Many of you are likely familiar with reddit’s scary story sub, No Sleep. Some of you may even post there regularly. Whether you do or not, you may be aware that all not creepypastas are accepted there due to very particular rules their moderators enforce. Specifically, no matter how outlandish the story, everything must be treated as “real” for the sake of comments and discussion. Also, stories that end with something “impossible” happening (i.e. death of the narrator, destruction of the earth, etc) are strictly prohibited. However, the site is currently participating in an event they’ve dubbed “the Purge.” It ends tomorrow at midnight, but until then the typical posting rules will not be enforced by the mods, and any stories posted will r…Read more >
I’ve been lucky enough to have several different narrators adapt a bunch of my work. One of the most common questions I see in comments once the viewers realize the individual stories are part of a series is “what order should I listen to these in?” While I’ve specifically tried to make each story stand alone so that it doesn’t particularly matter where you start or finish, I can understand the desire to progress through the series chronologically. And, since there are currently 19 stories in the Saga and it’s a pain to list them out every time, I figured it might be a worthwhile endeavor to create a blog I can update as necessary and simply direct people to. So, without further ado, the chronological order of the Wicker Saga (so far):

Since getting your stories seen is a big thing for a lot of the authors around here I wanted to bring a new (ish) website to the community's attention. Creepypasta.xyz operates similarly to creepypasta.com in that stories chosen for publication on the site are featured on the front page. The site currently publishes four stories a day. The four most recent stories show up at the front page as well as the four most recently high rated stories (at least a 4 on a 5 point rating scale) and a couple others the admins choose to spotlight. Unlike creepypasta.com there is a good deal of transparency with their selection process. All submitted stories show as "pending" in your profile until they are either accepted or rejected. The only rejections…Read more >
So, I don't think I've ever done a blog post promoting a narration of one of my stories before, but this one is just a little different.
About a year and a half ago I wrote a story for a contest run by Koromo called Her Red Right Hand that, to my great surprise and pleasure, won first place and was featured on the front page as spotlighted pasta of the month. Since then, though, it has been...dead just seems too basic of an adjective but we will go with it. Almost no comments since it was on the front page, no narrations (well, one really bad one), zilch.
Anyway, a couple weeks ago I submitted it to YouTube narrator Dr. Creepen hoping he'd consider adapting it. I was stoked when he decided to pick it up. I was even more stoked when he inform…Read more >
So a coworker of mine and I get together about once a week to watch a horror flick. The other day we thought it would be cool to come up with our unofficial top 100 horror movies. I thought y'all here might appreciate and have some opinions on it. Now, this list is obviously not definitive, or set in stone, as we have reserved the right to bump movies off it as we find others we think we like better. Criteria for the movies wasn't anything consistent: some that made the list are just pure classics, others are "bad" movies that we just liked for whatever reason. That being said, in no particular order, the list we came up with was:
2. The Exorcist
6. The Thing
7. The Blair Witch Project
9. Halloween…Read more >
