Thank you for being here. 😊

Stokercon is this weekend! I’ll do my best to link the livestream here. Tortured Willows made the 2021 Bram Stoker Awards® finalist Ballot for Superior Achievement in a Poetry Collection and “Horror Writers: Architects of Hope” made the finalist Ballot for Superior Achievement in Short Non-Fiction! TWO Finalists! THANK YOU!

Thank you everyone for the support!

Note: the BUILDING BOOKS class is being redeveloped due to a Papyrus Author update! When it’s ready I’ll release it as one video instead of weekly classes.

There’s a rumor going around that I tried to write Romance?!?

It’s true. Available now, a new episode of SOFT DEADLINES, my serialized paranormal romance novel on Kindle Vella. This is not a joke, I did write a paranormal romance for NANOWRIMO 2020 as a challenge.

About the story: Naomi is a woman waking up to realize life is passing her by. Duncan is a six foot tall blue incubus trying to get some rest. He finds it with Naomi, and possibly something more. If only they can get his ex to leave them alone. It’s hard to hide from a jealous succubus. Find it on Kindle Vella here.

LOOKING FOR SHISA? I don’t sell shisa keychains, just give them away. It’s my way to try and offset some of the negativity out there. If you’d like a shisa keychain, I’ll be happy to send one anywhere for postage. I just made a page for that here. I’d love to see what you do with your shisa. Share them with me on Facebook here.
