The Finale of THE SEVEN: THE LABYRINTH, BOOK ONE

The woman, the boy, and the cat were the last living things beneath the city of the dead. On January 3rd, 2015, that sentence — which was an intentional follow-up to CITY OF THE DEAD — began a serialized novel called THE SEVEN (the first book in a heptalogy called THE LABYRINTH), which was featured for one dollar per month on a then-new website called Patreon. Here we are three years later and Patreon now accounts for roughly 49% of my annual income, and THE SEVEN is finished. The last chapter was posted today. Along the way, long-time readers have … Continue reading The Finale of THE SEVEN: THE LABYRINTH, BOOK ONE

Before and After: A State of the Keene Address

After the deaths of J.F. Gonzalez and Tom Piccirilli, it’s no secret I had what the old timers used to call a “nervous breakdown”. But I don’t call it that. I call it “drinking my way to the bottom of a whiskey bottle and staying there for over a year, and sinking into a very real and very heavy depression.” I say it’s no secret because I wrote a book about it. That book is called END OF THE ROAD and you can preorder it right here. Eventually, I sobered up, clawed my way out of that depression, and even … Continue reading Before and After: A State of the Keene Address
