Neon Dies At Dawn Is Now Available

Hi and welcome back to my early-to-mid-2000s era website! My latest book is now available in paperback and Kindle. The audiobook is in production (no, I'm not narrating it) and I think the finished version will be one of the best interpretations I've had of my books.

A retired man loses his wife to cancer and his daughter to a mysterious accident. He mostly lives alone, occasionally taking care of his grandson. When he sees a black van drive over a young woman before disappearing into the dark of night, he loses what little faith he has in humanity and discovers a sense of vengeful purpose. Now he's in danger of losing himself to long-repressed demons and a terrifyingly bizarre world that has always surrounded him, a world he's spent his entire life keeping at a distance.

Happy Halloween

From now through Halloween, all titles at the Grindhouse/Atlatl Press store are 40% off. This includes my two latest books from earlier in the year, Failure As a Way of Life and Irrationalia, among many others. Quanitities are limited and once they're gone, they're gone! I've had a number of my paperbacks removed from print. While everything will remain available for Kindle and on audio, this is probably the last chance to pick up:

Hi I'm a Social Disease: Horror Stories
Pray You Die Alone: Horror Stories
Sunruined: Horror Stories
The Warm Glow of Happy Homes
and Squirm With Me

Welcome to Grindhouse's Sweaty Summer

It's going to be a sweaty summer at Grindhouse Press!

Full Brutal by Kristopher Triana was released on June 12. It's a darkly violent take on the teen social ladder. Think Mean Girls meets American Psycho. One of the best horror novels I've read in years.

My latest, Irrationalia, will be released on June 22. The less said about it the better. I'm celebrating its release by making ALL MY OTHER KINDLE TITLES 99 cents (starting June 21). I was able to move out of the sad suburbs, shake off much of the anxious weight that homeownership was causing me, and move into an apartment with my wonderful girlfriend in an area we find way less soul deadening. Many of you have been buying my books for a decade and we probably couldn't have done it so quickly without your support. So if there's anything of mine you've been waiting to pick up, now is the time. This probably won't happen again for a while. Or maybe it will. Who the fuck knows?

Following on the heels of Irrationalia is C.V. Hunt's latest, Cockblock (June 25), an incredibly brave and unflinching look at an alternate reality that seemed way more unbelievable only a couple short years ago. It's raw, honest, and imaginative. If you're already a fan, you still won't be prepared for this one.

Next comes Scummer by John Wayne Comunale (June 29), a Bukowski-esque journey into the dumpster located in the worst part of an already bad town. This is a book where you know the protagonist is going to make the worst decisions possible and find yourself encouraging him down that road of self-discovery. It makes saying, "Fuck it," look really fun ... or horrible and scary.

After reading those, you might be ready for something more glamorous. And what could be more glamorous than a book about the exotic world of porn? Never fear, Scott Cole's Triple Axe (July 2) will take you there. There's just one problem for porn star Jesse Jinx--a deranged serial killer is targeting adult entertainers and the authorities are refusing to help. This one is quick, fun, and highly entertaining.

Lastly, if you'd like a chance to meet us all in person, we'll all be at Scares That Care in Williamsburg, Virginia, August 3-5, along with a slew of other great horror writers. Grindhouse Press will have a table on the first floor, so make sure to stop by and say hi.

New Book, Newer Book, Appearances

Failure As a Way of Life came out in March. Below are some links to where you can pick it up:


Paperback (signed)



Irrationalia will be coming out June 22, 2018. Pre-order the Kindle version HERE.

When three friends receive a startlingly incoherent invitation to a “Reeyoonyun” they seize upon it to break up the monotony of their middle-aged lives. The host, one of their old friends, seems battered and out of it. The maid acts like a weird robot. The host confesses the house might not actually be his. Over the course of a tense, bizarre evening, the friends soon realize the invitation was to something much more sinister than a reunion: the past. Twenty-five years ago, in 1993, the group experienced something on a summer night in the woods. They’ve done their best to forget about it but the repercussions of it have sent shockwaves through each of their lives. Now they must decide if they want to leave the past buried or dig it up and confront it and all of its mind-bending, life-altering horror.

I will be attending a few conventions/events this summer. Stop by and say hi or pick up a book from Grindhouse or Atlatl!

Pre-Order This Town Needs a Monster

Bathos! Crippling ennui! Mind-numbing drudgery!

Brad Renfield is a white, middle-aged, lower middle class, Midwestern man stuck in Gethsemane, Ohio. Most of his friends have either died or moved away and his one remaining friend is so depressed he’s on the brink of suicide. Brad hasn’t really given much thought to the chasm of emptiness within him. He’s mostly been a loner, content with his job and his tiny apartment. He’s never thought much about being part of something. He’s never really thought about the bigger picture. Until he meets a beautiful (and possibly psychotic) girl named Dawn. Dawn leads Brad into a vicious world as hedonistically carnal as it is brutal, forcing Brad to decide if he’s going to dig deep within himself and continue to resist the community he’s remained apart from his entire life or embrace it and accept his new reality.

Pre-order This Town Needs a Monster. Available May 16, 2017!




I'm working on it!

New Stuff

Hi folks. Thanks for sticking around. I know I haven't posted much on here but it's mostly because I've been really super busy for like the past three years or so. Mainly with writing and publishing and recording audiobooks and moving. I seem to have done quite a bit of that the past few years and will probably continue to do it.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that I have a new book out. It's called Squirm With Me. It's available as a paperback, Kindle, and audiobook narrated by me. I narrated it in my attic. I'm not really a producer or sound engineer or anything so I don't really know what I'm doing. It's like that with most things. Hopefully it doesn't suck too bad.

I also narrated a book called Ritualistic Human Sacrifice by C.V. Hunt. This was a book I really enjoyed reading and publishing. Check it out if you like social satire that devolves into a gooey, transgressive nightmare while still maintaining a certain level of hilarity.

I have a story in an anthology called If I Only Had Cocaine, and Other Drug Stories. It's FREE for the next few days. It also contains stories by Jerry Stahl, Marya Hornbacher, Wayne Gladstone, Sam Greenspan, Mark Jeffrey, Andrew Shaffer, Douglas Lain, and Ben Adelman. Edited by Will Paoletto.

I also realized I never posted a "Books Read 2015" list. If you're interested in what I'm reading, you can follow me on Goodreads.
