Since GLOOM: SIC SEMPER TYRANNIS has just been released, I thought I'd share information on what my next book will be. I started working on this book last year and felt it just wasn't 'clicking' yet. I loved the characters and story but felt like there was some things missing. I put it off so I could wrap up the latest GLOOM book. Now that it's out, I feel comfortable about discussing what my next book will be.
VINE IN THE FIRE will be my return to the horror genre. A western setting with horror elements... what more could you want? Well, I've always loved the old west and have been fascinated with mixing that genre with horror elements. So, I've been reworking my original idea into something I feel not only the story needed, but also the characters.
The picture above has nothing to do with VINE IN THE FIRE, but I like it. It's a classic "Old West" image that sets the mood for what I'm about to do. Well, partially anyway. I look forward to the writing journey this novel is about to bring. It's time to saddle up and head west into the horizon.
