Here we are again kiddies, the baddest of bad, the scariest of scary, the Coffin Hop 2012. Last year I wrote several posts about authors I dig that you should be digging too. In my “10 Questions” feature I have from time to time, John Everson , Nate Southard, and Jeff Strand entered the arena and survived their battles. This year I want to take it back a bit. There is one guest lined up to step in the arena and as soon as the interview comes back, you’ll be in for a treat. The other days, I want to focus on what music, movies, books, and such influence me and my work.
Before I begin however, there are some housekeeping things to tend to. First, to see what other amazing authors are on the Coffin Hop go here and hit the Linky Link 2012 button, to check out the Scavenger Hunt at Melissa Smith’s website visit here, and to support the upcoming Coffin Hop anthology to benefit literacy programs by picking up some sweet Coffin Hop swag drag your mouse this way and click here.
For those who have found me here for the first time, hello. I want you to step inside and get comfortable. Fire up a cigar and pop open a beer. Kick your feet up on the table, hell I don’t care.
But once you settle in and feel like everything is going to be ok, I’ll plunge you down into the dark depths of humanity and the evil lurking in the shadows of our very minds.
No, really…I’m glad your here and please feel free to roam around the site (nothing will bite…much). This year is new to me because before I only had anthologies to promote, but this year I have my controversial novella In Memoriam. A signed copy is part of this year’s prize package as well as an electronic copy of the Coffin Hop Anthology E.P. ( a short preview of next year’s full anthology), and a few nice paperbacks from some of my favorite horror authors. To be entered in the drawing, you must make a comment on any blog post this week during the Coffin Hop or sign up to follow the blog (comment once-comment often). You can earn extra entries by following me on Twitter or “liking” my fan page on Facebook (links are over on the side). Already signed up for all the social media places to find me? That’s fine, just comment and you’ll be entered!
Well, that does it for today. Tune in Wednsday for the top 10 albums that haunt my dreams and me scream when I write and on Friday night, author Tim Lebbon stops by to answer the “10 Questions”!

Plunging folks into the dark depths of humanity, eh? Okay, I’m in.
We all have our calling, but looking back it sounds like a bad bathroom joke.
