Howdy All and thanks for swinging by the mothership.
As things mellow out around here and I get more into a rhythm again the updates will become more regular, which is good…I assume.
This week however I’m running around like a crazy person getting ready for Phoenix Fan Fest in Phoenix, Arizona.
I’ll be there promoting the upcoming release of the long delayed audio version of my pulp novel The Geek as well as new releases for 2017.
I’m also looking forward to catching up and hanging out with the Two Gay Geeks themselves Ben and Keith who are two of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet and have just scary, encyclopedic knowledge of all things sci-fi, fantasy, comics and general geeky goodness.
Plus I have been told there is either a damn good Chinese or Mexican meal in my future when we hang and there are few things on this planet better than sharing a good meal with good friends.
As I continue to adjust to this new world of media platforms I’m making some big moves toward becoming my own self contained colony of product. This includes starting my own media company for all future projects in 2017 and beyond, but more on that as we approach the new year.
I’m not innovating anything really but following in the steps and attempting to copy those whom I admire like Felicia Day, Chris Hardwick and Philip DeFranco.
Basically in order to survive (and hopefully thrive) in the new entertainment industry landscape we must all become our own media empire.
While I am nowhere near empiric I am hoping to establish the aforementioned tiny little colony of my own making that will encompass both ebook, print and audio novels, my podcast, the new youtube channel and other creative ventures that will keep me mildly relevant as the yeas go on. Or until I can finally afford that spaceship I’ve had my eye on since I was 8 and go off to explore the galaxy.
If you see me in Phoenix come up and say hi, feel free to buy me a taco because tacos are the international symbol of love and understanding.
Or I may just buy you a taco as an attempted bribe to get you to read my novel.
Oh and that whole love and understanding crapola I mentioned too.
In the meantime why not go check out all my social media or catch up on some old podcasts. They’re pretty half-assed and craptacular but hey I know what my audience likes.
If you’re in the Los Angeles area or coming to visit why not head down to Skylight Books in Los Feliz. Skylight is a great independent bookstore and I’ve gotten some wonderful counter culture books there over the years. They also happen to be very supportive of indie writers which is why they carry The Geek.
Skylight is located at 1818 North Vermont Ave in Los Angeles (90027)
What’s really cool is that if you purchase my novel and tell them that I sent you, they’ll stare at you blankly, because honestly they have no idea who I am, so that could be fun.
So head on over and pick up a paperback copy of my novel and then walk up the street to Fred 62 which is a super tasty diner with amazing milk shakes. Fred 62 does not carry my book, but I’m letting that slide because the food is so good.
Holy Jebus! Links!
Take care folks, have a great weekend and I’ll see you all next week.
