Stay Home Book Sale

 

Started because of the COVID-19 pandemic cancelling conventions and appearances, I began offering signed copies mailed direct to you through this Stay Home Book Sale!

Available stock is shown below, and because I have limited supplies, this will be on a first-come first-serve basis. (USA orders, unless you’re a glutton for punishment and want to pay more for shipping than for the books) If you’re looking for something specific and don’t see it, just ask.

» Update: quantities are dangerously low (less than 10 across the board, several less than 5), so don’t hesitate. I will not be restocking for this or conventions on many of these titles once these are gone.

Please use the form below to choose the items you want and get in the queue. I will respond within 24 hours (check your junk folder! I’ve had many orders hang in limbo this way) with a PayPal total (for books* and shipping — and any changes or updates to inventory as it may affect your request). Note: I am willing to ship to anywhere, if you are willing to deal with the extra shipping costs for non-domestic addresses. (And yes, I will ship as “gifts” to recipients of your choosing) *book price is listed after title in (xx)

Combos and discounts: The two novella series are listed as both individual and then a discounted set. Shallow Graves includes 5 novellas which are available separately through me (at the bottom). If you are a collector or otherwise interested, the full set of 5 in paperback is available through me only for a reduced price of $20.


 

 

 

Payment: I will send you a total and paypal instructions. If I do not hear from you or receive payment within 72 hours, the books will go back into inventory and you may lose them due to numbers in stock.

 

 

 

 

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!!

 

 

Corona Con


“Life is What Happens To You While You’re Busy Making Other Plans…”

Coronavirus, or rather COVID-19, has disrupted life as well know it. Social distancing is keeping people from their jobs, their families, and well, their plans. Among those plans being changed and/or cancelled are a number of conventions, which is what sparked this idea…

You see, Scares That Care does a convention in August in Williamsburg, VA every year, and this year they were expanding with a spring convention in Wisconsin. Covid had other plans. And as soon as Wisconsin was cancelled (for the safety of everyone), those of us who were planning on attending thought maybe we could do something for the overall morale of con-goers and guests alike. Initially I thought it would be a short, cute, live Q&A… it’s turned into something else entirely.

Horror authors, reviewers, and even Joe Ripple himself from Scares that Care were on deck Saturday, April 18th for a LIVE streaming day full of readings, panels, giveaways, and more!

It was a smashing hit! Here’s what “Something Ghoulish” had to say about it.

The event was recorded and posted to youtube

Guests included: Jonathan Janz, Mary SanGiovanni, Robert Ford, Tim Meyer, Matt Hayward, Wes Southard, Somer Canon, Wile E. Young, Stephen Kozeniewski, Aaron Dries, Bracken MacLeod, Brian Keene …with moderators: Sadie Hartman (MotherHorror of Nightworms), Bob Pastorella (This is Horror), Steve Pattee (Horror DNA), and Shane Keene (Ink Heist)

The schedule was planned as follows. Please note these were just guidelines, an order to the chaos. The actual times on the video are posted on the youtube page.

9:45 am — Kick Off: Joe Ripple of Scares That Care
10:00 am — Reading: Bob Ford
10:30 am — Panel: “Finding New Readers” Stephen Kozeniewski, Mary SanGiovanni, Aaron Dries, Wile E. Young, moderator: Steve Pattee (of Horror DNA)
11:30 am — Reading: Brian Keene
12:00 pm — Panel: “Collaborations” Bob Ford, Matt Hayward, Somer Canon, Wes Southard, moderator: Sadie Hartman (MotherHorror of Nightworms) 1:00 pm — Reading: Aaron Dries
 1:30 pm — Panel: “Characters likable vs. compelling” Bracken MacLeod, Kelli Owen, Tim Meyer, moderator: Bob Pastorella (of This is Horror)
 2:30 pm — Reading: Jonathan Janz
 3:00 pm — Reading: Stephen Kozeniewski
 3:30 pm — Panel: “Versatility and cross-genre” Brian Keene, Jonathan Janz, TBA, moderator: Shane Keene (of Ink Heist)
 4:00 pm — Reading: Bracken MacLeod

There is a finite amount of time and far too many people to include, so yes, it’s very very likely there will be a second one later this summer if cons continued to get cancelled…

Stay home, stay safe, and to quote George Romero, “Stay Scared!”
