Also check out the cover Ken Wood revealed for issue #7 here. If you’re not reading this magazine you’re missing out. 

Soon I’ll also have an interview on here with the wonderful Mercedes M. Yardley. She’s my soul sister. I just read one of her unpublished novels and gave her a blurb because she is so incredibly talented it makes me want to cry.

And as soon as writer/publisher K. Allen Wood has some free time I’m going to interview that bugger too. 

Working hard to complete the second Thomas Morgan novel so I can send it to my pre-readers by the end of this month, and had a short story/novelette idea I started writing out of the blue, which is pretty cool since I haven’t written any shorter work in almost a year. It’s called On Cool, Autumn Evenings Like This One. It’s pretty wild, sad, beautiful, all that crap. 

I hope everybody is well!

Shock Totem #6 Giveaway

Very excited that Shock Totem #6 will be out soon and I have just ordered 5 paperback copies to give away to some lucky buggers. 

All you’ll have to do is share this giveaway on FB, or Twitter, Google +, Goodreads, or wherever, and paste the link of where you shared it in the comments section down below.

Easy. I’ll run this Giveaway for two weeks and then pick the five winners.

Very excited about  sharing pages again with one of my heroes (Jack Ketchum). Plus Shock Totem is super fine and I love those guys. The interview I did for this was a blast. You can check out the table of contents here.


Thanks to anybody who spreads the word and enters!

Shock Totem #4 free for Kindle Today

Go get Shock Totem #4 for free on your Kindle today. It’s a great issue. I love those guys.

Thanks to any who spread the word!

In the last year and a couple months I’ve sold five books to Delirium/Darkfuse, and it still blows my mind. Dave Thomas just interviewed me on their website, which was a lot of fun, and I reveal some secrets. Have a gander.

Also neat to see that Goodreads has a feature that lets me list the Division mythos on my author page. It’s going to be pretty amazing to watch that fill up with all 13 books in the next few years.

Glad I stumbled across that. I learn something new every day.

Jonathan Maberry just guest posted on Book Den, too. Check it out!

Darkfuse has the Delirium novella subscription available for Kindle now too.

And my newest novella DOWN HERE IN THE DARK wants to rock your socks off. Go snag it and leave me a review on Amazon or Goodreads. I’m also giving away a few copies but you have to hurry…

My latest novel (the sequel to Nursery Rhymes 4 Dead Children) is going to go all gang busters on you. It’s dark and vivid and wants you to give it a chance.

Stay tuned for an interview with Greg Gifune and a guest post I’ll be doing about the first Red Piccirilli book BEFORE LEONORA WAKES.


Shock Totem #4 free on Kindle for today only!

If you have a Kindle and haven’t read Shock Totem #4 you can get it free today! Has my story Beneath the Weeping Willow in it (which ties into the second Division novel The Dampness of Mourning) too! So doubly neat! Go get some!

My favorite magazine (and super cheap)

Shock Totem has all of their issues available digitally! Great way to sample what they’re all about if you’re a writer, and just a helluva lot of fun if you’re a reader. I suggest starting with #4 because my story is in it so that makes it extra badass. Then go buy the rest of them. You can have all four issues and the holiday special for like $7!

*Check ’em out!*

Enter the Shock Totem 4.5 and Hacked-up Holiday Massacre Giveaway!

I’m giving away Three copies of A HACKED-UP HOLIDAY MASSACRE (which has my story, “We Run Races With Goblin Troopers,” in it alongside a bunch of great writers like Jack Ketchum, Joe Lansdale and Lee Thomas), and Three copies of SHOCK TOTEM 4.5 (which has the Christmas that changed my life alongside more great people’s work).

All you have to do to win one of the six prizes is spread the word and paste the link you shared on Facebook or Twitter or wherever into the comments section here. Within two weeks I’ll use a random generator to pick the six winners!

Thanks and good luck!
