glass slipper dreams, shattered by doungjai gam

from glass slipper dreams, shattered: Like a stupid girl with glass slipper dreams, I did everything you wanted with the hopes that one day, you would love me back.

advanced praise for glass slipper dreams, shattered

gam delivers devastating punches in this collection of short-shorts, taking our breath away with a turn of a phrase, a dark play on words; every syllable paints unexpected shadows in our imagination.

—Linda D. Addison, award-winning author of How to Recognize a Demon Has Become Your Friend and HWA Lifetime Achievement Award winner

Reminiscent of Mercedes Yardley’s work, doungjai gam’s stories and prose poems are small gems filled with heartbreak, sorrow, and longing, but they also hold light in the darkness and hope in the despair. Lovely!

—Damien Angelica Walters, author of Cry Your Way Home

doungjai gam writes powerful vignettes, songs of darkness and sorrow, anger and pain, with a beautiful prose style. Each tale, regardless of length, another examination of the human condition and the fragments left behind when a soul is shattered. Beautifully tragic.

—James A. Moore, author of the Serenity Falls Trilogy

doungjai gam’s flash fiction exists in a liminal space between poetry and assassination. Every single word in Glass Slipper Dreams, Shattered was chosen for its greatest impact, and the stories are all breathtakingly precise and perfectly honed. Slow down and take your time with these stories. Gam’s beautiful writing is so sharp it could cut a shadow.

—Bracken MacLeod, author of Come To Dust and 13 Views Of The Suicide Woods

Tales brimming with fear, dread and horror—a strong, unique new voice!

—Thomas Tessier, author of Phantom

The LampLight Radio Play Wins a Sarah Award

March 28, 2017.

The LampLight Radio Play won a Sarah Award for “Occurrence at B.E. Investments” for Best New Artist!

Andrew Wardlaw received the award in the WNYC studios. There was fanfare, live performance from Welcome to Nightvale, and a marching brass band.

The first teaser, A Talk with A Fallen Girl was actually created for the 2016 Very, Very, Short, Short Stories Contest, and though it did not win, it set the tone for the Radio Play.

Congrats to Andy. And thank you to the Sarah Awards.

Goliath Is Here

The latest Kaiju Revisted is here! Ghost In The Machine by K.H. Koehler is out now in Print, Kindle and Smashwords ! Kobo, Nook, and Print coming soon!

Ghost In The Machine

 

Utilizing their great cybeasts, the unstoppable Xirian army has conquered a thousand worlds in the galaxy, subjugating or destroying the inhabitants in the process. The War Master has ordered a Level 7 cybeast to be created.

The beast: Goliath. The target: Earth.

Xara is only a scientist, more at home in a lab than a battlefield. She is just barely keeping her life together when the alien attack commences and the Xirians unleash their full fury on the planet.

As she watches Goliath’s devastating initial attack, she forms a plan—a plan that might actually stop the cybeast and save the human race, but it will take a combination of courage, treason, and ingenuity to carry it out…
