Hi, Jeff!
Thanks for checking out my work.
As for your question, I am currently writing the sequel to Blood and Rain. It is titled, Waiting For Darkness. I'm hoping to get it ready for Halloween of this year. Stay tuned!
If you haven't checked out my novella, CHASING GHOSTS, give it a shot. The eBook is on sale for just 99 cents.

Thanks again.

I actually live in Maine. I think the woods have a lot to do with our horror minds. There's so much that we can't see just beyond our doors. It just initiates this child-like fear within us. And that always makes for a good scare. Whether you're reading a good, spooky book or watching the Evil Dead.

(Share the Horror Review) THE SOUTHERN BOOK CLUB’S GUIDE TO SLAYING VAMPIRES by Grady Hendrix

Wow, that was awesome! I tried to read this on my Kindle last summer (2020), but I must not have been in the mood for it. I stopped reading about 10% in. Then, I saw the hardcover at the bookstore a couple of months ago and decided to give it another try. I bought that copy and once I started, I didn’t want to put it down.

I loved everything about this book. It had me so wrapped up in frustrati
