Annie's new job is murder.
When Annie Watkins takes a job at a local New Orleans TV station, she begins to think she’s cursed when her preemptive obituaries ("standbys") seem to be killing off famous people left and right.

With time running out, Annie scrambles to discover what's really happening to her, but it may already be too late.

This Evil is old… And it always takes a life.


How to Kill a Celebrity, a twisted new story from the author of Gristle & Bone, is “sci-fi” at its darkest, taking its inspiration from The Twilight Zone.

How to Kill a Celebrity: a Short StoryNew Orleans, the town full of magic and mystery is where young Annie Watkins finally lands a job at a local television station. Nope, she isn’t the hottest new Weather Girl, she is in charge of obituaries, and prepping them for instant on air time. Sounds kind of morbid, doesn’t it? When the obits she writes, in preparation for the demise of some mover and shaker feels like a prelude to their eminent demise, where can she turn? Is she cursed or is it the dark magic of New Orleans at work?

Duncan Ralston’s How to Kill a Celebrity is a definite sprint on the dark and twisted side of life. Very short, but full of that creepy feel that keeps one glued to each page, there is more story to tell, more darkness to spread. I see potential for a full size novel here that will embellish on Annie and her tale.

I received this copy from Duncan Ralston in exchange for my honest review.
