Hey, everybody! 

Whelp, it's the end of the year and you know what that means: it's awards season!  Kicking us off is the annual This is Horror Awards.  If you're a fan of mine and want to see me succeed, I thought I'd make it easy on you all by listing which of my 2019 efforts are eligible.  If you're interested in nominating me (please don't feel obligated) you can do so by e-mailing with the subject line "This Is Horror Award Nominations 2019" by 12:01 a.m. PST on January 8, 2020.  You can nominate up to two projects per category.  Further information and rules can be found here.

Cyber Monday is Here!

Nothing is better than shopping with no pants on!

Since there are laws in this country that frown upon that, Cyber Monday is a now thing for the holiday shopping season.

Of course, shopping from the comfort of your couch was always a thing. At least with Cyber Monday, you get the deals of Black Friday, without all the screaming and hair pulling...unless you're into that. No judgement!

This Cyber Monday (or any day, really) check out the works of Stephen Kozeniewski on Amazon.

OR, if you like to listen on the road, check out his books on Audible instead!
