Just in Time for Halloween!

Hi y’all! It’s hard to believe my spooky little book, Twelve Tantalizingly Twisted Tales (or T4 as we like to call it), published by Progressive Rising Phoenix Press, is in its second year of publication. To celebrate this milestone, and, of course, to get you in the mood for Halloween, I’ve got five copies signed by not only me, but by the illustrator, Christina Evans, for sale on my author website davidchughesauthor.com/books. These are the last five available with both signatures, so click-shimmy down to my store and grab yours before they’re all gone! And while you’re there, check out the specials I’m running on my other three titles. Enjoy!

Who can pass up a scary tale or a spooky ghost story, especially right before bed on a stormy night after eating a sloppy bean burrito? From possessed bunny slippers to a house guarding an ancient secret, Twelve Tantalizingly Twisted Tales features a dozen short stories sure to raise a few goosebumps, conjure a giggle . . . and make you think twice before disobeying your mom the next time she asks you to clean the shower stall.


“This book is ‘Twilight Zone’ for kids.” Don Winn, founder of Cardboard Box Adventures Publishing and author of the Sir Kaye book series

“Each story is a pleasure!” —Linda LaRue Austin, writer, historian, and author of Midnight Amethyst

“David Hughes is a modern-day weaver of tales much like the classic Grimm brothers. Each story awakens the imagination and questions what we commonly refer to as reality, while entertaining and delighting the senses.” Jan Sikes, author of Flowers and Stone and other biographical fiction
