About Dale Parnell
Dale Parnell was born and raised in Norwich and has lived in Staffordshire for almost twenty years. He has been writing, in various forms, for most of his adult life and finds short stories the most enjoyable. His first collection, "The Green Cathedral" includes some of his oldest works along with more recent pieces. He finds inspiration comes most readily in ordinary, everyday moments - like long train journeys and walking to work.
In 2019 Dale released his first collection of poetry, "If I Were Not Me" and his second collection of short stories, "Bramble and other stories".

What miracles can one hundred debut to bestselling authors do with 100 words?
Dark Magic is a collection of over two hundred bite-size drabbles of dark fantasy and horror.
Enter a world of curses and creatures, the hideous and the hexed, where love is cruel and victory is tainted. Where gods and demons hold sway over mortals, senses are enticed and spirits ensnared. Angels fall, dragons rise, shadows hide secrets and power comes from blood and bone and death itself.
Tales of majesty and the Crown have enthralled us all for centuries.
Here, in exactly 500 words, authors regale us with their insights into matters of royal record with stories of awakening Storm Queens wreaking havoc over kingdoms, of magic, of mayhem, of goblins and royal revenge.
Whether glamourous and alluring, or despotic and cruel…heavy is the crown.

Everyone knows the big names of summer horror and their stories. But what about the maintenance man who doesn’t like his rooftop encroached upon? Terror at summer concerts? Tentacles...lots of tentacles.
Rules for Summer fun:
- Wade into the ocean, lake or river with care this season...you don’t know what’s lurking beneath.
- Don’t get too ensnared by your noise-canceling headphones--you don’t know who may sneak up on you.
- Mind the jellyfish.
- Never, and I mean NEVER, put all your trust in your phone’s GPS.
- Question your neighbor's culinary treats, especially if they've just lost a loved one.
Get more tips on what not to do within the pages of Summer Terrors. Stories in 100 word format from authors all over the world from Black Ink Fiction.
