I’m currently hard at work on what Pro Se Productions will be calling a “Cinematic Pulp” story. Basically, this means that I’m writing a novella that will have a LOT of artwork included with it — not enough to make it a true Graphic Novel but enough to warrant a new category for the work. I believe that artist Pete Cooper (YESTERYEAR) is attached to the project. The story is entitled THE ROOK: THE KILLING GAMES and it’s been a blast to write so far. More details to come.
The sixth volume in the bestselling Rook Chronicles is now in stores!. Featuring a cover by Ed Mironiuk and interior illustrations by Anthony Castrillo. Also, my short story “The Devil’s Workmen” will appear in The Avenger: The Justice Inc. Files from Moonstone Books. This collection of new stories featuring classic pulp hero The Avenger is due out soon. My story “Summer of Death” will appear in The Green Hornet Casefiles.
I’m proud to say that I was voted Pulp Author of the Year in the 2011 Pulp Ark Awards! I was honored, along with the winners in all the other categories, at the Pulp Ark Convention & Conference held in May 2011. I was also a nominee for a Georgia Author of the Year Award — my novel Rabbit Heart was nominated in the Fiction category! I didn’t win the GAYA Award but it was still a tremendous honor to be nominated.
