December 2018 update
THE LONG WAY HOME — the hardcover edition is nearly sold out. Our copies from PS Publishing should arrive next week. We will ship them out immediately. A trade paperback and eBook will be available in the Spring. I just sold audio rights. More details soon.
MURDER HOUSE — currently showing at many festivals. Has already won several awards. We have turned down two legit offers to have it included in anthology-type feature films and one offer for distribution. It WILL be available later in 2019 through iTunes, Amazon Prime and many other venues.
TRAPPED — Billy and I have watched several cuts and are thrilled with the job the Sympatico crew has done with editing. We will have a finished version sometime in January. We will most likely submit to a handful of festivals and then it will be available via iTunes, Amazon Prime, etc later in 2019.
WIDOW’S POINT (feature film) — deep in post production. The footage I have seen looks terrific. I have a full rough cut and plan to sit down and watch next week. Director Gregory Lamberson is on schedule and we should have a final cut in the next couple months. More details to follow. Also news coming soon on a movie tie-in paperback edition.
THE GIRL ON THE PORCH — due in August from Subterranean Press, this thriller will sport one of my all-time favorite covers and some very kind blurbs from writers I adore. A handful of advance proofs (pictured below) were sent out to film folks. Sub Press ARCs should be available shortly. I believe they plan to officially announce the book next month.
