Iceberg! Right ahead!

So I'm changing publishers.

And it sucks.

It's taken me a little while to think of how to put this into my blog; but I've decided to forego all the gory details (the other Vamplit writers know what happened) and just state the facts.

I'm changing publishers.

End of.

So, yes, the paperback edition of Swan Song has been cancelled.

It fucking sucks, but what can you do, eh?

Anyhoo, I'm shopping my four screenplays around Hollywood now. Yep. I'm getting myself an agent!

Established, best selling author, Colin Bateman, actually advised me to get a literary agent too. So who am I to argue with such advice?

So it's still full steam ahead on my second novel while I find a new home for my first.

In addition, I am currently writing a VERY black comedy about a break up (non vampire related) and toying with numerous ideas for additional short stories.

You gotta roll with the punches, man.

A special thank you to Facebook for allowing me to reach out and talk to some of my biggest creative influences, I never thought I'd have a chance to tell Clive Barker personally how much his work means to me.

Keep on writing, guys.

'Cause what else is there?


  1. Keep looking forward and keep walking ahead, right? I wish you the very best as you find your way, Jev. Whatever happens will be bigger than it ever could have been before because we've learned too much and seen to much personal growth.
    That brass ring is out there, my friend. I look forward to hearing the details as you claim it.


    P.S.: I also saw Mr. Barker's profile on Facebook. I saw how so many had reached out to him. I might as well, but have yet to do so. It is very cool that he has made himself so accessible.

  2. Thanks Jimmy! Hard to find the enthusiasm to write these days, yet I soldier on. I have all the ideas and no real motivation to write. Funny, some writers have it the other way round. Good luck to you also, kind sir!
