Everything's Coming Up Ryker!

When Greg Gifune contacted me round the first of the year about submitting something to Darkfuse, I was ecstatic. I danced around my house in quite an undignified manner (la-di-da!). But then began the months-long  torture of not being able to broadcast my good news, for fear of it falling through.

This last torturous episode was thankfully much shorter, and the news even better. I just signed a 6 book deal with Darkfuse / Delirium. Besides The Hoard, due out in November, they’ll be publishing a novel and novella of mine in 2013, 2014 and 2015.

Every writer has different goals, and different paths to reach those goals. I accomplished one of my biggest goals when I signed the first, one-book contract with Darkfuse, but I still had anxieties regarding my writing career. Now I’m going to be able to take the time I need to write, and I’m going to have at least 7 opportunities to get my work in front of a lot of horror fans. For the first time I can remember, I have no anxieties about the future of my fiction.

Now all I have to do is write it.

Oh God…

I’m hoping to start updating again soon. But until then, I wanna mention a really quality low-budget horror movie that just got added to Netflix Instant: Absentia. It’s smart, subtle, twisting, and most importantly creepy. Check it out. I did a bit of research on it and found that it was funded through kickstarter. I also found this hilarious fundraising video:
