Good evening, one and all.

Yes, so Hourglass #2 is out, and I’m very excited! Check out that cover. Nice, right? But forget my excitement for the moment. More importantly, I hope a few readers out there are excited to see what’s next in store for Clyde, Kev, Rose and Ace. What I can say without getting too spoilery, is that the team (and the readers) are in for plenty of malevolent mayhem, new lethal enemies of the paranormal sleeper agent variety, and a dangerous union between the Cairnwood Society and the local NYC crime lord. And I’ve barely scratched the surface.

DISCLAIMER: Technically the book is already on Amazon, but because there are a few authors rocking my pseudonym (awkward, am i right?), I’m waiting for Amazon to link the title to my account page. But this should be resolved by tomorrow, or Friday at the absolute latest.


The life of Clyde Williams had certainly taken a detour these last months. Turning from aspiring comic book artist to low-ranted Level 1 necromancer. He saw things. Fought things. He killed, and even took a trip to the dead realm of Erebus.

And now he’s official, an agent of the paranormal intelligence department Hourglass, and posted to New York’s Madhouse facility with the ghost of his best friend and their seasoned team.

And they have their work cut out for them. Local Hourglass assets are being targeted by a lethal, horrifically-enhanced killer called The Hangman, the first weapon in a new campaign of terror being waged against Hourglass. But he won’t be the last. The Cairnwood Society is producing more of these monstrous madmen, and it’s up to Clyde and his team to find out their dark methods, and shut them down before Cairnwood can amass an army of nightmare killers to launch against Hourglass, and the world.

I’m also planning to give away 10 FREE paperbacks via a Goodreads Giveaway promo (only US readers will be eligible I’m afraid). I’ll be sure to update you when this goes ahead.

Thanks for reading!
