A Thrilling New Creative Collaboration - Bleeding Ink - A Collection of Dark Tales

I was right into the throes of NaNoWriMo when along came an collaborate with two talented writers -  Patricia Hollett and Tammy Crosby  - compiling deliciously dark, sinfully sinister, eerily evocative, frighteningly funny and though-provoking tales.

The creative collaboration proved incredibly tempting.  The idea of giving writers an opportunity to share their unique voice in a collection I helped create thrilled me to no end.

How could I refuse?

I gently closed the file containing the nano story I'd been working on, "The Guardian of Secrets" - not to be abandoned but to tuck it away for safekeeping for a few days - and began an inspired and impassioned dialogue with my collaborators.

Astonished by their enthusiasm and talent - I have never had the pleasure of working with people so passionate  - those few days produced a wonderful and worthwhile project I'm proud to be part of...

My tale of dark fiction is now available at:


Moira Murphy’s fate awaits her in
Deathly Quiet
A tale of dark fiction by
Lisa Forget
ISBN 978-1-927361-15-3

When Moira Murphy stops by Sebastopol Row to visit the handsome young Percy Brown–the man her heart desires–she finds nothing but empty stables and a pool of dripping blood. With a large black crow watching her every move while black clouds and rolling thunder suddenly fill the skies above her, fear propels her into the Brown family home.

The moment she crosses the threshold, stepping into the dark and seemingly empty house, Moira knows something is very wrong.  Dread races through her and dark shadows take on a human-like shape and when long, razor-sharp canines glint in the candlelight Moira realizes what lies within the deathly quiet of the house is a fate even her vivid imagination cannot fathom.
Set in a village west of Montreal’s harbor during the age of Victoria, Deathly Quiet is a tale of a young woman’s encounter with a dark and mysterious stranger that changes her life…forever.

Lisa Forget lives in Quebec, Canada with her husband and three daughters. A singer and entertainer by profession, she enjoys writing dark, paranormal, romantic and young adult fiction as an extension of her artistic expression. This fall, four of her flash fiction stories will be published in Pill Hill Press’ anthology - Daily Flash 2012 (The Leap Year Edition). Earlier this year her short story entitled “Hope” was acquired by Chicken Soup for the Soul Publishing LLC and her twisted 50-word story "Writer's Block" was published online at
