Spotify #YearInMusic 2015

Spotify has come out with a pretty awesome little tool to give you information on the music you've streamed throughout the year. If anyone is curious about what I listen to a lot of the time, you can check out a little collage I made of my results right here.

The Godfather Part II screenplay in Italy

New Project

I'm going to be working on a new screenplay with my cousin over the next 6 months or so. Details will be pretty much kept under wraps for the time being, but I wanted to let you all know that there is something new in the works. This will be my first attempt at something of this nature, so I'm excited to learn some new terminology and formatting specifications. Hopefully, if we have any luck on our side, you'll see our finished product on the big screen someday. Stay tuned.

Sunburnt Farmlands of the Midwest

For those that have been waiting, my next title is available now. Marketing doesn't start until Cyber Monday, but I figured I'd give a heads-up post here today. Sunburnt Farmlands of the Midwest contains 223 pages broken down into 23 separate stories, ranging from 2 and a half pages at the shortest to 30 at the longest. To get more information on the title and to find out where you can buy, check out the post for the title. (Protip: Amazon has a HOLIDAY30 promo code you can use for 30% off for a limited time.) Special thanks to my family and everyone who helped me out in some way. I wouldn't be a mediocre "artist" with a slave labor job making sub-poverty wages if it wasn't for you. Or, well, you know what I mean.

Down in the Dirt July-December 2015

Down in the Dirt Magazine has released an anthology of the second half of 2015 titled The Intersection, which includes my piece, Nimble, that was published in the hello goodbye goodbye hello issue (October.) This anthology is 420 pages long and includes over 150 stories and poems from almost as many authors. Support the indie writing scene and potentially even find a new favorite author. You can view the listing here and pick up a copy over here.

Tragedy in Paris

In the wake of so many people being senselessly killed tonight, I think it's a good idea to reach out to a loved one and get reacquainted with who we are as human beings. Connect with someone, share a meal or a drink or just good conversation and help spread the word of these people who lost their lives for no reason. If we let things like this tear into the fabric of humanity any more than it already has, we're only going to be worse off in the future. Love each other.
