My horror-thriller novel The Ascension is now available as an eBook for Kindle and other similar readers. And it's only $4.99! That's dirt cheap! I'm tempted to buy a copy at that price, and I wrote the book! Check out all the groovy details here.
My new edited collection, The Boy Detectives: Essays on the Hardy boys and Others is now available from McFarland Press. You can read all about it or order a copy here. This was a very fun book to work on, and I think the collection holds up really well - the whole thing reads so seamelssly, as if it was all written by one person. Each contributor did a great job. Hope you folks enjoy the book!
Howdy, folks! Just a quick note here: an essay I did is forthcoming in a book by Dark Scribe Press (if you don't know them, they did a great collection called Unspeakable Horrors - check it out here at http://darkscribepress.com/pages.php?page_id=80). The book is called Butcher Knives & Body Counts: Essays on the Formula, Frights, and Fun of the Slasher Film. It includes 70 - count 'em, 70 - essays critiquing and examining the slasher genre (one of my favorites!) My essay is on the 2006 film Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon. Check out the blog for the project on their site at http://www.swingingmachetes.blogspot.com/. And the cover art is very cool, as you can see for yourself.
