Saturday at Keen Halloween…

I Read “The Hair” a short story in Twisted Nightmares for the Keen to Read horror story reading panel.  Spent some time at my publisher’s table selling and signing some books.  It was a good time.  Here are some pictures…Click to see whole picture and caption…

Please Buy Blood Bank, my 5th Novel, Just Out Now!

Blood Bank is an adventure that takes place in a post-apocalyptic world with the strange start of a clerk who tracks blood for the controlling monsters.  My beta readers say it’s the best book I’ve written so far.  Your patronage is MUCH appreciated, as are any reviews posted to Amazon.  (Pardon my gratuitous begging…)

Here is the cover, illustrated by Alfred Trujillo and Cara Nicole at 183 Degrees studios.  Thanks to my publisher at Arizona Publishing Services, LLC.  There is also an alternative cover with Cara Nicole as the character Shawna which will be available on Kindle and at special convention events.


Here is the Amazon link to purchase:


Here is a brief description off the back cover:  William believes he is the only non-bitten human left in the world. He spent his entire life raised by vampires to run their blood bank and keep track of deposits and withdrawals. One day, young Shawna, a human who grew up in the wild is dropped into his prison for companionship. Neither William nor Shawna really understand the world in which they live and they both become unwitting pawns in a final power play by their vampire Overlords.

Book Signing June 1st in Payson – Todd’s Books on Main Street

A special shout out to Patti Hulstrand and fellow authors who have allowed me to sit in on a book signing during the Payson First Friday Main Street Art Walk June 1, 2012 from 5pm to 8pm.  We will be out front of Todd’s Books, located at:

408 West Main StreetPaysonAZ 85541 928-474-0560

I will be selling signed copies of my books at a discounted rate.  You can be the first to see me in my new bionic form, with over ten pounds of ceramics, plastic and titanium holding me together post op.







Payson’s Art & Antiques District on historic Main St holds a party on the first Friday of each month and everyone is invited.  You can enjoy live music, check out the many classic cars on display, and indulge in hot dogs and brats served up by the Kiwanis Club.  Most businesses remain open until 8 pm with many offering free refreshments.

First Friday on Main Street Art & Antiques Walk is an event that fits well with Payson’s neighborly tradition.  Walking this historic Art & Antiques District where Payson’s first residents gathered for social events including rodeos and dances; it’s fun to stroll and read the historic markers on many of the local businesses.  Included in the unique and eclectic shops lining Main St from the Beeline to Green Valley Park, are the many friendly faces of local merchants.  Expect a story or two about the history of each store.
