Happy Thanksgiving to our friends and followers in the US! Hope you have a wonderful day with family and/or friends.

Today, I’m pleased to share the Amazon release for the Horror Matsuri 2020 ebook! If you pre-ordered a copy (thank you!) it should now be available in your Kindle Library. Regarding non-Amazon sellers, the links should be available next week. (Sorry, I forgot about the office closures of Draft2Digital and some of the retailers for the Thanksgiving holiday, so the book hasn’t passed review there yet).


In October 2020, Insignia Stories ran a month-long online event, Horror Matsuri*.

This ebook features the 5 flash stories and 5 poems that were published here on the Insignia Stories site throughout the month. These works will remain free to read online–this ebook is simply a digital copy for anyone who would like to download the collection.

A full calendar of the event and links to all content will remain on the Horror Matsuri 2020 page. Several authors also participated in Horror Matsuri as blog tour guests. I hope you’ll check out their stories as well!
