October Update!

Happy Spooky Month! Hope you're all feeling the Halloween vibes. 🎃

After working really hard on several first drafts, editing, and two revision projects during the last four months, I took a break during October.

Well, my idea of taking a break means catching up on things, sorting stuff around the apartment, reading as much as I can, and reviewing the books I get through.

I do have a few things to announce, though: 

I'm now represented for TV/Film by Alec Frankel at IAG! ☺️🎉 Essentially, that means that if anyone's interested in adapting one of my books into a movie or show, I now have an agent who can deal with all the very complicated details.

It's very exciting.

SUFFER THE DARKNESS is now available in audiobook. It's narrated by Jennifer Pickens who did a fantastic job setting the tone and keeping the creepy vibes alive throughout the whole book. This is the first time one of my stories has been turned into an audiobook. And I love how it turned out. 

Here's a snippet:

Earlier this month, author Lauren Carter, announced the TOC for her Short Scares anthology. This is a charity project that features 69 two-sentence stories written by 69 different authors. This is such a unique collection of really short tales and I had a great time coming up with my contribution. So happy to be included with so many great authors.

It will be released next year.

Over a month has passed since BEAST OF BURDEN was released. It's a short novella that I had a blast writing. The paperback is now available. It's more like a chapbook, and I think that's why it's not getting much attention. Everyone likes a dual eBook and print release, I suppose.

Still, there's an awesome review on Goodreads by someone who totally gets the story. Love when someone connects with one of my stories the same way I do. ☺️

If you're interested in checking it out, you can grab a copy HERE.

Do you NaNoWriMo? I’ve been taking part in NaNoWriMo since 2006 and only skipped one year. I’ve even had several of these novels published. I love taking part because it's a fun challenge. Besides, I usually write first drafts in a very fast and frenzied fashion, so it totally suits me.

This year, I’m writing this: Heathers meets IT, with a touch of The Craft and a little pinch of The Exorcist. So it's basically a story about a group of friends with a very dangerous secret, the place they all want to forget, and an old mystery that bubbles to the surface. I think it's going to be fun and bloody and hopefully creepy.

Well, that's about it for now. There are a few other things brewing but I can't talk about them yet. ☺️

I hope you all have a fantastic and spooky Halloween!
