    Excellent, Richard. I believe I'll add this to my gigantic to-be-read pile. I should get to it by mid-2015.

    STARING INTO THE ABYSS releases today! Whatever help you can offer, I'd really appreciate it. Spread the word!

    Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Staring-into-A.../dp/9197972592

    Microsite: http://abyss.krakenpress.com/

    "The stories in STARING INTO THE ABYSS are little literary predators that are smart, savage, and stealthy, with a lethal pounce at the end. Readers who enjoy finely-crafted and genuinely disturbing dark fiction will love Richard Thomas's outstanding collection."
    --Lisa Morton, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Monsters in L.A.

    "STARING INTO THE ABYSS by Richard Thomas is an outstanding book, a grim tapestry of broken lives and shattered dreams, of dark fantasies and dark reflections. It's one of the better single-author collections I've had the pleasure to read in recent years, and as such, gets my highest recommendation. It's also a fine testament to a talent I suspect we are going to be hearing a lot more from, and soon."
    --Kealan Patrick Burke, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Turtle Boy, and Kin.

    "With STARING INTO THE ABYSS, Richard Thomas takes you on a ride into a world of darkness and despair, punches you in the gut, and leaves you breathless. You'll hug your psyche a little tighter after reading."
    --Damien Walters Grintalis, author of Ink

    "STARING INTO THE ABYSS is gritty and ugly, seductive and sexy. Inside these filthy walls you will find everything you've ever feared you'd become; thugs, drunks, cons, prostitutes, murderers. Think of these pages as a mirror of what anyone--even you--can become, after just a few critical mistakes in life. Richard Thomas has proven time and again that he is one of the rising stars in the neo-noir culture. With Staring into the Abyss, he proves he has mastered it." --Max Booth III, author of True Stories Told By a Liar and Black Cadillacs

    "NO ONE DOES IT like Richard Thomas. Dark and disturbing, his unique blend of horror and noir digs its way into your psyche and leaves you begging for more."
    -C. W. LaSart, author of Ad Nauseam

    Two things:

    First: Today and tomorrow, I am offering most of my kid's books for FREE on Kindle in hopes of seeing some reviews. If you have or know kids who might enjoy them, please feel free to pick up a copy or gift them. Or even if you're an adult that appreciates this sort of thing. I hope you enjoy the stories and pictures. Use this list to see which one's are FREE.

    Second: If you'd like to sign up for all of my Goodreads giveaways, I created this easy to use page with all of them listed. Enjoy, and be sure to add them to your "TO READ" list.

    I woke up to this news and thought a few of you might be interested. Limited edition hardcovers of some of the more popular anthologies over at PMP. Some excellent stories by authors that are very well-known and some that aren't so well-known.

    (edit)
    Big congrats, Richard.

    Thanks Ozmosis. And that new site is just called The Grinder or The (Submissions) Grinder. It's small as yet but I imagine it'll grow pretty steadily.
