Kibbles and News Bits, and Time for a Change

Waiting for a contract on something I’m pretty excited about.  Should arrive sometime this week.  Once it’s signed and such, you’ll be hearing more.  This is a fun one.

My short story “The House on Toledo Street” will be reprinted tomorrow on Horror-Web.com as part of their October festivities.  If you missed this one when it was in Wicked Karnival, check it out now for the low, low price of zero!

There’s something coming in the mail, something I can’t wait to show you all.

And now, a most important announcement…

I need to make a few changes.  I know this.  I’ve been realizing it for some time.  I’m a few months shy of thirty.  And no, this isn’t a midlife crisis or anything like that.  No, it just so happens that I’m also thirty pounds overweight.  It also happens that I can’t remember the last time I went thirty days without getting utterly hammered.  Hell, I can’t remember the last time I went five days.  A few years ago, I used to buy a liter of Knob Creek or Maker’s Mark, and it would last me a few weeks.  Now, I buy a $6 liter of Skol vodka, and it lasts me a little more than a day.  Damn, that’s pathetic.  This really needs to change.  And it’s going to.  I’m not stupid enough to live the rest of my life like this, a doughy, drunken asshole.

Sorry to air this in public, but I deserve it.
