"Zombie Kong" Unleashed on Kindle

"Zombie Kong" made its debut on Amazon's Kindle. Quality paperback still to come. Very nice TOC includes: David Niall Wilson, Simon McCaffery, Amanda C. Davis and other established and up-and-coming authors.

Zombies are bad. Zombie Kong is worse. Much worse!

If the insensitive, inane and idiotic comments some people post online every time there is a tragic news story infuriate you as much as they do me, you will appreciate my included story, "The Elephant in the Room".

Third Appearance in Morpheus Tales

The latest issue of Morpheus Tales includes my short story "Solitary Man". This marks my third appearance in Morpheus Tales, a great British indie horror mag. Always good art work and a nice variety of established and up-and-coming horror authors. To order a copy, follow this link.

A best-selling author sits on death row, but none of his fans know it. For this author, writing is something much more than force of habit. Find out why as a death row prison guard explains it all to his comatose son in "Solitary Man".

Blood Lite 3: Aftertaste Sneak Peek of Cover

This third installment in the BLOOD LITE humorous horror anthology series, is edited by Kevin J. Anderson for the Horror Writers Association, and contains 30 all-original stories by: Jim Butcher, Kelley Armstrong, Heather Graham, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Christopher Golden, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Jeff Strand, Lisa Morton, Ken Lillie-Paetz (who mentored me in the HWA) and the late L.A. Banks.

I am very fortunate to be able to count this as my first professional sale! My story "A Misadventure to Call Your Own" will be included. I just proofed the galley, sent three minor changes and a new bio to Simon & Schuster, and realized my story is twenty-two pages! Available this summer from Pocket Books. Thanks to Kevin J. Anderson for selecting my story for inclusion.
