Pretty-please.

So here’s the deal:

There’s a broadcast coming up on the 13th and I’d really like for you to be there. I’ll be making a couple of announcements concerning things that many of you have asked for over the last several months. Don’t miss it.

I’ll also be giving away a bunch of stuff, including digital copies of ULT #6, which goes on sale July 14th. Remember, to be entered for these giveaways, you have to participate in the event.

I’ve made some cosmetic changes to the site and reorganized some pages. Nothing major, but it’s a bit more straightforward and easier to look at.

That’s all for now. Tune in on the 13th and join the FB event!

“I don’t wanna disappear.”

My friend and fellow author Nikki Nelson-Hicks (whose Jake Istenhegyi series is pretty great) sent this to me because it reminded her of the Monochrome. Check it out:

Also: I know I’ve been quiet as of late. I’ve been working on some things concerning the next Geeky Writers broadcasts, a couple of announcements I have to make, and some other writing commitments (which I’ll share with you when the time is right).

In the meantime, for my American friends, I hope you enjoy the 4th of July holiday. And for all of you outside the US, I hope you have a great weekend. More soon!

ULT #6 COVER REVEAL!

house of nettle and thorn bright 

From the twisted mind that brought you THE HARBINGER comes a new tale of the macabre.

Following a devastating breakup, Jim Auster’s roommate Nick suggests an off-campus sorority party to cure Jim’s heartache. “Be my wingman tonight,” Nick tells him, “and I’ll introduce you to some of the ladies in my history class.” Jim is reluctant about being Nick’s wingman, but he figures the party beats sulking in his dorm room all night.

When they arrive, the unnerving atmosphere shakes Jim’s resilience. The neighborhood is abandoned, the sorority’s front gate bears the ominous effigy of a man in submission, and the sorority sisters’ strange talk of harvests and reconciliations only work to further disturb Jim.

Try to relax, he tells himself. It’s just a party. After all, a little socializing never hurt anyone . . .

In his latest ugly little thing, Todd Keisling invites readers on a journey into the depths of madness and desire. Welcome to the HOUSE OF NETTLE AND THORN. We’ve been expecting you.

“Brilliant stuff.”

First, my apologies to Nev. I was in the middle of the house move when this was originally posted, and I’m just now starting to dig myself out from all these boxes. Here’s a snippet of what Nev had to say about ULT:

I don’t know whether it’s because this one has dolls in it or not but this was one verrry creepy tale. It reminds me of some of the old Hammer Horror films I used to watch as a kid. I could imagine this being set in the 70’s. It has that sort of feel about it […] This is where you will start to get creeped out. There are no huge elaborate scenes to try and scare you. It’s the little, subtle things that do it. Something being in a different place than it was a few minutes ago. That sort of thing. It has quite a big ending and again brings me back to the old horror films. Brilliant stuff.

Yeah, I think he liked it. You can read his full review here.

TONIGHT! Awkward Conversations with Geeky Writers: HASHTAG Edition!

Awkward ConversationsSo we were all hanging out in the secret Geeky Writer bunker (which is not to be confused with the Free Hugs bunker—that’s down the street from Love Train Station) when we realized it’s been three months since our V-Day broadcast! With that in mind, The Geeky Writer Gang™ has a special hangout in store for you.

See, our very own Eryk Pruitt has a new novel out today. It’s called HASHTAG, and it promises to be just as dark and twisted as his debut. Since Eryk’s a pretty cool guy, we all thought we should host a special broadcast to kick off his new book, and to engage in the usual nightly shenanigans you’ve all come to know and love.
HASHTAG!
Join us tonight at 8 PM EST as we go live on YouTube to congratulate Eryk, talk about his latest release, and discuss whatever else comes to mind. Maybe we’ll finally find out who’s tied up in his basement!

There may even be giveaways, and you know what that means, folks: if you want a chance to win, you have to show up and PARTICIPATE! As with previous events, links to the broadcast will be posted on the Facebook event page a few minutes before we go live. You can tune into YouTube to catch our antics and ask any questions you might have right on the event page.

We hope you’ll consider joining us!
