Back from WHC New Orleans

We’re back from the World Horror Convention (WHC), this year held in the hot and muggy city of New Orleans. Tonya and I enjoyed our trip, but we had to leave a day early due to an event at the Thornton Barnes & Noble. One of the things we did was venture out on a treasure hunt for our friend, Quincy J. Allen. He asked us to pick up a brick of Community Coffee with…

Some Adult Fare – Full-Metal Orgasm

I’m a fan of Heavy Metal magazine, particularly before the first movie came out. I also enjoy manga and anime, particularly Shirow Masamune’s work (Ghost in the Shell and Appleseed). Toss in a bit of Hajime Sorayama, crazy Bizarro-inspired violence and sex, and you have the essence of Full-Metal Orgasm. Full-Metal Orgasm is a sexy and intelligent adult fiction eMagazine for the digital age. Inspired by a multitude of media and figures such as Heavy…

Guest Blog at Armand Rosamilia’s Place

Amazon’s Shelfari

Just for fun, I decided to pop over to Shelfari to see what they have to offer. One of the best things Shelfari has is the ability to import from your Amazon purchasing history. I was rather shocked to see that I picked up 620 books in the last three years. True, most were freebies for my Kindle, but included in the list were 245 books that I actually purchased. I ended up adding a…

KillerCon 4 Story Competition

KillerCon, one of the premiere author conventions, holds several competitions for authors to show off their mad skillz.

Odd Places Reviews and Interviews

A few reviews popped up for my short story collection, Odd Places. Mandy DeGeit posted her review on her blog, Goodreads, and my Amazon page. She gave it a solid four stars. I wonder why so many people like my zombie cow story? She’s always funny, and I dubbed her “a force of nature in a tank top.” Hero Sandwich blogger Scott Slemmins usually writes about comic books and superheros, but he took the…

Inspiration From Reality Shows

Now that we have Netflix, Tonya (my better half) is watching every episode of Cake Boss. Of course, I’m writing, plotting, and planning my short stories and novels while this goofy show is playing in the background. After episode 16 of season 3, where they travel to Italy, it struck me that some reality shows may be useful for authors. If one ignores the silly scripted dialog, there’s a wealth of description waiting to be…
