Latest Newsletter

The latest issue of my newsletter just went out! It contains the goofy little story “Last One In,” a handy guide to which of the five novellas in my collection FIVE NOVELLAS is best for you, and a couple of cool images that you’re probably seen already. Read it online here:


My Next Novel…

Despite the Wolf Hunt 3 (available October 25th) teaser, that’s not my next novel! This is:


Cover by Lynne Hansen Art. Coming soon…


People often ask when novellas like An Apocalypse of Our Own, Stalking You Now, Kutter and others will appear in paperback. I’ve never really wanted to publish them as individual books (they’re kinda thin) but there’s a huge difference between something like Faint of Heart and Facial, and it seemed like a collection of several of my novellas would be a very odd package.

Recently, I said, “Screw it. Let it be an odd package.”

I needed a cover, so I went to my wife and cover artist Lynne Hansen of Lynne Hansen Art. 

ME: Where’s the link to the pre-designed book covers on your site?

LYNNE: I took it down. I don’t sell them anymore. Why?

ME: I’m putting together a collection of five of my novellas.

LYNNE: No, no, no, I’ll do a new cover for that. What’s the collection called?

ME: Five Novellas.

LYNNE: You can’t call it Five Novellas!

ME: [Repeats explanation for the title, which appears in the introduction to the collection, and which is part of the free Kindle sample.]

[Time passes.]

LYNNE: Here you go.


ME: Sweet!

LYNNE [formatting the paperback edition]: Do you want the cover to each novella to appear before it?

ME: No. I never re-published Facial and we don’t have a cover.

LYNNE: You need a cover for Facial.

[Time passes.]

LYNNE: Here you go.


ME: Sweet.

LYNNE: Also I’ve been wanting to redo the cover to Faint of Heart.

ME: The scope of this project seems to be expanding an an alarming rate.

[Time passes.]

LYNNE: Here you go.


ME: Sweet.

So Five Novellas ended with three new covers, not counting the back cover design on the paperback. (TRIVIA: The back cover of Ferocious has the vicious zombie squirrel!)

That’s why Facial is available again (HERE) but you shouldn’t buy it unless Facial is the only one of the five books you’re interested in.

Instead, Stalking You Now, An Apocalypse of Our Own, Faint of Heart, Kutter, and Facial are now available in the ingeniously titled Five Novellas! 125,000 words for $2.99!

Kindle edition available HERE.

Paperback edition available next week.
