No rest for the wicked

Signed two contracts today, checked over a proof of my soon-to-be-released novella and with any luck, put the finishing touches on illustrations for a comic.

One of the contracts in question was for my novella The Last Night of October, which   Bad Moon Books will release this Halloween. I received a proof of the book today and man does it look sweet. The trade paperback edition will not only contain my creepy-as-hell story, but also three of my own illustrations and a killer intro by the Queen of Halloween, Lisa Morton! Luke Spooner of Carrion House has provided the breath-taking front cover art.

Signing the contract today really sets things in motion for its release on October 31!

The other contract was for a short story I wrote some time ago, called Only Son. It will appear in the e-magazine Voluted Tales, later this month.

Meanwhile I’ve been drawing like mad to complete chapter 4 of the comic series Allure of the Ancients: The Key to His Kingdom for Midnight Echo Magazine. the 10 page comic will appear in Issue 10, this November. You can view this special promo poster I made HERE.

Design work for the Horror Writers Association has also been coming through, which I’m really excited about because I’m getting my work out there to a much wider audience.

They recently unveiled the cover for the new e-book version of their previously published anthology Freak Show that I created (see below). I’ve also created new covers for another series of previously published HWA anthologies, but I can’t release them just yet.


I also whipped up a web banner for the 2013 edition of the Halloween Haunts blog series. You can see the one I created last year below.

Helping out the HWA for Halloween

All in all the last few months have been quite busy design-wise, which I’m very happy about, but I’m really keen to get back into the writing soon.
