Q&A

Patreon Perks

 

New and exciting content for Patreons… Live perks! We tested it. We approved it. Now let’s get this on the calendars and enjoy it!

Beginning in August,  I will be adding two LIVE events per month to my patreon:

Buttercup LIVE — this event will be on Tuesdays (near the middle of the month), because why not? Later in the evening so everyone can get home from work, we’re shooting for Tuesday, August 17th at 9pm EST. This first round will be open to ALL patreons of ANY level. After the initial event it will be closed to “Buttercup tier” and up.

Writing 101 — this event will be on Sundays (2nd half of the month), to allow a little longer for Q&A and workshopping. The first tentative round is set for Sunday, August 29th at 6pm EST. The topic here is 100% dependent on those in attendance and what they want to know or learn about. Based on the test-zoom we did, we will likely be discussing the pre-writing process of outlines and organization for this first meeting (*ahem* TJ). As with Buttercup LIVE, this event is open to ALL patreons of ANY level for this first round, then it will be available to anyone who is a “curious tier” or above.

If you are not a patreon, there’s still time! Go here to choose a tier and support my madness!

If you are a patreon, I will send a reminder email out and welcome any and all day, date, and time conversations, input, etc. either on that email, on the patreon post for these events, or across social media.

This is going to be fun and exciting and oh yeah… NOT recorded. If you’re not there, there will be no way to go back and watch. See you on the 17th!

 

 

Corona Con


“Life is What Happens To You While You’re Busy Making Other Plans…”

Coronavirus, or rather COVID-19, has disrupted life as well know it. Social distancing is keeping people from their jobs, their families, and well, their plans. Among those plans being changed and/or cancelled are a number of conventions, which is what sparked this idea…

You see, Scares That Care does a convention in August in Williamsburg, VA every year, and this year they were expanding with a spring convention in Wisconsin. Covid had other plans. And as soon as Wisconsin was cancelled (for the safety of everyone), those of us who were planning on attending thought maybe we could do something for the overall morale of con-goers and guests alike. Initially I thought it would be a short, cute, live Q&A… it’s turned into something else entirely.

Horror authors, reviewers, and even Joe Ripple himself from Scares that Care were on deck Saturday, April 18th for a LIVE streaming day full of readings, panels, giveaways, and more!

It was a smashing hit! Here’s what “Something Ghoulish” had to say about it.

The event was recorded and posted to youtube

Young, Stephen Kozeniewski, Aaron Dries, Bracken MacLeod, Brian Keene …with moderators: Sadie Hartman (MotherHorror of Nightworms), Bob Pastorella (This is Horror), Steve Pattee (Horror DNA), and Shane Keene (Ink Heist)

The schedule was planned as follows. Please note these were just guidelines, an order to the chaos. The actual times on the video are posted on the youtube page.

9:45 am — Kick Off: Joe Ripple of Scares That Care
10:00 am — Reading: Bob Ford

 3:30 pm — Panel: “Versatility and cross-genre” Brian Keene, Jonathan Janz, TBA, moderator: Shane Keene (of Ink Heist)
 4:00 pm — Reading: Bracken MacLeod

There is a finite amount of time and far too many people to include, so yes, it’s very very likely there will be a second one later this summer if cons continued to get cancelled…

Stay home, stay safe, and to quote George Romero, “Stay Scared!”
