ANNOUNCEMENT: Release date of LESSONS III: Demonic Dolls and Other Morbid Drabbles

I know a bunch of you have been wondering just when in the hell LESSONS III will ever come out.  Well, I'm happy to say that I have finally figured out a date.  LESSONS III will be released on August 2nd.

Why August 2nd?

A few reasons.  That should give me more than enough time to put this all together.  The drabbles are finished, although I'm still going through the tweaking/editing process.

The main reason was that it was the release dates of one of my favorite horror movies as a kid, FRIGHT NIGHT.  I think it was the second horror movie I ever saw.  Not only that, but it's directed by Tom Holland, the same guy who did the first CHILD'S PLAY.  (See the tie-in now?  I originally wanted to do it on the day that CHILD'S PLAY was released, but that was in November--so nuts to that.)

Anyway, I thought it'd make it special if I set an actual release date rather than just putting it out there when it's finished.  I'm pretty proud of this project, and I'm happy to say that it's going to feature a few of my author friends as well--more on that later.

I'm psyched about this new collection, and I hope you'll enjoy the hell out of it when it's out.

LESSONS III update and other hi-jinks

A few quick updates:

1)  LESSONS I is getting a much-needed makeover.  That's right, a brand new cover is on the way.  T.M. Roy (the artist who did the excellent cover for LESSONS II) is working on it and showed me a rough comp.  All I can say is it looks awesome.  I can't wait for the finished product.  Should have that within the next week or so, if not sooner.

2)  Finally had a breakthrough on LESSONS III.  I've been in a rut trying to find a new angle/theme to go with, and I figured it out a few days ago.  Now, it seems like it's really starting to take off.  It still needs work, but I am much closer than I was about a month ago .  I also have a title for the new book:  LESSONS III: Demonic Dolls and Other Morbid Drabbles.  I'm really psyched and I hope everybody will like it when it's finished.

3)  I have now sold over 2,000 books and LESSONS I just sold its 1,000th copy about a week ago, all thanks to you guys!  I can never thank you enough.  I really, really appreciate it and am loving all of the wonderful comments from you all.  Your love and support has been overwhelming--but in a good way!  So thank you, thank you, thank you!

That about does it.  Sorry again for not updating this blog a bunch.  For more updates and constant inane babble, please check me out on Twitter:
