The reviews are coming in...

So far, not bad!

"Seriously, what a phenomenal second book! Everything that was so delightfully dark about The Last Sacrifice, James just wraps those thorny vines tighter around the plot. He proceeds to deepen it to a gripping degree throwing in mindbogglingly twisted horror elements."--Sachin Dev, Smorgasbord Fantasia

"I was quite irritated at the end of this book.  Note I said the end of the book, not the ending.  The ending was great.  I was irritated because I was at the end and there was no more book to read.  I wanted to keep reading.  I was irritated that I couldn’t and will have to wait for probably a year before the next book in the series comes out." -- Keith West, Adventures Fantastic

"Moore is clearly a talented story-teller. The action and characters here are throwbacks to Robert E. Howard and Fritz Leiber and the epic-ness of the story is not unlike Tolkien.  It’s all-around excitement."-- Dan, Looking For A Good Read

"And, again, Moore proves he knows how to end a book. I was nervous that this book would end and I'd be disappointed because I didn't have the answers I was looking for. I still don't have the answers, but at the end of Fallen Gods my mood wasn't one of frustration but rather "I am so ready for the next book!" Seriously, the next one is promising to be glorious. If the world is actually going to end, it ain't going down without a fight and I want to read that fight!" -- Rachel Noel, Purple Owl Reviews

I am pleased!  Thanks for the kind words, folks!

So I have received my contributor copies of BLOODSTAINED WONDERLAND, written by yours truly and Christopher Golden, which is a direct sequel to BLOODSTAINED OZ. I'm goin to give one copy away to someone who has contributed at least $25.00 to the Gofundme for THE TWISTED BOOK OF SHADOWS anthology.

That said, its one copy. There are only 500 copies available at the EARTHLING PUBLICATIONS SITE. If you are interested, I wouldn't wait too long, The first book sold out in 48 hours.

The Twisted Book of Shadows

Dear friends,
In the spirit of the New Year, and now that the chaos of the holiday season is over, we begin again to march toward our goal. The submission window is the month of February, so we're going to try our damnedest to reach **our fundraising goal** by the end of January, and we need your help!
If you've ever loved a creepy tale of any kind, we'd appreciate your donation AND any effort to spread the word. The Twisted Book of Shadows is our passion project, a true labor of love not just for James A. MooreJohn M. McIlveen and me, but for our entire editorial committee. We're dedicated to creating an anthology market that will pay professional rates and royalties without the need for marquee slots, invitation-only percentages, etc. Every spot on the table of contents will be filled by a story chosen through blind submissions. It's a level playing field for any writer interested in horror stories. Submissions will be reviewed by Jim, John, and myself, as well as the entire Editorial Committee: Linda D AddisonNadia BulkinRachel Autumn Deeringg, Lamar GilesGabino IglesiasBilly MartinKL PereiraLee Thomas, and we actively encourage submissions by diverse voices. Horror stories aren't the province of any one community of people, and we want YOURS, the one only you can write!
I'll shut up now, but not before saying we're just about halfway to our fundraising goal. We need your help to create what we hope will be one for the ages. Please donate what you can, and please SHARE!!
