To the delight of many, I’ve been fairly quiet on here since the start of the year. No, it’s not because I’ve run out of topics to rant and rave about. I haven’t given up on sharing writerly advice, poetry, or other works. I haven’t been walled-in behind bricks and mortar in the basement.
I’ve simply been a very
naughty busy boy.
Book I of The Human-Undead War Trilogy released a few weeks ago, and I’ve been reaching out to reviewers, local newspapers, convention sites, and other avenues in a vain attempt to remain relevant.
But that’s not all I’ve been working on…
What Else to Expect in 2016
At least 4 of my short stories will appear in anthologies slated for publication sometime this year:
-“Layer” — Rejected for Content 4: Highway to Hell (JEA/Wetworks)
-“Uncaged” — Edge of Darkness (Dark Chapter Press)
-“Just A Tip” — Here to Serve You (Alucard Press)
-Tentative title “Familiar Scents” — Secret anthology; to be announced
I also have 1 more short still awaiting verdict from a publisher, and I intend to crank out a few more toward the end of the year.
In addition, I’ll be a co-editor on two anthologies: What Goes Around (Great British Horror/KnightWatch Press), and the other is still being kept secret. I’ll tease you quick: It’s being published by a big name in the horror world, will include all-female contributors, and all proceeds will be donated to a great cause.
Oh yeah, and Book II of The Human-Undead War Trilogy is still slated for a November release. I’ve also been ramping up output on Book III.
But What Does It All Mean, Man?!?
- Save that money you intended to spend on 8-balls and Mollies. You’ve got books to buy, jackass.
- Sleep is for pussies.
- I’m like genital herpes: If you thought you could get rid of me, think again.
What, you didn’t believe me when I said I was going to make 2016 my bitch?
Stay tuned. More randomosity is coming soon.
