Not Dead Yet...

It looks like Hell Awaits isn't dead yet! 

A few years ago I wrote a vampire book. It was fun to write but it was a bloody mess. Now, I've combined this story with the project I wrote for the James Patterson Masterclass, to create a whole new, gritty crime story. I've brought the story into the modern era and removed the vampire elements. 

The story has changed but the title stays the same. 

While I haven't been sharing much info, I've also been working on my Hispanic, female P.I. novel and a horror anthology comic, called Brutal Planet. We'd like to have a Halloween 2018 release date, but this is purely a passion project. There is no hard deadline or pressure. 

There is still no word on any of my other projects (TERMS, Run Straight Down) I've had to postpone. Stay tuned for more details on these project, Rudo Can't Fail, and more!

Beer, Boomer and Books!

It has been five months since my last update. Sadly, there isn't much to report. I've taken a new job as the assistant manager at The Vincennes Brewing Company. The Brewery is the coolest place in town, but between the brewery and a new baby, there isn't much time for writing.

I've been able to get a little bit of work done, mostly for Rudo Can't Fail. However, I've also finished a couple new short stories I'll be submitting soon. The Halloween season also means getting into the TERMS mindset. I hope to be able to get the re-writes and edits on TERMS finished by the end of the year. Once that's finished I can focus on crime fiction trilogy.

Since my last update, I've shared an article Boomer Magazine did about me. I'll include the pictures of that article below. This article is the first interview that I mentioned my desire to write crime trilogy, and that I already have two of the three books nearly finished.

You can read the article online here.

I still have copies of this issue of Boomer, if anyone is interested. I also have a limited number of Eclectic Collection, Fracas: A Collection of Short Friction, Happy Hour Blues, and Rudo Can't Fail issue 18. I can be reached through Facebook and Twitter (via the links on the right) for a personalized copy of any of these titles.  

Happy Reading!

Goodbye To A Legend

 Chavo Guerrero Sr. January 7, 1949 - February 11, 2017

Today I'm heartbroken to hear about the passing of Chavo Guerrero Sr. My condolences go out to Chavor Jr. and the entire Guerrero family.


In the world of lucha libre the connection to Japanese wrestling is undeniable. Men and women have battled from the land of the rising sun to south of the board, delighting fans with their skills and unforgettable characters. Arguable one of the most successful men that have helped build this connection is Chavo Guerrero. Chavo had many ring wars over the NWA International Junior Heavyweight Championship in the U.S., Mexico, and Japan.

In 1982 Guerrero defeanded his title against former champion, Atsushi Onita. This is the match that made me a Chavo Classic fan. 

(Taken from my column in the newest issue of Rudo Can't Fail.)


The Legend of Chavo Guerrero - The Mountain Goats

"Today the world lost a true rebel. He did things "HIS" way. Not always right, not always wrong, but He always followed what he believed in. He was diagnosed with Liver Cancer in early January of this year. As believer in Christ Jesus, he is now in Paradise. Today is a Sad day in the Guerrero Family. Rest In Peace Chavo "Classic" Guerrero Sr." - Chavo Guerrero Jr, via Instagram

Update & A Baby

October was a busy month. Things have been a little crazy. I had a birthday, we moved, and I've neglected my website again. However, the biggest news is that we welcomed Baby Briar into the world!

Briar Lucinda Love Grundon - 7lbs 11oz
Oct. 13th, 2016

It was nice to have us all together when we took Briar home from the hospital. We are all moved into our new place. We still have a little work to do on the house, but we won't be staying long. We still have our hearts set on moving out of Indiana as soon as possible. 


Meanwhile, I have officially announced (via Twitter and Facebook) that I've started rewrites on the book incarnation of TERMS. After talking with Joshua Hull, Mike Dobrzelcki, and two different publishers, we've decided that it's time to get this book out. Stay tuned for more details!

Now that things are settling down I'm ready to get into some serious writing.
