New Signing!

As I said in my last post, my novel (tentatively titled They Crawl Within) was suddenly without a home. As luck would have it, the stars aligned, and the universal decided to smile upon me, and so, I’m happy to announce that it has been scooped up by Eerie River Publishing!

I’ve been following Eerie River for a little while now and have been impressed with their books, to say the least. And bonus, they are from my home province of Ontario!

The novel is currently scheduled for a fall 2022 release. Stay tuned for updates.

In the meantime, give Eerie River some love and check out their socials.

After much thought and deliberation, I’ve decided to remove my debut novel, They Crawl Within from Raven Tale Publishing. This was a tough decision, but one that I am ultimately comfortable with. There was no shady activity, nor nasty fighting between myself and the publisher, but rather it became clear to me that we had different ideas around the publishing of the book. Other than that insurmountable barrier (for me, at least), they were quite great to deal with and were really cool about the whole situation.

That does not mean that They Crawl Within will not be published, as a new, and somewhat unexpected opportunity might have arisen (like the old saying goes, when one door closes another opens). More on this soon, but for now, know that I am happy with where things stand and am focused on the upcoming release of my novella, We All Fall Before the Harvest.

We All Fall Before the Harvest

It’s official, my cosmic horror novella We All Fall Before the Harvest has been acquired by Timber Ghost Press! I wrote the book early this past summer and felt confident that it would find a home sooner rather than later. Stay tuned for more info about cover reveals and a release date.
