The Invasive 2: Remnants is out

Hey everyone,

Things are crazy out here in western Montana. Fires are blowing up all over the place. There is good news, however. “The Invasive 2: Remnants” is out! The novel once again takes place in Montana, and features the same cast of characters from the popular “The Invasive”. I had a lot of fun writing the sequel, and I’m glad it’s finally out.

You can grab a copy of the novel here.

Best,

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).

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.
