Sometimes the title comes to me first, and that triggers the story idea - for instance, that's how I came up with many of my short stories and a couple of my novellas, such as Cult of the Black Jaguar.

Rarely do I have trouble deciding on a title - the real problem is when you get two or three variations on a title and have to decide on the final one.(less)

Well, it’s been a week now since the first StokerCon, and I’m finally caught up with work enough to get my own thoughts and reminiscences down for posterity.
I have to begin by saying that this was one of the best—if not THE best—horror conventions I’ve been to. Kudos to the con team—Lisa Morton, John Palisano, Rena Mason, Brad Hodson, Kate Jonez, Erinn Kemper, and all the volunteers—for making... Read more of this blog post »
