WHO GOT PARANORMAL EH?’s COVETED ZOMBIE BEAVER AWARDS THIS YEAR…AND A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

29 Dec

I had fun with new friends and old last month when Paranormal, Eh? radio out of Canada announced the winners of its coveted Zombie Beaver End of the Year Awards for 2011.

I was invited to call in, have a few laughs, hear about the great things coming up for friends like Frank Todaro of The Invisible World and Nicole and Angel of CT Soul Seekers…and make a very special announcement about what’s on my horizon for next year!

You can listen to the show, hear the winners (and a few jokes about the October snowstorm and blackout), and my special announcement—right here: http://wp.me/pIXRs-18L

ADVICE FOR THE NEW YEAR AT AMY MILES’ SELF-PUBLISHED AUTHORS SITE

4 Dec

Amy Miles, who runs the site Self-Published Authors, recently posted an interview in which I share advice for juggling writing time, how much or little investment should be made, and some other odds and ends that might be useful if you’re considering self publishing.

Following the interview is an excerpt from Skeletons in the Swimmin’ Hole—the title story from my most recent ghost story collection.

You can read it all here:
