Joann Hamann-Buchanan

  • Joann Hamann-Buchanan hosts a most interesting online radio show which includes music and guests, many who are writers within the horror genre. A lot of the Masters Of Horror members have given interviews on her show. Just recently she added video to the audio. Now, I'm not going to say that everything runs like clockwork all the time: sometimes the sound doesn't come on immediately and such, but I think it adds to the allure of the show. Add in the children scurrying around behind and on top of her and you get maniacal, maddening mayhem! Tres cool. I enjoy the home-spun interviews and laid back style she presents. Don't get me wrong, though, she has very interesting guests with a lot to say. A great thing is you don't have to be there at noon Eastern time, either. Joann runs little blips on Masters Of Horror on Facebook with the link so you can watch it whenever you wish.

Interview With Armand Rosamilia

 Armand Rosamilia was gracious enough to interview me on his website. There are a few nuggets about me you might not have known. Say thank you to Armand for being kind enough to care about his fellow writers. Visit his site and see what else he has to offer. There is much there.

Thank you, Armand.

Virtual Book Tours

I'm not going to try to convince anyone to have a virtual book tour, although I believe it is a great idea and I plan to do them. My point in this post is to suggest that authors follow their friends' tours. Why? Well, you're helping them out for one thing, and you're helping yourself out for another. How is this? Any time you go to a new blog and write an intelligent, relevant comment, people who don't know you are going to take notice. I found this out quite by accident when commenting on Carole Gill's blog stops. By being nice, it will be returned to us. Does that mean they will buy your book? It doesn't matter. It's all part of a big circle with little circles off to the side filled with friends, writers and readers. It's like supply-side economics on a friend level. Friends tell friends who tell other friends.

Become a viable, helpful part of the writing community. We will all be better off for it.

Fourth Of July

Fourth of July. A joyous time in this country. We are free to do so much. Let's not forget the reason we are free: it's because of those who serve to protect our rights. Have fun today and celebrate but pay homage to the great ones: the American Soldiers.
