children of god cover FINALCHILDREN OF GOD is now available to order in paperback and pre-order for the Kindle. The Kindle version will be released May 18.

In 2005, the Family of God walked out into a California desert to await the end of the world. Three years later, the cult destroyed itself in mass suicide and massacre. Plagued by guilt and PTSD, the survivors couldn’t talk about their experience until a psychiatrist treated them with poetry therapy, which allowed them to finally express themselves.

Ranging in form from haiku to sonnets, this collection is their stories in verse, expressing hope, love, faith, regret, and pain. In these apocalyptic dreams, the survivors find their voice and tell why they joined the cult, what they hoped to achieve, how they failed, and the night of the massacre.

the retreat 1 audiobook coverFrom Blue Heron Publishing, THE RETREAT #1: PANDEMIC, which I authored as part of an apocalyptic thriller series with Stephen Knight and Joe McKinney, is now available as an audiobook!

This edition is narrated by the great RC Bray, with whom I had the pleasure of working with for the audiobook editions of SUFFER THE CHILDREN and CRASH DIVE. His performance for THE RETREAT is every bit as fantastic as you’d expect if you’re a fan of his work.

The_AlchemistsAbout THE ALCHEMISTS:

1529. Spain wars with France over Italy, Turkish armies march against Christendom, and two alchemists resume an ancient duel to prove which is superior, science or magic.

Myrddin is a powerful wizard served by a beautiful young woman who is the greatest fighter of the age. Prospero is a brilliant scientist apprenticed by a painfully shy young man who can build anything, from hot air balloons to steam-powered battle tanks.

At Vienna, they will have to put aside their differences to survive the greatest threat of all: the unbeatable Ottoman Army and all the magic and monsters of Asia, unleashed to conquer Europe.

SILENT RUNNING by Craig DiLouie (cover)SILENT RUNNING, the second episode in my CRASH DIVE WW2 submarine adventure series, releases today!

Lt. Charlie Harrison survived the horrors of Rabaul and the midnight battle with the Mizukaze. When he reports to Sabertooth at Pearl, he must contend with a crew that is less than welcoming.

While underway, the captain reveals the submarine’s mission–to go to the Japanese-occupied Philippines, deliver supplies to the Filipino guerillas, and bring American refugees home.

When Sabertooth crosses paths with Yosai, one of the big IJN aircraft carriers that attacked Pearl Harbor, the mission changes. As disaster strikes, Charlie must take command and make the ultimate decision–get the refugees home, or risk everything on an all-or-nothing attack.

Get it here!

INFECTION WARTHE INFECTION WAR is now available!

This special bind-up edition from Permuted Press presents the classic zombie novels THE INFECTION and THE KILLING FLOOR in a single volume.

I’m thrilled about this edition for three reasons. First, this edition has an incredible foreword by the great Joe McKinney, whose work, along with David Moody’s, inspired me to take my first stab at zombie fiction. Second, it will be available in select bookstores via Simon & Schuster. And third, I gave both books a thorough new edit so they read even better than before.

THE INFECTION WAR is available from a limited print run, so get your copy while it’s available! Thanks for reading!

Get it at your local bookstore, at Amazon here or at Barnes and Noble’s website here.

P.S. Yes, I’m still hoping to do a third book in the series!

Aside from CRASH DIVE, I didn’t put out much new fiction in 2015, but I’ve got some great stuff coming out soon. Lots of great stuff.

THE ALCHEMISTS COVER (NEW)THE ALCHEMISTS: Renaissance fantasy about two alchemists, one a magician and the other a scientist, engaged in a duel to see which is superior, science or magic. Tapas Media is putting the book out in its digital format for three months, after which it will be available for Kindle. The paperback is available now here. The audiobook, which will be narrated by R.C. Bray, will be out in April.

SILENT RUNNING: This sequel to my popular submarine adventure story, CRASH DIVE, will be available for Amazon Kindle in early February. In this episode, Charlie is assigned to a new submarine that is tasked to go to the Philippines to rescue Americans trapped on an island occupied by the Japanese. I’ll be starting a third episode in the fall. The audiobook version will be available by March; the audiobook version of the first episode, CRASH DIVE, is now available here, narrated by R.C. Bray.

THE RETREAT: This popular ultraviolent zombie Amazon Kindle series is being co-written with Stephen Knight and Joe McKinney. Joe just wrote the third episode, which is available here. I’ll be hard at work on the fourth episode starting in late February. We’re planning six episodes in all. The audiobook version of my first episode, THE RETREAT: PANDEMIC, will be available by February, narrated by R.C. Bray.

SILENT RUNNING by Craig DiLouie (cover)THE FRONT: This new zombie series is co-written with Timothy Long and David Moody. THE FRONT is about an airborne unit during World War 2 that must go behind enemy lines to defeat a new zombie virus that now threatens to overrun all of Europe. Episode 1, by Tim Long, is now available for Amazon Kindle here. Tim’s writing from the perspective of the Americans, who are then joined in episode 2 by the British paras (the Red Devils), which will be written by David Moody. I’ll be coming in with episode 3, when the Americans and Brits do the unthinkable, which is join forces with their old enemies the German paratroopers. We’re planning six episodes in all.

CHILDREN OF GOD: This horror poetry collection, written with Jonathan Moon, is a series of poems written by the survivors of a doomsday cult. Haunting stuff. The book will be available in late February.
