Website updates for Johnny Scotch…

Spent some time today updating my site with some fresh images and with new links. Images to promote Johnny Scotch #3 are there and there will be more to come for sure. I also collected links for some of the reviews and interviews for Johnny Scotch over the past couple of years. Great links from my friends at Hold 322, The Art of Business,, and Written Sins.

I hope you will take some time to take a tour of the site and see what is going on in the Johnny Scotch universe.



New Horror Anthology Now Available…

This has been an exciting year of releases. From Tales From the Braided Pony, to Danger in Bass Clef, to Johnny Scotch #3, I am very lucky to have my voice out in the literary world. This week I get to celebrate yet another one of my short stories getting published.


This is the second anthology released by Mark Green and his company. I am excited to offer my fun short story, “Special Delivery” as part of this collection, just in time to add this to your October reading list.


What have I been up to?

What a crazy couple of weeks. The launch of “Danger in Bass Clef” has been going very well. Happy to say that we have pushed out our first 50 physical copies. Not monster numbers but for doing this all on my own I am very happy. Not to mention that we have had great reviews so far. Just waiting for more people to jump on board as the book gains momentum.

So where is Johnny Scotch the comic book? On its way!!! Dan Schaefer and I are gearing up to reveal the book in a couple weeks at Salt Lake Comic Con. I am so proud for how this one has come together. The marriage between my words and Dan’s artwork is amazing. I can’t wait to share this beautiful book with all of you.

Mostly what I have been up to besides clamoring to get the new comic done and printed is a lot of blog writing. Once it is official when my stuff will hit I will make an announcement as to where you can go to see me tackle some entertainment writing. Very fun stuff.

Looking forward to getting back to work on my new book though. I have to admit, as much as I have enjoyed throwing out a ton of content for this new blog I am eager to get some pages flying and back into the swing of things on the new project.

Whats next? Work will start on the fourth Johnny Scotch comic book soon after Salt Lake. I plan to have a new book ready for release in the next four months (knock on wood), and I will continue to promote “Danger in Bass Clef”, “Tales From the Braided Pony”, and the comics ad nausium.


Busy week of writing

Been doing a lot of promo lately for “Danger in Bass Clef”. Time to give an update on the other things that have been going on.

I have been cranking out a series of entertainment blogs for my friends over at Myth Machine. They should be going live in the next couple of weeks. Have not been doing this much binge watching and blogging but it has been great for my daily word count and helping me to hone my brevity. I never thought it would be so hard to punch out a review in a matter of 500 words. I have found it hard to keep it bellow 800 honestly but am starting to get better at finding a solid voice for them. I will keep everyone posted when those launch.

I have also started to shift my promo over to the upcoming release of the third Johnny Scotch comic which will be debuting at Salt Lake Comic Con in a little less than 3 weeks. Very excited for this one. Dan Schaefer’s art has really kicked it up for this issue and we are about to send something very special to the printers.

Of course, I am still putting out little promo shares regarding “Tales From the Braided Pony”. That book is special to me because not only do I have two stories in it, but it is the first thing I put out under someone else’s imprint. Chuck Anderson and Alucard Press have been awesome about this book and they have been pushing the hell out of it. So yay!

That’s it for now. Be sure to check out “Danger in Bass Clef” available through Amazon now!


Whats next?

Really pleased with how the promotion went with the “Tales From the Braided Pony” release this last weekend. We got some great reviews and a nice start to the sale of that crazy horror western anthology.

Although I am not done promoting “Tales”, I do need to now focus my efforts on the upcoming release of my debut novella, “Danger in Bass Clef”. So be prepared for a slew of blog posts with the latest trailer and all the quippy one liners I can come up with to help grab some attention for this book. I am very excited to share it with you all.

Today’s promotional offering:

Had Stephen King read Johnny Scotch, Danger in Bass Clef, I am sure he would have said it was a thrill ride for the ages. Danger in Bass Clef”, Due out August 17th on and at select stores. Johnny Scotch is…justice served neat. http://johnnyscotchjustice

Latest promo for “Tales From the Braided Pony”…

Don’t let me interrupt. “Tales From the Braided Pony” – Pick up your copy of the latest horror anthology installment from the twisted minds at Alucard Press. Available July 31st, 2017 at and Kindle.

Trailers experiment…

When I heard that “Tales From the Braided Pony” was going to be put together based on the world I created with my first horror short story, I was blown away. The next thing I thought about was a piece of music. I heard this retro spaghetti western theme with a crunchy distorted guitar underneath it. Sometimes the muse comes to you out of nowhere and there is nothing you can do but put it out there. So I wrote it down and offered to record it and put together a book trailer for C.S Anderson and the crew over at Alucard Press LLC.

It has done very nicely getting out there and helping to build the buzz with this book. Over 300 views in just around two weeks and going strong. Now to see how that translates to sales. 🙂

On the flip side, I have put together four trailers for “Danger in Bass Clef”, my debut novella that lands on August 13th. To put it lightly, the three that have been released have not received the same numbers so far. Oh well. I can chalk some of that up to the fact that this is a debut novel and I still don’t have the following or buzz generating that even a small publishing house has, but I will still keep this going.

The hope is that with the last two weeks of promo I will generate some solid buzz with the last trailer as well as the “Quotes” campaign that I will be launching during that time.

In the meantime, here is the link to the latest trailer for “Danger in Bass Clef”. I hope you will take a minute out of your day and check it out. Click it, like it, and share it. 🙂
