It’s been awhile since I’ve posted on here, so I thought I’d offer an update on everything I have going on…
First of all, the publisher responsible for my three novels, (Bone White, Blackened, The Winding Down Hours) has been purchased by Hydra Publications. While this can sometimes produce headaches and uncertainty, the transition thus far has been seamless. The contracts are still in place and will remain so for their duration, if not longer. I’m proud to say I am now part of the Hydra family.
Since its release in the fall of 2017, sales for The Winding Down Hours have been very (and I can’t stress this enough) very slow. I can only assume that my readers have spoken, and they’re telling me they prefer I scare the crap out of them. Well, let me tell you, the message is coming through loud and clear. (But that doesn’t mean I won’t strap on my literary shoes again sometime down the road.)
What it does mean, however, is that right now, I have a steady output of horror coming your way. I don’t have a release date yet, but my collection of short stories titled, Let There Be Dark, will be released by Hydra Publications probably late spring/early summer. I can’t wait to share it with you all, and look to do some serious promotion for it once it’s out. I even have a cool contest for you all as we get closer to release date. The synopsis will go something like:
“From an oddities shop with a collection too macabre for even the most hardcore of enthusiasts, to a country road bridge with a horrifying past, Let There Be Dark is the first horror short story collection from the author of the horrifying novel, Bone White. Between these covers you will encounter decades-old ghosts, blood thirsty creatures and humans with more than one screw loose. These eight short stories are sure to help you discover where your threshold for fear lies.”
Finally, the first draft of my next horror novel is approximately 90% complete. Once it is finished and has undergone a whole lot of criticism from a select few readers and 7 or 8 revisions, I hope to have it ready for submission by the end of the year. Fingers crossed. As for the title and what it’s about, you’ll just have to stay tuned…
‘Til next time, my friends.
