Last Night Out — Now Available!

Last Night Out Cover copy
Cover by Thom Erb

The Special 5 Year Anniversary Edition of Last Night Out is now available for purchase in Trade Paperback and eBook. This edition includes an Introduction by Gene O’Neill and Afterword by yours truly, telling the origins of the book, and how this special edition came to be.

Synopsis:

Gabe, Alan and Erin thought one last night out on the town before their junior year of college came to an end would be fitting. The three friends did the same as always – they went to a bar. Only this time they decided to try someplace new: The Torchlight Inn. They are eager to make it a night to remember.

During their time at the shabby bar they come face to face with seedy bar patrons, a biker gang and one strange-acting bartender named T-Bone. But all is well until Alan and Erin mysteriously disappear and Gabe has to try and find his friends before being forced to pay their bar tab.

Little do any of them know the secret the place holds beneath its cracked floorboards…

Where a whole new kind of terror is waiting for them.

You can order your own copy in Trade Paperback and/or Kindle on Amazon.

Cheers!

Updates & Upcoming

Below is a rundown of what’s taken place as of late and what to look out for during the remainder of 2015 and into 2016.

2015

  • My atypical werewolf novella Grave Intentions went out of print a few months ago.
  • Three books went out of print in May: The Killing Club, Last Night Out and Deep Dark Woods.
  • The audio book edition of DININ’ should be released mid to late June.
  • June/July will see the release of my short story collection, Escaping Lucidity. This will be released in Trade Paperback and eBook editions by Ravenswood Publishing and contain a special introduction by John R. Little.
  • Later this year will see the re-release of my critically acclaimed atypical zombie novella, The Fields. It will still contain the Introduction by Jonathan Maberry that was in the original edition by Apex Publications in 2011. The new edition will be released in Trade Hardcover, then soon after in Trade Paperback and eBook editions by SST Publications and contain a new Foreword by Joe McKinney and an Afterword by me telling the history behind the book. This new edition will also have a new wraparound cover and new interior illustrations. This one is going to be a beauty!
  • Late this year will see the release of the audio book edition of Escaping Lucidity by Cup O’ Tea Productions.
  • (Last week I also received word from a publisher who will be picking up and re-releasing The Killing Club, however I can’t tell you more, as I have yet to receive, sign and return the contract.)

  • An anthology titled, Cadence in Decay, will be released in Trade Paperback and eBook editions by Ravenswood Publishing. I will be the Editor on this project. Be on the lookout soon for the cover art, as well as the list of contributors. I guarantee you’re going to love this one. Release Date, TBA.
  • (I’m also working on one or two other potential projects for 2016, possibly 2017. More on those when/if things develop as I believe they should.)

That’s all the news I have for now. The remainder of 2015 and 2016 should bring some exciting re-releases and new books.

March Plug #4 — Loren Rhoads

AsAbove pc

As Above, So Below by Loren Rhoads & Brian Thomas

Synopsis
 
When the succubus Lorelei sees the angel Azaziel from across the bar, she knows he’s been cast out of Heaven, but is not yet Fallen. She resolves to do whatever it takes to bring the angel down. When she trails him back to his lair in the warehouses outside of downtown Los Angeles, they seduce each other. Later, on the streets of L.A., they encounter Ashleigh Johnson, one of Azaziel’s mortal charges, dying of hepatitis in the street. The angel rescues Ashleigh’s soul from two harpies poised to devour it and uses it to possess Lorelei. Other angels don’t foresee any positive outcome to any of this. In their eyes, their brother has endangered a mortal soul and compromised his own standing in Heaven. When they intrude, Lorelei flees — taking Ashleigh Johnson along for the ride. In the process, Lorelei discovers that she has developed a soul of her own, a soul which is most certainly damned. Before long, her sister Floria tracks down a defrocked priest willing to exorcise Ashleigh’s mortal soul from Lorelei’s infernal flesh. The intimate little ritual swells into a virtual Who’s Who of Hell’s presence in L.A.

Loren Rhoads is the co-author, with Brian Thomas, of the new novel As Above, So Below.  The succubus Lorelei’s adventures have previously appeared in Sins of the Sirens (Dark Arts Books, 2008) and Demon Lovers (Ravenous, 2012).

March Plug #3 — David Owain Hughes

Walled

Walled In by David Owain Hughes

Synopsis

A weapon, designed ‘in the dark’ at an army barracks just outside of Cardiff, South Wales, has been unleashed. Intended for use against enemy troops, the chemical, comprising Bird Flu, Bovine Flu and Foot and Mouth, turns those affected into murderous lunatics for twenty-four hours before the body finally shuts down. Jeff, a mild-mannered air enthusiast, has just murdered his sick wife. He had planned for them to stay inside, to lock the place down, to wait it out. But Katherine became sick – the latest casualty of an unknown virus wiping the British population out in their thousands. TV, radio and all other means of contact to the outside world have gone. Jeff, alone, decides to make a break for the plane he has stationed at Cardiff airport. Between Jeff and freedom stands millions of infected. If only he can reach the hangar, then he’ll be safe. He’ll be able to fly to Scotland to reunite with his sister. Along the way, Jeff hooks up with Maria, who has been left stranded at the petrol station where she worked. They meet up with Ollie and Roxie – a pair of biker lovers who have survived the outbreak on the road. Together, their chances of survival are increased, as long as they can all just get along. It’s not just the infected they will have to dodge; a dark and depraved enemy is on their trail. A foe who might just hold the key to surviving in a country gone to hell.
