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 🙂
I have a story called the Games in this one that was a lot of fun to write. It has a little nod to Richard Laymon in it since he is the main reason I got into reading. Some other fantastic authors in this one as well.

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.
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.
First post on the new blog but I thought I would carry most of this over from the last one as some of you may have missed it
I was recently a guest on the Panic Room radio show, chatting with James Longmore and Xtina Marie. Author Mike Duke was on before me then I come on around the 50 minute mark. As always people talk to the Scottish about the weather but it gets fun after that. 😉
On the reading front it’s been a pretty good year so far. I started off with Punch from J.R. Park. I had never read the author but I had fancied the book for a while. I’m a big fan of boardwalk/seaside tales and this was a great one to start the year with. If you haven’t read it yet take a look. I left a review on Goodreads.
I read Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis next which absolutely blew me away. I find Anne Rice to be hit and miss but this book was a tremendous entry to the series. If you haven’t read the Vampire Chronicles I doubt that it’s for you though.
Mark Mathews On The Lips of Children was next. Another good read but I didn’t enjoy it as much as my first two reads of the year. Again you can find out my reasons why on Goodreads.
I’ve just finished Heart Shaved Box by Jeff O’Brien. Absolutely loved it. I do enjoy a Bizarro tale but normally stick to Carlton Mellick. For funny books I go to Jeff Strand and for crazy I generally go to Edward Lee. This short story reminded me of all three authors. It was a great tribute to the 80s and just plain mental. Will be reading more by Jeff.
I’m currently reading Discoredia by J.C. Michael and the Language of Dying by Sarah Pinborough. Both are excellent so far.
I think I finished last year on only 48 books read, way less than ever before and I want to fix that. This year I plan to both read and write more. With that being said I suppose an update is appropriate on what I am working on. I currently have a novella subbed to a publisher with J.C. Michael called ‘You Only Get One Shot’. We are waiting to hear back on whether they like it or not at this stage. I’m working on s novelette with author Weston Kincade which we plan to sub to the Chiral Mad 4 anthology and I’m working on my next solo novella which has a working title of ‘The Prison’. I may be putting another anthology together in the next few months but it’s very early stages on that so far.
I think that is all for now. I’ve watched a few horrors recently but nothing was outstanding. As Above, So Below was okay, nothing special, The Girl With All the Gifts was pretty enjoyable but most others seem to have disliked it by the sounds of things on Facebook and The Green Room was pretty good. I’m not sure I would label the Green Room as horror but it’s on Netflix as a horror and others seem to be saying it’s a slasher flick. Either way I quite enjoyed it.
