So my head’s been down as I have a looming deadline that I have officially run out of ways to procrastinate from (except for me Tweeting). In the mean time, I probably ought to do some sort of writerly type update about things going on:

1) For those who missed my interview on the Funky Werepig podcast, it has been archived.

Is there a better way to spend your Sunday than with the Sinister Minister, MAURICE BROADDUS? A favorite of the critics, he mixes his strong beliefs with a love of horror! From his numerous publication and books to creating his own festival Mo-Con, the Werepig will do his best to fit it all into just 90 minutes!

2) Harlan County Horrors will be debuting later this year. It will kick off with a special signing event at The Morris Book Shop in Lexington, KY on October 24th from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. Team Broaddus will be making an appearance there. Here’s a sneak peak at the Table of Contents:

4) For those wondering how <-- this picture of me recounting a story might tie into any upcoming releases, you’ll have to wait a few more months for Morbid Curiosity Cures the Blues. -->
