Edit: So bit of an update. Old Rob might not be quite the PoS I first discerned. After his Lulu account was suspended he actually reached out to me directly to apologize. He stated he found the stories on a site where I was uncredited and didn’t believe they fell under any sort of protection, but that upon being informed of the issue felt the need to apologize. So props to him for owning up.
Because of pieces of shit like Rob Matheny here: http://www.lulu.com/shop/rob-matheny/the-chronicles-of-midnight-falls/paperback/product-23601056.html Based on the preview, motherfucker has ripped off at least three of my stories, The Soldier,Sarah's Story, and The Fishing Trip. And old cunty woulda gotten away with it too if I’d just searched for title…Read more >
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 >
