Author Picks

Pimp my friends… the holiday edition!

Did you get gift cards for Christmas? Cash in your stocking? Bookstore vouchers? Wondering how to spend those? I got your back!

During December, I ran around social media asking all my author friends and followers this question:

“Which one of your books should someone experience? Not what’s new. Not what’s on sale. But if they could only have one of your books, which would you tell them was essential to their library?”

The following is their answers, aka, a lovely little shopping list for you!!

Hipsters | Buttercup of Doom ep 49

I don’t remember who suggested this topic, but it was both a blessing and a curse. My brain hurt a lot this week, but it’s definitely a good topic! After “deconstructing” their definition, applying a lesson of sorts to writing, shaking our heads at their silliness, we learn more about them than they seem to know. From claiming fashion that predates them to pretending their trend isn’t a trend, these Fight Club wannabes wouldn’t stand a chance against a real lumberjack and need to accept themselves for what they are… the latest Borg.

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. Become my patreon, support my crazy, get rewards and perks.

Heroes | Buttercup of Doom ep 33

BODep33-heroesAvailable FREE on: Project iRadioiTunesStitcherAndroidTune-In

Heroes in writing, on the internet, in the news, in hollywood. They’re everywhere. Or are they? Where have the heroes of past gone? Why are we left with losers rather than role models? I’ll tell you why… it’s our own fault!

Awards | Buttercup of Doom ep 26

BODep26-awardsAvailable FREE on: Project iRadioiTunesStitcherAndroidTune-In

This week we look at the silliness of award-season tantrums, the ridiculous behavior that comes with being nominated to be nominated to maybe be on the final ballot, and the irony of back stabbing instead of back patting when colleagues are honored. Yes, it’s award season… bring on the #OscarsSoWhite and the #AwardsSoPenis and, of course, as is apropos for a horror writer, the #stokers.
