Yellow Springs Book Fair, Audiobooks, New Book Coming Soon

I'll be attending the Yellow Springs Book Fair on August 16 with authors C.V. Hunt and D. Harlan Wilson. We'll have copies of all of our books along with other books in the Grindhouse Press, Atlatl Press, and Anti-Oedipus Press catalogues. Come out and say hi if you're in the area. We'll be hot and tired and starved for attention.

If you like audiobooks, all of mine are now available on Audible. I'm narrating most of them. One reviewer said I sound like a bored robot. That's probably a bad thing. This is what I spent most of last fall and into this winter doing. It was grueling.

I have a new book called CREEP HOUSE scheduled to come out this October through Grindhouse Press. It will be another collection of horror stories. I should have a cover and table of contents to post soon.

As always, thanks for your continued interest. I'm going back to work now.

Sociopaths in Love

Coming October 2013


Boy meets girl. They fall in love. They move in together and start a new life. They're beautiful and they have new things, expensive things, the best of everything, whatever they want. But that's only the surface. Beneath the surface is something much different. Something much darker. Theirs is a love like no other and only one of them will survive it.

*The cover image is by the amazing Dorothy Bhawl.
