HEART OF GLASS: An Existential Love Story

In 2012 I wrote a noir novel called TO DIE UPON A KISS, which told the story of two serial killers who fall in love. It was published by Snubnose Press in ebook format and had a short but fruitful life, receiving limited but encouraging praise. It was pulled from the virtual shelf sometime, IContinue reading “HEART OF GLASS: An Existential Love Story”

Paper Dolls

Just a quick one today (Hoorah! I hear you scream). Since the release of Labyrinth of the Dolls on Tuesday, a lot of people have been asking about a paperback version.

The Unpredictable Labyrinth

“At its best, life is completely unpredictable.” You know who said that? Christopher Walken. Profound stuff, right? Well, let’s hold off plans just yet for a twenty-foot bronze statue in his name, because he also went on to say “One day you’re saving the rainforest, the next you’re chugging cock.” Hardly Aristotle. Nonetheless, Walken hadContinue reading “The Unpredictable Labyrinth”

The Exorcism of Craig Wallwork

“What an excellent day for an exorcism.” ­­- The Demon from The Exorcist. I’m possessed… Okay, maybe I’m not possessed in the Regan-head-spinning-levitating-off-the-bed-throwing-up-pea-soup type of possession, but there’s something definitely inside me. I haven’t consulted with the clergy yet (a letter has been drafted to the Vatican, but the post office is a good twentyContinue reading “The Exorcism of Craig Wallwork”

Cover Reveal & Interview at Night Worms

I had a great time recently being interviewed by Ben over at Night Worms. It’s probably the most compressive interview I’ve ever done.

The interview was also used to exclusively reveal the new cover forContinue reading “Cover Reveal & Interview at Night Worms”

New Bad People Cover

I’ve jumped off the social media merry-go-round for a while. I was getting way too dizzy.

Adrian Barnes, author of the novel NOD, lost his long battle with cancer in early 2018.

I made contact with Adrian several timesContinue reading “5 Days of Books: Adrian Barnes”
