I can has publications?

Yes I can.

A week ago Friday morning I received payment for the script rights to my short story, Bloodsuckers. It has been adapted into a play along with three others from Necrotic Tissue magazine. Three Zombies and a Demon, by Roy C. Booth is now available from Stygian Publications. Of course, this is not my publication, it's Mr. Booth's, but nevertheless, I’m looking forward to seeing what he’s done with my quirky little story.

On September 1st, Aspen Mountain Press published Blob and the Sous-Chef and Other Stories, a collection of horror and dark humor short stories, written by yours truly. There are eleven stories in all, covering everything from zombies to ghosts to serial killers to monsters to vampires. For some reason, I forgot to include werewolves, so if hairy shapeshifters are your thing, you're out of luck with this book.

If you do happen to pick up a copy (and my creditors would love it if you do), I'd appreciate hearing what you have to say. For positive, complementary comments, feel free to append them to the comment section of this post. For negative slams, harping at me because I happened to have a character hiss a complete sentence one lousy time, send your comments here, where they will be given full attention.


  1. congrats!

    Oh sorry typo. That's "cong rats" big suckers too. I hope they eat your tail in your sleep. :P

    Really is cool though. I'm glad you are showing some positive results. Unlike me...everything I try falls into the abis. No matter what I do I just keep...

    *walks into a dark mumbling to himself*

  2. I highly recommend Blob and the Sous Chef, not just because I edited it. My favorite story in the collection is called "Skin - A Love Story".

  3. Wait. You're a writer?

  4. Jay, Lori, MB - Thanks. Preesh.

    Ferret - I know. Go figure.

  5. I am a current resident of All Seasons Mobile Home Park in Deerfield, Ohio. I've been fighting a bogus repair charge and a bogus criminal charge. All because of rotten lies told by Carol Foster and Vicki Gilpin of Modern Management Solutions (The management and billing company located in Ravenna, Ohio).

    Now, they are trying to aquire my paid off home free and clear so they can re-sell it for a huge profit. They have done this sort of thing before with the help of their attorney David Allen Sed. Its become part of their business model. Horrible, but true.

    If you want to know how all of this unfolded, please visit either of the following sites:

    You can read the entire backround so far, including my sworn statement filed with Portage County Municipal Court, view photos, and learn a few things about the rotten business practices of M.M.S. Something has to be done. This is what I've chosen to do.

  6. I'm glad you managed to find my blog, Jim, and I hope you felt better for posting here. Once you buy my book, all your problems should go away, and you'll no longer feel compelled to post your message on any miscellaneous site you happen to come across.

    You should also consider moving out of Ohio, because as you know, Ohio really sucks.
