I had wanted to write an actual blog post for the back half of this week, but it turns out that after a week of writing and pitching freelance articles, I just don’t have the brain power for anything too thinky. Normally when that happens I would just update you on how the book is … More Friday Links: Weeping Women, Horror-Writing Robots, and Ghostly Novels
It’s an oldie, but a goodie: back in 2007, before iPhones, before Paranormal Activity, before Marble Hornets, the video diary of Louise Paxton caused quite a stir on YouTube. Having just moved into her south London flat, Paxton initially started the vlog as a way to show off her living space and keep in touch with friends … More Stuff I Think You’ll Like: Louise is Missing
And we’re back! I’m still way behind on the novel, but I think this semi-hiatus has gone on long enough regardless. Posting will probably only happen on a weekly basis until the novel’s finished, though. ANyway, I thought I’d kick things back into gear with this new thing I can’t tear my eyeballs away … More Stuff I Think You’ll Like: Dear David
This was kind of a stressful week on the work side. Let’s perk up and celebrate the weekend with a highway sing-along: My plans for the next two days involve lots of yarn, Halloween crafts and putting up the decorations. Today will also be my last hurrah enjoying carbs and cheese as I eat up … More It’s Saturday! Let’s all sing for joy.
So NBC Universal is shutting down Television Without Pity (normally I’d link that, but I guess there’s really no point, since they won’t even be keeping an archive online). I haven’t actually been on that site in over a year (I think the last show for which I kept up with the recaps was Fringe), but … More Farewell, Tubey.
18 years ago today, I was working as a retail clerk at Dillard’s department store. I had just started my lunch break, and was passing through the electronics department on my way to the break room. Sales clerks and customers alike were standing around a big screen TV, staring in shock at scenes of chaos. … More 18 Years Ago
Well, I thought I had a spotlight author lined up for today, but he never gave me his info. So here are some corgis pulling a tiny sleigh. And while we’re at it, go ahead and have an open pimp thread.
IndieGoGo… IndieGoGo… IndieGo! Go! Go-oooh! (cue Japanese Speed Racer theme…) So I’ve mentioned here previously that I was planning to do a Kickstarter campaign to generate the funds I need to finalize my book cover, and also just to learn about the process so I can help other authors get it figured out. But after … More Dominion of the Damned on IndieGoGo – Put a Cover On It!
I’m combining the introduction of a new regular feature with the advent of Halloween and the upcoming Blog Hop I’ll be joining in next week. Introducing my Friday Five — which I know is not a new concept, but instead of five random things from the week, I’ll be posting my top (or, occasionally, bottom) … More Friday Five: Five Scariest Film Monsters (Blog Hop)
The long wait between new updates for Marble Hornets left me flailing about a few Sundays ago, scouring Youtube for a Slender Man fix (but not yet willing to commit to one of the other Slender Man series, because the last thing I needed was another thing to obsess over and eat up all my time). … More The Haunting of Sunshine Girl
