Fire, Pain, & Ruin. A @rutherford.manor novel.
My upcoming novel for 2020.
It is in beta/proof and the initial feedback from the test readers is astounding.
Here's some little tid bits about it from the official Rutherford Manor Facebook:
Trying to live a normal life in the world of Rutherford Manor is difficult at best and sometimes impossible for the residents of the infamous household. Lisa and Louise Savidge are now young teenagers with a growing interest in the world, boys, and the family business.
Spalding and Penny Savidge certainly have their hands full with these young and highly curious girls and that doesn’t include all of the trauma, family dynamics, infatuation, past loves, supernatural events, and ancient dark curses that they must all endure.
All of this and MUCH MORE will unfold in our next Rutherford Manor book; Fire, Pain, & Ruin written by Konn Lavery - Horror Author! 😈
This time around our story includes RMU fan favorites including Spalding, Penny, Lisa, Louise, Nox, Lilith, Billy, Vivian, The Connors, and the mysterious Midwives of Rowley!
Launching in Spring 2020. More news coming very soon!
----- Cant wait to get this out to you all!
Another read this year, no particular order. The Art of Loving by Erich Fromm.
A fascinating dive into what love really is. He presents it as something that is grown and maintained. The book explores how to navigate love and how it applies to everything you experience in life.
Last night was a blast! Thank you to @dm_infamous for having me be a part of their closing concert for the year.
It also marked the last show of the year for me. Now, it's time to buckle down and get to work on the second @rutherford.manor novel and Mental Damnation IV.
Huge thanks to everyone this year for the love and support for my writing. Through the release of The White Hand, the flash fiction on the blog, and short stories found in @straybooksltd and Constellate Publishing.
I'll be sure to keep you all updated on progress, post more flash fiction, and share pictures of Spank the cat.
Come check out the last @dm_infamous show for the year!
It is also the last event I will have books available for signing. See you all tonight.

The Harvesters are closing in. The beast is about to break free. Angie and Ruggie can’t outrun them. Their only hope is to venture into The Lost, the remains of civilization before the war, and before the collapse of the planet.
Scrappers Part IV continues the sci-fi horror universe that is being developed through short stories. Enjoy the story in written word, audio, artwork and soundscape.
Follow the link in the bio to find parts I, II, and III.

I am beyond thrilled to share the noisy industrial rock goodness of TAXMAN. This first release includes two gnarly remixes and a B side track. The remixes include @virtual.terrorist heavily distorted angry beat variation and @thecalling67 melodic, moody version. Track listing is
2. Taxman (Eat The Rich Remix By Virtual Terrorist)
3. Taxman (Elijah Hennig Remix)
4. The Inevitable Mental Collapse Into Daily Conformity
All being mastered by Alain Levesque of @voice_industrie.
November 15th, the TAXMAN is coming for you... #yegMusic #industrialmusic #bobbyBoy...
Another read this year. No particular order.
Future Babble by Dan Gardner.
Pretty fun evaluation on predictions. It is a little dated (2010) and focuses on the 2008 US crash. It also shares major predictions over the past 100 years. Yes, it covers Y2K.
The writing style is humorous which makes it more engaging too.
UNRELATED TO WRITING:
Started a music project @woke.band
Music has been an outlet for me as long as I can remember. I started learning to write and play back in 2014, mostly in the industrial, noise, and ambient genres.
It has shown up in the Seed Me novel score and the YEGman novel score, supporting my fascination with transmedia storytelling.
Now, the musical interest has taken a life of its own in a new direction. I'm stoked to start up the project @woke.band.
The first single coming out this month! Stay tuned.

Thanks Calmar Secondary School for having me! We got to chat about persistence of writing, the business side and sparking ideas!
