So I have HUGE news. My short story JACOB has been picked as one of the top 100 stories in TNT’s contest over at wattpad.com.
If I win, TNT buys my story for 20 grand. If I make it to the top 10, I get 2 grand. I have never been this close to anything this big before and there are a lot of great stories in that batch of 100 so I really need some help here.
I need 33%vocal votes so that is just a small number of people to just log into it and vote. Please sign in with Facebook and vote for my story. I have rallied behind our horror community for years and now, I need all of your help back. If you would be so kind as to go over to https://www.wattpad.com/336674603-jacob-tnthorrorcontest-ja…
sign up and read my story and vote for me, damn, it would be a milestone in my life for sure and an achievement for our genre.
A little history about JACOB. The story was rejected 4 times before, but I always thought it was one of my best shorts so hopefully it gets a new life soon.
Thank you, everyone, and don’t be mad if I spam this everyday until the 6th! Voting ends on the 6th!
I’m leaving for Las Vegas to attend the fourth annual Killercon tomorrow so I am writing this update right now because I will be way too busy with some horror business, friends old and new and buffets, not particularly in that order.
I will be pitching my novella THE DREAD RIDE on Saturday and if it gets picked up, the release date will be set back to a later time. If it doesn’t get nabbed, it will be released by Decimation Publications as an eBook format of your choice at the end of the year and will be available on Amazon and Smashwords.com. I will keep everyone posted on that situation. In the mean time, I have plenty of copies of DISEMBODIED SECRETS for sale and if you can find me at Killercon I will sell the chap book personally to you! Only 75 of them were printed and Disembodied Secrets will never be released in chapbook format again so if you see me at the con – or anywhere else in Las Vegas- say hello and ask for a sample reading and if you like what you hear, you can buy it for $5.00 bucks.
If I am not too inebriated to read, that is! Remember, it’s my vacation as much as it is yours!
I cannot wait for this weekend! Wrote an audience participation story for the gross out contest on Saturday called THE GARGLER that I hope will go over unsmoothly, hehe, and I am bringing a box full of books for the mass signing of all my favorite authors! Not to mention all the buffets and beer bars! No zip lining though, sorry, Jeff! I’m a wee bit on the heavy side and I do not want that steel cable snapping on me… it could get ugly!
Wish me luck and I look forward to seeing and meeting everyone there. I will do a full write up with plenty of pictures as soon as I get back. And as for the reviews of some of the genre’s hottest authors and their works published from some of the best press’s around, they will resume as scheduled in October because after Killercon, I got to squeeze in a submission by the end of September due to the editors pinching the deadline back by a month! Oh the humanity! Oh the horror!
See you In Las Vegas!
