I’m probably gonna be cranky for a while.

Howdy all and happy Monday.  As usual there’s a lot of stuff going on here aboard the mother ship.

Some small news first.  I have been incredibly busy recently with pitching projects and the release of my novel The Geek and so I have had to make a bit of a tough choice regarding my time.

Starting today I will no longer be posting on my original fiction site Tumble and Drift.  Between working on screenplays, fleshing out the next couple of books, my podcast, Reluctant Joy and just life in general I had to choose one thing to cut so I could free up a little more time and that was the one I chose.

Having said that, I will be folding short stories into Reluctant Joy, my other blog.  So from now on Reluctant Joy will have original fiction as well as essays, rants and my usual uni-bomberesque ramblings.

Tumble and Drift will stay up for now and anyone curious, bored or looking for something to read should feel free to check it out http://bit.ly/tadsff

Over on Reluctant Joy this week I’ll be posting some micro-stories and through the month of October it will be mostly fiction.  I am working on some essays for the site but they probably wont go up until November.  You can check out Reluctant Joy here http://bit.ly/rljywp

Currently on the podcast I’m having a conversation with my buddy Tyler Uslan.  We talk about Virtual Reality, debate the best fast food burger in Los Angeles and Tyler is cool enough to candidly share with me what it’s like to have Autism. You can find Stuff & Stuff on iTunes or go directly to podbean here http://bit.ly/1KOLDsH

There’s a whole new show on Wednesday when my friend Rob Palmer stops by and we talk television, celebrity encounters and general stupidity.

I should warn everyone that for the next month I’m going to be on a very strict diet and up my workout routine so I can drop about 7 pounds. So expect me to be cranky, tired and hungry for the next 30 days. Grrrr!

My novel The Geek is getting some decent reviews and is available on amazon for paperback and also amazon, iTunes, goodreads and pretty much everywhere world wide for ebook so if you’d like to read an awesome story filled with mayhem, sex, vengeance and more mayhem check it out.  Here’s an amazon link http://amzn.to/1JUFjtH

Offering autographed copies is a great idea when you don't think you'll sell any books. Very grateful, just lazy.

And like and follow me on facebook because I have low self esteem and abandonment issues http://on.fb.me/1NX6vtH

I’m working on some cool stuff for the midweek update so check back in here Wednesday for some more shenanigans.

I hope everybody had a great weekend and has a better than average Monday.  Nothing too exceptional, I wouldn’t want the rest of your week to be a letdown.

Talk soon and thanks for stopping by.

Post no apocalypse update. Yay?

Well it’s Wednesday and the blood moon apocalypse never showed.  That’s the problem with doomsday prophecies.  No one’s ever right about them and if they were it’s really hard to brag about being right while defending yourself against the undead, UN Soldiers, Satan’s Army or whatever BS you said was going to happen.

On the plus side there is new stuff to be had.

Over on reluctant joy this week it’s a second free excerpt of my pulp novel The Geek available for your reading pleasure here: http://bit.ly/rljywp

If you like what you read go ahead and scroll down and read the first few chapters from last week that I posted and if you like that, then why not head on over to Amazon and pick up a copy.  It’s available in paperback and ebook from amazon.com and as an ebook on iTunes.  Here’s a handy link http://amzn.to/1JUFjtH

On iTunes if you search The Geek it’s like the second or third thing to come up.

Over on Tumble and Drift this week there’s another micro-story called Birth which I think you’ll enjoy. Here’s a link to that http://bit.ly/tadsff

Fresh out of the oven there’s a new episode of Stuff n Stuff streaming with my buddy Tyler about various nerdy things.  We also touch on politics, the Pope, debate the best fast food burger in Los Angeles and then Tyler spends the last 15 minutes or so sharing with me what it’s like living with autism.  Which I thought was very cool of him and also informative.

What?  Oh a link?  Sure here ya go http://bit.ly/1KOLDsH and like everything else in the world it too is available on iTunes.

Want to be offended, amused and bamboozled 140 characters at a time, well I can hook you up on the twitters and what nots http://bit.ly/1YIWqZA

And feel free to like and follow my facebook shenanigans here http://on.fb.me/1NX6vtH

I’m pretty excited about tomorrow night.  Not for professional reasons but because tomorrow is October 1st.  And that is awesome because my friends and I are heading into the city to experience the magic that is the Rifftrax crew work their mojo on the greatest bad movie of all time Miami Connection.

The RiffTrax crew are the mad genius’s behind Mystery Science Theatre 3000 a very awesome show that I still enjoy.

So needless to say Thursday night is going to be epic.

Unless of course there’s an apocalypse between now and then in which case, OHMYGOD!  We’re  in hell!  Is that Satan!? Zombies! Marauding gangs of syphilitic rock band roadies are terrorizing the country side! I’m on Fire and being eaten alive by mutant alien buffet seekers! I only have two bars on my cell phone! Aghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

But I’ll probably just see you all Monday, have a great rest of the week and weekend everybody.
