The Ann Arbor Marathon and the Coolest Runner on the Course

 The Ann Arbor Marathon is this weekend, and the coolest runner on the course is named Ty and she blogs over here --->  TyRunMan (Note: The results are in, and TY finished the marathon 3rd in her age group!)
  Why is she the coolest? Because she has a dry wit, a quirky edge, so cross-fit that her downward facing dog twists into a mustard soaked pretzel, and because she donated to my RUNWELL fundraising page.

TY didn't donate for this exposure and heralding her coolness, but, if you want to donate, I will be broadcasting yours to the world (unless you prefer not to). Go over to my donor page, contribute $1, $2, $10, but for $25 or more, I will tattoo your name, product, book, blog, etc... on twitter and a blog post like this one.

As a recovering addict of many years and a believer in the power of the natural highs that running provides, Runwell is an organization whose purpose is close to my heart. The organization raises funds for addiction treatment and raises awareness of the role a running lifestyle can provide for those in recovery. CHECK OUT MY DONOR PAGE HERE

I will be sporting this shirt over two half-marathons this year

Christa has stories splattered about the book world, and one has landed in Year'sBest Hardcore Horror, Volume 2.She's been a tireless advocate for addiction awareness and treatment, and has written a truly touching and personal blog post. Check it out:

You’ll probably agree with me when I say that the word ‘epic’ is an overused one. ‘That was an epic party last night, man.’ ‘The cupcakes Betsie made for Jess’s party were epic!’ ‘Whoa, Claire just delivered the most epic of epic burns!’ Despite the propensity for ‘epic’ to be thrown around like a Frisbee at a frat house, I’ve never shied from attributing the term to certain works of fiction, or from feeling more connected to those works because of it.

When I was in middle school, I was always primed for the …

Happy to announce that my novella BODY OF CHRIST is on the Preliminary Ballot of the Horror Writers Association Bram Stoker Awards.


Thanks to everyone who voted.

BODY OF CHRIST is the story of a young boy who secretly builds his own Jesus out of communion wavers and the flesh of his dead father. (Of course, his Jesus will rise, like Christ-figures tend to do. )
