I haven't written for Marvel in many years. All of my work for them was for their horror title, CLIVE BARKER'S HELLRAISER,a movie spinoff.
Oh! That sounds too dark for the kidling. What was it like, writing for a comic book publisher?

Oh, yeah. Far too dark for a child. The HELLRAISER comics were written for adults. Like the stories and the movie, it was horror.

It was great writing for a major comic book publisher. The money was wonderful. I came close to selling them a superhero series, but the editor who was pushing my work left Marvel before he could get an offer and a contract to me. So it goes.

Just a few more weeks befor the novel officially hits the stores (August 2).

My editor emailed me today to tell me that Publishers Weekly is going to print a glowing positive review of my book. So they've jacked up the initial print run. I haven't seen the review, yet, but I've been assured it's a really good one. It'll be in the June 19 edition of Publishers Weekly.

Hey, all!

I'm setting up local book signings here in the Charlotte area. I'm also trying to do something of a localized book "tour" by setting up store signings in other NC cities. Just getting that going, though.

You can order The Flock already through any of the larger online booksellers.

In addition, I may have sold my second novel. A publisher in the UK had seen the first five chapters of my novel Hissmelina and asked for the entire manuscript. So that looks encouraging.
