Sooo…it could just be that I’ve been reading Bizarro fiction as of late, but I’ve been wanting to circle back to the insanity and freedom of writing that was The Lost Pages of Trevor Sunburn. When I had written that novel, I just came out of finishing a novel for young adults (or perhaps I should say ALL audiences, as it was written with older adults in mind as well) so naturally I’d wanted to lash out without restraint when I got my fingers back on the keyboard again.

I’d been reading a lot of Burroughs around that time as well, so I’m sure that leeched into the manuscript in more than one instance. The result was the fastest and most fun novel I’d ever written that contained, as one friend put it, “a lot of fluids.” Continue reading

Well it’s been awhile, but I have a couple updates. The Lost Pages of Trevor Sunburn is coming soon, at $12.95 on trade paperback and $2.99 on Kindle. The initial test proof has been ordered and should be arriving in a couple days for review and once I’ve made any necessary tweaks, I’ll be ready to announce a release date, which will be before the Spring.
Above is the rough cover I worked up last week, which may or may not look like shit on the final print, and if it’s the latter, we’ll have ourselves a bloody book! This one was actually completed a couple years ago and was the most fun I’ve ever had writing. I basically did anything I wanted, not worrying about tradition or rules, and I think this experimental novel will be just as fun for you to read. Or at least I hope 😉
So hold on tight, because The Lost Pages of Trevor Sunburn have been found and the Change is coming soon!

The horrors of real life won’t allow me to add a long, well thought out post today. With that in mind I’ll give you a preview of what’s to come, then leave you with another writing sample; this one from The Lost Pages of Trevor Sunburn, and I warn you, it’s not for the kids!!!
Coming up is a discussion about my disgust with 90% of remakes, and CGI VS practical effects, and I encourage you to comment and stir up some debate in these dreaditorials. I’ll also be reviewing some older, obscure horror movies I
feel you should demand you check out if you haven’t already.
Well the lawn isn’t gonna cut itself, so here’s a sample from my experimental horror/adventure/sci-fi/black comedy/surreal novel, The Lost Pages of Trevor Sunburn, which will be up for sale along with Dōguhn in the not too distant future. Continue reading
