I Have Stuff, Yanno…

Really, I truly do have stuff. Pieces I’m writing for people. Places I’m going to be to sell those writings.

That sort of thing.

This here post is to updated all you fine Brownies on said activities. Well, most of them. The ones I can talk about anyway.

June 18th marks my return to the Grove City Wine & Arts Festival. I’ll be selling with a couple of fine folks you may have heard of: Tim McWhorter and Violet Patterson. We only have one spot this year (as opposed to last year’s rainy fiasco, where we had two), so come by and see us. We’ll have horror, urban fantasy, paranormal romance, and science fiction. Kind of a grab bag, really.

Did I mention the wine? Over twenty wineries are participating this year. Oh… and music, and artists (not just us authors). It runs from 11a-10p. Really no excuse not to get out and have some fun.

And the even bigger news, some that I’m really excited about is my appearance at Scares that Care Weekend July 22-24th. A twist of fate flipped over an ace in the hole and I’m going to make it this year, when I thought I wasn’t. You’ll find me at the PlotForge table hawking my books alongside Tim McWhorter (what is it with this guy? He’s everywhere… maybe he’s stalking me? Or maybe I’m stalking him…)

This convention… well, I can’t say enough about it. I attended last year, sold books, and the atmosphere was just wonderful. Horror for a cause. Read, donate, show up, have a drink or ten with me, and let’s give to those who need it more than we do. All the deets are on the website.

If you haven’t, check out my latest episode on The Lift. The episode, “The Burden of Others,” is right there on the splash page. You can also get the Kindle version of my latest short story, “An Unfettered Life,” in the anthology, Dystopian Express. You really should do both of these things.

And that’s it for now, Brownies.

Publication News! “Emotional Eaters” is live!

My fellow Brownies … yeah, that won’t work. I can’t be that guy this early in the morning. I’ve been pretty quiet lately other than the fun posts, mainly because I’m busy writing and editing (the 2nd Blood War novel is well on its way) and family and holidays. BUT, I’m here to share some publication news.

eatersartFirst, you remember me talking about working on “The Lift,” a podcast that’s part Twilight Zone and part Fantasy Island. I wrote two episodes for the first season, the first of which is up now for your listening pleasure. “Emotional Eaters” is the Thanksgiving special, and it’s a holiday feast you don’t want to miss. We all bring more than just pumpkin pie and cranberry sauce to the table, don’t we? Find out what Kasey Adams takes with her. The kick ass art there is by Jeanette Andromeda, narration by the always talented Daniel Foytik (who wrote the blog post, Finding Real Magic), and that music? Holy balls, Brownies, check out the composers, Cathedral Sounds, at their website and their SoundCloud. I’m proud to work with such talented people.

And no, I didn’t forget … check out the voice talent behind Victoria herself, Amber Collins. I heard Victoria’s narration before anything else. Chills, Brownies, chills.

And later today, I’ll have ANOTHER ANNOUNCEMENT about a favorite story of mine.
