    Milestone: The Collected Stories

    Hey folks:

    I'm delighted to announce the release of MILESTONE: THE COLLECTED STORIES, Vol. 1, available now on Amazon and Smashwords for digital. Will be working on a paper release soon too.

    Here's the info:

    Milestone small.jpg

    From the Bram Stoker Award-Winning author of THE TURTLE BOY, KIN, and JACK & JILL.

    Somewhere out west there is a town called Milestone. You will not find it on any map. If you're lucky, you won't find it at all.

    Once a thriving mining community, the few souls who still dwell there know nothing of hope and everything of damnation. Because Milestone may appear near-death, a ghost town in the making, but it is very much alive.

    There are the stories of invisible barriers that open and close the borders on a whim, sometimes fatally, the whispers of a man in a top hat who comes cycling up out of the darkness of the abandoned mine to change the fate of the town, the buried music box that summons him, the people with unnatural powers, the old man who counts stacks of pennies and prays they never fall...and the fires that burn brightly with the sounds of screams.

    Milestone is very much alive, and those unlucky souls trapped within its borders have little choice but to learn the true nature of their prison, or become its latest victim.

    And even as they fight against the inevitable, the borders continue to expand.

    Milestone is growing.

    Included in the following book are the novellas “The Witch”, “Saturday Night at Eddie’s”, “Thirty Miles South of Dry County” and “The Palaver”.

    I'm not sure if that's good or bad when talking about Milestone.

    I plan on having some extra material in the print release, as it's looking likely that it'll be a limited edition, if that helps the decision at all.

    That's great news! If/when you can give an update on something in print that would be great.

    I'd probably just do the limited and eschew the paperback. We'll see how it pans out. Still in talks.
