Sanitarium, Beyond Steampunk, And The 2018 Ottawa Comiccon

Hey everybody!

So I realize there’s been some radio silence on my end in the last few months, but that’s only because there’s been a lot going on. Although I wish I had the time to make an individual post for every update, unfortunately I have to group a few really cool things into one post.

As some of you may know, I recently purchased Sanitarium Magazine with Ian Sputnik, Brooke Warra, and Michael Brueggeman. We’re doing some really cool things with it—like expanding its offerings and changing its look—and I’m really excited for you all to see what kind of changes and updates we make to this publication. Unfortunately I can’t talk too much about what we’re doing, but I promise it’s going to be good. It’s beloved by so many indie horror authors, and gave so many people (like me!) their start in horror, so I really hope we can do it justice.

I was also published in a new anthology! It’s called Beyond Steampunk and features my short story “Highway 16,” which was previously published in 2016. If you get a kick out of supporting local authors—or if you just enjoy reading alternative histories—then be sure to pick up a copy.

Lastly, if you’re not doing anything this May, and happen to be in the Ottawa area, why not come down to the 2018 Ottawa Comiccon? I’ll be giving a workshop on body diversity, and how to make media more inclusive for everyone. The schedule for the convention hasn’t been released yet, but I promise to update the Courses, Workshops, and Panels page once I get all the details.   

And that should be all the updates.

At least for now.

Happy writing!

Overdue Thanks To Fan Expo And Some Exciting Updates

Hey guys! Sorry for the delay in updating this site, it’s been a crazy year and I haven’t had a chance to let you guys in on all the cool news.

I’d also like to thank the convention for having me; it was such a wonderful expo and I can’t wait to see what’s there in 2017.
