Krazy for K.Z.
K.Z. Morano is an exquisite writer. She plays with words the way a solo pianist plays a grand piano. She’s one of those writers who’s worth reading just to see how she makes the language sing. But don’t think she’s all pretty words and purple prose. Oh, no, she has a dark side that is blacker than midnight. She has a penchant for gut wrenching horror, though she also pens romance, erotica and sci-fi.
A self-described writer, chocolate lover and beach bum, K.Z. is a spectacular emerging writer. Her recent works include “The Other Child” in Ugly Babies: the Anthology by JWK Fiction in October 2013 (reprinted in Blood Reign Literary Magazine December 2013 and in Sirens Call #13 Women in Horror issue), “Wooden Lips” in Cellar Door: Words of Beauty Tales of Terror Volume II and “Diaries of Bones” in Bones II by JWK Fiction, “Deep” in Blood Reign Bloody Valentine Edition, “Fireworks” in Off the KUF, and “Kitsune” in Amok by Solarwyrm. Several of her stories will also be appearing in various forthcoming anthologies.
The latest opportunity to read this elegant wordsmith will come in April when 100 Nightmares will be debuted. These tiny tales of terror will grab you by the throat and make your heart pound, I guarantee. Read a description of her upcoming book below. Enjoy this trip to the dark side, times 100.
100 NIGHTMARES by K.Z. Morano is a collection of horror stories written in exactly 100 words and accompanied by a few illustrations.
It takes a brief encounter with death to cause enduring nightmares.
A single well-placed blow could maim you for life…
One well-placed word could haunt you forever.
Micro-fiction is a blade—sharp, swift…
Sometimes it goes for the jugular, killing you in seconds.
Its silver tongue touches your throat and warm blood hisses before you can scream.
Sometimes, the knife makes micro-cuts in the sensitive sheath of your sanity, creating wounds that will fester throughout eternity.
Take my 100 words daily like a slow-acting poison or read them all and die of overdose.
It’s your suicide after all.
