Black Bubbles, The Director’s Cut

BLACK BUBBLES is back!

Due to the distraction of COVID-19, I neglected to get a blog post up about this on time. Never fear… the bubbles are here!

Fresh from Poltergeist Press, this collection has been lightly refreshed, given a new look and feel, and eagerly invites you to come play among my nightmares.

A decades-old crime shocks a family as evidence points to one of their own… An ancient evil hitchhikes its way to freedom… A child has an unusual fascination with decay… A woman excuses premeditation… Death takes a holiday… Science and good intentions make horrific bedfellows… A man hides from nightmares that invade his waking world…

Available on Amazon in hardcover, paperback and ebook… or—because *surprise!* this pandemic finds me with copies but no convention to bring them to—if you’re interested in signed copies, direct from me, use the form over on this page. And thank you!!

 

 

Midnight in the Graveyard

An anthology for the season! From Silver Shamrock Publishing comes MIDNIGHT IN THE GRAVEYARD

Midnight. Some call it the witching hour. Others call it the devil’s hour. Here in the graveyard, midnight is a very special time. It is a time when ghostly spirits are at their strongest, when the veil between our world and theirs is at its thinnest.

Legend has it, that while most of the world is asleep, the lack of prayers allow the spirits to communicate under the cover of darkness, among the headstones, their whispers rustling in the leaves of the old oak trees. But if you’re here in the graveyard, you can tell yourself it’s just the wind, that the moonlight is playing tricks on your eyes, that it’s only the swirling mist you see. But when you hear the graveyard gate clang shut, the dead have something to say. Here are their stories…

Includes stories by (me and) Robert McCammon, Tom Monteleone, Elizabeth Massie, Kealan Patrick Burke, John Everson, Chad Lutzke, Catherine Cavendish, Ronald Kelly, William Meikle, Jason Parent, Brian Moreland, Kenneth W.

25 Favorite Books Under 200 Pages

…and Not One Page More.

I was delighted to be included in this favorites list for WAITING OUT WINTER.

This novella was rich with well-developed characters. Instead of following this pandemic tragedy on a large scale, the author zeroes in on a family and the day to day struggles they face. It’s an emotional rollercoaster as the reader engages in the family’s victories and losses. My favorite aspect of this book was how realistic it was. It infiltrated my real life fears-especially when there was a huge, slow fly trapped in the car with me while I was driving. I rolled all the windows down and I was relieved when it finally found its way out!
