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.’

How did THAT happen? by Maggie Innes
To me, ultimate horror is good people being driven to do bad things, and it’s vital that readers relate to characters and care about them. Stephen King is a master at managing the “How did THAT happen?” moment. But when I saw the Create 50 “Can you write a horror story in a weekend?” message
High Heels aren’t for walking are they? by Sasha Black
I love wearing high heels. The power. The adrenaline pumping sexuality. The socially acceptable dirty pretty look every woman, and some men too, can use or better still, abuse. For a transgender twist on the vampire story, high heels seemed an appropriate and powerful totem for the heroine in my story, Tatiana. Once a man,
Just Do It by Richie Brown
Entering stories into Twisted 1, was, for me, quite a leap of faith, not in the competition, but in myself. I’d done no creative writing since school, and that was a long time ago, but have always been an avid reader of fiction, including horror fiction, so thought it was time to try. I am
Inspiration for the story Flat Hunting by Gordon Slack
Some years ago I visited an elderly relative who had just moved to a smaller house. It was, of course, a tiring experience for her and I politely asked “This will be your last move?”. “No”, she responded and then said, with her wonderful (slightly wicked?) sense of humour, “Just one more, to my single
How can someone unspookable write a horror tale? by Drew Williamson
I seem to have a predilection for the fantastic that goes back as far as I can remember, which, I believe, stems from my early television viewing habits in the late 60s and early 70s. The shows that drew me in and set my imagination running were Mr Benn, Timeslip, and Marine Boy, which were
Nick Yates grabs first local press article
Following his awesome press release, Nick managed to be the first of our authors to get into a newspaper (pic below)! Here’s his release… Local author selected for bestselling horror anthology Stamford author Nick Yates has hit the Halloween horror heights after his short story won an international competition to be part of a best-selling anthology.
What I Did On My Summer And Every Vacation And Many Late Nights Aka Discovering Create50 By Hillier Townsend
I came to the party (the party being submitting my writing to competitions) later than many. Despite having worked as a writer professionally for over 30 years and having written little stories and poems since I could first manage a pen. Once at the party, my writing partner and I thought surely the screenplay we
Twisted50 is an Amazon Best Seller! It’s Official!
Yes we did it, we officially knocked the King from his throne. We nudged Stephen King from his number one spot in Horror Bestsellers and into the number two spot. So congratulations to everyone involved in Twisted 50 and most of all the 50 Authors. YOU ARE BEST SELLERS! Let that sink in for a
The Sugarloaf and the Red Shows Backgrounder by Marie Gethins
Hi my name is Marie Gethins and I have an irrational obsession with dance reality shows. It started with satisfying curiosity—what faded celebrities and sports stars were willing to do for a second bite of that fame apple. First the introductory stills were enough. Oiled and spray tanned in skimpy costumes, I relished the wave
PATIENCE or the Long (and Often Convoluted) Journey and Evolution of a Two Page Twisted 50 Story by Kris Rickards
Do you remember that George Harrison song? ♫ It’s gonna take time, A whole lot of precious time ♫ Turns out he was a bit of a prophet. Often you hear writing gurus, mentors and lecturers preaching about how everything takes time in this writing malarkey. Things like, “it takes ten-thousand hours to become good
Finger Lickin’ Twisted50 Success by JM Hewitt
Towards the later part of 2015 I came across a competition. It was entitled Twisted 50, and they were looking for short stories in the horror genre. The fifty winners would be published in an anthology. I’d never considered writing horror, although I’m a huge fan of horror books and films. I think it started
