THE VAMPIRE DIARIES trade paperback just shipped! A whopping 418 pages with stories by me and B Clay Moore and art y a wide team of creators featuring Tony Shasteen and Cat Staggs. This is 39 issue in ONE massive trade, and it looks fantastic. Great bargain on these stories too, less than 64 cents per tale! I did not know the book would be this big and gorgeous, and just in time for Hallowe’en!

The two issues I wrote are in this as well, with line art by Tony Shasteen and Xermanico! Pick it up for yourself or the TVD fan in your life.

I can’t help but be intrigued.

Damn. I was planning on using “Hardley Savage” as my nom de plume for my erotica.

  3. To keep skinny body and maverick soul together, Iggy’s become a DJ, a car-insurance pitchman and a fashion model. If he had to live off royalties, he said, he’d have to “tend bars between sets.” As I listened to his enthusiastic stoner Midwestern drawl, I thought: If Iggy Pop can’t make it, what message does that send to all the baby Iggys out there? In a society where worth is judged by price, for better or worse, what are you saying to someone when you won’t pay for the thing he’s crafted?

    A few days before Iggy’s lecture, Australian novelist Richard Flanagan won the Booker Prize, the most prestigious in the literary world, for his Second World War story The Narrow Road to the Deep North. Just in time, it sounds like: Mr. Flanagan told reporters that he was making so little from his writing that he was thinking about packing it in and becoming a miner. (He comes from a small mining town in Tasmania.) The prize money of about $90,000 and the following sales bump will allow him to continue, but most of his colleagues aren’t so lucky: “Writing is a very hard life for so many writers,” he said.

    This is borne out not only in the quiet sobbing you hear in corners at poetry readings, but in the numbers. This summer, the Guardian newspaper reported that professional writers’ salaries in Britain are collapsing, falling almost 30 per cent over eight years to $20,000.

    — From here. The “Iggy” in the first paragraph? That’s Iggy Pop. (via graemem)

I had the pleasure of seeing this in the theater right after it swept through the festival circuit, so all anyone was saying was “you have to see this.” No one knew what it was - it was a game changer. And to say it scared the shit out of me would be a gross understatement; I couldn’t go camping for a year because of this movie.

    Calling to get a referral for a therapist to kick this depression’s ass was probably the hardest thing I’ve ever done.
