New Release: A Mega All-Star Cast for the LAND OF BONES (Fireside Horror) Audiobook

FIRESIDE HORROR has brought my short story collection to life. Holy hell, the amazing cast assembled by owner Joe Hempel is un-fucking-believable!

I now have an idea what it’s like to have a movie or TV show made of one of your books. I mean, the performers here bring each of these tales to life in ways that had me mesmerized. And I wrote the damn things!

I want to thank Fireside Horror for the opportunity to share these short stories in new medium, and for bringing this cast together.

On a personal note, while I absolutely love every performance in here, for someone that’s been listening to each of Matt Godfrey’s audio book versions of the Paperbacks from Horror titles, getting to listen to Matt deliver his talents to the novella included here, Too Much of a Dead Thing, was a dream come true.

You can get your audio, eBook, or paperback edition of LAND OF BONES here: LAND OF BONES

The Alien Agenda Project

37572533_294491521304492_2559004565076705280_n

2018 marked the expansion of my own publishing company, ALIEN AGENDA PUBLISHING.  I’ve used the name to self-publish pieces from time to time between traditionally published works, but this year I reached out to some fellow writers to see if they’d be interested in having some of their works under my umbrella.

SAN FRANCISCO (2)

It is definitely a hard thing to do. Gathering covers, reviews, making sure the product looks good, and making sure everyone involved is happy. It’s time consuming,but it is a true labor of love.  I haven’t figured out how much I’ll have time for in 2019, but it looks good that we will get the sequel to THE BEAST OF BRENTON WOODS from Jackson R. Thomas  (RISE), plus my sequel to my own werewolf novel, BLOOD AND RAIN.

The biggest project will be SURVIVE WITH ME, our first official anthology. Aiming for July on that one. It should include a number of great stories from my old Samhain Publishing cohorts, with each tale built around the survival theme. This one will be for charity.  Stay tuned for much more in the months to come.

SUMMER OF HORROR (2)

Other than that, I have a couple projects that I’m looking at for possible release. I just want to make sure I can put the right amount of effort into each of them. Writing and promoting my own works certainly made things a little more difficult, but it was a learning experience and one I hope will lead to more success going forward.

Today, I had my second book signing event at Barnes & Noble here at home (Augusta, Maine).  I wanted to thank the fantastic staff for having me and treating me so well. I also wanted to thank the friends and family that showed up, along with the great folks that just wandered over to ask about the book and chat horror with me.

Sales for my latest, LAND OF BONES,  were terrific, and hopefully, I made a few new fans.

Below are a few shots taken by my co-worker, Virginia.

If you haven’t picked up a copy of LAND OF BONES yet, please take a look and consider grabbing one for you or a friend. Purchase here: LAND OF BONES

Can’t wait to do this again! (Maybe closer to Halloween after my next novel, THE WINDOW, is released)

Stay tuned!

THE BLACK ROOM MANUSCRIPTS and more updates

18424739_1914123072203606_2117713776_n

Happy to share the cover for the next installment of The Sinister Horror Company’s THE BLACK ROOM MANUSCRIPTS.  I was super excited to get the invite for this one. The story I delivered, “Orson’s Gas n’ Go”, is my little tribute to Tobe Hooper. Psyched to see the roster here on the cover: Paul Tremblay, Adam Nevill, David Moody, Paul Kane, Michael Bray….pretty good group, right?

Not sure of the release day yet, so stay tuned!

Seeing this cover made my dropping off the SCARES THAT CARE convention a little easier.  Sadly, I had to make a financial decision to stay home this summer. I wish I could have come up with a way to be there, but life doesn’t always play by your rules.  I hope all my friends have a blast, and I will try to make it back soon (even if just for Scareyoke!).

I’m still hard at work on FOLLOW ME DOWN, WAITING FOR DARKNESS, and THE WINDOW. I’ll keep you posted on the progress.

Lastly, I just wanted to thank everyone that ordered print copies of BECOMING. Glad to see they all made it safely.  I also just got the new print edition of BLOOD AND RAIN up and ready to order. Jason Lynch’s new cover is amazing and this one is a beauty.

Welcome to THE HAUNTED HALLS: Matt Shaw re-releases my debut novel today exclusively for the Kindle!

13236286_10209942446624695_1625926993_n

“More than just a King knock-off, this is a truly gruesome and fun ode to the splatterpunk days that are long since gone. This is fantastic storytelling with copious amounts of sex and violence. Rolfe’s novel means more to me than just a King inspired horror yarn, this is a book that will proudly be displayed between John Skipp and Craig Spector’s seminal novel The Light at the End, and Clive Barker’s The Damnation Game. The Haunted Halls is a tremendous read that is hard to put down.” – David Sharp, Beneath the Underground

“The Bruton Inn is the scariest hotel I have read about since the Overlook…
Glenn Rolfe runs at the front of the pack with the best of today’s emerging horror authors.” – Terry M. West, Author of Heroin in the Now and the Night Things series

Glenn Rolfe author photo

“The Haunted Halls is a terrifying novel that is full of blood and guts but most importantly – a very engaging plot. Rolfe has definitely come out of the gates swinging on his debut and has established himself as one of many excellent up and coming horror writers.” – The Horror Bookshelf

“The Haunted Halls is a fantastically creepy ghost story. The setting of the Bruton Inn works very well. For me, old hotels always seem to have a sense of history and impersonal menace. Although the ghosts you find at the Bruton are anything but impersonal. They are straight up evil and out for blood.” – Horror Maiden Reviews

41nSPh2iC+L__UX250_

“Creepy, darkly humorous, and absolutely terrifying – yet smart and intelligent, not to mention character driven, there’s a lot going on here that will appeal to the masses. Part Laymon, part King, complete Rolfe, this is a book that any horror fan needs to read. Essential.” – Stuart Keane, Author of Grin and Charlotte

Much thanks to Matt Shaw for taking this  novel under his dark cloak and bringing it back to the light!

Any reviews are greatly appreciated. Hope this one bleeds your horror heart and scares the shit out of each and every one of you.

Stay tuned!
