I’m also excited to announce that I have signed with Crossroad Press to republish my out-of-print horror novels THE LAMPLIGHTERS (Bram Stoker Award® Finalist for Best First Novel), THE JACK IN THE GREEN and THE SKINTAKER. It feels good to be getting these evil offspring back into print! Crossroad Press did such a wonderful job publishing my DANIEL GATES ADVENTURES series of occult horror novellas.
I will post updates about cover art, release dates, and such, as and when I get them.
