Bram Stoker Award Recommendations List: Black Friday

Hey everyone,

It looks like The Horror Writer’s Association has their 2017 Bram Stoker Award Recommendations List up. On it, you’ll find my novel BLACK FRIDAY, along with novels like BORNE by Jeff VanderMeer and MONSTROSITY by Tim Curran.

It’s nice to be on the list.

If you have not checked out BLACK FRIDAY yet, it’s now out (and soon to be an audiobook).

Newsletter giveaway: The Gloaming

Hey everyone, I’ve got a promotion brewing for my newsletter. I’ll be giving away a free copy of my short story collection, THE GLOAMING: 16 ORGANIC TALES to those who sign up. The collection includes stories published across a wide array of professional science fiction and horror magazines, plus new stories like “Gudmund’s Wolf” and “For You, the River.” If you liked my novels, you’ll really like THE GLOAMING.

My monthly newsletter will also include writing news, movie news related to my novels, personal anecdotes and pictures.

As always, thanks for supporting my creative madness. Without you all, this wouldn’t be possible.

Best,

– Michael

AudioAudits.com has nice things to say about The Invasive audiobook.

I’m happy that The Invasive continues to be enjoyed by readers, and the success of the novel has merited The Invasive: Remnants, which will be published shortly.

You can check out what Audio Audits has to say at this link.

The Invasive is a unique sci-fi, it’s definitely a different twist on the usual alien invasion story. While there is plenty of action and suspense, the parts that I found most interesting were the interactions between Bishop and his feisty wife Angela and the eventual somewhat reluctant bond between the two and Colbrick.
