SEMINAR is a Kindle Book Review Award Semi-Finalist!

September 20th, 2020

I'm happy that SEMINAR was recognized as a semi-finalist by the Kindle Book Review in its annual 2020 awards! This means it made the genre Top 20 list for Horror / Suspense and earned the KBR badge. It's a tough contest, and some commercially recognizable names grace the list. I spotted Paul Levine and CHEATER'S GAME, his latest, on the Myste... Read More

SEMINAR publication day!

April 1st, 2019

SEMINAR is out today! You can find it here. I'm thankful a few nice pre-release reviews have already posted to Goodreads: "I have attended a lot of business seminars in my career, but nothing quite like the one this story shows us." "The book or prequel, starts out innocent enough, but when the story gets going you are thinking that thi... Read More

SEMINAR available on April 1!

February 24th, 2019

SEMINAR is available for pre-order on Amazon and is now listed on Goodreads! This short read (about 45 pages) is part of the MEASURE OF DANGER universe and is a prequel to the series. If you've read either MOD or SOURCE, you'll definitely enjoy it. If you're looking for something completely standalone, this isn't designed for that, but you'll... Read More

My Kindle giveaway odds…and Eagles v. Vikings

January 21st, 2018

At the time of this posting, there are four days left in this Kindle giveaway for SOURCE. It's a great opportunity with great odds...there are 100 copies and 129 sign ups the last time I checked. It's also a new program for Goodreads, and I love the idea. The print giveaways have been active for years, but my pet peeve with them is that I've observe... Read More

Cover Reveal for SOURCE!

March 7th, 2017

The sequel to MEASURE OF DANGER is coming in May! I thought I would put the new cover out there to make it real. If you read MOD, then you know who that is on the cover. She is front and center in this story!   Read More

Much better late than never

May 15th, 2016

I submitted the original version of MEASURE OF DANGER for a Publishers Weekly review two years ago and assumed it had been passed over. I'm grateful that it has now received attention, and it was worth the wait! The review on the PW site is here.   Read More

Publication Day is here!

June 16th, 2015

When I began MEASURE OF DANGER a few years ago, there was always that question of whether it would be worth the effort. I now understand this feeling isn't unusual for new authors. Rarely did I have doubts about finishing my first mental marathon, though. Like a race, sometimes when it hurts, you repeat to yourself in your mind: just don't stop. ... Read More

MEASURE OF DANGER: New cover reveal + signed book giveaway

April 16th, 2015

More excitement! MEASURE OF DANGER received its new cover, created by Scott Barrie of Cyanotype, as part of its Thomas &  Mercer publication. Initial feedback has been great, and I think it captures the creepy mood of the story better than the original. MOD is now posted on Amazon with a 6.16.2015 publication date, but it's also availabl... Read More

Words like a milk shake…

March 13th, 2015

I submitted the final-final proofreading corrections for MEASURE OF DANGER this week. It was fun, but I’m relieved it’s over. I remember when this process started, and the corrections to the manuscript had the word “CMOS” annotated everywhere. As a new author, I’d never seen the acronym in this context before. CMOS wasn't referring t... Read More

Escape is never boring

February 7th, 2015

Escape is one of the strongest themes in literature and film, especially in the thriller genre. I'm a sucker for prison breaks, daring rescues, and even the slow, methodical pursuit of feeedom if well-plotted. It's a suspense and action hook that never grows old. Add mental or emotional escape to a physical escape (an advantage a book has over a... Read More
