Fun New Interview at Number One Novels

Hi all,

Thanks for all the B-Day wishes last week! I got tons! Very cool!

So, I had fun with this new interview, and even mentioned The Beer Pope! (high-five brother) I also posted a bit of the query that found my debut novel a publisher. Check it out. Also, with this one, there is a signed copy of SOUL BORN. So don't miss the give-away! Sign up.

Fantasy Faction's Awesome New Review of SOUL BORN!

Hi all,

It always feels great when someone reads and understands your work. Here is a review from someone who seems to really get me as an author. I hope for the continued support of Fantasy Faction for many-many years and novels to come.

Yes, I still own all my Pen and Paper RPG Games.

Look what I still have...

Dungeons and Dragons modules from my collection
 Packed away safely, years ago, I must have 50 or more D&D modules all in great condition.  Someday I would love to read all of my old D&D books, manuals and modules again. From time to time I pick up my the old Monster Manual or Deities and Demigods books just to page through. 

Hard bound D&D books, hell yeah!
 When I was a kid I was totally in love with all the artwork on and inside these books, and to date I am still a fan. I look at these books and get all inspired... I mean look at the cover for Beyond the Crystal Cave (first pic above), I could write a whole story based on that painting alone.  They say a picture is worth a thousand words, well I will give you a three thousand word short story easily!  Maybe the D&D folks should have a writing contest from my idea right here... hmmm...

I also managed to save a few other items between house to house moves. Check out these two Dungeons and Dragons Endless Quest Books (choose your own adventure).

Circus of Fear
Mountain of Mirrors

I remember these sets being so hard to find, always sold out.
I even have a small collection of lead D&D figurines. Yep, the lead ones from the original batches made in the 1980s.  If I had a dollar for everytime my Mom complained that they were made of lead... What did she think I was doing with these figures? Chewing on them? No that was Chris!

For some reason, I just cannot bring myself to sell or throw out any of my old RPG games. I still have all my Top Secret, Star Frontiers and Car Wars books.  Okay, to be honest, I have a ton of Car War stuff.  Car War remains the RPG game that I had the most fun playing growing up, and by growing up I mean I was still playing Car Wars with my friends: Andy, Chris, Bob, and Sean way into our mid 20s. Holla!

2 New Interviews and 1 New Published Short Story

Thanks to From the Shadows

On January 6th, 2011 I had a new interview go live at From the Shadows. E.J. Stevens conducted this fun little interview, that you can Read Here.

Thanks to My Vampire Fiction

A couple days before that an extensive interview I did with My Vampire Fiction went live along with an original piece of fiction.  They asked me to submit some writing, so I thought it would be cool to do something new. Apparently this is the first original short story they have published on their site, which normally caters to fan fiction. I am honored to be given this chance to lead a new trend.

Check out the My Vampire Fiction Interview Here and then read:
A WAY TO A MAN'S HEART IS THROUGH HIS STOMACH, my 3100+ word Short Story Here.

Just a fair warning, the short story is in the Horror genre, but has erotic and tones, and is just plain brutal.
