Great publishing news! Writing often seems to be "feast or famine" meaning you often experience a long stretch without producing anything of note and then suddenly have an abundance of new material go to print.
Just in the past month, I've sold four new short stories to publications that I am very excited to be a part of!
My story, "Experiments in an Isolation Tank" will be featured in the anthology, CHIRAL MAD. This is an amazing collection with the most beautiful artwork for a cover that I've seen in awhile. Cover art is important as it speaks immediately to the quality of the book's contents. I am thrilled to share the Table of Contents with some fantastic authors that I have long admired, including JACK KETCHUM, GARY BRAUNBECK, GENE O'NEILL, GORD ROLLO, and several others.
My story, "Last Night…" will be featured in the anthology, MARK OF THE BEAST - New Legends of the Werewolf. Nice to get back to some of the "traditional" horror monsters once in awhile. This turned out to be one of my favorite stories that I've written.
My story, "The Ghost of Ozzie Hobbs" will be featured in the anthology, The Ghost IS the Machine. I wrote a story for this collection just so I could be in a publication that features NY Times Bestselling author (and son of Stephen King) JOE HILL!
My story, "Groundhog Day" will be featured in the newest "Best Of" anthology, (still pending title) by THE HORROR ZINE. This should be another successful and amazing collection, based on the successes of the last anthologies. www.thehorrorzine.com
The Horror Zine's last "Best Of" anthology, FEAST OF FRIGHTS, (that I was also a part of) included Simon Clark, Graham Masterton, Joe R. Lansdale, Scott Nicholson, Cheryl Kaye Tardif, Joe McKinney, Susie Moloney, Tom Piccirilli, Ed Gorman, and Jeff Strand. It was recently reviewed by FANGORIA MAGAZINE!

Hoping to keep the momentum going, although I don't have that much time to write new material while working on my latest anthology, AFTER DEATH...
