Transubstantiate - my debut novel

Hey guys,

I do hang out here, but I mostly lurk these days, been so busy with my MFA and writing. I wanted to post this up in case any of you are interested.

My debut novel, a neo-noir thriller called Transubstantiate, will be out on 6.18.10, and pre-order starts tomorrow. It's a mix of Lost, The Truman Show and The Prisoner.

I've been writing my butt off for the last three years, and have published over 20 short stories, won at contest at ChiZine Publications, and have a story coming out in the Cemetery Dance anthology Shivers VI in May. CD publishes people like Stephen King, Peter Straub, Ray Bradbury, etc.

If this sounds interesting, you can check out the site at http://www.transubstantiate.net where you can read a sample chapter, the synopsis, and also join the Facebook group, where we are 800 strong and growing. Join the fun and spread the word, if this is something that sounds cool to you.

Thanks,
Richard

thanks - we'll see what happens - i want to sell 5000 not 500, as that can get me an agent, and maybe a bigger press, possible film rights...lots of stuff in the works

Forgot to add, I think I had a flashback to my high school religion classes (went to a Catholic school) because transubstantiation was the one term I remembered most. :-b
