There are a lot of great ideas hidden in the simplest concepts. Free association exercised help. Watching, reading what you love helps, and think of ways you might take a similar premise of something you like and make it your own.

Scares That Care – A Guest Blog Takeover by Jay Wilburn

I may

Beneath Ash and Bone by D. Alexander Ward
"A historical murder mystery with a supernatural twist. The book is set in the 1860's but could easily be set in today's environment. An isolated country mansion in the middle of a snow storm. The story was really interesting. I loved the setting. The" Read more of this review »

“Despite my ghoulish reputation, I really have the heart of a small boy. I keep it in a jar on my desk.”
