The Death of...??? A rather macabre concept


Does the idea of your personal fictional death tale hold a macabre appeal? Would you be interested in me writing that death tale?


With the success of The Daily Death, I’m seriously considering commissioning personal death tales. Each tale would be indigenous to the commissioner, making each tale specific and a one of a kind. Of course, I hold the right to kill you the way I see fit, as well as word count, and can only promise that you will die…probably unpleasantly. Of course, I suspect the commissionee will fill out a form similar to those for personalized books in order to give me an idea who you are and to make the tale very personable. This could also make a great gag gift for those fearful of death. Sound interesting? Read on…


Along with the tale would be a signed letter and photo (Wee Willie Wicked) and postage is included. And, although I would be the writer, signing the tale as such, I’ll relinquish any rights. After all, it is your death and you get to keep it. Yes…I will kill you for the low, low price of ??

However, like I mentioned, at this time I’m only in the consideration stage and would simply like to know what you think?  Send your thoughts concerning this probably outlandish, but gruesome idea to stayingscared@yahoo.com.


Well, the Goodreads contest where I was giving away 5 signed copies of The Daily Death – How I Killed My Co-Workers In 30 days is over and a macabre congratulations goes out to Heidi of VA, Sherry of GA, Kayla of FL, Amanda of PA & Ashley of IL. If you folks are reading this, your copies are in the mail. Otherwise, to the 606 folks who weren’t fortunate enough to win, but are interested in obtaining a copy, they are available on Amazon. Here’s the links:

So, until next week ghouls, let the creepy crawlies run rampant...even if their climbing on you!

  1. This is actually a (as far as I know) one-of-a-kind idea. It seems to me that people would be curious as to how you would 'kill them.'

    As I consider this novel idea of yours, wouldn't it be wild to have the commissioner actually die subsequently in the same fashion?

    I can think of all kinds of scenarios stemming from that!

  2. Jeremy, don't think I haven't thought of that too. Rather uncanny huh! Of course, in both fiction and real, stranger things have happened. However, creepy, as opposed to "wild" would probably describe it better. Mwahahahahahahahaha.

    Thanks for taking the time.
