Older, Wiser…Grayer

Just going through the site after putting a new theme on it and started digging through the old Nitro scene material. Hard to believe almost twenty years have passed. I’m forty years old now with six and nine year old kids. Got a real job and everything. How did I get so old?

I was a kid back then and some of the writing clearly demonstrates that. What can I say? Follies of youth and all that. What I can say is that the sincerity is and always was there. While I’m older and wiser these days, I wouldn’t change any of it. I surely don’t regret any of it. Spectacular times and indelible memories.

Beyond the Badlands

Beyond the Badlands, the second installment in my Badlands Series, is now available in ebook and paperback. Here’s the blurb:

Who survived The Badlands to make it to the city by the river? Was the city truly a safe haven, or just another dead end teeming with hordes of the infected? What else is in store for those who survived?

In the dramatic second installment of Into the Badlands, the fate of the survivors and the truth about the city by the river is finally revealed. For some the journey has ended, but for those who remain, surviving the end of the world will be only the beginning.

“Beyond the Badlands” Coming Soon

The followup to my 2011 post-apocalyptic thriller Into the Badlands is undergoing a final proofread as we speak. I expect to get it back next week, after which I’ll fix any errors and then give the thing a final read through.

If all goes well, I’ll publish on or before December 1, 2013. Beyond the Badlands will be published through my LLC, available first as an ebook from all major ebooksellers. A paperback edition will follow.

The Desolate

I’m thrilled to announce the release of my latest novel, The Desolate. Here’s the blurb:

In an attempt to rebuild his life from the wreckage of a failed marriage, Scott Stevenson moves to a small town miles away from the problems of his former life. There he buys a new home, makes a friend, and even catches the eye of a local girl.

But something is very wrong in this idyllic, Midwestern town.

Mutilated bodies of young women are turning up, chilling displays of savage brutality the town has never before seen. The victims all bear a striking resemblance to the new lady in Scott’s life and, worse still, the law is more than suspicious of the “new guy in town”.

Scott soon finds himself in the way of a killer. Fearful for the safety of his girlfriend and himself, Scott must tap into his darker side, his evil side, in order to survive.

There he’ll discover a path to a place more desolate than he could ever imagine.

The Desolate is a fast-paced horror thriller filled with murder, suspense, mystery, and deception. This book contains strong language and graphic scenes of violence. It is recommended only for mature audiences.

The book is available now for the Kindle and in paperback. Check it out if you get the chance!

My Kindle Touch 3G

I finally got around to buying a Kindle.

I’ve been reading on PDAs and the iPhone for years now; I haven’t picked up a paper book since 2006. I liked that I could carry multiple books on a single device and that I could read anywhere with it.

But once I got the Kindle I realized it’s an even better experience.

It’s everything that’s good about a paper book, without the bad. I ponied up for the 3G model so I could connect anywhere. No monthly fee. Stores 3000 books, 1-2 months battery life (with wifi off). The touch screen is incredibly intuitive and easy to use. The display is great; it reads like paper.

I’ve bought quite a few new books after I bought this and I’ve finished reading several more over the past two weeks. I’m reading like I used to fifteen years ago: voraciously.

And I’m also excited to be publishing on it as well.

I couldn’t be happier with this reader.

Walking At Night: A Collection of Horror

I’m happy to announce that I recently published a collection of short horror stories.  It weighs in around 56,000 words (approximately the length of a short novel).  This is particularly rewarding since some of these stories and ideas are ten or fifteen years old and are finally now seeing the light of day.  I had a lot of fun writing and publishing this.  So if horror is your thing, you might want to check it out.  It’s available for the Kindle and the Nook eReaders.
