April News

A little bit of news! A few days ago I appeared at AuthorCon, a new branch of Scares That Care, where I had the fortune of being a guest of honor alongside authors like Mary SanGiovanni, S.A. Cosby, Wrath James White, Josh Malerman, Grady Hendrix, C.V. Hunt, and more! It was my first public signing, first in-person reading, first in-personal, and it was all wonderful! Everyone was kind and patient, and it was just a lovely time all around. I  also had a very cool sign designed by Cassie of Let’s Get Galactic:

In sadder news, due to production circumstances, “Unkindly Girls” will no longer be adapted as part of the film version of Worst Laid Plans. I wish everyone working on the movie the best. Film rights have been returned to me, so maybe “Unkindly Girls” will see the screen someday down a different avenue.

Lastly, I’ve signed with Death’s Head Press to publish three upcoming chapbooks! More details to come when available, but prepare for an ill-fated trio of queer horror and weird crime. On the Splatter Western, Death’s Head Press is all set to publish my third novel Cruel Angels Past Sundown in early 2023.

Lots of good thing to come!

“Unkindly Girls,” LOHF Awards 2020

So honored to learn that “Unkindly Girls,” my story from last year’s Worst Laid Plans anthology, has won the Ladies of Horror Fiction Award 2020 for Best Short Story. All the nominees are amazing, and I’m truly grateful for this. I owe thanks not only to LOHF, but Grindhouse Press for publishing, Sadie Hartmann for her grand introduction, and most of all the brilliant Samantha Kolesnik, not only the anthology’s editor, but producer behind the Worst Laid Plans motion picture coming from GenreBlast Films, of which “Unkindly Girls” will be a segment.

Worst Laid Plans: Fully Funded

It feels like only a couple days ago that I announced the crowdfunding for an upcoming GenreBlast film based on the anthology Worst Laid Plans, edited by Samantha Kolesnik of Off Limits Press. Now I get to announce: IT’S FULLY FUNDED! This movie is happening! I’m so excited to see my tale “Unkindly Girls” and the other stories come to silver screen life in the future.

In the meantime, the anthology has been nominated for a Splatterpunk Award and a Bram Stoker Award, so huge congratulations to Sam on those!

Worst Laid Plans: The Movie; Book announcement

Two fantastic announcements!

First, last year’s hit Grindhouse Press anthology Worst Laid Plans is getting a film adaptation, and one of the stories included will be my coming-of-age horror tale “Unkindly Girls.”

Second, I’ll be joining the roster at Death’s Head Press in their splatter western series in 2022. Look for more news such as title, cover art, and release date to come!
