We had an amazing time at Flashback Weekend (pictured above with filmmaker John Borowski), even selling a few more copies of my book, Discover the Horror. I got to do a little Q&A on Saturday morning to talk about the book (thanks Mike & Mia!!!) and answer a few questions. My good friend Bryan Martinez not only recorded it, but made a nice little video out of it, with film clips and all! You can see it below.
Please remember that if you have read the book, PLEASE go on to Amazon and post a review. It doesn’t have to be an essay, but can just be a sentence or two. But the more reviews it gets the more circulation it will get for similar titles. So please take a second and post your thoughts. And besides, I would love to hear them as well. Continue reading
Totally forgot about posting this last week! But better late than never. Last week, while we were at the Music Box Theatre for our book launch, I had the great opportunity to sit down with Ian Simmons from Kicking the Seat podcast. The first part of the podcast, we talk about the book and what keeps me busy. But after that, if you’re a lover of Argento and the giallo, then you’re going to want to continue to listen!
After I get done rambling, you’ll get to hear Ian, along with Aaron Christensen (Horror 101 with Dr. AC) and Bryan Martinez from The Giallo Room YouTube series, as they discuss Argento’s 1982 film Tenebre. Ian and Aaron have been discussing a lot of Argento over the last few months so check out some of the older podcasts to hear more.

Last Saturday, we had the official book launch party for my book Discover the Horror, at the Music Box Theatre in Chicago. I also had the wonderful opportunity to introduce the film The Giant Claw (1957) before the signing in the lounge area. Now honestly, going into this, I was hoping the film would have a good turnout, but expected it to be 4 or 5 of my friends that were coming out to support me. In reality, there was quite a bit more than that! In fact, we had several people there that had never seen the film before, so we knew they were in for a real treat. Continue reading
For those coming out to the Music Box Theatre this Saturday for our Book Launch, we will be giving away Kitley’s Krypt anniversary shirts, for FREE! Below is what is on the front and back of the shirts.
We only have a limited supply of these so when they’re gone, they’re gone! Hope to see you on Saturday! Continue reading
Discover the Horror is now available to the world! You can order your copy on Amazon now (just by clicking HERE) or you can order it directly from us. Just click on the BUY THE BOOK link at the top of our site, right below the banner for all the details.
It will be about a week before we have physical copies in our possession, so depending on how long you want to wait, and if you want it signed, you could always get it quicker from Amazon. Your choice!
Also remember, that if you’re in the Chicago area, we are having our official Book Launch Party at the Music Box Theatre on Saturday the 27th! There will be a special screening of The Giant Claw at 4:45pm, and then there will be a short Q&A with me afterwards, before we move out to the lounge area where you can buy your copy of the book and get it signed, if you so desire! And no, there will no charge for the signing. Not now. Not ever.
We have a Facebook event posted for this HERE or you can get information from the event page at the Music Box and buy your ticket for the movie HERE.
It’s official! After many months of planning, I can finally announce this. On Saturday, July 27th, at the Music Box Theatre in Chicago, we will be having the official book launch for my new book Discover the Horror! To help celebrate this event, we will be hosting a screening one of the most epic of giant monster movies from the ’50s before hand… The Giant Claw!!! One of the greatest Turkeys ever to grace the screens. Tickets for the screening are only $11 and you can purchase them, as well as finding out about the book launch event, by clicking HERE.
The screening starts at 4:45pm, with a small Q&A with me after the film. Then I’ll be in the lounge with copies of my book. The normal retail price for the book is $20, but at this event, we’ll have them on sale at only $15. So make your plans to head into the city in about 3 weeks to see a highly entertaining, yet very cheesy film, and pick up your copy of Discover the Horror!
With the release of my first book later this year, we are calling our 2019 tour something a little different than the usual “World Tour”. For this year, we will be calling it the Discover the Horror Tour 2019! We’re hoping to not only get some advance advertising about my book, but also to help promote fans to learn more about the horror genre. So much to read, so much to watch, and so much to learn!
