Okay, I know, it’s the holiday season…Merrry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and all that…and that being the case, I am shamelessly self-promoting a wonderful gift—for yourself.

The gift of fear!

Yes, what better way to say “I love me” than to give yourself a story to scare the unmentionables out of you! It tells your self, “Self…I trust you SO much that I will allow you to scare the unmentionables out of me!

Why is that?

Because you know you will be there to comfort yourself, keep you safe, and tell yourself how freaking brave you were to read a scary story all by your lonesome…at night…with but a lone, meager light on to illuminate the pages. Well, okay, it’s an e-story, so you don’t even need a light!

Ha! Be brave!

Might I recommend, oh…I don’t know…a clown story?

How about “Clowns“? It’s short, sweet (in sooo many ways…), and spooky. And it’s got five stars (from two reader reviews—come on, let’s add to this tally…)!

And if clowns aren’t your bag, might I suggest some other stories?

So, come on—don’t be skeered! Or, actually, be very skeered! Skeer the unmentionables right out of you! Buy some skeery stuff! And I’m not even talking for other people—do this for YOU.

You deserve it!

Because, with all you’ve been doing for everyone else this Holiday Season, don’t you deserve a little something extra just for yourself? Go on…indulge. I won’t tell…especially if you do it in the dark. It’ll be our little secret! Give yourself…

The gift of fear!

Disclaimer: the opinions, claims, and shameless self-promotion of the author are not necessarily (but probably are) those of the author or his publishing house (again, the author). The author probably isn’t even very funny or a good writer (though he can take some cool pictures, if you’re not into his writing)…but come on, at least try his one freaking short short story single—it’s only $0.99! You can’t go wrong! You spend more than that on, well, anything else in your life and probably won’t even get half the fun out of all that other stuff as you will out of this short story!

    Good grief, where on earth did you get that terrifying clown!? Do you try and sleep with that thing in your house?? 😮

    And ha, I have to say that every time you write it “Merrry Christmas” I always think of Casper’s uncle Hairy Scary in “Casper’s First Christmas”. At the end, Hairy floats up over Santa and the reindeer and scares the heck out of them by saying, “Merrrrrrry Chrrristmaaaas!” And he makes himself all spikey-looking, and the reindeer take off with Santa yelling “whoa!”! So seeing it written with the extra “r”s has been making chuckle about Hairy. xD

      Ha! My evil plan (and clown) is working!

      My wife received the really cool clown at her workplace’s Christmas party last week. Of course (you know what’s coming next) being who I am…what I do…I simply HAD to put her cool-looking gift to good use!

      And it’s sitting over my left shoulder on a filing cabin–wait a minute…it WAS right there just a minute ag–

    I was the weirdo not in the fear-camp about clowns… I wanted to drop kick the doll in PolterGeist and Pennywise though! 🙂 happy (boo!) Holidays!

    • fpdorchak says:

      Yeah, no askeered about no clowns…however…when they start doing what the ones in this story do, then I sit up ramrod straight and take notice…

      And I never have found the one what had been sitting behind me on my filing cabinet—wait…something just brushed my fee—

    Oddly enough the rocking horse in THE CIRCLE OF FEAR scared me more. That was a terrible movie…might have been my age.
