Sneak Peek at “The Scare Rows” by Edward Lorn

They came in the middle of the night, to the small town of Bay’s End, and by morning the seeds were planted. The ticket booth was set up at the entrance of Fairchild Farm, the hundred acres of carnival land on the east end of town. The sign atop the booth read:


The Scare Rows

Halloween Night Only!

All Ages Admitted!

Tickets On Sale October 30!

Open from Twilight until the Last Customer has seen The End!

Day late…

To those of you who pre-ordered CRUELTY, they will be going out a day late. I was released from rehab later than I expected, and by the time I packaged everything and made it to the post office, they were closed. Sorry about that. In the meantime, all your tracking information has been uploaded to Paypal, and the books will be in the post tomorrow. Sorry about this.


WHAT THE DARK BRINGS (Signed Limited Edition) Pre-Orders Now Available!

This trade paperback run of pre-orders is limited to ten numbered copies. After this batch is sold out, you will still be able to buy copies through amazon, but I will not be signing future editions. There will be no hardcover version of this book. Also, this limited edition is six bucks cheaper than the Amazon version – $9.99 versus $16.99 – because I’m able to get a discount when ordering direct from Createspace.

Thank you for your support.





CRAWL (Author’s Preferred Edition) Giveaway!

From an upcoming interview:


Maria Hunter Welles provides the performance of a lifetime. Her narration of Edward Lorn’s novelette, CRAWL, is the author’s preferred edition. We got a chance to ask him why.

Edward Lorn says: “CRAWL, by itself, is fine and whatnot, but Maria’s performance makes this piece extraordinary. She brings life and passion to the work, and Julie truly breathes and bleeds. You don’t listen to this audio book, you experience it.” 

I promise this is not lip-service, jaw-jacking, or smoke being blown up your ass. I truly feel this way. The text version of CRAWL pales in comparison to Maria’s performance, and I’d much rather have people listen to her version than read the ebook. Maria captured every character’s voice and personality perfectly. She also managed to perform Silas (the thing in the woods) as I originally intended, in a way that I believe I failed to get across on the written page. You truly must listen to this one to believe it. Maria put her heart and soul into CRAWL, and I want to share her with everyone. This isn’t your typical audio book. It’s a stage performance with an entire cast, or one of those old dramatized radio programs.

So here’s your chance to win one of five copies. Click on the image below to enter the giveaway here on Booklikes, but be quick about it, as the promotion is only a week long. Oh, and share away!
One more thing, if you want to hear a sample, clich HERE.


To the half-dozen people who don’t have CRAWL yet, the novelette is free for the next three days. The audio book will be out in the next week or two, and if you snatch the ebook now, your Audible edition will be deeply discounted. Click on the image for the Amazon.com link.

Thanks, and share away!




FOG WARNING, by Edward Lorn, Coming August 18th!

Emergency Room Physician Brent Cummings is harboring secrets he’d rather leave in the shadows of his past. But, when he finds a dead woman in a foggy park, all his skeletons come tumbling out of the closet.

In a deadly race against time, Brent attempts to alter the future, so that he might finally let go of the past.

Will he heed the warning in the fog, or will fate prove more dependable than the good doctor?

Fog Warning Final







Free ebook coming tomorrow!

In appreciation of the outstanding support given to me by my readers, I’ve decided to giveaway my new release, FULL MOON OVER CEDAR HILL, for the next five days. The short story should be live on Amazon in a couple of hours, but will not be free until well after midnight. I will post again once the story goes live. After the five days are up, I will be removing FULL MOON OVER CEDAR HILL from Amazon, so this is a kind of limited edition thing.


This story is dedicated to the many people I worked with during my time as a CNA, as well as Charlene Cocrane (Char’s Horror Corner), who, in her own way, inspired me to write this tale. You can find out more about that in the foreword.


Thank you so much for your past, present, and future support. Without you guys, I’m nothing more than a guy sitting at his computer, talking to himself.






Peter Hoskins has spent the last three years confined to a bed at Cedar Hill Rehabilitation Center. A massive stroke rendered most of his body useless, but his mind is as sharp as ever.


When the screaming begins, being trapped in his own head is the least of his concerns.


Hungry beasts are roaming the halls, and death might be Peter’s only escape.
