Repost from @mikebockoven using @RepostRegramApp – Three years ago today, my first novel was released.

A quick story behind this photo – it was taken at the Omaha Barnes and Noble the day my book was released. I had a special trip planned for the day including seeing my book in a store and Godzilla movies at the Omaha Draft House with my buddy Chad. We get to the book store and FantasticLand isn’t on the shelves.

Not being a natural extrovert I didn’t want to go up to the staff, push my glasses up onto my nose and say “can you put my book out, please?” So Chad, being a good friend, went and asked for me. They brought it out, I got my photo and he captured the moment.

This is a long winded way of saying I’m not overly comfortable promoting myself. Part of it is imposter syndrome, part of it is my natural inclination to keep my head down. But that day, Chad did the hard work for me and in the three years since, many, many of you have joined in. Since the book has come out, it’s received over 2,300 ratings on Goodreads, sold over 15,000 copies, gotten a paperback run, been optioned for film rights and brought me into the orbit of some truly awesome people.
I can’t say “thank you” enough to every single person who has read the book, recommended it, rated it (even the bad ones, seriously), and reached out to tell me about it. I’ve even gotten fan fiction, fan art and wild speculation about the book on social media. I can honestly say my life, the last three years, has been some of the best of times because of all of you.
I’m still not really great at promotion, so I’ll say “thank you” again and get back to writing. Hopefully there’s more to come.

Madisen Kuhn and I at her poetry reading from her newest book, Almost Home. It’s splendiferous. It made me tear up. Buy it. Write in the margins about your own feelings. Start writing your own journey.

Book-related lists: Nightmare Movies and Belletrist Books

I’ve used Nightmare Movies as a reference for a couple of episodes, namely Boo Without Goo: Scary Movies for the Squeamish, Exquisite Mayhem, and Elegant Nastiness. I have also used it as a reference for, well, life. I am a screamqueen, after all. (My first Apple ID, way back when it started, was screamqueen@nullmac.com. Still forwards to me, too. Try it. 😉 ) So some very kind and intrepid movie fan and Letterboxd user has created a list of every single movie Newman mentioned in the book. This is no small feat, for Nightmare Movies is a prose book of essays, not a horror movie encyclopedia. Enjoy, and, if you are a Letterbox user, use this handy feature: set the list to dim the movies you’ve seen. I am, feel free to follow me: claradox.

All the horror movies mentioned in Kim Newman’s seminal book Nightmare Movies in one big Letterboxd list

Belletrist Books is a monthly online reading club started by American Horror Story actress Emma Roberts and her friend Karah Preiss. I highly suggest signing up for their email list: lovely weekly literary quotes, indie bookstore recommendations, all kinds of splendid things. They also have a Spotify account, where they create playlists to complement the book choice of the month.
