Look Into This Light! (Oh, Wait!)

Jack the Pumpkin King

Yesterday’s screed took a bit longer than I had expected to, so today I’m making encouraging you to watch this fantastic Halloween Light Show 2012. If you want to see something like this all year round, please donate to the “Monica Wants A Mansion” fund otherwise known as the “buy and review the author’s books” initiative.

If you did not chuckle at that last line, consider how many poor, unlucky gnomes had to suffer for its telling. No one ever cares about the gnomes. Just lawn decorations, that’s all they are.

Want to Interview or Hire Me? Send Fan Mail?

Would you like to hire me? Because my projects and manuscripts are in flux, I am always open to discussing new opportunities with publishers and studios. As a full-time writer, I spend a portion of my time seeking new gigs–so don’t be afraid to reach out. If you’re interested, please e-mail me via my Contact Page. I typically reply to work-related e-mails within one-to-two business days.

Want an interview? If you’d like to interview me or request a guest blog post, please connect with me via the contact page, too. Due to time constraints and other communicative concerns, I typically don’t follow up on requests via social media.

Keen on sending fan mail? I am also happy to engage with readers and fans. Please note that I am unable to reply satisfactorily to certain types of queries related to the companies I work for due to the agreements I typically sign. If you have a question about a TV show or a line of books, the best way to get your answer is to contact the studio or publisher directly.
