Hi Alison! Thanks so much for your kind words. It always gives me a boost to hear when someone reads one of my books, and likes it enough to seek out others.

I always seem to have a few projects going on at once these days. I released Unbreakable in J See Full Answer

Faller by Will McIntosh
"I really liked this one. The concept is extraordinary. The main character wakes up on a chunk of New York City that just stops at the edges, as if the rest of the world has just fallen away. He has no memory of who he is or how he got there, and neit" Read more of this review »

“Carpe Diem, just remember that we're partying on the Titanic.”
Will McIntosh, Soft Apocalypse

“The guaranteed cure for heartbreak: find pain that’s much, much worse.”
Will McIntosh, Love Minus Eighty

“It's funny. Friendships are Catch twenty-twos when you're single and in your thirties. Friends are your life rafts. You try to help each other meet people, you confide in each other, you spend Thanksgiving, Valentine's Day, all those emotional land-mine holidays together. But sooner or later one of you is going to meet someone and be gone into the world of couples.”
Will McIntosh, Love Minus Eighty
