In Which I “Go There”

September 20th, 2010 · 5:29 pm  →  September 2010

Yesterday, some heavy drama came across my desk. I tried to avoid it, but found that I couldn’t. There are only a few things that press my buttons: intolerance happens to be one of them. Sadly, I knew I was in trouble when I started writing a philosophical conversation between two characters in the story […]

New Review of The Queen of Crows

September 20th, 2010 · 9:35 am  →  News & New Releases

This morning, I woke up to a wonderful surprise. This review of THE QUEEN OF CROWS just went up at DriveThruHorror.com. Excellent story, great art, and I absolutely loved the idea of the “DVD Extra’s” like bonus features. This just screams “fearless author” to me, someone who’s not afraid to say “here’s my story, here’s […]

2010.09.17 The Modern Alchemist

September 17th, 2010 · 10:36 am  →  September 2010

When I checked in with you the last time, I talked about how I wanted to get behind what motivates William and some of the other Alchemists in this book. To do that, I wanted to live as one of them so I could better describe them without boring you to death with long diatribes […]

2010.09.03 Fear and Transformation

September 3rd, 2010 · 12:22 pm  →  September 2010

Things have been interesting lately, because ever since I stopped working the “day job” there’s been a lot of opportunities that have popped up, which have mostly been a lot of talk. Summer is one of those seasons where people are more focused on vacations than anything else. Summer, unfortunately for me, is very difficult […]

Oh, Wikipedia…

August 20th, 2010 · 9:43 am  →  August 2010 News & New Releases

Dreamt about The Law of Fours last night and several numbers. 14, 27 in particular. So, because I don’t have access to a library here, I hopped to Google and started poking around, which led me to the entry on Discordianism and others. Oh, Wikipedia.

Cthulhu Sez: Eat Your Link Salad

August 18th, 2010 · 5:16 pm  →  August 2010

Cthulhu here. So, I know that your first instinct may be to run away screaming, but instead I’m going to tell you to stick around. I promise I won’t eat you for at least five minutes, which should give you plenty of time to digest the link salad I’m about to provide you for your […]

NME Online Magazine and James Semple

August 18th, 2010 · 3:20 pm  →  Queen of Crows

This week has been “the” week for James Semple, who composed the spooky music for THE QUEEN OF CROWS e-book trailer. I’m working on an interview with him for FlamesRising.com, and in that interview he confirms that he has been selected to work on the film score for the upcoming horror flick HOUSE OF HELL. […]

2010.08.14 In Between Shows

August 14th, 2010 · 11:00 am  →  August 2010

I’m back from GenCon: Indy and am getting ready to help out with Wizard World: Chicago next weekend. GenCon was a learning experience this year; it was announced that I’m one of the developers for a card game based on the HACK/SLASH comic which is now published through Image. Between promoting the demo with Matt, […]

GenCon and the Crunchy Stuff

August 12th, 2010 · 10:56 am  →  August 2010

Over the next few weeks I’ll be obsessing about game mechanics and vampires: the good, the bad and the ugly. Matt picked up a new game for me called FORTUNE’S FOOL, which has a mechanic based on tarot cards. Of special interest to me is the chapter on magic “spells,” which ranges from fey magic […]
