ConNooga 2023 was a great show as it always is. I had the pleasure to see some old friends, meet some new ones, and get face to face with the fans. To everyone that came by and said hi or picked up a book; thank you. You’re all what makes live events so fun.
It’s show week here at the Radioactive Rabbit Hole. I’ll be at ConNooga (www.connooga.com) this weekend (2/17-2/19) with my cover artists Mystic Reflections (@mysticreflections across social media platforms).
I’m on a horror panel Sunday at 11 discussing horror cinematic universes, what works and what doesn’t. If nothing else, feel free to come by and get a book, or just say hey.
I will once again be at ConNooga this year (February 17th – 19th). You can find me in the vendor room behind the big pile of books. I’m also going to be a guest for a discussion on Horror Cinematic Universes, that will be Sunday morning at 11AM.
ConNooga is a great con to kick off your year, and I hope to see you there.
Just a quick update, my second Richard Rex story is available for purchase on your Kindle or for free through Kindle Unlimited. My occult detective is back; this time, he’ll face an unquiet cemetery filled with flesh eating fiends.
To pick it up, click on the link below. If you decide to give it a read, please leave a review on Amazon, Goodreads, or wherever you are so inclined.
I asked Twitter a few weeks ago if I should write a story about a barbarian Santa Claus fighting Krampus. Well, the week of Christmas has arrived and as an early gift, I’ve written, edited, and built a cover for Kritz & the Krampus. At this time, it is only available on the Kindle for $.99.
Kritz Kringle is a mix of Santa Claus and Conan the Barbarian, which sounds weird and maybe it is. All I know is my beta readers said it was a lot of fun. You can read the synopsis below or pick up your copy here.
“A horned predator stalks the small folk that live at the top of the world. They whisper the name Krampus during the long hours of darkness. Desperate, they seek out a champion to defeat this monster. Kritz Kringle comes to their aid, dressed in red leathers with a war hammer in hand. If he can defeat this Krampus, what will he do about the dozens of them that are thirsting for blood?”
I’ve always enjoyed the sword & sorcery genre started by the late Robert E. Howard. I finally decided to try and write some.
I hope you enjoy. I’d also like to wish you the happiest of holiday seasons and brightest of new years. I’ll see you in 2022.
Hello faithful reader. I am sorry for my delinquent blogging. I was a benefits administrator for my previous employer when Covid hit and as you can imagine my life got busy. I also had a baby, who has swiftly turned into a toddler. I am still writing, but I’m still learning to find my way in this new dynamic. So, I appreciate your patience with me.
I know a lot of you are curious about the Winston & Baum short story collection that I teased in 2019. I have the stories written and edited. As some of you are very fond of Winston & Baum, it will come as no surprise that members of my own family are also fans. One of my biggest fans was my Dad. He would reread the series at least twice a year and always tell me which book he was on. I lost my father in July of 2020 (not to Covid, but it sucks all the same). As such, I have been dragging my feet on this one. It’s the first one he won’t be able to read, and I’ve had trouble with that. I do apologize to those who have so patiently waited for this book. I promise it will be released, and I will keep you all posted through this blog and my various social media accounts as to when. Sorry to spill into my personal life, but I felt you all deserve the truth.
Now, on to more upbeat news, I do have a new short story that came out last month. It is a mix of Arthurian Legend & the C’thulhu Mythos. I know it sounds a little weird, and I am nothing if not a little weird (just ask the voices in my head). It is exclusively available for Kindle here. Below is the cover. So, if you are so inclined give it a read and leave a review.
That’s all for now. I have a few more things in the works that I’ll update as they get closer to release. As always, thank you for your patience and support.
Friday 2/21/2020 Con Nooga will kick off. I will once again have a table adjoining my wife’s Mystic Reflection table, so please come by and say hi, pick up a book, buy some art, and let’s fanboy together.
I am also participating on several panels on the horror track. Below is my schedule.
12-12:50 Autism in Horror
1-2:50 Deadlines Commentary Recording – this is for the role as Jonesy the bartender that I played in this horror feature.
4-4:50 TN Horror News
7-7:50 Scream Queen – I will be a judge for the Scream Queen contest. If you think that you have what it takes to win the sash, sign up, show up, and prove it.
1-1:50 It Was the End of the World as We Knew It But We’re Still Here
Hey everybody, I wanted to let you faithful friends know what my fall schedule was looking like this year.
I will be at Dragoncon helping out in the Art Show over this coming Labor Day weekend. Feel free to drop by, I will have copies of the Winston & Baum steampunk adventure books with me.
My last appearance this year will be on Saturday, September 7th at Next Chapter Con in Ringold, GA. Don’t worry, I’ll have all my books with me there.
I am currently working on the Winston & Baum anthology. (I just got the first round of edits in) And will keep all of you guys informed on that progress. My wife and I are expecting our first child this October, so my schedule is going to be a little off, but we are hoping to be back next year with even more shows to get out and meet everyone.
