Read Or Write Anywhere!

Whoa! It’s contest time! The YA Chicks are running the Read Anywhere Write Anywhere contest, where YOU can win free books and other stuff! From May 22nd at 9:00 AM EST through May 31st at 11:00 PM EST.

Just visit fine author sites such as this one and find pictures of authors a) reading anywhere, or b) writing anywhere. YOUR job is to guess where these pictures were taken. If you’re right, you’ll be entered to win! Because we’re not monsters, each author will provide five clues.



1. This is a photograph of me with a large elephant. (Okay, some clues are less helpful than others….)

2. This is not a real elephant, as you can tell by the fact that I’m standing there with a serene expression, instead of running around screaming as I try to avoid being stomped by its mighty feet.

3. You can actually go on a tour inside of this elephant. Cool, huh? How often do you get to walk around inside of a giant elephant?

4. The book Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen, though one of my favorite books of all time, is unrelated to this picture. Sorry.

5. The elephant’s name rhymes with “You-See.” It’s a tourist attraction in a city where, if you play Monopoly, you’ll recognize many of the street names.

To enter your answer, head on over to http://www.yachicks.blogspot.com/!

The Kindle edition of my novella STALKING YOU NOW is currently only 99 cents! But for how much longer??? I don’t know. I was out of town and didn’t get to update my website when I first heard about this astonishing deal. But it won’t last much longer, so CLICK CLICK CLICK before it’s too late!

The English-language edition of BAD BRATWURST is only available in the White Noise Press chapbook, but there’s a German translation in the new edition of VISIONARIUM! Cannibalism comedy in two languages!


BAD BRATWURST – Available Now!

Yep, if you head on over to White Noise Press you can get your very own copy of my new chapbook, Bad Bratwurst.

Klaus has made the finest bratwurst in Germany for thirty years, but his shop has fallen upon hard times. He needs to try something new. Something innovative. Offer a product his customers can’t get anyplace else.

The answer may or may not involve human flesh. We’re not going to spoil it right here in the description. Sure, this is a tale of MIND-BENDING HORROR, so you’d be justified in thinking that bratwurst made from people may be somehow incorporated into the narrative, but maybe that’s not it. It could be something completely different.

Look, if you enjoy stories about cannibalism, we’re not going to steer you away. There may indeed be somebody eating meat that used to be a living, breathing human being. We won’t completely discount that possibility. We’re simply saying that it’s not the ONLY possibility.

Okay, fine, this story is about eating bratwurst made from human flesh. Are you happy?!?

From Jeff Strand, the author of PRESSURE, DWELLER, and DEAD CLOWN BARBECUE, comes the ultimate in cannibalism themed chapbooks. Don’t lick the pages. You don’t know what they used to be.
