New Interview on The Gal With The Blue Mask

I have a new interview on The Gal in the Blue Mask. (Thanks, Meghan!) It was fun. Check it out, leave a comment, share the link. Thanks!

You can also pre-order The Lesser People on Amazon (or on Smashwords for other reading devices). It’s coming out in four days! I’m very excited about this novel. I think it’s a damn good book and I learned a lot writing it.

Best wishes to you all!

I hope you’re all well and living life to the fullest!



Paperback release: WHEN WE JOIN JESUS IN HELL

My popular Crime/Horror/Noir novella is out in paperback! I’ve had a lot of fans ask about buying it in that format since its release, so I’m glad the time is finally here. Two of my heroes (Tom Piccirilli and Jack Ketchum) read it and also gave it blurbs, which is pretty awesome. Right now you can buy it here. It will be available in a few other channels in the next week!

 “Hard as nails!” – Jack Ketchum, author of THE WOMAN

“Lee Thompson knows his horror-noir. He fuses both genres together in the turmoil of terror, tragedy, blood, guilt, and lost chances at redemption.”–Tom Piccirilli, author of THE LAST KIND WORDS

Home, he thinks, Where the heart bleeds freely.

A hell of a boxer, he earned the nickname ‘Fist’ back in the day. But during the past eight years, he’s transformed into somebody he no longer knows-a weak, pitiful, and passionless office drone.

Barely hanging onto the last thread of his self-respect, he returns home one night to discover Hell has truly crossed its threshold.

And Hell has lessons to teach him through what fragments remain.

Slivers of dark light.

Knowledge in blood.

Forgiveness, clarity and redemption in commitment.

I just put my book WHEN WE JOIN JESUS IN HELL on Amazon yesterday, and I’m super excited to see it on THREE Amazon Bestseller Lists! (Click on the image below to see the close-up).

Tons of new interviews and reviews this week

My publisher DarkFuse is releasing my first Crime novel A BEAUTIFUL MADNESS this week! You can buy it in Kindle or paperback here!

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!
