It’s true. I’m done writing philosophical books for now. I’ve got no plans to publish anything else like this weird little thing. And I’m pretty much out of horror ideas. So it’s like this. I’m getting back to my roots. It’s time for more darkness, more shadows, and more end-of-the-universe type books. It’s my bread and butter. It’s […]

So I decided to challenge myself. I wanted to create something using several different art styles. In this case, I desired pencils, inks, watercolors, and acrylics. Turns out I was enjoying the lull between writing two books when I the idea hit me, and so I had more time than usual to work on painting. …and thus was […]

Hey there. I decided to plunk down in my kitchen late one night and make a little video about my books, Hollow Empire and Darkness Between the Stars. …while pounding some Balvenie 21-year scotch.
