Apex Sale, Dark Futures, and Stories

As part of their two weeks of Apex special, Apex Books is having a Halloween One Day Sale on Harlan County Horrors – 40% off today only!  Perfect for Halloween readings or any time you want to be creeped out, Harlan County Horrors, a regional based horror anthology by Apex Magazine submissions editor Mari Adkins, is what you need. Especially at today’s one day sale (Oct 15) of 40% off. Drop by the Apex Publications Store and get yours today. http://www.apexbookcompany.com/harlan-county-horrors/

This features—FEATURES, I say—my story “Trouble Among the Yearlings.”

Dark Futures: Tales of Dystopian SF is now available.  Not only does this anthology now has its own blog site  (http://darkfutures.wordpress.com/?s=future) – though I suspect someone is ghostwriting the blogs for the anthology, but it is also available from a number of online retailers.

This anthology features(!) my story “A Stone Cast into Stillness”.

Speaking of stories and interviews, The Perpetual Christian Newsletter reprints my story “Secret Gardens” and does an interview with me.  Check it out. What’s truly cool is that I was just listed as one of the 13 Astonishing Writers of Fantastika You Should Be Geeking Out Over in it, they reference my story “Secret Gardens.”

So have it!

Writerly Type Stuff

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1) For those who missed my interview on the Funky Werepig podcast, it has been archived.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

3) For a sampling of all sorts of Apex Books stuff, from Alethea Kontis’ Beauty and Dynamite to my own Orgy of Souls, there are all sorts of goodies here.

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. -->
