Hey everybody.

What do you mean "haven't heard anything from you in over a month"? That's crazy talk. You're crazy.

You're all crazy.


Okay, you're right. It's been a while since my last update. But the truth is I don't have a whole lot of news at the moment.

I've gotten a LOT of messages from you guys checking to make sure I'm okay and still alive. I want to say huge thank you for all of the concern and well wishes. I'm trying to carve out some time to stay more connected to everybody, which means taking a little more time off work.

This Wednesday, I'm thinking about dropping by the discord server for a little while just to hang out and chat. Not sure what time would be best. What time are normal people awake and off work? If you feel like dropping by and chatting, add a comment and let me know what time would be best.

We can talk about (almost) anything you want. But if you're looking for topics I'm well-versed in, may I suggest:

-Bruce Campbell Trivia

-Theories of Time Travel

-Simple food recipes for bachelors on a budget

-The Appalachian Trail

-Avengers Spoilers

Things I'm not so great to talk to about:



-That thing right behind you

-My love life

-Game of Thrones Spoilers

What else is new?

In the last month, I went to Texas Frightmare Weekend in Dallas (my first ever convention. Pretty awesome experience). Got super sick (what is the flu, anyway?) and worked a little a lot too much.

Volumes 2 and 3 of Tales from the Gas Station are coming along great, although Volume 2 is currently about 3 times longer than Volume 1, so I have to do the heartbreaking job of deciding what has to be cut. You know that old hypothetical about "gun against your head, you have to pick one of your loved ones to die, who will it be"? It feels a lot like that.

I'm currently holding off on posting any new story updates until I can get Volume Two ready to go to print. I'm not exactly sure when that will be, but I can say with confidence that it's not far off now.

Anyway, I'm off to drink my body weight in coffee.

Jack, are you and my dad related? Because you definitely don't call. (Like dad)


Can we get a hint to the gas stations location, Jack? Maybe the state it is located in?

This is for the real Jack, you're doing fine man, writing takes time and is very intricate in the webs of fiction. Take your time with it, relax, and we all hope you have a good day!
