Virginia Beach has long been a place that people associate with beaches, nightlife, and a retreat from the stressors of the world; where the sun can shine down on you and your cares are washed away briefly by the ocean waves.

On May 31, 2019 those waves went dark with the tragic shooting of 16 innocent people – 12 fatality; the latest in a long line of senseless shootings in the world. Turning a place known for relaxation – Dark.

This book is to honor those who lost their lives in this this tragedy. All proceeds will be donated to the Virginia Beach Tragedy Fund c/o United Way South Hampton Roads.

In this episode… the Buttercup records LIVE on Periscope, while under the influence of sinus medications *cough cough Nyquil cough cough*. As such, the topics wander, her attention wanders, but in the end she covers Regifting, Best of (year-end) Lists, New Year’s Resolutions, The Packers, gives advice to newbies, and even manages to toss an f-bomb at the audience with this week’s funny video Tofucken (<– reason for R rating).

Barrell Full of Monkeys

aka, Catching up after a long weekend. Lots of exciting things have happened recently, and I’m going to lump them here but split them up elsewhere. ‘Cuz I can.

First up, if you’re local and get the York Sunday Paper there was a lovely write-up about me, my writing and my family (complete with fact-checking fubars of the funny kind). It’s not online but you can read it by clicking the image for a larger view.

Second, my online interview with Read Horror‘s Michael Wilson is now live. No need to locate a newspaper for this one. He asked some really fun questions, that took a bit of thought to answer. Of course, others were very easy. You should check it out!

Third, for those asking about paper versions of the out of print titles (Six Days and Waiting Out Winter), there are several on ebay at the moment. A few in the UK, a few in the US, all up for grabs.

Need a reason to go grab Waiting Out Winter? How about a new review? October County had all kinds of lovely things to say about this novella. And remember, if you’re not after the print version on ebay (mentioned above), this novella is now available for Kindle, and soon to be released as an ePub in the iTunes bookstore.

And just when I thought that was enough for the blog, F Paul Wilson emailed me to say this about Waiting Out Winter, “Excellent, Kelli. You created a genuine apocalyptic atmosphere that follows one around between readings.” And hell yeah, I was going to quote that =)

Then today, I see this tidbit…

Women seem to be writing the more innovative fantastica these days. Rhodi Hawk, Alex Sokolov, Mary Sangiovanni, Sarah Langan, Kelli Owen—they’re not recycling the same old tropes.

~ F. Paul Wilson, interviewed by The Accidental Author

Really? A double shot of F. Paul? Yeah, that will make any day better… and gives you another reason to get your hands on one of those copies, whether print from ebay or epub from Amazon.

And all that is definitely enough monkeys in to tip the barrel right over…
