**SPECIAL J. ELLINGTON ASHTON PRESS ANNOUNCEMENT** JEA’s most ambitious project to date, P26, a top secret launch that has been kept under wrap for over a year and involves multiple JEA authors. P26 – Project 26 26 books, each one representing a different letter in the alphabet, with each letter in turn representing a horror-related concept that starts with that letter. The owner of JEA, catt dahman, challenged several JEA authors to participate in this grand project. The project consists of an assortment of anthologies, novels, and short story collections. Many of the authors involved in the anthologies did not even know about this, only that they were part of a larger contest and won a huge prize (to be announced later) Over a year in the making, the creative range and scope of this project is both awe inspiring and terrifying. We challenge you to collect them all. Today we are releasing the first four books: Backwoods Bonfire a novel by Scott Essel Pratt, Vampz Vendetta an anthology featuring multiple JEA authors and edited by John Ledger, Jurassic Jackaroo: Jasper Junction – a novel by Roma Gray and Lacrimation of the Leviathan a novel by Scott Essel Pratt What? They’re not being released in order? Damn straight. At JEA we are rebels, lol. In two more weeks we’ll launch a few more. How many? Which letters? No one knows Almost all of the covers in the Project are by yours truly as well. #epicfishtales #jea #jellingtonashton #horrorwriter #horrorwritersassociation #MeisterArthurDunkel

A tease of a new project coming in the new year! Feel like a vacation? I’m sure we can find you a suitably horrible destination. #epicfishtales #horror #hpl #horrorwriter #hwa


Today’s cardio playlist is more on point with a leaning toward classic trash with old school Metallica, Slayer, Testament and Voivod. Nothing like some Venom and Death to darken it up a bit. I noticed these playlists are getting shorter and shorter. That’s a good thing because that means I’m speeding up. #thrashmetal #thrashmetalworkout #NoMoreFatWriter
