StokerCon 2022

Hey! I know you’re the only one who reads these posts, so I’ll just direct this right at your face, specifically. I will be attending StokerCon 2022 in Denver in May. I’ll be celebrating my birthday on the sunny beaches of Colorado with my horror homies, sipping back on a thimble or two of birthday ale. I’m very excited to see many of my writing chums and, I suppose, to be seen by them. I have even purchased stickers to share. If YOU are going to StokerCon, I would love to hang out with you. By all means, let me know!

As far as writing goes, I actually HAVE been writing. Valheim is fun and all, but playing it doesn’t put a lot of words on the page. The project I’m working on is pretty bonkers. It’s a Halloween comedy-horror creature feature that starts crazy and just gets crazier. I feel like I’m getting back in the zone on this one. I’ll tell you all about it at StokerCon 2022! If you see me out there, don’t forget to ask for a sticker!

Here’s a picture of me playing Valheim. (That’s not troll balls, that’s my character. His hood and cloak are made from troll hide, so his head and shoulder kind of look like troll balls in this photo. The developers did not model balls for the trolls. Also, note the severed troll head in the background! Take THAT, monster!)

Free Dark Fantasy Novel

Howdy, Chum! I just wanted to drop a reminder that my dark fantasy novel, Chuggie and the Desecration of Stagwater, is absolutely FREE for your Kindle reader. What is it about? I’m glad you asked. Chuggie is the perpetually-intoxicated embodiment of Drought on a world called Mag Mell. As he wanders the land, he stumbles upon the remote city of Stagwater. There he finds new friends, new enemies, love, betrayal, and a few bottles of booze. Will it be enough to keep his thirst at bay? Will he escape the devious plans of the men in power? Will you immediately want to read the next two books in the series? The answers to these questions and more can be found in the pages of Chuggie and the Desecration of Stagwater!

You may wonder, “Why, Brent? Why are you giving this book away for free?” The answer is, I am willing to bet the price of an e-book that you’ll like it so much you want to read more of Chuggie’s adventures. Heck, I bet you’ll even want to be one of the cool kids who leave a review!

Destroy the Files – REVENGE!

Hi folks! I just wanted to drop a quick link for the latest episode of Destroy the Files, a podcast I do with my dear friend Kate Jonez. In the latest episode, we talk about con artists, revenge, a list of reasons why my pal Nate should get a katana, and lots of other stuff you’ll have to hear to believe. Like my deep dive into The Cask of Amontillado. WOW. Listen here:

Dr. Steel – Homecoming, Pt. 1 Lyrics

All my life it seems I’ve been too scared

To chase my dreams or make them real

No one understood or cared

About the boyhood dreams he dared

Pushed around, the child abused

Ridiculed, so broke and bruised

Knocked down and cast aside

I’ve had enough, let’s turn the tide

Find out what’s inside of me

Something burning to break free

Imagining a better scene

Manifest a new reality

And I’m never going home

I’m never going home

Never, never, never

Going home

This new life I have began

The time has come to take a stand

For what I do and who I am

It matters not who understands

The broken pieces of my heart

A mind mixed up, fell apart

Create a world of a different sort

A brand new life, a fresh new start

This is what I’ve always been

Meant to be, it’s destiny

Now this is me, it’s clear I see

What the world has done to me

And I’m never going home

I’m never going home

Never, never, never

Going home

Because this is now my home

I am coming home

This is now my home

Oh, I am coming home

I looked all over the internet for the words to this song. Google. I looked at the first page of Google results. It was clear that nowhere on the internet were these lyrics published. So I transcribed them as best as I could. Oh, you KNOW I stayed up all night transcribin’ that business, dawg! Anyway, let me know if I got something wrong, buy my books, stay off my lawn, et cetera.
