Kindling - US Canada Ebook Cover

With the US/Canada ebook release of Kindling mere days away, here’s an insider’s view of the hot new cover (you see what I did there?). Two burning thumbs-up to Exciting Press Creative Director, Will Entrekin, for his fine work.

One thing about this confronting image – it ought to make fans concerned for Kieran’s safety very angry. I can imagine the hate-mail arriving already:

You sent your 10 year old, autism-diagnosed protagonist into this fiery maelstrom!? Really!? What sort of sicko author does that!? What sort of monster are you!?

(Note to self: send your next 10 year old, autism-diagnosed protagonist to a lovely inviting forest, full of marshmallows and rainbows and dolphins…and zombies.)

Exciting Press figures my venn diagram is a little more adjacent than Snooki’s.

In a deal announced by Exciting’s Creative Director, Will Entrekin, the cutting edge US indie publisher and I have signed a four book deal, encompassing my backlist quartet of novels – KindlingThe Umbilical Word, Most Valuable Potential and The Procrastinator.  The deal permits me to join a stable of wonderful writing talent that includes James Brown, Kurt Wenzel and Aussie literary icon, Nick Earls.

I’m really thrilled about the opportunities ahead with this partnership.  It represents a new lease of life for all my once-upon-a-time-in-print works.  Particularly gratifying is that, for the first time in any format, Kindling will be available in North America.

Stay tuned for release details and dates.  And if you’re a fan of Snooki, I’m sorry this post was so long.

Real writers don’t make excuses.

People have told me I have a lot of ‘life’ excuses to not write.  I have a beautiful wife.  I have two wondrous kids, one of whom has autism.  I enjoy time with friends and family.  I work.  I have a mortgage.  I am the ultimate armchair sports fan.  I never turn down a beer.  I have an unhealthy fondness for karaoke.
