Cobwebs

Wow, it got dusty in here! Sorry about that. But I’m back… let’s clear the cobwebs.

With the shutting down of the Buttercup of Doom podcast, I shall return to more regular posts on the website. After all, a girl still needs a platform to lament, right?

In the meantime, how about a quick update? (Sure, Kelli!) Hmm, I fear I might have been hanging out with myself for too long, I’m now answering myself when I type. Oh, and then speaking about it in third person. Why does the voiceover sound like me though? I want a better voice actor!  Okay, so I may have gone a bit stir crazy in here by myself. We’ll work that kink out as well. Where were we? Oh yeah… updates:

 

  • There’s a new facebook group for fans, a better way to have open conversations than some of the other options.
  • I have a short in the upcoming anthology Welcome to the Show, edited by Matt Hayward — very exciting premise and TOC in that one, check it out.
  • yes, I’m writing a vampire novel.
  • yes, I will have something fun and weird for Scares That Care Weekend this year (as well as the vampire novel) and it involves an artist

 

I think that covers it. Life was a bit tactile for a couple years, and while it changed some things (buh bye Buttercup), others will be returning (like the blog!). I’m here. I’m still me. You can’t get rid of me that easy…

Now, where’s the duster? I’ll clean up a little around here and then I need to get back to those fangs…

Trick or Treat | Buttercup of Doom ep 12

Episode 12: Trick or Treat, aka The Kitchen Sink… as I cover all the little stuff not previously mentioned or big enough for a show of its own. From the history of Trick or Treating, “fun size” candy, and haunted houses, to decorations, traditions, and my refusal to mention the X(mas) word, making a strange “mmm-hmm” noise throughout whenever it intruded on my holiday (and later editing those mouth bleeps for real bleeps because well, they sounded horrible). Everything. Trick or Treating… tricks and treats, highs and lows, this one covers a LOT of ground.
