Arbor Day Terror Tales! (April Fools!)

Arbor Day Terror Tales is on sale at Amazon now! (Seriously!)

Arbor Day Terror Tales is on sale at Amazon now! (Seriously!)

I am pleased to announce my newest title is now on sale through Kindle and Amazon.com! Arbor Day Terror Tales: Sinister Yarns of Woodland Woe features thirteen insidious stories all featuring arboreal evils that grew from the blackest soils and twisted roots of my macabre imagination!

Mankind has always loved his trees, but what happens when the trees say “no more!” This collection explores this and other terrifying questions about humanity’s shaky relationship with the masters of the Plant Kingdom. A wicked willow invades the swampy nightmares of a trio of befuddled fishermen. The ghost of a vengeful spruce plagues the agenda of a rebellious rabbi. A jilted bride, lost in America’s iconic Red Wood Forest, unearths more companionship than she could have ever bargained for and ends up smothered in the fiery autumn of her deepest regrets!

Arbor Day Terror Tales features the following fiendish fables:

Flowering Plants Without Pity
Trick or Tree
Willow Willow Won’t
The Rabbi and the Knothole
Bark to the Future
She Attempted to Get Down from the Tree but She Couldn’t Seem to
Oak Too Soon
The Redwoods’ Bride
The Clown in the Apple Orchard
The Vampire’s Garden Hose
The Cursed Tree-House Where Children Died
A Tree with Tons of Spiders in It
A Smaller Tree with Just One Really Big Spider

With branch shakingly spooky illustrations by real life paleobotonist Dr. James Molloy, these stories are creepier and crawlier than a troop of ravenous wood lice! Hunker down, dim the lights, and leaf through these sturdy tall tales. But don’t climb too high into the canopy of the unknown! That evergreen outside your window just could be plotting to trim your branches!

Arbor Day Terror Tales: Sinister Yarns of Woodland Woe is available for $2.99 on Kindle and $5.50 in paperback. But you can’t buy it because this is an April Fools joke post!

Go buy my other books though! :)

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Kevin M. Folliard has studied trees his entire life and dedicated every ounce of his free time to nurturing a supernatural psychic bond with the plant world. He alone is qualified to write about them, and anything else that you might read about plants from other so-called experts is a lie.

ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR: Paleobotonist Dr. James Molloy draws really cool comic books where trees probably exist somewhere in the background sometimes. You should buy his books too!

On sale NOW!

I’m pleased to announce that Black Bed Sheet Books’ Bumps in the Road anthology is now on sale through Amazon, in paperback and Kindle, featuring my scary story “Ink!”

“Roads have been around for centuries, allowing mankind a convenient path to arrive at their destination—be it a lengthy vacation getaway with family or merely to their own inviting home after an exhausting day at work. These roadway treks can bring with them a lifetime of memories. But not all memories are good. And some things are best left forgotten. Join our storytellers as they share the morbid, woeful, and disturbing outcomes of an otherwise normal commute, as we watch each of these unfortunate souls fall victim to their own little bumps in the road. A unique horror anthology.”

In my story “Ink,” a weary road-tripping divorcee struggles against the influence of two unsavory, black-eyed children who he encounters in the dead of night, just off the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

Bumps in the Road is a really cool collection with a wide variety of writers all putting their unique spins on the theme of roads and travel, so be sure to check it out!

Wax & Wane on sale NOW!

I’m pleased to announce that Nosetouch Press’s Wax & Wane: A Gathering of Witch Tales is now on sale through Amazon, in paperback and Kindle, featuring my scary story “Hour of the Owl!”

Wax & Wane: A Gathering of Witch Tales serves up 30 spellbinding stories of witches that are enchanting and terrifying, amusing and enticing. Classic or eclectic, fantastical or historical, these witch tales are a literary incantation to delight any fans of witches and witchcraft.”

In my story “Hour of the Owl,” Jean’s estranged son Wesley returns home to the family orchard with an unusual new bride named Ava. Ava is a slender, ageless woman with bird-like features and a nocturnal schedule. She quickly charms the men in Jean’s family and spends copious amounts of time performing strange rituals in the barn at night. Soon Jean begins to suffer nightmares about owls and a shadowy entity named Stryxus who seeks to claim her son. The story is about a mother’s unconditional love struggling against both the figurative and literal dark forces which have fractured her family.

When 12-year-old Jimmy Rourke travels to the Hydroverse, a watery universe nourished by streams of starlight, he becomes the Chimaera—a hero with the combined powers of the Animal Kingdom.

Jimmy befriends ambassadors of different species, discovers living breathing dinosaurs, battles enormous insects, and learns about animal science by mimicking the most incredible creatures on Earth. On his journey, Jimmy grapples with issues of trust, self-control, and problem-solving in a complex world that often misleads him.
