New Manuscript

Hello friends,

My new manuscript has been completed and I am very happy with the end result. It has been edited, and my good friend Jasin has used his exceptional graphics arts skills to produce a book cover that far exceeded my expectations. My talented sister Lisa also made a great interior illustration. I’m pleased to say that I have worked again with the same artists that helped bring my previous book The Macabre Box to life. The new book is another collection of eleven short stories in the horror/suspense genre. Currently, I am sending submissions to publishers.  More news to come !

Horror Festivals and Radio Interview

Hello Friends,

I have some interesting developments I would like to share with you regarding the promotion and selling of The Macabre Box.

A few weeks ago, I attended the Paranormal Festival in Columbus Ind. It was a fun an interesting experience, where I got to speak up close and personal with those involved in “Ghost Hunting” and see what kind of equipment and procedures are used when attempting to contact those forces of nature considered to be supernatural. I sold quite a few copies of my book that day, which proved to me that horror festivals are a great way to generate a buzz about my work. It was an intense day of meeting and greeting, and I was able to make many new friends and contacts. At one point a woman came to my booth and asked me if I was interested in doing a radio interview about my book. I was instantly drawn in and replied “Yes, of course.” This is scheduled for April 5th. Log onto asprn.com for details. I also found out about the Horror Hound Weekend in Indianapolis March 27th-29th. It is probably the biggest horror related event in Ind. each year, and there will be at least a few thousand people in attendance. In addition to screening new independent horror films, there will be some celebrities from the horror film genre to sign autographs and talk to fans. I’ve been registered as one of the vendors, so come see me if you’d like to get a signed copy of my book! I’m more than willing to chat with anyone who is interested in a little conversation. Here is the info:

That’s about all the news… Oh yes, I was invited to attend the next paranormal investigation with N.I.G.H.T. (Nocturnal Investigative Ghost Hunting Team.) We’ll see what happens! More news to come-

Sleepy Hollow

Hey friends,

I am delighted to tell you all that The Macabre Box is now on the book shelves at Sleepy Hollow in Indianapolis. This is truly a historic day for me. I went in with five copies of my book and a poster my talented friend Jasin Thomason designed for me. I was a little nervous to say the least. This was a first for me and I had no idea what the process was supposed to be or how to sell myself. I met a woman named Joanna who is part owner with her husband. She was very nice and cordial and made me feel instantly comfortable. I explained I was a self-published author and was interested in selling my book at her store. She seemed impressed with my work and told me she was more than happy to help me out.
We agreed to a consignment deal. She did not buy any outright, but accepted three copies and said she would also hang my poster on the wall. When the book sells, then I will get my profit, which she will only charge a small percentage of. I can bring her more and keep replenishing as needed. It is selling for $14.00, which is about $6.00 cheaper than ordering it online since there are no shipping costs. Well now, I suggest you go get your copy if you’re in the area! Here is the info:
