Book Release: Tales of Blood and Squalor

Tales of Blood and Squalor coverToday marks the release of Tales of Blood and Squalor, an anthology of that I edited for Dark Cloud Press.

We all know what blood is. It’s spilled accidentally. Or worse, on purpose—often ending in death. But squalor… a quality or state marked by filthiness and degradation from neglect or poverty. Sordid, wretched, seamy, seedy.

A short fiction anthology of horror and psychological thrillers, Tales of Blood and Squalor depicts wretched, low-class characters living in filth and poverty. With misery and blood.

A novelist a tad too committed to realism in her craft, a tourist thirsting for blood, the king of a trailer park dungeon…

These fourteen stories from Dark Cloud Press will scare you, shock you, and make you reel!

Book Release: THE ADAMSON FAMILY

YA Supernatural Novella Available for Kindle and in Paperback

Is this house haunted?

the-adamson-familyThere’s a creepy old house in the neighborhood. Even in 1977, everyone still says it’s haunted. Fifteen-year-old Rendo Flex doesn’t believe it—until he sees the face in the window.

Already struggling with the stigma of an institutionalized mother, Ren is tormented by his older sister, Calista, who is following their mother’s path toward mental and emotional instability. Why must he suffer for his family’s dysfunction? When Mom wants to leave the psychiatric halfway house for her first family visit in eight years, Ren decides to run away. That’s when he glimpses the ghostly face in the tower window.

Ren spends the night in the abandoned house to determine whether it’s haunted by the departed former resident known as “Crazy Betty.” Ren gains perspective on his problems by helping Jack, a fourteen-year-old runaway he finds camping out there.

Meanwhile, heartthrob Kayne Barber targets the fragile Calista as his first romantic conquest only to find she’s more than he can handle. After learning that Ren and Calista are related to the Adamsons, the scandalous family who once owned the Victorian house, Kayne uses his knowledge to pry the clinging Calista off his back—by painting her as the last in a long line of lunatics.

Torn between his personal happiness and protecting Calista, can Ren come to terms with a sister who’s mentally ill and take a stand to defend her?

Writing Update

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted, so I thought you deserved an update.The Surefire Method of Growing Rich

I’ve been hard at work this year writing non-fiction.

I recently released The Surefire Method of Growing Rich, a metaphysical guide to living the abundant life.

Response to a Concerned Heterosexual ChristianThis month I’ll be coming out with a trade paperback version of Response to a Concerned Heterosexual Christian, which is newly updated for Kindle.

I’m also working on a biblical study of everything the Bible has to say about Sodom and Gomorrah, as well as a biography/social commentary on a hippie evangelist from the Jesus Movement, Lonnie Frisbee.

You must admit, I’m eclectic.

I’ll keep you posted as things get published. In the meantime, thanks for your support!

I still love reviews on Amazon and Goodreads!
