Yep. Today I’m gonna pimp my shit out. I don’t do it very often (which means not nearly enough), and I should. I can tell you all about the books I’m making, but if I don’t tell you where you can buy/read them, what good does it do?
To date, here is the list of things that I’ve had published:
1) Breakneck issues 1-3: physical print by 215 Ink.
2) Breakneck issue 4: digital release only by 215 Ink.
3) Long Gone: physical print by Markosia Entertainment.
4) A short story in FUBAR volume 2: Empire of the Rising Dead: physical print by FUBAR Press/Alterna.
5) A short story in the Oxymoron hardcover: physical print by ComixTribe.
6) A short story in Weird Zombie Horror: physical print by Black Ship Books.

That’s all the listings I can find currently. And please don’t take this as me shilling for your cash. That’s not the point here. The point is to get my books in front of you for you to read and judge for yourself. And if you like them, recommend them, pass them on to someone else to read.
I’m not in this to get rich. I’m in this to tell stories, and I’ve just given you a whole lot of ways you can read those stories. For those who’ve read my books, who’ve spent their hard-earned money on them, all I can say is thank you very much. For those who are thinking about it, or will read something down the line, please let me know what you think. I will always welcome the feedback.
