Okay, folks. We’re officially less than a week away from the release of the last story in this volume of UGLY LITTLE THINGS. It’s been a hell of a ride since January, and I want to thank each and every one of you who bought, shared, and reviewed these stories. Although the last story is almost here, we’re not quite done. Not by a long shot.
I want to end this volume with a bang. ULT #4 has the potential to do so–but I can’t do it without your help. The release date is this coming Friday, April 4th, which means we have five days to tell everyone about it. Here’s what I have in mind:

If you know anyone who loves horror, or if you’re involved in any of the thousands of horror-focused groups and communities on the internet, please spread the word about this story. Tell them what the story’s about. Here’s the synopsis:
Welcome to Dalton, West Virginia, home of the famous toy company, Dalton Dollworks. Founded in the late 1970s, the Dollworks has built a reputation around its quaint, lifelike dolls—and now the company is poised to go worldwide.
Meet journalist Felix Proust. He’s been invited to Dalton for an exclusive interview with Maggie Eloquence, CEO of the Dalton Dollworks. Thing is, he’s been in town for all of five minutes and he already knows something isn’t quite right. The stench of manure is everywhere, all the adults seem to be over sixty, and the children regard him with silent contempt.
Felix isn’t about to let this odd town get to him. He does have a job to do, after all. But as the day wears on, Felix learns there’s more to Dalton than meets the eye, and that some dark secrets should remain buried deep in the earth at all costs . . .
THE HARBINGER is the latest entry in Todd Keisling’s Ugly Little Things series, offering a startling new vision of unsettling horror that leaves the reader holding their breath until the very end.
Out of the four stories in this volume, THE HARBINGER is what I would consider to be the most traditional horror story of the bunch. It’s my ode to Lovecraft’s The Shadow Over Innsmouth.
Additionally, I’ve created a couple of Facebook banners to be used on your profiles. If you’re willing, please use one of these as your banner this week. As above, click the images to load the full resolution version:
