Welcome, wanderer.

You seem to have found yourself in my corner of the Internet. I'd ask if you were lost, but we both know you're not.

My pen-name is James Marie Parker the Third. For a long time, I've wanted to write. But finally, after a few stops and starts, I decide to pursuing my dream of writing with full force and gusto. I hope that eventually, I'll be able to make my writing at least a paying hobby, if not a full time career. 

For the most part, my current style of writing is geared towards scary stories, and to flash fiction. In fact, most of my stories, though not all, are generally around 500 words. While these may not seem possible to tell a good story in as few words, fears and chills can still be had in even these small bits. 

In the future, I do plan to expand the general length of my stories, and branch out a bit. Even a few of my scary stories will have aspects of humor or heartwarming. For the most part though, horror will still be my preferred genre of writing, and my writing style will probably still be on the short end of the spectrum.

Where are your stories?

They are inside all of me. Inside of you. Inside the trees and the rocks. And inside that pang of regret you feel when you consider all that you've lost.

They're also, for now, on Reddit. Mainly on the Short Scary Stories sub-Reddit.  However, I have been published in the Book of No Sleep, 1 and 2. Also, I have had a few of my stories narrated, and hope to have more done later.

How do I know you're any good?

Because I say I am. And if you can't trust a random stranger asking for money on the internet, who can you trust in this cold, cruel world?

If you are interested but unsure, then may I suggest indulging in some of my past work? I would suggest reading some of my backlog. I would suggest starting with Suspension of Outbound TrafficThe Empty, and Once More, From The Top. If you're more of an audio person, I have had a few of my stories narrated, such as Auntie Creep's great rendition of The Recognition He Deserved

What you can expect of me

You can expect me to be a proper gentlemen, a gracious host, and to always accept a well made slice of pizza. 

This section will change the more time I am able to write. However, as of right now (7/8/2018), I can guarantee the following:

 Anyone who pays at least 1 dollar will get to read most of my stories a week early before it goes live onto Reddit. These stories will be generally flash fiction, and will be anywhere from 400-1000 words, depending on where on Reddit I wish to post them.

As I am part of the No Sleep Writer's Guild, certain stories will be put up there for narrators to get first crack on. But, if no one takes them up for narration, then they will also get a week here before going onto Reddit, though any Guild narrator still gets the chance to narrate it. As you must be a writer to be part of the Guild, you do not need to fear about others getting to get paid content for free.
 
Certain stories, such as ones for Subreddit Challenges, or stories being submitted for anthologies, may be exempted from this. However, if they are refused, they may go here. 

In addition, from time to time, I may put up various things. Maybe it's my thoughts for the day. Maybe it's a picture of a Batman and Daniel Bryan Funko Pop! figures fighting. Maybe it's an unfinished snippet long buried on my Google Drive. It could be anything!

What I expect of you

A sacrifice of whatever item you cherish most. Item, not person. I can't sell people on Ebay.

Mostly, to have a good time and a quick thrill as you browse the stories. And of course, to not publish any of these stories here without my prior permission. And if the story has not been here for a week, you can assume the answer is no. And for the love of everything you ever cherish, do not take my work and try to pass it off as your own. We'll find out. 

In Conclusion

Thank you once again for dropping on by. I hope to improve and write more and more as I can be able to. And I hope, most of all, that you will appreciate the efforts I put into this. It really is a dream come true to do this. And I don't want this to end anytime soon.

Remember, wanderer. If you ever need a quick moment of excitement and scares, my humble abode will always accept you. And as long as you can find me or my stories, then you are never truly lost...

If you ever become lost, let my voice guide you home.  You'll have access to my stories a week early, and my thanks for the support. 
Goals
$0 of $350 per month
For whom more is given, more is required. 

My rent, phone, and food are pretty much paid for by this goal. With this, I can put more effort into my writing, and improving my craft. 

I can now guarantee more stories per month, as I can sit down and write more without worry about rent.
