A werewolf story — something I would normally choose to write, but…in doing research for another project, I came across the legend of the loup garou, the French take on the wolf-man.
And what was even more fun to me was that my hometown of Detroit had all kinds of loup garou stories from back in its early French, fur-trappin’ days.
I was inspired, and fortunately for me, there was an open call for stories for an anthology of werewolf tales. So off it went.
The book never happened. This is not an uncommon thing. So the story went into cold storage. For a good while too.
Then one of my writer buddies, Matthew Vaughn (check out The ADHD Vampire — it’s hilarious) and his brother decided to put together a fun movie monsters anthology and launch a new indie press at the same time (Red All Over Books). And it found a home.
JUST IN TIME FOR HALLOWEEN READING!
Plenty of good reading here, starring your favorite old school movie monsters. I hope you have a chance to check it out. At the time of this post, it’s ebook only, but print is on the way.
Check it out on Amazon: The Classics Never Die!
Trick or Treat!
Bonus points: What movie poster does the cover art remind you of? Hmmmm….
The literary maniacs over at Ghost Parachute have given me another opportunity to creep you out.
If you have a minute, check out my latest flash fiction. It’s a little something for the foodies.
Just a little bite.
I finally broke though and got a new piece published. I’m deep in my Tom Cave working on the next book, so I don’t know how many more I’ll have this year.
So savor the flavor and all that and check out my latest weird-out over at the young yet amazing lit mag, Ghost Parachute.
Last week, I moderated a panel on this subject at Full Sail University as a part of their Hall of Fame week.
I’ve sat on panels before, but this was by far the most immediately practical and useful. If you are interested in making it in the comics biz, I think you will get a lot out of it.
If you are into writer’s conferences and happen to be in the Orlando area this weekend, I invite you to come out to the OCLS Writer’s Conference.
Located at the downtown branch, this event is completely free and features many learning sessions for writers, including a World Building class by me!
Hope to see you there. For more information, see the Facebook event here.
