Great review for THE COYOTE

Courtesy of Robert Morrish at Twilight Ridge. For those who don’t know, Robert gave me my first shot at the pages of Cemetery Dance years ago. His opinion has always meant a lot to me, despite the fact that he hasn’t thoroughly enjoyed everything I’ve written. And this review really felt as though he “got” the book, which, to an author, is one of those moments you cherish, whether from a reviewer or a reader. That’s why we write, kids. That’s what makes this calling special.

My favorite line? “All in all, The Coyote is a significant book, and comes highly recommended.”

There are still a few copies of the hardcover available through the publisher or via eBook. Just click on one of the covers below and you’ll be magically transported.

Killer F9 Review

Here’s another great review at Literary Mayhem. Thanks to Peter Schwotzer for the kind words. I’m anxious for this one to get into the hands of my faithful readers.

A quick blurb: “McBride continues to amaze with the depth of his talents and imagination.”

Bring on June!


First Review of F9

Thanks to Mallory Heart and the GMTA Literary Community for the killer review! I couldn’t be more pleased.

My favorite line: “[F9] is an electrifying psychological suspense story, with plenty of violence for the splatterpunk aficionados, coupled with high-intellectual science and wonderfully depicted character motivation.”

More news to come.

2012 Readers Choice Award

It is my distinct honor to announce that SNOWBLIND has been voted the best novella of 2012 by the people who matter most: the readers. You can check it out HERE. My congratulations to Tim Curran and Ronald Malfi for their killer work and for what was undoubtedly a brutal decision for the voters. And to all of my friends and readers…THANK YOU! None of this is possible without you!



The DarkFuse Readers Choice Award is voted on exclusively by book club members (hardcover & Kindle). This is a truly unique award not governed by a panel, fueled by a social popularity campaign or lobbied for by the authors.  It is voted on by those who matter most, which are the readers.

Each quarter every book club member receives an e-ballot to vote on which book they felt was superior that quarter as judged by the quality of the fiction. The winners of all 4 quarters are then added to a final ballot which is again sent to all book club members.  The author whose book is the reader’s choice winner, receives:

  • Cash prize
  • Engraved award
  • Promotional Focus / Push


DarkFuse editors receive 400-600 manuscripts per year.  24 are given contracts.  4 are voted into the final ballot by book club members.  And only 1 is chosen by the readers to be the best.
