My Nemesis Matt Betts Takes Over My Blog!

Matt is just the worst. THE WORST.  He’s been my nemesis for years and he just won’t stop. Won’t stop writing poetry, won’t stop putting out books, won’t stop being successful, etc etc. Such a jerk. Anyway, he has a brand new book titled The Boogeyman’s Intern that I may or may not have read months and months ago (I did) and … Read More

Pimp A Friend Friday: My Nemesis Matt Betts Has a New Book!

Matt Betts  is the Doofenschmirtz to my Perry the Platypus, and he has a new book out. It looks AWESOME. A group of treasure-hunters hits the high seas chasing a tip from a mysterious source. If it’s true, it could be their biggest score yet-literally-a massive robot the size of a skyscraper lost since the last war, worth a sizable … Read More

Get To Know A Bram Stoker Award Nominee

After the official Bram Stoker Awards nomination ballots were announced, I was contacted and asked to give an interview as an official nominee. (I’m a nominee! Yay!) The awards are later this week and they didn’t have time to run the interview series, but I’m allowed to put my interview up here. Please take a second to read some of … Read More

Pimp A Nemesis Friday: Matt Betts

  Wait, when did “Pimp a Friend Friday” turn into “Pimp a Nemesis Friday?” When I decided to host Matt Betts, of course. He’s my favorite Nemesis ever. Matt’s new poetry collection is titled “Underwater Fistfight” and it’s poetry for people who think they hate poetry. His work is often funny and poignant. Poet. Pirate. It’s all the same really. … Read More

It’s What’s Inside That Counts Something lurks inside Deena Riordan. She never once questioned her life in the criminal underworld as the star of Mr. Marsh’s illegal empire and his youngest assassin. Her ruthless demeanor and dark magical powers have kept her at the top of the heap for years. But one day she pushes the sorcery too far and … Read More

My Nemesis Has A Book! And It’s Awesome!

I’m sure that you are familiar with the bloodthirsty rivalry that I have with the nefarious Matt Betts. What? You aren’t? Well, that’s probably a good thing because, while we were once into hamstringing each other every chance we got, we sort of became older and wiser and…well, lazy.  Instead of throwing grenades while racing through the yard, we started … Read More

“Be Mysterious: Writers in Masks” features Matt Betts

So, not the traditional sort of mask here. I’ve been growing a beard – for no reason really. It started out as shear laziness – not wanting to shave over the winter holidays and just went from there.   Sometime in the new year I hit that point where I actually had to start doing maintenance on it: trimming it … Read More

See No Evil, Say No Evil

You all know that I adore Matt Betts.  We scuffle, fight, stomp around, take scowling swipes at each other, and neither of us have even made it into the HWA yet.  Which cracks me up, but seriously.  I’m so going to beat him one day.  Really. But besides just being loads of growly fun, Matt is an awesome writer.  Witty … Read More
