…that GHOUL will air on Chiller Friday, April 13th at 9pm. If you don’t get Chiller, call your local cable company and demand it. If they won’t accommodate you, watch it at a friend’s house (or even a complete stranger’s house) or wait for the eventual DVD and Blu-Ray release. If you haven’t yet read Ghoul, the paperback and audio book are on sale now.
WhoSay was down for much of the weekend, so I ended up posting premiere pics via Twitter — everything from shots of snow-covered scenery to Nolan and I hamming it up on the red carpet. I’ll re-post a few of them below.
Much of today will be spent traveling. Right now I’m sitting in the condo, staring out at the mountains while Mary, Mike, Mikey, and Dezm are still asleep. And I’m smiling. I’ve been writing professionally for a little over 15 years now, and it has taken me all over the United States and into Canada, and has provided me with an immeasurable number of good memories and special weekends, but this one — this weekend — trumps them all. The premiere itself went great. Standing room only and well-received by those in attendance — everyone from long-time readers like Dante Moriconi to Hollywood folks like Sean Young of Blade Runner and Ace Ventura fame. It was great to see Greg, Nolan, Jacob, Trevor, Andrew, and everyone else from the movie again, and to share our accomplishment together. And I even got some non-Ghoul work done — good news for the movie version of Dark Hollow and the possibility of a Dead Sea film. But the best part of the weekend for me was simply sharing it with people I love. So thanks to Mary SanGiovanni, Mike Oliveri, Michael T. Huyck, Mark ‘Dezm’ Sylva, and Tod and Suzin Clark for being there with me. That made all the difference in the world. Best Weekend Ever. “Literally.” (A private joke that will only be understood by the seven of us — or anyone else who has ever been trapped on a shuttle bus with Corbin Bernsen’s publicist and a marketing guy from Warner Brothers).
