Social Media | Buttercup of Doom ep 15

BODep15-socialmedia300Available FREE on: Project iRadioiTunesStitcherAndroidTune-In
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)

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.

Don’t Miss Out

xmasemail‘Tis the season…

Now that Halloween is over, we can start talking about the fat man in the red suit, and all the kindles, iphones with kindle apps, and amazon gift cards he’s going to give away this year.

To help the elves bring you goodies, I’ll be doing a couple sales during the holiday season… if you don’t want to miss out on a sale day when it happens, make sure you sign up for my emailing list asap…

 

 

This will notify you, via email, of new blogs when posted and help keep you in the loop during the season of too much spam, xmas popups from hell, and the rest of the deluge no human can possibly keep up with. And of course, you should follow my author page on Facebook for more frequent updates!

Hope you had a great Halloween… now let’s get the turkey ready and stock up on wrapping paper.

Scares That Care Weekend

scaresthatcareScares That Care Weekend
June 27-29
at the Doubletree by Hilton
in Williambsburg, VA

Not your normal horror convention…

From the official website:

The difference between our convention and the others out there is simple: all of our proceeds will go to the families that need our assistance. “Scares That Care!” is a charitable organization, designed to bring together the fans of “all things spooky” in order to give back to the families that need it most by providing money, toys and other items to help sick children.

Delighted to be invited to be part of this movement, I will be attending the convention’s maiden voyage this weekend as a guest writer. You can find me at a table in the celebrity room where I will have the items listed below, otherwise my schedule is:

PANEL — FRIDAY   9:00pm
The More Things Change – It is said that writing and publishing have changed in the advent of the digital age. But has it really, or do the same perils and pitfalls still exist? Veteran authors Thomas Monteleone, Kelli Owen and Mary SanGiovanni are joined by newcomers Kristopher Rufty, Jonathan Janz, and Chris Jensen for a discussion on writing and selling horror in the era of Kindle. Moderated by Jacob Haddon.

READING — SATURDAY   1:30pm
Kelli Owen and Mary SanGiovanni – Reading and Q&A

And what I’ll have with me? For the first time, I will actually have my entire library with me.

Novels: Six Days, White Picket Prisons, Live Specimens
Novellas: Waiting Out Winter, The Neighborhood, Grave Wax, Survivor’s Guilt, Buried Memories, Crossroads, and my newest release, Deceiver
Collection: Black Bubbles
as well as a smattering of magazines, chaps, etc. including Fresh Blood chap with Bob Freeman & Dave Alexander, New Dawn with Robert Ford, Nate Southard and Maurice Broaddus, Dust/Divorcing The Dead dual chap with Brian Keene, and the Halloween edition of Shroud Magazine

And  brand spanking new, being unveiled at this convention, I will have: Posters!

Each of my novellas has been turned into a readable piece of artwork for your wall (limited con supplies). Posters measure 14×25.5″ with a gloss cover and UV coating. Click individual poster for larger view.
