I’ve been pretty damn busy since returning from Killercon a few weeks ago. Here’s some of the stuff I’ve been up to.
My serialized Civil War era serial killer novel, Sawbones, went on hiatus due to publisher interest. I don’t know how that will pan out yet, but the publisher/editor in question requested I stop posting chapters until a decision has been made. Stay tuned. (Also: cross your fingers.)
A grisly little tale of meth and murder in my home state of Arkansas, “Dog Will Hunt,” was picked up by the very cool Needle: A Magazine of Noir. The story will appear in the Winter 2011 issue, but I strongly recommend you snatch every issue. (No. 4 featured a terrific story from Tom Piccirilli and the following volume features a never-before-published Gil Brewer story!)
My backwoods East Texas creature story “Angel and Grace” was picked up for the forthcoming anthology Mutation Nation, edited by Kelly Dunn and published by Rainstorm Press. The antho is expected to be released in December.
A group of very gracious pre-readers is currently combing over the penultimate edit of my novel Control. Once it’s returned to me and I do my final edit, you can expect the e-book to follow, probably in late November. Control will be available on Kindle and Nook. A brief description appears on the Bibliography page.
That’s not quite everything, but some of my industry shan’t be discussed for a short while yet. Cool shit on the horizon, folks. I think you’ll dig what I’ve got up my sleeve.
