Unnatural Disasters Wraparound


Happy Halloween! What a perfect day to announce the availability of my new anthology, Unnatural Disasters.

Floods. Earthquakes. Tornados. Asteroids. Nature can be vicious. But when you combine natural disasters with the very unnatural imaginations of the authors in this collection, you get terrors worse than anything Mother Nature has ever thrown at us, forays into nightmarish worlds that make a hurricane look like a light summer breeze.

Join Scott Nicholson, William Meikle, Daniel Pyle, Robert J. Duperre, Danielle Bourdon, Keith Gouveia, Ruth Francisco, J.A. Titus, and Robin Morris for nine horrific tales that will leave you cringing, gasping, and so scared of the outdoors you’ll never want to leave your house again.

Pick up your copy today on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.


Dark Tomorrows, Second Edition contains my short story, “New and Improved,” and the ebook version is available now for only 99¢. The other authors in this anthology are some of my favorite new writers; I really think this is one you’ll want to grab. Pick it up now from Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
