    Smile Latest Novel hits the streets

    My latest novel "The Midnight Eye Files: The Amulet" is shipping now, and should be in all the online stores, and available for orderig in bricks and mortar shops, in the next few days

    Lovecraftian entities, jaded PIs, booze, fags and broads in a Scotland you won't recognise from the travel brochures.

    Check out the publishers site at http://www.khpindustries.com/amulet.html for a free excerpt and read a review here: www.hellboundbooks.com/MEreview.htm

    It totally sounds like my kind of book, too.

    It's out now at Amazon in the UK and the US, and
    Horrorweb gave it a truly great review

    Since all the recent posts got deleted, I'll just have to announce again that I will have a poem published in an upcoming issue of Aberrant Dreams. Have no idea when, though.

    I'll say congrats, and way to GO! again. Poetry is tough to sell, good for you.

    I got an offer from Mundania on a flash piece I'd almost forgotten I subbed.

    Well, they're mighty small brags, but since you slackers haven't posted anything in over a month, I'll take a turn.

    The first story I ever wrote, 'The Happy Glad Handler', is available at Anathematic: http://www.anathematic.com/fiction.html

    My dark fiction 'Live at Five' is up at Dark Fire: http://www.horrorseek.com/horror/darkfire/home.html

    And my flash fiction story 'Bonding' is in the November archives at Descending Darkness: http://www.descendingdarkness1.com/IndexPage.html

    I also have a story, 'Instinct', coming out in the Parasitic Sands Anthology, sometime in 2006.

    I just got the check today! $24 for 24 lines. First time I've been paid for my writing since the 1990's.

    Robert N. Lee's and my hell-on-earth antho should be out any second. If you'd like to check it out, click on my link below and then click on the book cover. It's reasonably priced and there are some pretty kick-*** authors in there: Poppy Z. Brite, William F. Nolan, Tom Piccirilli, etc. All original stories.

    Thanks for reading this.

    "Blood Diary" is officially available in the Winter '05 issue of Runes Ezine. FYI, for those who would like to read it.

    Very cool. Congrats! But sad to say that I tried your link and was unable to preview the book. Either it was AOL or my conputer is a little soused at the moment. But congrats just the same.

    Got a big brag here...

    Just had four, count 'em, four books picked up by a traditional publisher!

    Cane River: A Ghost Story -- As the name implies, a ghost story set in a town that was inspired by my home town of Lake Jackson (2006)

    The Mayor's Guide to the Stately Ghosts of Austin -- Real ghosts and hauntings from Austin, Texas (2006)

    City of Demons -- One part cop noir thriller, one part bloody horror goodness! (2007)

    The Mayor's Guide to the Stately Ghosts of Charleston -- Giving the "Mayor's Guide" treatment to Charleston, where there are quite a few restless souls! (2007)


    That brings my total of published works up to seven! Only 6,234,989 to go!

    Just had to share...

    WooHoo, Scott. Brag on.

    The first English story I ever submitted for publication, "The Firstborn", has been accepted by Dark Recesses press and is coming out in the April 1 issue of their ezine. I don't know what to say! It seems I am finally treading the hallowed ground walked over by greats like Lovecraft, Stoker, King et al!

    I came to know of dark recesses through absolutewrite, and gained the confidence to submit anything from my friends out here. Thanks everyone!

    Nandu.
