Plague of Darkness German edition - new cover art

A quick detour from my pathetic attempt at promoting Solomon's Grave (though I have an idea which I'll share with the 2 people that read this blog and everyone on my various lists, a little later).... in keeping with the pattern of Europe buying my work first (someone once called me the David Halsselhoff of Horror) my novel Plague of Darkness is coming out in Germany in September by Otherworld Verlag - it just got a new cover. The title, of course, is Plage der Finsternis, as it's in Deutsche (German), but I like the cover art (neither me nor my editor Michael Krug know for sure what the symbol in the corner means... not yet, we're trying to find out, lol).
Plage already has garnered some major interest by bookstores, thanks to a new distributor who hopes the book's potential success could also carry Das Grab des Salomon to a new audience as well. Here's hoping.

Sig Ep Lives

Last night, I went out to the Chateau in Westborough, MA (special shout out to Andrea, our waitress - I tipped her with a free copy of the book, lol) for a gathering of a bunch of my brothers from the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. Had a terrific time, and it was great to see some guys I literally hadn't seen in near 23 years! Yikes. Special thanks to Boof and Stretch (Ken and Mike) for organizing the impromptu dinner and book signing. A few couldn't make it last minute, but we still had a great crowd: (I'd better go in order of seating so I don't mess up) Craig, Paul, Fran, Jim, Jeff, Scott, Tim and (fratnernity) big brother Dave: I'll make sure it's not another 23 years before I see some of you all again . :-)

The Monkey Man Interviews The Monkey Man!

Hey! Good friend and fellow writer L. L. Soares has posted Part One of a two-part interview with me on his blog: ! He had some great questions and let me ramble on in my usual way. (You probably know the Monkey reference for me, but you'd only get it for Lauran if you've been to a convention with him in the past, lol).

Much appreciated, Lauran! Everyone, go check it out....

And while you're there, check out my most recent author photo, taken my my 12-year old daughter Audrey....
