My three-year-old niece decided to “read” Little One to my sister, who sent me the video. She is very cute and has some funny things to say about the book. I am using this video with permission from my sister and my niece, but I am keeping their names out of YouTube and this website to protect their privacy. Watch the video below and give it some likes if you want!
Haven’t read Little One yet? My niece is cute, but I would take her words with a grain of salt. Click here for more information about the book and links to purchase.
Somebody brought to my attention that I’m listed in WV Living Magazine‘s ballot for their The Best of West Virginia Awards. I wish I had seen this sooner. Only a week left to vote!
Now, I’m not going to tell you I’m the Best Author in West Virginia. But if you want to vote for me, I’m sure not going to argue with you.
Also, this is cool—I grew up in Davis (sister town to Thomas), and those two towns are ALL OVER this poll! Maybe because it really is the coolest! (Sorry Pocahontas County—Tucker County is in my blood forever it seems)
So go vote! And share this all over the social nets!
Happy Halloween, folks! Here’s some Halloween bluegrass for ya.
The first one is performed by Blackstone Valley Bluegrass, but the real reason I’m eager to share is because the lyrics are written by my grandfather Marcel “Pepe” Huguenin, also remembered by some in the Connecticut area as “The Bluegrass Coyote“! Lots of great memories with him at bluegrass jams and teaching me how to play bluegrass in his garage. Thanks, Pep! Hope you have a great Halloween!
And thanks to Mark Lynn Ferguson from over at The Revivalist for finding this spooky song from one of my all-time favorite bluegrass artists, Del McCoury!
Del McCoury Band and The Fairfield Four deliver a perfect tune to get you and your goblins in the Halloween mood. Recorded for the All Star Bluegrass Celebration II, this one’s become a contemporary classic.
I am supremely delighted to announce that the cover to my upcoming novel, When the Watcher Shakes, is finally ready for you to see! (If you were an email subscriber, this will be old news to you, since I sent you a peek at it earlier this month).
I’m very happy with the work by Design for Writers. You guys should consider them if you ever need some work done for yourselves.
Without further ado, When the Watcher Shakes:
Getting ready for the weekend! Carving a jack-o-lantern with my wife is one of my favorite Halloween activities.
I would write more but it’s getting late and I really didn’t have anything to say, just wanted to show off my silly mustached pumpkin. Have a good night!
