FLESH AND FIRE, Up for Preorder on Amazon Kindle

DARK OF NIGHT – FLESH AND FIRE (Journalstone’s Double Down Series, Book VIII) is now available for preorder on Amazon Kindle.


The dead rose. We fell.

The survivors are trapped in a world of monsters who prey on the helpless. Some of them are zombies…but they are not the only predators who feed on pain and suffering.

DARK OF NIGHT is a story of worlds in collision. Three heroes who have survived the apocalypse are in a deadly race to save a busload of children from ravenous zombies and ruthless human scavengers.

This brand new novella brings together three of New York Times bestseller Jonathan Maberry’s award-winning novel series.

Captain Joe Ledger (PATIENT ZERO and CODE ZERO), Officer Desdemona Fox (DEAD OF NIGHT and FALL OF NIGHT), and Rachael Elle (BITS & PIECES, a Rot & Ruin novel) are caught between an endless wave of the living dead and an army of corrupt men who want to enslave the last human survivors.

Jonathan Maberry teams with debut novelist Rachael Lavin to tell a sweeping story of adventure, horror, and heroism.


In the midst of a midlife crisis, Todd is haunted by Chloe, the lover who died not long after their relationship ended. When Chloe escapes Hell in search of the peaceful rest that has eluded her, a demon named Samael is on her trail and she needs Todd’s help.

While on the run Todd and Chloe face demons real and personal, soul-threatening danger, and their long-buried feelings for each other.


You can preorder the Kindle here.

Trade paperback should be available soon.

What I’ve been up to…

There has been much afoot in my world over the last month. Jean and I were married on August 14th and went on an epic honeymoon that took us on a road trip to Nashville, TN, Tyler, San Antonio, Austin (Texas), New Orleans, and Myrtle Beach. It was a great trip, and it was nice to have a new place to move into upon our return. I don’t have internet in the new place yet, which is why you haven’t seen a whole lot of me lately, but on the flip side, I have gotten a lot of work done…

FLESH & FIRE, my novella, is damn near ready for submission. It follows the story of Todd, a successful, middle-aged family man who feels ultimately unfulfilled. One day on the way to work, he runs into his ex, who’s been dead for thirty years and is on the run from Hell.

My short story GOBLINS is also close to being completely edited. This will be published on Smashwords next month and will come with a soundtrack (composed by me, with some assistance from James Anderson who also did the cover art). The story concerns Connor and Christine, a brother and sister, who travel to a remote Southern town in search of Christine’s wayward husband. They find that he has become the high priest of a cult of Goblins. Expect it around Halloween.

In other news, tomorrow I will get a sneak preview of the STRAW DOGS remake and will review it for the excellent Cinedelphia website. I’ve been rocking hard to Christopher Sean Inlow’s (aka Slo Frank, aka Muzzy in DEER CROSSING) excellent band Above the Silence, reading my review copy of Jonathan Maberry’s DEAD OF NIGHT and getting ready for LUCAS MANGUM’S AWESOME READING FEST 3D this Saturday at the Doylestown Bookshop.

So, all in all I’ve been busy, but damned if I’m not having fun…
