With my Novel, The Warrior Retreat out wide today, I’m putting the finishing touches on my collection which I intend to put out in April, I’m also working on a teen slasher/creature feature, and I’m in the beginning stages of planning a military horror series, think S-Squad, but extreme
I'd never really been interested in writing a novel until earlier this year when some folks read a short story of mine and said "This would make a good novel." I realized they were right, and have spent this month expanding that story into a larger universe.
Right now I'm working on an on-spec horror novella, and then I have a few short stories to write for anthologies. After that, I'll start on The Book of Madness, the sequel to The Atrocity Engine which is coming out from Aethon Books sometime in 2023.
I just released my first horror novel and I’m working on producing the audiobook right now. I’m hoping to have it out within the next couple of weeks. I also write in several other genres including fantasy and adventure. I’ve got another in my EXOTIC BIRDS series in the works now. After that one is complete, I’m going to be working on a spin off series with a good friend of mine.

Supposed to be reviewing first pass pages this week, but it's my first time doing this with a novel and I have to get past the minor freakout of seeing the typeset pages first lol. Technically work-related freaking out is still work, right?
Should be finding a new publisher for my second horror book, since we've parted ways after a couple years of things being dragged out and countless promises to get the ball rolling. But that part's been an uphill battle. So I'm working on a bunch of short stories and a couple novellas instead. Shared setting, some continuity and through-line, but a lot of one shots. Should probably find beta readers too, but hardly know where to begin with that.
I'm trying to get some traction on a longer short story (possibly a novella) (possibly a novel :/) about a woman whose father dies and starts haunting the family car. I'm also shopping around a collection of short stories.
Couple of things, as usual. A cross-genre supernatural adventure thriller, a historical horror novel, and a horror novella about the boogeyman.
I'm a bit ADHD when it comes to working on projects, I tend to work on them in spurts, switch, and then come back, which is why I often go a year or two without releasing anything except some short stories and then have multiple projects come out, because they all finish around the same time. That's why I'm shopping 2 novels and a novella right now!

I started writing the next book in my Jackson Reed thriller series. I'm working on a vacation-themed horror collection. I'll release the collection in the spring. There are a lot of short stories and novellas on my hard drive to clean up. I'll work on those next year, as well as a few novels I stopped writing for one reason or another.

I'm back to working on my next book, Errant Roots, which is a novella. I'm doing my first edit on it and so far it's going well! I know I'll have more work to do once my editor takes a look, but at least I'll be sending it to her with confidence.
reggielutz: @johiay: lol it was a bar in Mountaintop PA. Currently the Mountaintop Pub and Eatery. I wasn't around at all when they filmed there but I just heard about it. And I didn't see the episode but it aired last night. My brain just went, "Whaaaat!?!"

reggielutz: Does anyone over here remember a song with the lyric "Alan Moore knows the score"? Not the Pop Will Eat Itself song though, that's not the one that's in my head.
