I don’t have many photos from the night. I’m very happy to have this one with artist Emily Mintz. Emily did the cover art and the three interior illustrations for the book. I purchased three wonderful prints she made of the interior illustrations.

I posted the images of the promotional materials for the event. And of Yeti Tiger Dragon… kitty.

If you have any other photos from the night please send them to me or post / share them on Facebook or Twitter. The night was very busy and the month after was very busy so these are the only images I have.

October 10, 2016.

Yeti Tiger Dragon, limited to a signed and numbered edition of 150 sells out in five days.

Thanks to a robust Dim Shores pre-sale and the launch party at Morbid Anatomy most of the copies were gone for New York Comic Con on October 6th. The last of the copies were sold at Comic Con.

Thank you to everyone who bought the book.

Thanks to the Dim Shores loyalists. I appreciate you giving my brand of strange fiction a try.

Thank you so much to everyone who came to the launch at Morbid Anatomy. A special shout out to all the staff who were and are always so excellent, to Jason Sileo, and for everyone who came and bought a book. I had no idea turn out was going to be like that. The place was packed. We had a great time. Celebratory pizza (with hot-honey) was had after!

Found this over at the EV blog. What a great cover. Although the issue has been delayed the blog reports that it is going to the printer shortly and thus the issue will be coming soon ! Also very pleased to be sharing a Table of Contents with Australian author Lyn Battersby.

Tetsuya and the Ranagareet at Strange, Weird, and Wonderful

My short story Tetsuya and the Ranagareet is now live at a free e-zine called Strange, Weird, and Wonderful.

The short story is a dark, young adult tale I wrote quite some time ago.

I’ll post a synopsis and excerpt soon.

I noticed a typo in the TOC of the zine… so for now he is Tetsula and the Ranagareet…

I like the artwork for the story. I’m trying to figure out how to post it here.
