The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Writers post their thoughts on their blogs, talking about their doubts and the fears they have conquered. It's a chance for writers to commiserate and offer a word of encouragement to each other. Check out the group here.
What am I insecure about this month? My new book is coming out VERY soon. I'm frantically going through edits and putting finishing touches on the cover and blurb. Will it be ready in time? Will it be any good? Will anyone read it?
Your guess is as good as mine, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
I figure now is as good a time as any to officially release the cover for my second novel...
Still tweaking it a little to get the blood splatters just right, but you're looking at it in all it's gory glory. The photograph was taken by the awesome Jason from Salvatori Photography and captures just the right amount of cheekiness that I was going for.
So what is this bloody horror comedy about a beautiful lady about you ask? Here's the blurb:
* * *
Fitz is the broke, sad-sack night manager for a grubby comic book store. His only friend Dee is a narcissistic, womanizing drug-addict and professional wrestler. Together they are lowest, most pathetic losers on the face of the planet. Their lives cannot possibly get any worse.
And then they are implicated in the kidnapping of the prime minister’s wife.
On the run from the cops, Fitz and Dee discover there is something far worse than the RCMP stalking the dark streets of Toronto. They are being hunted by an ancient demon of unspeakable evil with an insatiable thirst for blood... and booze.
Life in prison might actually be much better than whatever the creepy hobo has in store for them...

So yeah, it's coming soon. If you visit this site or follow me on social media you'll hear lots about it in the next few weeks as I fine tune everything. Any comments or suggestions on the blurb are welcome!
Needless to say I'm excited but also stressed and anxious. Hope everyone else is having an equally eventful month! Now if you'll excuse me I have to get back to editing...
