New Upcoming Novel! And My First Acting Job!

You read the title to this post. We're not burying the lead here. I HAVE A NEW NOVEL COMING OUT hot off the heels of my last one, I Will Rot Without You. The new book is called PUPPET SKIN and as you can see from that picture, the amazing Katie McCann once again did my cover art. Here the description from the back cover:

Hannah graduates from middle school on Friday. That is the day she transforms into a living puppet, like her parents and teachers before her. No longer a human girl made of flesh and feelings, but a perfect wooden NEW self, whose strings lead up from her limbs to an endless black void above. With no pain. No sorrow. No sickness. No fear.

But Hannah has begun to suspect something is very, very wrong. And in a world where emotion is treated like a disease, and unknown terrors lurk inside everyone, just keeping your soul alive past childhood might be the greatest challenge of all.

"Puppet Skin is a dark, grotesquely-beautiful Bizarro nightmare fable for alienated teens of all ages. If you've ever felt lost in this deranged universe, Danger's book knows exactly what you mean." - John Skipp, author of THE LIGHT AT THE END and THE ART OF HORRIBLE PEOPLE

ARCs are available RIGHT NOW so if you are a blogger or reviewer (or know a reviewer) hit me up at danger_slater@yahoo.com and we'll see what we can do about getting you a copy.

The book releases this July, from Fungasm Press.

And if that wasn't enough...THERE'S MORE!

I have a small cameo in Anti-Films new movie THE WOLF AND THE BABY, a weird horror-comedy-thriller-I-don't-know-what-to-call-it. The whole movie is available to watch RIGHT NOW, FOR FREE on YouTube:


The Anti-Films guys are great. They even gave me a speaking role which officially puts me on IMDb! Plus they're fans of my books. HOW FREAKIN' COOL IS THAT?

So please enjoy the film. Especially since it's free.
