I know… I’m sorry… I couldn’t resist. Could you, when Craig Mack served up such a perfect alley-oop like that? Don’t know what I’m talking about? Stop, don’t say it… I won’t make you admit that out loud. Here, listen, remember… it won’t take long.
So like Mack said, “I’m. Kicking. New. Flava. In your ear…”
Nighlight Podcast did a flipping amazing recording of my short story “Family Dinner”! It just went up, as did the interview Tonia Ransom, creator and executive producer of Nightlight, conducted with me. I am thrilled to have enjoyed such a riveting experience. There is truly nothing like listening to your story come to life. may thanks to the talented voice actors and editors!
The weather is getting nicer… that’s new flava.
MultiverseCon is starting to ramp up for whatever flavor of convention we’re going to have (see what I did there?) and that’s new flava.
I wrote a poem… no, two poems! That is definitely new flava (I haven’t written poetry in yeeaaaarrrrss!).
StokerCon is around the corner (May 20th!) and I’ll be speaking twice, once in my professorly voice and the other time in my author-type voice. New flava and it’s SWEET!
Oh, and I won BEST HORROR SCREENPLAY at Nova Film and Music Festival. That is 100% NEW FLAVA! I won for my screenplay Crescendo, which is an adaptation of my first novel of the same name. So many twists and turns in this story – I am so excited. I can’t wait to reintroduce Crescendo to you guys this summer… yeah… it’s being rereleased with a brand spanking new cover that is to die for! I can’t wait to show you… but I will have to wait… and so will you! 🙂
What are you reading? I am still reading Jeanne Adams’ Blood on the Altar because editing and life has gotten in the way a lot in the past few weeks. Still enjoying the fast-paced story, though. I am listening to Robert McCammon’s Swan Song. Super interesting story with a real flow to the descriptions. Mesmerizing work. I’m really enjoying it! I finished watching Prime’s Them and have moved on to Netflix’s The Serpent. Honestly, this show further solidifies the reason why I never considered backpacking. Chilling.
Working form home never seemed so sinister… (said in my best Vincent Price voice). Pre-Order today! This beauty comes out on May 4th!
And… I can’t show you the cover yet! I know, I know… but no. So enjoy that thing I drew. Looks like a pulsating mass of something you might see on Star Trek (Dammit, Jim!). But I can tell you what somebody just said about Crescendo:
Will be out this summer! While you’re waiting, check out the cool book trailer and learn more!
9-1-1 came back on TV the other night. That’s new flava for sure.
OK – that’s all for me this time around. Thanks for checking out my random musings! I’m sure I’ll have more for you in short order, because that’s how random musings go! 🙂
Until next time…
