An End to a Beginning - A blurb of words...

I made an announcement earlier today, that I was offered a contract on a short novella I shopped around last year.  This little story has seen so much hardship.  To date, I've gotten around 25-30 rejections on it, people saying "Not quite our style!".  Which is fine, that's great.  My work, it ain't for everyone!  That's for sure.

But, perseverance pays, literally $$.  All it took was one guy, in one office, reading one story, my story, and that was it.  This will be my fifth book, and I couldn't be more excited.

I promised a blurb, and here it is.  The release can be expected in early 2014.  Enjoy!

"You're standing outside the house of the man who helped murder your eight-year-old son.  You have a gun in your pocket, one you've never fired before, one you've never had to.  You're nervous, and you threw up a few minutes ago.  Some of it is still on your sleeve.  You've heard the body has a strange way of coping with things that don't agree with it and, well, this is definitely one of 'em.  

Right now, you're in Brian's shoes, and he's been waiting five long years to be where he is at this very moment.  He's dreamed, fantasized about it.  He's planned this.  Not in a sick way, at least he'd say so, but in the way a pencil eraser makes mistakes disappear.  He wants to make it right, and even worse, as the night takes him from a dilapidated drug house to a shady motel outside of Toledo, Ohio, he already knows where everything will end."

On Sale Now

These two treats are on sale now, Here! and Here!, in both paperback and eBook formats.

Give 'em a peek!

These two were labors of love.  Redial, my first novel, took me nearly a year from start to finish.  Lonely Moon, a fun write, took me half the time.  Both are faves, both filled with wondrous characters and adventures.

Get your copies today.

Progress Report - Hot Off the Presses

I know it's been a while, and I feel like I've been saying that a lot lately, sheesh.  It HAS been a while, and I'd say I'm sorry, but I'm not, and that's okay too.

I wanted to pop in and give everyone a brief update on the projects I'm working on.  Not much has changed except for the fact that I recently uprooted my life from SMALLTOWN, ILLINOIS and hopped on over to bitchy LOS ANGELES, CA.  What am I saying?  I love this city...

What can you expect from me in the coming months?  Well, I'm not really sure.  I wanna' say that my novella will be finished, but I can't say for certain that it will.  What I CAN promise you is some really cool cover artwork, some excerpts from coming works, and a pledge to diligently work harder and with more commitment on said projects.

Here's where I'm at, right meow with the Novella.

When Angels Scream (Novella)

I'm not proud of that measly 11%, but I'm proud of how the story is coming along so far, and how much I love it.  It's good, Science Fiction-Horror.  Space Horror, if you will, with strong characters. 

Check back periodically for updates and more fun stuff to come :)

If you've seen the movie Insidious...'ll understand just how creepy this song is.  A truly powerful scene.
