Thanks to everyone who submitted a question (or several) for this fun lil' project!

Without further ado, here's my son interviewing the main character of my novel UGLY AS SIN . . . ,

Fans of my novel UGLY AS SIN, I'm talkin' to you.  If you could ask Nick "The Widowmaker" Bullman anything, what would you ask him?

     Leave a comment.  Let's have some fun with this.  Who knows, the big guy might just answer . . . .

Meanwhile, if you haven't read UGLY AS SIN, what in the world are you waiting for?  Do you really wanna piss this guy off?!

150 Words About . . . "HONEYMOON"

Honeymoon holds few surprises if you know what it's about going in. But that's OK, because it does what it does extremely well. When our newly-married protagonists arrive at a remote cabin for their titular getaway, everything's sickeningly-sweet pet names and makin' love . . . until one night when the groom finds his bride in the woods wearing nothing but a dazed look on her face. Her nightgown turns up soon after, and it's covered in what looks like the slimy evidence of an illicit romp. In the days following her midnight stroll, the young lady starts acting more and more bizarre, and before long it seems she might no longer be the person her husband married. Something got inside of her out there in the woods. Now it wants out. Hubby's screwed. Honeymoon disturbed me to such an extent I'm calling it my favorite horror film of 2014.

LEMME READ TO YOU? ("The Hunted")

Enjoy this short-short, read by yours truly.

   * this is an older tale that a few of you may recognize but under a different title; I've changed it today 'cause I was never too crazy about that title     :)

Was in the mood to do some reading today, in preparation for the upcoming World Horror Convention.  I plan on participating as much as they'll allow me to on panels/signings/readings/etc.  It's been a few years, though, so I might be a bit rusty when it's time to do my thang . . . .

Thanks for letting me practice on YOU!  :)

Here's the Prologue to my novel UGLY AS SIN.  I decided to post a file that's 100% "live", warts and all, exactly like it'll sound at one of my readings (the only thing missing:  a roomful of your smiling faces, and my traditional one Jack-n'-Coke beforehand = liquid courage).  That means you'll hear at least one tongue-tied moment.  And maybe the occasional chime of a Facebook notification coming through on my laptop.

But it's free.

Hope you dig this.  If nothing else, I had fun with it.
