Publicly humiliated

So almost a month ago I recv’d an email from a blogger who said she saw the book trailer for The Darkness and wanted to know if she could request a paperback copy to review and use as a giveaway on her blog. Sure, I send it off.

About an hour ago I got the most hateful email I have ever gotten from anyone. It was the blogger who requested the book and she out of her mind saying that she does not review books that goes against the grain of her faith. I got to her blog and the 1st thing I see is a copy of The Darkness with pages ripped out burning in her fireplace. Her post was an uncensored version of the email she sent. She has over two thousand followers and there were a lot of comments to her post…

A lot of hateful, racially and religiously derogatory comments. I can not even begin to tell you how upset I am, I feel like I’ve been spit on my stomach hurts and I have been reduced to tears. I tried self-medicating by eating some chocolate cake but its not working because it doesn’t even taste good.
I can’t write anymore because I can’t stop shaking

Sorry for the absence...

January 22nd 2012 Today’s Horrorscope:
Snakes, scorpions, and spiders – these things are just a few of the dangerous things in life you need not worry about. Deranged surgeons soliciting for a few unsuspecting patients to perform experiments on, however…

How to survive a horror movie tip # 44:
Stay on the fucking trail!

Happy News Years and sorry for the absence. I’ve been busy, a lot has happened since the last time I touched base with you guys, the 1st this in Artificial Light is now available for purchase! It was released Friday the 13th January 2012…14 days later than the projected December deadline. There are a few little things that I wished I had done differnenty but as a whole I am really happy with the way it turned out.

I’m already starting to get some reviews and so far so good!

Remember when I lost my mind and accepted a writing challenge in the middle of the rework of Artificial? Well my story “The Christmas Wish” was accepted and the anthology by NorGus press is now available for purchase as well.

I also have a story in Static Movement’s anthology “Sowing The Seeds of Horror.”

I am gearing up to go on another book tour and well as attending two conventions in the next few months. In March I will be in Salt Lake City with Tori Titus as we make it rain at World Horror Con and then I will be at Crypticon in May with Yvette Montoya for some more weather working in the Pacific North West.

As far as writing goes I have already begun working on Shadows but I think I am going to take the rest of January of so that I can recenter myself and let the 3rd story open itself up to me.

I'll talk you guys all later, have a safe week ahead!
