Today marks the release of my debut novella, The Girl in the Video. Ever since I was a kid I’ve dreamed of having my own book out and now it’s finally happened. And what a looker it is, too, thanks to the wonderful cover art from Pye Parr.
I’m so happy that it’s received so much support so quickly—seriously check out links to The Girl in the Video media coverage here. By all means, please keep checking back as I update the links.
My one ask: if you’ve read The Girl in the Video could you please leave a review on Amazon?
I know a number of you have already left a review on Goodreads which is awesome, but I’d love for the book’s Amazon presence to be boosted with a number of reviews.
Now onto the LIVE THIS IS HORROR PODCAST party …
This is going down later today or tomorrow depending on your time zone. Conversation, readings, book giveaways, and an interactive chatroom with This Is Horror Podcast hosts, Michael David Wilson and Bob Pastorella. But it would be neither much of a party nor a launch without the help of some very special guests. Joining This Is Horror hosts will be our dear friends and super-talented writers and podcasters, Lisa Quigley and Mackenzie Kiera of The Ladies of the Fright.
28 April 2020. 5–7 pm (Pacific). 7–9 pm (Central). 8–10 pm (Eastern).
29 April 2020. 1–3 am (UK). 9–11 am (Japan).
Head over to https://mixlr.com/thisishorror/ for the full experience including the live chatroom. You can sign up for mixlr or you can login via Facebook. We recommend logging in ahead of time so you don’t miss any of the show.
You should also be able to listen to it above but we recommend the link with the chatroom.
