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

Novel # 3, Black Friday is out

I’m thrilled to report that my latest novel, Black Friday is in the wild.

Log line:

A kleptomaniac, an unemployed IT guy, a shopaholic, and a meth dealer are trapped inside a Chicago supermall on Black Friday by alien forces.

Sometimes a good sale just isn’t worth it.

Think The Mist meets the Breakfast Club, combined with my style of “trapped” situations. You can check out the Ebook and paperback at this link.
