Texas Library Association

This week I’ll be in Fort Worth for the Texas Library Association conference. If you’re also going to be at the TLA conference, I strongly encourage you to wander over to the Sourcebooks booth at 1:00 PM on Thursday, April 25th, where I will be signing copies of A Bad Day For Voodoo. They’re FREE, so even if you chuck your copy in the trash as soon as you round the corner, please stop by.

I’ll also be at the Texas Teens 4 Libraries event on Friday, from 5:00 to 8:00 PM. Author Mari Marcusi will be representing Sourcebooks with me, so hopefully she’ll be able to undo all of the damage I wreak upon the company as I bumble through the evening.

And if you’ve got any recommendations for good Fort Worth barbecue, please share them here!

The Perdition of Zephyr Hopkins

If most people were offered the choice of A) being chased by an axe-wielding psycho, or B) getting laid off from their job, they would wisely select option B. I mean, c’mon, nobody wants an axe-wielding psycho chasing them. It’s only common sense. However, if you asked most people what they were more worried about, they’d go with option A. (And axe-wielding psychos use this to their advantage, going after their unsuspecting victims while they are distracted by worries of being laid off.)

So though author Jesse S. Greever calls his novella The Perdition of Zephyr Hopkins “part horror story,” it doesn’t contain any traditional horror elements. It’s actually a novella about a guy who loses his job and doesn’t want to admit it to his wife. Oh, sure, he’ll have to tell her about it at some point, or, y’know, maybe he’ll find another job before their finances take a real hit and everything will be just fine.

SPOILER: Everything is not just fine.

It’s a story about a guy who has really screwed up, and has to continue to screw up because otherwise his wife will find out how badly he screwed up, in which case he’s totally screwed. And I had a nice little knot in my stomach while I was reading it. 

The Kindle edition is only 99 cents, so even if you’re unemployed and hiding it from your family and desperately trying to figure out how to make ends meet, it’s a bargain!

Cult Movie Mania Returns!

Sweeeeeet! The Cult Movie Mania Screaming Cinema series is returning to the Tampa Pitcher Show in Tampa, Florida. Last year this series played such flicks as Slime City Massacre, Chillerama, Bellflower, The Theatre Bizarre, Dear God No (where my wife had to walk out because even though she looked away from the screen, the sound effects in one scene were too gross), Father’s Day, and other messed up stuff.

This year’s lineup includes John Dies at the End, The Manson Family, Lost Faith, Excision, Bloody Bloody Bible Camp, and Cosmopolis. The series runs Friday nights at 10:30 PM, starting on April 26th. (Of course, I’ll be out of town for the Texas Library Association conference on April 26th, so have fun without me, jerks!) 

Check out the Cult Movie Mania website for all the details.

Oooooh, creepy! Here’s the cover for the German edition of Fangboyavailable now from Voodoo Press. (My original title for the novel was The Adventures of Fangboy, which is why this new title translates as Fangboy’s Adventure.)
