Hello, and welcome to my blog. I originally planned to post short stories here for my readers, but I’ve decided to turn it into a blog instead. Not that I won’t be posting short stories, mind you. I will still post one occasionally. I’ve been working on and editing an older one that I will be posting very soon, as well as a teaser for my novel that is actually a chapter that I cut before publishing. It is from the point-of-view of one of the side characters in the novel.
So, who am I? And why should you read my work? These are two questions I hope to answer for you today. My name is E.B. Lunsford, and I write horror and suspense. I published my first novel two weeks ago. It fell into the genre of extreme horror, but I personally think it’s more Splatterpunk than anything else. It is one of my darker stories. I am also working on a post-apocalyptic series that will consist of four books, among other things.
I’ve always had a fascination with the darker side of life. I loved slasher movies like Halloween and Friday the 13th. I started reading Richard Laymon, Steven King, and Dean Koontz as a teenager. The horror genre just seemed to call out to me, and I didn’t resist the call. I loved reading horror fiction as a way of escaping real life, and I hope my own novels do this for my readers.
My first novel is called No Escape. I dedicated it to my mom and to the late Richard Laymon. I think he would have approved. It’s an erotic horror novel about a group of teenagers trying to survive a weekend from hell. It’s an extremely dark tale, and if you love splatter, you need to read it. And don’t just take my word for it. I have a five-star review on Amazon and another on Apple Books. Check it out and let me know what you think.
Aside from reading and writing, some of my other interests include poker, golf, video games, and rock music. I also have a passion for animals and currently have three cats and a dog. If you would like to know more, feel free to contact me on here, on Facebook, or by email. Thanks for reading, and I will be posting again soon. Stay tuned! -E.B.
