I saw Rob Zombie’s latest installment in the Firefly Family Saga, 3 From Hell, this evening. Before I begin my review and hurl some “first impression” thoughts your way, two things: First, I’m a huge Rob Zombie fan, through and through. I’m telling you this because I don’t want you to mistake me for an […]Read More (Review) “3 From Hell”
There are two things I wish I’d learned about at a younger age. Not work ethic. Not the dangers of alcoholism. Not the power of a passing compliment to save a stranger’s life. I’m talking about video games and weed. The latter I don’t indulge in very often, but the former…man, oh man, I’ve been […]Read More Scared Sh*tless
I went tanning for the first time last week. My boss bought a tanning salon, and since I now have the option to use the tanning beds for free, I felt like it would be a waste to not try it at least once. A week later, I’m still peeling. My chest. My arms. My […]Read More Skin Flakes in my Corn Flakes
Ouch. I’m sore. So, so sore. And I love it. No, this isn’t my poor attempt at poetry, just some post-training complaints after a grueling (and awesome) week returning to my powerlifting training after five months of recovery. I had two small tears in my abdominal muscle walls back in March, not quite a hernia […]Read More AHHHHHnold!
Pardon the straightforward post title, but I’m just popping in to quickly plug this weekend’s event. The Mid-Ohio Indie Author Book Expo is THIS SATURDAY, August 10th, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. in Urbancrest, OH (just outside of Columbus). The event takes place at the Vaughn E. Hairston YMCA, and there will be dozens […]Read More Book Expo is THIS SATURDAY!!!
After an amazing weekend at the Dark X Fest in Hudson, OH, I’m finally settled back into reality here in the Sandusky area. I had an absolutely brilliant time at the convention, and I met a lot of really great artists from all across the horror community. One such artist was Jeremiah Witkowski, whose table […]Read More A Dark and (se)X(y) Convention
Damn, a month goes by quickly when you’re on the road 24/7! New Orleans, Los Angeles, Houston, Sarnia, Chicago…lots and lots of work (for my “real” job, not for book promotion) and lots and lots of good memories along the way. The worst part of travel for me is the long periods of time spent […]Read More California Dreamin’
Greetings, Earthlings! Disclaimer: This post has nothing to do with horror. Scratch that. This post has EVERYTHING to do with horror, but not the type we all love to scare each other with and go to conventions for because we’re dark and dirty freaks. This type of horror pertains to (gasp!) hospital bills. More specifically, […]Read More Fo’ Real, Do! (Sam’s GoFundMe)
It’s been busy in an awesome way lately. Two new projects are taking up a lot of my time, along with a few short stories that I’ve been occasionally poking at whenever I have time. The past week has flown by pretty quickly. Last Friday I got to see a friend from college I haven’t […]Read More Conveniently Unconventional Conventions
Fast week, but lots to show for it. I’m averaging about four handwritten pages a night, which is pretty good for me, but nothing compared to the speed of some other authors. Other than Birthday Girl: Coronation, I’m also editing a YA novel called Moving Through and writing the first draft of a short story I […]Read More “Give It Away, Now!”
