We weren’t sure if this would come together in time, but I’m pleased to report The Halloween Children, which I co-wrote with Norman Prentiss, will be published in trade paperback for the first time ever this October!
Amazon already has their copies, and Cemetery Dance will be shipping this title in time for Halloween.
More news to come! Thank you for your continuing support and enthusiasm!
I’m extremely pleased to report the trade hardcover edition of The Zombie Who Cried Human has been published and is shipping now, and it really turned out beautifully. Glenn Chadbourne’s artwork brought Boy Zombie and his entire town to life… so to speak… and I’m really pleased by how this came together.
WHAT AGE RANGE IS THIS FOR?
I’ve been asked what age range this book is for, which is a great question. My answer is simple: it’s for kids of all ages who are prepared for the style of artwork and the nature of the story. If you’re actually purchasing this for a child, give it a pre-read — like you would for any book you get them — and make sure you think it is appropriate based on their interests. If not, set it aside in your forbidden closet of mystery until they can find it on their own!
Greg Nibler and Sarah X Dylan at Funemployment Radio have produced an incredible audiobook for The Zombie Who Cried Human, and because they’re absolutely awesome to work with, this one audiobook actually contains two different readings of the story!
You can download this audiobook for a crazy low price, so please check it out and let us know what you think!

I’m extremely pleased to report that my first children’s book will be published in 2018! Even better, I got to work with my good friend Glenn Chadbourne on this project and his detailed paintings really made the story come to life… so to speak! I’ll share some of his incredible interior artwork in the months to come, but in the meantime, here are the important details:
About the Book:
Little Boy Zombie lives on a big farm just outside of Romero Town with Mama Zombie, Papa Zombie, and Rex the Zombie Dog.
One day, while Mama Zombie and Papa Zombie are away, Boy Zombie is left in charge of the farm. But when he gets bored, he decides to play a prank on the citizens of ZomBeeTown. He yells toward town, “Humans here, humans here!” And everyone comes shambling to the farm to help.
When they discover they’ve been tricked, Boy Zombie is warned by his elders: “Don’t cry ‘humans’ when there are no humans!”
But will he learn his lesson in time?
The Zombie Who Cried Human is the first book in the “Friendly Little Monsters” series from Brian James Freeman and Glenn Chadbourne, who are blending classic fables with modern storytelling techniques to entertain children and adults of all ages.
I’m very pleased to report that The Halloween Children, the novel I wrote with Norman Prentiss for the acclaimed Earthling Halloween Series a few years back, will be re-released as a trade hardcover by Cemetery Dance Publications later this year, featuring stunning new cover artwork by Vincent Chong.
