Chris Hsiang took the best picture of me performing ever. Thanks, Chris!

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:

I mused on the novel and original Exorcist movie and how they led to the Lost Angels novel: http://horror.org/halloween-haunts-exorcism-fun-profit-loren-rhoads/
