Into-the-Dark-cover

Six weeks ago a mysterious virus came out of nowhere and engulfed the world.

Jeff Blaine did his best to hold his family together and protect them from the horrors scratching at their door. But, in the end, they were ripped away from him like everything else that ever mattered.

Lost and alone, Jeff’s only option is to destroy as many of the monsters as he can. But when he discovers Megan, George, and Jason, three other survivors not interested in giving up just yet, he reluctantly accepts that there might still be a reason to fight and live to see another day.

Traveling through the blasted landscape of their new fallen world, the quartet discovers that the living dead aren’t the only danger with which they must cope. Even other survivors who promise safety and security from the hordes of ghouls roaming the wastelands will test loyalties and their faith in humankind.

Jeff and his small band of newfound friends must forge a semblance of life in the newly blighted world. And they will have only the light of their own humanity by which to navigate as everything around them descends into the dark.


Permuted released “Into The Dark” in ebook format!

Things move quickly around here.  It wasn’t too long ago that I was touting the re-release of Comes The Dark from Permuted Press.  Suddenly, it’s time for the release of the second book, Into The Dark, in ebook format!  As with the first book, the Dark Stories I originally created to be a part of the books are back in each individual release, added to the end of the main story.  So the reader has the opportunity to delve deeper into the lives of the secondary characters introduced in each book in a short story format.  Check it out…and if you don’t mind, leave a review on Amazon, Goodreads, or at Barnes and Noble if you have the time.  Thanks!

My editor interviews me for her Facebook page

When I moved my trilogy over to Permuted Press, I had the privilege of getting to work with Felicia Sullivan, editor extraordinaire.  She had actually taken a look at the original version of Into the Dark before it went to print and helped me out with some advice about it, which I appreciated a great deal.  This was after we met at Horror Realm in September of 2010-shortly after the original release of Comes the Dark.  But when she was assigned to edit my trilogy by Permuted, she dove into the novels and helped to polish them up to a greater extent than ever before.  And she knows my secret-my kryptonite as it were-when it comes to my writing.  No, I’m not going to tell you what that is!  But it is something I have worked hard at correcting ever since she lent me this insight and I am far better for having realized this particular failing of mine.

Felicia has her own Facebook page and not too long ago she asked me if I would like to be interviewed by her.  So we discussed my work, my perspective on writing, and what my plan is for the zombie apocalypse.  (To bug out, or not to bug out…).  It was a fun little interview, and I appreciated the chance to once again plug my work.  That interview was posted on her page today.

So if you would be so kind, take a few minutes and head on over to her page, “like” it, and check out my interview with the lovely Felicia Sullivan.

The cover of the Permuted Press version of “Into The Dark” revealed!

I showed the cover of the Permuted Press version of Comes the Dark a while back and now that the second book cover has been released, it is time for the big reveal.  This one is a bit different, though it sticks with a similar theme as with the first with a similar background.  Definitely different than the original version from Philip R. Rogers, with both being excellent depictions of the main character and the theme of the novel.  Into The Dark will be released in March of 2013, with additional content-over 24,000 words in the expanded story.  So here it is, without further ado.
