New trade paperback of LOST AND LONELY shipping soon!

I’m pleased to report there is a new revised and expanded trade paperback edition of Lost and Lonely, featuring amazing Vincent Chong cover artwork, which will ship next month to Patreon supporters on level Six and above!

Orders can now be placed through Cemetery Dance Publications, and books ordered there will be signed for a limited time only.

Orders via Amazon won’t be signed, but on the other hand they can get a copy of the book into your hands this week, so that’s pretty tempting, eh?

As you might recall, this new edition of Lost and Lonely follows the revised and expanded editions of Dreamlike States, Weak and Wounded, and More Than Midnight, completing the publication process for these new trade paperbacks.

Here are all four trade paperbacks, so you can see what the complete set looks like:

First Photos of PATREON STORIES: VOLUME ONE Lettered Edition!

Shipping early next month to qualifying Patreon supporters is the hand-bound Patreon Stories: Volume One Lettered Edition, and I’m really pleased with how it turned out! These are hand-bound in real leather and my binder used imported hand-marbled endpapers, etc, to take them to the next level. Here are some photos I took real quick yesterday:

Newly Revised & Expanded Trade Paperback Edition of MORE THAN MIDNIGHT!

I’m very pleased to report the newly revised and expanded trade paperback edition of my collection MORE THAN MIDNIGHT is being announced today and will ship later this month. This new edition features creepy cover artwork by the awesome Vincent Chong, stories that weren’t in the original hardcover, and story notes as well — plus anyone who orders in the next week or so from Cemetery Dance Publications can get their copy signed for free!

Just a reminder: my Patreon supporters at Levels Six and Above as of the end of the day TODAY will automatically receive a signed copy of the book with their Patreon membership, so they don’t need to place an order.

Thank you again for all of your support!

A Few Photos of My “An Unusual Proposition For a Mountain Man” Chapbook

I’m still working hard on improving my “product” photography skills, which have always been lacking, and here are a few shots of the new chapbook I published for my supporters over on Patreon. Not bad, but there are some things I want to try differently for the next one!

Update on “An Unusual Proposition For a Mountain Man” Chapbook

Good news about the “An Unusual Proposition For a Mountain Man” chapbook I’m publishing next month for my supporters over on Patreon:

I’ve sent the final files to the printer, so I should have the actual chapbooks in about two weeks!

Because there were a few extra blank pages at the end, I included an “alternate ending” for the story. It’s a small change that is also kind of a big change in terms of how you might interpret the preceding events.

My first readers were torn over the possible endings, so I thought it would be fun to include both of them for your perusal. Future printings of the story will only have one ending, although I cannot say for sure yet which one since I have no clue which one I like better.

More news soon… Thank you again for all of your support!


New Chapbook: “An Unusual Proposition For a Mountain Man”

“An Unusual Proposition For a Mountain Man” is the second chapbook I’m printing exclusively for my Patreon supporters, and Glenn Chadbourne contributed five interior pieces of artwork to make the chapbook extra special. This reward will ship to all supporters who are on Level Two or above as of January 31, 2019, so now is the perfect time to sign-up if you’re interested in what I’m doing over on Patreon!

About the Chapbook:
When he heard the polite knock on the cabin’s wooden door, Buddy “Bud” Williams was certain another pretty face had arrived to represent the developer who wanted his land to build a neighborhood of godawful McMansions.

Bud was right on one of those counts, but very very wrong about the other. The person at his door came with a life-changing offer, but the life that would be changed the most was not Bud’s… it was his son’s life, probably the only person Bud actually cared about.

What will Bud do when it’s time to make the most important decision of his life, and what will the true consequences of that decision be?A


First Photos of PATREON STORIES: VOLUME ONE

Shipping later this month to qualifying supporters on Patreon will be an exclusive short story collection, Patreon Stories: Volume One, and here are my first photos of the signed trade paperback edition! I’ll post photos of the signed Limited Edition hardcover as soon as I have those, too.
