A Publishing Announcement and A Watty Award

A while back I started writing about two elderly men who set off on a Sam and Dean Winchester-style hunting adventure. I gave Richard, the more ornery of the two, a fantastically colorful vocabulary inspired by the bizarre sayings and metaphors my own father had for very nearly every situation you can imagine. I don’t think I’ve ever had more fun writing a story. These two guys came alive for me and set up house in my heart.

Imagine my delight, then, over the past several weeks, as the rest of the world has started to notice and delight in Richard and Stanley as well.

First, I was thrilled to accept a contract with Scarsdale Publishing to turn Curmudgeon into a series. All the details will be coming ASAP, but for now, just know that the two ornery octogenarians have at least four more adventures ahead of them.

Then, just last week, I was humbled and honored when Curmudgeon received a 2018 Watty Award in the “wildcard” category. Since then, thousands of readers have joined the adventure and the overwhelming response is that they’re falling in love, too.

If you’d like more info, here’s the 411:

Richard had always believed he’d enjoy a few golden years before Death’s bony hand reached for him. But what does he get? He gets to live across the hall from friggin’ Stan Kapcheck with his shiny bald head and perfect teeth that were all his own, Stan Kapcheck who struts around like a peacock in his leather coat.

Honestly! What kind of respectable senior citizen wears leather?

But Stanley isn’t your average senior citizen. He’s a Hunter–a slayer of all things unnatural. He reveals to Richard that the one monster which has eluded him is the same beast that killed Richard’s wife and it’s due to kill again before the next new moon. The two men load up on ibuprofen and prune juice and embark on a cross-country demon-hunting adventure, but when The Devil Herself kidnaps Stanley, Richard realizes the line between Hunter and hunted is very thin, indeed, and the ornery octogenarian only has a few days left to trap The Devil, save Stanley, and slay the monster who murdered his bride.

LIST OF 13 IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER!

If Jim C. Hines wrote about Gilmore Girls taking a journey through the underworld, it might be a little something like A LIST OF 13.

Death sucks, but there’s good beer in Purgatory.

Alice and her adult daughter, Claire, created a “bucket list” of thirteen experiences they would seek out before Alice died from cancer. They never expected to die in a plane crash attempting to cross off number three. Now, mother and daughter are stuck in the underworld, unable to move on to their ultimate destiny until they finish the list, but finding an Irish Pub near the Fields of Asphodel, or swimming naked in the ocean while being pursued by bloodthirsty Aztecs and a smitten Egyptian god is as hard as it sounds. When everything they ever thought they knew is challenged, will faith be enough to carry them through?

A LIST OF 13 moves between the time after Alice’s death and the time before, allowing the reader to explore the way her relationships evolve and intertwine throughout her life and beyond.

Cover Reveal – List of 13 by EA Comiskey

My friends, I can’t even wait to share this book with you! It’s a fun and wild adventure in a very different vein than anything I’ve published before and I suspect you’re going to love it.

When Alice is diagnosed with terminal cancer, her daughter suggests they make a bucket list. They come up with thirteen experiences they want to enjoy together while Alice is still healthy enough to travel. Unfortunately, their plane crashes while they’re trying to cross off number three. Now, mother and daughter are stuck in the underworld together, unable to move on to their ultimate destiny until they finish the list, but finding an Irish Pub near the Fields of Asphodel, or swimming naked in the ocean while being pursued by bloodthirsty Aztecs and a smitten Egyptian god is even harder than it sounds.

When everything they ever thought they knew is challenged, will their faith be strong enough to carry them through to their final reward?

Now Available – More Things In Heaven And Earth

I’m very excited to announce that More Things in Heaven and Earth is now available in e-book and trade paperback!

From author, Jennifer Friess: “This book is fabulous. I don’t read a lot of books with a supernatural element in them, except maybe the occasional vampire, but this story is very well-crafted and accessible to everyone. There are creatures of myth and religion throughout who battle over control of Earth & all the realms. It is a battle of biblical proportions, without being preachy. The villain builds his power by feeding off something we are all guilty of every day. I can’t tell you anymore, except that you should read this novel & I can’t wait for the next one.”

What did the other early readers say?

“The description is elaborate and elegant… your writing style is amazing!”

“I’m hooked.”

“Very thought-provoking.”

“Oh, the chills!”

“Intriguing.”

“New mantra: Faith is lethal to fear.”

“Getting pulled into the story. Loving it!”

“Your writing is dynamite!”

“Your writing is so layered and rich. It felt both mythological and contemporary.”
