Major Website News

If you’re seeing this and haven’t noticed, let me update you about some changes happening and to come. I’ve decided to change the layout of the website, but I’m not stopping there. Going through my published posts I decided it was time to update many of them and organize many of them into better categories.

What does all that mean?

  • The Story-time series is getting refreshed and reformatted; more content coming.
  • Guest bloggers and interviews are being revamped. They’ll be a sub-category of The Word and being labeled as the Brief Words series. This will include the 15 for 15 Interviews.
  • The Veil is going to have new content. This series will be more active during Halloween.
  • Before the pandemic hit I was working on a speaking engagement, courses to be taught, and due to this the plan was to revamp much of The Word series. As no public grouping is allowed locally and currently due to social distancing I will simply revamp The Word series, re-organizing it, and making the content clearer for readers and writers seeking the posts as learnable content.
  • Blogger challenges and prompts will remain the same and organized the same.

It’s the middle of the night as I write this. Right now, the above mentioned is all I currently know I’ll be changing and updating. It’s enough to warrant and explanation as some blog posts will temporary disappear, posts will be re-written, re-formatted, and the look of the site is changing.

SFA – Last Day for Preorders

Today is a big day! It’s the last day to order Southern Fried Autopsies, it releases officially tomorrow!

A collection of horror stories and dark poetry. Out tomorrow on Amazon! Every purchase you will help us in raising money that will be donated to Feeding America.

Southern Fried Autopsies: An Anthology

Southern Fried…
Not necessarily an odd term if you live in the south or have visited the southern states of the US. In the south, we have monster trucks, lots of fishing, hunting, beaches, humidity, peaches, and a whole slew of stories that happened during the time of Northern Aggression. But what was Southern Fried? What does that really mean? It was once referred to as something, typically some kind of dead animal, that was battered, crispy, deep-fried in oil, and while tasted incredible, was artery clogging and blood pressure rising food. Not anymore.

Now Southern Fried has been attached to a set of autopsies and those files were placed in this incredible collection.
Short stories that will test your knowledge of the southern way of thinking, the southern charm, the hospitality, and the tales all by authors that have ties to the area, or still live here. Southern Fried Autopsies is sure to raise your levels to unsafe highs as you dive right in with both feet to the deep end.

Y’all come right on over, ya hear?

With contributions, stories, and poetry from P Mattern, Mark Slade, Kerry Alan Denney, DS Roland, P. Mattern, Rollin Jewett, L Bachman, SL Kerns, Edd Sowder, Patricia Stover, TJ Weeks, Thomas Vaughn, Cindy Johnson, DC Phillips, Kris Weeks, Olin Wish, John L Davis IV, Donna Owens, Veronica Smith, Mirren Hogan, David Johnson, and James Master.

TBS: Harvest Is Live

Harvest went live on September 4th, 2018. The republication of this work was a long time coming, but a short time prep. Just under two months ago, roughly a month, I was notified that my story was bumped up in the queue to be released.

You can buy this new edition of Harvest here. This is out in paperback and in digital formats.

Check out my Amazon page for all the works I’ve been either included in or have published for purchase.

The Blasphemer Series: Harvest Update

Originally, The Blasphemer Series was a straight indie published work, but it was announced late last year that this series had been picked up by Burning Willow Press, along with Human Ouija. This year, in January, the release of the first book Maxwell Demon occurred with fresh edits and a fresh cover.

It was thought, then that the series would release a book a year, so Harvest, the second book, wouldn’t be going out until January of next year, 2019, but as of this morning with a shift in the schedule, it will be releasing this year, in the second half of it. This comes as a happy surprise. As I gain more details they will be released so that you can stay up-to-date on all things happening.

 

 

Doubled Newsletter Released !

I didn’t have much to talk about in February to do a newsletter. The big news was in the previous month, January, with the re-release of Maxwell Demon and The Blasphemer Series as it was taken up by Burning Willow Press, LLC. News of it being signed has been blogged and shared across the social media-verse.

I decided because Febuarary was relatively quiet to combined what little went on in the March newsletter making it a two-month newsletter. In the one that released earlier today was information about the website that has had a makeover, some exclusives, and a more private blog post. One of the exclusives being a freebie copy of The Painting of Martel restricted to just the newsletter subscribers.

I had mentioned long ago that time to time I’d release short stories as newsletter download subscribe bonus. I did that this time. I hope in the future that more stick around to gain access to all that my newsletter has to offer. I am working on more things to reward my supporters.

Friday’s Newsletter – What’s Coming

Friday will deliver to the subscribers some exclusives. I don’t want to spoil any of the surprises for them, but there are two and a behind-the-scenes. One of the exclusives will not be open for a long time because of what it is, so those that take advantage of its offering should.

I didn’t have much going on last month, so I decided to combine March and February’s edition in one. The newsletter isn’t very big as is, this will not be any different. If there is anything you’d like to see, just leave a comment on this post and I’ll see what can be done.

Been Tinkering Again

I know in the Facebook Fanclub that I announced I would be using Blogger, but upon discovering some things, mainly my inability to get it to do things I thought it could, but it doesn’t, I decided to change it again. I know, it’s annoying, but it only affects the website.

I’m always trying my best to make things streamline and easiest for you the readers of my rambles to get around easy, access information quicker, and basically optimize. I changed things around on the website a bit as well. You can now see a new tab ‘Sneak Peek’, this is the new home for a page that more fully explains the newsletter. Where it is now was something very very important, the ‘contact’ page has been moved to live underneath the ‘Bio’ tab in a drop-down menu.
