New Member, Introducing Myself . . . .

Hello, everyone. I just joined, thought I'd take a moment to introduce myself . . . .

My name is James, and I've been a huge fan of horror since the age of four, when my father took my to the drive-in theater to see The Incredible Melting Man. A few of my favorite movies include: the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, John Carpenter's The Thing, Se7en, The Exorcist, The Exorcist III: Legion, David Cronenberg's The Fly, Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978), Audition, Uzumaki, Psycho (original), and Requiem For a Dream.

In addition to being a fan of horror movies, I'm also a voracious reader of horror/suspense, as well as a writer. My published books include Midnight Rain, The Wicked, and Night of the Loving Dead, with two more -- Animosity and The Forum (about a message board for serial killers! ) --on the way later this year. My first short-story collection, People Are Strange, comes out next week, and I'm proud to announce that the film rights to my novel Animosity were recently optioned . . . wish me luck!

I guess that's it for now! Thanks for listening, and I hope I didn't put anyone to sleep!

Hey James, I'm new here too. Great choice in movies. Your books sound really interesting, are they available in any bookstore or are they special order. I'd love a good read.

Thanks, man! And I appreciate your interest in my work! Most of my stuff has been published in the small press so far; unfortunately, my one mass-market novel, MIDNIGHT RAIN, is now Out of Print. However, you can usually find copies ultra-cheap (as low as just a few cents) on places like Half.com, and Amazon.com (Used).

My first short-story collection, PEOPLE ARE STRANGE, comes out this week. You can pick up a copy of the Signed, Limited trade paperback by clicking this very link, if you're interested . . . .

Also, here's the pre-order site for my upcoming novella, THE FORUM . . . .

Or, if you'd prefer to try my work before you buy, you can read an excerpt from my next novel, ANIMOSITY, right here or check out a cool sneak peek at my current novel-in-progress, UGLY AS SIN, here.

Whew . . . sorry for the commercial.

Thanks again! Please let me know what you think, if you do decide to take a chance on my work.
