A few updated for you

I’m trying to use the site more and more. It’s been slow going but I’m getting there. I’ve updated the books section and started using the blog again after a little while away. I’ve been pretty busy over the last few months so thought I’d post some updates.

The novella that J.C. Michael and I were working on for over a year is finally out. If you haven’t heard me going on about it in one place or another here’s a look at the cover.

The feedback so far has been great and it’s only been released for two days. I recently appeared in a charity antho as well. Pic below.

You can find links to all of these books in the book section, along with synopsis.

In the next week or so this one will be available.

And last but not least I can finally reveal the cover for an upcoming antho that I don’t have a release date for but do have a story in.

Now, there are probably a load of things I’ve forgot to cover but I will post again soon with any more updates that spring to mind. Happy reading 🙂

You Only Get One Shot

Synopsis:

What would you do if someone demanded you write the best story of your life, to be judged online? That your life depended on it.

Four well-known authors receive an email telling them they are responsible for a suicide. Their antagonist makes it clear she is out for revenge and they have no option but to comply. Their task is to post the best story they can imagine online and await judgement. Filled with guilt, anxiety, and even a few murderous tendencies, each writer weaves their tale and hopes for the best. It’ll be the competition of their lives. Who’s story will win? Will anyone survive?

If you enjoy tense, fast-paced horror, then you will love Kevin J. Kennedy and J.C. Michael’s You Only Get One Shot! Your shot is now. Read You Only Get One Shot today.

Praise for the book:

“Kennedy & Michael’s _You Only Get One Shot_ is quite a clever noir narrative, blending several gritty tales together into one unforgettable “escape by your wits” premise that will keep you turning the pages in terror till the twisty end is brilliantly unveiled. Gleefully disturbing and darkly terrifying to writers like me, this is such a clever and diffuse story, with the same puzzling torment of the SAW movies, but all the grit of a pulp crime novel. If you have this book in your hands or on the screen right now, you better buy it right away, because you only get one shot…”

Michael A. Arnzen, Bram Stoker Award winning author of Play Dead

“You Only Get One Shot gives all new meaning to a publishing deadline! Quite entertaining!”

Weston Kincade, author of the ‘A Life of Death’ series.

General Ramblings and Updates 2

I’ll probably always be saying this but I am not great at keeping up to date with everything. I thought it was time for another update.

I posted the cover to Collected Eater Horror Shorts on Facebook and thought I better have it on here too.

It still has the author names to be added but I wont have the final author list for the next few days. I’ll post it here when I have it.

In other news I should be appearing in a few anthos over the coming months but I don’t have release dates for them. The Antho’s are Splat 3 and Unleashed:Monsters VS Zombies 2. I’ll post dates when I have them.

The novella written by JC Michael and myself should be available within the next month, all going well.

I’ve finished Discoredia by JC and absolutely loved it. Well worth a read if you haven’t already.

Check it out here.

I read Bryan Smith’s Murder Squad after Discoredia, which was also excellent and I’m now reading Header 3 by Edward Lee and Ryan Harding. Really enjoying this one too but I was a little worried with the length. Been waiting a long time on it and it’s shorter than I expected but so far so good. I’ll get some reviews on my Goodreads page, which you can access through the links, once I get time.

That’s about it for now. Be back soon.

Catch ye!
