Lots of cool stuff happening behind the scenes that I can’t blab about yet, but I’ll say that the movie rights to not one, not two, but three of my books have been spoken for in the past couple of weeks. This does not mean that large checks have been deposited into my bank account, or that we’re anywhere close to an actual motion picture yet, but three more books have now taken that first step.

The Considering Stories weekly series of in-depth (yet very light on the spoilers) essays on my books continued with Lost Homicidal Maniac (Answers to “Shirley”) the fourth and most recent Andrew Mayhem novel…but not for long! I mean, it’ll always be the fourth, but its status as “most recent” will vanish next month. Expect some Mayhem-related news very soon. Check out the essay HERE.

I finished up a story called “Devil-Powered Death Train of Doom” and sent it off to the editor of the anthology for which it was solicited. I asked him in advance if “extremely silly” was okay, and he said yes, but I dunno, this one might make his head explode. We’ll see if I get a “WTF, Jeff????????” response.

Whoa! I actually got out of the house this weekend! The Plaza Theater in Atlanta has converted its parking lot into a makeshift contact-free drive-in theater, so we went to see Clue. Colonel Mustard and Professor Plum wouldn’t fare well in the MeToo era.

The weekly look at one of my books at Considering Stories continues this week with Casket For Sale (Only Used Once). Check it out HERE.


My story “Green Suits” appears in Issue #7 of Forbidden Futures, which is available online for free! It’s not for the kiddies. Read it HERE and use the password “taboopresent” if prompted.

The audiobook version of Allison is now available, read by Sara Morsey! Get it right HERE!


Y’know, I have an unofficial fan group on Facebook! If you feel that there is a sufficient amount of Jeff Strand in your life right now, you should skip it, but if you want a smidgen more, it’s right HERE.

The official title of the fifth Andrew Mayhem book is now Cemetery Closing (Everything Must Go).

…and Scares That Care joins the list of conventions that have been cancelled. This one was pretty much inevitable (horror conventions taking place before and after it had already gone bye-bye) and again it falls into the category of “very disappointing but the right choice.”

The Odds is now available in paperback! Get it HERE.

And the audiobook of Allison, read by Sara Morsey, is now available! Put those Audible credits to good use! Get it HERE.


And the Considering Stories series continues, this time with a look at the second Andrew Mayhem novel, Single White Psychopath Seeks Same. Check it out HERE.

Work on the fifth Andrew Mayhem novel continues. Oh, man, he’s in some deep doody at the moment…


May 7th

Considering Stories continues their book-a-week look at my work with an essay on Graverobbers Wanted (No Experience Necessary). They’re going to cover the entire series, so if you’re waiting for the upcoming fifth book but don’t want to refresh your memory by re-reading the first four because your time is too valuable, this might be a good way to get back into the world of Andrew Mayhem.

Check it out HERE.

The fifth book is going well (for me, not Andrew). 18% done.


Let Me Eat Cake

Whoa! My wife made me TWO cakes!
