You’re Next! The movie… not you personally… seriously, just the movie.

Have you ever wondered, man, I wish they’d do a home invasion movie, horror style, that doesn’t suck? Yeah, me too. And guess what? There’s hope. You’re Next is just such a movie. Fun, suspenseful, gory kills, it has everything a horror fan could ask for! So, go watch it!

Listen here:

You’re Next podcast discussion.

And speaking of horror… have you read my latest book yet? The reviews are flying in! 10 ratings, 4.50 star… what are you waiting for? An invitation? Here you go:

Who are you reading, that, in your opinion, is a relatively unknown horror author? I’m looking for something new to read… and, on a side, self-promotional note… Murder Run reviews are coming in hot!

I love, like love 80’s horror. To be compared to that most glorious era of horror, is well, glorious!!

The reviews can be read on Goodreads, and in December, a review of Murder Run will be featured on http://gumshoereview.com/ so be sure to check that out.

But really, I am in need of new reading material. So if you know of any obscure, but compelling, horror writer’s let me know. I’ll read them, and if I like them, I’ll review them.

Pick up Murder Run for yourself here:

Thanks for supporting the little guy! Have a great week, and be kind to everyone!

Goodreads winners enjoy Murder Run! For all those that entered… thanks! I am so humbled by the interest! So, for today only, Murder Run is available for $0.99! Happy Halloween!

Get it here:

Goodreads Giveaway update, Halloween deal, Doll House sequel, My Self-Publishing Experiment, and tidying up, getting back on schedule…

See that little number there? How many people requesting? Just one shy of 500!? Ok, I’m blown away, and so grateful that so many people are interested in reading the chaotic words spilling from my brain. So, thank you!

Because of that interest, and my gratitude, I am offering a Halloween deal for Murder Run, the ebook! On that most sacred of thriller and horror lover days, my book will be available for $0.99! Yup.

So, if you happen to be one of those people who don’t win the giveaway, you can nab a copy at a discounted price. Happy Halloween!

Now, on to YouTube. I am almost finished with the project. After this week, I’ll add up all I spent, and calculate the results, and that should be the end of it… until my next book, the sequel to Doll House!

Here is the latest episode of MSPE:

After this, I’ll be getting back to my regular schedule. Working on the MOVIES OF THE DAMNED podcast, and the Doll House sequel. I am excited about this one. I’ve been canoodling over this one for some time now, and it’s percolated to perfection.

Thanks everyone. Really, this unknown author chasing a dream couldn’t be more happy or grateful for your continued support.

Have a great week. Be kind to everyone. Including yourself.

Another 5 stars for Murder Run, still a few days left to enter the Goodreads Giveaway, last episode of MPSE is up, and listen to the last episode of Movies of the Damned here…

NetGalley can do so much for an author. Murder Run just received its third review and it was a 5 star! The reviewer post her review on Goodreads, a site called Litsy, and another site called Librarything. Her review will reach into two more audience pools that, frankly, I wasn’t even aware of. Either way, Murder Run is shaping up to be the Halloween Read of 2020! Maybe…

And maybe you should enter the Giveaway? Doesn’t cost a thing…

Never underestimate the power of FREE, podcast may have to go bi-weekly, and a 3 mile a day from Monday to Friday challenge…

I started the Goodreads Giveaway on October the 8th, 2020. Since then, Murder Run’s to-read category jumped from 16 to 293! Holy cow! All I can say is… thanks!

Movies of the Damned!! may have to go to a bi-weekly upload. My work schedule (my real-life paying job) has changed and as such, it has been challenging to keep to the weekly schedule. Especially with the new book release and new YouTube channel (see below). We’ll see how it goes…

And because I feel like it, I’m going to run 3 miles a day for five days straight. I normally break up my cardio. I’ll ride my bike back and forth to work and when I have a day off work, I’ll go for a run. I’m just going to run this week. It is one of my favourite things to do and I’ll show all the readings from my Apple Watch, because, why not? I wonder how many total calories it will say I burned? I do weights too, but it separates that activity so I’ll be able to see what I burned just from the running. Not that the Apple Watch is accurate, but it is consistently inaccurate which allows a better-than-nothing guess, I suppose.

Have an excellent week. Be kind to everyone.

