I am an Artist, Author, Musician, Poet, from Upstate NY.
I've worked in television and radio, doing voice overs, making and editing commercials. I've even physically been in a few. I've been in a few bands. I have two short story collections and 2 novels published with more on the way. I write my own music, and do some amateur photography. I went to school for graphic arts and as you'll see, I do all sorts of different kinds of artwork, although I've been doing a lot more digital stuff lately.

Interests

Deviant Nightmares Magazine and Other Stuff

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 28, 2014, 12:57 PM


The anthology didn't really get all that much interest, and I'm trying to get exposure for you guys, so the decision was made to take Deviant Nightmares in a slightly different direction.

I give you... Drumroll (cue echo-effect and booming God-like voice)

Deviant Nightmares Magazine!:happybounce: I think I've fainted. Heart 

Deviant Nightmares Magazine - Issue #1 Coming Soon by joseph-sweet


Yup, we decided to publish a quarterly magazine.

what does this mean for you?
Well, it means that it will be a bit easier to publish you guys on a regular basis, and magazines are shorter, so... Offline and on here, we have enough stories for most of next year's issues. Between 3 and four stories per issue, depending on length of submissions, and articles written by staff. there's also opportunity for that now as well. If you write a news article that's relevant to the magazine, and want a shot, note me with it and I'll give it my consideration. 
We're looking for horror, dark science, apocalyptic, and dark fantasy fiction. The magazine may be themed on some months, but at other times will be considered general horror. Articles pertaining to this category and movies and books in that area will be considered.

We're currently looking for apocalyptic, zombie, vampire, werewolf and general horror stuff. The more violent the better, but it needs to be good.

Also art. Really anything goes. We may be featuring an artist or author in each magazine, so if you want your stuff featured in a magazine that could potentially be viewed by millions, get submitting.

I'll be changing the folder in a few minutes or making a new one for general DNM submissions.  DNM=Deviant Nightmares Magazine, of course. 

Submit anything you think will fit in there, articles, stories, art, photography, etc. And if you feel that you know an artist, author or both who is worthy of a magazine feature, shoot me a note.


I'll do another feature in the next day or two. hings have been hectic. 


I apologize for not being around to approve submissions for nearly a month. Some unexpected stuff happened.

For 2015 submissions - at least for the first couple of issues - think vampires and werewolves, but we aren't looking for sappy romantic stuff. No twilight-like stories. We're looking to go back to the roots of vampires and werewolves that made them terrifying to begin with.

Blood and gore and violence and darkness. Keep it coming. We'll take it to the masses and hopefully get you the recognition you deserve.

Hello! It has been a while!! How have you been? 
I have been absent from deviant art for far too long and I might have missed a lot of things. But I'm finally at a good place in my life and ready to write more again! If we're still doing prompts or something like that, I' d love to be part of it. I really want to be more active in deviant nightmares, if that's possible :-)
Also, congratulations on your book being published!

Thanks.
I can start doing prompts again. Just no one seemed to take any interest in them.
Probably won't be prizes for a while. I'm broke. 
I'll go post one. :)

I don't want any prize for it, just writing exercises!
 (I can contribute for points if you want! I only have what I've won before but I don't have any use for them)

You don't have to. that's what it should be for is to help improve writing skills. People don't need prizes for prompts. They can get their work featured. that's exposure. That's good, right? I already posted something. The first thing to pop into my head when I made up the prompt.

Hey so my story is almost done for the prompt but I need like a few hours. Is it okay if I submit it a little (like not more than 2 hours) after the deadline? If it's not, I understand. I can always submit it to the group. Sorry about that. I was kind of overwhelmed with finals and school.

Understandable man. I mentioned in one of the last posts that if someone wanted an extension, I would do it one last time.
