The Deacon Chalk series is no longer being published by Kensington. I have decided to take the series over and independently publish it beginning with book four titled SILK AND SCALE (November 2013).
This is a move I am excited to make because I have many, many plans for Deacon Chalk and his wonderful crew of misfit monster hunters. Now I can carry on and remain 100% true to my vision for the characters and the storyline. It's going to be a wild ride!
Also in Deacon Chalk news BLOOD AND BULLETS (book 1) is now available in audio from Audible read by the illustrious Jim Beaver (Bobby Singer from Supernatural and Sheriff Shelby from Justified). All of the series so far has been optioned for audio.
I edited a double anthology of Sword and Sorcery from Seventh Star Press that is available now. If you would like a review copy please contact Seventh Star at:
In 2014 I will have a NEW series coming from Pro Se Press called CHAMPIONS OF HOLLOW EARTH. It will be four short pulp style novels released quarterly and with a companion anthology set in the same world. It's going to be a complete riot and I am very excited about it.
A LOT of short fiction will be available throughout 2014 in various and sundry anthologies from various and sundry publishers.
