Turning a Vocal Story into an Audiobook
Hello Again! For those of you who may not know, back in September, I self-published my first book, a horror novella titled, The Wailings. This story is special to my journey as a writer because it began on this very website as an entry to a Vocal Challenge. I documented the process of self-publishing in my article, "How I turned a Vocal Story into a Book."

How I Turned a Vocal Story into a BookTop Story - September 2023
The day has arrived where I can finally hold a book that I've written in my own hands - and I have Vocal to thank for it. I know I'm not the first Vocal writer to have this accomplishment. I believe Mike Singleton, Natasja Rose, and others have also gone down the path of self-publishing.

Nights in the Garden of Eve
“Mags, you ever dream of escaping this shithole?” “Only all the time,” I sighed. If I pressed my face into the iron bars, I could see my friend’s face around the bend. A dark liquid oozed out of the sponge when Ruth gave it a twist, her face pulled in tightly in disgust. She shoved a couple baby hairs away from her face and huffed loudly, throwing me an exasperated look in her misery.

The WailingsTop Story - June 2023
“It’s not always the bird in the cage that flutters. Sometimes it is the wailings of the soul.” -Unknown Rei finished folding her 992nd origami crane, only to realize that the tip of its wing was dotted with blood. The girl frowned, before reasoning that the crane would probably still count – despite the stain.

Fantastic Fatherhood ComicsTop Story - June 2023
I am a huge fan of anything that makes me laugh, and this has influenced everything from my taste in movies to my dating life. But if I'm being honest, I owe this love of laughter to my Dad - the first person to make me laugh and the first person to make me appreciate the humor of our silly little lives.
