I am also quite honored today to see my short story, “The Disappearance of Little Tommy Drummond,” appear over at Dead Beats Literary Blog. At the Dead Beats’ Facebook page, they quite generously commented that the story was “redolent of Stephen King,” which of course I took to be a very high compliment.
“The Disappearance of Little Tommy Drummond” can be found at the link below. Thanks, Dead Beats!
I was very pleased today to receive the Winter 2013 issue of Illumen Magazine, which featured my set of three poems, entitled “Three Dreamers.” This marks the first time my poetry has appeared in print format inside the United States, and the first time as well that I have been paid for my poetry.
Illumen is a print magazine of speculative poetry edited by Terrie Leigh Relf. It is published biannually by Alban Lake Publishing [previously it was published by Sam’s Dot Publishing], on April 1 and October 1, in perfect bound digest format. It contains speculative poetry, illustrations, articles, and reviews.
From Dagda Publishing: [We’ve set up a pre-release page for Eric Robert Nolan’s debut novel on Goodreads, if you’re a Goodreads member, please consider adding it to your “to-read” shelf. A great debut novel by this brilliant US writer.]
Dagda Publishing has released the cover artwork for my soon-to-be-released science fiction novel, “The Dogs Don’t Bark In Brooklyn Any More.” Dagda’s artist, AD Warr, did a fantastic job, both with the quality of the art itself and also with the concept — integrating the image of a wolf with an overlay of a city map. This is just great work, and I’m grateful for the talent and effort that obviously produced it.

Every Day Poets today featured my humorous poem, “Feast.” This is just a very short piece describing a group of animals quite happily dining on spilled spaghetti on the sidewalk.
Thanks to Dagda Publishing for another kind mention in its weekly newsletter today; the cover artwork for my upcoming novel, “The Dogs Don’t Bark In Brooklyn Any More,” should be revealed next week.
I received a very gracious note today from the good folks over at Dead Beats Literary Blog. They informed me that my poem, “Confession,” which was published there yesterday, received more than 70 “notes” — “likes,” “reblogs” and positive comments. This is an unusual amount for a single piece, they explained.
I am very grateful — both to Dead Beats and to their readers who reacted so kindly to my work. 🙂

I am honored to be able to share that Dead Beats Literary Bog today kindly published my poem, “Confession.”
This is a poem that is not for everybody, due to its darker themes and sexual imagery, as well as its criticism of organized religion. It definitely drew mixed reactions from people to whom I had shown it before submission.
I still stand by the piece, however, and I am quite grateful for Dead Beats for allowing me a forum for a poem like this.
THANK YOU, DEAD BEATS!
My self-published long story, “Iridescent Green Sharks,” drew at least a moderate following on Wattpad.com, attracting 70 readers in the two days since it appeared on Sunday. This wasn’t quite as wide an audience that I had hoped for, but at least there was a good number of people out there who read the story.
I’m grateful for the indispensable support and feedback from good friends like Michael Stanhope, Tina Zabbo and Doug Mann, who were quite generous toward me as always.
