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!”
The infernal punishment of the Scoville Scale has been inflicted on my stomach, and I honestly can’t say I don’t deserve it. I’ve started growing Chocolate Bhutlah peppers in my apartment, and these are apparently the HOTTEST of the hot peppers…so, of course, I want to eat one. I have a longstanding history of doing […]Read More Hot Hot Hot!
May the Fourth be with you! If you play your cards right, you can carry the Star Wars revelry right into Cinco de Mayo and stay wasted for a full 48 hours! Start lining up the tequila shots, and be responsible enough to get a ride from Uber or Lyft if you plan on partying […]Read More Extreme Horror and Extreme Fans
Okay, so this is a bit different. This is a post which has NOTHING to do with my books, NOTHING to do with my upcoming events, and NOTHING to do with horror in general. This is a post about Avengers: Endgame. Absolutely NO SPOILERS ahead (I’ll do the best I can), but I just have […]Read More Endgame
