It’s been awhile, I know… But, hey, I have some news!
First of all… AUDIOBOOKS!
I’ve gotten many requests over the years and it’s taken awhile, but they’re finally here (with more to come soon)!
Unknown Pleasures read by Michael Robbins
Black – Canto I of The Nephilim Codex read by MacKenzie Nikol Greenwood
Pressure Point (Book 2 of the Randall Lee Mysteries) read by Todd Curless
I hope you check them out because they’ve really turned out great. The narrators did a fantastic job.
I’m extremely proud to be included in the charity anthology, Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep, edited by P.D. Cacek and Laura J. Hickman. 100% of all proceeds will be donated to The Jimmy Fund, so you can check out a bunch of awesome horror stories AND help kids with cancer. Fun fact: This anthology contains not one, but TWO Colyotts… because it also features my wife’s first published story! Check out the awesome trailer here!
And here’s the line-up:

I hope you’ll pick it up because it’s a great book and a great cause.
Coming hopefully in October, Zippered Flesh 3, edited by Weldon Burge. If you’ve followed me for awhile you may remember that I’ve had a story in each of these anthologies, and I’m really, really happy with the story in this one. My other Z.F. stories have been pretty yucky body horror-type stuff, but this one is much more…psychological? It’s also either really sweet or pretty awful, depending on how you read it. 🙂
I’m slightly behind my initial schedule, but I’m still hoping to *finish* both Canto II of the Nephilim Codex AND The Art of War (the next Randall book) before the end of summer… but the release for both is most likely going to be in the fall. Canto II, especially is going to be quite a chore to edit because it’s been written over a period of about ten years… so I know the continuity is going to be a nightmare.
I will be sharing updates as I have them!
