I write character-driven dark fiction.
What do you do?

Greetings and salutations, readers and writers! My name is Rob Smales, and this is my website; a place for stories to be told and talked about, and for me to occasionally pat myself on the back for getting something published. 

TERRIFIED CHUCKLES, HEADING YOUR WAY SOON!


Recently, I've been all kinds of busy editing, but one of the projects I've been working on is a doozy!


Coming out August 14,  2018, from Books & Boos Press, is a brand new horror/humor anthology titled A Sharp Stick in the Eye (And Other Funny Stories), edited by yours truly!


With stories of the ghastly-giggle-inducing variety from fourteen different authors, including an original tale from the great Jeff Strand, the editor (that's me!) has been quoted as saying:


"Stick in the Eye was insanely fun to compile, a barrel of laughs to edit--by God, it's a shitload more fun than a sharp stick in the eye!"


We do have a gorgeous cover for the thing, but it hasn't been publicly released yet; if I throw it up here the publisher would have every right to kick me in the nuts. In an effort to save my nuts, please follow the directions in the green rectangle, and use your imagination. I'll get you the cover as soon as I can.

In other news . . .


I recently sent a signed contract back to Limitless Publishing for the sale of my not-so-short story "The Biggest Little Show on Earth" for their Carnival of Nightmares anthology, due out mid October of this year.

Yes, I feel pretty good about this. :D

Let us tell you a story!


Books & Boos Press recently released Triplicity: The Terror Project, Volume 1 as an audio production, read for you by Mark Rossman, available now on Audible and Amazon!


Now you can have your horror:

  • While you drive
  • While you walk.
  • While you work.


Just click on the image, buy the audiobook, download, and go.



Oh, don't forget the most important part: Enjoy!


Site Under Construction!

I'm in the process of giving the site an overhaulin between writing, editing, and working a day job (yep, in that order). Please bear with me.


Navigation menus may change. Sidebars will change. Things will be updated. Some stuff will be added. Some stuff will disappear.


Come on back every once in a while and check out the progress. I'd love to have you.
