Who doesn’t love horror?  Who doesn’t love sex?  I see that smile across your face, so maybe you have the same thing on your mind as I did when I wrote ‘Plastic.’

Plastic‘ originally appeared in the Masters of Horror: Damned If You Don’t anthology back in 2010.  It was a story I wrote just for the hell of it earlier that year; a deranged little tale about a man and his love for his sex doll.  I was happy to find a publisher that enjoyed my warped mind.  Three years later, I’m lucky enough that Kevin G. Burton of Cruentus Libri Press has similarly succumbed to my brand of twistedness.  ‘Plastic‘ is now featured in the anthology Horror-tica.

To celebrate, I’m giving away three (3) Kindle copies of Horror-tica to anyone leaving a comment on this blog post.  It’s that easy!  (winners picked at random, names will be drawn from my lucky New Orleans Saints hat).

Here’s an excerpt from ‘Plastic’ to get you wet – your interest, that is 😉

…He unbuttoned his shirt.  He was a bit clumsy.  He tried not to look as he did so, but fumbled at the buttons.  Nervous sweat dampened his pits.  He only wanted to be as sexy as those Chippendales, but the damn buttons.  He glanced at Bunny.  Oh yeah, her back arched impatiently.  She was ready.  Uh-huh.  Girlfriend wanted him.  She wouldn’t care if he skipped the rest of his dance.  Damn you, Chippendales.

He ripped the remainder of the buttons from his shirt.  Flipped his shoes off, yanked the belt from around his waist as if his life depended on it, tore at the button of his pants and…  The belt dangled from his hand; for a moment, he contemplated.  It’d been awhile since he last drew it tightly around his neck.  But tonight wouldn’t be a night to satisfy fetishes.  Tonight would be a night to appease carnal desire.  He flung the belt aside and removed his pants and boxers…


Can’t wait for the giveaway and want to pick up a copy of your own? You can find here it on Amazon

      Thank you, John! There can never be a shortage of warped minds (but only when it comes to horror fiction lol)

      I appreciate your comment. You’re in the running for a free Kindle copy

  2. You know, I am still working on my own horror-tica manuscript. I know you are dedicated to the written word, as I am. I could use the inspiration 🙂

    1. Joseph Pinto says:

      Hey Angel, how’s it going? 🙂
      Thank you very much! I hope my story does not disappoint you then, but remember: find inspiration within yourself, it’s as simply as just picking up your pen (or typing at your keyboard, of course lol) You’re in the running for a free copy

      1. It’s been a long time since I actually exchanged words with you 😉 Hope things are well on your end!

      2. Joseph Pinto says:

        I’ve been a little out of the loop since the summer; not enough hours in the day. But I’m coming back around lol Thank you
        I hope you’ve had your nose to the grind!

      3. Indeed I’ve had my nose to the grind. Once an editor expressed interest in a revised version of my manuscript (and offered up a few choice critiques and suggestions, I was off and running. I’m about halfway through the revisions at this point, and the story has changed for the better, I think. 😉

    Sounds like a fun story to me! Drop my name into the drawing hat … and, if I don’t win, I’ll have to buy it, just so I can see what happens… I’m sure there’s a twist or two to the tale.

    1. Joseph Pinto says:

      Hey John! Thanks, buddy, I appreciate it…your name will be dropped into my lucky Saints hat…lol…good luck! 🙂

      Yes, ‘Plastic’ was written in a very simplistic nature to match the personality of the narrator, of course, but with me, there’s always a twist around the corner 😉

  9. Josie Turner says:
