My noir novella Father & Daughter is now available in e-book format. It's about drugs, crime, murder, all that good stuff. Oh, and a daughter's relationship with her father. It's damn dark but I think it's good. It was originally published under the title Stamped with Blood and under the pseudonym Lou McBride. Now, it's under my name with a better title I think. Anyway...
From the book:
From the novella:
"It started like any other night. I was high and drinking PBR. Dad was high and plotting hate and discontent.
We sat in his garage. I sandblasted engine parts while keeping an eye on the Monday night game out of the corner of my eye. Chargers-Raiders. I was a Raiders fan. Because Dad was a Raiders fan.
Dad fumed. Dad popped reds and gnawed on chicken wings. Dad spouted about Petey Clemons owing him twenty large.
This was my life. Drugs, whores, and Dad. This was me being a supporting daughter. At least complicit. Even enabling.
Sooner or later that had to change. And sooner was coming faster and faster and I had choices to make. Him or me."

Faceless, the novel-sized sequel to my novella Blood Spring, is now available in e-book format. A print edition is planned for a later release. The write-up:
Over a year has passed since the events in Blackwater Forest. Events that exposed the darkness hiding in Cainswell and Edom County as a whole. Sheriff Nate Lewis hoped the tragedy was behind him. Chalk it up to a bunch of crazy killers living in the woods and move on.
But things happen for a reason, and soon Nate finds himself dealing once again with the Faceless God. Only this time, it's not a statue or lunatic worshipers. It might be the read deal itself, hiding in the body of a college kid. A body it may be slowly taking over. But Nate has no proof. Only his gut instincts.
How long can he wait to pull the trigger? And what can he fight a demon with if bullets won't kill it?
