Straight from the source

I’ve just done something that I long put off. I have made it even easier for people to get access to my books. With all the hubbub about Amazon (and trust me, I don’t like their predatory practices anymore than you do) I decided to cut out the middle man.  By clicking the ‘Buy My … Continue reading Straight from...

I’ve just done something that I long put off. I have made it even easier for people to get access to my books. With all the hubbub about Amazon (and trust me, I don’t like their predatory practices anymore than you do) I decided to cut out the middle man.  By clicking the ‘Buy My Books Here’ button above, or clicking HERE, you can get my work straight from the source: ME.

Not only will this enable me to reach people who don’t want to deal with Amazon, it also helps me interact with my readers more. Plus I have the chance to sign and personalize copies if someone so chooses. Hell, I’ll put some scandalous shit in there if you ask me to.  It also give me a chance to actually make some money on my hard work. Indie authors don’t make squat selling through sites like Amazon, and buy straight from them gives more abilities for them to create.

With print books, it will be subject to stock on hand, but right now I have plenty in stock. Ebooks are forever and I can send it in what ever format you prefer. Either way, I got you covered if you’re looking for a good read.

Capitalistically yours,
-Your Weird Uncle Mick

A Very Halloween Special

Let’s face it, some of us love Halloween …excuse me…correction… 🎃LOVE 🎃 Hallow-fuckn’-ween! And the reason we love this chilly, spooky, pumpkin spiced holiday? All the Halloween cartoons!!

🎃LOVE 🎃 Hallow-fuckn’-ween!

And the reason we love this chilly, spooky, pumpkin spiced holiday? All the Halloween cartoons!! During the rest (read: boring) time of the year, if one of these gems popped up it was Christmas and your birthday, but full of bats and dancing skeletons. Never did we know what the weekly tv schedule so intimately than when the it was holiday cartoon time.

There was also the Halloween Episode™. The obligatory story line when the networks would trudge out the old organ (not that organ, perv) to make a completely non-spooky scene ‘halloweenish’. I’m pretty sure these episodes only creeped out the type of people who thought mayonnaise was spicy. (Yes it now occurs to me that there is actually spicy mayo, but we didn’t have it back in the 80’s. And if it was spicy, that meant it had been in the back of the fridge for waaaayyy too long.)

Anyway

Here are some Halloween cartoons for your amusement. Sit back, relax, grab your pumpkin spice popcorn, pour some pumpkin spice Jack in a pumpkin spice Coke, maybe have some pumpkin spice cocoa instead, and have some pumpkin spiced pumpkin spice and pumpkin spice your pumpkin spice while you pumpkin spice.

Halloweeny (snicker) Yours,
Your Weird Uncle Mick


If you aren’t aware of my love for Peanuts, then let it be known now. This is a goddamn masterpiece of the season.


A Busy Time

Hi all.  Are you ready for a busy month. I sure as hell am.

Hi all.  Are you ready for a busy month. I sure as hell am. September is going to be a jam-packed month for me.  Lots of activities going on and a few new opportunities opening up.

-First up, I have a new job, which is exciting. Same company but different department, and vastly different type of work. I’m ready for the change and feel good about it. It’ll be less time on my feet and I’m grateful for that alone. Plus it’s a different side of the business.

-Next up, Imagi-Con.  Imagi-con is going on in Easton, Pa on Sept 15. It’s a place where Cosplay and Pop culture collide. Pretty much a place to get your geek on, regardless what you geek about. This promises to be a fun day and a whole lot to do and see. Cosplay, steampunk, music, comics, books; you name it.  The plus is that Mel and I will be vending our wares (books, jewlery, fairy houses, etc).  All homemade, btw.   And to top it off, both Mel and I will be speaking on a panel. She will talk about costuming and effects make-up while I will talk about the writing process and inspiration. If you’re in the PA area or simply a Con enthusiast, I suggest getting yer tail over here on the 15th.

On the publishing front: I have a short story being published this month.
In Shadows & Light Anthology 2018, I have Eat The Poor. Shawna Platt puts out this anthology every year with a host of amazing stories. This year is no exception. I have been blessed to be included in multiple volumes, and honored to be published again this year.
Shadows & Light Anthology 2018: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1719964335/

I do have another story being published in October in Ink Stains 10, but we’ll talk more on that later.

-September is Bi Month (at least as far as I’m concerned) as we have Bi Visibility Day and Bi Awareness Week. For those of us in the Bi community, these are kind of big deals because it’s where we can highlight and and educate the community. There is a lot of erasure and misinformation going on and it’s important to dispel all that bullshit.
In that spirit, the proceeds for any sales of Pale Winter Sun will go to The Bicast.  Since PWS is a heavily Bi-centric YA novel, it seems not only fitting that it help support such an important project, but I want to give back to those that have helped me so much. The Bicast is a podcast for and by the Bi+ community. It’s been a mainstay for a number of years now and helps to elevate and educate. Just recently I co-hosted a show, after a long hiatus, which was really awesome. And don’t forget Our Stories, which is a project of the Bicast. It’s to collect and share experiences of the Bi+ communtiy, because we all have a story to share.

-I’m also slated to be interviewed for an episode of Deadman’s Tome with Jessi Dedman. I’ll give more on that as details come forth.

-Ohohoh, and last but not least, I will making a quick trip back home to Idaho to visit the family. It’s been a few years since I’ve been back so I’m excited, even if it’s a quick trip.  My initial target was to be there for my dad’s 70th birthday, but plans changed. Still, just being able to get up there and see everyone will be fantastic.

So there you go, my September dance card is kinda full, but that’s okay. Lots of fun and exciting stuff going on and I’m looking forward to it all.

Busily yours,
Your Weird Uncle Mick

I’ve mentioned it before, but ‘In Shadows Of The Wicked’ is a book full of music references. Mostly early Goth and Industrial, they become an integral part of the story. In the many forms this book took over the years, one thing that stayed was the love affair I have had with the music. Writing this reminded what drew me to the music in the first place; it was exciting and it scared me a little. In writing this book, it reminded me of that, and I gleefully delved even deeper into it.

With that being said, I couldn’t help myself and put together this image. Seems like lately I don’t need much of an excuse to put together these promo images. They are almost as fun and writing the damn story in the first place.   And just to help you all out, I put together a playlist on Youtube so you can listen to the referenced tunes while you read, for maximum atmosphere and creepiness.
