CHASING THE DRAGON Available for Pre-Order

My new novella, Chasing the Dragon, is due out December 1 from ChiZine Publications, and now you can pre-order it via Horror Mall. The lovely cover you see above is courtesy of Erik Mohr, the artist responsible for all of ChiZine Publications' gorgeous covers.

This is going to be a stunning hardcover limited edition that retails for $35.00, eventually followed up by an unlimited trade paperback edition.

Keep in mind, though, that the hardcover limiteds are going to be printed to meet the demand expressed by the pre-orders. That means if you want a hardcover, pre-ordering is your best bet of getting one. After the pre-order phase is over, neither I nor ChiZine Publications will be able to guarantee availability or non-astronomical secondhand market prices.

Here's a teaser:

Centuries ago, St. George fought and killed a dragon - or so the legend goes. The truth is somewhat different. George failed in his mission, and the Dragon still walks the Earth, protected by an undead army, hiding in the shadows and slaughtering men, women, and children for its prey. Each of George’s descendants through time has been tasked with killing the Dragon, and each has failed. Twenty-five-year-old Georgia Quincey is the last of the line - the last, best hope for defeating the Dragon once and for all. But Georgia is also an addict, driven to the warm embrace of the needle by the weight of her responsibility and the loss of everything and everyone she has ever loved. Tracking her nemesis to the small town of Buckshot, New Mexico for their final showdown, Georgia is about to discover the truth about the Dragon, a terrible secret that could put all life on Earth in peril.
