I am pleased to announce a new upcoming novel, I Kill Monsters! This is the story of two twenty-something monster hunters, the Nowak brothers, and their adventures through the streets, sewers, and tunnels of New Avalon. I Kill Monsters is a new urban fantasy novel that will be available on February 3rd, 2015! Kindle preorders are coming soon!
I Kill Monsters
Mikkel and Szandor kill monsters. They're not government funded, they're not from a time-honored lineage of hunters, nor are they rich kids with lots of toys. They're two twenty-somethings brothers from the poor side of town who have taken it on themselves to rid the streets and underground of creatures who would prey on the innocent. Donning gas masks and using makeshift weaponry, they delve into the labyrinthine sewer system of New Avalon to grapple with snarling zombies, flesh-eating ghouls, insectoid hive creatures, and more. It's a dirty job and it rarely pays, but someone has to do it.
Hired by a woman from the rich side of town who believes she's being stalked by monsters, the two brothers think they've finally gotten an easy job that will pay well. But as they follow the clues, things are not adding up. Kidnappings, jackbooted commandos, and mysterious emails are just the beginning. Soon they found themselves involved in something bigger than monsters. It's anybody's guess whether they'll come through it alive, much less get paid.
I Kill Monsters is an exciting punk rock urban fantasy for those who enjoy their protagonists with a mouth on them and a weapon in their hands.

Two aging outlaws on the run after a botched robbery. They’re low on ammo and they’ve lost half their money.

When his partner is wounded, the outlaw is confronted with his past and the bargain he made so long ago.

Damned Lies is the true story of things that never happened. It is a fictional memoir of fantastic events. It is a chronicle of self-cloning, of adventure, of magic, of bare-fisted hobo boxing tournaments, of zombies, and more. It's the autobiography of a wild summer adventure out beyond the fields we know. It's the secret of what's hidden in a government bunker, it's the story of helping a nun with a crossbow hunt a vampire, it's the explanation of why you can't have that death ray you really wanted. It's a cautionary tale of just why cloning yourself is a really terrible idea.
Damned Lies is a big fish story for those who don't fish. It's a shaggy dog story for cat lovers. It's the scifi fantasy humor memoir we'll all wish we dictated on our deathbed. It's why we can't have nice things.
Damned Lies is just the first book in the Damned Lies series, a chronicle of fantastic adventures. It is followed by two sequels: Damned Lies Strike Back, the memoirs of the narrator's college years and his war with his homicidal clone's Lovecraftian cult, and Damned Lies of the Dead 3D, the memoir of Austin, Texas's zombie outbreak of 1995.
