Winston & Baum and the Trials of the Baba Yaga is now live and available for your Kindle, with paperback versions expected to be available by the end of next week. You can click on the cover below to pick up your digital copy.
You can actually come out and see me this weekend at Mobicon in Mobile, Alabama. While I won’t have copies of book 4, I will have copies of the first three books in the Winston & Baum steampunk adventure series, as well as copies of Friedkin’s Curse. My wife and cover artist will also be selling copies of her prints and original 3d sculptures. You can view more of her work here. If you are looking for something to do this Memorial Day weekend, swing by and say hey and pick up a book or some art.
I am also currently working on the next two Winston & Baum related projects. The first is a collection of short stories featuring other exterminators of the strange and weird that have been introduced in the main Winston & Baum series, , as well as an early adventure of Dan and Lee’s. I decided to do this after I had so much fun writing Brackish’s short story for Winston & Baum and the Disk of Night. The other project is the fifth Winston & Baum novel, which will be unlike any of the other stories and not be based on regional folklore or mythology. It’s definitely going to be interesting.
That’s all from me for right now, but keep checking back for more information on where I’ll be and what I’m working on.
Hello faithful readers, I wanted to give you all a heads up that the fourth Winston & Baum book, Winston & Baum and the Trials of the Baba Yaga is now available for pre-order on the Kindle. The Kindle version will be available on May 23rd, just in time for summer!

I know a lot of you are going to be busy getting ready for your Memorial Day plans next week, so go ahead and order this book to read on the beach. Just click on the cover below to pre-order your new copy. We are working on having print editions available within the next two weeks.
Curious about what this book is about? Read the synopsis below.
“As the war between Britain and Prussia continues to rage on, Baba Yaga, the legendary witch of Prussia, takes a firm stand against the foreign army with all of her supernatural allies. Dan and Lee are pulled apart as Lee is drafted into a special unit of hunters being sent to deal with the monstrous menace. With his ship lost behind enemy lines and most of his unit captured, Lee and the Scottish hunter, Brogan, must attempt to make their way back towards friendly territory, but it won’t be an easy task as the Baba Yaga’s forces hound their every step.
When word that Lee is missing reaches home, Dan and Brackish set out on a dangerous mission to save their friend. Following Lee’s path, the two hunters soon learn that the dangers their friend faces are even greater than they imagined. As they race through the Prussian countryside, Dan and Brackish try to reach Lee before the Baba Yaga can get him in her clutches.
As they fight to survive, can the exterminators of the strange and weird endure the trials of the Baba Yaga?”
Keep checking back for updates on our print edition and all the latest on where I’ll be appearing this summer.
We started this panel last year, and everyone had such a good time that they brought it back for another go-round. A fun panel discussing different elements of horror in scifi or scifi in horror, it’s tough to tell which is which honestly. Just listen and enjoy. I was joined on this panel by Alan Gilbreath, editor in chief of Dark Oak Press, Tim Green, operator of Ruby Falls Haunted Cavern, and Chad Sides, the Master of Horror for Connooga. Sit back and enjoy!
This is the third year that this panel has been going, and I’m proud to say that I’ve been apart of it all three years. This panel is the guests sharing stories that are somewhat spooky and in some cases a little funny. Besides myself, Alan Gilbreath, Editor in Chief of Dark Oak Press; Mark Fults, paranormal investigator and psychic; Amy Petula, paranormal investigator and owner of Chattanooga Ghost Tours; and Chad Sides, master of horror for Connooga, all joined in to share their stories. Sit back and enjoy, but you might want to leave the lights on for this one. Warning: There will be adult themes and language in the audio below.
So following the Craft of Lovecraft panel, my next panel was Classic Horror vs Modern Horror (specifically films). Rejoining me were Tim Green, Chad Sides (Master of Horror for Connooga), Tony Young, and last, but most definitely not least the wonderful Victoria Price, daughter of horror icon Vincent Price. Listen below and let me know your thoughts. And as before, there is adult commentary on this panel.
Victoria Price, daughter of legendary Vincent Price.
You can listen to my first panel of the con below. This was a fun panel for me. Chad Sides, the Master of Horror for Connooga, Tim Green, the creator of Ruby Falls Haunted Cavern and myself have a great time discussing the works of H.P. Lovecraft with the room. Also, you’ll get to hear us try and convince Tim to give Lovecraft another read to see if he can’t get into this time. And as a disclaimer, you will hear some adult concepts and language in this panel.
Hey guys, I’m back from another great Connooga and wanted to tell you guys some of the great things that I had an opportunity to participate in. First of all, let me say that I’ll be posting the audio from the panels that I participated in. So, don’t worry there will be more to come.
The con was a great show, and I can’t wait to go back next year. I was able to co-host a panel with Victoria Price, daughter of horror icon Vincent Price.
I also got to judge the 2017 Connooga Scream Queen contest alongside Martin Klebba from Scrubs, and The Pirates of the Caribbean films.
We saw a lot of amazing cosplay. One of the cosplay guests was Michael “Knightmage” Wilson. On Sunday, he came wearing the best Darkseid costume that I’ve ever seen.
You always bow before Darkseid.
All in all it was a great weekend, and I can’t wait until next year. Keep checking back to hear the panels that I participated on.
