Re: Weekly World News Writer's Werewolf Forum

For you, Dira, I'll not only send a book, I'll send a jumbo-sized 36" X 24" suitable-for-framing Hour of the Beast poster featuring the cover art of the great Martin McKenna, signed by the author -- a $54 value.

Re: Weekly World News Writer's Werewolf Forum

Heading to my Yale college reunion on Friday. Getting the jitters a bit. Will I be freaked out by how OLD everyone looks?
On the upside, will be signing some copies of my book which is kind of neat. While I'm at the bookstore, I'll finally buy a Y sweatshirt. Don't know exactly why I never owned one in the past -- I suppose I didn't want to seem ostentatious. Although I DID own a Harvard one. And I admit I'd be tickled when someone at the gym would ask, "Did you go to Harvard?" And I'd say, "Oh no, I wasn't smart enough to go to Harvard... I went to Yale.

Re: Weekly World News Writer's Werewolf Forum

I'm writing a story for my horror blog about a female werewolf and lady vampire having a knock-down, drag-out catfight in a Bulgarian bar. I can't draw worth a damn, so am holding a reader contest. I invite any interested amateur artist to submit a drawing, and the winner gets a neat prize. So if you love drawing -- especially werewolves -- this could be fun little project.  Anyone who's interested can check it out at http://freedomshammer.wordpress.com

So I'm holding a fun reader art contest. Anyone who's interested can submit a drawing by July 1. The winner will get a really cool prize. Any artist can mail it to me at cfors10917@aol.com The details are on my blog http://freedomshammer.wordpress.com.
Neat idea, huh? Meanwhile, I'm headed to my Yale College reunion tomorrow. Haven't seen those folks in YEARS, and so that oughta be pretty interesting...

Re: Weekly World News Writer's Werewolf Forum

Went to my Yale College reunion over the weekend. It was a bit freaky seeing how old people looked. But after getting over the initial shock, I had a blast. Got to slow dance with that blonde California cheerleader who was WAY out of my league back then and is now a MILF. Best part was getting to sign copies of my book Hour of the Beast http://freedomshammer.com. at the Yale bookstore. It was such an honor to be sitting alongside a half dozen alumni authors who'd written all these serious books on subjects like Jewish soldiers in Germany and the boom and bust economic cycle. With my werewolf story! Very heartwarming that the first three buyers were classmates I'd hung out with in my dorm freshman year.

Re: Weekly World News Writer's Werewolf Forum

Yikes, the website I created to promote my book Hour of the Beast has a forum for readers to discuss it, but it's been inundated with spam. I've spent most of the morning deleting each of the 250 bogus "users" one at a time. It's like stomping on cockroaches (which is about how I see these creeps).

Re: Weekly World News Writer's Werewolf Forum

Attended the Horror Writers Association annual conference in Uniondale New York to promote my book Hour of the Beast http://freedomshammer.com. Got to meet quite a few big names like Peter Straub, Heather Graham and Joe Hill, the son of Stephen King and a great horror writer in his own  right.

Re: Weekly World News Writer's Werewolf Forum

This past weekend I attended the American Library Association annual conference in New Orleans to promote my werewolf novel Hour of the Beast. I was impressed by the number of librariarians who wanted it for their libraries. Interestingly, most wanted it for their Young Adult section. Which wasn't really the intended age group, but if that's what they're buying, that's what I'm selling.
And of course it was quite an experience hanging out on Bourbon Street with 8,000 women who all looked like Hollywood librarians -- Julia Roberts with nerdy glasses -- and let their hair down in spades after four drinks.

Re: Weekly World News Writer's Werewolf Forum

Slayer, I am so delighted that you liked the book and appreciate so much that you bought it! If you wouldn't mind posting a little review on Amazon, it would be wonderful. And spread the word to all your online pals. (Let those on a budget know there's an E-book available for just $5 at http://freedomshammer.com)

Re: Weekly World News Writer's Werewolf Forum

So I spent July 6 to 9 at the Black Filmmakers Festival in Miami. Dynamite event, with workshops led by the likes of Robert Townsend (who opened the floodgates with Hollywood Shuffle, made on credit cards in 1987). A producer is interested in the film rights to my novel Hour of the Beast http://freedomshammer.com. and asked me to whip out a 20-page treatment. I'm trying to turn this from a chore into a challenge: How can I actually make the movie BETTER than the book. Anyone who's read it have any thoughts? (No spoilers please)

Re: Weekly World News Writer's Werewolf Forum

Well, this week I'm headed to the Flashback Weekend horror convention in Chicago. Supposed to be a big book-focused (as opposed to movie) event. So at this festival, I really ought to be able to sell quite a few books of Hour of the Beast http://freedomshammer.com

Just published a blog titled "Prince William Leads Fight to Ban Werewolf Hunting" http://freedomshammer.wordpress.com
which I think is pretty funny.

Re: Weekly World News Writer's Werewolf Forum

Dear werewolf writer I've got an amazing Idea for your books!! Dress yourself up as a shaman witch craft of the dark side, have a very nice cabinet filled with different things you could possibily sell off aswell, or not, but you should make your little corner as dark and sinister as possible for your book, show something that your werewolf story would have in it! smile This is my idea for selling things, but since I just made four things in two years time I can probably give it to you to do until I get enough money for all my artywishes... haha

Re: Weekly World News Writer's Werewolf Forum

Dira, the hand looks awesome! The white fur is an interesting choice that will sure start some conversations at horror conventions. I'll email you my address. I want to get my hands on that thing as soon as possible. The Shaman costume concept has potential. There actually is a shaman mentioned in my book, Hour of the Beast, http://freedomshammer.com. A South American who can shape shift into a were-jaguar. Can think of a few goodies for that cabinet: A pentagram pendant ALA the Wolfman that you can wear to protect you from the curse, silver bullets, etc. I'll put my thinking cap on.

Re: Weekly World News Writer's Werewolf Forum

Well, my first horror convention Flashback Weekend in Chicago was a blast. Sold a lot of copies of my book Hour of the Beast. Some neat pix of me with fans in crazy costumes at the convention are posted on my blog http://freedomshammer.wordpress.com. Robert Englund of Nightmare on Elm Street fame was there, along with the guy who played Pinhead in Hellraiser and castmembers from The Walking Dead. Best treat of all was meeting this site's own moderator Busboy, who was gracious enough to buy a book! Turned out to be a really cool, really friendly guy with lots of thoughts on how to push the book.  Dira's werewolf hand hadn't arrived yet, so I created one of my own as a "stunt hand" until it arrives.

Re: Weekly World News Writer's Werewolf Forum

Had a blast at Horrorfind Weekend in Gettysburg PA promoting my werewolf novel Hour of the Beast http://freedomshammer.com. Julian Sands from Warlock was there, Dee Wallace from the Howling, director John Waters and Rowdy Roddy Piper, the wrestler turned actor who starred in John Carpenter's classic paranoid sci-fi flick They Live.
Most satsifying part was that several attendees bought the book the first day and by the last day stopped by my table to tell me how much they loved it!

Re: Weekly World News Writer's Werewolf Forum

Nice review of Hour of the Beast from the Horror Fiction Review. They call it "a fast-paced, rip-snorting, action-packed, sexy college romp."
