Fuzzy is coming July 12, 2023!

Book #34 in the Rewind or Die series by Unnerving Books, my debut novella, is available for Kindle preorder now and will be released on July 12th. This was a fun one to write, and I hope you all enjoy it.

My homage to the VHS horror movies I grew up watching forwards, backwards, and in slow motion. Okay, drugs may have been involved but weren’t necessary. The movies were a blast! Fuzzy is reminiscent of Piranha, Lake Placid, and Creepshow, with my own twisted sense of dark humor. A creature feature about a ravenous organism living in the geothermal water beneath a Canadian provincial park, Fuzzy is a fun, gory romp with an aging warden, monsters, and unsuspecting interlopers.

Huge thanks to all the people who have helped me along the way, especially Carina Bisset and C.C. Adams who read an early draft, giving me the fresh and expert eyes that I needed.

I’m incredibly grateful to Eddie Generous for giving Fuzzy and me this opportunity and for being such an amazing editor and publisher to work with. Just look at the gorgeous cover he designed!

Okay, I’m excited to share the news, so that’s it for now. You’ll be hearing more from me before July 12th. I’m planning some readings, giveaways and fun stuff, so watch for that. My apologies in advance if you get sick of me. ūüôā

Digital versions and preorders of Dark Matter Magazine Issue 009 are available now!

I am so excited for this release. It includes my story, “The Ground Shook”. This is one of my favorites. Meera arrived on the page and insisted her story be written. She’s determined to bring back her daddy, no matter what it takes or what might be happening in the world around her. Meera’s story is a dark, creepy, and emotional one, but not without love and hope.

A sample of Issue 009 is available here: https://darkmattermagazine.com/issues/issue-009/

Honored to share a table of contents with these amazing writers, Noah Codega, Andrew Sullivan, R.L Meza, Monte Lin, Rich Larson, Ai Jiang, Mark Joslyn, Warren Benedetto, Alex Woodroe, and Christi Nogle.
