Busy days.

Recently I released Macabre Moments which is a horror anthology and is presently available on Amazon and Smashwords. Soon, though I'm not sure exactly when I will also have a piece coming out in Terror By Gaslight which is a multi-author horror anthology. Some of the guys that are in it are really very talented writers having read some of the other pieces they’ve written in other books. The piece I wrote is one I'm really proud of; it’s really quite the delightful bit of horror and was a hell of a lot of fun to write.

I've also been working on my part of a shared world novel, "Not To Yield" that will be released by Perseid Press. It's sci-fi of all things and I'll admit I'm having a bit of time envisioning some of the things that I'm attempting to write in my part. What can I say, I guess it's a little easier I guess for me see demon possession, murder and vicious vampires. You know, all the fun stuff. I am getting better acquainted with my DVD player for the next few days and am watching some sci-fi on purpose so I can get more of a feel my "Not To Yield" bit.

 I'm hoping to soon be working on a novella. We'll see how the ideas play out though. If I run with what's coming together in my head, it will probably end up a bit gory. I won't go any further than that right now but there's a lot of ideas in interplay together and some are quite good.

Dream Project

You have the opportunity to hire anybody as your cover artist. If you write children's books or books that are heavily illustrated, who would you get for the interior artwork? If I had a choice of any cover artist in the world it would be Tammie Clarke Gibbs. Who would you co-write your next novel with? I don’t know What genre? It will be in horror. Why? I just like writing horror. You know, all the fun stuff, murder, mayhem, demon possession. Your publisher wants to do an audiobook version of your novel and they're not sparing any expense. Who do you think can narrate your masterpiece? I don’t have a clue. They're really going all out! Your novel is getting a full soundtrack. Who should compose it? If your novel uses a lot of songs, list your compilation here. Actually it would either be Iron Maiden or Metallica Congratulations! Your novel is being turned into a major motion picture. As the creator of the original work, you get to pick the director. There are a couple of my short stories I would want Billie Bob Thorton. On the rest that I write I’m kind of clueless. The director has some ideas on who to cast, but you get to cast one character. What role/character is it and who portrays them? The one character I would probably do the Stephen King or Alfred Hitchcock and do some stand in bit part. One of my favorites of that kind of thing would be Stephen King delivering pizza’s to Rose Red. You've been hired to write a novel based on a preexisting character or franchise from another medium. Which character or franchise is it? Actually, I would like to write something where Jack the Ripper is brought to life again. It's the anniversary of your favorite literary character's debut. You've been hired (yay, work!) to write an anniversary novel. Who is the literary character? I mostly write short stories so that’s a difficult one to answer especially after 16 books. I have a lot of characters to go through.
