Free Book!

In an effort to do something to make things better, I’ve decided to give away my Southern Gothic novel, HIGH LONESOME SOUND, for free. If you follow the link you can select with format you’d prefer and it’ll be sent right to you. You can opt into my newsletter as well, but that’s totally optional. This is a no-strings-attached gift from me to you. The link is good until the end of April.

Get you

“I walked to the door where Clovis waited. When I looked up, he was staring at Adam. A quick glance backward confirmed Adam was returning his stare. Freaking males, I thought, they couldn’t be more obvious about their territorial dispute if they’d both peed on me.”

“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.”
Edgar Allan Poe, Eleonora

“Recognizing power in another does not diminish your own.”
Joss Whedon

“If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”
Stephen King

“People love a happy ending. So every episode, I will explain once again that I don't like people. And then Mal will shoot someone. Someone we like. And their puppy.”
Joss Whedon

“Running a close second [as a writing lesson] was the realization that stopping a piece of work just because it's hard, either emotionally or imaginatively, is a bad idea. Sometimes you have to go on when you don't feel like it, and sometimes you're doing good work when it feels like all you're managing is to shovel shit from a sitting position.”
Stephen King
