On Inkshares Horror Novel

Have you guys heard about this? I recently heard about a crowdfunding site called Inkshares. It’s basically Kickstarter or Indiegogo crossbred with Createspace or Lulu. It looks like a site where you can crowdfund a novel that will have an ebook and physical presence in bookstores. Unlike Kikstarter or Indiegogo where you give them thousands of dollars and then the writer keeps a percentage and has to then hire editors and distributors, Inkshares does all of that. So if a project is successfully funded at Inshares, it includes a professional manuscript editor and distributor.

I had no idea how any of this works, so I figured I’d dive in and take a look see with my current manuscript. I’m working on a 90 thousand word novel about three strangers entering the witness protection program when they accidentally thwart a serial killer. They’re relocated to a new state, but their new home brings them into contact with horrors beyond imagination.

You can find the Inkshares page, along with fun FAQs and whatnot, and back this project here are: https://www.inkshares.com/projects/horror-novel

On The Invisible Gay release

The_Invisible_Gay_400x600Hi all. My erotic M/M novella The Invisible Gay was released today. The ebook is available exclusively through the publisher JMS Books for one week, and then will hit online retailers. The story is a modern day, gay reimagining of HG Wells’ classic The Invisible Man.

When Kegan Kemp moves in to his new dorm room at Prescott University, he’s planning on starting an exciting new life full of fun and adventure. After one day, Kegan realizes that he only left the dramas of high school for the dramas of college. He’s rooming with an attractive, mostly straight guy with boundary issues and he becomes smitten by Randall, an upperclassman who seems more interested in being friends than anything more.

Griffin Herbert is a brilliant young science student coming from a broken home moving onto the same floor as Kegan, who happens to be his new lab partner. While Griffin plans on enjoying a new life consisting of peaceful studying, he finds himself smitten by his ruggedly good-looking roommate. A winner of several science competitions, Griffin is picked out in his first chemistry class to work on a special project by his unscrupulous professor.

While Kegan works on moving out of the Friend Zone with Randall, Griffin grows obsessed with his research. Once he discovers the correct chemical process to reverse the polarity of light, Griffin injects himself with his serum, effectively turning himself invisible to the naked eye.

During the following weekend, Prescott University is plunged into terror as the voyeuristic invisible man slowly deteriorates into madness and seeks revenge on those he believes have wronged him.

Kegan’s burgeoning friendship with Randall is put in jeopardy when they become embroiled in Griffin’s madness. With Griffin running loose, campus security goes on lockdown and paranoid sets in. Can Kegan manage to win Randall’s heart while simultaneously struggling against an invisible genius driven mad by his own creation, or will Griffin prove unstoppable?

Check it out at JMS Books now.
