I think a lot of writers had the "queen for a day" experience back then, but by the time My Clockwork Muse was released in October of 2011, Amazon had pretty much pulled the rug from under us indies. Amazon giveth, and Amazon taketh away. Anyway, "The Poe Files," despite being my best books, never enjoyed the limelight the way my previous work had. By 2013, I realized that any further work -- and, for me, it is very hard work -- was pretty much wasted effort. In February 2013, I stopped work on the third installment of Poe, tentatively entitled The Conqueror Worm, not so much because I did not want to write it. It's just that I simply could not get myself to devote so much effort for so little payoff.
I was happy with what I had done, though, and I always thought it was a shame to waste it.
So I've gone ahead and published the Prologue here on my blog. If you're interested click on the button above.
I've always been a big fan of Gothic horror and I think this Prologue to THE CONQUEROR WORM is a pretty classic example of Gothic horror.
So take a look. Give me some feedback, if you like.
I have to warn you, though. It's VERY SCARY! HOW-WOOOOOOO!!
