God Laughs When You Die...The Book Signing!


I had a great experience signing copies of God Laughs When You Die, at Dark Delicacies in Burbank. Lots of friends showed up, bought the book and hung around. My friends Steven Weber, (Wings, The Shining, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip), Sandra Oh (ARLI$$, Grey's Anatomy),Nate Cordry (The Daily Show, Studio 60)and Jim Turner (ARLI$$, Bewitched) also showed up. David J. Schow (writer,The Crow, Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Leatherface. The Beginning) was also on hand to lend his support. It was great! Thanks to everyone who came out.

Looks like I'll be doing a signing at the Arisa convention in Massachusetts, sometime in January. Come on out and shake a hand.

I got invited to appear on Elvis Mitchell's syndicated pop culture program, The Treatment, to discuss the book. Elvis is a friend and I've been a longtime fan of his work as a journalist and pop culture/ film critic, so this should be great.

Still waiting on A Father's Work, to grace the pages of Weird Tales. Meanwhile, Manny Miracle Is Alive And Well And Dying In The 29th Dimension! should be appearing in Carnifexpress's Lords of Justice anthology soon.

I just completed a film in South Africa, The Killing of Wendy, for Brainstorm Productions. It's a murder mystery- comedy. I got to work with ten great actresses and David Hixsom, who directed a beautiful film called Beat The Drum. Over the summer I worked on Queen of Media, the biopic of radio shock jock Wendy Williams. Should be interesting.

And of course there was that foot amputation on Grey's Anatomy. Yep. It hurt.

More later.
