"Those down days when you felt so young / And everything seemed... You saw the people around you / Getting old / You wake up / The teenage yearn is gone for you / It happens to others / It happens all the time / Happy birthday to you"

48 is Great?
Friday marks my birthday. Again.

YEP, THIS WEEKEND, I turn 48 years old. I guess time flies when you're constantly staring at a computer screen!

Today I had lunch with a friend I haven't seen in a long time. We met back when I was 28... which also turns out to be the same year I started publishing fiction. It was great catching up but... damn... how did 20 years slip by so fast?

I won't get all melancholy about it though. This weekend is shaping up to be a fun one -- centered around catching up with friends and family. I'll be having dinner with my friend Jerry from Synapse Films on one night, with my friend Brad and his family on my actual birthday (at my beloved Hofbrauhaus!) and with my dad on Sunday. And in between... I'll be hanging out all day at a book table on Saturday talking with horror fans at the Indie Horror Film Festival. It's being held this year at Schurz High School on 3601 N. Milwaukee Ave. in Chicago, so if you're in the Chicago area, come on down and say hi Saturday!

Next weekend, I'll be returning to DanCon in Orland Park -- so if I don't see you this weekend, come on out to the Orland Civic Center next Sunday, March 23rd. It's going to be a blast!

Now on Amazon, B&N, Kobo...
It's... The .48 Sale!

I figured I'd have a little fun with the whole 48 thing, so I'm advertising a ".48" sale. I put my horror books that I personally have control over (most of my books are with other publishers) on sale this month at $1.48 or $2.48.  So if you don't have them yet, pick up Cage of Bones & Other Deadly Obsessions, Vigilantes of Love or Failure on sale for cheap at Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Smashwords and Amazon (sort of). Amazon has only adjusted the price of Vigilantes of Love so far, but hopefully the other two will follow. If you already have these books, please post a quick review about them on Amazon -- and help spread the word about the sale :-)  Here's how you can find them:

* Amazon
* B&N
* Kobo
* Smashwords


All Trade Paperbacks are 50% Off!

RIGHT NOW, all trade paperbacks at Samhain Publishing are 50% off.  If you love Real Horror Books? (I mean books made of paper, not bytes!) Then get over to the Samhain Publishing store! I don't know how long the sale is going to last, but this is cheaper than I can normally buy the books myself, going directly through the publisher.

You can get copies of my novels Violet Eyes or NightWhere... or awesome titles by Ramsey Campbell, Jonathan Janz, Kristopher Rufty, Ronald Malfi, W.D. Gagliani, Brian Moreland, Russell R. James, David Bernstein, Ronald Malfi, Mick Ridgewell, Bryan Smith and so many more! And if you want romance or erotica -- Samhain has a huge catalog of those genres as well.

Just go to the Samhain Store and use the code PAPERBACK50.




Next month!

I HAVE SOME  big book news to announce... but I can't just...yet. And I have a big weekend ahead, so I'd best hit the sack. But stay tuned next month for some news!

In the meantime, enjoy the Ides of March, and tilt back an ale for me! (And St. Patrick!)

Yours in Dark Arts,
