Horror Novelette: "Raw Head"

I know I haven't updated this blog in a while, and it's running dangerously close to the trope of yet another author's blog that's gone into Neglect Land. I apologize to my followers and those who visit this blog, and I'll try to update more often from now on.

One thing I did forget to post about was...well...I wrote something. I wrote a horror novelette entitled Raw Head, which is available on Amazon for $0.99.

The synopsis:
A serial killer is brutally murdering children. Susie Hansen is nearing the end of her pregnancy, and is beginning to worry that the serial killer may be after her child. Worst yet, she thinks the serial killer may not even be human...
It's available on Kindle here.


  1. Belated congratulations, Ben!

    I enjoy writing within the horror genre myself. I had a few short stories available some years ago via my blog. The only reason I removed them was that I decided to include them within a horror collection I have on the back burner.

    I remember going over the KDP guidelines regarding acceptable publication and found that it was quite restrictive with regards what you can and can't make reference to. I would be interested to know if you had any issues regarding this or whether your work was screened?

    I imagine Amazon work on the policy that they only pull books if there are a number of complaints regarding the subject matter, etc.

    In any case, well done!

    1. I have some other horror WIP that I'll be publishing in the near future. I intend to put them all together into a printed collection, after everything is said and done.

      In regards to KDP guidelines, I've never had a submitted work rejected. Then again, I don't write erotica, and my violence has never been graphic to the point of being what gets called "gore porn." I really can't imagine anyone hating my work or objecting to the content unless they're an Anita Sarkeesian brand of feminist.

      Some of the stuff I've seen on Amazon makes me think they probably don't object to too much. Unless someone's offended everyone in the whole wide world, they're probably not going to pull the title.

    2. Pretty much what I thought regarding Amazon. It's basically just to cover themselves.

      Good luck with your current WIP and the eventual collection.
