‘Tis the Season

‘Tis the season for giving… and this year, I’m giving back to YOU. For (each and) every book of mine you buy this holiday season, you can enter to WIN one of three signed blu-ray/dvd combos of the breakout indy film I’m Dreaming of a White Doomsday.

If you’re a fan of my work, you’ll enjoy this film. This is not a bloody gore-fest. This is not an in-your-face horror movie. This is a post-apocalyptic nightmare of the quiet kind… the kind that don’t necessarily shake off when you wake up.

Written and directed by Mike Lombardo of Reel Splatter Productions, this little gem has been collecting nothing but rave reviews and film circuit laurels. If you haven’t seen it, you should, and here’s your chance to own a (FREE) signed copy.

Once, when, or after, you buy any Kelli Owen book, simply fill out the form below to be entered into the drawing. You may enter once per purchase, meaning—if you buy more than one book, fill out the form for each book, for multiple chances to win. It doesn’t matter if the book is for you or as a gift…

And if you’re looking for a signed copy at con prices—novels only $10, novellas $5—I’ve got the following inventory. Just email me your shopping list and we’ll go from there. (note: I only have 1 or 2 of most of these, so don’t delay).

 Teeth  Floaters  Wilted Lilies  Deceiver
 Live Specimens  Buried Memories  The Neighborhood  Forgotten
 White Picket Prisons  Black Bubbles  Gracie flip chap  ABCs coloring book*

Thank you for being a reader, a fan, and a supporter of the arts. As a token of my gratitude, I gladly offer up these three copies of I’m Dreaming of a White DoomsdayHappy Holidays!

 

 

Book purchase date must be between Nov 30 and Dec 31, 2018. Winners will be randomly drawn on January 1, 2019 (New Year’s Day). Blu-Ray/DVD is signed by cast and crew who were present at the signing at Lancaster’s FYE. Retail price $24.99 (and yes, I paid for these. these are not a promo on the part of the filmmaker, but rather just me… because I wanted to support the filmmaker, and give back to you!)

*The Atrocious Alphabet (no crayons) is on sale this month for $5.00


 

Six Toe Press interview

“Kelli Owen talks being a Nerdy Klutz, how that impacts her zombie apocalypse plan, and what a vampire story has to do with prejudice”

Thus is the headline for the interview I did with ToeSix press, now available on their site in issue #17.

Go ahead and read about my apocalypse and other fun answers to fun questions! Have followup questions? Feel free to ask them on the post here in the comment section below…

 

Interviews with Writers

I did this thing. An interview. There were questions, and I answered them. Now they’re out there, just sitting, waiting for someone to read them. Go on now… read them.

Interviews with writers: Kelli Owen 

 

And then I sat back and thought about it, and it all felt so familiar. So I did a little digging, and it turns out, I’ve been there before! Here’s the previous interview, from when it was posted under bookgoodies website (the two are attached), from several years ago.

Cobwebs

Wow, it got dusty in here! Sorry about that. But I’m back… let’s clear the cobwebs.

With the shutting down of the Buttercup of Doom podcast, I shall return to more regular posts on the website. After all, a girl still needs a platform to lament, right?

In the meantime, how about a quick update? (Sure, Kelli!) Hmm, I fear I might have been hanging out with myself for too long, I’m now answering myself when I type. Oh, and then speaking about it in third person. Why does the voiceover sound like me though? I want a better voice actor!  Okay, so I may have gone a bit stir crazy in here by myself. We’ll work that kink out as well. Where were we? Oh yeah… updates:

 

  • There’s a new facebook group for fans, a better way to have open conversations than some of the other options.
  • I have a short in the upcoming anthology Welcome to the Show, edited by Matt Hayward — very exciting premise and TOC in that one, check it out.
  • yes, I’m writing a vampire novel.
  • yes, I will have something fun and weird for Scares That Care Weekend this year (as well as the vampire novel) and it involves an artist

 

I think that covers it. Life was a bit tactile for a couple years, and while it changed some things (buh bye Buttercup), others will be returning (like the blog!). I’m here. I’m still me. You can’t get rid of me that easy…

Now, where’s the duster? I’ll clean up a little around here and then I need to get back to those fangs…

Hiding in the Corner

 

Just a quick note for those wondering about the silence of the blogs. It’s not truly quiet, it’s just been hiding behind a microphone for a while.

All my normal snark and sassiness, my opinions and epiphanies, still happen—they’re just shared on the podcast rather than written out on the blog like the old days.

But here’s the thing. The decision has been made to stop doing the podcast. My time needs to be focused elsewhere. I will be doing one final episode this summer, after I get all caught up on the other demands on my list, and then it will be gone. Finished. Over.

You can still listen to all of the aforementioned snark and sassiness, as the episodes will remain online for a while. Check out the Buttercup of Doom on the podcast page of the menu here, and listen while you can…

I may or may not snark on the blog as I have in the past. I will most likely post mini writing101 podcasts on my patreon page. And of course, I’ll be writing. Which is what I should have been doing the whole time. But things are shiny and sometimes we have to investigate them for a while and see what happens. I did. But now this writer, is returning to her regularly scheduled pipedream.
