Crazy Times!

I know you haven’t heard from me in awhile. It’s been crazy busy at the Casa de Emz. My gram died at the end of September, so a last minute trip to LA while I was nursing a cold turned into a 3 week health drama!  While still mourning Gram, there was sickness in the house, HorrorAddicts.net to keep going, the completion of Sweet Dreams novel for editor review, a couple of book signing appearances, and HALLOWEEN!  Another trip to LA, Disneyland, the Queen Mary, and back home all to do it all over again! I’m pooped.

That being said, I do have some news.

  • Sweet Dreams is in the proof stages, so it will hopefully release soon!  I’m hoping for Dec. 1st… let’s hope it’s sooner!
  • I will be going to Loscon, so all you So. Cal peeps, or those going to Loscon from other places, I’ll happily see you there. Don’t forget to approach me and say HI!  I might have swag with me. 🙂
  • Dusk’s Warriors, the sequel to Night’s Knights is well on it’s way to being completed. I am going to begin recording the beginning of December.
  • HorrorAddicts.net is still going strong, come on over and listen if you like.

All that being said, I have tons to do! Talk to you all soon!

P is for Podcast Launch Week!

This week is Podcast Launch Week!
My friends over at Podioracket have their first show on Thursday, I will be a guest.
Fandom Today started their season recently and I am preparing to record my first show in a few months on Friday night.

What goes into a new season of Horror Addicts? A whole hell of alot. I couldn’t do any of it without my staff. Well, I could, but it would suck.
First, it’s about authors, bands, and movies. We need all the right people at all the right times and mix them together, and hopefully it all clicks.
Then I need to collect all the data for what I will talk about, which is somewhat easy when you have as great listeners as we do who email me stuff.
Now… I have to make the theme music- that’s a big one. And there is a surprise this season, so it will take me a bit longer.
And I need to redecorate our studio since I tore it up recently to take some pics for the Book Island picture tour.
Geez… I have a lot to do.
Can’t wait to bring another awesome season to the Horror Addicts out there!

Y is for Yikes 2.0

So like… where did my time off go?
No one knows, but it’s definitely gone. Horror Addicts is gearing up for our 5th Season. 5TH! I can’t believe it. And the shows aren’t even locked in. Last season it was sewn up tight by this time. Not this time. This time I have dropping out authors, missing bands, no one is prepared!  ACK!!! Probably not the best to take off when everyone else is taking off. Note to self: Never hiatus at this time again.

I’ll never listen to my note. I’ll do it again– just watch!

Besides Horror Addicts, I’m trying to wrap up my Sweet Dreams print novel project. The cover model has been paid. The editor has been sent the final draft (well.. the final before she sends it back to me and I redo it all. Hhehee.), and the 3rd book in the series, True Love, is almost complete at Podiobooks.com.

Next week I’ll be on Podioracket.com live, so if anyone wants to hear me, keep posted to my main blog at http://emzbox.wordpress.com. For now, I must go send out deadline notices because you know… I’m so good at that.  Too bad I wasn’t better at the deadlines themselves. Hehhee.

Horror Addicts & Horror Fest

Editing Horror Addicts #39 tonight. Also… adding all the Horror Fest audio I’ve had since March 13th. Yikes!

Just another show…

Today was the taping of Horror Addicts #39 on Second Life. Went well.
Couple of SL voice issues… where the audio was clippy, but you won’t hear it on the aduio file. I have to say, though we have a bit of that, SL Voice has really improved over the last year or so. Mark’s story was 49 mins (way over– Yes, I’m chastising you MARK!) So for SL Voice to last that long at all is amazing.
Show featured Mark Eller, Malfaktor, and the movie Slither.
Still trying to find a replacement for Snapvine so my staff and new authors can leave messages for the fans. Haven’t found it yet. Possibly Google Voice. Not sure yet.

Show will take approx. five hours of editing, levelating, re-editing, posting, and pimping. That will happen this week sometime.

Got to meet some new and old friends at the taping and after. Hi! To MJ Hahn, who was in the studio and a new guy Perry. Also met Melk from Turkey and Bonk (not sure where he was from, but nice accent nonetheless!). K and Matty were there in all their bunnydom glory and Crap won the costume contest with the best Blob outfit.

After, spoke to Rhonda and Wolf about the London School of Journalism Con happening on SL at the end of April. Geez!  I have no time for anything!  My calendar is so booked up this month, it’s insane. Also plan to be at a Podioracket show this month as they will be talking about Podthology. No, still no release date yet.

Book Island is a pretty happenin’ place for Easter Sunday. Thought I would have no crowd, but as it approached 9:25a, they all started flocking in. If you missed it, sorry… show will go live April 8th. Also planning on uploading the Bonus tracks from Horror Fest this week. Pics will be posted on http://www.emzbox.ning.com and — blogged about my awesome NK party on SL that happened awhile ago. To read all about it… go here: http://emzbox.wordpress.com/

WOOSH!  Exhausted! Time for Emz to REALLY get Unplugged…
