Iron Dead

I began offering selections from my library for sale on Amazon with the intent of testing the waters… to see if it was worth my time to write new stories. From the start, I knew I couldn’t base any conclusions on just a few books; I’d need to see results from five to ten books before I could make any kind of decision. I’ve only got three books for sale now, but I figure some people might be interested in what I’ve seen so far. If you’re one of those people, then read on.

Happy Halloween, everybody.
However you celebrate (or don’t), stay safe.

I’m not the kind of guy that dresses up for Halloween, but if I WAS, I’d be damn mad that somebody else thought of this before me: The Thing

You were warned.

I’m not going to go back and actually look, but I’m pretty sure I said that my list of “upcoming projects” was tentative and subject to change.

Wellll… it changed.

Not to worry.   As changes go, this one is pretty good.

My current project is STILL the “Welcome to October Falls” anthology.   However, I felt that I needed to publish something sooner in celebration of my favorite holiday.  There was no way I could finish the October Falls anthology by Halloween, but I most certainly could grab some of my other short stories and make a mini-anthology over a long weekend and a few late nights.     So that’s what I did.

My newest Amazon publication is “The Henry County Horror and Other Short, Brutish Tales“.

Quite a few weeks ago I announced that I was converting the old Book of Dark Places multimedia files to video and uploading them to YouTube, beginning with the very first story: Damnation Denied.    That project has been chugging along silently and without fanfare since then.   Tonight, however, I uploaded the final video in the Damnation Denied series and thought I’d mention it.

Some author’s notes follow.

In just under two months I plan to have my next book available on Amazon.    This one will be an anthology of my “October Falls” horror stories, anchored by the novella “The Inquisitors”.   Since there really isn’t that much October Falls to go around, I’ll be writing at least one new tale for the collection.

Okay, so now what the hell is “October Falls”?

The latest of my stories to hit Amazon is Court of the Abominatrix.  It’s another fast-paced horror serial in the same style as Iron Dead, but with less sci-fi and a lot more “OMGWTF!?”

Seriously, while this isn’t the darkest story I’ve written, but it is by far the strangest.   The author’s notes in the ebook version go into some depth about what I was trying to achieve and why this might also be the most confusing of my stories… and the most important.

I just realized it’s been a while since my last post.   I figure it’s time to let folks know what I’ve been up to before they start thinking I’ve been sitting on my ass playing video games.

Actually, I HAVE been sitting on my ass playing video games.   A lot.

I’ve also been editing the next story for Amazon, which is going to be “Court of the Abominatrix”.
