I went over to Fictionwise today (an ebook dealer) to see if The Sorrows had been rated yet by any readers. I clicked on the “Horror” section of the site and happened to glance at their bestseller list. Here’s what I saw…
|Best Sellers in Horror|
So…yeah. That’s pretty good news, right?
Meli and the gang over at Dreadful Tales just listed their most anticipated reads of 2012, and my follow-up novel House of Skin got chosen alongside the works of such genre stalwarts as Jeff Strand and John Everson. Do I even need to tell you how honored I am? Or how badly concussed I am from falling off my chair?
This honor was based on their reaction to my debut novel The Sorrows, and though I won’t give away what the article says (scroll down for the bit about House of Skin), the reviewer did say, “…it really blew me away.” And no, smart alecks, the first part of that quote wasn’t “This book sucked so bad…”
Speaking of The Sorrows…
Awesome writer and wonderful guy Hunter Shea (he of the tight-and-visceral thriller Forest of Shadows) has just posted an interview with me on his blog. In the interview you can hear about The Sorrows, what other genres I’d like to explore as an author, how I’m like the Beatles, how I’m like but unlike Tim Tebow, my brand-new almost-edited novel, and the weirdest thing I’ve ever written. Thankfully, Hunter decided to not publish those early photos I had taken with Angelina Jolie, and for that I’m thankful. We all make mistakes when we’re young, and really, the pictures were her idea to begin with. And don’t even get me started on the way that llama hyperextended my knee!
Oh. Right. The interview.
