September Newsletter!

I’ve just sent out the September issue of my newsletter. It contains a brand-new short story (“Bradley Goes Crunch”) and a deleted chapter that was too ridiculous to include in A Bad Day For Voodoo. 

Check it out HERE.

A Bit More…

Here’s the description of my new novel, Cyclops Road, available next week!

Evan Portin is at a sad, scary place in his life. While taking a long walk to compose himself and figure out where to go from here, he encounters a young woman being mugged in a park.
When he tries to intervene, he discovers that she doesn’t need his help. At all.
Her name is Harriett. She is very, very good at defending herself. Everything she owns is in a large backpack. She’s never seen a cell phone. She’s never been in a car. She’s never really ventured into the outside world.
And she says she’s traveling across the country to slay a Cyclops.
She’s insane, right? Evan is not in the habit of hanging out with delusional women he’s just met. On the other hand, it can’t hurt to offer her a ride out of town. And maybe this crazy journey is exactly what he needs…

Horror News Network Interview

Jay Kay of the Horror Happens radio show, who interviewed me on his show last month, has interviewed me again! This time, instead of an interview for your ears, it’s an interview for your eyes! Like the radio show, we talk almost exclusively about Blister.

Check it out at the Horror News Network.


Safety Harbor Writers Conference

The 2017 Safety Harbor Writers & Poets Conference (March 12 in Clearwater, Florida) is now open for registration! There are workshops galore, including one by me: The Fiendish Craft of Generating Suspense.

“Whether you’re writing a brutal edge-of-your-seat thriller or a charming historical romance, generating suspense is important in all forms of storytelling. Author Jeff Strand (Blister, Pressure, Wolf Hunt) will discuss how to keep your readers flying through the pages, desperate to know what’s going to happen next. He’ll talk about keeping your work unpredictable, playing fair, creating dramatic questions, using ticking clocks, how long to delay gratification, and even comic relief.”

You were looking for something to do on March 12th anyway, so register HERE.
