BAD APPLE Not all things in the orchard are safe to pick.

Today is my 40th birthday (that’s right, I’m just a few months older than Walt Disney World), and what a present I got this year! I’m thrilled to announce that Vagabondage Press Books has just picked up my first horror novel, BAD APPLE.

BAD APPLE will be released this year in print and electronic versions. We’re in the very early stages now, so I don’t have many more details, but I will keep you all posted—I know this book has been anticipated by many of you for a long time.

Vagabondage has been publishing The Battered Suitcase since 2008; BAD APPLE is part of the debut of their novel, novella, and novelette line. If you’d like more information about Vagabondage, visit their website:

  1. Congratulations, and a happy birthday too! This is wonderful news. (The acceptance, and maybe the birthday as well.)

  2. Hey, congratulations on the book. The birthday, well, it’s certainly better than waking up and being fifty.
