This weekend, I will be attending Connooga in Chattanooga.
This is a great convention with lots of fun panels and vendors. I will be selling my books in their vendor room, alongside my wife and cover artist.
However, I also will be participating in a few of their panels. First, at 4:00PM on Friday, I will be on the Scary Story Time panel where several writers will tell true or fictional tales that will keep you up. Saturday at noon, I will be hosting a Phantasm 40 Year Retrospective. These are both going to be fun events that I hope you can stop by at. If not, please swing by my booth and say hello and pick up your copies of either the Winston & Baum steampunk adventure series or Friedkin’s Curse: A Werewolf Tale of Terror.
Hope to see you at Connooga this year.
Please keep checking back to see where else I will be appearing this year.
Hello! It is the Friday before Memorial Day here in the US, the official start of summer.
Which also means it is the start of summer reading season. I need something to read on the beach, in the mountains, on the plane, sitting on the deck of a cruise ship, to distract me from my kids, etc. Good news, dear friends. I have something that can help you with just that.
If you are looking for short stories or novels, horror or action, thrills and chills, then I ask you drop by my amazon author’s page and browse my work. You can get all of them on Kindle or the Kindle app on your mobile device, and all of my novels are available in physical form.
No matter what, I hope you all have a safe and fun summer. Keep checking back for more information on what I’m doing, and where I’ll be.
I released my latest short story Cabin for Rent at the end of last month. Below is the first review on Amazon.com for the story. Amazon user Ursula K. Raphael said the following in her 5-star review:
“Cabin For Rent by Seth Tucker features a creature not often portrayed in the horror genre. Tucker takes a risk by writing the story as a one-sided conversation, but the unusual POV and the accompanying flashbacks create the perfect level of suspense. The author has definitely added something captivating to the folklore of cursed cabins.”
Thanks for the review Ursula. To pick up your copy of Cabin for Rent click on the cover image below.
This post is going to differ from my previous panels as it is from the literary track. The topic of this panel is Outline or Doubtline and discusses the uses and techniques for outlining a story/novel/idea. It is a panel dedicated more to the technical side of writing.
I had the pleasure of sitting on this panel with author Gil Hough, author & podcaster Jim Hodgson, and writer of comics, video games, and novels, Dan Jolley. Please click on each of their names and check out their stuff. I assure you they are all immensely talented writers and have some good stuff out there for you.
And without further ado, below is the audio from our panel.
Once again, I was asked to be part of Scary Story Time at Connooga. This is a panel that is a lot of fun to attend or participate in. Several panelists will share either real encounters they have had with things that are unexplained or frightening and as you will here, it is an opportunity for some writers to share their recent efforts.
I was joined on this panel by Hope Holloway an actress, writer, and the dark princess of Dark Princess Theatre, and Chad Sides, Connooga’s horror director. We had a good time, and I hope that you enjoy listening to these tales of terror, tragedy, and spine-tingling fun.

We started this panel last year, and everyone had such a good time that they brought it back for another go-round. A fun panel discussing different elements of horror in scifi or scifi in horror, it’s tough to tell which is which honestly. Just listen and enjoy. I was joined on this panel by Alan Gilbreath, editor in chief of Dark Oak Press, Tim Green, operator of Ruby Falls Haunted Cavern, and Chad Sides, the Master of Horror for Connooga. Sit back and enjoy!
