An Update On All Things Keohane & Gunn


I send out a newsletter now and then (not too often), and I recently had an update. If you'd like to receive these just send an email to danielgkeohane at gmail dot com and ask to be put on the list. Be more than happy to!

Hi, everyone. Long time no talk. A lot's been going on in the writing world of Daniel G Keohane / G Daniel Gunn, so let's jump right into it:

Solomon's Grave version 2

After a seven year run with Dragon Moon Press, I recently got the rights back to my first published novel, Solomon's Grave from the publisher and have put it out again under the Other Road Press line, so it will still be available. Beforehand, I ran through the manuscript, tightening it up a bit and trying to make it read less "first novel"-ish. :)  Special shout-out to cover artist Lynne Hansen who did the spectacular new cover for this second edition. It's now available (at a much lower price for the print edition) at all outlets, as well as the kindle on Amazon. You can find it all here: https://goo.gl/Z3w7pt


Nightmare in Greasepaint Going Away (For Now)

Samhain Publishing has folded its entire horror line, and reverted the rights back to all of its authors. Well, it was fun while it lasted. Lauran (LL) Soares and I are considering options for finding a new publisher for Nightmare in Greasepaint, getting it back into print in some manner. Until then, looks like the novella, and the overall anthology Childhood Fears, is officially out of print as of this morning.

Wicked Witches

This past October Scott Goudsward, David Price and I edited a new anthology for the New England Horror Writers, called Wicked Witches: An Anthology of the New England Horror Writers. Twenty-four original short stories and poems from some of the best horror writers in the New England region. This anthology has taken off in a huge way since its release in Salem on Halloween weekend, including a two-page spread in Rue Morgue Magazine! The three of us were interviewed a little while ago on the Taco Society podcast as well if you want to learn more (see it here: http://dankeohane.blogspot.com/2016/11/wicked-witches-interview-at-taco-society.html)

New Movie Reviews

Since we last talked, I've had a few new film reviews out with Cinema Knife Fight, including FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM, 400 DAYS, BEN-HUR, etc. You find find a list of what's out there at http://dankeohane-reviews.blogspot.com/

Speaking of Samhain Dropping Horror

Borderlands 6, the anthology which featured my and Paul Tremblay''s story "Shattered" and many more amazing works, has put its trade paperback out through Samhain, so I'm not certain how long this version will be available before it dissapears. The Trade Paperback (and Kindle) are still out there at https://goo.gl/2GdJJF (and the deluxe hardcover as well direct from Borderlands Press is here: https://goo.gl/z4bljv )

What About New Stuff?

Glad you asked, since all good. My new sci-fi novel Plague of Locusts (Daniel G Keohane) is done, and at the moment I'm pinging a few agents, trying the soul-crushing process again of trying to find an agent and/or publisher. Anyone know of any good ones who might want to take a look, let me know.

Also, nearly the same with a new horror novel Lost in the Woods (G Daniel Gunn). This is is creepy and, I think, a riot. I haven't laughed this much editing a novel. Now, what I think is amusing and the rest of the world isn't always the same thing, and it's not a comedy, but it has its moments. This one is just about in the can, just need to finish the final round of edits before getting it into some early readers' hands. It's good though, and pretty original.

I think that's it. No new short fiction, hasn't been a short story in a long time. Been focusing on the novels.

Hope everyone had a great round of holidays and here's to hoping 2017 is a good one... I mean a really, really good one.

Dan
