Hungry Shadow Press has another killer anthology coming out! This one features stories about the first minutes of the apocalypse, the immediate seconds after the shit hits the fan. I have a story in it title When the Horizon Burns, and it’s the darkest thing I’ve written (so far at least). Plus, stories from Taryn Martinez, Carson Winter, D. Matthew Urban, Sara Tantlinger, Alex Fox, Tiffany Michelle Brown, Angela Sylvaine, M. Lopes da Silva, Andrew Cull, Ruth Anna Evans, Wendy N. Wagner, Gwendolyn Kiste, Olen Crowe, Brittany Johnston, Elou Carroll, Nick Bouchard, L. Marie Wood, W. Dale Jordan, Elford Alley, Chris Mason, Matthew M. Bartlett, Madison McSweeney, Rae Knowles, RJ Joseph, Emma E. Murray, V. Castro, Eoin Murphy, and J.A.W. McCarthy.
That’s a lot of awesome! You can preorder right here. Plus, that cover. Damn. Brandon Applegate edits a mean anthology, and you should read his short story collection too.
I’ve been dying to check out this anthology and it’s finally here! This contains my story The Knock-Knock House, but it also contains fiction and nonfiction from an incredible selection of authors. It’s also edited by Joe Sullivan and Joe Provine, who have been assembling this for the past year-and-a-half. Provine has written a ton of Oklahoma ghost story books, which I have obsessively read since relocating there. Seriously, if you love ghost stories, spooky folklore, and urban legends, this is a must-read.
My 100-word horror story The Wraith was featured in Hungary Shadow Press’ Deadly Drabbles Tuesday! The story is about the price of coming back from the dead. So proud to be included. Keep an eye on Hungry Shadw Press, they’re also putting out incredible work!
After a brief hiatus, my latest horror collection We Will Find a Place for You is back! 23 tales of terror, no filler and no mercy. You can pick up the Velox Books edition in ebook and paperback right here. It was reviewed in Scream Magazine by Sadie Hartmann, what else do you people need?!
This was a great interview! I got to talk to the great Kimberly Davis Basso (author of the awesome collection Next Door) about my new book, ghost stories (and experiences), and a little about self-publishing. Had a lot of fun, here’s a link!
I was on this podcast to talk Halloween and read my story A Texas Halloween. But then Damien Casey, Kyra Torres, Adam Hulse, and I all sit back and just let this one go completely off the rails. Damien felt weird in a parking lot, and it just got stranger from there. Maybe one of my all-time favorite podcast experiences. Check it out!
It’s here! You can officially pick up Apartment 239 in ebook and paperback. It’s the story of Abe, a doomed parks department employee reeling from a recent tragedy, who finds himself with three days to solve the mysterious disappearances in Marble Springs before he joins them.
You can pick up the ebook and paperback from Amazon and Barnes & Noble
Ebooks are also available at Barnes and Noble, Scribd, Apple Books, Kobo, and more!
Also, Google Play!
Of course, you can also order an ebook right here at this website!
When I brought the cover to Kristina (@nwreader) to create a book wrap, she told me she had a few ideas. The result is a significantly cooler cover, and a killer wrap. I mean, just look at it! A thing of absolute beauty. Seriously, I can’t wait for people to read it. The very first notes of what would become this book were written in Oklahoma, when I lived there briefly in the early 2000s. Now that I’m back, it’s finally going to be available to read. A weird full circle thing, I guess? Anyway, you can preorder it on Amazon, Google Play, and pretty much everywhere else.
William Sterling, the horror author who brought us Synapse, has a podcast called Killer Mediums. On each episode, he talks to a different horror author about a specific genre, for example, horror comedies with the great Damien Casey. With me, we talked about the “cabin in the woods” subgenre, from Evil Dead and well, The Cabin in the Woods, to the Friday the 13th game and more. A fun time was had by all, damn it!
Today is the day! The new Velox Books edition of The Last Night in the Damned House has been released! This one features three stories about three generations battling an entity in a haunted farmhouse. There is also Hope, a four-part story that once graced the No Sleep subreddit. Many of these tales were written during a sleepless stretch of 2015/16, when I was working full time and being a stay-at-home dad. Total exhaustion can pay dividends if you survive it. Ha. A couple were added to the TOC in 2019 and 2020. There are nine stories to entertain, and to terrify. I hope you enjoy them!
