My ONE THOUSAND SUBSCRIBERS on YouTube goal!

Yes, it's nuts. And it's a lot.

But I know I can do it!

Some of you may know I've started a new series on my YouTube channel and it's become a new way for me to interact with readers, as well as share my love for books. So far I'm posting once a week-this week I ended up posting twice because something came up and I HAVE THOUGHTS! lol

If you guys like me doing this, I may start doing this twice a week, or more.

Reaching ONE THOUSAND SUBSCRIBERS will be tough, but I know I can do it!

HELP! I've lost my mind and fallen into YouTube! O.o

Totally for research, this new journey of mine.

Well, partially.

I actually meant to mention that in one of my videos, but I completely forgot!

Things have been a little nuts!

Anyway, for those who didn't know, I have a YouTube channel that I totally wasn't using. Sure, I had a few book trailers-the one for Deadly Captive actually had over 4k views-but it was mostly just sitting there.

Now I plan to fill it up with videos.

Videos of me talking.

EEP!

Have you met me? I'm not the type of person that does well in front of a crowd. I'm random and weird and say each and every thing that pops into me head.

Which actually translates pretty well to YouTube! lol

Seriously though, I'm really excited to start getting some cool videos up and I hope you'll check them out. I've already had some requests to talk about the Cobras, so I'll be including them in my next video. 

This is just my intro, but if you go to my channel you'll find my first full length video.

And while you're there, subscribe and hit the alert bell so you won't miss any videos!

I'll likely drop some news about my future books in some of these videos, so you don't want to miss them!

And wish me luck! This is kinda crazy, and overwhelming, but...well, so is writing books!

Hope you have an amazing weekend! And drop a comment, here or on YouTube, to let me know what you think!

HAPPY READING!

A NIGHTMARE for XMAS

I hope everyone's holidays were AMAZING! 

And that the stress was kept to a bare minimum. 

Or that you at least get to relax now that it's over. If it is. For some the holidays go on and on and on and...

But we're not talking about that kind of nightmare.

It seemed appropriate to release a book people have been waiting years for on Xmas day, crazy as that sounds. And there were some major advantages to it. Including not having many other releases to share the limelight.

Of course, the limelight might have been mostly on Santa, but we're cool. ;)

So The End has finally released and I'm so excited by the reactions so far. People have been having nightmares and crying and losing sleep! Cyrus would be thrilled!

He had a rough time as this trilogy came to its conclusion, so I'll let him have this little bit of twisted pleasure.

In case you didn't know, the trilogy was on sale during the pre-order. Today is the LAST DAY to get Deadly Captive & THE END at 2.99$, and Collateral Damage at 3.99$.

Usually, I'd share an excerpt along with a new release, but that's hard to do with THE END without spoilers. I did share the prologue and first chapter in an earlier post, so I'll link that if you'd like to check it out.

But I'd like to finish this post with a serious warning, because a lot of people dove into Deadly Captive thinking it couldn't be that dark.

It is. There are subjects that will disturb you. Some readers may find the events of the story triggering. I worked hard to get all three books in horror and dark fantasy because, while there's a love story in all of them, I'm not comfortable calling them romance. Survival is more important than the relationship. Any romance can be dangerous.

This isn't a light, happy trilogy.

But if you've got a thing for revenge...you'll be happy in The End.

BUY LINKS: 

In case you didn't know, I now have an Etsy store and you can buy several of my books for a better price than you'll find anywhere. There's also other fun stuff, and all 3 books in the Deadly Captive trilogy will be available for purchase, signed if requested.

Last thing for this post, a lot of people have been asking for Deadly Captive swag, so I'm working on it now, but we have a new T-shirt and hoodie to celebrate the latest release!

It's set to print every 3 days, so if you miss it once you won't have to wait to long to grab it again. :)

Thank you so much for all your support and please consider leaving a comment, even if it's just to say hi! I love hearing from you guys and as I have more books coming out in the coming year, I hope to have a ton of fun stuff to share!

Let me know what you're most looking forward to! And feel free to ask questions.

You can also interact with me on Facebook, Twitter, or join my discussion group for the most up-to-date news about my books.

Have a great day and stay weird! ((Hugs))

CRITICS aRen't tOo #Bright



From the moment I saw the trailer for Bright, I knew it was my kind of movie.

Action? Check

Fantasy? Check

Visually appealing, gritty, exciting? Check. Check. Check.

My first question was, why didn't I hear about this before? Where were all the ads? The build up? The promo?

Good on Netflix, because they proved they didn't need it. They let the movie speak for itself.

Bright is a movie that doesn't spoon-feed the audience. You're thrown into a world that's best described as a mix of "Lord of the Rings meets Training Day." 

**I wanted to credit the first person on Twitter to say that, but there have been several so I'll just credit the viewers on the #Bright who have a better grasp than the 'Film Critics'**

And oh, the film critics. You know, the kind who gush over La La Land. Yeah, they're trying to tell us not to watch Bright.

Not only that, they're behaving like a strange hive mind, the only originality between their reviews being the way they phrase their insults.

The one that made its way onto 'Moments' is "Worst Movie of the Year."

Now, I get it. Not everyone likes the same thing. But the repetitive, sanctimonious reactions are so dry and tedious it's obvious no one's ass was licked for steller reviews. Netflix didn't even offer a rim job! SHAME ON THEM!

But for the rest of us, Netflix did offer an amazing movie that's different from anything in the fantasy genre that we've been offered in a long time. I would have loved to see this on the big screen, but I'm so happy Netflix brought it right to us. They didn't force us to pay for movie tickets and overpriced popcorn. So long as you can afford Netflix-and that's all a lot of people CAN afford-you have access to a movie made with the same standards of many you have to wait months to see at home.

Since the movie just came out today, I'm going to wait a day or so to write a full review, but I just had to get my thoughts out after seeing the way the movie was getting slammed.

If you read reviews, you will be told you shouldn't enjoy this movie. It addresses touchy subject matter with zero fucks given. It doesn't hold your hand through the plot. Maybe that's what the critics need, but I don't think most viewers do.

And we need movies like this. Movies that don't pander to corporations, mainstream media, or the lovely critics who are clearly unbiased. 

If you hate the movie, that's cool. It's gritty and dark and violent and that's not for everyone. But don't hesitate because of the reviews. Listen to regular people who have nothing to gain or lose from sharing their opinions. 

I loved this movie so much I had to come here and share my thoughts. And I'd love to hear yours as well. I'll post reviews with my own if I get any, so feel free to either leave yours in the comments or send them along.

Sorry for being salty. Sometimes I get overexcited. ;)
