A kink my bidinky dink

Signed the contract for an anthology where I’ll share pages with heroes like Lee Thomas, Jack Ketchum, and Joe Lansdale. Yowzers!

Sent the next guest blog (On Keeping a Healthy Attitude) to Lincoln Crisler.

You can snatch NURSERY RHYMES 4 DEAD CHILDREN in Digital, in Trade Paperback and in signed/limited Hardcover. It’ll bring you luck and possibly fortune.

There’s still time to enter the Crowmother giveaway, but hurry up. Those who already entered rock.

I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend. It’s beautiful here; a good day for a walk in the woods and more words on the novel. Three days off work really spoiled me.

Three... the magic number!

#1-- The paperback of NURSERY RHYMES 4 DEAD CHILDREN is up for pre-order. Let me screw with you. Come on.

#2- It's also been genetically engineered for Digital consumption.

#3- Sheldon Higdon, a talented mofo, let me guest blog on his page. Get to reading already.

It's rainy (a nice day for drowning people.)

Check over your shoulder.

The Crowmother Giveaway and Snappy Pics!…

Lots of great stuff going on here, you beautiful fallen angels.

I received the Crowmother tees from The Bag and The Crow and I’m going to give them away to one lucky male and one lucky female. These shirts are very special, not only are they a limited batch, but my buddy Jassen made them in honor of his mother who introduced him to horror (and she now has cancer so send good energy their way. They can use that.)

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment about your biggest influence (whether a writer, parent, friend, make-believe pal, whatever). What about them has helped you so much? What have they done that’s brought you smiles and joy and enriched your life?

I’ll run the contest for two weeks from today then choose my favorite male and female answers (though I’m certain all of them will be touching, and funny and insightful.)

Don’t forget… Cool people spread the word. Good luck!

Also received my author copies for NURSERY RHYMES 4 DEAD CHILDREN. Here’s a pic of me holding my baby on my lap. Sweetness. I think there are 19 copies left. Let’s sell this thing out, yeah? It’s going to be worth money because I’m going to end up infamous.

The digital and paperback versions will be out soon as well! Hot damn. Buy one. You’ll love it or hate it. A huge thank you to those who have already snagged one of the collector copies! Party!

I also received my first 3 copies of Dark Discoveries 18which has one of my stories in it. Very neat. Here are a cover pic and the fiction TOC. Looking forward to reading this issue especially! I love being surrounded by stunning company.

Also, I set a world record for being annoying.

Cate Gardner also sold a novella to Delirium Books and I can’t wait to read it! That chica can seriously write some fantastic stories.

And my buddy Ben Eads has a story in Shroud 11 you should cuddle (it’ll grow hair on your chest.)

Now enter the contest! These tees are awesome! And you can share some love about someone who’s touched your life.

Mine would be my dad because he used to be a royal asshole but now he’s a damn fine man. Seldom do people make changes like that. He’s a good inspiration, has a good heart, and I’m proud of him. He does a lot of little things that mean a lot and he’s such a dork he makes me laugh.

Happy Mother's Day and all that

Happy Mother's Day to all you moms! From what I've seen in the movies being a mom isn't easy. *High five*

I've been crazy busy (and I'm going to continue to be for a while. No FB or anything else for me. Just no time when I'm working 60 hours a week, writing, reading, critting, and living in the sunlight) but I have a few new things interested parties could check out.

My latest guest blog is live on the fantastic Cate Gardner's website. Thanks, Cate!

***Let's not pull any punches***

And Read Horror did an interview with me. Thanks, Michael!

***A quick footnote in an annotated life... (or whatever the hell that means)***

My new novella IMMERSION is looking good. Just waiting on my buddy Shaun's crit and then I'll have it ready for my publisher.

Waiting to hear back from several short story markets.

NURSERY RHYMES 4 DEAD CHILDREN is shipping soon. I'm so excited. It'll be available in digital and paperback, too. Will take pics when I get my copies in.

Dark Discoveries 18
with one of my stories alongside work by Joe Lansdale, F. Paul Wilson, and other talented fellas is shipping. Grab a copy (unless you're one of the people I already told I've bought a copy for.)

I paid for the the Crowmother tees and will have a contest in a couple weeks when I get them in. One man and one woman are going to up their sexy vibe.

Lots of other stuff going on, but I don't have time to get into it all. Thanks for all the support and faith. I hope you're all well except for the jerks I don't like.
