I urge you all to go check out an old buddy o'mines author's page over at MuseItUpPublishing. I worked with Justin on a comic book a few years ago (that still has yet to see the light of day--but rumor has it that it's finally slated to print) and he's a super-talented writer with a love of horror. His new book The Dollmaker sounds awesome and makes me wish I thought of it first. So go check out the page and give the synopsis a read. After that, I'm sure you'll want to read the book.

Ah, the sweet sound of roofers hard at work this morning. It's been a rough time getting the money up for my new roof but it needed it pretty badly. I had a few bad leaks and probably plenty of unseen water damage in places that will no doubt show up years from now. My studio was on hold mostly due to the roof, so once this is done than I can start putting time into my studio and get my shit out of what will eventually be my son's second room. I already have the grandiose plans for the space but as usual a strict budget will dictate the outcome.

So over the last few days I have begun writing Stay Dead 2--not sure what the actual title will be as of yet, but it has begun. If you've read the first one, or any of the short stories, I'd like to hear what you like/dislike about the series and what you might want to see in this one. Some goals I'm hoping to achieve with it are; greater character development, better syntax, more world building and some semblance of a mythos.

So, my hard drive crashed the other day. I lost all my shit. Lost a lot of work. Lost some personal projects--two of which are still killing me; one, Water Rats, my novel-length follow up to Tunnel Rats which was practically done. And a kids book that had a cover and 9 out of the 20 pages finished. So pretty shitty. I spent a year writing Water Rats and it's all gone. I'm going to start re-writing it, but its going to be hard. I also lost all of my beer reviews that I was going to post. But I'm not too concerned about that. Well enough of this crap--Happy Turkey Day.
