It is with great pleasure that I announce my next book, He Stepped Through.


One gray morning, the words appear everywhere: on the lips of the men shooting up an inner city burger joint, scrawled across a bloody crime scene, and written on the wall of the only occupied apartment in a downtown slum. In the space of a single day, they infect Los Angeles.

Crooked detective Walker wants to know what the words mean. Officer Megan Ricks can’t get the words out of her head. Gangbanger 2Bit wants to get as far away from the words as possible.

But the words can’t be escaped. They’re written in violence, and they promise terror. When their meaning becomes clear, no one will be safe.

This little powerhouse of a book is number 3 in Bloodletting Press’ Novelette Series and features a cover by Zach McCain.  It’s also one of the best things I’ve written.  Due out in February 2010, you can order it as one of 250 signed and numbered paperbacks or as one of 52 cloth bound and slipcased hardbacks.
