Super Nervous

Short post. I have an interview later today with Amazon and I’m super nervous. Hoping I get the job and ready to just get this interview over with. Wish me luck, I feel like I need it today.

Catching Pokemon (but not any inspiration)

I have been out three nights in a row with my wife and sister-in-law (and the peanut of course) playing Pokemon Go. That game is addicting and so much fun. The first two nights, we mostly just drove around and the two of them did most of the work (my wife caught me a lot of cool Pokemon). Yesterday, we went walking around in a nearby town with a group of fabulous people we met the night before. There’s some people out there who think the game is silly but it is amazing to see everyone out walking around and interacting. My only warning is that you should go with someone, especially when it gets late. There are bad people out there who might target players. We haven’t had any issues but we’ve been sticking to our town and the other, where all the stops are in the middle of town near police and fire stations. 

Unfortunately, my writer’s block is back and kicking my ass. I had been working on my SRT Archives stories (which you can find the original chapters/drafts at my other blog The SRT Archives). I reached a standstill at editing and adding to the first series. I’m hoping after this week (mentally preparing for an interview this Friday with Amazon) I can reboot my writing brain and get back to the series.

Any Pokemon trainers in the southern Illinois area? Anyone catch anything cool? I got a Pikachu and I’m so excited about it.

Project H – Home (A Story from Southern Illinois)

I did a guest blog this month for a certain awesome blogger. Here is my post for Project H- it’s about my home.

Some New Stuff for my Collection

My wife and I got to the bookstore early today. Turns out, Chuck Palahniuk was already there (two hours early). So we beat the line, got me a hardback version of the first Fight Club, and got a few things of mine signed by Chuck. It was nice that he was already there, there was no rush to get everything signed and get my picture with him.

In all, I got the hardback (and combined) version of the Fight Club 2 graphic novels.


Signed and personalized.


I apologize for the crappy quality. My phone’s camera is on its last limbs. I also had my new copy of Fight Club signed, as well as the scratch and sniff FC2 bookmark (which explains the above photo), and my Comic Book Day and SDCC exclusive FC2 comics. 

Now, to leave you with one last picture. Better quality this time. This was after the signing when Chuck Palahniuk asked me the most important question of the day- “choke or fight?”

Tuesday Morning

Woke up early today- for me at least. Had to bring my car in for an oil change. I have already walked around the entire electronics department at a window shopper pace and even searched the cheap Blu Ray bin for a copy of Fight Club since the one I own is in a box somewhere in Oklahoma or Texas.

Glad I got here when I did. There’s ton of cars pulling up now.

When I actually wake up, I’ll be a littls more excited. Going to a book signing today with the wife. Her Mother’s Day gift to me is us going to see Chuck Palahniuk and me gettng some of my stuff signed by him. I’m also hoping I win a raffle for a leatherbound rare copy of the original Fight Club book. When he came out to San Diego, I didn’t get one, but I got a signed severed arm, which is pretty badass and creeps out people who come visit us.

I need coffee. Or a Red Bull.

I will most likely be posting a couple for times today, since I’m going to that awesome event.
