Old Ghosts are e-Haunting, Nominating

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on January 16, 2012 by nikkorpon

Just got some super exciting news. My Baltimore noir novella, Old Ghosts, has been nominated for a Spinetingler award for best novella. I’m wicked flattered to be included with writers like Tom Piccirilli, Ray Banks, Fingers Murphy, Gerard Brennan, Nigel Bird, Chuck Wendig and a whole bunch of other heads. Voting runs from now until the end of the month.

If you haven’t read Old Ghosts, and want to try out your new Kindle, Snubnose Press just released the e-version of Old Ghosts. They’ve been putting out a steady stream of top-notch crime fiction for the last year and I’m very happy to be among such a great crowd. Also exciting is that they’re using one of the alternate covers Boden Steiner designed for the print release. I love the giallo-inspired look and am glad it’ll finally see the light of day. If you fancy popping up a quick review over at Amazon, I know they’d be very appreciative.

Godspeed

STAY GOD is the LitReactor Book Club pick!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 13, 2011 by nikkorpon

I’m super stoked to say that Stay God will be the inaugural pick for the LitReactor Book Club, discussion starting 1 November. If you haven’t checked out LitReactor yet, well, why the hell haven’t you? It’s technically an offshoot of The Cult, Chuck Palahniuk’s website, but it’s so much more. Take all of the writer material, mix it with literary analysis, books geeks and comma nerds and you’re starting to get the idea. Basically, it’s a writer’s wet dream (see: Keith Rawson’s interview with Daniel Woodrell.) They’re doing great things over there and they’re just getting started.

Suffice it to say: I’m stoked. Thanks to Pete Goutis and Charles King for the support.

In the meantime, you can pick up a copy of Stay God in print, in Kindle format, or other e-formats.

Aside from that, I’m also wicked excited to finally have the print copy of my new novella, By the Nails of the Warpriest, in my over-caffeinated little hands. Print copies are available here, and e-formats here. They should be available in the UK soon, so says the publisher. Pretty much, once Amazon gets off its ass and does it.

Speaking of e-books and being super excited, have you seen the line-up for Blasted Heath yet? BH is the brainchild of Allan Guthrie and Kyle MacRae and will launch on 1 November with new books from Anthony Neil Smith, Ray Banks, Douglas Lindsay, and debuts by Gary Carson and Brian Pendreigh. Yeah. Exactly. Do yourself a favor and go have a look.

More when I think of it.

Godspeed
Nik
