The Awakening Blog Tour: You Should Be In Pictures (JP Adkins)

Wednesday, April 26th, 2017

Once in a blue moon–not the Blue Moon ale G.A. Hauser taught me how to drink with a slice of orange–I’m asked to either contribute a blog post or host a blog post. And by once in a full moon, I mean maybe once every couple of years. People must be afraid of me. They have to be. Fear is the only thing that makes sense because, darn it, I think I’m pretty amusing. Obviously, I hold the minority opinion. Rationally irrational fear aside, I’m turning today over to Kurt Russell, who I’m having lunch with. No, seriously. I’m having lunch with him. In my mind. JP Adkins will be taking over whilst I have a salad. Jeff–or Mr. Adkins as he makes me call him in public…and private–is celebrating his release. Not his first release either mind you. There are stories about those releases. And witnesses. But it is his first book release. So, take it away Je…er…Mr. Adkins!


The IRS, A Sex Scene, and Those Butt Babes in Boyland!

Thursday, December 4th, 2014

Why so serious? I had to ask myself that question after I put the finishing touches on Monday’s blog post. It ain’t all doom and gloom. After all, the Butt-thology authors—of which I’m a part—just launched a new anthology yesterday. It’s a collection of holiday stories, so, you know, not at all time-sensitive. Now we’re in the midst of putting together posts for a blog tour and gearing up for an online radio show interview next Monday. And you know what all of this means, don’t you? Reviews. This is the part where the reviews start coming in and we wait with EXTREMELY nervous trepidation about what opinions will be. Then there was the whole income tax thing.

“A Heart For Robbie” Released Today From J.P. Barnaby!

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

Sometimes an author writes something so personal that it can be considered cathartic or therapeutic. I was there (online) when J.P. Barnaby mentioned the idea of writing A Heart For Robbie and explained why it was so important to her. I was there (online) when she wrote it and I was there (online) when she sent me a draft to beta. Basically, I’m always there for her (online). And this is a very, very personal book for her. It’s why I’m breaking one of my rules today about almost never featuring promo here, and instead helping–along with several other authors and friends–give this novel a proper sendoff.

So, please give your attention to the lovely Miss J.P. Barnaby.

Butt Ninjas From Hell Backstory 7: Jevocas Green

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014

I remember what it was like to be the new kid on the block. It was actually kinda awesome, so I know I can speak for the rest of us in the Butt Pirates in Space anthology when I say how delighted we are that Jevocas Green’s experience during his first time out as a published author was a positive one. It’s also a rare thing when a first time author gets to share what their inspiration was. This is why I wanted to make sure Java got a chance to tell the tale behind the tale of tail. So here he is. He’s all yours. And you are his.

Butt Ninjas From Hell Backstory 6: Eden Winters

Monday, May 26th, 2014

If you ever want to know about southern hospitality and charm, look no further than Eden Winters. Eden has taken it upon herself to selflessly teach me how to avoid the dreaded version of “bless your heart!” It only made sense that she should become part of the second anthology. I don’t think I’ve ever made a joke at Eden’s expense and I see no reason to, so please give her your full attention as she dishes some behind-the-scenes info on her story in Butt Ninjas From Hell.

Butt Ninjas From Hell Backstory 5: Ally Blue

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

I met Ally Blue several years ago at DragonCon. She took me under her wing, bought me drinks, made sure I made it up to my room safely, and ensured nobody (but her) could give me grief. She is a gay man’s best friend and I have nothing bad to say about her. I fear for the person who does say something negative about her in my presence because… Wait, that’s T.C. Blue. Shit. Yeah, go ahead and give this Ally Blue all the grief you want. She called me a baaaaaaad name the first time we met. That’s how evil she is.

And, okay, I may or may not have flushed a toilet just after an online interviewer asked her a question (and before she could answer) the night most of the Butt Ninjas were being asked about the anthology. heh heh heh So without further ado, here’s Ally Blue!


Butt Ninjas From Hell Backstory 4: Moi (Kage Alan)

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

I mentioned in the introduction to Kiernan Kelly’s post yesterday that I’d never intended to take part in an anthology. I’d been asked before, but never accepted. Why not take the plunge? It just never seemed fun to me. I want to feel like I’m part of something, not a name on a cover with a story that’ll be easily dismissed. So I never did. Then, at OutlantaCon two years ago, I accepted and took part in Butt Pirates in Space. Why take the plunge then? In all honesty, these are good people. I respect them, I admire them, they’re like family, and they make me laugh while also keeping me grounded. The anthology went over well enough that we decided to continue with Butt Ninjas From Hell. Which brings me to my story.

Butt Ninjas From Hell Backstory 3: Kiernan Kelly

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

I remember the first time I met Kiernan Kelly. It was at DragonCon. I sat down, she looked over at me and said “Sit up. Get your elbows off the table. Get your foot off the chair. Do you do that at home.” And I was in Heaven! Kiernan is a mom, an author, a fan of Marvel movies, a wife/tormentor to her husband, and an absolute blast to be around! She also has an incredible imagination and isn’t afraid to use it.

I’ll tell you a little secret while I’m at it; I never had any intention of ever getting involved in an anthology. However, with Kiernan taking charge of Butt Pirates in Space, how could I not. And speaking of Kiernan, here she is with her own backstory tale to tell.

Butt Ninjas From Hell Backstory 2: Shae Connor

Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

I’ve teased Shae Connor for years about her having picked everybody under the sun up at the airport except me. I can no longer do that. But while it was acceptable to tease Shae for such an indiscretion, I discovered it was absolutely UNACCEPTABLE to offer her dollar bills for carrying my bags to the car, putting them into the car, or otherwise doing things one might tip someone for. Poor J.P. Barnaby sat there in horror watching me do this. This all goes to prove that Shae has an incredible sense of humor, something she showcases in her story ‘Clean Up on Aisle Me’ in the Butt Ninjas From Hell anthology.
