    BLANKY

    "In the wake of his infant daughter's tragic death, Steve Brannigan is struggling to keep himself together. Estranged from his wife, who refuses to be inside the house where the unthinkable happened, and unable to work, he seeks solace in an endless parade of old sitcoms and a bottle of bourbon.

    Until one night he hears a sound from his daughter's old room, a room now stripped bare of anything that identified it as hers...except for her security blanket, affectionately known as Blanky.

    Blanky, old and frayed, with its antiquated patchwork of badly sewn rabbits with black button eyes, who appear to be staring at the viewer...

    Blanky, purchased from a strange old man at an antique stall selling "BABY CLOSE" at a discount.

    The presence of Blanky in his dead daughter's room heralds nothing short of an unspeakable nightmare that threatens to take away what little light remains in Steve's shattered world.

    Because his daughter loved Blanky so much, he buried her with it."

    A new novella from the Bram Stoker Award-Winning author of SOUR CANDY and KIN.

    Coming soon...

    I'm still recovering from the psychological trauma of writing it!

    Only digital for the moment, but as history has shown, that doesn't mean a limited won't follow.

    If you guys are on Facebook, we have a cool launch party planned for this Tuesday night (9/12), in which we're giving away a metric ton of books by various authors as well as a signed manuscript of the alternate prologue to BLANKY, which comes with a note from me explaining why it didn't make it into the finished book.

    Check it out here, and thanks to all who've preordered the book thus far!
