My Novel Is Out!

Hey! My novel In the Belly of the Beast is live as an ebook on Amazon. It'll be free for everyone on September 27th, but it's also free now as part of the Kindle Unlimited program. If you don't want to wait until the 27th, or don't have KU, it's $4.99 for now, but I’ve been told the price might go up to $7 or so in a month or two. They're putting final touches to the print edition now, so that will hopefully be available shortly.

And if you like the book, please help spread the word by leaving a good review on Amazon. They really do help. And tell all your friends! (And if you hate the book, tell all your enemies!).

In the Belly of the Beast is inspired by the works of H. P. Lovecraft and the epic tabletop game Cthulhu Wars, published by Petersen Games. It is a post-apocalyptic tale of humans fighting to survive in a world ravaged by malign alien gods and monsters

The novel tells the story of a small group of human survivors trying to find a safe haven amidst the ruins of civilization. While traveling through a treacherous mountain pass, they find themselves caught between rival cults, and discover there are worse things in the cold places of the world than frostbite.
