Happy Hollydays! Now Available

A Collection of Celebratory Poppycock



Whether it’s the guardian dog of the underworld, or a massive beast waiting to eat you, you have to know that a big black dog is bad news on Halloween. What you might not have realized is that Hades is a reasonable guy, and rabbits don’t, in fact, wear scarves.

Valentine’s Day isn’t just for romance; it’s also for summoning your favourite demons. Christmas is a time for family, but it’s also a time for exploring alternate origins of Santa Claus and a time for reindeer to learn about morality. Oh, and cookies. It’s time for a buttload of cookies.

Traditional Halloween horrors and Christmas joy are mixed with April Fool’s jokes and Christmas murder (among other things) to produce this collection of short stories sure to make you thankful for your own less outrageous traditions.

The Dragon’s Toenail – Art Teaser

As I’ve mentioned previously, Ellustration has done several illustrations for The Dragon’s Toenail. Here are a couple of previews of the magic:


A small hand?


A mug? An octopus? Who knows?


Is that…a spoon?


Something is watching you.

One more, just for fun:


What the…is that an apple core?

I hope you are now intrigued.

The Dragon’s Toenail is due out by August 30. I will make another announcement when it’s available.

The Three shall conquer all!

Remember, the eight free chapters of The Dragon’s Toenail available on this blog will be gone on August 21, 2015 (Friday!). Editing has changed some of the minor details. Read ’em while they’re there!
