Although I have been a super slacker as far as this blog is concerned, I’ve actually been super busy reviewing and interviewing more of your favourite authors and filmmakers than ever before. In fact, I’ve been so busy I haven’t had any focus left over to put time into this blog.
For one thing, I decided to make a book of my compile jorunalism of the past few years. That was amuch bigger endeaver than I anticipated.
I also started a newsletter as a more direct way to reach out to you and let you know what I’ve been working on and where you can find it.
Coincidentally, you can learn more about the book I’ve got launching next month and sign up for my newsletter all by clicking this link HERE and signing up. By signing up, you’ll not only get an exclusive audio interview with myself and Jack Ketchum, but you’ll also get free interview samples and review excerpts on top of everything else.
I hope to see you all THERE!
Here’s my most recent newsletter minus the free stuff:
Been longer than planned since my last newsletter went out. I didn’t intend such a delay, but time sometimes has a funny way of getting away from us, eh? I switched departments in the LTC I work at during the day. Instead of early mornings, I work until late evening/early night, however you want to look at it. It’s more hours and has taken some getting adjusted to. It’s a work in progress which has delayed some writing things I intended to have completed by now.
I’ve still managed to do some writing with the limited spare time I’ve managed to hunt down.
A long conversation with yours truly with Dave Rash and Dominic Stefano has gone live over at Cemetery Dance. Dave is the editor and heavy hitter who put together the book, From the Inner Mind To…the Outer Limits: Scripts Of Joseph Stefano (Volume 1), coming very soon from Gauntlet Press. Dominic is the son of iconic screen writer, Joseph Stefano who co-founded the Outer Limits with Leslie Stevens after having worked on the film, Psycho. You can check out that interview by clicking HERE.
I also sent some writing things to Rue Morgue regarding the feature film version of FRIED BARRY, a Ryan Kruger thing from South Africa. The film is hitting Shudder on May 7th. The review should be in the May/June issue of Rue Morgue magazine, and my interview with writer/director, Ryan Kruger, should be live on the Rue Morgue website around the same time. You don’t want to miss this one, folks. You cann watch the short movie that started it all HERE.
I also have two more book reviews completed that are awaiting my edits and final send off. Ravenous, by Ray Garton as well as The Necronomicon: A manual In Corpse Eating from Martin Llewellyn. The Ravenous review will be in the July/August issue of Rue Morgue magazine and the Necronomicon review will be going online with Cemetery Dance. You can expect interviews to follow each review respectively which will also be going online with Cemetery Dance.
Next up on the review radar is Chasing the Boogeyman, a metafictional tale from Richard Chizmar. I’ve only just started this one, but the review will eventually make its way into Rue Morgue magazine. Hopefully you can expect an author interview, but since I haven’t asked for one yet, that’s yet to be confirmed.
And, on top of it all, my Dark Bites Volume 1 non-fic book awaits my final edits. I’m hoping to put my focus back on the book next week once I finalize my two reviews and complete those. While I was hoping to have my book released this month, that has been pushed out until May, also my birthday month, so I suppose it all works out in a way.
That’s it for now. I hope you enjoy the free samples in this issue, taken from my conversation with Dave Rash and Dominic Stefano along with an excerpt from my review of the book. To save you from scrolling up again, you can enjoy the entire interview HERE.
Until next time, folks, stay hungry … stay dark.
