Hey, friends. Hope your April has kicked off well. Mine has, both writing-wise and otherwise, and I’ll be bringing you some updates soon. For now, though, I want to talk about something else. I want to talk about Sundance’s television show HAP AND LEONARD. Full Disclosure: I’ve been a Joe R. Lansdale fan for many […]Read more "Top Six Reasons Why You Should Watch HAP AND LEONARD Tonight"
Howdy. I posted a couple months ago that eight of my novels were about to become unavailable for a while. Though there was a delay in that process, it looks like it’s now happening. The long and short of it is that my first publisher (Samhain Publishing) is closing, which means that the rights to […]Read more "Into the Unknown: The Disappearance of Eight Novels"

I’m getting ready to take my middle child (also a super incredible daughter) to my favorite bookstore, a […]Read more "More Raves for THE NIGHTMARE GIRL and HorrorHound Weekend Approaches"

Sorry about that, but the book I’m currently editing turned out to be a whopper (nearly 160,000 words), and I’ve been working like crazy to downsize it, to shape it, and of course to enhance it. It’s happening, […]Read more "THE NIGHTMARE GIRL: Reviews and Book of the Month!"
Hey, friends. Short and sweet tonight. I have a new novel coming on Tuesday, and it’s getting rave reviews. In fact, despite the fact that it’s not out yet, it was already named the third-best novel of 2014 over at Horror After Dark. The cover: The plot: Playing with fire has never been more dangerous.
