Ink Babes Press releases BLEEDING INK

Read my short story, “Club 27” in the freshly-released ebook anthology from Ink Babes Press, BLEEDING INK, available now at

My story, “Club 27,” deals with the concept that so many artists, from Robert Johnson to Amy Winehouse (in addition to a number of performance and visual artists) have died at the age of 27. It is not so much an explanation of the phenomena as it is an exploration.

In BLEEDING INK, editors Lisa Forget, Patricia Hollett and Tammy Crosby have compiled 60 stories from nearly 40 authors, (not to mention poetry) all touching on the paranormal, the supernatural, the dark and the twisted in one way or another.
