What’s New

Book Launch Party Now Viewable

We recorded the live stream of our book launch party for Someone Else’s Story, and Gayleen’s books The Man Who Lost His Pen, and Lightning Strike Blues. The video proved to be highly unreliable, as you’ll hear in the stream, and so I’ve just kept the audio. This will prevent you from seeing Gayleen’s lovely face, but it will ALSO spare you from the view of my hips and waist that led me to my current weight loss journey.

I think it’s worth a listen. You can hear it right here.

Appearance on WROTE Podcast

I’ll be appearing on the WROTE Podcast on December 22, 2023 to promote Someone Else’s Story. We had a lot of fun chatting, and I’ll keep y’all apprised with links and details as the week goes on.

Launch Party for Someone Else’s Story

Thursday October 12, 2023, Gayleen Froese and I are holding a book launch party for Someone Else’s Story, and for her books The Man Who Lost His Pen and Lightning Strike Blues.

It is taking place at the Alberta Avenue Community League in Edmonton (9210 118 Ave NW) from 7-10 pm.

We will be live streaming the event on Facebook, and you can watch it right here as well.

Release date for Someone Else’s Story

The current release date for the book is July 7, 2023. Things are moving quickly right now, and I’m in the midst of doing the promotional things I still feel awkward in doing. I’m going to send out ARCs to reviewers soon, as we’re finishing the last edits. If anyone can recommend a good review site, please let me know. Also? Watch this space. I will probably have a cover reveal soon as well.

Someone Else’s Story To Be Released 2023

I’m pleased to announce that my semi-sequel to both Silver Bullets and Sleeping Underwater, Someone Else’s Story is going to be released by The Seventh Terrace in the Spring/Summer of 2023. It’s a bit of a departure for me in that it’s mostly an action-comedy. It’s largely about the Frankenstein Monster and his connection to Sel Souris, and to William S. Burroughs. It’s a very strange bit of work, but I truly do love it.

I’ll keep you posted as more developments come to light.

Sleeping Underwater Hardcover Edition

My publisher The Seventh Terrace has released a hardcover edition of Sleeping Underwater. It also includes all the material from my self-published collection Souria. I’m pretty jazzed that the book gets another shot to get out there and sell. COVID made a mess of our ability to attend conventions and really give it a push. It can be purchased online here in the US, or here in Canada. You can also request your local bookshop order it in. I’m happy to send signed bookplates for it on request.

Sleeping Underwater Second Edition

My former publisher, Coffin Hop Press has decided to scale back to anthologies only, and this left Sleeping Underwater briefly without a home. I’m pleased to announce the book has been picked up by The Seventh Terrace for a second edition with minor corrections and the back cover slightly adjusted. It looks great and I’m happy to let you know it’s available for purchase.

If you are in Edmonton, please stop by Glass Bookshop, and purchase a copy from them. You can also ask your local booksellers to order a copy for you.

If you wish you can also purchase the paperback on Amazon here in Canada, or here in the US. Ebook versions are also available here and here.

Sleeping Underwater Launch Video

For those who’d like to see it, here’s the reading and Q&A session hosted by the delightful Sarah L. Johnson. Sound is a bit rough, but here we go.

Sleeping Underwater Launch Party Nov. 28 in Edmonton

I’m pleased to announce a launch party for Sleeping Underwater on November 28, 2019.

It’s co-hosted by Glass Bookshop and The Nook Cafe. We’ll be at The Nook at 10153 97 St NW in Edmonton. The event is from 7-9 p.m. Books will be on sale at the event from the folks at Glass. and I’ll be happy to sign them.

There will be a reading, a Q&A session, some door prizes and general frivolity. I’m asking my fans and friends to wear something purple and JOIN THE SWARM. We all hope to see you there.

Wall of Fire Launch Party

I was happy to attend the Wall of Fire Launch Party on November 22, 2019. My good friends Rob Bose and Sarah L. Johnson, authors of Wall of Fire, invited me up to participate, and to have my books for sale at their merch table. It was a great night with great people, and I signed my very first copy of Sleeping Underwater to a person I do not know. That was a rare, and perfect delight.

L-R (Robert Bose, yr author, Sarah L. Johnson)

While there, I also got to actually MEET Rob and Sarah, both of whom were instrumental in Sleeping Underwater making it to press. I’ve known them both on Facebook for sometime, and meeting them was also a rare and perfect delight.

I’m a writer, and I have social anxiety, as many writers do, so I’m sure I was really bashful and weird, but I was ALSO extremely happy.

With credit to that overworked pink shirt.

I also had the chance to reconnect with good friends from ELEMENTARY school, one of whom drove three hours to see me, which makes me a little weepy-eyed. It was rather like rediscovering siblings you forgot you had.

Book Trailers for Sleeping Underwater

There are now a couple of book trailers for Sleeping Underwater. There’s a short one designed to hopefully get people curious, and a special extended version that gives a little more information on the island of Sel Souris. Feel free to share these on social media. In fact, I more or less beg you to. Do me a solid. Promote this book, would you?

These clips have closed captions for those of you sneaking a glance where you can’t have the sound going. Hope you like them.
