Hey, that’s me! The Horror Writers Association interviewed me for Women in Horror Month. And that’s just awesome. Swing by here if you get a chance!

THE HALL OF PROFESSIONAL AUTHORS: THE NO FUN LEAGUE I recently read an article by a professional fiction writer in my genre. This article pointed out a list of things this particular author didn’t want to see any more of in 2017. While there were a couple of things I agreed with, the majority of […]

Hey, friends. I have a new novel about to launch on March 15th, but this is no ordinary release. Not only is my full-length novel EXORCIST FALLS coming from Sinister Grin Press, but included in the same volume will be the novella that started it at all, EXORCIST ROAD, for the first time ever in print.

Here’s the glorious Matthew Revert cover:


In case the notion of two books in one sounds daunting (for those of you after a brisk read), the total word count will end up around 104,000. For a point of reference, CHILDREN OF THE DARK was 93,000 words, and WOLF LAND was about 118,000.

You can preorder EXORCIST FALLS right here for Kindle, and soon the paperback will be available everywhere as well. Oh, and the synopsis:

Chicago is gripped by terror. The Sweet Sixteen Killer is brutally murdering young women, and the authorities are baffled.

Global Book Sales Domination!!! An Author Trying to Help Other Authors!

Great Advice

Lurking In The Shadows

Did that heading get your attention?  I hope so.

I’m writing this in hopes that I can give some small advice to other Indie Authors (cause I’m such an expert…ha ha ha).  I have learned some things, so why shouldn’t you?

This may not be the ultimate way to conquer the world with your writing, but it may help with sales a bit.  I live in the US.  We have our own Amazon site.  Did you know that there are multiple Amazon sites throughout the world?  Honestly, I really didn’t before I found all this out a year or so ago.  Did you also know that if you promote your book using the Amazon.US link, no one can buy your book through that link outside the US? Sure, if they search their own Amazon site with your name, book title, etc. they will find you, but the link itself won’t work.
