“Dead Red” is Rockin’

My latest endeavor ‘Dead Red’ has passed the 100 page mark, and I am at the place where the piece is almost writing itself. I am hoping it will be a good follow-up to ‘Phantom Effect,’ that which comes out through Night Shade Books in early February, 2016. The pieces are nothing like one another, and I believe it was important not to try to duplicate. ‘Phantom Effect’ is possibly a once in a life-time phenomenon, and trying to “top” it would have been unwise. ‘Phantom’ is a serial killer piece going to the supernatural, filled with voice changes and time sequencing out of order to make a new sort of order. ‘Red’ is more about multiple characters and intricate, philosophical plotting. Both celebrate character, yet ‘Red’ is more the thinking piece. Both I hope will be considered page turners.

My short story ‘Soul Text’ will be coming out in August through Ghostlight, and I landed two pieces, one a piece of literary criticism titled, ‘Horror as Misinterpreted Literary Fiction’ and the short story ‘The Candle,’ in the upcoming Weird Fiction Review.

I have four pieces now that would be nice for the beginnings of a collection, and I might put something together mixing criticisms with stories. So far along with the above mentioned three I have ‘Tornados and O’s’ that appeared in The Turks Head Review a few months ago.

Currently, I am reading Alistair Cross’s first solo novel titled ‘The Crimson Corset.’ I am enjoying it.
