Family & Friends | Buttercup of Doom ep 04

BOD-ep04-familyfriends300Now Available at Project iRadio!

In this episode … I read a small portion of Waiting Out Winter, where I use friends as character fodder, and then explain why and how and the voices behind it in the Kiddie Pool. I rant about family, friends & facebook, and offer a way to keep them all. And of course, I leave you with an up—in the form of male nudity in Hollywood, and some wisdom (from Nana this week). Oh yeah, and there’s mammoths. Don’t ask.

Welcome to the End | Buttercup of Doom ep 01

BOD-ep01welcome

Now Available at Project iRadio!

In this episode I discuss this, smile about that, destroy the idea of that while I rant about that, and have a moment about that other thing… and while I may tell you what I will discuss in this spot for future episodes, I will not for this one. The virgin voyage should be a surprise.

I will tell you the following people/parties are involved on some level… with love and respect and, of course, some snark.

New Release: THE HATCH

hatch-400x600dpi72THE HATCH
(stand-alone sequel to “Waiting Out Winter”)

Nick Kontis and his remaining family members have survived winter—have outlived the threat of deadly infected flies—and are heading toward presumed safety. They quickly find all exit points blocked, the perimeter burned, and learn the flies were only the beginning, as Mother Nature has stepped in to correct mankind’s mistakes.

Her weapon of choice: spiders.

With thick webs covering the spring landscape, and lack of any communication leaving them on their own to guess whether or not the spiders are as lethal as the flies they’re eating, they make a new plan. Fleeing in a new direction they run into another party of survivors. And what was once a breakdown of society becomes an exercise in rebuilding.

They’ll need to find common ground and bond with the others, before winter arrives again. Before the spiders declare victory…
