Here's the cover for my first novella in more than two years, due out from Screaming Dreams Publishing in March. 'Yuppieville' follows the fortunes of a young couple who move from L.A. to a newly built town in Nevada, looking for a safer, more contented kind of lifestyle. Naturally, they don't find it. Yup, there's something very wrong behind the facade of the place. You'll have to wait a couple of months to find out what that is.

The artwork is by Steve Upham, who runs Screaming Dreams. I thought I was a perfectionist, but man! Steve showed me fifteen versions before we arrived at one that he was happy with. Thanks to him for the terrific work. And the book will be out just in time for World Horror, Brighton.
