Jack 4.2 Excerpt

I’m still in first draft mode, but it’s going awesome and I wanted to share a bit of it. We’re in 1944, roughly five years after Jack 4.1. and three years before Bette 4.0 “What do you want, Caroline?” Jack asked, still attempting to watch the movie. He’d seen it half a dozen times already, and knew every…


Victoria 2.2 exceprt

Vickie opened her mouth to let out the scream that had coiled up inside her, but nothing came. Her jaw only hung as she stared at those off-color eyes, and something else entered into her awareness. A smell wafted under her nose, breaking through the stink of the city and the horror of what lay…


Victoria 2.2

About 5k words into the new story. Turns out my computer crash/writing loss actually worked out pretty good, because I’m liking this different direction I’m taking the story far better. I’ve also mostly decided on how far into the Victorian cockney street slang I’m willing to go. Basically I’m keeping it almost entirely to dialog,…


Victoria 2.2 coming soon!

The day Vickie first met Salome, she was running down the street and her skin was melting. She had no idea what was happening or why blisters were swelling and bursting in wet splats all over her body. The horror and pain of the experience sent her careening through the crowded sidewalk, screaming and clutching…

Two new books

Well, sort of. Almost. Danny 3.2 is finished and almost ready to be uploaded. I’ve also decided to release Charlie 1.1, which was one of the first things I wrote in the Bloodletting series. For various reasons, I withheld it until now. It’s currently processing on Kobo for free, and Amazon for .99 cents (until…


Caroline and Charlie: Death Games excerpt

“Okay. Who first?” Charlie asked, placing the pistol back on the table. Caroline smiled at her and leaned forward. She moved the pot and slid the gun to the center of the table and spun it. They watched as it went round three times and settled. “I guess that’s you,” Caroline said. Charlie bit her…


First page of the new story I’m starting

It’s a bit different, but I think it’s going to be a fun one. I’m not including it as an official volume in the Bloodletting series, but something of a side-story. It’s called Caroline and Charlie: Death Games. Keep in mind that I just wrote this like, ten minutes ago. I just got excited about…


Book 4.0–Bette is now available!

Get it here on Amazon! The nights were a blur of bars and little parties in smoke filled hotel rooms. People came and went in her field of vision. Some hostile, most friendly enough or disinterested. At one point she woke up on a couch in one of the bungalows behind the Chateau Marmont, an…


Charlie 1.3 is up

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00F7H33LO  BLURB! In Book 1.3 Charlie, a 16 year old girl pushed to her breaking point is saved by Caroline, the ethereal and strange woman she thinks of as her guardian angel. Charlie soon discovers there’s a much darker side to Caroline when she presents her with the gift of immortality, but at what cost?…


Charlie 1.3 coming Sept 15th!

Cutting through the dark Utah desert in the soft white and red glow of the Cadillac’s dash was like gliding through a fantasy world. She grew up in the desert and generally saw it as a vast, empty place full of dust and rocks and gnarled, unhappy plants and dirty animals scuttling across and under…


Coming Soon: Jack

Here’s what I’m writing tonight. Well, rereading and picking up where I left off a few years ago. Here’s an excerpt: He felt like he was upside down, but he couldn’t be sure. Something woke him up. A noise, far away in the dark. There was the nauseating feeling of being rolled back and forth….
