About Me

This is it.  Ground zero.  Would you like to say a few words to mark the occasion?” 

Actually I would.  Game face on people!  “And. Here. We. Go.”  Time to get my P.T. Barnum in full effect and put on my Kanye face; sans the afro-mullet.  Grabbing my books and shoving them in everyone’s face while screaming: “This is the flavor that they savor up here neighbor!”  Now you know if I’m pulling old school quotes from Sugar Hill then I must be serious.  If it makes you feel any better I can use: “I’m a hustler, baby.  I just want you to know.  It ain’t where ah been, but where ah’m about to go.”    

First, I got everything back from the printers.  I’ll run down the list real quick.  We’ve got ROTS lanyards, drawstring bags, postcards and bookmarks.  There are two different bookmarks; one with a Skull quote, and one with a Talon quote.  The bookmarks, and postcards are free giveaways; well not exactly.  Think of it like one of those timeshare pitches.  Sure you can have one, you just have to listen to my 5 minute sales pitch.  The ROTS bags and lanyards, the ROTS novel, and the special Con print version of The Unknown will be for sale.  Still working out the final prices for these items.  The books will be going for a special Con price of $10.00.  That’s a $4.95 savings that we’re passing on to you.  I’ll also have a ROTS “Zen” bag special.  Zen bag, you know, one with everything.  You get the bag, a copy of Riders of the Storm: The Legend of Skull and Talon, The Unknown, a lanyard, both bookmarks, and the postcard.    There will also be a limited signed and numbered edition of The Unknown signed by myself and the photographer Jessica “Pablo” Knight.  She also goes by the name of J Knight Shyamalan.   “What a twist!

So, what else?  Good question.  Not really sure.  I’m just kinda making this up as I go along.  I will say that I’m surprised by the amount of last minute planning and details that go into all this.  I’m still running around trying to make sure I have everything.  “Everyday ah’m hustlin’.  Everyday ah’m hustlin’.”  I wish there was more to say, but my mind won’t stay still long enough to focus.  I’ll make it simple.  Just come over and say hi.  You’ll still get the full blown incoherent, nonsensical, non-linear, ramblings in person that you get here.  Even more so. 

I’m hoping to do a daily Con update, but I’m not going to commit to it right now.  We’ll just have to see how things go. 

Ok.  It’s time to roll.  I’m cocked, locked, and ready to rock.  Let’s do this.
