Twilight Zone Inspired Short Story

If you are a fan of Rod Serling’s The Twilight Zone, you may want to check out my latest short story, Make it Write.  It’s a tale about a wannabe writer, George Jensen, who comes into possession of an amazing software program. The program is the author’s dream come true and his worst nightmare. Soon George has a novel on the New York Times bestseller list. George Jensen should be on top of the world instead, his life is spiraling out of control.

Available at Amazon for only 99 cents!

Make it Write – New Short Story

If you are a fan of The Twilight Zone you may want to check out my new short story, MAKE IT WRITE.  It’s a slight departure from my usual tales tossing in a bit of Rod Serling fantasy along with the usual darker deadly deeds.  I hope you’ll like it.

“Another great story by John Greco. This one reads like a Twilight Zone episode. Every author can relate to this creepy story. And what a twisty ending.” Joseph Souza – Author of Pray for the Girl and The Neighbor.

MAKE IT WRITE is available as an ebook on Amazon for only .99 cents.
