FULL BLEED: IF I EXIST NOT HERE, THEN WHERE?

I know. I owe you some of that free hashtag relatable content. Didn't put up the collection of last week's interesting links. But hey, you're getting this for free, right? I mean free in that all it costs you is time and mental energy. And if you've been Extremely Online for any length of time, you know that it takes a damn lot of energy. Works those nerves down to the very last dendrite and then looks for more. Yeah, that Howling Pit can be internalized and that's probably the most insidious possible outcome. Then, as Dolores O'Riordian (RIP) said, it's in your head and we all know what the next line is, right? But that's the trap and the product. It has been for mass media ever since forev

FULL BLEED: THE MUSEUM IS FULL OF DEAD THINGS

I skipped out on ECCC last year. No particular reason, no big deal. Went pretty light on shows last year and that was in keeping with things. I was also trying to pull together a couple projects which just kinda crashed and burned and that’s not really encouraging. Of course, trying to show anyone new projects on the show floor is stupid. I mean, you can get it in front of your friends, but unless your friends are editors or publishers, not much traction is gonna come from it. Oh well.

FULL BLEED: BUT DON'T JUST SAY THAT YOU LOVE ME

I love this song 'cause it's like if the Perturbator and Isabella Goloversic got all loaded up on NyQuil and recorded a Motels track. It's the best thing. So, to the meat of this missive. Inspirational true story. I started writing longform fiction in 1991. Last year, the first novel with my name on it was published. Yeah, I've put books up on Amazon, novels, commentary, screaming in the face of the storm rants. They've sold tens. If you'd told me that this is where I'd be in 2019, I'm not sure I'd have had the strength to start clacking out on the keyboards the words "Denver slept restless like a child's fever." which indeed did open the first novel that I ever wrote. Unpublished. Rewritten

FULL BLEED: I LEFT MY THRONE A MILLION MILES AWAY

Getting ready to hit FOG Con (that's Friends of Genre) in Walnut Creek this weekend at the big I think Marriott hotel over there. Actually on a couple panels for it as well. Dig it. Friday 3/8 - 4:30 Reading. Probably from QUEEN OF NO TOMORROWS which I'll have for sale on the d/l. Saturday 3/9 - 3:00 Panel. "What Have You Been Reading?" and I'm sure my answers will not dovetail with anyone else's. That's just by nature. Maybe I'll crash a couple more? I dunno. More than a little bummed that I only got picked for those, but whaddya gonna do when you're the free entertainment, actually you're the entertainment that it costs money to become in terms of gas, hotel, food, admissions and energy.
