Get your make-believe wallets out, because my debut crime fiction novel, A Reason to Live, is FREE through Monday, August 6th on Amazon!
The sale is partially because of ARTL’s departure from the KDP Select program, but also because the sequel, Blueblood, should be hitting the streets in 2-3 weeks. There wouldn’t be a better time to grab a copy of the first book for that beach vacation, morning commute, or evening arm-chair routine with a glass of wine by your side.
I’m excited to announce I’ve just wrapped up a sinister novella project that’s been tickling my brain for years. Inspired by Stephen Dobyns’s masterful Church of Dead Girls, I take a frightening peek–not at the unknown–but the very well known.
Do you have neighbors? Did you ever wonder what goes on behind their doors? Then this should be your next read…
No one likes Jack. His wife is gone and his neighbors avoid him. He’s a recluse and a creep and that’s just the way he wants it.
But when ten-year old Emma goes missing in the nearby woods, the eyes of his neighbors turn on him in fear and accusation, escalating as the days pass. The answers they–and the reader–get, however, are the last that anyone would suspect…
Finding Emma is a disturbing novella of literary horror totalling 17,500 words or about 70 paperback pages.
As many of you know, in an attempt to promote some of my shorter fantasy titles, I recently (June 22-26) held a six-day sale of three of my short stories: Sword of Kings, Assassin, and Seven Into the Bleak. I thought I’d give an analysis of what I was aiming for, what I achieved, and some of the lessons learned.
