My first book series was named after the Dylan Thomas poem Do Not Go Gentle Into The Good Night. I quote the poem in the book, and it’s read by one of the characters. It’s a fantastic piece, and one I’m happy to be associated with, even if third-hand. Now, I’ve discovered a reading one of […]

Yes, true believers, I’m working right now (well, not right now, but this weekend) on Beginning, the third and final volume in my zombie series The Dying of the Light. And for those of you who just want the facts, ma’am, here they are: So far in the last 24 hours, I’ve written 10,029 words, and completed through Chapter […]

It’s always been my intention to release The Walker Chronicles in a both a digital and print collection. I’ve always envisioned them as the ‘deleted scenes’ from the books — stories that are worthwhile and interesting, but didn’t really fit in the main books. Either they slowed the pacing down, or felt like they were shoehorned […]

In August of 1981, the United States Navy sent two aircraft carriers, the USS Forrestal and USS Nimitz, to run exercises off the coast of Libya. Commander John Barker, pilot of an American jet, was shot down over the Gulf of Sidra.

Rescued by a fishing trawler and given refuge in a small fishing village, Barker’s nightmare was just beginning… for death lingers long in the desert, and now it was coming for them all.

It’s official: I’ve now sold over 1,000 copies of my second book, The Dying of the Light: Interval! Though it’s lagging somewhat behind the first book and it’s 5,000+ sales, this milestone is nothing to sneeze at! In celebration of this milestone, my publishing company is giving away ebook copies of BOTH books in the series […]

No, you’re not seeing things. The bar on the left really did change from “Outline Chapters” to “Words” – and the prologue has been written. Because you’ve all waited so patiently for, what, nine months now (good thing I’m not George R. R. Martin!) I thought I’d post it here. Beware, there are spoilers here, […]

I’ll be honest: I’m a huge fan of Pixar movies. All of them. Seriously. I think the guys over there have some of the most intriguing ideas, some of the best artists working today, and some amazing writers. Now I know why. I highly recommend that any aspiring authors who read this blog ask themselves these […]

For readers of my The Dying of the Light series, you’ll know that there’s a lot of story to tell in this world. Nearly endless amounts of story, in fact. I created The Walker Chronicles to tell some of the stories that got skipped over in the books; they’re the ‘deleted scenes,’ if you will. So far, there […]

I may have neglected to mention this for the last 10 days, but my second book, The Dying of the Light: Interval, was selected as a Top 5 Finalist in the 2013 Best Indie Books of the Year Awards over at The Kindle Book Review. This is a pretty big deal, since the Suspense/Horror category isn’t exactly […]
