”Acevedo has proven once again that he is a very disturbed man--and I mean that in the absolute finest sense of the term.” Tim Dorsey, author of Atomic Lobster. Welcome to the writings of Denver author Mario Acevedo. Urban fantasy. Mystery. Hard-boiled sketchiness. Lies, lies, and more lies. The truth only when mandated by law.
It's a Denver Post #1 Bestseller! Blood Business, the latest anthology from Hex Publishers hit the streets like a spray of gunfire from a drive-by shooting. Josh Viola and I had the pleasure of editing a fantastic offering of short fiction from a stable of amazing writers. This book is something we're truly proud of.
"...a unique, compelling, dark production very highly recommended for fans
who like their crimes tinged with psychological depth and horror..." D. Donovan, Sr Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
And let's not forget this amazing cover. Get your copy here.
For you Felix Gomez fans, book seven is in the works. In this latest adventure, the series take a detour as you can surmise from the title, Steampunk Banditos: Sex Slaves of Shark Island. Despite the new setting, fear not, Felix won't disappoint. There's plenty of action, intrigue, and weirdness.
Mark your calendars. University of Doom hits the streets. The launch signing will be at the Tattered Cover-Colfax, Wednesday, July 19, 7pm. Be there or be prepared for evil-genius cyborg zombies to hunt you down.
Hex Publishers put together this awesome trailer.
And I gotta share this nice blurb by Kirkus Reviews.
University of Doom will be reprinted by Hex Publishers. Release date will be early this summer. Here's the awesome new cover.
Felix Gomez book #7 is in final edits. As if Felix's world wasn't troublesome enough, he got sent to an alternative steampunk past. Much craziness! And all the sketchy sex and mayhem you've come to love and expect. What else could it be with a title like: Sex Slaves of Shark Island
More good news, a double-dose actually. The anthology I edited for Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers, Found, is a finalist for a 2017 Colorado Book Award. Plus, another anthology that published my story is also a finalist, CyberWorld, from Hex Publishers. So I'm up against myself.
I was crazy busy this year, attending a slew of big, BIG conventions this year with WordFire Press, starting with PensaCon, swinging back to the west coast for Emerald City Con in Seattle, then Planet City ComicCon in Kansas City, MO (my new favorite city outside of Denver), to Miami, then DragonCon. Shoehorned into all that I had LitFest, various other appearances, and I edited the anthology Found for the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers and co-edited another anthology for Hex Publishers. I was one mo-fo of a whirlwind.
So the big news:
First--> My newest novel, University of Doom is out, both an ebook and in trade paperback. My best endorsement so far comes from my eleven-year-old next door neighbor:
I laughed so hard, milk shot out my nose.
And--> I have a short-story in CyberWorld, from Hex Publishers. The release date is November 10, 2016, with a signing at the Tattered Cover, LoDo. The collection kicks serious ass... as does the cover.
