First #1 on Amazon

Hey guys, just wanted to put this up before I forget – like my wife says, I’d forget my head if it wasn’t already bolted on.

My short story, THE FALLEN, recently reached #15 over on Amazon. Sure, looking at it now, you’ll see it sank deeper than the Bud in James Cameron’s classic Sci-Fi movie, The Abyss, but it was as high as 15. To have a book go that high, even if it was only for a few days, was an incredibly feeling.

It just goes to show that hard work, dedication to craft, and confidence in yourself can go a long way. I hope this will not be the only time my book reaches that high, but I’ll enjoy the moment while it lasts.

The Fallen is 99 cents or free if you have Kindle Unlimited. I really hope you will check it out and give it a read. It’s a lot of fun and packed full of my sick and twisted humor and horror my fan(s) have come to expect and love out of me.

So check it out!

First Time Speaking on A Panel

A couple weeks back, I was privileged to be a speaker at Wordfest 2019 with a ton of other excellent writers. And not just as a guest, but as an actual speaker – it was truly unbelievable. In one day, I was a guest on two panels:

“Demystifying the Writing Process”

“What I Wish I’d Known”

The first one, Demystifying, was all about the writing process. Not only was able to give advice to writers of various levels, I was also able to learn a lot from those on the panel. I’ll admit, during this one, I was a little nervous. I did more listening than I did actual speaker, but when I spoke, I did so with all the gusto of a Greek God.

Before speaking, I tried to plan my words and example carefully – I didn’t want to to say something that would make me look stupid in front of all my writing peers. I don’t think I did – but I suppose you would have to ask other panelist for their opinion.

The second one, which deal with hindsight, I did a lot better. I was more relaxed and on point, and being so, talked a lot more. I managed to impress a few people, who later approached me for booking speaking events at their schools, etc. It was pretty cool.

Right now, I’m waiting to see if I get to be one of the honored speakers at the Dallas Writers Conference in June. I applied for a few topics and have been waiting forever it seems a response. I’m either in or out (Pray for me).

Once I know, I’ll let you know.

In the meantime, I am not confirmed for the Frisco Book Fest on May 11th at the Frisco Public Library, from 1 to 5pm. I’m not sure who else will be there, but I know its a bunch of local illustrators and authors. I’m super excited – I think I’m one of the only few there that does horror and black humor works. I’m planning to use a black table cloth at my table a show off my horror Pop’s and toys to make me stand out more. So if you are in the area, please come by, purchase a book, and get a picture with this sexy beast!!!

Or not.

I do apologize for the lateness in posts recently – work has been super busy. But I’m going to try and get back on schedule for it moving forward.

I’m planning to talk about writer’s block, giving presentations and talks as a writer, and how to sell drugs in gender neutral bathrooms for fun and profit. In the meantime, stay sexy San Diego.

Rise of the Skywalker

Are you kidding me?

Someone kick me in the nuts please , because I think I’m dreaming. Did the new Star Wars trailer just come out and is it really called, Rise of the Skywalker?!

Way to spit in the face of the Star Wars fans Disney – I mean you killed fucking Luke in the last movie, after raping him in the ass with spiky cucumbers in the Last Jedi. I know it has its fans, but I’m not one of them. The Last Jedi can suck my stubby dick.

When the new Star Wars trailer dropped on Friday, I had no idea. I remember counting down the day for the Last Jedi trailer – I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next in the new Star Wars films having loved The Force Awakens. Sure it wasn’t a perfect film, but compared to the Last Jedi, its fucking Gone with the Wind!

But I watched the trailer and wasn’t surprised to find all the nuggets to get the Star Wars fan base excited. Flash of old ass Lando and then end the trailer with the Emperor’s laughter – boom, bang, got’em!

You didn’t get me.

First, Land does nothing for me. I know he’s in the movie just to put asses in seats, because Disney knows they need some good old fashioned nostalgia! You know what they should have done, have the original cast reunite in the first fucking movie!!! How cool would have been to see the original heroes back in black and kicking First Order ass? You can introduce new characters around them, not bring them in only to kill them off one by one.

When I heard the Emperor’s laugh, I cringed. I swear the only way they can market these movies and to drum up money after the Last Jedi is throw in everything to get the nerds wet.

Well I’m not biting Disney.

The Last Jedi killed this new trilogy for me personally and will probably pass on seeing this one on the big screen. The movie that has me most excited this year is a zombie, comedy called THE DEAD DON’T DIE. That looks good. So does the new Tarantino movie, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. Those movies can have my money – but Star Wars: Rise of the Skyfucker can fuck the hell off.

I’m Not Dead Yet

Hey guys, just letting you know that I’m still alive.

I know its been a short while since my last post, but there is some good reason for it – I was sick. Not dying, but still sick. I had a fever for a couple of days and when it finally cleared, I got super busy with work and a few other things.

I know, imagine that, a writer with a life outside of his basement!

I will be posting a longer article shortly – so please be patient for that. In the meantime, be happy, tonight is Wrestlemania 35!!!
