So we all know I’m a music fan. I was fortunate enough to get to see Alice Cooper and Mötley Crüe earlier in the summer. In a nutshell: an amazing show. It also apparently unleashed my creative side in terrifying new ways. It also got me thinking. I live a lot of different types of … More Dr. Feelgood or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Crue
Admittedly I’ve felt at a crossroads lately. There’s been a lot of change going on. All of it has been necessary, not all of it has been easy, and it’s obviously brought about a lot of reflection and reminiscing. A few posts back I talked about my participation in the cult of libraries, which definitely … More Music and Me
Yep, we’re gearing up for a lot of talk about Kingdom City in the near future! First up is an online release party at Bitten By Books this Wed, May 21! If you want to kick it Olde School with me all day Wednesday, make sure you show up! If you want extra entries to … More Olde School Bitten By Books Release Party RSVP!
Yeah, pretty tables! Look at how official we are! I had a blast in Evansville. I got a chance to tour my university and see all the changes taking place before the con started. All I have to say is WOW. I mean WOW. And geez, where was all this classiness when I … More Evillecon!
Admittedly, I can be a fairly private person. I realize this isn’t always a good thing, but it’s the way I work. Not everything about me is everyone’s business, and I’ve tried to employ the iceberg metaphor in discussions and promotion: for every little bit I show, there’s a lot kept under the surface. Part … More Shall We Gather at the River
So want to peak at the new title? Of course you do! While it’s a little hard to explain Olde School as a whole (though I’ll try later on), there are some great character interactions. I think that’s probably my favorite part of writing this world…everyone is so unique and unexpected, and they tend to … More Troll vs. Housemaid – an Olde School excerpt!
I am so incredibly excited to announce that I’m officially a guest for Evillecon Anime Convention on March 28-30!! This is extra special for me, because I spent a good chunk of my growing up in Southern Indiana, and I’m an alumni of the University of Southern Indiana, which is in Evansville. I’m excited to … More SJ hits the road: Evillecon!
It is one of the most beautiful months of the year… I mean yeah, there’s all that love and stuff that’s part of February, but let’s focus on what this month is really about: women participating and being recognized as an important part of the horror genre. I’m going to repost some of the things … More Available now: The Grotesquerie
I’m incredibly behind, as is evident by the fact that I haven’t had a chance to talk about a really insightful set of interview questions I was given last month. Lily Byrne interviewed me at the end of October, and we talked about Lost in the Shadows, my background, my writing process, future projects, the … More Interviewed by Lily Byrne
So now that SH Roddey’s let the cat out of the bag, I guess I’ll say something, too… So there’s actually a secret project that’s been in the works for a few weeks now. Amid all the frustrations and workload of the summer, Susan and I both found ourselves in the position of having some … More Coming Soon: Lost in the Shadows
