If you could not tell by my posts all over social media today I was a little excited. Okay, well a little more than excited. I was pretty fucking pumped and I’ve had a smile on my face for most of the day. It’s been an exciting day!
I know that I don’t have an agent or a six-figure publishing deal, but it’s still really exciting to be in a single bookstore and have my book on the same shelf as Stephen King!
SAME SHELF AS STEPHEN FUCKING KING!
At some point in time, I figured I would have a book out there somewhere. Now that it is in a store… it feels like a dream come true. Eight Modern Horrors is in a bookstore!
Chaucer’s here in Santa Barbara. Maybe I’ll try to get it in a few others. We’ll see how sales here do first.
That brings me to my next bit of news. I Killed Bigfoot vol. 4 is going to be out this Wednesday. That is also very exciting. Even more exciting is my next horror anthology is going to be out on October 3rd!
I have dubbed the latest book, “Horrors of the Soul: Fables of Desolation and Despair.”
This book is going to be a lot darker. A lot darker. Eight Modern Horrors I toned down quite a bit to be of a bit wider appeal. This book I have written from a different state of mind. A lot of this reflects my battle with anxiety and depression. There were literal tears shed writing a lot of these stories.
Don’t worry, these are not all uber depressing stories. I think I did a good job of creating some different atmospheres than I did last time. I’m really hoping these make you second guess people walking near you in a park or looking into the doorway of your bedroom as you drift off to sleep. They even may have you think of the world differently.
There is gong to be a cover reveal later this week. Finalizing those details now.
Thank you all for your continued support. It means the world to me.
