Beginning in January with the release of my novella, Abram’s Bridge, following that up with April’s horror/sci-fi novella, Boom Town, and concluding with my first full novel, Blood and Rain, 2015 was a great year for my writing on a professional level.
It was an amazing feeling each time out and I have a lot of people to thank for it all:
My wife, Meghan, and our babies (Ruby, Ramona, and Axl). They give me the space I need when I need to finish up an important piece or meet editing deadlines. They also howl with me and celebrate each acceptance and cover art reveal. They rule!
Also to Erin (my friend, publicist, and pre-editor), her husband, Tim, and Oh for the Hook of a Book! Erin, you are my BASF (and eighties and early nineties reference) you make what I do better. You bust your hump setting up tours, keeping dates straight, giving me ideas about what the hell to write a post about next, and so much more. Thank you. And I will send anyone who needs help your way.
To Don D’Auria for believing in these stories and taking a chance on me. Can’t wait to work with you again wherever that may be.
To the Samhain team (Tanya, Kaitlyn, Jacob, Lauren, Matthew, Christina, and everyone in-house that I don’t get to chat with regularly). You guys work hard and answer the call whenever I reach out (even at the last minute).
To all my fellow Samhain authors for their support, friendship, and advice, to all my readers and reviewers who made time for my work, and to anyone who shared a post, a tweet, or mentioned me to a friend….thank you, thank you, thank you!
I also want to say a special thanks to Ronald Malfi, Nate Kenyon, Adam Cesare, Gord Rollo, Catherine Cavendish, David Bernstein, Russell James, Tim Waggoner, and Hunter Shea for taking time out of their crazy writing schedules to read and blurb my work. Some of you have read each piece, some only Blood and Rain, I thank you for each and every minute, hour, and word.
May 2016 be a great year for you all.
