I’m posting this before I forget to do so. I met R.B. Wood at NECON last month. We’ve been friends for a few years, but only recently met in person, and he invited me to submit something to his podcast. He’d just read THE SMILE FACTORY and I offered to read my story, “Human Resources.”
Episode #79 just went live, featuring my reading, along with several other cool stories. Check it out here.
I suppose the few of you who keep an eye on this thing have been wondering where I am. I admit a lot has happened in the last month or so, most of it on the personal side of things, and I’m not ready to talk about it yet. Erica and I just returned from Kentucky for a funeral, and I spent most of the time reflecting on things, my current state of mental health, what’s coming up in the near future, and how I intend to face it.
But before you ask–yeah, I’m okay. I wasn’t, but I’m getting there. That’s all I can say right now.
I’ll have some news on the writing front, hopefully soon. I can’t say anything publicly yet. It’s kind of a huge deal to me and I’m incredibly excited about it.
On the publishing front, the paperback edition of Anthony Rapino’s collection, GREETINGS FROM MOON HILL, will drop at the end of September. And I’m also busy putting the finishing touches on a pet project of mine which I unveiled a couple weeks ago on social media: A new paperback edition of THE KING IN YELLOW by Robert W. Chambers, with a new introduction by Joe Pulver and illustrations by Luke Spooner.
More details to follow on everything, in time.
