Well, I’m going to be at Rock & Shock (I don’t even know what that is, some kind of fruit basket?) in October. I’ll be pole dancing at The Bag & The Crow’s table, catching dollar bills from Susan and Jassen, throwing Ken Wood erotic stares, flinging my underwear at Gary Bussey, Freddy Krueger and a bunch of other people.
Wait, that’s all wrong. I’ll be at The Bag & The Crow’s table watching Jassen do all of that.
I’ll be bringing paperback copies of my first Division novel Nursery Rhymes 4 Dead Children to sign. Should be good fun. I hope Jack Ketchum shows up because I want have him sign my tits.
Yeah. That’s better.
I finished and submitted the second Division novel (The Dampness of Mourning) and the second Frank Gunn novella (Down Here in the Dark.) They’re a lot of fun and have a lot of sub-text though they both read very quickly and they both get intense and tender and sad and violent.
Taking a well-deserved break lately. It feels great to recharge before I search out the things inside I’ll need to put in the next book. I’d planned to write some short stories but I’m such a lazy ass when it comes to shorts. I can’t write just any idea that pops in my head, I used to do that all the time but found I don’t like them at all. It has to take shape a bit, have some meat to it first. Besides, writing longer work is where I get tons of satisfaction.
Also reviewed Nate Southard’s Just Like Hell for The Crow’s Caw. Check it out.
I’m pleased that Peter Schwotzer is going to interview me before my story (The Weight of All These Years) goes live on Literary Mayhem in October. I want to line up more interviews. Send some my way.
And I have a story (We Run Races With Goblin Troopers) coming out in A Hacked-up Holiday Massacre, edited by Shane McKenzie. Got stories by me, Jack Ketchum, Joe Lansdale, Bentley Little, Lee Thomas, my buddy Kevin Wallis, and a bunch of others. Can’t wait to give a copy or three away!
If you’ve read some of my work feel free to write a review on Amazon or somewhere. It helps a ton and sharing is great.
Thanks for all the support and patience as I flounder about!
