Harry Potter and Playing Hooky

Hey all,

Thanks for stopping by.  There just don’t seem to be enough hours in the day to get everything done but hey I’m sure I’m not the only one with that problem.

The stress level that comes with hustling a novel, working on the next one, trying to make a living (while avoiding real work) and dealing with a Home Owners Association in a very small building is enough to drive a person mad.

I actually got sick again for a few days, which I’m not sure if it was due to stress messing with my immune system or simply the fact that the bugs this year are pretty virulent, at any rate I had to stop recording on the audio book for a few days until my head drained, but I do still think I’ll make the deadline, so that’s good.

Even though I’m working ridiculous hours I am taking tomorrow off, but for very good reason.  My cousin works for Warner Brothers and has invited me to come to the sneak peak of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter which opens next month at Universal Studios here in Los Angeles.

Evidently they’re closing the park down and it’s just going to be for Warner employees and their guests.  Not sure if that part is true but there is no way in hell I’m passing up an opportunity to get my nerd on, on that kind of scale so I’m taking the day off to let my Patronus run free…and probably eat a churro.

I did a really fun interview with Kelly Smith of Kelly Smith Book Reviews, so if you’re curious you can give that a read here http://bit.ly/1VcO5vV

My pulp novel The Geek got another good review on amazon and goodreads which is nice especially after last weeks review, so that makes me a little happier.  You can check it out on goodreads and pick up a paperback (in the USA, UK n Canada) on amazon and ebook everywhere else.  http://amzn.to/1MwzPG6  that’s a link to my amazon author page and will guide you to the book or my short story collection whichever you prefer, hey why not buy both because, well I can’t really think of a good reason but hey it’s worth a shot.

If you’re in the UK and are interested here’s a direct link to that page http://amzn.to/1NM5GUN

There’s a brand new podcast up today.  The bro-host Rob Palmer and I are talking aliens, extraterrestrials and space travel.  Lots of fun.  The mix is a bit high so sorry about that but it’s a pretty good conversation in my opinion.  So if you’re into that sort of thing you can check it out on iTunes or podbean http://bit.ly/1KOLDsH

We have said goodbye to reluctant joy this past week and while I’ll miss her, all of the past posts will always be available for your viewing pleasure should you so wish.  However there will be new stories and rants posted here as I consolidate over the next month.

Wanna hang on goodreads?  Sure ya do http://bit.ly/1XpMF4k

I’m a little nauseated typing this but I have in fact joined instagram…ugh but hey why not hang out there with me too https://www.instagram.com/pron_coktail/

And  of course there’s all the facebookery you can handle on facebook the official site for people who haven’t joined tumblr yet http://bit.ly/fnbrjwp

I’ve also started shooting some footage for my upcoming youtube channel so stay tuned for details about that.

Well everybody I’m off to go sit quietly in a corner and rock back and forth for while as I attempt to avoid a minor nervous breakdown.

Just kidding, I had the breakdown weeks ago.

Have a great week and super awesome weekend and I’ll see you all back here next week.

Best,

Jonathan
