Twisted 50 volume 1
Twisted contains some of the best examples of horror fiction I’ve read in years. Most story collections or anthologies have a few duds. Twisted is the exception. The stories are all fantastic and hugely enjoyable.’

‘doG liveD’, audio excerpt by Troll Dahl
When I was first contacted by Helen Lloyd to audition for the short story ‘doG liveD’ written by Troll Dahl I was over the moon for three reasons. First, I was honoured to be asked to participate in anything with Helen Lloyd (who I’m in slight awe of). Second, I’ve been wanting to narrate a truly scary story since
Artwork, packaging and final polishing of Twisted50 Audiobook complete
We just sent of the Audiobook sleeve to the printers, have mastered the CD’s and are about to send out the final files for duplication. Handling the final audiobook as a physical product is rather exciting, a bit like holding your book versus reading on a computer screen. That buzz never gets old. We shot
‘The Retribution Of Elsie Buckle’, audio excerpt by Lucy V Hay
When London Screenwriters Festival launched the search for fifty horror stories for its Twisted50, Volume 1, I thought – since I wasn’t heading up the initiative – I might as well enter. At the time, though I’d published two books about writing, plus a couple of novels, I hadn’t actually published any short prose. It
Audiobook, the mastering process begins

Will You Be As Bewitched As SV Macdonald Is with ‘Witches’?
I love audiobooks, but the thrill of hearing my own work read out so perfectly by Penny Scot Andrews was almost indescribable. As I opened the file, the wind was whistling around my house, and I was alone at my desk as clouds gathered and it began to get dark… The introductory music set the
My Little Shopping of Horrors by Maggie Innes
TO DO – discuss origins of my Twisted Little Sister story, SHOPPING, for the Create50 blog. (NB Make it interesting) *** OR AT LEAST TRY!!! *** SHOPPING INGREDIENTS (a) – from life I once saw CCTV footage of a guy who had murdered his teenage sister – he and his girlfriend were shopping in B&Q
Twisted50 Audiobook Secret Diary… Entry Four, by Helen Lloyd
I love making audiobooks … not only the reading, but also the editing and pulling everything together. When I was a television producer (I used to produce factual programmes for ITV in the Midlands many years ago) when working with an editor, I tended not to watch the pictures … because I knew that if
‘The Beholder’ by Stephanie Wessell, audiobook excerpt read by Kat Rose Martin
It’s with some trepidation that I sit down to listen to this extract of my story in its new audio form. My narrator, Hannah, has lived in my head for over a year but, perhaps weirdly, I have no set ideas about where she comes from, her ethnicity or what class she is. I am,
Based on a True Story by Paul W. Franklin
An epithet often seen on movie posters, and in many cases I wonder exactly how much of said film – this being Hollywood – resides in reality. The recent ‘Sully’, for example: yes a plane landed on the Hudson River, but that part of the story lasted all of ten minutes, so how much of
Sum Of My Memories by EJ Hughes, audiobook excerpt, read by Susie Riddell
Some of the stories in Twisted50 are demented, disturbing and downright, well yes, Twisted. Then there are some that are melancholic, beautiful and lyrical. Sum Of My Memories by EJ Hughes is one such story. Originally written from a male perspective, Helen Lloyd our Audiobook producer asked the author if we could go with a female voice as Susie Riddell seemed
Twisted 50 Audiobook Secret Diary… Entry Three, by Helen Lloyd
A comment from Richie Brown (one of the Twisted 50 Authors) on the Twisted 50 Audiobook Blog got me thinking. Richie asked “Are some stories better suited to reading aloud than others because of the way they are written? If so, what lends a story to an audio performance? Or is it the case that
A warm heart and cool mind by Duncan Eastwood
My fiancée found Create50. Together we explored the website and with each page the challenge became more appealing. I had one story in mind – a pitch black comedic tale of addiction, family, dating and vampirism. I pained over the telling of the tale, analysed every sentence and rewrote the story. Even though I knew
