A Little Something To Look Forward To This Summer ...

I generally prefer to refrain from talking about things like this until they happen but I also prefer to not keep you folks out of the loop in terms of what's going on in my life, so I just can't resist. While there is always a possibility that things could somehow not work out, the plan is for my first EVER magazine article to be published in Mad Monster Magazine's third issue, coming out early this Summer. I'm not at liberty to discuss any ideas on what the content is about but I will say that it's an article idea I came up with and it will be perfect Summer reading material. I am honestly as excited as I am stressed about this, as it's out of my comfort zone and something i've never done before, but I know it's all going to be worth it in the end when I see something I wrote published in a magazine, a brand new magazine i'm a big fan of no less. As stressful and self doubt filled as I am in putting something out there in the horror journalism world, outside of my comfy and cozy little blog, I am having a blast so far whipping this article up and I hope you all have as much of a blast reading it once it drops. I have a feeling you will!

So please bear with me if I don't update around here as often as usual for the next week or so. This article is eating up a serious chunk of my writing time and I don't see myself being able to put the focus 100% back on blogging until it's done and sent off to the people in charge of the magazine, which I don't want to do until i'm totally happy with every word in it. In the meantime, subscribe to Mad Monster and i'll give you more details when I can!

Dude, congrats! That is super awesome, and don't sweat it. We all read your posts because you have interesting things to say, and I'm sure the people at Mad Monster agree! I just ordered the first issue, so I'm sure I'll be an avid reader for a long time!
