Quick update for y’all. WE CAME BACK is officially available for your consumption. If you’ve been following my ramblings about this book, then you know I’m quite proud of it but also that I’m donating all of my royalties to The American Cancer Society in honor of my old man, who passed away when I was a wee lad (wee lad = high school senior). This is my most personal book to date and parts were difficult to write (as in nearly-driving-me-insane difficult). I hope you’ll check it out and help spread the word. I’d very much like for it to succeed for obvious reasons.
Here’s a little interview thingy I did over on Sinister Grin in which I discussed the DREAM WOODS cover. It’s my favorite cover of mine thus far and it’s received a good amount of attention since its reveal earlier this year. Click here and get all the dirty little secrets behind that pesky bear.

Without further ado, feast your eyes on some shadowy goodness.
Is it a real word? I’m not sure but if it isn’t, it ought to be. Out now is the second in the FOSSIL LAKE anthology series, which features stories from Ken Goldman, John M. McIlveen, Doug Rinaldi, and many more awesome folks. Did I mention it’s edited by the wonderful Christine Morgan and contains a foreword from some guy named Brian Keene? Also, it features my short story “Critter Marrow,” which is about one of the most terrifying subjects of all: junk mail. The ebook and paperback are both available now from Amazon. Go grab them while they’re hot, though they’ll probably cool down by the time your receive your copies.
Leading up to the anthology’s release, Christine posted contributor interviews each day. You can find mine here if you’re so inclined but please read through all of them while you’re at it. These are some talented folks and each deserves your time.
