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!

The End is Coming …

This God will destroy it in even less.”

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.

Because Who Doesn’t Love a Free Book?

Sadly the word FREE, as it goes with offering a product, often assigns a “value-less” attachment to whatever is being offered. Ebooks are no different, and with the desperation many authors face in trying to attract readers, it’s no surprise that this trend has affected — and disrupted — the wonderful world of reading.

There are, however, times when great books are offered at heavily discounted prices.

Recently, Amazon has introduced a new program called Prime Reading, in which Amazon Prime members can “borrow” up to ten ebooks at a time for absolutely no cost to the reader. Thousands of books are plugged into their rotating carousel of available books each month and, much like borrowing a book from a library, readers can check one out but WITHOUT accruing late charges.

My novel, HOUSEBROKEN, was a part of the introductory Prime Reading program when it first launched, and it was a great way to introduce my work to new readers during that time frame. Well, as the carousel continues its rotations, I thought I’d make you lovely readers aware of a few books you can download today for free that are part of this program, books you won’t want to miss.

Books You Can Download for FREE w/ Amazon’s Prime Reading:

1984First, do yourself a favor and pick up George Orwell’s fantastic dystopian novel, 1984. If you haven’t read this one yet, you’re in for a treat. In today’s world this little classic is looking more and more prophetic, and not in a good way.

Unpaved SurfacesFor a chilling character-driven suspense read, make sure you grab Joseph Souza’s award winning novel, Unpaved Surfaces. About the deconstruction and reconstruction of a family who has a child go missing, it’s a fantastic read.


melophobiaAnother dystopian novel that’s near and dear to my heart is Melophobia by James Morris. About a world where music is banned and musicians are fugitives, this one takes some surprising turns. Definitely one of my top reads for 2016.


twistedAuthor Andrew Kaufman has a dark thriller in the vein of Dennis Lehane’s Shutter Island that’s available. While I preferred Lehane’s execution, Twisted is still a great psychological thriller definitely worth checking out.


freelancer.jpgOff the beaten path from my normal dark reading, for fans of YA & sci-fi, I found Freelancer by Jake Lingwall a particularly clever novel. He’s created a futuristic world with hackers and drones and a protagonist you want to root for.


lewisAnother genre-blending novel is Forever by Linda Cassidy Lewis, who combines a gripping love story with a dark tale of possession. This definitely went in directions I wasn’t expecting and is an extremely memorable read.
