Deep Cuts



In the newly revamped CHIZINE you'll find new original fiction by me as well as a lengthy (& enlightening & totally hilarious, natch) interview called Deep Cuts. You'll also find fiction and poetry by the likes of Neil Gaiman, Ed Lynskey, Bruce Boston, Marge Simon, Patricia Lee Macomber, Ursula Pflug, and Rain Graves. Also, over on Allan Guthrie's new CRIMINAL-E website, there's another (very brief) interview with me focusing on digital crime novel releases and my original digital novel NIGHTJACK. Some recent anthos my work appears in include PORTENTS, edited by Al Sarrantonio, a gathering of quiet-horror stories in the Charles L. Grant tradition, featuring Gene Wolfe, Joyce Carol Oates, Ramsey Campbell, Joe R. Lansdale, Tia V. Travis, Steve Rasnic Tem, Elizabeth Massie, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, and Brian Keene; and CRUCIFIED DREAMS, edited by Joe Lansdale, an antho of reprints fearing the likes of Stephen King, Harlan Ellison, Joe Haldeman, David Morrell, and Norman Partridge. Both are well worth their pricetags and I'm proud to be a part of both finished projects. Still doing critiques, folks. $50 for a 4k words and under short story, 2-3 page long critique. I charge $50 an hour for full-length manuscripts, minimum of 6 hours, max of 20, send the ms. on for an estimate. If interested, just drop me a message here, on Facebook, or at PicSelf1@aol.com. Also wanted to say thanks to everyone for making EVERY SHALLOW CUT one of my fastest moving, well-touted small press works. You guys are the best.
