Squishy Face and the Moon Release

Hello, folks!

I just wanted to let you know, I’m releasing a new book January 2nd and where you can order your copies. I hope you like this labor of love I dedicated to my daughter. It’s about science and a parent teaching their child. It was written when my daughter was a couple of years younger, but I still think the message resonates. A child’s first teacher is their parent.

I hope the illustrations are pleasing to the eye and enjoyable also. This is my first illustrated book. I took some time with the drawings because, as you know, authors, we don’t think we can until one day we just do. Again, I hope the kids enjoy them.

Here is the cover art and a little about the book below:

Squishy Face and the Moon_Cover 2

Here is where you can purchase your copy starting January 2nd:

Everett Holmes Sanctuary of the Damned by Erik Ekstrom is Coming Soon!

Well folks it’s Thursday, March 14, 2013, and guess what? I got a treat for you, as said in my ‘sing-song’ voice lol! Hope you enjoy it. It’s the next installment in the Everett Holmes series, gosh I love these books, so twisty, so turning, so absolutely scary at times…anyway, here you are, nice tasty morsel for you to nibble on before it comes up for release!



Everett Holmes Sanctuary of the Damned:


 E2_Print cover

In a day and age when the Mayan calendar is about to wind down, society is gripped in fear. Governments around the world begin to fail, rioting hits the streets as social unrest becomes even more apparent, and churches of all religions are forced into the responsibility of trying to hold it all together. As the end of the dreaded Mayan prophecy approaches and turmoil continues to ravage the globe, a man in Chicago has something even more important in mind…the killing of his next victim.


It has been ten years since we last saw Everett Holmes and much has changed in his life. For a decade he has been searching for his old friend turned serial killer, Max McQueen. No luck and very few clues have taken him around the globe in a dire search that has brought him to near madness. The trail is now cold as ice and Everett finds himself thrust into the modern era where crime still happens on a daily basis and psychos are blazing their own trails through history.


Everett has become a lone wolf, a recluse, a lost soul. It’s not until his trusted friend Tommy made Lieutenant and needed his help, that he was able to crawl through the darkness and into the light of reality once again. A rash of new murders has taken place and the killer, as any professional in his trade, has become exceptional in his craft. He has eluded law enforcement at every turn until they have no choice but to call in the very best, or at least a man who used to be.


Through his drug-induced haze, Everett begins to see the workings of a madman whose penchant for angels and lost souls are just as important as the manner in which the bodies are discovered. On the road to tracking the killer, Everett puts himself directly in the line of fire and hopes to find his own personal redemption in the process.



Okay, who wants to see the trailer? Yep link is right here, prepare yourself! With only a few days left, the wait is nearly over! YAY!




And more on this awesome development as it comes in! Hope to see you guys around the virtual water cooler, telling me you love this book as much as I do, really soon!!  Or you could just go tell Erik yourself, how much the book sparked terror or made you think, I’m sure he’d love to hear about it.

Christmas Promo Post #1

Hello folks, yes, Christmas is nearing, and what do we do for Christmas? We buy things. Of course we do. Yes, my nefarious purpose is to get you to buy more, LOL!

This year I decided to do things a little differently than the ones before it. I decided to get a little more organized about it. And since FB likes to tell us all we’re spamming ourselves lately I thought I would also do it this way.

I think what’s going to happen is, I’m going to gather a bunch of you who write in the same genre, gather your links here in a post and talk to the good folks about what you all are offering with your work.

I know it’s not much but, hey, thought I would give it a try anyway, for the sake of I guess getting into the spirit of things. If I do anything for musicians this year it will also be its own posting just for the music.

The first genre I’m going to do is by far my favorite, why you might ask? Because I write in it as well as read it all the time.

Close to and around Halloween there was an anthology put out by me, but there were also a few things by some of the other writers I know, before and after that time. I would like to get to them now so you all can see them. (Some of these were done in year’s past as well. The companies will still appreciate your business, as you may not have seen them last year. And I thank you for taking a look.)

Hellfire Publishing: A place to get an array of scary stuff! They actually have more than just for the gore-lovin’ zombie hatin’ killer in you…they have some romance, and they have a children’s book on their docket of works as well. http://www.hellfirepublishing.com/

Okay, and yes I’m plugging my stuff here too because I can’t honestly think of any more Horror/Dark Fantasy folks at the moment who I can name with something out the door for you to see and or purchase, may need to make small note to self * update post later, when your brain works! *

Here’s my author page where everything is neat and tidy for you:


Anyway, yes, there will be more posts with more companies and authors to go check out very soon! Merry Christmas early!
