! It’s a scrumptious segue for our next question:  If you could have dinner with one person, dead or alive, who would it be and why?

MCK: Shakespeare for obvious reasons.

Ink Babes: Of course!  Now, as a writer, who do you feel supported you most?

MCK: Family has been right there all along.

Ink Babes: You gotta love family!

Thank you so much for being the first author to step into our Bleeding Ink Spotlight, Michael. Before we dim the bright lights for today, is there anything you’d like to say to our readers?

MCK: Support the publication. It isn’t easy to do what the Ink Babes have done.

And now, as promised… a CONTEST!!

In light of the scorching hot weather, we Ink Babes have put away our diabolical plans and opted to go easy on you…this time.

Forever My Valentine

Here’s a little dark flash fiction in honour of Valentine’s Day. Yes, of course it’s a little twisted, but then would you expect anything else from us at Bleeding Ink?

A quarter mile off the main road, where only hunters ventured to wander, Gage Sanders led a group of officers through the forest searching for the missing woman. Gage was known as the best tracker in the area and knew these woods like he knew his home. He’d helped the police on more than one occasion. Walking ahead and alone, he didn’t talk. He preferred it that way. The officers following him discussed what could have happened to the woman and observed his tracking skills. He zigzagged through the bushes, doing his job, leading, and listening.

Gage stopped at the edge of a small clearing and put his hand up. The officers looked beyond Gage to a large tree where a woman hung from a branch ten feet high. 

Her shredded shirt was twisted tight and caught in the rope that hung around her neck knotted at the back, exposing plenty of bare skin. Captain Andrews pointed to the scratches and dirt on her back and the bruises on her arms and legs. Gage walked the perimeter. Captain Andrews watched him studiously.

Blood had dripped down her legs and pooled onto the ground, but most of it had dried now. As Gage and Andrews walked around in front of her, Gage stared at the hole in her chest where her heart had been. He’d never been squeamish, having gutted deer, bear and moose most of his life. He’d seen some gory things, this didn’t make him flinch. Andrews covered his mouth and watched the absence of reaction in Gage.

Gage squatted down, took off his green John Deere cap, scratched his bald head, and surveyed the area with narrowed eyes, looking around microscopically for clues.

Captain Andrews observed the tracker. “Do you see something Gage?”

“In the bushes.” Gage pointed. “Tracks.”

“I don’t see anything…” Captain Andrews eyes darted to the bushes, back to Gage, then back to the bushes again.  He walked over and parted the branches with his gloved hands.

On the ground was a half-eaten heart, taken from the woman still hanging from the tree. A hunting knife stuck out of what was left of the heart and held a note in place. He tipped his head sideways to read the note, careful not to disturb the evidence. ‘A piece of your heart will always be mine. If I can’t have you no one will.’ Andrews stared intently at the bloodied knife.

He stood up then glanced at Gage and the other officers. “I know who did it, and now I know why.”

Gage put his cap back on, and stood. “Are we done here?”

“Just about,” Captain Andrews answered. “Handcuff him.” He nodded toward Gage prompting the other officers to grab the tracker.

“When did you know?” Gage asked, no emotion in his dead eyes.

“There were no tracks into the bushes. Only you knew what was there. You wanted us to find this.”

“I loved her.”

“A little too much, I’d say,” Andrews answered. “Read him his rights,” he said through gritted teeth.

 

Here at Bleeding Ink Anthology, we love dark tales. The sinister, the wicked, the morbid, the supernatural, and anything that makes you wonder how or why this story happened, and makes you think about a story long after reading it.

If you have a dark story, flash fiction, or poem send it to us. We’d love to read it and consider it for our anthology.

May the dark muses continue to inspire you and bless you with creative thoughts.

Ever Yours,

The Ink Babes
