Are you afraid of demons?

Welcome to the month of May! There are so many good things that happen in May. Like, the flowers, right? After the April showers and all that? (Technically in my area we’ve had more rain in the first four days of May than in April, but April has the edge in snow. So far.) AlsoContinue reading “Are you afraid of demons?”

As promised – Cover Reveal

We’re thrilled to reveal the cover for Cleanup Crew #4, The Demon of Denver. But first a word about the cover designer. David Berens, apart from being a good friend to Craig and myself, is an incredible author, creating one of the better character’s I’ve come across in recent years in Troy Bodean, and onContinue reading “As promised – Cover Reveal”

Two Girls

Kurt Vonnegut once told me (and everyone else in the auditorium) never to apologize. He then went on to give one of the most heartfelt apologies I’ve ever heard. I’m sorry for the title I gave this post. I’m sick over it. I don’t know if I’ll ever forgive myself. Mainly I’m sorry for notContinue reading “Two Girls”

A Farewell to Legs

E2Books Presents Craig and Scott Live – Oh yeah. It’s a thing now. So, I didn’t write a post after our first Facebook Live back on March 24th. My rationale was plausible deniability. If the thing was a train wreck I could try saying I had nothing to do with it, even though my faceContinue reading “A Farewell to Legs”

Oh dear, oh dear!

There are certain things you know are risky ideas when you hear them. “I think these bald tires have one more cross-country trip in them. Take the spare out of the trunk to make room for more beer,” for example. Or, “Let’s interview S.J. Varengo on our podcast.” And yet that is just what hasContinue reading “Oh dear, oh dear!”

Facelift

Did you have a celebrity crush when you were in high school? Have you been out of school for a while now? If you answered yes to both of those questions, I have a third for you. Have you seen them lately? Chances are they’ve had some work done. The thing about facelifts is thatContinue reading “Facelift”

My Life as a Meme

Writers! Argh they drive me crazy! Always with the words, these people! Can’t they ever just stop with all the brilliance and insight? Can’t they just be, without being a writer? Can’t they ever turn it off? The quick answer to all of those questions is the same. No. Now before I venture too muchContinue reading “My Life as a Meme”

Battling Demons

I don’t really know what I expected. Did I think, back in 2017 when I first outlined the idea for The Beauty of Bucharest to my friend and writing partner, Craig Hart, that it would be a walk in the park, or perhaps several parks? I knew Craig had the literary savvy to tell meContinue reading “Battling Demons”
