Today is my 40th birthday (that’s right, I’m just a few months older than Walt Disney World), and what a present I got this year! I’m thrilled to announce that Vagabondage Press Books has just picked up my first horror novel, BAD APPLE.
BAD APPLE will be released this year in print and electronic versions. We’re in the very early stages now, so I don’t have many more details, but I will keep you all posted—I know this book has been anticipated by many of you for a long time.
Vagabondage has been publishing The Battered Suitcase since 2008; BAD APPLE is part of the debut of their novel, novella, and novelette line. If you’d like more information about Vagabondage, visit their website: http://www.vagabondagepress.com/index.html
Recently, I was reading a LinkedIn Group discussion about whether or not movies are helpful inspiration to writers.
Movies have always inspired me. They’ve helped me with dialogue, characterization…and so much else. But mostly what I love? A good, sexy trailer. Today, Shaun Burris–The Ghostman to Nathan’s Demon Hunter (and let’s admit it, Nathan’s other half except for me)–made a couple of really awesome trailers for their paranormal radio program, The Ghostman and Demon Hunter Show.
Here they are (the links take you to YouTube). Enjoy!
