If you’re a hardcore horror fan I know you’ll love my latest novella, NO TURNING BACK, which was published by DarkFuse last week! The hardcover edition sold out, but it’s available as an ebook pretty much everywhere!
We made it safely home around 7pm last night after an amazing weekend at Mysticon in Roanoke, VA. To say I had fun would be the understatement of the century. There’s a vibe at these geek conventions (and being a certified geek myself, I feel a-okay using the term) that is somewhat hard to find elsewhere; A warmth of kindred souls meeting. I spent some time thinking about why that feeling exists, and came up with something very simple. People are happiest when they’re being exactly who they want to. With all the awesome, outlandish costumes at these things, it’s damn near impossible to judge anyone. So everyone seems comfortable and completely in their element. It’s just a shame that this atmosphere doesn’t spill over into the streets more often. I can’t tell you how happy I’d be to see Darth Vader or the Hulk on my way to grab a cup of coffee down on Main Street! People are just happy at these things, and I don’t ever recall seeing a fight at a con. People go to revel in things they’re passionate about and to meet the people behind these tv shows, books, and bands. And it’s rad.
The author panels i sat on were a lot of fun, as was discussing the state of gothic music with some very passionate fans on Saturday evening. We performed at midnight on Saturday to a packed ballroom using a sub-par PA system that would be more appropriate for a high school graduation ceremony. And it was a blast! A huge thanks to the staff at Mysticon and all the fans who made it such an incredible weekend! You guys are the best!
Tony & I arrived in Roanoke after noon yesterday & got our rooms and vendor table squared away. At 5 we were on a panel with the other guests of honor to kick off the weekend. Being a huge fan of Battlestar Galactica, I was psyched to be beside Nicki Clyne and Richard Hatch. She’s completely adorable and he’s as nice a guy as you’ll meet. To close out the ceremony Tony & I played an acoustic version of Earth Angel that I’m hoping shows up on YouTube. Richard threw in a pretty great high note at the end of the song that needs to be heard by the world!
Tonight we’re performing in Ballroom C at midnight. Come see us!

This Valentine’s Day (February 14th) we’ll be releasing a digital-only collection of hard to find tracks from the early days of the band! Mark your calendars and spread the word!
BELLA MORTE – Rare and Unreleased (volume 1)
This digital-only release compiles material from the early years of Bella Morte. It features the song “Fall No More” from the “Vampire The Masquerade : Music From The Succubus Club” compilation, available for the first time in years. Included in its entirety is the bands’ first EP “Remorse” which was recorded in the band’s rehearsal space directly to cassette soon after the band was formed. “Remorse” was sold as a cassette-only, limited-edition EP, and helped to fund Bella Morte’s debut full-length album, “Remains”. Also included on this compilation is a cover of the classic 45 Grave song “Party Time” which was made famous by the film “Return of the Living Dead”, and the long sought after “Through The Window”, which was recorded for the album “The Quiet” but was never released.
This album will be available through Amazon, iTunes and most anywhere that sells digital music!

ALL THE DARKNESS IN THE WORLD by ANDY DEANE
As a troubled teenager, Jace witnesses a horrible murder at the hands of a monster in an alleyway near his house. He narrowly escapes with his life, and over time comes to wonder if what he saw was real.
As a young adult, he moves away from home to find that some memories don’t fade so easily. And sometimes monsters come back. Now people from Jace’s past are disappearing one by one, and the white-eyed, pale creature from his youth has returned with a taste for blood, and will stop at nothing to see Jace dead.
Soon Jace finds himself not only fighting for his life, but for his soul.
