Darkness breaks the Cloudy Veil

I am overjoyed to announce that I was recently accepted into Blood Type: An Anthology of Vampire SF on the Cutting Edge. This is an anthology that I submitted to quite a while ago, with a story that I really grew to love. In fact, I could see it becoming a full length novel, and possibly a series some day.

All net proceeds from sales of this anthology will go to The Cystic Fibrosis Trust. The theme of this anthology is the perfect match for such an amazing organization.

Within this collection, I am honored to stand alongside such greats as William F. Nolan, Peter Giglio, Mike Resnik, Taylor Grant, and many more.

The scheduled release date is October 31st, 2013, however I will be sure to communicate any updates as they are available
