I’ve been on a hiatus for a while. As something of a jack of all trades, I dabble in many things such as writing, filming and schooling while maintaining a steady job. On top of this, there will be a new addition to the Dedman family. The first of many miracles this family will surely be gifted with, and my wife and I embrace it with all the love and warmth parents could possibly give. At the moment, the little one is still basking in the warmth of the womb, but it will emerge a beautiful, healthy, and strong baby boy. 

In short, I’ve been distracted and busy. However, I’m also not a quitter and don’t like allowing this site to collect virtual dust.

I will arrange bi-weekly updates, either new stories or just random, yet interesting posts.

To the writers that have submitted. Your submission have been received. I will get in touch with you shortly.

Calling for submissions

We are calling for submissions for a vampire themed horror writing contest in which the readers get to decide the winner. The rules are simple: Original story (no reprints), no multiple submissions (it was allowed before, but this isn’t a lottery), story must be both horror and vampire-themed (no teen drama stories. I will burn them.), within 9,000 words or less, and lastly tailored for a mature audience.

The winner of the contest will receive a $100 gift card to Amazon. The runner-ups will be featured in the Deadman’s Tome podcast.

The stories will be presented on the blog as soon as they’re screened, and winners will be determined by a mixture of comments and likes.

Contest will be running from now to the end of August 2013.

Send submissions to Legato10@ with Contest as the subject.
