I have been told I need to post links to my books 
more often.

Actually, I think most of you probably already 
have the books, so the links are far from 
necessary additions.

Still, the person who was kind enough to make that
recommendation sells 
substantial amount of books ... 
more than myself.  

Who am I to argue with success?

So, here is a link to all my books, as well as 
each book individually 
(If for some reason you like clicking on links.) 
That is a fetish I never got into 
 "Hey" do your own thing!"

My first novel  Horror Across The Alley

Novel Number Two  They Lurk In Summer

Short Story Collection

My Latest w/ Charles Lynne

So, there you have it. Click away to your heart's desire. 

**Warning: Doing so around midnight 
may awaken spirits you don't want to meet ...
or do you?

A Quick Update

A quick update.  My novella is currently being edited. It will be the first book of a two or three book series, dependent upon public acceptance. I say this as it is not really a book of horror. It is more of a graphic thriller entailing murder without remorse, deceit, and werewolves.

I hesitate to go into much more detail at this point as the book has not been sent to any publisher as of yet for review. Those who have had the advantage of being advance readers have said it to be action-packed and filled with unthinkable twists. There have also been comments stating they were unable to put it down and can't wait on the second book to magically appear in front of them. 

I have just finished a short story to submit for a dark erotica anthology that will be released sometime next year. It, too, is awaiting editing completion before submission.

Another author, Charles Lynn and myself are co-writing another book of short stories at the current time. This book's first draft is almost complete. The rewrites and self-editing lie ahead before professional editing is called upon.

In addition, I am in the midst of writing another novella, as well as a full-length novel. Good things are beginning to happen as my author page on Facebook now has well over a thousand followers and a group of well-known horror writers is accepting me as one of their own and taking me under their wing.

The future is busy but very bright. As always, I sincerely appreciate your support.

Many Thanks,

It's Time To Relax: Scarefest 2018 Is Over

Scarefest 2018 is over. Amid the grumbling from many of the vendors, I take away many positives from
this experience.

1) Don't always believe what the promoters tell you in advance as they are prone to change things at any time for the worse. 

2) Making friends is still the most important part of any gathering. I've met so many good people that are willing to help me along the way that I'm astonished. Fellow authors offering assistance in so many ways, vendors of all types of merchandise that included me in their group and treated me with tremendous respect and friendship, and fans willing to take a chance on a virtual unknown ... purchase his book ... and request he sign their copy as if he was a somebody.

3) There are many that still believe being rude is the way to go when it comes to dealing with people, and are oblivious to the comments about them I made as they walked away. (I know, but I couldn't help it. You know sarcasm is my cup of tea.)

4) My wife can indeed put up with my witty comments that sometimes sting for three days straight (although I wouldn't trust her to make it through a fourth).

In addition, I ended up in the upper middle of vendors of books and their sales totals with 23 books sold. I was told by several there that was excellent for my first show, not knowing the tricks they'd learned and
having a terrible location tossed at me, with jewelry and poster booths surrounding me, while many of the other book vendors were closer together and able to draw more of that type of audience. Having taught sales training for years, I quickly developed a sales pitch that worked well on those that I could get to stop for a minute and listen. Still, the new contacts, friends, and fans I've made are worth their weight in gold.

And, last but not least, I managed to get something I've been after forever. In its original packaging, never having been opened, I managed to get an antique "Chucky" doll (*See photo below). It will stay in that packaging unless he breaks out and decides that my wife and I should become his victims. I keep my fingers crossed he does not. Since these haven't been manufactured in years, this will only go up in value. A strange investment, I know, but shouldn't every horror author have one?

Scarefest 2018 ... Come See Me!

September 14th-16th is coming ever so fast.

(Well, it's the same as always, technically speaking, but it seems faster than normal.)

Anyway, Scarefest 2018 promises to be a fantastic event.  Lots of special guests, many of my writer friends, and all sorts of speaking engagements and art booths to partake.  Don't do anything but make plans to attend.

It will be worth it, believe me!

Look for me behind these signs.

and this table cover
(it will be straightened out then)

My wife and I will be wearing these T-shirts.

So, really now, if your eyes are open, you'll find us!

Really, you will!

See you there!!!
