A Word From Sal

Those of you who have been following closely know I started my novel writing career a long time ago as Sal Conte.

Today I started a new Sal Conte short story. It's straight up horror. That's what Sal writes. But there are no monsters in this one. The horror is a dentist. I had a dream about going to the dentist. The dentist was Sam Jackson. He was cursing up a storm (as always) and telling me how he liked to inflict pain. I woke up in a sweat, and realized I had the concept for my new Sal Conte Short story. The Toothache Man.

I started writing it today. I plan to have it available along with the vintage Sal Conte Splatterpunk stuff in October. If all goes according to plan I will be posting them on kindle in time for some Halloween fun. All will retail for a paltry 99c each.

I will keep you posted on how it's going. Hope some of you will support the horror work. If horror is not your thing, no prob. My new YA paranormal, Boyfriend From Hell, comes out in September.

I have something for all your morbid tastes.



  1. I love horror! I can't wait for the new short story. The dentist has always been creepy to me, so a horror story about it seems appropriate. :)

  2. Thanks for the comment. It's fun getting back into the genre.

  3. I'm shuddering just thinking about it - and that smell...

  4. It's funny you mention the smell. I saw your comment and smiled because I talk about it in the story. Whoo hoo!
