No, I’m not talking about a disease or rash, though it is rather contagious. In fact, I can’t remember having a pop song stuck in my head like this since disco was cool. Lord, I’m old.
Anyway, a friend of mine has a new song out and she needs your support. Back in May, Natalie Loftin won Sony and Clear Channel’s “Radio Star” contest. Last week her first song — “Burn” — was released for download and to pop radio stations. If the song does well she’ll get to make a full album. If you go to her Web site you’ll hear a snippet of the song and find links to all the music download sites and a list of radio stations that can play the song. The download will cost you less than $1. Hey, you can’t buy any of my stuff that cheap. Not only does Natalie have an incredible voice, but she is really the nicest, most humble person you could ever hope to meet. I hope you’ll support her.
Oh yeah. This is supposed to be about my news. The Internet Review of Science Fiction just published their October issues, which includes my literary criticism “Horror’s Hearth and Home: Use of Setting in American Gothic Fiction.”
I’ll be doing a signing and reading at the Moore Public Library in Moore, Okla. at 7 p.m. Oct. 28.
The next day I leave for Horrorfind in Phoenix for that three-day convention. I have a reading/signing scheduled for Saturday morning.
I’ve been invited as a guest to the Panda*Monium convention to be held in Norman, Okla. Nov. 19-21. That should be a lot of fun.
That’s it for now.
