Horror Writer Goes in Seach of Michigan Dogman…Will Said Author Return Alive?

In search of Dogman

Sometimes, writers hit a wall. It happens to the best of us. I won’t call it “writer’s block”. This frightening tale is an urban legend used to scare young  and developing storytellers. Anyone with a work ethic can find a way to put words on a computer screen. Maybe what a person writes is bad, but it can always be rewritten. There's no such thing as not being able to write at all.However, at some point, a writer comes to a point where the Well of Imagination from The Mystical Realm of Creati … [Read more...]

Horror Writers Association Admits Me Through Blood Ritual

Artists are very weird people. On one hand, we talk loudly at smart parties how we don't care if anyone "gets" our work. We claim we write for "its own sake" and our own personal satisfaction. That is a lie. Artists are artists because we want to communicate. We want to say something and have people respond. Further, there is a huge part of us that needs constant validation. The worst thing for an artist is that no one pays attention to our work. This is a painful thing to admit, but it's … [Read more...]

Here is a straightforward fact; Amazon is helping make my writing career through the huge success of 3 Gates of the Dead. I know there are a lot of people who beat the "anti-Amazon" drum with intense fervor. In truth, I used to be one of them until I realized the absolute hypocrisy of doing so.I'm not saying Amazon doesn't have some complicating things that go along with their business model. Others have written about it in a much more detailed and nuanced critique (Google it sometime). I … [Read more...]
