Today is the official release of the Italian language edition of my novella ONE FOR THE ROAD! This marks the first time my work has been published in another language, and I’m beyond excited to be branching out to different readerships around the world. Thank you to Dunwich Edizioni for making this happen. Hopefully this will be the first of many!
Grazie ai miei nuovi lettori italiani! Goditi la follia!
The book can be purchased here (L’e-book può essere acquistato qui.)
The good news from Silver Shamrock Publishing keeps rolling in! Somer Canon and I get to reveal the official cover for our collaborative novella SLAVES TO GRAVITY! This cover designed was created by Kealan Patrick Burke and Elderlemon Design. Somer and I couldn’t be happier with the finished product. See you on July 7th!
As it was announced earlier today on social media, my short story “My Body” was accepted to be in the upcoming epic demonology anthology MIDNIGHT IN THE PENTAGRAM from Silver Shamrock Publishing. This book is building up quite the all-star roster, which they are still adding to:
Michael Patrick Hicks
Coming late summer 2020…
On a side note: I am already thrilled to be in this book, getting to share the TOC with many of my friends and peers, but to be in the same pages as my literary hero Graham Masterton is an absolute dream come true. I can’t even stand how excited I am for this!
A few months ago, before the world went all splody, my wife, Katie, started a new podcast. Since she’s around so many amazing horror authors on a fairly regular basis, she saw an opportunity as a new reader to the genre to bring a fresh concept to the podcast game. MAKE ME READ YOUR BOOK is a podcast for new readers, where every week Katie interviews a great mix of established names and up-and-comers in the horror world, reads a book of theirs based on their suggestion, and then discusses the book and how she felt about it.
So far she’s interviewed Jonathan Janz, Somer Canon, Ronald Malfi, Paul Tremblay, Brian Keene, Mary Hart, Jeff Strand, Jacob Haddon, Mary SanGiovanni, James A. Moore, Asher Ellis, Bracken MacLeod, Kristopher Triana, Samantha Kolesnik, Wile E. Young, and Chandler Morrison. Over the next three weeks she has C.V. Hunt, Simon Clark, and Tim Lebbon.
MAKE ME READ YOUR BOOK is available across all podcast platforms, including Google Play, iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher, and Podbean. Subscribe, leave a review, and make sure to follow her on Facebook (Make Me Read Your Book Podcast), Twitter (@makemereadpod), and Instagram (makemereadpod) and let her know what you think.
MIDNIGHT RITUALS is an anthology featuring myself, Brian Keene, Mary SanGiovanni, Robert Swartwood, John Boden, Kelli Owen, Stephen Kozeniewski, and Robert Ford.
It was originally published as an extremely limited edition print chapbook. We are now offering it as a free e-book to help distract everyone from the real-world horrors taking place right now.
April 31 will be the last day you can download it. After that, it will no longer be available.
CLICK HERE to download it as either an e-pub or mobi file (acceptable for all e-readers).
Author Stephanie Evelyn Briggs (The Cult Called Freedom House: Sophia Rey Book 1) has been conducting interviews with various authors over the last few weeks. I was lucky enough to be one of those few. You can read it here.
Since nearly all of the conventions are being cancelled left and right, authors like myself are left with dozens of unsold books at home. Let’s do something about that! Right now I am offering all of my current titles, which I can sign and ship directly to you (with maybe a goody or two thrown in, as well). Here’s what I have on hand:
RESISTING MADNESS ($15) — 5 left
ONE FOR THE ROAD ($12) — Plenty of copies left
CLOSING COSTS ($7) — 6 left
THE BETRAYED ($17) — Currently out of stock, more have been ordered
All of these prices have shipping included, but the shipping price will be adjusted depending on the number of books bought. Unfortunately I can only ship to US addresses at this time, as I was told recently they were not shipping outside of the country right now. Hopefully that will change soon.
If any of these books are what you’re looking for, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get you hooked up.
Stay safe and happy reading!
