You’ve Been Warned

Tomorrow, I will start posting sections of a gory horror novella that I finished 2 weeks ago.  I am making this post as a kind of ‘reader warning’ like they do on television.  This novella will feature the following elements that may not be suitable for all readers.  They are definitely not suitable for young readers:

  1. Cursing (not the little ones, but the big ones.)
  2. Gore (I went over-the-top horror on this one since it was an experiment.)
  3. Violence (Yes, I know Legends of Windemere has violence, but there is an odd difference between fantasy battles and real life style violence.)

That’s the warning and the first part of ‘Catalysts’ will appear tomorrow. I will probably only go as far as chapter 2, but that really depends on the response I get.  I will admit that it gets darker as it moves toward the end.

Remember: You’ve been warned and, as always, enjoy.

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

    Sounds good – sort of! I just finished my first Horror book – Blood Fugue by my writing tutor from Warwick University, Joseph D’Lacey. An amazing read that really gave me the heebie jeebs. So, bring it on!

      I’ll try my best. Horror is a new genre for me and writing a novella is also a test of my abilities. So far, the few friends that have read it seem to like it. They also seem to be staying at an oddly far distance from me since reading it.

        Horror is difficult. Getting the reader to see what you see is not easy – as Stephen King said with his rabbit analogy, everyone sees a slightly different rabbit.

        Still, I will read in the day with the lights on, just in case!

        That’s a really good analogy, but that makes sense given the source. You should be safe in the dark for the first chapter, which is build up to the terror. 🙂
