Looking forward to all the releases. I will be getting Jack and Jill and Shocklines and Smoke and Mirrors as they are already on order. I just received an arc of shocklines.Going to try for the limited novella collection but will be happy with the Trade PB.Who knows I might end up with the entire collection of releases.

Looking forward to these. Hope I can get a hold of Jack and Jill! Have Shocklines ordered. If The End of Us is in the 15th year celebration anthology (which will have a different name when it is ready, of course) then I have that one ordered as well

"The End of Us" will be in an as-yet unannounced anthology.

Getting Theatre Macabre for sure as I'm a member of the BMB book club. Already paid for itself too.

Any update to provide on this? I know many folks would love to dive back into that gritty and dirty world of yours.

Hi Tim: There are about ten chapters written, but between cover design work and Night Falls On Memory Lane, I can't say for sure right now when it will see the light of day, only that it will. What I can tell you is that it's a much different book than Kin, less Texas Chainsaw and more crime/mystery than its predecessor, though it's plenty grim and almost suffocatingly dark.

Ben Staad

Excellent news. Hope this gets some mainstream attention and some love from the small press folks.

Looking forward to it.

Does anyone else subscribe to Kealan's newsletter? I could have sworn I had read in it that he had a new novel almost complete or coming soon. However I think I deleted the newsletter and I don't see any update like that on his website.

I don’t subscribe to his newsletter, but last I heard he was working on the sequel to KIN and that there was an upcoming limited compiling all of his Milestone stories. I’m very eager to read both.

From Mr. Burkes last newsletter:

Before we get to the meat of this newsletter, I wanted to let you know that I am closing in on the end of Mr. Stitch, my first new novel in six years. It's been a long road to get this monster out into the world, but I hope when it finally learns to stand, you'll appreciate it despite its scars and ugliness. I'll share more news as I can, but rest assured, just because it may seem quiet, doesn't mean I'm not always up to something wicked...

Hey guys, sorry it took me a minute to respond. To address what's already been said here, yes, I'm closing in on the end of Mr. Stitch, which is shaping up to be something very different for me. After that, I'll be starting on the next novel, already plotted and ready to rumble.

Plans for a limited of Milestone have, sadly, fallen by the wayside, as it looks like the publisher got busy with other things. The book is, however, still available in both digital and trade paperback editions. Speaking of which, I've also recently made my autumnal collection DEAD LEAVES available in paperback for the first time. You can find both of these books at the usual online retailers.

And last but not least, there's the new collection, We Live Inside Your Eyes, which I'm very excited about, as I think it represents my best work to date and will feature some material written just for the book. This will be released in April of next year. You can keep up to date with what's happening via the blog on my website: www.kealanpatrickburke.com/blog (http://www.kealanpatrickburke.com/blog)

Sadly, a KIN sequel is a good ways away, if it happens at all. I have the plot and some of it written, but there are other stories I have to/want to write first, and those will always take precedence. I have to absolutely need to write the story, to be consumed by it, or the likelihood is it won't be as good as it needs to be, and that's just not where I am right now.

I love Kin and would love a sequel but not for the sake of a sequel. If it does not due the original justice then it was not needed. Any update on Digital 50?

Kin is one of those books I keep meaning to grab and then I forget. I'm going to put it on my WANT TO READ list on Goodreads while I'm thinking about it. Sounds awesome.

Yes, exactly. I've never written anything I didn't feel absolutely compelled to write. It would certainly be apparent in the work if I did.

As for Digital 50, the next title going out will be the collection in April. I'm also hoping to get the signed short story out to everyone by then.

That's because it hasn't gone out yet. But it will, hopefully before the next book in the program is due.

Hope I'm posting this question in the appropriate place. Any chance "Nemesis: The Death of Timmy Quinn" will ever be rereleased as a hardcover? I've kept my out on the secondary market and have never seen a copy come up for sale. Would love to be able to add this book to my collection and complete the Timmy Quinn series, as I have the other four books in the series.

There are no immediate plans to rerelease NEMESIS in hardcover, I'm afraid, though who knows what the future holds? In the meantime, it's still available in digital and paperback.

Didn't Thunderstorm Books release a hard cover of this a few years back?

Yes they did. It was limited to 325 signed copies and is long sold out. They issued a collected Timmy Quinn called Stage Whispers at the same time. That one is signed and numbered and limited to 75 copies. I think they are very hard to acquire at this point. I know mine will not be leaving my collection!
