Big News and a Weekend Giveaway

The month of May has been flat-out crazy. And I mean crazy in a good way. I’ll start off with the great news. I signed a deal with Samhain for the sequel, yes, I said sequel, to Forest of Shadows. The next book is called Sinister Entity and takes several characters from the first book, over a decade later. Who made the cut to book two? You’ll have to wait until April, 2013 to find out. Until then, I can show you the amazing cover that just got into my hot little hands 2 days ago.

This wait is going to kill me!

As you all know, my second book with Samhain, Evil Eternal, was released at the beginning of the month. The promotional wheels have been spinning and I’m gearing up for the big Books Without Borders fair on June 9th. Word is there will be thousands of folks attending. I’m just offering up a few prayers to the sun god to keep it bright and dry.

I saw the first official review for Evil Eternal this week and it was a doozy. It’s from the folks at Ginger Nuts of Horror. Here’s just the beginning:

Some horror books are excellent because they delve into the deepest parts of our psyche, and try and shed light on what makes us us.  Some are excellent because the author has an amazing talent for writing wonderful prose, and some books are just excellent, because they entertain the reader with a blockbusting balls to the walls story.
I’m happy to say that Evil Eternal is one of the most refreshing entries in the balls to the wall type of horror novel that I grew up reading,  in many a long year.”

Click here if you want to read the rest of the review.

I fininshed the first draft of an all new novella that will hopefully be out in the Fall this year. First revision starts right after I post this.

And now on to the fun part. I’m giving away signed prints of the cover for Evil Eternal to anyone who comments on this post. If you were a fan of Forest of Shadows, let me know what you think of the cover for Sinister Entity and take a guess at who the star of the show will be. If you read Evil Eternal, let me know what you think of it. Hell, just come by and say ‘what up’! I’ll start sending out the signed covers this coming week.

    Well, I don’t want a free copy obviously (as I won Forest of Shadows) but so good to hear you’re going to have yet another book out.

    Bravo! That cover definitely has me intrigued. I like how the face seems to transition from a face to a skull before fading into the mist. Also, Evil Eternal is kicking many forms of ass. I’m about 60% done and I hope to finish it this weekend. Great work!
