Paper Tigers, forthcoming in late 2015 from Dark House Press.

Ink, out now from Samhain Publishing.

A tattoo can be a work of art...or a curse.

When Jason Harford meets the tattoo artist he nicknames Sailor, a little ink seems the perfect thing to help celebrate his return to the single world. Sailor’s work is nothing short of extraordinary - the griffin tattoo looks real enough to climb free and take flight - and if Jason changes his mind, Sailor also specializes in tattoo removal.

With new ink and a new girlfriend, life is good for Jason. Until he hears the flutter of wings in the night. Until he finds drops of blood staining his sheets. Until he discovers a brick wall where the tattoo shop should be.

Jason hunts Sailor down and demands answers. The tattoo is alive, it's hungry, and if Jason tries to kill it, he'll die. Sailor will remove it for a price, but he's not interested in money or Jason's soul. He wants something far worse...
