I’ve been trying to enjoy the heck out of this summer. I hope you have, too. The wife and I are celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary on July 25th with a vow renewal. We also celebrated by going to see one of our favorite artists Kacey Musgraves in concert this past week. She rules. Besides playing in the sun with my wife and the kiddos, I have been writing and reading quite a bit. I’ve also been doing some Author Relations type things for Samhian Publishing along with helping out with their official blog. If you skip over to iHorror.com, you can read my most recent interviewees and reviews (Brian Kirk, Ronald Malfi) with more on the way!
As for my fiction…
The Haunted Halls, Abram’s Bridge, and Boom Town should be available in audio by year’s end.
Things We Fear, my next novella from Samhain Publishing, will be available in eBook in March, 2016. Things We Fear, alongside Boom Town and Abram’s Bridge will be combined in my 2nd print book for Samhain (my first novella collection), Where Nightmares Begin (also out in March).
I wrote a new novella called, The Last Show, that will be on its way to a different publisher later this month. Whether it lands with that publisher, Samhain, or I end up self-publishing it, The Last Show, will be out sometime in 2016.
I’m still revising/re-working my current WIP, a novel called, Becoming.
I’m hoping to get back to work on the next novel, Window, by the end of August.
As for my next short story collection, The World Comes Down, I read through a batch of stories I think may make the final cut last night. I’m pretty happy with the direction and hope to release it in all formats next summer.
On the to be finished list: I have two yet-to-be-titled novellas and the follow-up novel to Boom Town (Ascension Agenda). Maybe look for those in 2017.
I’ll be doing some massive blog tour (with Oh, For the Hook of a Book)/publicity stuff for Blood and Rain over the next three or four months. I’ll also be attending Horrorhound Weekend in Indianapolis, IN in September (armed with advance print copies of Blood and Rain). Come see me and a bunch of cool Samhain authors if you’re in the area.
