The cage door is unlocked and open and Paper Tigers is officially loosed into the world. It’s both nerve-wracking and exciting, but at this point, the story no longer belongs to me, only to readers. All I can do is continue working on the next novel and the next short story.
Early reviewers have called it “…deeply emotional and beautifully poetic” (Cemetery Dance) “…one of the best horror novels in recent memory” (Hellnotes), “…a gorgeous tapestry of pain from an author who specializes in just such intricate needlework.” (The Horror Fiction Review), and “…a smartly dark, deftly crafted journey into the depths of damaged humanity.” (Dread Central).
Paper Tigers is available in all the usual places, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books A Million, Book Depository, as well as directly from the publisher. Given that books are typically released on Tuesdays, you may not find it on physical bookstore shelves until tomorrow.
I’ll be the first to admit I’m not a very consistent blogger, but a few other things of note have happened since my last post that I should mention. Sing Me Your Scars was named Short Story Collection of the Year in the 2015 This is Horror Awards, and the title story, “Sing Me Your Scars” was nominated for a 2015 Bram Stoker Award, and I was thrilled and honored by both.
