Okay, those 5 people that actually read my ranting and parodies and junk have probably been wondering where i’ve been? heck, i was late for work one day (4hrs) and the church had sent 3 people out looking for me. Maybe thinking they’d find my dead corpse after brushing my teeth with a 12 gauge? who knows. but i’m okay.
What i have been doing? publishing! My newest book “Midnight Snacks: a horror anthology” has finally been published through CreateSpace.
Originally, i was going to have artist Joshua Hoffine do my cover for me. But it didn’t make economic sense to do so if i were to make a few bucks on this one. perhaps after i reach Stephen King status? haha. But do check out Mr. Hoffine’s work on his page, excellent visual artist and i’m in complete awe of his work!
So the cover i did myself. not as good as Josh’s work, but doable and affordable.
The book is a compilation of short horror stories i’ve written since age 14. I’ve been meaning to get these published, but you know how it is: click on computer, boot up pandora for mood music, open up manuscript, click a few words, then “hmmm, i wonder who’s on facebook?” grrrrr….in order to finish i had to disconnect my internet so i could get it done!
