Quick Hits

Butterfly WinterHad a great weekend with Eunice  and Greg Magill. Eunice is a terrific writer and former editor/reviewer for Dark Wisdom Magazine. I've known her for at least ten years. We're also Haunted Mansion alums.  Had a great time.

Created a website for Multiplex Fandango. I have to feed the hype machine for this, my only solo short story collection. It doesn't become available for pre-order until May. There will be come special edition copies available at world horror.

Butterfly Winter is doing awesomely. Got a couple of emails from people who love it, but strangely no reviews yet. Now how can I give out a special prize for being the first to review it if there are no reviews?

Scary Rednecks & Other Inbred Horrors
Last. Wife told me that Scary Rednecks got a five star review from a South African reader. Not that the five star isn't way cool, because it is. But a South African reader? WOW!  Talk about globalization.  Rednecks must be everywhereI'm just saying!
