2023 Publication News:

Manor of Frights will be out now! This ambitious anthology combines a vertical tasting with Clue: each story takes place in a different room of the mansion and each one progresses a decade until we reach the present day. My story takes place in the boy’s room. It’s called “Nightbears.”

99 Fleeting Fantasies will be out late in the year from Pulse Publishing. Similar to last year’s 99 Tiny Terrors, this book — edited by Jennifer Brozek — will collect 99 fantasy stories that pass in a flash. My story “The Ambush Hunters” is one of them.

Earlier this year, my story “The Devil’s Debt” appeared in Occult Detective Magazine #9. It’s the first time my characters Alondra DeCourval and the succubus Lorelei cross paths. One of the reviewers thought the story owes a debt to Elmore Leonard!

“Petrichor Gothic,” the shortest story I’ve written yet appeared online at Spreading the Writers Word by way of the Ladies of Horror Fiction flash project. You can read it here.

Death’s Garden Revisited is a Finalist for the Next Generation Indie Book Awards in the Travel category.

I’ve updated my collection of Alondra stories, thanks to these fabulous new covers by Lex at Huntress Studios. Each book contains 3 stories, plus behind-the-story essays, about Alondra’s monster-fighting experiences from San Francisco to Prague to Tokyo to New Orleans. All four of them are available for your kindle on Amazon!

I have three pieces in the Horror Addicts Guide to Life #2, drawn from the Horror Addicts blog. The table of contents includes work by Martha J. Allard, Jonathan Fortin, Rena Mason, Lee Murray, and a whole lot more. Check it out here: https://amzn.to/3sbTNF6

As Above, So Below: The Complete Story — the ebook “box set” of the succubus/angel novels Lost Angels and Angelus Rose — is available now at Amazon!

My death-obsessed memoir, This Morbid Life, collects up the morbid personal essays I wrote for zines about surviving the AIDS epidemic, visiting cadaver labs, eating bugs, and more. The Amazon links are up, with more to come.
