People have been asking me what’s next? Several projects, actually. Beginning with my debut short story collection, Dark Black. All credit must go to the nearly impenetrable grind-core splendor of U.K.’s Mutation for the inspiration behind this title. When I first heard it, I absolutely loved it.
I flew to New York with my stellar wife two weeks ago and we had an amazing Manhattan evening with my agents, Judith Ehrlich and Sophia Seidner. This collection is Ray Bradbury’s The October Country fused with a fair share of punk rock and pop-culture. This is my voice and my ethos. I’m thrilled with this book. We hope to start shopping this collection to publishers later this fall. As of now, the book has 20 stories in it, including a few you may be familiar with like “The Girl in the Funeral Parlor,” “Conjuring Danny Squires,” “Live Forever!” and several others that have been published in lit journals and anthologies. But there are many new stories that I am so excited to share with you all. This book is gothic pop cultural horror. That’s the best way I can sum it up.
