Music to die to

There’s one thing that every living creature has in common: we die.

Inside the forthcoming collection, ‘Everyone Dies: Tales from a Morbid Author”, you’ll find ghosts, serial killers, a homicidal husband, a young woman’s emotional death by a classmate, a soldier’s journey home from war, a man with gills, a salon full of blood-thirsty hairstylists and so much more.

After a lifetime of being obsessed with the finality of life award-winning author Melissa Algood brings her first collection of short fiction including fan favorites like ‘The Silencer’, ‘The End’, ‘Julia’, and ‘Caroline Hearts Toby’.   Of the 21 pieces ; six have never been published; which will horrify and intrigue readers.

To celebrate the release of my upcoming collection ‘Everyone Dies: Tales from a Morbid Author’ I’ve decided to share the playlist that inspired the pieces/remind me of the characters when I listen to them.

I would love to thank the musicians of the world because without you I wouldn’t find half the inspiration I do. So thanks.
