Very excited about an upcoming signing at a local bookstore (The Book Shelf in Lapeer, Michigan). If you’re anywhere near the area on Saturday, September 6th, between 2 and 4 pm, drop by and chat me up. Buy a paperback of A BEAUTIFUL MADNESS and let me sign some crazy message that will make you blush (or grin, depending on your sense of humor).
Thanks to everybody who has already bought a copy, written a review, and the like. You guys rock!

There is a ton of news to share about it this week.
The latest things are an interview in the International Thriller Writer’s magazine The Big Thrill. Thanks to George Ebey.
I was also interviewed by Michael Parker for Crime Fiction Lover.
And Michael Parker just reviewed ABM for Crime Fiction Lover.
And Frank Errington just reviewed ABM here.
My buddy, fantastic fantasist Mercedes Yardley, just posted my guest post “Why You Should Read Widely,” on her website. Check it, share it, leave a comment, for a chance to win a paperback copy of ABM, and a shot at the grand prize!
And Josef Hernandez at The Minneapolis Books Examiner (who called ABM: “One of the best books of the Year,”) also just did a post about August book releases and said, “If you only have time to read one book in August, make it ABM…” or something like that. You can check it out here.
I self-published my first Supernatural Thriller as Julian Vaughn. It’s called Earthly Things, and I believe those who dig The Lovely Bones, will find it similar yet completely different. You can buy it on Kindle here. I’m working on the paperback but have to get the proof copies in the mail before I finalize and make them for sale. Spread the word, baby.
I feel like I’m forgetting some things, too. Just so much going on right now. Thanks for all your support!
Michael Parker interviewed me for the fantastic Crime Fiction Lover. It was a blast and I was able to share some insider info on my first Crime novel A BEAUTIFUL MADNESS. Plus I talk about some of my heroes, like Tom Piccirilli, John D. MacDonald, Joe Lansdale, James Lee Burke, Dennis Lehane, John Connolly, and Lee Child.
Check out the interview here.
Feel free to leave a comment over there, and share the link.
Quick jacket copy:
Sensitive fourteen-year-old Dexter Bestwick is at the park with his girlfriend Jamie when his father murders him for stealing something from his locked room. Still around after his death to witness the ensuing damages, he aches to protect his first, young love from being a victim. Yet he’s afraid the eternal light will grow brighter and claim him, and that Jamie will soon suffer the same fate…
Earthly Things is a touching and fast-paced supernatural mystery that will appeal to fans of The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold.
I just self-published this title since I have a hard time waiting for a book to sell to a publisher when it could be out there, read, and about to be read. So, here it is. I really dig this story and hope lots of you do too.
You can buy it on Kindle here.
And if you need it in another digital format, you can grab it off Smashwords.
You can also add it on Goodreads, and feel free to leave a review.
Thanks to anybody who checks it out, and to those who spread the word about it. I appreciate all your support!
