Links to media articles (good ones; I’ll leave you to find any scathing ones) will be posted here.
December 1, 2015: The New York Daily News interviewed me about why the USA needs Krampus!
November 9, 2015: Jennifer Matlock, the Book Worm, reviewed Sentinels.
November 7, 2015: Mallory Heart Reviews gave Sentinels some love.
September 2015: I’ve long maintained that some of the best reviews are the ones you’re least expecting. So imagine my surprise when I was alerted to this review of Sentinels on Hellnotes.com. The book doesn’t officially release until November and already it has a nice review. That made my day.
November 2, 2014: The Morris County (N.J.) Daily Record profiled me and my book and conveyed exactly what I had hoped for! Thanks to reporter Michael Izzo.
Josef Hernandez, a writer out of Minnesota, mentioned The Dark Servant and other Samhain Horror titles on Examiner.com. Now I can say my name was mentioned in the same article as Stephen King’s (whose name was brought up regarding the Big 5’s November releases.) I thought that was cool. Now I gotta shoot for being mentioned in the same paragraph, and eventually, the same sentence. Gotta start somewhere.
November 5: Horror fanatic and author Glenn Rolfe reviewed The Dark Servant for iHorror.com and has been very supportive. Check out his review, and also check out his new short story collection, Slush.
November 6: Thank you to My Bookish Ways for posting an interview. Kristin Centorcelli runs a great operation and her website reflects it. Do check it out.
And thank you to fellow Samhain Publishing scribe David Bernstein, who kindly ran details about The Dark Servant and its related giveaways on his site. David and I are release day buddies. His newest novel, The Unhinged, hit shelves and ereaders on November 4.
November 11: Author Cat Cavendish interviewed me for her website, and couldn’t have been kinder in the process. Thank you, Cat!he
November 12: The Wag the Fox blog also interviewed me and did a terrific job.

I managed to get on Rush Limbaugh’s national radio program to discuss the difficulty new authors face, requiring them to ask for help, even when they might not want to. Without me asking, Rush mentioned my book!
December 6: Promote Horror hosted a guest post by me.
December 17: Author Michael Patrick Hicks reviewed The Dark Servant and had some nice things to say.
January 5, 2015: Matthew Scott Baker over at Shattered Ravings penned the first fine review of TDS in the new year.
January 11: I’m thrilled that Jacqueline Cutler reviewed TDS for the Star-Ledger, New Jersey’s largest newspaper, and more importantly, she liked it. It was my first ever review in a major newspaper, and I was sweating over this one, honestly. Janet Maslin, please take note.
January 29: Long and Short Reviews gave TDS 4 stars!
February 10: The Horror Society’s Michael Junivall posted an excellent review of TDS.
April 1: Michael Collings, of Collings Notes, is a former English professor out of Idaho. And he surprised me with this thoughtful review of my book. It came out of the blue, totally unexpected, and most importantly, it was positive. Those are the best reviews. One thing is for certain: I will be on the lookout for dangling modifiers in my future works.
April 4: When you begin writing in the horror genre, you soon begin reading the name Matt Molgaard, and the title of his website: Horror Novel Reviews. This is one of the more respected outlets for horror fans to learn about their next potential read. You haven’t made it in horror unless HNR has its say, and fortunately for me, it had mostly nice things to say about The Dark Servant! Here’s the review.
