Itís been ages since Iíve updated this page. In part, thatís because I wanted people to be able to read about Empty Rooms on the front page, and in part itís because Iíve been busy with other stuff.
What other stuff? Primarily a novel called 7 SYKOS, which I wrote with partner Marsheila (Marcy) Rockwell, which weíve just turned in to our editor at HarperCollins. Itís scheduled for release on January 26, 2016. Although itís billed as science fiction, we think of it as a contemporary or near-future thriller with elements of scientific extrapolation (in the realm of neuroscience) and even horror. In other words, itís fast-paced, scary, and fun.
Here are a few places you can preorder it, so youíll know that youíll get it as soon as itís released:
Barnes & Noble
More details, and cover art, when I get Ďem!
In other book news, hereís a book that I didnít writeómy pal Jonathan Maberry didóbut itís connected to a book I did write. Deadlands: Ghostwalkers is the first full-length novel based on the hugely popular Weird Western RPG Deadlands, and itís coming out from Tor Books in September. My bookóthe second Deadlands novelóis called Deadlands: Thunder Moon Rising, and itíll be out in 2016.
Even sooner, thereís some comic book work on the way. On September 3, a trade paperback collection of comic book stories featuring everybody's favorite TV helicopter, Airwolf Airstrikes, hits the stands. My story, "Eye in the Sky," kicks off the collection. And on October 7th, another collaboration with Marcy (and her first published comics work!), our comic book story "Scream Queen," appears in the collection Evil Dead 2: Tales of the Ex Mortis, also available from comic book retailers everywhere.
Marcy and I also have more short stories on the way. Next up, I think, is ďLetting Go the GhostsĒ in the Occupied Earth anthology.
As for Empty Rooms, itís still out there, still picking up wonderful reviews like this one (scroll down) from Mystery Scene magazine, which says, in part, ďIn Jeffrey J. Mariotteís gripping Empty Rooms, a cop and an ex-cop pair up to examine the cold case of Angela Morton, an 11-year-old girl who went missing from her Detroit neighborhood 13 years earlierÖ This is not a book for the timid or easily shocked: the theme of violence against children is rough stuff. Despite this, Empty Rooms remains a highly recommended read.Ē
You can buy it at:
Indiebound (pick an independent bookstore near you, or one you like)
Barnes & Noble
If you havenít bought it yet, you really should.
Thanks for reading!
