Coming Soon: Relics & Remains

I’ve placed a short story with the anthology Relics & Remains, due in March from Ambrotos Press. As you can see from the front cover, I’m in good company.

Check out that sweet front cover billing!

From the back cover:

People have always been fascinated about the past.  Some even going to great lengths to uncover what’s taken place long ago.  But sometimes when people venture into locations that aren’t suitable for the living, bad things can happen.

That’s when these self-proclaimed explorers start to unearth strange looking, ancient artifacts and the cursed remains of the once-living. They think they’re going to be rich and famous. But, that might just be the furthest from the truth. To them, taking that risk is what it’s all about… until things start to go wrong.

So, for those of you that are into ‘finding’ strange things, here’s some words of advice…

Proceed with caution when digging up someone else’s Relics & Remains.

More cool contributors.

The book will be released in both trade paperback and e-book formats. I’ll provide ordering information as it becomes available.

"The Deadly Gender" Imminent

We’re getting closer and closer to the release of Das Tödliche Geschlecht, the German-language edition of Deadliest of the Species from Otherworld Verlag. I’m told the German title translates to “the deadly gender,” which I think is a fair approximation. The original title is derived from a Kipling quote:

“For the female of the species is more deadly than the male.”

I’m assuming Kipling has been translated into German, so it shouldn’t be lost on my German readers any more than the average US reader.

The publisher has also sent me the final version of the cover art. It’s not changed much from previous versions of shared with you, they simply touched up the blood and the woman’s eyes.

Das Todliche Geschlecht - Final

They say we should see release on schedule in June. I’m excited, because this edition is probably going to have the largest print run to date of all my solo work and will probably see the most readers. I’ve been asked if it bums me out that the original English edition hasn’t seen a wider reprint yet, and I have to say no, I’m not.

Readers are readers, whatever language they speak or read. I’m a writer, and while it would be nice to make a living off of it and see more success in my home country, I just want to be read.
