A thank you to my readers... and the scariest thing I've ever written.

As a thank you to all my readers, for the next 5 days, I'm offering my debut novella, Samson and Denial, for FREE on Kindle

(There's also a sneak peek of my novel The Compound in this edition). 

Writers write — plain and simple. There's no choice in the matter... it's simply who we are. But amazing readers like you make the difference in so many more ways than you'll ever know. So thank you... from the bottom of my cold, black heart. Hope you enjoy meeting Samson Gallows.


I've written scenes of ghostly children haunting with pure vengeance in their hearts. I've written about zombies tearing people limb from limb. Russian gangsters feeling the evil wrath of long dead kings.

But nothing I've ever written is as scary and thrilling as becoming a new father.

My latest book is called Bob's Book of Baby Madness and it's the real life guy's guide to becoming a new father.

Learn about the the fatal things to NEVER say to a pregnant mother.

Read about Lactatious, god of large breasts. Hormonal changes and why you may or may not need a barrel of holy water.

Why it's suddenly your job to take over the kitty litter - for the mother of your child and the baby itself.

Crucial things you'll need to buy (that you probably never knew existed). 

Learn the difference between a father and a dad... and why, with the Mt. Everest pile of diapers, the long nights of broken sleep and everything in between, why all of it is so very worth it.

Irreverent and humorous but full of useful information, if you know a father to be, go tell them check out the Kindle edition of Bob's Book of Baby Madness here. It's the Real Life Guy's Guide for Expectant Fathers.

Dark Bits of Lamplight and Other Updates

Have had a lot going on lately with the writing front and wanted to update everyone.

My short story "Maggie Blue" was published in a new (only up to issue 3) but very cool zine called Splatterpunk.

The zine itself has such a great old school feel to it but has some quality content and makes me long for the days of other zines just like it. I think they'll be around for quite some time if they keep doing what they're doing now.


Speaking of magazines that will be around for a while, Lamplight is another magazine, run by Jacob Haddon of Apokrupha and he is doing it the way it should be done. 

The first year of Lamplight has been collected into a 450 page volume. It has a years worth of fiction, interviews and articles by... well... damn near everyone you can think of, including my short story "Early Harvest" and an interview.


Also from Apokrupha is a great collection and new release, Dark Bits. It has 52+1 horror flash fiction pieces... and this thing is loaded with fiction from damn near everyone. I have a short story "In Country" in the collection and Dark Bits is available on ebook, paperback and a beautiful hard cover version.


Available on Amazon, my debut novella, Samson and Denial is finally re-released on paperback and still available on ebook. I've been considering doing Samson and Denial as an audiobook release if there's enough interest as well.

The Compound has been re-released on paperback and available on ebook. Thanks to all of you who have purchased a copy. It's greatly appreciated and I hope you enjoy the read.

I've also released several rare short stories on ebook.

Bloodlegum and Lolliknives appeared in a special Christmas chapbook called New Dawn, given away by Brian Keene to his fans. Now, for the first time, it's released in ebook format on Amazon.

Georgie appeared in the special Halloween issue of Shroud magazine. Available now in ebook for the first time at Amazon.

Free Ride Angie was originally released as a promotional chapbook and, except for the few copies on my own shelf, the original copies are sold out. She's one of my favorite characters and had a guest appearance in Samson and Denial. You can pick up the ebook of Free Ride Angie on Amazon


So there you have it! Hope you're all doing well, and as always, thank you so much for reading the tales I write. Working on some fun new things I hope you'll enjoy.
