+Kat Richardson will be down at Mysterious Galaxy Redondo Beach tomorrow afternoon at 2:30 talking about her latest novel, SEA WITCH.  I will be there to... ask her embarrassing questions, I guess.

The Village By The Sea Kickstarter hit the goal that unlocks fiction by +Will Hindmarch and I.  And if it gets another $750.00 in the next day then +Chuck Wendig and +Jennifer Brozek join in on the horror fun.

So check it out.  It's a fantastic project and there are some amazing writers attached.
 
We hit the first stretch goal and unlocked another. Second stretch goal: short stories from Jennifer Brozek and Chuck Wendig. $750. 27 hours to do it. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1899740342/guide-to-the-village-by-the-sea/posts/275562
Folks, we made it. The ferry doesn't like to wait, but we have hauled Stephen Blackmoore and Will Hindmarch on. Somebody hand them a drink for me. I need both my hands to talk. Two more writers want t...

Congratulations and damn you, Blackmoore--I just started reading DEAD THINGS and it's infuriatingly good (and trying to invade my current WiP.) Hate, hate, hate you--in the best possible way.

Talk about unexpected. Kirkus announced their top 100 of 2012. And CITY OF THE LOST is in there.
