So apparently the Republican Party wants me dead.

And by me, I mean Diabetics everywhere.

You doubt me? Here: READ THIS.

I'm good, I'm covered. I have medical insurance. but if you and yours are having trouble with coverage, you can thank these asshats.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE remember this when the midterm elections come around.

it isn't just diabetes. that's just the easiest for them to point a finger at.

YOUR vote matters.

PLEASE remember that when you decide how you want to vote, I will NOT be voting with the sort of vile scum that want me dead because of a medical condition or who are JUDGING ME because of that same medical condition.

and in the meantime, if they are so worried about the Affordable Care Act damaging taxpayers, I think we should absolutely make certain that they PRACTICE WHAT THEY PREACH!!!! Please consider adding your name to this list.

Tor.com INDIGO sweepstakes!


Indigo Prize Pack Sweepstakes!


Indigo, a collaborative novel from ten critically acclaimed authors, is available June 20th from St. Martins’ Press—and to celebrate, we want to send you a prize pack including one book by each of its co-authors! One lucky reader will receive a galley copy of Indigo and a copy of each of the following books:
Sleep Like a Baby by Charlaine Harris (advance reader’s copy)
Ararat by Christopher Golden
City of the Lost by Kelley Armstrong
Dogs of War by Jonathan Maberry
Greywalker by Kat Richardson
Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire
The Silence by Tim Lebbon
The Family Plot by Cherie Priest
Seven Forges by James A. Moore
The Wraiths of War by Mark Morris
In Indigo, investigative reporter Nora Hesper spends her nights cloaked in shadows. As Indigo, she’s become an urban myth, a brutal vigilante who can forge darkness into weapons and travel across the city by slipping from one patch of shadow to another. Her primary focus both as Nora and as Indigo has become a murderous criminal cult called the Children of Phonos. Children are being murdered in New York, and Nora is determined to make it stop, even if that means Indigo must eliminate every member. But in the aftermath of a bloody battle, a dying cultist makes claims that cause Indigo to question her own origin and memories.
Nora’s parents were killed when she was nineteen years old. She took the life insurance money and went off to explore the world, leading to her becoming a student of meditation and strange magic in a mountaintop monastery in Nepal…a history that many would realize sounds suspiciously like the origins of several comic book characters. As Nora starts to pick apart her memory, it begins to unravel. Her parents are dead, but the rest is a series of lies. Where did she get the power inside her?

MERRIMACK VALLEY HALLOWEEN BOOK FESTIVAL 2017


MERRIMACK VALLEY HALLOWEEN BOOK FESTIVAL 2017
Author Christopher Golden says, 
I founded this event in 2015. Last year, the turnout was huge and I promised that this year would be even bigger and better. I intend to deliver on that promise. Last year, a number of authors debuted new books and chapbooks at the event, and I know the same will be true this year. I anticipate a great many debuts and exclusives—including something of mine, but that’s for later.
The MERRIMACK VALLEY HALLOWEEN BOOK FESTIVAL 2017 will be held on Saturday, October 21st, 2017, from 10am till 4:30pm. Once again, the event will be held at the Haverhill Public Library (Haverhill, MA) and is FREE and open to the public. Sponsored by River City Writers, Andover Bookstore, Haverhill House Publishing, and--of course--Haverhill Public Library.
So…who’s going to be there? We’re expanding a bit this year, adding a number of writers primarily known for their mystery and thriller novels, and our total number of attending authors and artists has passed FIFTY. Among them, we’re thrilled to welcome back Joe Hill. Joe’s new book, Strange Weather, debuts around the country on October 24th…but we’ve made special arrangements with Joe’s publisher and our friends at Andover Bookstore to have Strange Weather make its official debut three days early, at the Merrimack Valley Halloween Book Festival. Joe will be on hand to sign them, of course.
We’re also thrilled to welcome Alice Hoffman, who will join us as part of her tour for her own October release, The Rules of Magic. One of our panels during the festival will be “Joe Hill & Alice Hoffman: In Conversation.”
(Please note...the Joe & Alice: In Conversation event WILL require registration. The event is free, but due to space concerns, you will have to register in advance for that event. More information to come.)
But I know you want the full list of attendees, so here you go, first for newsletter subscribers, as promised!
I hope to see you all there!
Saturday, October 21st, 2017!


Trust me ,if you can make it to this one, you should!
