six days

Drive-by Updates

…Just buzzing by with a handful of updates.

 

Sechs Tage (the German version/translation of Six Days)

Beautiful cover art and a wonderful translator to work with, it is sad to report, this book has been pulled from the publisher. It is no longer available through them and will not be in print in German for the foreseeable future (until it and the rest of the library find a new home). I do have a handful that I will be bringing to Scares That Care. This will be your last chance to snag a copy. I only have a couple, so it will be first-come-first-serve. If you are not going to the convention and are interested in one, you can purchase direct from me while supplies last—contact me for details.

 


Lost Highways: Dark Fictions from the Road anthology, edited by D. Alexander Ward, coming from Crystal Lake Publishing, will include my short story Jim’s Meats. Available through press online as of July 20th, and they will have a table in the dealer’s room at Scares That Care. For more information stalk the Facebook page.


Welcome to the Show anthology, edited by Matt Hayward, coming from Crystal Lake Publishing, includes my short story Open Mic Night. Available from press online as of August 3rd, and they will also have a table at Scares That Care. For more information check out the publisher’s Facebook page.


The next update will include all the details for the upcoming Scares That Care convention weekend, and of course, the recently finished vampire novel.

 

Sechs Tage

aka SIX DAYS…. NOW AVAILABLE IN GERMAN 🇩🇪 

Whether you actually speak German or are just a collector, here’s something new for the library…

Available in paperback or ebook, *ahem* I mean… Erhältlich in Taschenbuch und ebook, through amazon.de (for those in Germany/abroad) or direct from the publisher at Voodoo Press

As well as iTunes • amazon.com (for those in the USA/North America)

 


Jenny Schultz wakes trapped in a pitch-black basement with no recollection of how she got there. With no outside stimuli, Jenny naturally turns inward and revisits her guilt-ridden past, desperate to figure out which wronged person would be angry enough, evil enough, to do this to her.

She must survive her own demons, and then time itself when she finds remnants of previous captives—a plate, a tooth, a bone. Scratched hashmarks in the stone walls around her, leave her to wonder what happens next.

What happens after six days?


Praised by both Jack Ketchum and Ed Lee… a first novel you can’t miss!

 

 

Election 2016 | Buttercup of Doom ep 64

This week I finally cave and lament about the presidential election of 2016. In two days, the world will change forever… I bring up some points, asks some questions, and wonder why all my friends have gone batshit. #franger #doomed2016

NaNoWriMo 2016

nanowrimoDid you know Six Days was actually started, and the first 50k completed, during NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month for those unfamiliar with the acronym)? It was. And it’s that time of year again…

6days16-cover300I would like to wish all the participants the greatest of luck. Write everyday. Don’t panic. Don’t edit. Just write. Editing can come later, in December. For now, just write. A little before work, a little on lunch, a little after dinner, a lot on a day off, whatever you can squeeze in… because every little step it a step closer to your goal. And new reading material for me, so get to it!!

And while I am not officially participating in a tracking, overt manner, I’d still like to celebrate 2016’s NaNoWriMo… so for the month of November, I give you the ebook for SIX DAYS at a 75% discount when purchased through payhip (<— use that link). Simply enter the coupon code: NANOWRIMO16 when checking out.

Those of you doing NaNoWriMo, you can read it in December… right now you’ve got writing to do. Get to it, and again, good luck!

(and yes, that’s a new cover… there’s more new things coming as well — audiobook coming soon!)

Opinions | Buttercup of Doom ep 42

BODep42-opinionsAvailable FREE on: Project iRadioiTunesStitcherAndroidTune-In
and now available on Google Play Music

One for me, one for you, hell, let’s live big… opinions for everyone!! From how to deal with reviews to how to ignore the inbred, er, I mean, the uninformed stances which usually comes with a bullhorn. Editorials, politics, comedians, hell, even faith is nothing but opinion. So first we differentiate between fact, assumption and opinion, and then cover the types (tropes) of opinion, and then… Oh there’s just so much chewy goodness. And even a little commentary — because that’s yet another type of option, so I give you a link to “Don’t read the comments” by Just Between Us girls Allison Raskin and Gaby Dunn.

SIX DAYS

6days-72dpiNow available in paperback!

createspace      amazonSM

Jenny Schultz wakes trapped in a pitch-black basement with no recollection of how she got there. With no
outside stimuli, Jenny naturally turns inward and
revisits her guilt-ridden past, desperate to figure out which wronged person would be angry enough, evil enough, to do this to her.

She must survive her own demons, and then time itself when she finds remnants of previous captives-a plate, a tooth, a bone. Scratched hashmarks in the stone walls around her, leave her to wonder what happens next.

What happens after six days?

“This is one HELL of macabre, psychological mystery.Owen has a terrifying talent for pushing the reader’s buttons, one right after another, until you’re trapped in the same lightless, inescapable cloak of HORROR as the main character. One of the most suspenseful books I’ve read in long time, and a stellar debut.”
~ Edward Lee, author of HOUSE INFERNAL, BRIDES OF THE IMPALER and more…

“Kelli Owen has pulled off a kind of dark magic with this book and done so with an assurance rarely seen in a first novel.  She’s made us care deeply about a flawed character completely alone in the dark, a scary one-character play peopled with everyone she’s close to…which is no mean feat for any magician.  And the ending packs a hell of a wallop.”
~Jack Ketchum, author of THE GIRL NEXT DOOR, OFF SEASON, THE WOMAN and more…

Originally published by Thunderstorm Books (as part of the maiden set of their Maelstrom line), 250 Limited Signed copies.
