It’s been over a month since I last updated the ol’ blog, but I’ve been far from sedentary.
Leatherface really wants that Video Night shirt I’m wearing. He could just order his own…
Took a road trip up to Rock and Shock in Worcester, MA earlier in the month and it was just as great as always, even better because
Black T-Shirt Books had a huge table with all of our authors in attendance.
Adventure Time Spoooktacular 2017 hit comic shops and seems to have been well-received with both critics and fans of the show ( Paste Magazine called it “wildly entertaining” and Nerdist says it’s a “fantastic anthology that Adventure Time fans can’t miss”). If you still haven’t grabbed your copy you can call your local comic store or order direct from BOOM! Studios.
And on top of all that (and some top-secret stuff it’s too early to talk about), I’ve been a busy, stammering, bee on YouTube with my Project: Black T-Shirt channel. If you’ve missed me
giving a tour of my movie shelves, discussing Chucky’s latest massacre, paging through Grady Hendrix new book Paperbacks from Hell, or wanted the festival-circuit heads up on Tragedy Girls, please click over there and binge-watch. Also hit those “like” and “subscribe” buttons if you don’t mind.

Desperate for some creepy reading for when you’re at the beach? I’ve come up with a list of five (it’s actually seven, but don’t tell anyone) novels and audiobooks.
You can check that out over on my YouTube channel. If you haven’t hit that subscribe button, I’d love it if you did.
Are movies more your thing? Well I was lucky enough to get the chance to check out the upcoming
68 Kill at a special screening during Wizard World last month. The movie was directed by Trent Haaga, stars Matthew Gray Gubler and AnnaLynne McCord, and was based on a novel by Bryan Smith. I’ve got a video review of that where I discuss other recent novel-to-film adaptations.
If you’ve no interest in watching me talk, and would rather read my take on a giant monster story:
Exponential is now out in paperback from Black T-Shirt Books. This new edition sports a dope new cover and a brand new afterword. If you already own the old edition: this is the same book, don’t double-dip unless you’re really sure you need to own the new cover. If you’d prefer to save paper: there’s always the ebook, also available for Kindle Unlimited subscribers.
If you’ve already got that, or monsters aren’t your thing:
Year’s Best Hardcore Horror Volume Two is now out in ebook, paperback, and audiobook narrated by Joe Hempel. There are great authors like Tim Waggoner, Michael Arnzen, and Bryan Smith in there. Along with one by me.
That’s all for today! Happy reading, stay cool!

Hey everyone. A couple of quick items:
First of all: This weekend (Feb. 25th-26th) Black T-Shirt Books will be repping hard at
TerrorCon 2017 in Providence, RI.
If you’re in New England, I encourage you to stop by. The guest list is insane and I’ll be there slinging books alongside superpals Matt Serafini and Patrick Lacey. Hope to see you there.
Second of all: thank you. The response to
, Video Night , and The Summer Job being re-released has been truly incredible. Zero Lives Remaining
As a quick tip for anyone who’s purchased the
paperback editions of any of these books (even if they were the old editions): through Kindle Matchbook you’re eligible to get a FREE ebook copy of the new edition. Just make sure you’re logged into the same Amazon account and that the kindle book rings up $0.00 before you click to purchase. Even if you’re a technophobe: claim your free ebooks because it helps out the books visibility on Amazon.
Lastly but certainly not leastly: I managed to get an episode of
Project: Black T-Shirt up in observance of Women in Horror Month. In the episode I do a segment-by-segment rundown of XX, the new multi-director anthology film. Spoiler alert for the video, but: I recommend you check this movie out. Especially if you’re a Jack Ketchum fan, as it includes a great adaptation of one of his best (and most anthologized) stories.
As always: views, likes, comments, and subscribes on the YouTube page help me out immensely.
That’s all for tonight. Hope to see you at the show and
thank you again for reading (and reviewing on Amazon) these books. I wouldn’t be able to keep writing if it weren’t for your generous support.

Less than a month after
, Video Night‘s triumphant return . The Summer Job is now available on Amazon
Check out the new cover by artist
Video Night, this new edition is not meant for double dipping, but does contain a new afterword and some tiny nips and tucks in the text. If you’re familiar with some of my other work but haven’t yet checked out The Summer Job: I highly suggest you give it a chance. It’s some of my strongest work, if not my flat-out best novel. You can pick up a copy here.
If you’re not looking to check out my words but would instead like to watch me rant about books and movies: I also have you covered there. Last week’s episode of
Project: Black T-Shirt is a top 5 list of the “Best Vampire Novels You Haven’t Read”! The trick is that you may have read a few of them, but at least we have a fun discussion in the comments. Click here to watch that. Be sure to hit the “Subscribe” button while you’re over there.
If you’re watching that and thinking: “Boy, I love black t-shirts too but I wish I had one with my favorite Long Island alien invasion novel” than I ALSO have you covered there.
Chris Enterline and I both have you covered. Because we’re proud to announce a brand new line of t-shirts and merch through our Redbubble store. The inaugural design is based on And, yes: it is a deliberate homage to “The Birth of Venus” by Botticelli. Video Night and you can pick up a shirt right here.
They’re a little pricey, but the quality of Redbubble’s products is completely off the charts. If you pick one up: please send me a picture of you wearing it!
These designs are not meant to compete with Sam Mcanna’s Skurvy Ink shirts, but Sam has shut down his site and that business will hopefully be returning soon in some form or another.
Hope ya’ll are having a great day. Peace and love,
