Time to pop in those earbuds and pump up the volume. About two weeks ago the gracious Tim Niederriter invited me to guest on his podcast and the episode has finally dropped. We tear it up, talking about writing, horror, and the publishing industry. Well, as much as you can expect two authors to tear it up anyway. Tim is both a prolific writer and podcaster, and I really enjoyed my time on his show. As always, I’d love to hear what you think! Continue reading

In The Artists Realm with Sylvia Stein – Discussing The Writing and Editing Process, Writing Advice, and My Books Disease and The End Is All We See
Yesterday I was honored to guest on the podcast In The Artists Realm and my host, Sylvia Stein made it a great experience. Despite a bit of scheduling conflict, fully my fault because I screwed up the time zones, we were able to make it work. It’s always a pleasure to discuss my writing process and books, and in this episode we go deep. Continue reading
Did someone say sale? That’s right, I did! The End Is All We See is now on sale for just $0.99! If you’ve been too broke, too preoccupied, too lazy, too out of the know, or just plain too hesitant to pick up a copy, now is your chance to do it at a steal. From April 27th – April 30th you can grab the eBook for less than a buck, marked down from $2.99. But if you wait too long, you’ll miss out.
It’s always nerve wracking to send a book out for review. As a reviewer myself, I’m keenly aware of the critical eyes that search out flaws in writing like a pig sniffs truffles. This is the way it should be. My writing has already been though the sniff test on my end… but sending it out to be tested by someone another’s truffle sniffer inevitably has me biting my nails.
Have I ever explained, Dear Reader, why I decided to team up with A.J. Brown for our project The End Is All We See / All We See Is The End? It’s not just because he’s a great person. It’s not just because he’s supportive of other writers, and does his best to help others when he can. It’s not even because he and I hold a similar frame of mind when it comes to, I think, most things. Well… it might be a bit of all of these, but the real reason is because he’s a fantastic writer.
It’s like a dream come true. Back in November I threw Disease up on Wattpad. I figured I had nothing to lose, but lots of readers to gain. Back then I never imagined that it would quickly become a featured novel, and that after that I’d be watching it skyrocket in the ranks. Today I’m please to announce, nay, estatic to announce, Disease is now #1 on Wattpad Featured Horror!

Pathfinder Tales: Bloodbound, written by F. Wesley Schneider, is a novel set in the award-winning RPG world of Pathfinder. Before a copy of this book landed in my inbox, I was unfamiliar with Pathfinder. However, in high school I loved Dungeons and Dragons as well as the spin-off novel series Dragonlance. For that reason I have a special place in my heart for this type of writing
I wrote and published this blog post for Dread Central. See the original post here.

Set in present day Vancouver, Nod by Adrian Barnes throws us into an apocalyptic world set upon by a global insomniac event. The story is told through the eyes of an author, Paul, an introverted misanthrope, who is one of a precious few “Sleepers”—those who remain unaffected by the mysterious plague of non-sleep.
