Crimson Streets #1 — Out Now!

Crimson Streets was one of the first websites to feature my work, and they have been great to me, even when some of my stories didn’t work for their website.

Moving forward, they have released their first physical magazine, Crimson Streets #1: A Story A Week and Other Tales. It contains detective stories, weird tales, and nearly everything between the two. Moreover, it contains fantastic illustrations. (Also, contains my short story, “Confession.”)

It’s $15.99 USD, but it’s 304 pages long, so you definitely get your money’s worth. Purchase it on Amazon now!

Also make sure to check our their Facebook and Twitter!

Looking for Beta Readers!

It’s that time again! My second book, currently untitled, is set to release in July. Thus, I’m looking for some kind, but critical, beta readers to help make the book the best it can be.

If interested, please contact me via email (, or through Twitter (@Micah_Castle).

Those who do help will be listed in the “Thanks To” page on the book, also will receive a free digital copy (or paperback copy, depending on how many beta readers and how well the book does) upon release.

Looking for Beta Readers!


Currently looking for beta readers for my collection of short stories, which I plan to release late 2016. It’s seven stories, two of which around 5K, others below that length, and even some are less than 1.5K. They’d be classified as weird fiction and Lovecraftian, so if you enjoy those genres, then this is for you.

Looking for any type of feedback. If you can only read one or two stories, and offer feedback, that’d be helpful as well.

Let me know if you’re interested by contacting me via Twitter (@iwritepoorly) or email (! If you could provide your email, I can send it to you in a .zip file, or better yet, a link to a Google Doc! Names of beta readers will be included in the “Thanks to:” page of the finished book.

Thank you,

Micah C.
