I am very happy to announce that my new novelette, The Last Session: or, The Facts in the Case of Clarissa Collyer, is now out and available for purchase. This is my fourth project with Jordan Krall, Dunhams Manor Press, and Dynatox Ministries, and it has been every bit an awesome experience as the last three. As with all DMP chapbooks, this is a limited run, so when they are gone, they’re gone.
A few readers have been posting pics of their copies on Facebook, and that has really been making my days. Thank you so much, and I hope you all enjoy.
Clarissa Collyer is having problems growing up. Among the usual teenage problems of identity and independence, she also has to care for her mother, whose soul is stuck in her cancer-ridden body. A modern riffing on Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar,” this weird bildungsroman tale from Selena Chambers frays the threads between cutting the mortal coil and the umbilical cord.
$8 + S & H.

I just turned in proofs for THE TEMPORARY TOMB OF VIRGINIA POE, and here is a sneak peak of the cover.
If you missed the Poe Perk as part of the Dunhams Manor Press Indiegogo campaign, it is now available as a donation incentive at the Dynatox Ministries store.
All proceeds go solely to funding the next few years of Dunhams Manor Press awesomeness, which means writers get paid, artists get paid, and strange and bizarre content is made.
This is an unpublished poem about the weird circumstances of Virginia Poe’s current grave. It is the predecessor of “Of Parallel and Parcel,” and was “typeset” by my Lamy Safari Fountain Pen and Selectric II. It was a fun process, and I hope to share some behind-the-scenes of that down the road. But for now, I hope those who receive it enjoy it.
Just like the campaign, the number of issues as well as availability time are limited, so buy now or never. I hope you’ll buy now (please!).
