Everything is a mash-up

To continue pulling bits of wisdom and inspiration from different podcasts, I’d like spotlight something that was said on a recent episode of the Dead Robots’ Society. Started by the late Justin Macumber, the DRS podcast now boasts over 500 episodes in its back catalog. The current hosts are authors Terry Mixon and Paul E. Cooley, and the show is just as important to me now as it was when…

Don’t wait five minutes

I listen to a lot of podcasts. I actually subscribe to more than I have time to listen to, unfortunately, but there are some that I always check for updates and listen to right away.   One of those podcasts is Avengers Assemble!, which is part of the White Rocket Entertainment Network of podcasts. I’ve been rediscovering my love for comics, and Marvel’s Avengers have long been a favorite of…

(Un)dead tree edition coming soon

Monster Hunter for Hire (Supernatural Solutions: The Marc Temple Casefiles – Volume 1) is only available as an ebook . . . but that’s going to change soon. Right now, I’m experiencing the longest three-to-five business days I’ve known as a writer while I wait for a proof of Monster Hunter for Hire to hit my mailbox.

Halloween is a month-long celebration for me (more so than it normally is year round!), and once the annual HP Lovecraft Film Festival and CthulhuCon kicks off the first weekend of October, this monster kid goes into full Halloween Kid mode. What does that mean? It means I…

Strange Aeons #23 – Available for Pre-Order

At last year’s HP Lovecraft Film Festival & CthulhuCon, I was approached by a couple of regular Lurkers at the festival – Rick Tillman and Kelly Young. I’ve known them both a long time (if I remember correctly, they made their HPLFF debut the same year I did . . . maybe . . . ?), and I consider them friends. I also consider them incredibly talented. Not only have…

Same old goals, new approach

I think it’s pretty obvious I haven’t updated this page in quite some time. I’m going to change that, if for no other reason other than I need to put some systems in place that will keep me accountable. The last time I posted anything here was in February 2017, and, wow, my life has definitely changed in quite a few ways in just a year-and-a-half. I’m now unemployed (not…
