Hey guys. Pretty excited about this.
So, I'm working on a new novel, and thought I'd tell you about this novel-writing workshop I'm going to be taking in January.
It's the Borderlands Bootcamp and the instructor is famed horror writer Peter Straub of Ghost Story fame, among other huge bestsellers. I gotta go all the way to Baltimore, MD for the class. A haul and a pain in the ass, but fuck it, I get to work on my novel with Peter Straub!
It's five days long, very very intensive. Pretty exclusive, you had to apply and be accepted. I got a discount because I'm a member of the Horror Writers Association.
I just sent them the first thirty pages of my manuscript, which I would have liked more time to polish. But, that's how deadlines go.

There's going to be a werewolf story contest coming up, so sharpen those fangs and pencils!!
So, I was wondering, if you were suddenly transformed into a blood-thirsty canine, what would you go for first?
Would you dig a hole into the neighbor's chicken shack?
Go for some larger game like deer, or the organic farmer's goats?
Or maybe take some kind of revenge on the that asshole that always pissed you off? Would there be enough of you left there, in that primal form, to find supplication?
Or would you just say, "Fuck it" and go for the infant in the new mother's arms? Oh, such a delectable and tasty treat to the hungry monster within.
Perhaps, the cheerleader who always turned you on, though you denied it.
Or that dorky redhead librarian with the…Read more >
It is with a heavy heart that I report the passing of the father of the modern zombie, George A. Romero.
I've been a huge fan for as long as I can even remember. Night of the Living Dead was a Halloween staple of my youth. Dawn of the Dead blew my head wide open as a teenager. I remember watching Day of the Dead in the movie theater and being so blown away. Touched by the vampire film Martin.
Please express your condolences and let us know what your favorite movie of his was.Read more >
