A Looking In View is available in paperback
You can order paperbacks for my new anthology, A Looking In View, now. They should arrive just in time for publication date May 16th. Ebook will upload on that date if you've pre-ordered.
I've been sharing excerpts from selected stories over on my Facebook page. Feel free to check them out if you feel so inclined:
In other news, M.N. Arzu has released the latest book in her Under Series (A Merfolk Story). You can get that here:
Richard Chizmar and Stephen King's new book, Gwendy's Button Box, is out May 16th, too, and the reviews have been stellar. I'll be taking a break in my trek through The Dark Tower Series (I'm on Wizard and Glass) to read it.
Brian Keene will be releasing his non-fiction essay collection through Cemetery Dance soon. It's called End of the Road and from what he shared on CD's website through weekly columns, readers will be in for an emotional experience.
I had the chance to pick Lincoln Cole's brain a little about his next project(s). His next few book ideas are remarkable and I can't wait to read them.
You can check him out here.
The man knows no boundaries in genre. As you will see upon visiting his author page. He's prolific and his prose is hammered with purpose.
You may have to copy/paste some of these (or all of these) links. My apologies for that. I'm still trying to get the hang of this.
Be well and respect your fellow kind (and animals).

September is my favorite month. It's the month we say goodbye to summer and hello to the best season of the year, Fall. My birthday also falls (get it?) in September. So does Stephen King's. It's today actually. He turns 70.
I've finished a short story called The Last One Out this week for an open call submission in the Fall. I've also completed another one called Never Tear Us Apart. I need to review both one final time before they'll be ready to submit. I hope they're good enough to sell to the magazines I have in mind.
Sometimes you have to write all the way through a story in order to get it all down. Then break out your pick-axe and chip away until the damn thing makes sense. Only me? So be it.
I've heard that Cemetery Dance Magazine will have open submissions this Autumn. Since learning this, I have started a short story called Never Tear Us Apart. It's just under 3,000 words right now and is in the early stages of creation, aka the first draft.
Lincoln Cole is trying is hand at publishing with Kindle Scout again. His first and only published work with them is Raven's Peak, a modern-action-horror and also the first of the Raven's Series. This time around, he's submitted another horror, The Everett Exorcism. There are only 10 days left to nominate it. Supporting him would mean a great deal to the both of us.
