Short Story Collection - Blood, Gridlock, & PEZ podcasted tales of horror

If all goes well, my first short story collection will be up on Amazon in trade paperback and as an ebook sometime in July. Its a collection of short stories that for the most part first aired on podcasts like the Drabblecast and Psuedopod. The lead tale is a coming of age story in which a geeky group of PEZ collectors finds themselves in a life and death struggle, caught between a traffic jam and a blood drenched ax. 

Now I know what you are asking yourself, what could Kevin possibly know about PEZ collecting? Great question, glad you asked. I collected the tiny candy dispensing toys for about seven years, even attended a few conventions. And in a completely unintentional show of synchronicity my entire PEZ collection is currently on display at the Temecula Public Library, and will be through July 16th. 

In other news, Dark Moon Books released their Young Adult edition of Dark Moon Digest with my story Mounting Fairies for Display, along with tales from Nancy Holder and Johnathan Maberry. The publisher told me that the issue premiered at the World Horror Convention in New Orleans a few weekends ago, and they sold out of every print copy in the first run. More are available on Amazon.
