It’s been a while since I’ve posted any updates. I had a great time at YumaCon a couple weeks ago. I sold more books there than at any other convention. My bookmarks also sold very well. I still have two more conventions before the year is over. Later this month, I’ll be part of the vendor section of the Tucson TerrorFest. They tried this vendor convention part of the TerrorFest in 2019 and it was successful so they’re bringing it back. You can learn more details on their website about the film festival and the vendors. It’s happening on Oct 23 and 24 here in Tucson, AZ.
Also happening in Tucson, the TusCon Sci-Fi, Fantasy & Horror Convention is doing it’s 48th year. That’s a long time. I will have a table at that convention as well. I’ll be selling bookmarks and copies of my short horror stories collection The Morbid Museum. I’ll have a couple other items as well. Come by and say hi. I hope to have my first full length novel finished by the middle of next year so I can have it for sale at all the conventions next year. Of course, if you’re unable to make it to either of these events, you can always purchase my works online. I hope you’re all doing well and I hope to see some of you at the next convention.
You may have noticed I’m posting less on here. After posting one or two posts every day for over a year, I’ve decided to take a step back and focus on other things for a while. I’ll still try to post once a month. I will post an update or two while I’m at the Mad Monster Party Horror Convention next month. After I finish with the convention, I want to focus on finishing the first draft of my novel by the end of this year. I can easily finish sooner but I’m lazy and procrastinate a lot.
I also want to find new conventions to attend that don’t require a lot of travel on my part, so I can go to all the places. I’m writing more spooky poetry and once I have a surplus, I’ll start sharing things again. I plan to focus all my writing efforts on all my works in progress (which are all horror stories) and spooky poetry. That should keep me busy and satisfied. At some point I plan to continue some of my regular postings such as the book reviews and sharing my photography, but not for a while. I need a break. See you all next month.
I’ve taken a break from the usual stuff this month in celebration of National Poetry Month. Every post this month is poetry related. For those of you who have come to enjoy the Wacky Wednesdays, Coffee and Contemplation, and other postings, they will return in May. I feel I needed a break from the usual stuff. It’s rejuvenating. Every post on Saturday and Sunday this month is new, previously unpublished poetry. All these featured poems come from my newest collection of poetry which is coming April 13. To learn more, check out the Black Chaos Page. The eBook is available for pre-order and several platforms and the paperback will be available on April 13.
I also have some spontaneous projects coming. These sort of popped up without much planning and I’m trying to finish them before I lose momentum. I have more information as I get closer to completing them. Some of that includes more serial fiction. I have a couple stories in development. One I hope to have finished by the end of the month. Once I have a couple more ready and available, I’ll update you all on my personal online store and tell you about some of the new products I have. I’m getting a lot of great feedback on one of my new items and I hope to have a few more before the Summer. That’s all for now. The regularly scheduled blogging will continue in May.
