6 Days Only!

For the next 5 days and 18 hours (as of the time of this posting), my novella F9 is on sale at Amazon for a mere 99 cents! This is one of my favorites. I wrote it to be kind of a sister piece to REMAINS, for those who of you who may be keeping score. Anyway, here’s a book about spree killers that suffered for being released at the same time as Sandy Hook, but I think serves as a great peek into the inner workings of the human (deviant) mind. Snag one now and enjoy!


Another Killer Review for AE!

Courtesy of Marvin P. Vernon at The Novel Pursuit blog. It’s another review where I feel as though the reviewer really got what I was trying to do with this one. My favorite line?

“I keep coming back to the character of Sani. This is the main strength of this novel and what makes this novel rise among many other books like it. Recommended.”

You can read the whole thing HERE.


Happy Launch Day

ANCIENT ENEMY has officially been released upon the world. For those of you who ordered the hardcover limited editions, you should have received a shipping notice. If you missed it, you can probably still find one through the publisher HERE. Otherwise, you can now download the eBook directly from Amazon HERE! I hope you guys love it! I’m anxious to hear what you all think.

Thanks to all of you for your continued friendship and support. Without you, none of this would be possible.



For those of you who’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of the BLOODLETTING eBook, it’s now live at Amazon. You can pick up what Dark Scribe Magazine called “the best thing I’ve read in a long, long time” HERE!

This is one of those books whose characters continue to beg for more tales to be told. Maybe if the audience is there, we’ll see Special Agents Carver, Wolfe, and Locke again…

The Thriller Roundtable

Come join me at the Big Thrill, the online publication of the International Thriller Writers, where I’ll be participating in the roundtable discussion “Is fact really stranger than fiction?” Joining me will be Laura Griffin, Philip Donlay, Kathleen George, Colin Campbell, Paige Dearth, Tom Wilde, Bernard Maestas, and Tim Waggoner. It’s off to an entertaining start! I enjoy these roundtable discussions and I’m psyched to be a part of one. I hope you can join us!


Coming in eBook this Tuesday, April 15th…BLOODLETTING…with a new, reimagined cover.

Bloodletting eBook_edited-1

The butchered remains of twelve year-old Jasmine Rivers are discovered in the cellar of an abandoned farmhouse on the desolate eastern plains of Colorado, the fourth mutilated body found in the last two months. The FBI is still searching for the missing parts of the previous three.

Hundreds of miles away in Arizona, eleven corpses are exhumed from the Sonoran Desert. They’ve been mummified and bundled in the traditional Inca style. But the Inca lived in South America, and these bodies aren’t centuries old.

Seemingly unrelated victims that share a common cause of death: exsanguination.

Special Agent Paxton Carver follows the trail of blood, which leads him to the continuation of genetic experimentation that began during World War II and a designer retrovirus capable of altering human chromosomes. Can he track down the virus and prevent further exposure before the real bloodletting begins?

Only $2.99 at Amazon!


Thanks to the kind folks at Mystery Sequels for the killer review. It feels like the reviewer really “got” the story. There’s no cooler feeling for an author. My favorite line?

“When I got to the last few pages and I thought I had it all figured out, I was rewarded with yet another surprise that left me thinking about it for a while. I definitely didn’t see that one coming.”

You can read the whole review HERE!

12 days and counting until release day! Head over to Amazon and pick up the eBook while it’s still 30% off! I don’t know how much longer the price will stay that low. Thanks to all who’ve picked it up so far. You guys are the best!
