Photography

Posted in Writing on June 27, 2010 by stephenjamesprice

As some of you know, I’m a professional photographer when I’m not writing (something has to pay the bills.) Last night, I was at a wedding that included 3 dogs in the guest list: two fat poodles and a black lab. The lab and one of the poodles were wearing bow ties. The owner, an elderly woman dressed to the nines, was all smiles as I snapped a few shots. When I asked why of the dogs wasn’t wearing a tie, her smile faded a little and she looked at me like I was stupid.
“Because,” she said in an indignant tone, “that one is a girl.”

Well, DUHHH!

Pages of Promises – Amazon Review

Posted in Writing on June 15, 2010 by stephenjamesprice

4.0 out of 5 stars Effortless, brilliant storytelling, June 14, 2010
By Harper Hull (SC via UK)

This review is from: Pages of Promises (Kindle Edition)

Mr Price has a way with words – the stories contained in this collection fly by, it’s so easy to read them, get lost and shoot out the other side without even realising you’d got there. The bloody, twisted and often funny tales in this book cover all sorts of subject matter, from classic horror conventions (given a sharp twist) to very personal scenarios from the mind of the author – one thing they all have in common is a snap of an ending that will make you recoil, scream, laugh – possibly all three at once. My favourites include ‘Damn, I Hate Stephen King’ (simple but effective story for married couples!) ‘The Final Chapter’ (a great yarn about a chap who takes rubbings of grave stones) and ‘One Man’s Angel’ (do you make your own luck or is something bigger in control?)

Summary – outstanding collection of bite-sized horror shorts, recommended heartily. Look forward to more in the future from Mr Price.
