Thrillers, Killers -n- Chillers Closes its Doors

It is with a heavy heart that I inform you that the tremendous site, Thrillers, Killers -n- Chillers has closed up shop. This was a great site and hosted some terrific stories over the years. I had my first short story featured there and I still remember when Col Bury emailed me to let me know my story had been accepted. It was such a great feeling.  All is not lost however, as Davis Barber is taking the baton and hosting a new site called, Thrillls, Kills, -n- Chaos.

Big thanks to the kind and talented writers who put so much time and effort into making TKnC such a great site: Matt Hilton, Col Bury, Lee Hughes, and Lily Childs...WELL DONE!

You can check out the final TKnC post HERE and the new Thrills, Kills -n- Chaos site HERE
