A New Book and a Chance to Be Killed

So my new book, Chaos, is now available from Thunderstorm Books, and I am delighted:

From the author of the Hollower Trilogy and Thrall comes a terrifying new novel of madness and horror….

The Bridgewood Estates apartments are clean, modern and new—the perfect place for Myrinda and her boyfriend Derek to start a new life together. But the apartments have an extra feature not advertised—they’re built on a gateway to another world, an abyss of chaos from which horrific monsters known as the chaotic ones have come to spread their insanity sickness. As the tenants of Bridgewood descend into lunacy, unthinkable acts and violent deaths accumulate around Myrinda and Derek. They’ll have to fight Myrinda’s own growing madness or succumb to the whims of the chaotic ones.

This book is rather special to me as it marks a certain milestone, I think, in my writing. I understand from Paul that the bulk of the copies have sold already, but there are still several copies available for purchase.

In honor of the release of Chaos, I’m holding a drawing to have five of you killed. In loving, carefully-crafted prose, of course. Everyone who has bought or buys a copy of Chaos at any point during today through the end of Friday, August 30th, will be entered into a drawing to have his or her name used as a victim character in my next Thunderstorm book. Five winners will be chosen at random from the list of purchasers.

If you would like to enter for a chance to win your name immortalized as a victim of some nasty other dimensional monster, click here and pick up one of the last few copies left!

As always, thanks to all who picked up a copy. I sincerely hope you enjoy this one.

HOLLOWER Books Almost Sold Out!

Thunderstorm Books reports that there are only two remaining copies of the Hard Rain ($35) version of The Triumvirate left, so if you were waiting on picking up a copy, now would be the time to move on it.  Also, there are only two complete matching sets of The Hollower Trilogy (this includes The Hollower, Found You, and The Triumvirate).  You can contact Paul Goblirsch and make him an offer on these if you want to get them before they’re gone.  He also has a couple of “broken” sets or individual books available — this may be your last chance to match up your books.

Available and Upcoming Work 2012

*Updated

For those in need of a handy reference or curious about trying my work out, books of mine currently available (in varying quantities) are as follows:

 

I think filming for the short movie of “Goth & Crow” based on my short story of the same name should be starting toward the end of this year.  Details to follow.  Also, the short film of “Letting Go” is being worked on as well.

Thrall is currently available for Kindle for only $4.99. In about two months, the audio book will be available as well for $19.77 (pre-orders available now). Although there are no solid plans at present for a paperback version of this book, I’m looking into options.

For Emmy is currently available for Kindle. Hard cover versions are sold out, but I’ll have paperback copies on hand to sign and sell at upcoming conventions and appearances (please see Appearances page for details). Copies are limited.

My first two books, The Hollower and Found You, are available in limited edition, signed hard covers. There are very few of these left, but I understand a few copies do still remain. These are part of a set which will include The Triumvirate. There should be news sometime later this year regarding an audio book version of The Hollower.

The Triumvirate Supercell edition has shipped, completing the Hollower Trilogy. For those who already have the first two books and just want to read this new one, The Triumvirate will also be available as part of Thunderstorm Books’ Hard Rain Series, due to ship in the next two weeks or so.

I am currently working on a long story titled “Anathema,” which will be available as a chapbook later this year. Details to follow.  I am also working on a new novel which I think you’ll enjoy, and a rare non-supernatural short story as well.  Keeping busy.  It’s horror writer hands that are the devil’s playground…. 😉

News Regarding THE TRIUMVIRATE and THRALL

For those of you who already have The Hollower and Found You and are looking for a nice but economical edition of The Triumvirate to pick up, Thunderstorm Books is shipping copies of the Hard Rain edition at the end of this week.  There are a handful of the Collector Sets left as well, if you’re still interested in picking up the Hollower Trilogy books all together.  Paul G. will match the numbers in the set for you.  It may be a while before any of these three books appears in any other format, especially The Triumvirate, so I’d at least recommend picking up the Hard Rain version.

The audiobook version of Thrall has been completed and is the queue for release (I believe in June).  From the sampling of Chapter 1 I heard, it’s going to sound great.  Amazon is accepting pre-orders now at a nice discount for $19.77.

TRIUMVIRATE Now Shipping and Mo*Con Appearance Reminder

The Supercell version of The Triumvirate arrived in the mail today, and has begun shipping to customers. I understand there are a limited number left, and we anticipate they will sell out, so if you’re planning on grabbing a copy, I wouldn’t wait too long. If you’re holding off for the Hard Rain version, those should begin shipping, I believe, in another 2-4 weeks.  Ordering information for both versions should be available on the Thunderstorm website by Monday.

For those of you in Indiana, near Indiana, not near Indiana but with disposable travel income, or up for a good ol’ fashioned American road trip, I’ll be one of the Guests of Honor this weekend at Mo*Con.  In addition to copies of For Emmy that I will have on hand to sign, I will also have a very limited number of some rare/hard-to-find books and stories of mine.   So come on out if you can make it!  I’d love to see you.

What’s Available and What’s Coming Soon

For those in need of a handy reference or curious about trying my work out, books of mine currently available (in varying quantities) are as follows:


Thrall

For Emmy
is currently available for Kindle.  Hard cover versions are sold out, but for those attending Mo*Con in two weeks, Necon in July, or Killercon in September, I’ll have paperback copies on hand to sign and sell.  Copies are limited.

 

My first two books, The Hollower and Found You, are available in limited edition, signed hard covers. There are very few of these left, but I understand a few copies do still remain.  These are part of a set which will include The Triumvirate.  There should be news sometime later this year regarding an audio book version of The Hollower.

New Reviews of FOR EMMY

Peter Schwotzer of Literary Mayhem was kind enough to post his review of For Emmy, in which he says:

“For Emmy” will leave its mark on you long after you put it down. Mary has this uncanny ability to draw you into her stories with life like characters and haunting prose….. she is one of the best in the business and “For Emmy” is one of the best stories I’ve read this year.”

If you’d like to check out the rest of the review, you can find it over at Literary Mayhem or at Famous Monsters of Filmland.

HOLLOWER and FOUND YOU Almost Gone!

I just wanted to let folks know that Thunderstorm Books is down to single digit numbers of copies left in the Hollower Collectors’ Set (Supercell Series) copies of The Hollower and Found You.  If you want to pick up copies, now is the time.

Also, as a reminder, if you’re looking to pick up only the third book in the trilogy, The Triumvirate, it should be available late June/early July as a part of the Hard Rain series.  This book ties in Thrall and For Emmy, as well as wrapping up the Hollower stories and explaining a good deal of background about the Hollowers as well as a number of other monsters in Bloomwood County, NJ, both past and forthcoming.

FOUND YOU Available NOW From Thunderstorm Books!

The Hollower Trilogy continues!
The beautifully re-released signed hard cover of the trilogy’s second book, Found You, is in stock and now available through Thunderstorm Books’ Supercell Series. This edition is limited to 85 copies. Since these books were designed to be a complete set with cover art that creates one large, gorgeous piece of art, in purchasing this, you’re automatically reserved to purchase the new, never-before-published third book, The Triumvirate, in July, so you’re guaranteed a complete set! (Those who wish to purchase only The Triumvirate can do so as part of the Hard Rain series.)  If you purchased a copy of The Hollower already, please indicate the number on the book you received so that Thunderstorm can send you matching numbers.

If you liked the original Hollower series or if you’re interested in trying it for the first time, now is the time to get these books.  I understand there are only a dozen or so copies left of The Hollower, and they are expected to see fast.  They are the author’s preferred text versions, with incredible cover art by David Ho, and newly included author’s notes about each book.
