This week'ssubkect is whatever strikes our fancy, an as this is almost out, it's my fancy.
HALLOWEEN NIGHTS is the anthology that almostr wasn't.
ery seriousoy, almost didn't come up with the lust of possible authors, almost didn't ask if they were interested, almost didn;t ask the cover artiwst, the amazing DanB Brereton for cover art...
But here we are. Two months )maybe three) later, the stories are all in, the layout is complete and likely being uploaded today, tomorrow latest. All hecause I love Halloween and was thinking it woud be kind of cool if the entire book of stories was done by people who wouod actually be at an event where I wanted the book to debut. Every contriutor was supposed to be there. And then Vocid reared its ugly hed nd the event was cancelled. and because most of the work was already done, I decided to come out with the book anyways.
And here's the basics:
A Blurb, simly because I wanted to share the book with one of my writer friends and he decided to read it in one night and then decided to offer a blurb.
“Halloween Nights is a brilliant and disturbing collection of horror tales by some of today’s finest writers. Chilling, unexpected, and unnerving fun!” -Jonthan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of RELENTLESS and V-WARS

Coming Soon to a Bookstore Near YOU!
I write fiction, a little of everything and a lot of horror. I've written novels, comic books, roleplaying game supplements, short stories, novellas and oodles of essays on whatever strikes my fancy. That might change depending on my mood and the publishing industry. Things are getting stranger and stranger in the wonderful world of publishing and that means I get to have fun sorting through the chaos (with all the other writer-types). I have a website. This isn't it. This is where you can likely expect me to talk about upcoming projects and occasionally expect a rant or two. Not too many rants. Those take a lot of energy. In addition to writing I work as a barista, because I still haven't decided to quit my day job. Opinions are always welcome.
