Guest Blog – A Dream Within a Dream

My next guest blog appears at A Dream Within A Dream, and shares a 100% true (or 100% untrue; I forget) transcript of the historic conversation when I pitched her the idea for I Have A Bad Feeling About This.

COMING SOON: A guest blog with the true story.


Gave Up The Ghost – Cast Reading


Hey, what could this be? Why, it’s the cast reading my screenplay for “Gave Up The Ghost,” a short horror/comedy film that will be directed by Gregory Lamberson and included in the horror anthology Creepers. 

Starting at the left, moving clockwise, pictured are: Gregory Lamberson, Kaelin Lamberson, Sam Qualiana, Jessica Zwolak, Drew Bialy, Alexander Sloan McBryde, John R. Renna, and Paul McGinnis. Also pictured through the window is that delightful Buffalo, New York weather, which I will be braving in a couple of weeks when I travel up to the frozen north to hang out on the set. 

Check out the Creepers Facebook page for lots-o-updates on “Gave Up The Ghost” and the other three films included in the anthology! 




Guest Blog – The Crabby Reviewer

As promised, many of my blog entries this month will be directing you to blog entries on other sites. Today’s is at The Crabby Reviewer. Dan Reilly reviews a lot of comics, so my guest blog is “The Rise and Fall of a Comics Fan.” Check it out! 

Do You Have A Bad Feeling Yet…?

It seems kind of silly to devote a post to providing useful links to purchase my new novel, I Have A Bad Feeling About This, because of COURSE you’ve already got your copy. You were there as soon as the bookstore opened. You pushed some old lady out of the way, and she wasn’t even near the New Young Adult Releases shelf, or, if you’re going to be truly honest with yourself, taking up all that much room in the aisle. 

But maybe you want ANOTHER copy. If so, I figured I’d be a sweetheart and let you know that you can order it from Amazon or Barnes & Noble or Books-a-Million or Powell’s

Please buy it. If I don’t sell as many copies as Gone Girl, these guys are gonna break my thumbs. 

Publishers Weekly Book of the Week

Hey, Publishers Weekly has announced its picks for the Books of the Week of March 3rd…I wonder if there’s anything interesting on there…hmmm…scroll down a bit…OMG, it’s I Have A Bad Feeling About This!!! 

I wouldn’t make that up. Well, I probably would, but not in this particular instance. Here’s a handy verification link.


Movie Time!



Whoa! It’s the teaser poster for CREEPERS, a horror anthology movie, featuring adaptations of stories by Joe Lansdale, Edgar Allan Poe, Lafcadio Hearn, and, yes, me. (Otherwise I wouldn’t be posting this. Poe doesn’t need the free publicity.) 

The segment I wrote, “Gave Up The Ghost,” will be directed by Gregory “Slime City” Lamberson. It’s currently in pre-production and the cameras roll at the end of this month. I’ll be flying up to Buffalo, New York to be on the set, so if my fingers aren’t too numb from the bitter cold I’ll post an exciting set report with all the latest gossip. Is Lamberson an insane dictator on set? Will there be any hot off-screen romances? Will I run around wailing “My creative vision is being compromised! My creative vision is being compromised!”? Stay tuned for the answers!

In the meantime, check out the CREEPERS Facebook fan page:


Coming soon from Voodoo Press, it’s the German-language edition of The Sinister Mr. Corpse! Check out the insane cover:

BEWARE: Onslaught of Blog Entries

I’m way behind on this blog, due to a novella deadline (successfully met!) and plenty of other chaos. I’m going to try to post a few updates today, and then get back to my “more or less every day or so, sort of” blogging schedule.
