Scares That Care charity weekend event is something you should all do… I did. Several listeners went as well. And while we were there, we taped this episode… be afraid. Writing questions, tips and tricks no one tells you, some forehead flicking (Buda) and then a spew that started with customer service, flirted with problem solving, and wrapped everything back around in a ribbon of insanity and gave birth to this week’s hashtag: #conboobs. It was fun. And special thanks to those in attendance: Alicia, Armand, Chuck, Frank, Tom, Nick, Annalise, Jess, Shayla, Ava, Chad, Amber, Dave, and Chris.

Summer Vacation | Buttercup of Doom ep 48

A short and sweet episode for the 4th of July. Because, hey, I wanted to celebrate too. So a quick talk to cover: seasons in writing, summer vacation entertainment, and what to do with those children (who find themselves out of school with the whole world to explore and yet say they are “bored”). I have a kiddie pool, a hammock and a half-hour to spare. How about you?  (note: random clicks in background is firework noise and couldn’t be fixed. sorry)

Black Friday | Buttercup of Doom ep 17

BODep17-blackfridayAvailable FREE on: Project iRadioiTunesStitcherAndroidTune-In
This Week’s Rating: PG13 — buttercup ratings system info here

In this episode… I leave the origins of turkey day alone and simply express thanks instead. I laugh at the cartoons and invite you along. And then we dive into the evil, stupid, asinine event known as Black Friday. And I wrap it up with a touch of wisdom to bring my disgust and rage down.

Costumes | Buttercup of Doom ep 11

BODep11-costumes300Now Available at Project iRadio!

In this episode, Buttercup loses her mind a bit regarding the costumes offered during Halloween season… from how it affects your writing in the 101 Kiddie Pool, into her (yearly) Rant, and out with the Wisdom, costumes are all over this episode. From the sizes to the styles, from Disney to the Kardashians, she picks, pokes, whines, pisses and moans about costumes… and the funny for the week is a bunch of boys doing the same thing!

Halloween Hangover

kindlecountdown-sg

There’s candy left in the bowl to give away,
but no one knocking, begging, or dressed up anymore…
so I’ll give the goodies to all of you!

For a limited time (72 hours), Survivor’s Guilt will be on Kindle Countdown!

Regularly priced at $2.99… this special will offer the novella for 99¢ – $1.99, depending on how quickly you react!

Sale starts 11/13/14 and ends at midnight 11/15/14

SURVIVOR’S GUILT

Presumed dead in the tragedy of 9-11, Ryan Kolstad saw his missed job interview that morning as something other than a failure—he saw opportunity. Believing his family would be better off, he walked away.

Under the guise of a new identity, he’s spent a decade punishing those he deems unworthy of the loving families they take for granted. But Ryan suddenly finds himself questioning the lies and rules he’s come to live by… when he finds himself on the other side of judgement.


This novella was originally published as part of the Waking The Dead exclusive, limited edition collection of four novellas (from Thunderstorm — also included were Buried Memories, Crossroads and Grave Wax). This is not my normal subtle thriller style, nor is it in your face horror, this is brutal reality and often consider “crime thriller”.

If you didn’t grab Waking the Dead, are a collector of all editions, or simply don’t have this one, now’s your chance to grab it. Go ahead, treat yourself to one last sweet before you make that dentist appointment to undo the damage of October.

Available at Amazon

(apologies to those in other countries — kindle countdown is only for US stores, please go there to grab part of this deal!)
