Artificial Intelligence Interviews the Author, Coherence Ensues

Mark Coker at Smashwords has developed  an innovative way to interview authors and he invited me to participate.

Well, he invited everyone participate. I just happened to be one of the folks who agreed to it.

So, this is my interview. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

Dead Vault: An Arclight Adams Thriller

Dead Vault is now available anywhere.
Arclight's in trouble. Out of work and out of time, he's losing his own mind in search of someone else's.

That's the good news.

It seems that dementia isn't the only thing in North Tree that is in the business of swallowing hearts. When Arc goes down, he goes down hard.

Make it to the end, and realize why the question really isn't:

Will Arc Adams survive the dead vault?
...but, will he want to?

My latest book, a pulpy little novel about the search for a missing woman, is now available at Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Kobo, or pretty much anywhere else you care to look.

On the Anniversary of the Sinking of the RMS Titanic - Tales of the Haunted Titanic

Tales of the Haunted Titanic - Available Everywhere
A memorial.

A relic.

The greatest ocean liner to sail the Atlantic.

The true treasures of the RMS Titanic: passengers and crew, victims and survivors, trapped in that brief moment when the world's tallest building, its most luxurious hotel, and its grandest expression of wealth could walk on water.

In 100 years, the RMS Titanic has only gotten bigger. But there is a forgotten treasure of the Titanic, a spirit, a precious memory that was ignored, and then lost. But out of the icy darkness, it returns. And with it, so do her ghosts.

Collecting a half dozen stories of the uncanny, the improbable and the unreal, Tales of the Haunted Titanic shares the ghostly alternate history of the Unsinkable and the Unthinkable.

Some stories include: A mystery surrounds the funeral of one of the survivors, and the only clue is provided by one of the victims. As a talented embalmer begins to draw bodies from the deep, a body draws him into the depths. One survivor is unaccounted for: a song which outlives its performers. A bankrupt aristocrat follows a dark trail of revenge to Boiler Room Number 6. A giant of the deep rouses from a ghostly slumber, taking a chance to make history at history's end.

Collecting: Titanic Rising, On Jack Thayer's Watch, The Autumn Ice of Springtime, The Unsinkable Supernatant, Pronouncing the Mackay-Bennett, and Introducing: The Giant, Ben Guggenheim, a new story exclusive to Tales of the Haunted Titanic.

Available anywhere books are sold, digital or print.

The Publications Gather...

For those of you keeping score at home, I've been in the basement, mixing up some medicine, and some strange stuff is periodically leaking out...

[At this rate, about one new thing goes up per week, sometimes faster than that. Anthologies and novels to come.]
