Iron Dead
Feb 032016

Sorry for the lack of update (or writing progress) recently, but January has turned out to be the worst month I’ve had in a long time.

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.

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.
