CURTAIN CALL-My New Collection

Having a new book out is always exciting, and my newest release is particularly exciting for me because it's my first book with Cemetery Dance Publications. It's a 10 story collection entitled CURTAIN CALL AND OTHER DARK ENTERTAINMENTS.

This is particularly special and thrilling for me, because working with Cemetery Dance is a dream. They are a large outfit with a great reputation and they work with a lot of heavy-hitters, including Stephen King himself. Being able to say I have a title with them is a career high.

The collection is only available as a digital release, but I do not consider that any lesser of an accomplishment. I know some people who are devoted to print and simply will not do ebooks. I am not one of those people. I love print books, there is a tactile sensation to them that is intoxicating, and print books will never go away. They have real strengths--durability, for one--that ensures their survival. However, I think digital books have a place as well and will co-exist beside print books. As a reader, I just love story, I don't care the delivery system. Therefore, I consider a digital release just as "real" and exciting as a print release.

I actually got a chance to go on the news with the local NBC affiliate to promote the book as well as discuss digital versus print.


I am incredibly proud of CURTAIN CALL. The 10 stories are some of my favorites, many of them taking place in locations that are important to me as a person. I also have a story that is a follow-up to my novel OUTCAST.

I hope people will give the collection a try and enjoy it. To try to entice folks and get them interested, I did a series of YouTube readings from a few of the stories.

I hope you will forgive me for the long blog, but I am just beyond ecstatic about this release. CURTAIN CALL can be purchased here: https://www.amazon.com/Curtain-Call-Other-Dark-Entertainments-ebook/dp/B01MF8HW19/ref=la_B005C18L7Q_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1477347880&sr=1-1
