About

I just finished my second manuscript. I want to get it out before the buzz about my first book, "Bay's End", dies away. "Dastardly Bastard" needs editing, proofing, a cover and promotional materials.  Below you find the poem I wrote that inspired the novel, and a working synopsis.

"The Dastardly Bastard of Waverly Chasm does gleefully scheme of malevolent things.

Beware, child fair, of what you find there. His lies how they hide in the shadows he wears.

`Cross wreckage of bridge, is where this man lives. Counting his spoils, his eye how it digs.

Tread, if you dare, through his one-eyed stare. This Dastardly Bastard is neither here, nor there..."

"Located twenty miles east of Bay's End, Waverly Chasm waits. An evil resides inside, old and terribly lonely..." 

"Dastardly Bastard" is a horror novel that focuses on personified memories-how the bad ones can destroy you and the good ones can give you strength to fight back.  The novel follows seven individuals and their struggle for survival during a seemingly innocent tour of the chasm's trail. 

02/25/2012 UPDATE!

I just received the quotes for everything I need to complete "Dastardly Bastard" 

Kickstarter/Amazon fees if funding is successful = $150

Editing (including first proofread) = $400

Second proofread = $65

Cover = $600

Promotional materials (Banner ads on various websites) = $300

Also, I would like to include, if I funding goes over the goal of $1,500 the remainder of funds will go into extra promotional materials for "Dastardly Bastard" and my first novel, "Bay's End". 

Thank you to everyone who has already contributed. I greatly appreciate your support!
