I was interviewed by Unnerving!

In preparation for the release of “The Grimhaven Disaster” (Aug 8th, preorder here), Eddie Generous of the publisher, Unnerving, interviewed me about the research I did for Grimhaven, my writing goals, Losing the Plot and other stuff. It was a lot of fun and I hope you enjoy listening to it! Cheers 🙂

Pre-order The Grimhaven Disaster NOW!!

Hi guys!

So “The Grimhaven Disaster”, my surreal radioactive horror novella, is now available for preorder! Click here and do so now please 🙂

Themis and his buddies celebrate the end of high school by taking a trip to, of all places, Grimhaven’s abandoned nuclear plant, where Themis’ insane grandfather, who religiously devoted himself to nuclear energy, worked up until the hideous accident that put the plant out of commission. When Themis and his girlfriend explore the plant at night, they discover that the plant isn’t as dormant as it seems, and the background radiation of Themis’ family history threatens to result in a full-blown sickness. The Grimhaven Disaster is a horrific, surreal and positively radioactive vision of what happens when youthful hubris clashes with the sobering decay of adulthood.

New Episode of Losing the Plot, with Danger Slater!

This episode’s guest is Danger Slater, author of four books, most recently Puppet Skin, one of the best books I read last year! He has a new book out this year with a tentative release date of November (to coincide with BizarroCon.)

We talk about what it means to be successful, the process of self-reinvention, and fear of flying! (I brought the last one up, naturally.)
