This is the official book cover for the deluxe horror edition of Journey Into the Unknown. All the stories are finished. Once all the edits are finished for the new stories, the book will go to press. I had fun writing all the new stories for the reissue. For those that haven't purchased the original version, you will definitely be glad that you didn't. Smashwords will distribute their version with an alternate book cover. That version which is a lot more sexier is at the bottom of this blog.
Zombie Hunter, which everybody that follows my blog, was finally finished this week and I'm hiring a professional artist from Romania to do a illustration based on the two main characters in the story; Devlin The Zombie Hunter and Militia. The illustration is going to be a little pricey, but from what I've seen of his portfolio, it will be worth the price. I'm going to use it for promoting the release of Journey Into the Unknown.
My latest short story "The White Wolf" is available to read for free on shortfictionbreak: http://shortfictionbreak.com/2014/09/16/the-white-wolf The story will also be available in the deluxe horror edition of Journey. For those who have purchased my other two novels, there will be no reissues. The versions that are out are the versions that will be in print until the end of time.

Halloween is approaching and it means that it is the perfect time to read horror fiction. Even though I want people to read my work, support all of us horror authors during the Halloween season. Better yet, support the horror authors twelve months out of the year.
As always keep checking back each week for my latest updates.
Until next time
