On Wednesday I’m heading off to Houston! The primary reason for the visit is that I’m spending all day Friday talking to school kids, dispensing advice intended to sabotage future writing careers, because I don’t need the competition. (“If an editor rejects your book, they’re just playing hard to get. Step up your game. Visit their home.”)
But the great big bonus is my event at the Alamo Drafthouse! It’s an “if you’re ever in Houston…” idea that was proposed to me several years ago and is finally happening! If you’re in the area and were thinking about going, only one seat remains!

Do you wish you were listening to my soothing, manly voice right now? Your dreams are about to come true! Katie Southard has started a podcast called Make Me Read Your Book, and I’m the guest in Episode VII.
This was recorded the morning before the Merrimack Valley Halloween Festival. My hotel had two fire alarms in the middle of the night, one around 2:00 AM and one around 4:00 PM, forcing all of the guests to march out into the cold and wait for the firefighters to arrive and assure us we weren’t all going to perish in flames. It was kind of amusing the first time; less so the second. But I want to assure you that at no point did I fall asleep during the recording of this podcast.

Meanwhile, we’re just over a week away from “An Evening With Jeff Strand” at the Alamo Drafthouse in Houston, with a double feature of two of my favorite movies (May and Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil) plus the world premiere of “Hostile.”
But if you want to hang out with me beforehand, I’ll be there four (!) hours before the movies begin! So if you’re in Houston or within, say, 500 miles of it, here’s the Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/839382983173507/
I don’t use this blog to wallow in tales of failure, but yesterday I tried to get some half-priced Valentine’s Day chocolate, and the supplies were completely decimated. There was nothing left. I should’ve gone earlier, but I didn’t know I was competing against a bunch of savages.
My trip to Houston isn’t far away! I’ll be sharing my “wisdom” with 100 students, then another 100 students, then 50 students, but you’re not invited to that because schools tend to frown upon strangers roaming the hallways. But “An Evening With Jeff Strand,” which was already an astounding value at $10 for a double feature of May and Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil, will now also feature the WORLD PREMIERE of “Hostile,” the short film I wrote, directed by Brett Kelly.
Tickets are still available! Get ’em HERE.
New supernatural horror novel coming soon! Cover by Lynne Hansen.
I’ve updated the following link from my Appearances page, since you can now buy tickets! I was surprised to see that they’ve billed it as “An Evening With Jeff Strand,” instead of just me lurking around while they showed a couple of great movies…
February 28. Houston, Texas. Alamo Drafthouse. I’ll be doing a booksigning at this legendary movie theater, which is known for its incredible events AND for throwing your ass out if you talk or text during the movie! I got to choose the double feature, so it’s gonna be May and Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil. Get your tickets now!
