In late October of 2014, Ron Shaw, host of the The Ron Shaw Show on ArtistFirst Radio Network, asked our Annie if she would be willing to edit and publish a collection of horror and paranormal short stories written by himself and a group of other talented male authors, who have now become known as From Gents’ Pens – the male equivalent of our From Women’s Pens.
The result is an amazing compilation of short stories that cover all things guaranteed to send a shiver up and down your spine.
The volume’s blurb says it all:
Where can you find all the suspense, thrills, blood, and gore that reflect the dark underbelly of our world? Where do murder and voodoo curses stand alongside innocents and little children? Where do the kinder, gentler things disappear? Within the tightly crafted stories gathered for your enjoyment by Annie Acorn into Dark Tales From Gents’ Pens!
With their skillfully woven tales, the founding members of From Gents’ Pens, a cooperative of award-winning contemporary male writers, have forged a unique collection of stories that are sure to please those who enjoy a tingle running up and down their spines, as they face the monsters who no longer linger beneath their beds.
