Grab BAD APPLES 2 for 99¢!

I recently announced (several times at various locations on the internet) that I have a new story in an anthology called Bad Apples 3: Seven Slices of Halloween Horror. Since making this announcement, I came to the realization that folks may not be fully aware that I also have a story in a similarly-titled collection called Bad Apples 2: Six Slices of Halloween Horror. In fact, this collection contains a full-length, extra-meaty novella I wrote called Doctor Proclivity & Professor Propensity. Well, it just so happens that recently I was informed that you may go to Amazon (an online store) and download this piece of fiction--along with 5 additional Halloween tales--all for the absolute lowest price allowed: $0.99!

Taboogasm: Illustrated

Later this month, I'll be releasing a new book called Taboogasm. It's about a guy who discovers that he wins the lottery every time he plays.

 

The book is illustrated by an up-and-coming South African artist by the name of Mike Tenebrae. Here's a sample picture from Taboogasm:

 

 

 

 

 

What I'm Working On

I figure I should let people who like what I write know that I've got quite a bit of stuff written and making its way through the editing/revision pipeline.

 

First off, I've got an illustrated novella coming soon. It's called TABOOGASM, and it's about a guy who wins the lottery every time he plays.

 

There's a new Halloween horror story set to premiere in an anthology this fall.

 

I also plan on releasing a full-length fantasy novel by the end of this calendar year. This will be the first in a planned trilogy. All fantasy novels come in threes, right?

 

I've written four new novellas. The first of which, BRIDES OF HANOVER BLOCK, comes out in 2017.

 

And I'm actively writing a fantasy/adventure horror novel. I have no idea when this sucker will see the light of day. I'm at around the 10% mark with this one. Early days. But it's going well.

 

So, thanks to everyone who reads my work. Just thought I'd let you know there's much more to come.
