The Vicious Circuit Series is done!

The final book in the Vicious Circuit series, Kill All Angels, came out today! Buy it wherever quality books are sold. Or just books in general. Kill All Angels is not super discerning about the company it keeps.

If you’re not in the know:

The Vicious Circuit series is a punk rock fantasy epic that starts with The Unnoticeables, continues with The Empty Ones, and concludes with Kill All Angels. Drunkenly swerving between horror, sci-fi, and fantasy, this the story of Carey, a young punk rocker in 1970s New York City, and Kaitlyn, an aspiring stuntwoman in modern day Los Angeles. The only thing these two have in common is the strange turn both of their lives have suddenly taken: Now, in addition to beer runs and casting calls, they have to deal with a series of mysterious disappearances, a sinister cult, what might be angels, and what are certainly demons. The invisible machines that run the universe have been hijacked, the very essence of life has been distilled into fuel, and the only ones who can stop it both tried to call in hungover today. If you’re not a praying person, now would be a good time to start.

The Unnoticeables Launch Party!

My new novel is finally being released! Come on down to the covered patio area of the White Owl Social Club (1305 SE 8th Ave, Portland, OR 97214) on July 7th at 7PM and celebrate with me. For years it felt like this day would never come, and now it feels like it’s right around the corner. Oh god, one day we’ll all be 80 and wondering where the years went. I’m going to buy a convertible and take up skydiving. Come, defy the unceasing forward march of time with me. They serve fine burgers and liquor — the absolute best tools for denying your own inevitable mortality.

Pre-order The Unnoticeables, Get Rx free!

Hey there, dear reader.

I know you super well.

Right now you’re thinking:

“Man, I really want to read a book about ominous angels, killer former-teen heart throbs, drunken punk rockers, acidic tar monsters, and the hidden code that governs the universe — but I also want to read a book about a dystopian future society located entirely within one gigantic skyscraper that is addicted to hallucinogenic time traveling gas. And if, at some point, Abraham Lincoln fights a dinosaur, well, that would be just dandy. The problem here is that I only have enough money for one of those books!”

Well, that just won’t do. It’s a well established medical fact that the brain needs both urban fantasy sci-fi/horror and pharmaceutical cyberpunk fiction just to stay alive. I don’t want you to die, dear reader. So I’ll make you a deal: You pre-order a copy of my upcoming urban fantasty book about faceless cults and the punks that hate them, The Unnoticeables, and I’ll throw in an eBook copy of my last book, the cyberpunk misadventure Rx: A Tale of Electronegativity for free!

Here’s the rules:

Pre-order a copy of The Unnoticeables (any version you’d like)
Take a screenshot of the receipt
Email that to
I’ll email you back an eBook copy of Rx: A Tale of Electronegativity
Then you do an adorable little excited dance*


Remember: This only applies to pre-orders, so you have until July 6th, the day before launch, to get on this.