Another review for Murder Run (below), Episode 4 of MSPE released tomorrow, link for Episode 3 below, you know, if you wanna catch up!

Read this fun review from Lisa of Goodreads who got my book from… guess where… NetGalley!

My thanks to Dexter Publishing, John Hunt and Netgalley.
This dang book was exactly what I’ve come to expect from this author. It’s starts off as one thing, then gets booted arse over shoulders. I love that!
Kyle “the murderer” is almost someone to feel sorry for. Almost. He has no impulse control. I quickly wanted him to die! But, along comes a very messed up twist. “Hunt style!” I can’t say anything about that, because then I’d ruin all the messiness!
I believe Mr. Hunt is slightly mad. Mad, I tell you! Mad! I personally wouldn’t have it any other way!
Lisa – Goodreads 4/5 stars!

I love it!

And since Episode 4 is airing tomorrow evening, here is Episode 3!

Thanks for the support everyone! You’ve been an awesome part of the team!

Have a great week! Be kind to everyone!

I’m Thinking of Ending Things… Please do, end this movie, after like, twenty minutes in…

As you can infer, not a fan of this film… advertised as a horror, but definitely NOT! A horror that is….

So, the trailer promised something entirely different than what the movie delivered. I don’t even know what to say… great directing, stellar acting, but the story? The cohesion? The logic? Nope. A dream within a dream within a dream within a wait, what?

Have a great week. Be kind to everyone.

And Here We Go Again!!!

Book reveal time! What do you think? It took me some time to figure out a compelling cover. I hope it draws you in.

Here is the synopsis:

Kyle didn’t like being told what to do. When his brother demanded that he get himself home right now, no stopping, no passing GO and no collecting two-hundred dollars, the order didn’t sit well with him. So, he stopped at a bar in an unknown town. He met a girl. They drank, left, did drugs together, and when he awoke in the morning, her decapitated head lay in his lap. As he pieces together what happened the night before, a police cruiser rolls in behind him. From that moment, the chase is on. What Kyle doesn’t know is that he isn’t the only killer in town.

You can get a copy of it now here:

Check out my YouTube channel for a gander at episode one and how I put all this together on My Self-Publishing Experiment.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNhBpKt84IfEOvOoyboX1oA?view_as=subscriber

Let’s do this together, shall we?

Tomorrow will be episode one of my Self-Publishing journey, and I cover a lot of material in it. In a concise manner… I hope.

Any-hoo, I have to say, although it has been a lot of work so far, it has been rewarding, you know? A lot of swearing and shaking my fists at the computer monitor too, but when I figure it out and it’s ready to go, I’m happy about it.

All of this, this writing, podcasting, and YouTube’ing thing is my hobby. I don’t depend on it for an income, so there is a lot of freedom in that. There isn’t the fear of ruinous failure because I may fail, but it won’t ruin me. I’ll still pay my mortgage and my bills. I’m lucky enough to know I’ll always be okay. Still, I like to do well.

In the horror writing world, I’m the little guy. Stephen King, Josh Malerman, Graham Masterton, Anne Rice, and the list goes on, and on, but those guys, those names? They are the big guys. And they’ve earned it and continue to earn it and I for one will always buy their books. But the little guys? They need some love too. And I search for them and read them and review them and plug them as best I can when I think they deserve it.

So if you’ve read my book, or books, and have enjoyed them, I hope you tell other people about them. That’s all it takes. A suggestion from a friend, a review on Goodreads or Amazon, in time, those small gestures go a long way.

Do something for the little guy… tell someone about them. And when I mean them, I also mean me… lol.

On EPISODE ONE, I do the following:

  1. Reveal my newest book!
  2. Show the process of my site upgrade.
  3. Cover the costs so far and…
  4. Reveal the review requests letter I sent out to reviewers.

Hope you join me.

As for now, enjoy the introduction to this experiment.

My Self-Publishing Experiment

My fourth book is ready for release. And this time, I’m going it alone. Well, not really, I want you all to come along with me.

I am going to show everything I do to market, promote and get reviews for my book in the pre-launch stage. I’m going to show what I bought (ads, equipment) and share the costs of it all with you.

It all begins this Wednesday.

I hope to see you there.
