Mr. Swinebottom walks out, spinning and handling a cane with ease and grace. He is dressed in a very dapper tuxedo, complete with top hat, pressed coat and pants, and shiny shoes. And yes, his walking cane is decorated to look like a candy cane. How clever.

“Good evening, ladies and gentleman. This is Reginald Swinebottom Presents. Thank you for joining us this Christmas and holiday season. Tonight we are presenting Blogmas: 2018. And today is December the 1st, the first day of Blogmas.”

Brief Humor & Check-Ins

Indie Authors: Blogmas, anyone?

Is anyone out there doing Blogmas for December 2018? If so, I’d love to know, including what topics you’ll be covering. Fellow indie authors I’d especially love to hear from. I’d like to piggy back on some sort of structure if it’s already out there on the wild wild web. But if not, I’m sure Mr. Swinebottom and myself could come up with something…dangerously interesting.

Please leave a comment below with your blog and I’ll give it a looky-lou.

Thanks, all. Please, pass the tea kettle; it’s getting chilly out there.

Happy Thanksgiving: From A Horror Author (Humor/Serious)

Happy Thanksgiving from me at Peregrine Arc.

Let’s all slaughter a bird, sit down, and talk.

Mr. Swinebottom Presents: A Word From Our Supporters, In Song (Editor Opening)

Mr. Swinebottom walks on stage, holding a couple of cue cards. He is dressed in a bright yellow, plush pencil costume which he clearly finds quite cozy and comfortable. He smiles once briefly and wipes some sweat from his forehead with a handkerchief in the shape of a pink eraser. After a few stretches, he clears his throat vigorously and hums a tune through his nose to find his pitch, closing one nostril and then the other.

“And now for a word from our supporters. Feel free to bounce along in your seats, ladies and gentleman. Clapping is permitted, during this performance…”
