"Possession is Nine-Tenths of the Law"  

I'm very excited to announce that my new Black Lands story, "Possession is Nine-Tenths of the Law," will be released this fall as a mini-eBook, called an eShort, by ChiZine Publications.

"Possession" features Jerry Baldwin, the huckster of haunted real estate from my Felix Renn novella "The Brick," as he attempts to help a couple whose daughter has been taken over by a creature from the Black Lands. Jerry employs his friend, Toronto PI Felix Renn, to assist him. Hilarity, and horror, ensues.

Not only is this my first story to focus on Jerry Baldwin, but it's also the first story to show Felix from a perspective other than first person. It made for a very unique writing experience, and I enjoyed seeing Felix from the point of view of other people.

I've read an excerpt from "Possession" at both the Toronto and Ottawa ChiSeries, as well as a reading in Peterborough where I live, and the reception has been very strong. I really think people are going to dig this one when it comes out this fall.

Currently reading: Freezer Burn, by Joe R. Lansdale
