Fire in the sky – Portland, Oregon




This final image was shot with the Nikon L810 – f5.7, 1/40 sec, ISO-80, 259mm fl.

Setting the film speed manually to its lowest setting and using a long focal length gave me very intense colours in the sky and a dramatic silhouette of the tree in the foreground.  There was no post-exposure manipulation done to this image.

Thank you for following me on this journey of discovery.

DRUNK ON THE MOON 2 – A New Roman Dalton Anthology by Paul D Brazill


, , , , , , , , ,

You know how, come Christmas morning, you felt there was something missing from under the tree… but you couldn’t quite put your finger on what it was? Allow me…

Paul D. Brazill and Pulp Metal Fiction bring you the long-awaited follow up to Paul’s first Drunk On The Moon anthology…. (drum roll, please!)


Paul’s latest offering opens with a brilliant introduction by master of the horror/pyschological thriller, Richard Godwin, who makes a stirring argument for bringing a little lycanthropy into the fray between good and evil.

DOTM 2 is packed with such heavy-hitters as Paul D Brazill, Carrie Clevenger, Chad Eagleton, Matt Hilton, Ben LeLievre, Chris Rhatigan, Ben Sobieck, JJ Toner, Vincent Zandri and…

Well, look at this… little ol’ me… in here with all these ‘big fish’! Hang on a sec…. (does little happy dance)…

Thrilled… and honoured… that’s what I was when Paul approached me about using one of my ‘Erin’ pieces in an anthology he was putting together. Of course, I said ‘yes’!

Chuffed… is what I am now… seeing my story in print along with these amazing writers… totally chuffed!

Congratulations, Paul… and everyone who has contributed their time and talent to make this anthology possible. It’s an amazing collection of stories… I’m going through my second read right now; I can’t seem to put it down!

A special thank you to Marcin Drzewiecki & Jason Michel for the amazing (you already said amazing, Veronica)… for the awesome (said that too, sweetie!)… brilliant (mmm…)…

Thank you, Marcin and Jason, for your fantastically inspired cover art! 😉

I shot this with the Samsung SGH-i727 and imported into Instagram, which , unfortunately, stripped away the image information.
