The Devils Glen audiobook is available right now on Amazon/Audible and iTunes. I narrated it myself and let me tell you, that was quite the undertaking. The thing was way more work than I had anticipated, but I learned a lot and found something I enjoy doing in the process. Who knows? I might narrate all my future books–and books for other authors too!
Hopefully, those of you who don’t have the time to read but spend a lot of time commuting or traveling will enjoy getting a chance to listen to it instead. If you’ve never done the audiobook thing, check out Audible on Amazon. Of course, if you’re an iPhone/iPad/Mac person, iTunes might be the way to go for you.
Hey everyone, and happy new year! I hope you all had fantastic holidays and got to spend time with your loved ones. Our family had a great Christmas, and the break was quite relaxing. Rosie loved having all her peeps home with her!
Speaking of Rosie–she’s adjusting to her new life and seems to be fitting in quite well in our home. Her separation anxiety is calming down as she becomes more confident in her surroundings, which is good news for our stuff. She and the cats are struggling to get along, but gradually they’re coming around. However, I have to say that seeing a little cat chase a German Shepherd out of a bedroom is pretty damn funny. Hopefully, they’ll be fast friends soon so we won’t have to keep them separate all the time.

Good news! We’re putting together the audiobook for Devils Glen, and it’s going quite well. I’ll announce the details on Facebook and Twitter soon–hopefully within the next couple of weeks. It will be available on Amazon/Audible and iTunes. It’s fun, but kind of frustrating at the same time.
It’s interesting to go back now and read it again after all these months–interesting and frustrating too. I see so many things I wish I’d done differently in hindsight. You go through rounds and rounds of editing and re-writing, cleaning up and fixing, checking and re-checking, and still, there’s always room for improvement! It’s been a learning experience, for sure. Continue reading
Hello everyone! It’s been a very hectic Fall, but here we are with the holidays upon us. What a whirlwind year it has been, and we still have another month to go! This year we have a lot to be thankful for–from a new book released to a short story published to Michelle’s pinstripe purses selling to Reznor playing football and getting fantastic grades to our Tahoe honeymoon to our brand new dog, Rosie! It’s been a lot of fun, but now we’re exhausted and need some R and R this holiday season.
Thanks to all of you who came out for the book signing in October–seems like that was six months ago! We had a nice turnout and sold almost all of the books I brought with me. It was a lot of fun hanging out with old friends down at Sports Fans Pizza in Bettendorf and getting to speak at St. Ambrose and Bettendorf High School. And of course getting to be at my nephew’s wedding was the icing on the cake! Continue reading
The new horror anthology The Edge: Infinite Darkness was released today. My short story Morgan’s Girl was selected for this collection last Spring, so hopefully it holds its own with the other stories, which I hear are pretty frightening.
By the way, as I’m writing this post, Infinite Darkness is already the number four horror anthology on Amazon, behind the likes of Clive Barker and H.P. Lovecraft! Not too shabby. (Actually, it just hit number 1!!!!) Get your copy today—it’s only 3.99 for the Kindle version and 14.99 for the paperback. Check it out here. Continue reading
Michelle and I finally got to take our honeymoon last month and I have to say it was amazing, though it seriously needed to be longer. Seven days in Lake Tahoe is just not enough–I want to go back now! The scenery was mind-blowing and staying in a cabin on the lake is just crazy fun. The photo above was taken at Sugar Pine Point State Park, which was about ten minutes from our cabin. The water in Lake Tahoe is crystal clear, almost like you’re in Hawaii or the Carribean.

Hey everyone! So sorry, it’s been a crazy long time since my last post–I can’t believe the last time I posted was in April!
Things have been great. Devils Glen has sold pretty well, so far, and people from all over the country have reached out to let me know how much they liked the book. Word of mouth grows, little by little, and the wonderful reviews have certainly helped. If you haven’t had a chance to leave a review on Amazon, please do!
First, I must thank Dwyer & Michaels and the rest of the people at 97X for the awesome article they posted about Devils Glen last week. I saw an immediate jump in sales as a result.
Devils Glen has been gradually rising up the charts. At one point this week it was the 11th hottest new release in Horror/Dark Fantasy on Amazon. Pretty cool!
That is all thanks to the wonderful “Quad Citizens” out there telling their friends about it and posting stuff on Facebook, Twitter, etc. And of course, the fantastic reviews on Amazon are great too. I’m humbled. Word of mouth truly has an impact. Keep it up!

Hi everyone! Kindle Press is currently running a promotion for all their Kindle Scout titles. Each Kindle version is .99 cents. I thought it would be great to highlight some of the authors whose books were Kindle Scout selections.

Mr. Cole is an award-winning author who has published several books, all of which are currently available on Amazon, including his Kindle Scout selection, Raven’s Peak, Book 1 of the World on Fire series.
