Bookselling News & Radio Addendum
In my last post, I talked about doing the radio show Spooky Southcoast and how much fun it was, etc. & so on, (haven’t seen the video yet? Check it out, or listen to the broadcast by searching my name on iTunes). What I forgot to mention was how dumb I felt toward the end of the show.
The show broadcasts from 10 PM to midnight, Eastern, and I was very tired before going in. Toward the end of the show, I began to truly feel tired and was losing my train of thought. So when host Tim Weisberg asked me if there was anyone new out there in the world of horror, I couldn’t think of anything. I mentioned Joe Hill, who is great, and then I mumbled something about how more people should read Harlan Ellison, a classic but a great, and that was about it. I had wanted to mention John R. Little.
John has supported me a lot and I even looked down at my to-be-read pile and saw his collection Little Things before leaving for the show and made a mental note to mention him. Unfortunately, the mental note got lost amongst the other stuff tumbling around my brain. So, that said, check out John R. Little, a writer who I admire.
I’m sure there are others I’m forgetting even now, but….
Okay, so now the bookselling news. Yesterday, Horror Mall announced that they are no longer selling Bad Moon Books publications. Both companies have posts concerning the abrupt end but I choose not to talk about it here. Both companies are responsible for my two current novellas, so it would behoove me to not say a damn thing. Besides, I’m not entirely sure what’s going on and, as long as the checks for both novellas keep coming, I’m good.
So, for people who may have ordered Alice on the Shelf through Horror Mall, know that those orders will be filled, no sweat. For those who haven’t ordered the novella but are planning to, or if you are planning on ordering Alice on the Shelf for a friend, or if you are simply referring the novella to people, this is the place where you should send them now.
The ebook for Alice on the Shelf is also available everywhere ebooks are sold, but is also available through Crossroad Press.
That’s it for now. I have a bunch of editing to do and intend to get into it. Later.
