New Year’s Day is about beginnings. After a night spent saying goodbye to the past, you rise to greet the future.
But for Melissa Haskins, there is no future. She has woken up alone in a city of the dead. Something vast and terrible moves across the world, and she has no choice but to hide when it passes overhead – she can hear it coming by the strange music that goes before it.
But then one day, she hears a voice coming out of the big empty. A voice that gives her hope. A voice that may just inspire her enough to finally go out and face the music.
Facing the Music is a short story about the world ending when it should be just beginning again, and is now available on Smashwords and Barnes and Noble, and is soon to be available at iTunes Books.

Something strange and terrible is happening to Randolph Stevens’s world. Pieces of it are disappearing, bit by bit. And he’s the only one who notices.
Available at Smashwords, Barnes and Noble and iTunes Books, absolutely free!
Have Killing Time to carry around with you, without needing to scroll through my blog archive. And while you’re there, check out some of my other titles.
So it’s been a bit busy this week, though I’m afraid y’all haven’t really been able to see the fruits of it here.
The good news is that I have a new story up at Smashwords, and this one is free!
That’s right. Carry Looking the Other Way with you, instead of having to scroll through my archives. Get it here. Free.
And if you’d like to support the artist, The Guardian Cats of New York City: Shin-Nephura’s Neighborhood is still just 99 cents, available at Smashwords, or now at Barnes and Noble.
And of course, the really good stuff is right there in the sidebar.
Happy Halloween to all. More on its way later today.
I am proud to announce that, after months of work and anticipation, Hometown has now gone live!
Hometown is available at Amazon (in both print and Kindle versions), Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords.
My thanks go out to everyone who has supported me on this long road. Special thanks go out to Ruben de Vela, who did the fantastic cover art, and to Meaghan Horner, who turned it into a proper cover.
Now comes the part that’s hardest for any self-publisher: promotion. That’s a big part of what publishers are for, after all. With that in mind, I’d like to ask you all for your help: please help me to get the word out. Tweet. Share on Facebook. Reblog. Pass it on. Word of mouth is pretty much all I’ve got.
Thanks to you all.
