The Heroes Nighthawks Find their Voice

Listen to Nighthawks on Audible http://amzn.to/2vwDHWM

 

I started looking for a narrator for my book in January. I wanted a female because of how important I think the roles are for my female characters. I also believe there is something amazing about having a female narrate a book typically dominated by men. During Boskone I was excited to announce my book had been picked up by a narrator. I’m happy to report that the narration by Robin J Sitten is everything I hoped it would be. Coming in just over eight hours, Robin breathed life into my characters. The dialogue remains snarky while the fight scenes are fluid and intense. So if you’re an audiobook fan, I highly suggest you move this onto your device and prepare for an amazing story.

Topped with Rainbow Colored Sprinkles

It’s 1:30AM when I wrote this and I’m still awake. Truth be told, I’m currently angry at myself for not buying ice cream earlier. I hate my logical past self. 1:30AM demands ice cream. We’re going to need to have a long talk about the necessity of having chocolate swirls available at all time.

I just clicked “submit” on the Nighthawks audio book. My past self is kind of a dink. I remember him thinking, “Oh, I can edit an audio book easy peasy.” Not only did he skip out on peanut butter cup Ben & Jerry’s, he also had absolutely no idea how difficult it is to edit an audio book. My wonderful narrator, Robin J. Sitten did such a great job that the editing process was easy enough, but active listening is apparently not a skill I easily command. The button has been pushed and now the Amazon gremlins will perform whatever devious acts they must and soon it’ll be available for sale.

Oh yeah, Suburban Zombie High: The Reunion is available for sale too. Grab a copy, leave a review, I think by now we all know the drill. The third installment is getting ready to see the light of day for the first time. The third book in this series has defeated me three times before. This time, I’m kicking it in the butt so hard its teeth are rattling. Huge shout out to my editor for this series, Suzanne Lahna over at Word Vagabond, without her cheering me on from the corner, I’d probably be a crying mess. Nobody wants to see a large man weeping over his iPad. It’s not pretty.

By the time you read this, there’s a good chance I’ll have the curtains drawn and be elbow deep in popcorn while I watch the latest Power Rangers movie. Yes, the curtains will be drawn so my neighbors won’t catch me indulging in my secret shame. What can I say? I grew up on Power Rangers and with an injection of teen angst, there’s a chance I’ll be buying it on Blu-Ray before the end credits appear. Stop shaking your head, it’s not that bad. I can quit anytime I want. I swear.

Now that you’re judging me, leave me your guilty pleasure movie in the comments. I’ll reveal the single movie I can’t help but stop and watch every time it’s on TV. You think you’re judging me now, just wait.

Bangor Geeks Represented For Third Year

As you can see, the Bangor Comic & Toy Convention did not disappoint. This year I decided to have some fun and treat it less like a vending opportunity and more like attending a con with a permanent bench. Chris MacMillan, the organizer of BCTC continues to put on a great show that mixes a diverse set of interests from superheroes to anime, to MTG to consoles, and wrestlers to cosplayers. I continue to be amazed that hiding not too far from my hometown in rural Maine, there are geeks waiting for a chance to break out their costumes and delve into a world of storytelling, art, and collectibles.

Like last year, I was seated next to Amanda Kahl, a long time friend, illustrator, and graphic novelist. We had the opportunity to geek out, talk shop, and bounce ideas off one another. Unlike last year, I was smart and brought back up, a friend from my University of Maine Farmington days, Dan Johnston came and sat with me. Unfortunately, his iron will isn’t quite the same and he found himself victim to the amazing baubles of several vendors. I do have to admit, he scored some amazing artwork I’m a little jealous of.

The best part of it isn’t just meeting new fans, but seeing familiar faces for the second year in a row. I had multiple people say, “Loved your last book, gonna grab your two new ones.” I’m a bit more secure with signing books, well, at least until they ask for a personal message and then I just turn into an idiot. I had the chance to talk to hopeful writers and even a young man in the prime of his grade school years telling me about his awesome comic book adventures. Really, how much more happy can a guy get when he’s staring at a mini version of himself thirty years ago.

A special thanks has to go out to Chris MacMillan for putting on the BCTC. I’m glad I have a place near home where I can sell books and take in the geek culture, but it’s something much bigger than that. Growing up in a small town in northern Maine, we read our comics in the comfort of our rooms and felt a little shame about chasing down super villains with our heroes. Now, decades later, geekdom is marked with pride and you can’t help but think there is a new generation of creators being made because of this exposure. So thanks, for me, and the soon-to-be’s.
