Friends of the Macabre,
I’m rather proud to announce my new book, BENEATH THE JACK O’ LANTERN SKY: TALES OF SWEET HOLLOW, will be available for pre-order from Weird House Press this September!
“Strange are the secrets harbored in Sweet Hollow, a town luminous with legends, morbid with monsters, and crazed with killers . . . “
Once upon a time, I thought MATTERS MOST MACABRE was the best thing I’ve done, but I think this new book tops it handily. Its been a pleasure writing this collection of twelve tales and one novelette, and cannot wait to behold it in print.
Here is the book’s full back cover description:
Strange are the secrets harbored in Sweet Hollow… A Midwest town luminous with legends, morbid with monsters, and crazed with killers. Its hills and houses are haunted, its graveyard gales are billowed by bats, its citizens creeped upon by cemetery skeletons. Encompassing all—a hallowed, Jack O’ Lantern sky serves as the backdrop for the terrifying tales within this harrowing horror-collection.
In the town of Sweet Hollow, one must prepare themselves to encounter:
A Cult of Immortals Eager for Human Sacrifice.
A Haunted “Manor” That Is Not What It Appears.
A Fisherman Reincarnated into His Prized Catch.
The Formative Years of a Serial Killer.
An Old Dance Hall Waltzing with Corpses.
A Haunted House Mystery Bank (Coin-Operated).
And that’s only a few of the curiosities one may discover in the shops, streets, houses, and cemeteries of Sweet Hollow. If you long for a scare, then open your mind, and prepare yourself for a dark descent into madness and horror.
Sound like this book might be to your taste? Please consider ordering a copy this September! You can order it here, on the Weird House Press website: https://www.weirdhousepress.com/product/beneath-the-jack-o-lantern-sky/
In the meantime, I’m currently finishing up what may be a debut novel for next year (2023), working on a poetry book, and planning a month long retreat merely to catch up on reading and re-filling my inner well of ideas.
Wishing you the best this late summer and harvest season.
Morose, macabre, and maniacally yours,
