Daddy Come Get Me

“Daddy come get me.”

It’s four words a parent never wants to hear. I’ve always been worried about these calls. Being her father never gets easier. I don’t even ask her what is wrong. I don’t need to because she’ll tell me what happened when I get there.

Escaping Eden

I


“Hello!” I said as I approached the bench.

The man’s eyes shot up with a start looking up over the thing he held in his hand. “Are you talking to me?”  He asked. He looked tired and agitated despite the placid mask of emotionless empty the rest of his face conveyed. I felt my insides lurch, instantly regretting the interaction. I had to keep going so I kept smiling until he smiled back. There was no way he could be like all the rest. If he was, there was no hope. Finally, he did smile and I felt my stomach fall. His smile was exactly like the ones I’d left behind. Fake. False. I felt my heart racing a bit in my chest.

everything in this world is for show.
the worst part is there’s no way to know…

The Raffle

There’s a Raffle that’s been going on in my town ever since I was a little boy. They started doing it in the 90’s. People seemed to have a lot of opinions about it. Everyone’s always said it was stupid and they hated it. I think some of those people are lying. People say we should get rid of The Raffle but they never do anything to actually change it. It’s all a bunch of talk and no action. The Raffle’s been going on so long I was numb to it for a long time but I’m starting to feel some way about it again. I started to read between the lines and understand what was actually happening in our city. If you live here too, just be glad you haven’t won yet.

‘Jeffrey Dahmer’ is My Neighbor

My husband Daniel is the type that keeps to himself. He doesn’t talk to any of the neighbors whereas I’ve always been outgoing. Even as a kid, I liked to get to know people so I could understand them better. Understand what they’re feeling better. I can learn so much about people by striking up a conversation…occasionally, I’ll meet someone I’d be best off avoiding…

Note To Narrators

So you are a narrator who would like to produce one of my stories? Thank you so much for your interest!

It does not take much effort to directly ask permission and most times I’m friendly and happy to give it…

Please be aware that if you narrate ANY of my stories without my written permission you are in violation of copyright law.

Chances are if you’ve found yourself here, you’ve either…

  1. Asked my permission and I’ve sent you here with my blessing so you can see what my expectation is for attribution/credit.
  2. Been caught doing it without asking, and you have been referred here to understand why you can’t just do that and why I’m possibly now acting like a mean jerk.

If you have gotten the okay from me, then first, I thank you for asking… In most cases* the credit I’d like is:

  • A link in your description to follow my Facebook http://www.facebook.com/scottsavinohorror
  • Please also sayby scottsavino.com” When you introduce the story. (Ex: “The Purpose” by scottsavino.com)
  • If the above tastes weird you can also say “by Scott Savino at ScottSavino.com
  • When you’re done please send me a link so I can share it.

If I’ve given you permission to use it for free this is how I would like the link back…

*This is subject to change depending on the circumstance and I reserve the right to negotiate other terms with narrators prior to their production of my writing.

I own everything written here. All of it. This is not free to reproduce to build your personal/business channel without my consent. That includes anything I’ve written and any place you’ve found it, whether here on scottsavino.com on my subreddit, my user posts on Reddit, on r/NoSleep, on Twitter, on Facebook or wherever else I have chosen to post my written work. It’s mine. I can post it wherever I want and it’s still mine. I love exposure but I don’t need your unsolicited help. This website and I are doing just fine. Most days I’m getting significant unique visitors on my own.

Should you choose to narrate any of my stories without my express permission, I may or may not issue a DMCA Violation Report and have MY CONTENT removed from YOUR CHANNEL faster than Linda Blair’s head can spin. It is very easy for me to do this and you won’t like it. It will depend on my mood. Would you rather have permission or find yourself subjected to the moods of someone who regularly writes about irrationality, mental illness, mayhem, and death?

It’s easy but it will probably make me angry and neither of us want that.

It doesn’t matter if you didn’t know it was stealing. It’s still stealing. If you didn’t ask, it doesn’t belong to you….And actually, even after you have permission to use it, it’s still my story.

This is not because I’m a mean person. I’m actively trying to sell some of these stories and as such, some are not open to narration. These are my words and I will choose who gets to use it for likes, channel content or monetary gain (read this as ‘ad revenue’).


That being said I am a member of a collective group and if you are interested in a cooperative group of talented people, we would love to have you and your talent as one of our members. Narrators can directly collaborate with authors to mutual benefit and avoid misunderstandings and hurt feelings. Here is where you can join us! (This is the same group on either platform):

www.reddit.com/r/NoSleepWritersGuild

And

Horror Writers and Performers Guild

on Facebook


Thank you for being understanding.

(If you asked, thank you especially from all of us. It’s not much effort on your part to check with authors whether or not they are open to your narration and you’d be surprised how many people do not bother. If you ask, I really, really appreciate being asked.)

How To Add A NoSleep Author Alliance Links Page To Your Page

What is it? – A page of links to other authors to your WordPress and Wix pages.

There is no requirement for you to add this stuff to your page, but if you have asked to be a part of the links page, it is a nice common courtesy for you to link back to those who are linking to you.

If you want to be included email me at scottsavinohorror@gmail.com … All I ask is for your patience. I have a full-time job for about 50 hours a week. Writing is my passion… But it is not how the bills get paid (yet)… So it may take a few days.

You can see what it looks like on my page here.

Why? – Because the success of this group and our writing is in everyone’s interest.

Do it or don’t. I’m not your mama. I’m not gonna tell you what to do.

You create a new top page within your site and in the HTML viewer you copy and paste the appropriate text file below. It takes less than 5 minutes. If you need help there’s a video.

The WordPress page is the first two or three minutes. The WIX page is the rest of the video because I had forgotten everything about what I was doing.

Step 1: Watch The Video.

Step 2: Get the file.

WordPress .txt file
WIX .txt file

Step 3: Follow the instructions in the video.

Step 4: Have a beer. You are done.

p.s. my accent in the video is faked. 😂😂😂😂
