Every Shallow Cut nominated for a Spinetingler Award

Just received word that my noirella EVERY SHALLOW CUT, published by Chizine Books, has been nominated for a Spinetingler award for best novella. I’m honored to be included with writers like Ray Banks, Nik Korpon, Fingers Murphy, Gerard Brennan, Nigel Bird, Chuck Wendig and other talented folks. Voting runs from now until the end of the month. Go have your say.

You can visit my Amazon page to pick up any of my Kindle releases. We've extended our sale on three of my titles. My collection FUTILE EFFORTS and my noirellas YOU'D BETTER WATCH OUT and ALL YOU DESPISE are all just $.99 for the time being. For a couple of bucks more you can pick up NIGHTJACK, FUCKIN' LIE DOWN ALREADY, THE FEVER KILL, THRUST, THE NOBODY, THE LAST DEEP BREATH, LOSS, PENTACLE, A LOWER DEEP or any of my Bantam titles including THE COLD SPOT, SHADOW SEASON, and A CHOIR OF ILL CHILDREN.

I also just received proofs of my next novel THE LAST KIND WORDS, due out in hardcover from Bantam on June 5. You can check out the synopsis and blurbs on the Amazon page. You can also pre-order, "like" the book, and tag it, if you're so inclined. Thanks to everyone who's already shown such incredible support for the novel. I already have a feeling this is going to be the best selling book of my career. Grazie, all.

Library Journal ran a nice little preview of TLKW a week ago, along with other titles streeting this summer. Read the brief article here.

Crime Factory #9 packs a hell of a lot of knockout content: pieces by Scott Phillips, Benjamin Whitmer, Daniel B. O'Shea, Ray Banks, Paul D Brazill, and a new short story by me. Features by Johnny Shaw, Cameron Ashley, Jimmy Callaway. Read, enjoy, quiver.

I got EVERY SHALLOW CUT waiting for me in the TBR here. I'm pretty excited about it. The ChiZine gang did a really good job with the paperback edition.

Read it and loved it! Going out to buy all ur work now! Was a little confused at the end...did he kill hinself? Maybe/maybe not..but Churchill was still alive?..but he was "still barkig happily". I bought this booked down town toronto wih my gf, and the first page i turned to was "i hadnt stopped killing..." i was like "Angela i am Buying his book" thibking it was a 'Dexter' like character, but happy it was not about that at all! Thank u for ur work! Keep writting!
