Aloha, 2013! Aloha, 2014!

Well, this is my last blog post of 2013, so I’d better make sure it’s truly……actually, y’know, most of you won’t read this until 2014 anyway, so technically there’s no real pressure to make it amazingly awesome. 

Happy New Year, everyone! 

Two Weeks Left…

…in the Nightmares Kickstarter campaign! Artwork by four amazingly talented artists (Frank Walls, Alex McVey, Zach McCain, and Steven Gilberts) and stories by nineteen amazingly talented authors plus me! If you contribute to only one Kickstarter campaign before the end of 2013 or in the first few days of 2014, make it this one. I can personally assure you that the proceeds from this venture will go toward creating the book and not to prostitutes, heroin, and games of chance, unlike those other campaigns you were thinking about supporting.

Courage in the Lair of Satan

Last month, as part of a vacation to the Uhwarrie National Forest with Richard Dansky, Melinda Thielbar, and Lynne Hansen, I visited the legendary Devil’s Tramping Ground, a place in the woods where nothing grows, presumably because of Satan and stuff. Here is the evidence of my bravery…

It is worth getting a one-star review on Goodreads just for the message you get when you click on the review.

Favorites of 2013 (Updated)

In a prior post, I said that One Last Thing Before I Go by Jonathan Tropper was my favorite book of 2013, but that it was kind of a cheat because it was published in 2012. The paperback came out in 2013, so it wasn’t THAT much of a cheat, although since I read the hardcover edition that excuse doesn’t really work.

Anyway, yesterday I finished reading Truth in Advertising by John Kenney and can officially proclaim that to be my favorite book of 2013 that was actually published in 2013. Five stars out of five. If you read only one book published in 2013 between now and the end of 2013, make it that one. Or Stalking You Now. One of those two. 

Fear the Reaper Special

Fear the Reaper Special.

My Favorites of 2013

Favorite Book: One Last Thing Before I Go by Jonathan Tropper.

Favorite Movie: Found.

Favorite TV Show: Breaking Bad.

Favorite Album: The only album I bought in 2013 was Popular Music by Marc With A C. So my answer is Popular Music by Marc With A C. (Okay, technically my wife bought it. My answer stands.)

Also, One Last Thing Before I Go came out in 2012, but I read it in 2013, so I’m counting it even though it officially shouldn’t count.
