Fangoria, TPONG, and Hideous Horrors

A couple of quick things to share!

Excited to see Fangoria reporting on A Light Most Hateful movie rights being picked up! So excited! The book releases in 2023, and I’ll keep things up to date with both novel and movie news to come.

As some might have noticed, my first novella The Possession of Natalie Glasgow is now out of print. It’s been picked up by a publisher who can hopefully be named later this year or early next year. Expect to see a new edition in 2024. In the meantime, it’s only available via the audiobook narrated by Gemma Amor + stray paperbacks in bookstores.

My The Hideous Book of Hidden Horrors story “When I Catch You” appeared in this star-studded list, “15 Of the Scariest Short Stories to Read This Halloween (And Where to Find Them)” on Paste. Check it out, and the other stories on the list!

Film News – A Light Most Hateful

I’m so pleased to share that my upcoming 2023 novel from Titan Books, A Light Most Hateful, has been picked up by producer Tony Eldridge and Lonetree Entertainment for film adaptation!

From the Deadline article:

“A Light Most Hateful is billed as a terrifying survival horror full of haunting friendships in which the female experience turns monstrous. The story focuses on Olivia, who having fled home three years prior is stuck in a dead-end job in nowhere Chapel Hill, PA with her best friend Sunflower. That’s until a night storm crashes into town with a mind-bending monster in tow. If Olivia’s going to survive the night to someday reconcile with her parents, she needs to dodge residents enslaved by the storm’s otherworldly powers and find Sunflower. But as the night strains friendships and reality itself, Olivia suspects the storm, and its monster, may have more to do with Sunflower than anything else.”

A Light Most Hateful releases from Titan Books late next year. I’ll keep things up to date on both book and movie news as allowed, but in both cases, it’s an exciting time!

On the publishing side, I have a new story out, “The Deep End of You,” which is about the most unique soul in the world–yours!–and how it can be captured, in art and in other ways. Check it out in Stories of the Eye from Weirdpunk Books!

 

Book announcement: A Light Most Hateful

I’m been on the verge of bursting to share this news, and now it’s finally out! I’m beyond thrilled to share that Titan Books will be publishing a new novel by me in 2023, A Light Most Hateful. It’s a tale of catastrophe striking a small town, testing the bonds of friendship, and straining at reality itself.

We have No Gods for Drowning releasing from Polis Books in about a month, and the next year is quite busy with Cruel Angels Past Sundown releasing in the first quarter, followed later by Even the Worm Will Turn (sequel to The Worm and His Kings) and now A Light Most Hateful. It’s going to be an exciting time, so keep an eye out for further updates!
