I'm currently self-publishing my second book. It's called Southern Terror. It's a horror anthology. The tales are chilling but also hilarious because of my sense of humor. It should be released in a month. Here is a pic of the front and back cover, and a brief description of the stories.

1408

“Alerts From The Grave” --- A porn star receives text messages and emails from her dead husband

“The Dark Road.” --- A trip through the woods turns into a night of pure terror.

“The Magician And The Beast.”--- A unique animal is the attraction for a sinister traveling magician.

“Giggling in the dark.” --- A young couple hears weird laughter and noises coming from their basement..

“The Power Of The Punch.” --- A struggling female boxer is given breast implants that give her the strength of three men. But everything has a price...

“Last Thoughts.” --- A womanizing politician is killed by his wife over and over in an endless loop; each death more brutal than the last.

“7 pm.” --- After almost dying in a street fight, a young drug dealer struggles to get his life and family back on track. But can he?

“Dirty Underwear.” --- A necrophiliac mortician gets a taste of her own medicine...

“Mail-Order Bride.” – A lonely old man finds a beautiful bride online, but he soon regrets his choice.

“The Intruder.” --- A family is fighting for their lives against an intruder who may be a bigger threat than they think.

"The Special Child." --- A youth counselor is concerned about a foreign child who has gotten everyone sick.

“The Scarecrow.” – A young reporter's first news assignment is to write an article about a scarecrow that walks at night.

Sounds like my usual Monday.

Seriously, these sound pretty awesome. Be sure to keep us updated.

You guys like the Thriller video, correct? Well, my short promo to promote the book was obviously inspired by it :D

The video is cheeky, if I knew nothing about you, id almost say you were a MJ fan. haha

The video, while light hearted, doesn't really convey the message that an actual professional product is being sold.
I mean it does, but it looks much like something a highschooler would assemble for a project. Then upload to youtube.

That was my impression, and I replayed the video quite a bit. I feel as if the thread here was more inciting for a synopsis of the book.

Thanks for the feedback. Yeah, it's intentionally silly, but so are the stories within the text. They're horror stories with a wink.

Here is a free sample. This is the story called Dirty Underwear (http://www.ajdugger.com/uploads/7/5/5/9/7559732/dirty_underwear.pdf). It's about a necrophiliac mortician swearing revenge on her womanizing ex-husband

Disclaimer: Watch out for language, violence and mild sexual content. Don't let kids read this. :unsure:

Let me know what you think.

Thanks for supporting! :) Roger used his ghostly abilities to record it from the rooftop where he initially stood. It's one of those supernatural things. You enjoyed the first story? They only get better!

I'm not as keen on the bat wolf gremlin story as I was for the Officer Brown and T-Money & Charley Story.
I'm about half done with the book.

Poor Francis though. She was so brave...or so she thought.
