It’s a delicate balance, this writing thing.
Writing is, pretty generally, an intimate thing; a solitary act of creation the artist agonizes over for days, weeks, months, or even longer. All to create something (hopefully) amazing, which they must then reveal to the world. This is where it gets interesting. The writer emerges from their den, blinking at the sudden brightness, and approaches the world holding their new creation aloft.
All of this to say it’s been a busy couple of weeks, and a lot of you have probably noticed my increased social media presence. One of the ways I do that is by posting more frequent updates here, a process that makes me slightly uncomfortable. “People have already heard all of this before,” I say. “How many times do they want to hear about this stuff before they just tune out?” Keep it fresh by talking about new stuff, I answer myself. Fair enough.
So with Terror in High Water‘s release just over a week away I’ve been doing my best to get the word out. Pre-orders can be made through Amazon, but just today I also discovered that it’s available on Smashwords and, to my surprise, FNAC.
What the heck is FNAC? you may ask. Fair question. I asked that very thing myself earlier. Turns out, FNAC stands for Federation Nationale d’Achats des Cadres, and is a retail chain, a sort of Amazon-like thing founded and based in France. So having learned that I thought to myself, well, that’s pretty damn cool. And it is.
So that’s just a quick update on some cool new stuff in the days leading up to the official release. As always, thanks for reading and following along. If you want these updates sent right to your inbox, enter your email address and click the “follow” button.

The countdown continues…
Two weeks until release day.
My novel, Terror in High Water, is available September 23rd.
From the back cover:
“The Man is comin’, Sheriff…bringin’ the hounds of Hell with him…”
On a hot morning In 1830s Texas, a cattle rancher limps into the tiny, isolated town of High Water. He’s battered, bloody, and near death but insists on speaking to the sheriff. “The Man is coming,” he warns, “and he’s taking over this town.” The townspeople fearfully brace for the newcomer’s arrival.
The Man arrives with his gang of Hell Hounds in tow, brutally kills the sheriff, and declares the town his. Thus begins the reign of terror by the sinister band who, as the people soon discover, are more than meets the eye. The residents of High Water are terrorized, threatened, and forced to pay tribute to their cruel oppressors with violent repercussions for any who dare to resist.
But there is hope.
A story begins to circulate, in hushed whispers, behind closed doors. The legend of a renowned gunslinger and monster hunter who walks the earth, his sole purpose to seek and destroy the minions of hell. The people are held in the grip of terror, fearful of the consequences should they take a stand. But one young man will risk everything to escape The Man’s clutches, to locate the Legend and bring him back to banish the evil from High Water.
Is the legend real? Does the gunslinger still live? Can one man defeat the overwhelming odds and destroy the great evil that grips High Water?
Do legends ever die?
Now available on Amazon for pre-order for Kindle and paperback.
