More big news!

So I don’t want to tip my hand, but a writer who I respect very much, and who has been a huge influence on my work, was cool enough to give Nickel Plated a look. And she loved it. The review should be up tomorrow on Amazon, but trust me, it’s amazing. I owe this lady a beer, no doubt.

On a side note, if you can guess who it is in the comments, a signed ARC of Nickel Plated is headed your way.

    Hey, I recently stumbled across your book ‘From Ashes Rise’ on Amazon but it unfortunately was sold out. It definitely sounds like something that I would like to check out and was wondering if you might be able to get me pointed in the right direction? If you have any copies laying around I’d gladly purchase one from you. I grew up around Grayling and Traverse City and it automatically sounded like something I’d need to read. I would have sent you a private message or email but couldn’t find any other contact info.

    Also, just throwing this out there, I saw a picture of you wearing a Converge shirt. Stoked. If you’re interested check my band, Ancient Shores, out at and download our last full length. If you’re into Coalesce, Deadguy, Botch, Cursed, etc you might dig us. We’ve also got a 7″ coming out on A389 Records in the next week or so.

    Send me an email if you can help me out man, I’d love to read it! I’m going to pick up Nickel Plated as well. Thanks man.

    Hi Joel,

    Thanks for the interest in my work. Unfortunately, Ashes is out of print, and is going to stay that way for the foreseeable future. Nickel Plated is being released after several professional edits, and I didn’t think it would be fair to people who enjoyed that one to purchase my warts and all Michigan survivalist story. Ideally, Ashes will someday get the edit it sorely needs and see a re-release, but I have no idea when that will be. For now, you should be able to read it here, though the downloader can be a bit finicky.

    If the downloader just flat out won’t work, let me know and I will email you a pdf file of it.

    As for the music, I will totally give your band a look, Coalesce and Botch are two of my absolute favorites, and I like Deadguy as well. A band influenced by those heavy hitters has to be great.

      Awesome. Thanks for the link. I’ll let you know if it works or not. I’m at work and they’ve got everything pretty much blocked off.

    The link worked perfectly and I’ve been enjoying it. I was pleasantly surprised whenever I saw the line from Lowest Common Denominator and got ultra pumped haha. Thanks again.

    That’s awesome, I’m really glad to hear that you’re enjoying it. One of the coolest parts of that book, at least for me, was even though they knew it was going to be self-published, not a single one of the bands that I was able to contact for lyrics said no, nor did they ask for so much as a dime. Only in punk rock/metal would you find a community that cool.
