Just found out I was accepted into the SFWA. I’m in a guild! I always wanted to be in a guild. Neat, huh? If that’s not an occasion for a double post… what is?
Got an email last night informing me I got that sweet, sweet Bookbub Featured Deal action for LURK. The ebook version will be free on Amazon from August 22-26.
This tale about the fall of an undead wizard, told in his own words, was my first foray into fantasy, originally published in last year’s “Ancient Enemies” monster anthology. If you like grimdarks, not-so-sympathetic villains, or fringe characters in general, check it out. Cover art by the incredible Laura Hollingsworth.
Hiya friends. I’m pretty thrilled right now. As of tonight, the Kindle version of LURK will have a new cover, which I think is pretty phenomenal. Take a lurk:
Why change it, you ask? Quite simply, I didn’t think the old cover was perfect for the book. In the vast literary jungle that is Amazon, there are hundreds of thousands of novels both traditionally and self-published that all have good covers, and to even get a click-through for someone to read your blurb these days, your cover can’t just be good… it needs to be eye-popping.
So… there it is.
Paperbacks will be updated sometime next week. And as always, if you haven’t read it yet, Part One is free to read here.
Quick announcement to let you all know that Lurk will be free all Thanksgiving on Kindle, from 11/22 – 11/26. That’s zero dollars. As in free ninety nine. As in five finger discount. As in the punchline of a bad “your mom” joke. So if you’ve been on the fence, know someone on the fence, or know someone who knows someone who has a fence and might possibly one day be on it (or just someone who is looking for an unsettling, creepy read), give them a recommendation and that there link.
And as always, if you read the book and enjoy it, please consider leaving an honest review.
