As time passes by I seem to be working on more projects but feel I am getting less done. That been said there have been a few new releases and a few more in the pipeline.
My Kindle short 'The Gatekeeper' is free on Amazon on the 29th and 30th of July.
My new, co-written novella, 'You Only Get One Shot is also available for 99p/$1.28 and free on Kindle unlimited.
A new antho that contains my story 'The Games' was released yesterday. Tales From the Braided Pony. It's a western themed horror antho that looks pretty amazing. Just waiting on my copy coming through in the mail. My story is a little homage to Richard Laymon as he is the main reason I love horror literature.
You can find all my books and the ones I'm featured in on my Amazon page.
I recently watched two horror movies that were pretty good, Knock Knock and Circle. Nothing else I've watched recently is worth recommending.
I've haven't had a whole lot of reading time recently but I just finished Hell Divers 2, which was outstanding. I can not wait for the 3rd book in this series to come out. If you haven't read the first book, go and have a look at it. It was the best book I read in 2016.

"This was a fun story. Scary as heck for an author to read. Would I dare to say I didn’t enjoy it? Probably not. Good thing I did!"

I haven't posted here for a while so I thought it was time to update you all on what's been going on.
I was recently a guest on the Panic Room radio show, chatting with James Longmore and Xtina Marie. Author Mike Duke was on before me then I come on around the 50 minute mark. As always people talk to the Scottish about the weather but it gets fun after that. ;)
On the reading from it's been a pretty good year so far. I started off with Punch from J.R. Park. I had never read the author but I had fancied the book for a while. I'm a big fan of boardway/seaside tales and this was a great one to start the year with. If you haven't read it yet take a look. I left a review on Goodreads.
I read Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis next which absolutely blew me away. I find Anne Rice to be hit and miss but this book was a tremendous entry to the series. If you haven't read the Vampire Chronicles I doubt that it's for you though.
Mark Mathews On The Lips of Children was next. Another good read but I didn't enjoy it as much as my first two reads of the year. Again you can find out my reasons why on Goodreads.
I've just finished Heart Shaved Box by Jeff O'Brien. Absolutely loved it. I do enjoy a Bizarro tale but normally stick to Carlton Mellick. For funny books I go to Jeff Strand and for crazy I generally go to Edward Lee. This short story reminded me of all three authors. It was a great tribute to the 80s and just plain mental. Will be reading more by Jeff.
I'm currently reading Discoredia by J.C. Michael and the Language of Dying by Sarah Pinborough. Both are excellent so far.
I think I finished last year on only 48 books read, way less than ever before and I want to fix that. This year I plan to both read and write more. With that being said I suppose an update is appropriate on what I am working on. I currently have a novella subbed to a publisher with J.C. Michael called 'You Only Get One Shot'. We are waiting to hear back on whether they like it or not at this stage. I'm working on s novelette with author Weston Kincade which we plan to sub to the Chiral Mad 4 anthology and I'm working on my next solo novella which has a working title of 'The Prison'. I may be putting another anthology together in the next few months but it's very early stages on that so far.
Goodreads Reviews here.
I think that is all for now. I've watched a few horrors recently but nothing was outstanding. As Above, So Below was okay, nothing special, The Girl With All the Gifts was pretty enjoyable but most others seem to have disliked it by the sounds of things on Facebook and The Green Room was pretty good. I'm not sure I would label the Green Room as horror but it's on Netflix as a horror and others seem to be saying it's a slasher flick. Either way I quite enjoyed it.
Until next time...........
