Bound for HorrorHound

In 2 days I'm catching a plane to Cincinnati, Ohio, to attend the HorrorHound Weekend convention. My publisher Samhain Publishing is based there and sponsoring the event. There will be plenty of horror movie actors (including several from The Walking Dead), film screenings, booths selling memorabilia and droves of horror fans. I'm totally psyched to be a guest of the event.

On Thursday I'm going to meet the Samhain team for the first time and get the grand tour of my publisher's office. I'm really thrilled about this. As an author, I mostly connect with the people editing and marketing my books through email. It will be nice to finally meet everyone face to face.

Then Friday, Saturday and Sunday (March 22-24) I'll be at the horror con signing books at the Samhain Horror booth. Alongside me will be fellow horror authors Kristopher Rufty, Jonathan Janz and David Searls. In the evenings we'll share some laughs over dinner and beers and probably catch a couple of the horror movies being screened at the event. It's gonna be a blast.

If you happen to live anywhere near Cincinnati or plan to travel there this coming weekend for the conference, definitely come find us at the Samhain booth. We'll be happy to autograph some books for you.

I'll be sure to take lots of pics and post them when I get back.

Have a great day,

New Short Story Coming in July

Today, it's official. My publisher has agreed to release my short story "The Girl from the Blood Coven" as a FREE ebook in July. I wrote this to be a prelude to my upcoming book THE WITCHING HOUSE, which releases the following month in August. 

Below is a description of the short story:

It’s the year 1972. Sheriff Travis Keagan is enjoying a beer at the local roadhouse, when a blood-soaked girl enters the bar. Terrified and trembling, Abigail Blackwood claims her entire family was massacred at the hippy commune in the woods. When Sheriff Keagan and his deputies investigate the Blevins House, they discover Abigail may not be telling the full story.

Mansucript Delivered

It's a happy day in Dallas. After a long weekend of writing at a cabin in the woods, I completed revisions for my upcoming novella THE WITCHING HOUSE. Today I delivered the polished manuscript to my editor. We will go through a couple of rounds of editing and then the book releases in August.

I also wrote a short story prequel to the book that I will be announcing soon. Right now I'm editing and designing a cover for the short story. Will keep you posted. 

My Latest Interview

Here's an interview I just did for Horror Novel Reviews, talking about my upcoming books THE WITCHING HOUSE and THE DEVIL'S WOODS.
