A Message From The Dumb Ass Author

Hey everybody! I just wanted to wish everyone a happy holidays if you celebrate it, or if you don’t, happy Mythbusters marathon days! (I’ve been enjoying that myself.) Anyways, I wanted to take a moment to also thank everybody who read my books and stories this year. This hasn’t been a super productive year for me – depression is great, isn’t it folks? – but I hope to turn that around next year. I have two WIPs well over fifty thousand words, and Less Than Three Press will be re-releasing both Josh of the Damned and Strange Angels. I hope to post updates, and maybe a little flash fic along the way. Thank you so much for the reviews and book recommendations. It all helps, and you’ve basically kept me going this year....

For you and I will join him soon, And here we will all...

Coming To A Theater Near You …

Thanks to Jenn Burke and her typo for this flash fic. ** Fade in on a sunny, well appointed kitchen – basically a Martha Stewart kitchen, or a Williams-Sonoma catalog display come to life. Voice Over (ominous male voice): From the producer of “Girls Gone Stabby”, and the director of “Don’t Open That Door” comes a new tale of shocking horror … A woman enters the kitchen, followed by a man carrying grocery bags. They’re young and upwardly mobile, a bland sort of “every couple”. Woman: It was so nice of that man at the farmer’s market to give away pies. What did he say they were made of again? Man: Fruits from his greenhouse, I think? All I know is he called them Venus pies, and I am here for it. They put groceries away, but the...
