Advanced News On My Next Release And How To Get It For FREE

Over the rest of this summer, I'll be putting the finishing touches on a short horror story called Consumption. I'm excited for you all to read this, and I have a feeling it may be pretty divisive so I'm really looking forward to your feedback, both good and bad! It's a far cry from Convergence, both tonally and genre-wise, but still firmly rooted in the speculative-fiction category. Coming in at nearly 12,000 words, this is a dark, adult piece that revolves around six guests who have been invited to a blind twelve-course tasting meal. Of course, they have no idea what they’re in store for, nor do they realize the true nature of that peculiar tasting meat plated before them. Not until it’s far too late, at least. I think it's a pretty fun food-gore monster mash-up, although you might not want to read this one on a full belly...

You can find more about it on this page, and while you're there feel free to sign up for a FREE Advanced eReader Copy of Consumption. I only ask that if you do sign up, please leave an honest review when the story launches in the fall. I'm planning for an October release and hope to send out the ARCs in late September/early October time-frame, at least two weeks prior to the eBook's official release.

Stay tuned for more news soon! I'll be revealing the cover art later this summer, a few looks behind the scenes, and getting the official release date locked down. In the meantime, you can read the official description, check out an excerpt, and, of course, sign up for your free early release edition here!

And, if you want to try out my work for cheap right now, Convergence is still on sale for only 99 cents for a few more days. Time is running out, though, so be sure to get your copy ASAP!
