The Martini Bar of Horror was my last performance for the year, so I’m glad it went well. I was nervous about telling a story I hadn’t told in public before, but it felt like it went pretty well. Next time I tell it live, I will nail it.
The Strange California book reached its funding on Kickstarter finally, so I’ll let you know when the book will be available. It’s going to be a monster, absolutely huge.
I have been sitting on a really exciting announcement for about a month now, but hopefully I’ll get the contract very soon. I cannot wait to dive into this new project!
In the meantime, I’ve been guest-posting all over everywhere in the last couple months, so here’s the collection of links:
