First things first: a very Happy New Year to all my family and friends, real or imagined, electronic and otherwise. And congrats to everyone reading this for dodging the 2016 curse that claimed so many, famous and lesser known.
Just a couple of items to touch on today, starting with the latest entry in the Twisted Tails series. Twisted Tails IX: Wunderkind is in the running for the best anthology category in the Preditors & Editors Readers' Poll. As of this evening we were in 4th place, with just eleven days remaining in the voting process. I've been a part of the past three editions, and the series has a special place in my heart. And yet, it's a largely unheralded series that deserves more attention than it receives. So in case you've enjoyed one or more of the Twisted chronicles, or just would like to see 'the little anthology that could' get some well-deserved recognition, why not head on over and cast your vote?
Next on the docket, the second edition of my horror writing course looms on the horizon. The last couple of months have flown by, and we're less than three weeks away from starting back up for another go-around. Last time was a lot of fun, and the participants seemed to enjoy themselves while learning a thing or two in the process. For anyone living in the area who has a love of the genre and a desire to write, come on out and join me on the next dark journey. Classes start January 23rd, sign up here. I'll drop a reminder or two in the coming weeks.
Until next time,
