April 2011 News - Crimson vs. Thor & More!

Well, I've been teasing about this new story for months, and now it's finally here.

I didn't want to reveal the name of it until it was out, 'cause I thought it was just "too good" -- that is, good enough that I didn't want anyone else pouncing on it before I did.

See the article below for more on "Thor Loser."

Also in this newsletter, an update on Frost Harrow, an updated Appearances Calendar and Editorial Calendar. Plus, some links to some new wallpapers as well.

Clearly this is a banner month for both old-time newsletter subscribers and newcomers, too.


THOR LOSER - A Mythical Battle of Wits & Weapons!

As I said above, I've been teasing this one a while, and now it's finally here!

Most of you probably know that Crimson is one of my favorite characters. When writing about her, I often had that feeling that Robert E. Howard described about Conan -- that the character is standing next to my shoulder, telling me about her latest adventure, and I'm just the guy writing things down.

This tale is a knock-down drag-out doozy. Though, like all Crimson tales so far, it's a stand-alone story, it also ties into last year's "Crash of the Titans" as well as adding new info to the developing Crimson mythology.

Like epic battles? This is for you. Like Norse myths? This is for you. Like funny homages to godly super-heroes? This is for you. Want to get a glimpse into Crimson's heretofore mysterious past? This one is really for you.

Plus, it's a steal at only $1.49 in all e-book forms.

So, what are you waiting for? Buy it!

Frost Harrow Update

Frost Harrow is a series of modern-day Gothic horror novels in the tradition of Dark Shadows.

The series is a long-term project -- which means I've been working on it since around 1996. At one point (1999), the five finished books were available as e-books from a now-defunct online publisher. Yeah, 1999. Who had e-book readers then? The books were ahead of their time -- too much so.

I've been talking about reviving the series for years, and now that talk is finally turning into action. This year, I intend to release two or three of the Frost books in both print and e-book form.

The trick is, they're 15 years old. The world has changed in that time -- and I've become a better writer, too. I can't just put them out "as is," so each book is being lovingly revised and rewritten to bring them into the new millennium. It's taking longer than I'd hoped, but I want the results to be truly spectacular.

Frost Harrow #1 is in the final stages of revision, and I'm starting work on FH#2. I've re-designed the logos and all the covers are getting brand new art, too.

I'm very excited about this series, and I hope you will be, too. You can follow the day-to-day and week-to-week progress of the Frost series on my Twitter and Facebook accounts.
