Well, I made it five days before breaking the New Year’s resolution to Blog every day. I’d intended to, but my ex-wife’s roof sprung a leak, so I didn’t get a chance yesterday. I also got no writing done yesterday, either. I would have written last night, but my youngest son had his first elementary school wrestling practice. These things are all more important than writing.
Although writing is important too, since it buys things like food and gasoline and electricity.
Folks are asking when the Kickstarter for THE NAUGHTY LIST — Paul Campion’s film adaptation of my short story “The Siqqusim Who Stole Christmas” — will start. In another week or two. Can’t be more specific than that. We’re ironing out some last minute things. In the meantime, please consider adding THE NAUGHTY LIST on Twitter and Facebook.
Fangoria has an exclusive bit of news regarding I’M DREAMING OF A WHITE DOOMSDAY, the other Christmas movie I’m involved in (as Executive Producer).
Here’s the poster.
I won’t be talking about this film much until after THE NAUGHTY LIST Kickstarter is completed (because I’m all too aware that the social media echo chamber can easily confuse the two if I’m not on point every time I say something).
SCARES THAT CARE WEEKEND III takes place next July. I am involved with the charity and organize the author guests and programming. The team has released this official trailer (please note, I was not involved in its production, so no trolling about my appearance in it).
SCARES THAT CARE is a wonderful convention and a wonderful cause. I hope you’ll consider joining myself, Weston Ochse, Yvonne Navarro, and other author guests soon to be announced, as well as the movie guests (more of them to be announced, as well). For details, go here.
Dave and I recorded the first new podcast episode of the year yesterday. It airs Thursday night. I reveal my picks for the Top Ten Books of 2015. Dave reveals his picks for the Top Five Albums of 2015. We also discuss Bone Tomahawk, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and remember both George Clayton Johnson and Lemmy. We also get bum rushed by some lumberjacks.
