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: http://www.vagabondagepress.com/index.html
My short story “Waterproof”—which Battered Suitcase editor Fawn Neun called “eerily touching”—is now available in the magazine’s Winter 2010 Issue! This story was part of my Bachelor’s thesis at Burlington College and was written in 2006. It stayed hidden in a drawer for many years, and after many people who had read early versions of it asked me when it would be available in print, I went in search of a home for it earlier this year. The Battered Suitcase was it!
The great thing about The Battered Suitcase is that there is a version of each issue for every taste and budget. From their website:
