The final step before the process is out of our hands: the bluelines for Robert McCammon’s incredible new novel, The Listener, have been reviewed at the Cemetery Dance Publications office and the printer has been given the green light to roll:
You can find me on Instagram where I’m posting more shots from the Cemetery Dance Publications office from time to time (production materials, new books, scenes from the warehouse, etc) plus other photos from my day-to-day life that I just happen to like (old abandoned stuff, my cats, my dogs, etc).
I also post on Facebook and Twitter when I can, although not always the same content.
I’m not really “good” at keeping up with any of the social media accounts, but I try!
Given how hectic this time of year is, I thought I’d better post a reminder that TODAY is your very last day to sign-up over at my Patreon page to qualify for some of the BIG REWARDS that launch in January!
This includes your very last chance to qualify for “One Candle Against the Night: The River Town,” an exclusive chapbook for my supporters at the $5 or higher Rewards Levels.
If you haven’t checked out the rewards I’m offering on my Patreon page I hope you’ll swing by right now. I’d love to see you there!

This isn’t officially announced yet, but next year Cemetery Dance Publications will be publishing a signed Limited Edition hardcover of Kealan Patrick Burke’s incredible novella, SOUR CANDY, and I thought it might be fun to show off the signature sheets now since this is such a cool looking book:
One Candle Against the Night is a novel I’ve been thinking about writing for a very long time, so the challenge of writing and publishing the story as a serial chapbook series for my supporters on Patreon seems like the perfect way to make sure this book finally gets written.
That’s why, in January, I’ll be printing “One Candle Against the Night: The River Town” as an exclusive chapbook for my Patreon supporters at the $5 or higher Rewards Levels.
This is the first section of the novel, and from there the story will continue until the protagonist either makes it home to his family or dies trying. I’m honestly not sure which will happen, but I hope you’ll join me over on Patreon to find out!
About “The River Town” Chapbook:
Stephen Smith is a haunted man, a photographer who has documented the worst humanity has to offer.
While traveling with his fellow journalists and their United Nations escorts into a war zone known as Los Manos del Diablo, Stephen is accidentally left behind when he tries to help a stricken young refugee no one else saw.
She’s standing on a landmine and Stephen has neither the skills nor the necessary time to save her, so he will have to make a choice: try something insanely risky, something that might not even work and could kill him, too–or simply start the long journey home, leaving the girl behind to meet her fate alone.
But even if he escapes the river town alive, there are many dangers on the road ahead…
A lot of people in the writing business have been telling me I really need a pop-up window on my website that begs visitors to sign-up for my mailing list… but no… just no…
I can’t stand those ads, especially when I can’t seem to close them on my phone, and I never sign-up for the newsletters they’re promoting.
I mean, why would I sign-up for someone’s newsletter when I’m literally visiting their site for the very first time to find out who they are or what their book is about? I get enough email as it is!
Now, I will sign up for your newsletter after I read something of yours I like OR if I’m intrigued by what you’re doing/working on.
So nope. If you’re on my site and want to subscribe to my newsletter, the sign-up box is around here somewhere. I’d love to see you on the mailing list, but I won’t be forcing a pop-up window into your face to get you there.
If NOT having that newsletter sign-up pop-up window on my site ends up being the ONE reason I never break through to the next level, I guess it sucks to be me because it’s just not happening!
