Savage Prey Published!

My novel Savage Prey, one of my monster books, has been published by Severed Press. I love writing these, and this one in particular was a wonderful adventure. Link here (and the paperback is listed at $10.99, so this might be a good time to buy if you like creature features!).

First Story of 2024

We live in the future… my first publication of 2024 isn’t a print story or book. It isn’t even an ebook or online publication. It’s a podcast of my story “Boiler Room Beasties” which is about uplifted cats on a starship mission gone wrong. It was published by Tall Tale TV, and I’ve included the YouTube link here.

What I Never Told Them – Prize Winner

Here’s some good news with an even better story behind it. My tale “What I Never Told Them” placed third in the Chilling Pen Contest that ended in October (You can read the story for free here).

Now the story behind it: I was on a panel at EasterCon in April when I happened to mention that I’d written a story about sentient seaweed. It was a throwaway comment intended to show everyone how nutty the ideas that occur to writers can be.

To my surprise, everyone seemed fascinated by the idea (if you are, too, the antho that contains the story can be read here), and several people asked me to send them the story.

And I wondered why… and kept wondering until I got it out of my system by writing a story about the whole thing.

Of course, being me, the story took an unfortunate twist for the characters.

Anyway, if you do read it, let me know what you think!

Bastion Published!!

Here’s something cool I hadn’t managed to talk about because of so much travel: my novel Bastion has been published!

This is one I’m particularly proud of. Both the adventure and the characters resonate with me more than many others I’ve written, and it’s one of those cases where I wish everyone would read it, just to meet these people and find out what happens to them!

Fat Man Published Today!

Fat Man has been released (on Amazon for now, more platforms to come!). I’m particularly proud of this one, because it looks at a bunch of stuff that is coming down the pipeline, and how it could affect our world for good and bad… without necessarily going off into speculative fantasyland or fear-mongering. It was a tough balance to maintain, and now readers get to judge whether I pulled it off.

And here’s that glorious cover:
