Thanks for the love, Texas!

"From the Ladybox imprint I recommend “Jigsaw Youth” by Tiffany Scandal. The photographer and Suicide Girl wrote and designed this aggressively self-affirming novel in which Latina Isobella “Ella” pushes her way through harrowing marginalization and heartbreak to find a way to survive and thrive on her own decided punk terms.

Dead End Follies posted an interview with me on Wednesday, and this morning I woke up their review of my latest book JIGSAW YOUTH.

@catdad, I am really hoping you love at least a few of those stories in Delicate Ministrations, and that you convince everyone at SG to read them. In any case, I'm touched, and truly hope you enjoy a handful, if not all of them!

@silencia, I have had Jigsaw Youth on my "to get" list for a while. I'll order it as soon as I'm back from my travels in September, and will read it this fall.

New interview is up on Dead End Follies. I talk about my latest book, upcoming projects, and share some of the most valuable writing advice I've received. Check it out!

Amazing results!!

Let me introduce you to your new favorite Horror author Lucas Mangum.

I first met Lucas at World Horror Con here in Portland. We were both on a panel where we got to talk about Erotica in Horror (panel aptly named Smut, Gore, and More). Young, energetic, and a fellow cat person, I knew I had made a new friend. So let's meet this

Nice interview!!

I woke up at four am to sound of water dripping from my bedroom ceiling. On the account that there's an apartment above ours, I got up and worried about the storm fucking up the buildings even more while they're still in the middle of a massive repair.

Sweet to see this, @silencia, and thanks for the shoutout, @catdad.

@silencia, like you I love physical books—the paper, the feel, the care in design. As an writer, I'm learning to appreciate that eBooks pay me more, a lot more. That said, I will also be sure that everything I write will be available in print and digital... any way people want to read it. Good luck with all your work, and sincere congratulations!
