Here’s the big news—7 SYKOS is out!

Just in ebook form at this writing, but it comes out in paperback on March 1. If it’s not at the bookstore you check, ask them to order it—that’s a great way to get more stores to order it.

The book is by me and my partner, Marsheila (Marcy) Rockwell, and we’re very happy with the way it turned out. HarperCollins Voyager Impulse, the publisher, describes it as “The Walking Dead meets The Andromeda Strain in this fast-paced mix of science fiction and horror.”

Here’s the rest of what they say:

Detached from the world, how are seven psychopaths going to save it?

Phoenix is one of the most populated cities in America…but not for long. With a mysterious sickness spreading through the streets, two things are becoming very clear: there’s no cure, and it doesn’t necessarily kill you.

Instead, the so-called “Infecteds” have become a living plague, killing and eating everyone they come into contact with. Chaos is spreading, and no one is safe.

No one, that is, except for a group of psychos.

Somehow unaffected by the disease—and with promises of clemency for their monstrous pasts—a group of seven is sent downtown to hopefully find the cause of the disease…and therefore a cure. But when the asylum is the size of a city, it no longer matters who is running things.

Not when everyone is running for their lives.

You can read a few chapters of 7 SYKOS for free here, and at the publisher’s page you’ll find links for whatever ebook platform you favor.

The other thing that’s just out is the short story “The Lottons Show,” which Marcy and I were very proud to have launch an entire new program of horror shorts, the Cutting Block Single Slices line, from Farolight Publishing/Cutting Block Books. “The Lottons Show” is only available for Kindle, and you can buy it here.

In other news, we’re working on a novel trilogy about everyone’s favorite Warrior Princess, Xena! And I’m writing a novel based on the hit CBS-TV show NCIS: Los Angeles. More to come on both of those. It’s going to be a busy year, so stay tuned!

Thanks for reading!
