Brand New: Horror Addicts Guide to Life #2!  I have three pieces in this huge book, drawn from the Horror Addicts blog. The whole table of contents includes work by Martha J. Allard, Jonathan Fortin, Rena Mason, Lee Murray, and a whole lot more.

At this moment, Horror Addicts Guide to Life #2 is #1 in Philosophy and Reference Books on Amazon. Check it out here: https://amzn.to/3sbTNF6

The Kickstarter for Death’s Garden Revisited: Personal Relationships with Cemeteries was a rousing success. The campaign reached $5199, fulfilling all its stretch goals.

The book collects essays from cemetery docents, tourists, genealogists, urban explorers, ghost hunters, and more.

The book itself will be out in October 2022.

I’m in the process of editing a collection of short horror stories called Tales of Nightmares for Wily Writers. The book will be in July 2022! The table of contents isn’t entirely settled, it will include stories by Lisa Morton, Angel Leigh McCoy, E.S. Magill, Alison J. McKenzie, and Bill Bodden.

“Guardian of the Golden Gate” will appear in Tales of Dread, edited by Lisa Morton. That should be out in June 2022.

“The Devil’s Debt” will appear in an upcoming issue of Occult Detective magazine.

2021 Publication News:

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.

I read a true ghost story from This Morbid Life for Fright Girl Autumn.
