Spring time in winter

Hey All,

I hope everyone is having a great week.  Things with me are well and life keeps chugging along.

It’s near perfect here in Los Angeles, like we’re heading into summer already. Which quite frankly is a bit terrifying since it’s early February and we should be drowning in rain and freezing our collective butts off…well what we consider freezing, but it’s all relative so don’t judge.

I’ll be heading to Las Vegas for a few days next week which honestly I’m a bit nervous about.  I’ve never been to Las Vegas sober and the last time I was there I was still drinking and as usual shit got crazy.

For the first time ever I’ll be staying in a hotel with no casino and far off the strip just to hedge my bets.  I’m going in taking care of business and getting the hell out pronto.

I’m quite happy and secure in my sobriety but why make things harder on myself by visiting old haunts and tempting fate.

Well let’s get on to the fun stuff.

I had the tremendous pleasure of sitting down with Ben and Keith of the Two Gay Geeks podcast recently.  We spent about an hour talking and it felt far less like an interview and more like a conversation you’d have with old friends.

We talked about my pulp novel The Geek and also nerded out on various topics from Dr. Who, to Blake’s 7, comic books and more.  It was a lot of fun and is available here for your listening pleasure http://tggeeks.com/blog/2016/02/08/tg-geeks-webcast-episode-59/

They also took the time to review my novel and quite frankly I’m a bit overwhelmed with how much they enjoyed it.  Many kind words from two very kind gents.  If you haven’t picked up a copy and would like to read their review it’s available here http://tggeeks.com/blog/2016/02/08/the-geek-violence-death-and-geeks-oh-my/

As for my usual shenanigans, there’s a brand new post up on my blog Reluctant Joy.  This week I have written the most incredible, politically correct, love story ever told.  It’s called 42.6 Shades of Tumblr and you can give it a read here http://bit.ly/rljywp

The current episode of Stuff N Stuff is up and available for download or streaming.  You can catch it on iTunes or go straight to the source at podbean.  There will be a new episode next week about things that should be mandatory in relationships, but if you’d like to spend a half-hour listening to two morons complain about toxic food that’s all right here http://bit.ly/1KOLDsH

I’m always stopping by goodreads where all the cool book nerds hang out so swing on by, ask a question and browse the virtual stacks http://bit.ly/1XpMF4k

My novel The Geek seems to be making readers happy which is great.  We’re just about out of first editions and will be going to a second printing which is very cool.  If you’d like to pick up a first edition paperback you can do so on amazon.  It’s of course also available as an ebook pretty much everywhere.  We’re also going to be expanding and making sure that the book is available as a paperback in both the UK and Canada due to the demand. http://amzn.to/1MwzPG6

I have a small collection of short stories that is exclusive to amazon called D’jinn and Other Stories.  It’s only 99 cents, but free with kindle unlimited.  HOWEVER!  The ebook will be free for everyone on Monday February 15th in honor of Presidents Day.  Why Presidents day?  Mainly so I can use the tagline “Hail to the Cheap”.  What?  That’s clever I don’t care what you think.  http://amzn.to/1MwzPG6

Of course you can follow me on twitter if you’re so inclined http://bit.ly/1YIWqZA

And don’t forget the old facebook http://bit.ly/fnbrjwp

Well thanks for stopping by.  I hope everyone has an excellent rest of the week and a super fun weekend.

See y’all next Wednesday.

Best,

Jonathan
