I’ve talked about it off and on in interviews and the like, but I cannot stress how big of an influence libraries have had on me. I still remember going into my first one as a kid. It was built into a former residence in a small Illinois town, the librarian still lived above it, … More Influences: Library Livin’
Yeah, I know that’s a lame title, but do you have any idea how impossible it is to come up with a clever Alice Cooper line that hasn’t been done a million times before? It would be like trying to come up with an original pun of my name or something. Alice Cooper is one … More The Malice of Alice
Okay, okay, we’ve gotten a little heavy in the past couple of posts. While I stand by all that, it’s time to lighten things up before I totally hole up in my feelings somewhere…After the past couple of weeks, I definitely need to remember some lighter stuff. So early in July, I broke down and … More Kickstart my Nightmare: Cooper & Crue
So I realized that in my ramblings about Evillecon and all that in March, I left out a huge part of that weekend. We all know I love books, but I really have a mad addiction to libraries. I’ve loved them ever since I was a kid. I still remember the very first library trip … More Coming Full Circle
It’s not often you get to actually interact or interview one of your inspirations, but I’m incredibly excited to have this opportunity tomorrow (Wednesday, July 9). Join us 9PM EST on The Star Chamber Show when we put G Tom Mac in the hot seat and ask him about his songwriting, his … More G Tom Mac on The Star Chamber Show!
It’s back it’s back it’s back! I’m so very excited to have Mooner back in print through Mocha Memoirs Press. Not only did it give me a chance to tighten up parts of the story, but I’ve also been able to include a glossary of Lumberjack Vocabulary, as well! For those who aren’t familiar with … More Available again! Mooner
I’m here, I swear! I wanted to pass around some links of places I visited at the end of the blog tour that I didn’t share yet, so that is today’s business! Exquisite Corpse – I did a guest post here about the enduring appeal of fairy tales. It’s an issue that’s near and dear … More More reviews and guest posts!
So while I’m out guest-posting and interviewing it up, here is another little tidbit from my resident (self-appointed) muse. I’m sorry. I’m really, incredibly sorry. For the uninitiated, Clyde is a character in my new book, Olde School. He’s a rather untraditional take on the fairy tale talking animal theme. It seems when Clyde is … More Clyde’s Corner: Popularity Problems
I’m really excited to host this particular tour. I absolutely love faeries and tales of their worlds and antics. I grew up on faerie tales, fell in love with Irish folktales in my tweens, and have consumed work by artists like Brian Froud with a fervor. It brings me great pleasure to tell you … More TCM Presents: A Chimerical World Anthology
Greetings to all! If you haven’t yet, be sure to check out my Release Party today at Bitten By Books!! I’ll be there throughout the day to hang out and answer questions about Olde School. In celebration, I thought I’d do something a little different. So often, people ask me about the writing process for … More Clyde’s Corner: The Beginning
