Just received the galley for my heartbreaking novella WHEN WE JOIN JESUS IN HELL. It’s definitely a huge nod to my hero, Tom Piccirilli, and it’s got a bunch of stuff from real life in it that chokes me up. Super proud of this story and can’t wait until everybody can read it!
Received the galley for my Frank Gunn novella DOWN HERE IN THE DARK. Will give her a read in the next week and keep an eye out for any errors. It’s always exciting when it comes to this part because once I turn a manuscript in I don’t look at the story again until this stage. So, it’s somewhat foreign and fresh and very exhilarating. I’m super proud of this book and the novel (THE DAMPNESS OF MOURNING) it co-exists with. Can’t wait to hear what everybody thinks when they come out!
Also have a new and weird story up on Literary Mayhem called THE WEIGHT OF ALL THESE YEARS. It’s trippy, but it’s in Hell, so there you go. Let me know what you think.
And my Halloween review for The Crow’s Caw will be live soon. I read Norman Partridge’s great tale DARK HARVEST. Terrific book.
Still tinkering with the novella WHEN WE JOIN JESUS IN HELL. It has a ton of truth in it. It’s vivid. It’s brutal. It’s tender. It’s a nightmare. Figure I’ll send it to my readers in the next week or so and have it to my publisher by mid-November.
Reading The Thief of Always by Clive Barker right now, and Harlan Ellison’s Deathbird. Fun! Hope everyone is well! Sip some magic. Show some kindness. Live like everything you adore could be stripped away at sunrise.
