My 2009 release DEPRAVED is unquestionably my most popular novel. It features backwoods cannibals, mutants, a demon, chainsaw madness, loads of action, and some of the most messed-up horror scenes ever committed to paper (virtual or otherwise). Yes, it's been around a while now, but I have a reason for highlighting this particular book again. I am currently some 30,000 words into writing a sequel that will deliver at least as much over-the-top horror madness as the first book. In the meantime, if you haven't read the original, it's easy to catch up. It's just $2.99 on Kindle.

Bitter Ale hardcover line

In my previous post I announced the publication of a new novel called 68 Kill in ebook and paperback editions.  My intent was for 68 Kill to be the first in an ongoing series of original short novels I will self-release every few months.

All of that is still very much part of my overall plan, but there is now a new wrinkle.  Thanks to Thunderstorm Books, I now have my own publishing line/imprint devoted to producing collectible hardcover limited editions of these short novels.  The line is called Bitter Ale, which is derived from the Bitter Ale Press name I've used for my ebooks.  These hardcover editions will be produced on an accelerated basis to roughly coincide with the release of the ebook and paperback editions.

Let me tell you upfront that I realize these limited hardcovers are not cheap and won't be affordable for everyone.  But there will always be an affordable edition of each of these short novels for anyone who wants to read them.  In most cases, my ebook and paperback releases will actually precede the hardcover release.  The serious collectors who do opt to buy the hardcovers likely already know that Thunderstorm Books is known for producing high quality, attractive collectible books.

The official Bitter Ale announcement actually came via Brian Keene's site yesterday.  Read Brian's blog on the subject at the link below:

68 Kill on Kindle

My new novel 68 Kill is now available on Kindle:

68 Kill on Kindle

A Nook edition is forthcoming.  A paperback edition will be available on Amazon in a few days.  For those who don't want to wait, it's already available via the CreateSpace store:

68 Kill paperback

A bit of background on 68 Kill, since I haven't really talked about it here. A good 90% of my reading the last several years has been pulp crime fiction from the 40's and 50's. Some of those guys would churn out a ton of product, a few of them knocking out a novel a month. I have decided to emulate the old pulp writers by attempting to produce a new short novel every few months. 68 Kill is the first of these books. My plan is for them all to be between 50,000 and 60,000 words in length, though 68 Kill actually came in at a bit over 61,000 words. I also intend to make every title in this series available in paperback for that group of readers who still prefer that format.

Me on Tumblr

I created this page two years and never posted a thing to it until yesterday.  I'd forgotten it even existed...until Tumblr sent me a reminder email.  I will now use to post random stuff now and then, which may or may not have anything to do with my writing.  Follow if you like.

Grimm Awakening ebook

Grimm Awakening, my novel about occult detective Jack Grimm, is available on Kindle for the first time.  Price is just $2.99.  To be clear, this is the full-length novel version of the story, not the much shorter version that appeared in chapbook format a decade ago.  Jack wakes up in a seedy motel room in Hell, and that's just the beginning of his troubles.  A Nook edition is forthcoming.  Before anyone asks, the only print edition of this novel is the limited hardcover from Thunderstorm Books.  Check for availability.  There may still be a few left of the Hard Rain edition.

Grimm Awakening now available

The Black Voltage and Hard Rain limited hardcover editions of my novel Grimm Awakening have been released by Thunderstorm Books.  See the link below to order and read the difference between the two editions:

Grimm Awakening from Thunderstorm Books

Long-time readers may recall that Undaunted Press released a novelette version of Grimm Awakening as a chapbook nearly a decade ago.  That shorter version is long out of print and is hard to find.  This Thunderstorm release is the never before published full-length novel version.  Also, the original material has been revised.

Jack Grimm is a hard-drinking, chain-smoking, all around hard-living private investigator who specializes in crimes of a supernatural nature.  Shapeshifting hellhound Lucien joins his team as they travel from Hell to Las Vegas in a fight against evil that plays out against a background of glitz, gangsters, and gunfire.

In other news, Queen of Blood (the sequel to House of Blood) is now available in Kindle format.  Nook edition to follow in a few days.  This completes my quest to make all my old books available via Kindle.

Rockin' at The Late Night Horror Show

Wednesday 13 has been one of my favorite rock and rollers for about ten years now.  Former lead singer of both the Frankenstein Drag Queens From Planet 13 and the Murderdolls, Wednesday 13 has released several kickass albums as a solo act.  My favorite is his solo debut, Transylvania 90210, but his new release, The Dixie Dead, is right up there with it.  It rocks hard and is a lot of fun.  Check it out.

Last night my good friend Tod Clark attended a Wednesday 13 show in El Paso, TX.  After the show, he was able to meet Wednesday and pass along a signed copy of my new novel The Late Night Horror Show.  The picture above is from that event and was taken by Tod himself.  Pretty fucking cool, eh?

Also, the paperback edition of The Late Night Horror Show is now in stock and shipping from Amazon:

This leaves Queen of Blood as the last of my old Leisure Books titles still not on Kindle, but that one is in the works as well and should hopefully be available in the next week or so.
