I’m posting my dark YA fantasy Madrigal: Book 1 of the Bel Cantos at Wattpad, free, for your reading pleasure. It was influenced by Stephen King’s Dark Tower series, along with Michael Swanwick’s Iron Dragon’s Daughter. If you enjoyed either of those, you’re sure to find something to like in Madrigal.
Within the next two weeks, I will be releasing my next Double Shot book: Dasvidaniya: A Double Shot of Crime #1. I will be assisted by IndieKite, an independent author service company. Full disclosure, I am a co-founder at IndieKite, and we are using our services to design, release, and market this book in an effort to show the value that IndieKite providers to emerging writers (like myself).
Dasvidaniya will feature two never-before-seen short stories: Carley Strezlec and the Candy Man, a take of a boy and his first heist, and Dasvidaniya, featuring Russian mafia kingpin Viktor “the Butcher” Labko, one of my favorite recurring characters. It’s going to be a lot of fun.
My short story, CREEKMORE, is included in the Winter 2014-2015 edition of NEEDLE: A MAGAZINE OF NOIR.
UNHOLY PLACES: A Double Shot of Horror #2 is available now at Amazon.
