REVIEW: 'Dark Days' in St. Louis


Had a great opportunity to view a panel recently with four of today's best Young Adult authors: Veronica Roth, Aprilynne Pike, Dan Wells, and SJ Kincaid. Wrote up a piece on the experience for Walrus Publishing and they were kind enough to run it on their website. If you would like to read what some great writers have to say about the art of being a scribe, how to get into the business, or just some info on some great books, click HERE.

I am the Walrus! Or At Least Published at Walrus

(All four variant covers of issue No. 1 of Legends of the Dark Knight, autographed by Denny O'Neil. Yeah. Dig me.)

So I've been talking for almost a month about how I was going to write up my experience with legendary Batman writer Denny O'Neil (I know, he did other stuff, shut up) from his appearance at Project: Comic Con here in St. Louis June 9. I was honestly going to blog it and then I became involved in a relationship with locally-owned and operated Walrus Publishing, a group by and for St. Louis-area writers. It happened in STL, Denny's an STL native, so I waited so I could have the story published on their site. Everybody's happy.

To read the awesomeness that was Denny O'Neil, click HERE. I'm going to write some other stuff for Walrus as well, such as book reviews and literary event coverage. I'll post some info here, but be sure to check out the Walrus Publishing website by clicking on the link over to the right on this page. You won't regret it.

Free Randy Blythe

In case you haven't heard, Lamb of God lead singer/screamer/growler Randy Blythe was arrested last week in Prague due to an incident in 2010 there that allegedly resulted in the death of a fan. Here's the latest news in a story that's beginning to look more and more like a whole lotta bullshit. If you're a fan, head to Twitter and show your support with the #FreeRandyBlythe hashtag. Also, LoG guitarist Mark Morton has asked fans to wear their LoG colors on Wednesday, Independence Day, in support of Randy. Post them to Twitter to @MarkDuaneMorton with #FreeRandyBlythe and he said he would try to re-tweet as many as he could.

Free Randy Blythe.
