You thought I forgot about you, didn’t you, blog? Don’t worry, I’m just negligent! But this new release is so exciting I’ve got to make sure everybody sees it. My first-ever standalone splatterpunk novel is out today, available wherever books are sold in paperback as well as ebook.
Ever wonder what would happen if Wednesday Addams met Calvin & Hobbes on a science museum field trip where they found the disgruntled janitor’s guns? I did! Meet Miranda Even and Luther & Paine. Smokeland will never be the same.
Scientific progress goes splat!
Luther Watson is an anxious boy. His best friend, Paine, assures him that he has no reason to be, but what could Paine know of anxiety? No bipedal wolf capable of disguising itself as a stuffed animal has anything to worry about…especially when the only person who can see him is Luther.
That is, until a field trip to the Smokeland Science Museum introduces him to Miranda Even, the disturbing daughter of an eccentric family of Smokeland locals. Her morbid interest in all the parts of life most others try to ignore soon have the new friends embroiled in a scheme to determine just why, exactly, the science museum’s old janitor was so freaked out to be fired without having a chance to clean his office…and as the answer turns out to be far more dangerous than expected, chaos overtakes the science museum, people will die, and–oh, yeah.
A woman-eating wolf is on the loose.
Welcome to Smokeland.
This splatterific romp is meant to be fun and funny as well as horrifying, so if dead kids can’t make you laugh under any circumstances, I wouldn’t read this if I were you.
