Now on Audiobook

The first one is finally done and ready, with several more right on its heels… that’s right, you can now enjoy Buried Memories on audio. Prefer audio? Here you go! Haven’t read it yet because you don’t have time? Happy commute! Know someone who loves audiobooks and a good dark story? Buried Memories…

Hypnotized to quit smoking after his dad is diagnosed with lung cancer, Ben Danski begins to dream about a childhood he doesn’t remember. The dreams become more frequent. Vivid. Frightening.

Further hypnosis reveals events he doesn’t want to believe, but as Ben decides to ignore them, his past finds him. Details trigger more than Ben bargains for, as both distant and recent memories are unblocked, and change his life forever…

Now brought to you through the audio talents of Jason Jewett. Buried Memories, currently available on Payhip (for only $6.00 choose that one!), Amazon, Audible, and coming soon to other audio retailers. Happy listening!!

I said, Ask Me Anything… they did. And I answered. From questions on raising a family to my opinions on extreme horror, from why podcasting to what I really think of The Horror Show with Brian Keene, from blood on the page to vices to con stories… and even the never spoken of political views of a wayward Buttercup. They asked. I answered. You get to listen to it! And remember, this is the edited version. The uncut, unedited, full-disclosure version is available only to my patreons.

It’s still Women in Horror month, and I’m still not going to follow protocol and list chicks for you to pay attention to, read/watch, stalk, etc. Nope. Instead, I’m going to talk to a woman behind the horror. The wife of a horror writer… But first: I’ll give you a touch of 101 advice passed to us using the form (see below), read an entry from a hijacked blog, and let you wonder what this picture has to do with all this… janzThen we’ll have some fun with Monica, wife of up-and-coming horror writer Jonathan Janz and talk about dirty secrets, convention habits, and that adult movie you didn’t know about, aka how to pronounce “horror”…  (note: we laughed talked for over 2 hours, I edited the shiznit out of it to get it down to an hour—forgive any abrupt subject changes)

This Week’s Rating: PG13 — buttercup ratings system info here

In this episode … I define and dissect social media— why we have it, how we use it, when to nuke it. I give a 101 on the various ways to advertise without spamming on the multitude of platforms, break down intention vs reality for the big three, look at the generational preferences, and have a thought or two on the red coffee cup.

(clarification note: the “at symbol” aka “@” is used for tagging people, rather than just “hashtagging” aka “#” ideas and general subjects)
