Literary Mayhem publishes "Lost Lake"

My first piece of published short fiction for 2013 has been released over at Literary Mayhem.

You can read it HERE

The site’s publisher Peter Schwotzer contacted me before the end of last year seeking a tale with a winter theme.

The first thought that came to mind was of something lurking beneath a lake and the rest flowed on from there. I really wanted to amp up that feeling of being cold and creeped out at the same time.

I also provided the artwork to go with the tale, an image that will hopefully linger in the reader’s mind long after the final line.

This is my first 4 cents a word paying short story too, so I’m pretty chuffed. Hope you all enjoy it.
