THE NEW GOD (Coming April, 2014 from DarkFuse)

I'm pleased to announce I've sold a 35,000 word novella, entitled The New God to DarkFuse. Tis slotted for an April 2014 release in both signed, limited hardcover and ebook.

Synopsis follows below:

Autumn, 1989.

Troubled teen Greg Bryce has just gone away to college, and a man he has never met has started mailing him letters. Letters proclaiming Greg is the new messiah. Letters providing detailed instructions on how to proceed, step by deranged step, through the Sevenfold Path to Godhood to assume his throne. Greg will learn to create life, transform it, and bend the very essence of reality to his will.

But Greg's mind is bending, too, because godhood offers a license to sadistically punish those who don't believe in him.

When his spiritual path becomes a trail of mutilation, he flees and the multistate manhunt is on. Is Greg Bryce driven by divinity or insanity? Have the letters (and their mysterious author) made him a new god, or a new devil?

Re: THE NEW GOD (Coming April, 2014 from DarkFuse)

Two new interviews in which I talk about a few forthcoming projects (The New God and The Choir of Beasts).

Interview #1: Over at the Black Static website, Peter Tennant interviewed me. (Just posted this morning)

Interview #2: Mike Davis of the Lovecraft eZine interviewed me last evening. Herr Pulver was also in attendance. We talked about The New God, The Choir of Beasts, and my contribution to The Grimscribe's Puppets, "The Company Town". The interview has also been preserved for posterity on Ye Olde YouTube, so take a gander if you're so inclined. (Spoiler Alert: I disclosed far too much about "The Company Town" so if you don't want the story "spoiled" skip over the section of the video starting at the 34:15 point and continuing until the 35:30 mark. The rest of the interview is spoiler-free).

Re: THE NEW GOD (Coming April, 2014 from DarkFuse)

I've attached Zach McCain's cover art to this post (ain't it a beaut?)

Also note the change in the title (it's now I Am the New God).

Synopsis:

Only a few in the world know the real truth about what happened more than two decades ago. While religions continue to covet their chosen deities, the gods we once worshipped were destroyed in the fall of 1989.

In their place, a troubled teenager named Greg Bryce assumed control—and he’s been presiding over and judging humanity ever since.
This is the tale of what happened before the world as we knew it came to an end, how Greg was driven by truth and lies, divinity and insanity, punishment and mercy, resurrection and murder, to assume his rightful place as The New God.


Advance Praise:


“Audacious, original and gleefully offensive, a broadside against the entire notion of divinity, with an ending you’ll never see coming. Nicole Cushing is somebody to watch.” —Jack Ketchum
