Creation Book Release


The End of the World Has Never Been So Much Fun

Creation Book Release.jpgSo partly because my schedule is so chaotic at the moment and partly because the folks at Confessions of a Reviewer are such awesome people, the Confessions team will be running and hosting a Facebook Release Party for book 3 in The Creation Series.

The event will be March 20th, 8:30-11:30 EST and you can sign up here: 


There will be a host of cool give-aways available from some of the top horror and dark fiction authors on the market today, plus a chance to win a signed copy of the entire Creation Series, books 1-3, as well as some other guaranteed give-aways for all who attend.

It’s going to be a blast – so mark your calendars and spread the word. The end of the world has never been so much fun!

What is The Creation Series?

Burning city. Disaster concept. You can put your design on the city


With the final edits delivered on book 3 in The Creation Series, we officially have a release date. March 20th the end of one world will prove to be the beginning of another, and I couldn’t be more excited to be bringing this series to its epic conclusion.

For those of you not familiar with The Creation Series, I thought I’d share a bit of how these books came to be. In what feels like a lifetime ago, I had the chance to live in the country of Venezuela for a few years while on a service mission for my church, spending some time in a remote town on the outskirts of the Amazon Rainforest. Later in life, after completing my debut novel, Housebroken, I decided I wanted to explore an idea where horror and faith collide and couldn’t escape the recurrent thought that — like most ideas for a novel — began with the magic “what if” …

What if a ‘god-like’ being arrived on this earth with the intentions of starting life over? And what if, as its blueprint, it used the basis of the 7 days of the creation, as recounted in the Bible? 

And that’s where the horror elements crept in, for rather than simply creating light and darkness or plants and animals, this being would distort them to extremes. Blinding light and complete darkness. Water literally separated from the earth. And wait till you meet the “beasts and creeping things.”

(And yes, that’s the language used in the Bible!)

But a high concept is only as good as the characters that inhabit the world of the story, and The Creation Series more than anything is an exploration of the frailties of man. There are no heroes in this story, only men and women who are as flawed as any of us in real life. Toss these characters — each with their own agendas and complexities — into the boiling pot of the plot taking place around them and you’ve got a stew that is sure to delight and horrify, all at the same time. Then place both the events and characters in the unique setting of the Amazon Rainforest, and it’s a story I haven’t seen anything quite like.

Part thriller, part sci-fi, part horror, this series breaks the boundaries genres normally operate in, but if you’re a fan of speculative fiction with a dark twist I invite you to dive in.

In celebration of the launch of book 3, The Creation: Gods and Man, the first book in the series will be on sale for just $0.99 for the entire month of March. And if a buck is too steep of an entry price, you can whet your appetite on Part Zero – The Creation: In The Beginning, which is free on Amazon, to determine if the story grabs you.

More to come this month, including a chance to win signed copies of all 3 books in the series, so stay tuned and please, help spread the word!

Grab book one while on sale!


This is a thriller of the highest order. It will intrigue you and excite you and, to be quite frank about it, will have you begging for more. Highly recommended.”

     — Confessions of a Reviewer

“The Creation is a story that captured my complete, undivided attention from the first to the very last page … the emotions felt as if they were “bleeding” off the page. Highly recommended!”

     — Horror After Dark

“From the boardrooms of corporate America to the jungles of the Amazon, this novel completely captivated me.”

Joseph Souza, best-selling author of Unpaved Surfaces


Confessions of a Reviewer tackles “HOUSEBROKEN”

It’s always an unexpected surprise to get a notice that one of your books has been reviewed by a review site you respect, even better when said review makes you want to read your own book.

Nev Murray’s fantastic Confessions of a Reviewer site finally got to a book I submitted to them sometime last year. I don’t know the reviewer, Elaine Pascal, but man can she write! Seriously, one of my favorite reviews. Check out this snippet:

Contemporary fiction nihilistically portrays the consequences of complacent inaction, but none with more gusto than Housebroken.

Check out the full review of HOUSEBROKEN, and if you haven’t yet read it yourself, Amazon has the book on a special promo this month as part of their Prime Reading program where for Prime members you can pick up the book for free.

Housebroken is a fantastic horror novel that is not for the faint of heart. I have not been this swept away by a thriller in a long time!

Thanks again to Elaine and the Confessions team.



The Behrg Reviews: “The Picture of Dorian Gray” by Oscar Wilde

Dorian GrayThere are two camps of “classic” books, those which you can appreciate for having been important in their time but that really don’t hold up, and those which somehow defy the passage of years much as Dorian Gray himself. This was shockingly relevant and literarily brilliant, and it’s hard to imagine this was originally published back in the 1890’s.

The beautiful thing about this novel is that it’s really a story about each of us. Hiding behind masks, creating a persona which we present to the public, while only ever allowing ourselves to glimpse the darker secrets of the soul when hidden in our personal attics. This is a novel that bears self reflection, that forces the reader to examine their own lives, something only truly great fiction can accomplish.

Far better than I had hoped for. Hope this is a trend that will continue for this year’s reads. And right now you can pick up the book for free on Amazon. If you haven’t yet checked this one out, no better time to do so.
