Desirée Lee’s “Last Chance upon a Murder”

lcuam(1)

As all of you know, I’m very happily married to bestselling, critically-acclaimed, award-winning paranormal author Desirée Lee. Haven’t checked out her work yet? You’re depriving yourself of a great experience, and a fantastic read! Might I suggest “Last Chance upon a Murder” on your Kindle?

An ancient rite performed in modern times. A lone woman unaware of her destiny. A preternatural creature hunts for one soul to claim for his own. What havoc will be wrought when the three intertwine? Can two beings from vastly different worlds find peace together, or are they doomed to walk between worlds forever?

“Finding Bigfoot” – Oregon

Matt_Moneymaker

For those of you who have been paying attention, you know that a few months ago my wife (Desirée Lee) and I were fortunate enough to be able to attend the town hall meeting for an episode of the hit Animal Planet television program “Finding Bigfoot“. That took place up in Chiloquin, Oregon.

When that episode airs, we’re pretty much guaranteed to be on-screen, given where we were sitting in the audience, and where the crew had people standing when they told their sightings stories. Most of the speakers were either directly beside, or directly behind us. At that filming, we were told that, tentatively, the episode would air in March. It looks as if this coming weekend’s episode is from Oregon. So, it might be “our” episode. As yet, we don’t know. But, I wanted to let you all have the heads-up – just in case!

1st Bigtruth Article

Harper's History

Not too many days ago I mentioned that I’ve been working on an article for the “Bigtruth” blog. That piece, and the series it kicks off, deals with sasquatch in a more historical light. For those interested, that first article is on-line now. Please check it out on the Bigtruth blog right here. The owner of the blog are calling this series as a whole “Harper’s History”.

Video Sharing?

Question_Mark

I can’t seem to get WordPress to allow me to share video files. I’d like to be able to do that to share video book trailers. What am I doing wrong? What am I overlooking? Can any of my fans help me out with this?

Great News For Whovians!

Doctor_Who_Title_Logo

I typically try hard to keep this blog/website strictly work-related. So, to that end, please let me reiterate something I’ve put up here before as a lean-in: I’m a long-time fan of the television series “Doctor Who” (I’ve been a hardcore Whovian since the early Tom Baker days), and would love to work on an episode for the series.

Now, as I’ve also said in the past, I’m not at all happy with the work that Mr. Steven Moffat has done on the current “Doctor Who”. I talked about that back in late 2013 in this post. Well, for everyone else who feel as I do on this point – and rest assured that many, many, many Whovians the world over share my thoughts on Mr. Moffat’s “Doctor Who” work – here’s great news. Steven Moffat is leaving “Doctor Who”! Read all about it here!

Please let this post also stand as my official request to Mr. Chris Chibnall, who is taking over as head writer, and producer of “Doctor Who”, for me to be allowed to work on an episode. If anyone can bring this to Mr. Chibnall’s attention, I’d be very grateful.

Desirée Lee’s “All Hallow’s Haunting”

Cover_Upright

As all of you know, I’m very happily married to bestselling, critically-acclaimed, award-winning paranormal author Desirée Lee. Haven’t checked out her work yet? You’re depriving yourself of a great experience, and a fantastic read! Might I suggest “All Hallow’s Haunting” on your Kindle?

Teenagers Dane Grissinger and Kit Eisley never meant for things to go so far when they snuck into the Coulbourne cemetery on Halloween night. Dane’s idea of a seance to contact the wife and son that Silas Coulbourne had murdered seemed like a scary, but thrilling prospect for the night. When Dane disappeared during the ceremony, nobody believed Kit’s story that a ghost took him. Now, 10 years later, Kit is visited by an apparition claiming to be Dane. Kit must bring herself to deal with her ghosts from the past and find the truth about what happened to Dane on that fateful night. Some secrets, however, do not want to be unburied.

Enjoy!

Comic Book Lettering

Comic_Balloon

In addition to my other writing work, I’m willing and able to take on comic book lettering duties for others, too. I use a software program called “Comic Life” for that. I use “Comic Life” for lettering on the hit werewolf horror webcomic “MoonWraith“, and the still on hiatus science fiction and fantasy comic book series “Confluence” – both of which are created, written, and in all other ways created by myself, and my very talented wife Desirée Lee.

Anyone interested in speaking with me regarding comic book lettering work, please reach me via the “Contact” page on my website. We’ll work out per-page rates, and other details.

Hidden_Tribe_Cover

The sasquatch blog that I mentioned the other day – the one that I’m going to be writing a series of articles for – has been kind enough to put up a preview excerpt of the new book “Hidden Tribe” by Desirée Lee and myself. Find that post on their blog here.

For those of you who have been hiding under a rock, “Hidden Tribe” is the sasquatch project that we’ve been working on for a while now. The story is told from the point of view of the sasquatch themselves. Here’s the official blurb for the book:

Sasquatch—they live peacefully in the forests, and woodlands. They want little, or nothing, to do with humans, and our civilization. As a whole, sasquatch are tranquil, quiet beings who live harmoniously with nature, and avoid us.
 
But what happens when humans refuse to return the favor?
 
Researcher Alexia Hollander is about to find out. When she ventures into the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, seeking evidence of the elusive species, things quickly get out of hand. Another researcher deliberately gets in Alexia’s way. Campers, and hunters bumble in, adding their own disruptive presence to the quiet work that Alexia wants to perform.
 
With their home territory invaded by humans, a mated pair of sasquatch keep the intruders under close surveillance. They aren’t happy about the presence of the trespassers, and want them gone. Just how far will these normally restrained beings go to protect their family, and themselves? Alexia, and her unwanted companions are about to find out!
We want to take a moment to thank the Bigtruth blog for helping to spread word about “Hidden Tribe”. It means a lot to us!

A New Record

Page_01

On Friday, January 15, 2016 we had a new daily traffic record on our hit werewolf horror webcomic, “MoonWraith”.

Desirée Lee and I want to thank each and every one of you for the continued support of “MoonWraith”. Not sure what “MoonWraith” is all about? Read on:

“MoonWraith” is a mature-readers horror/action/adventure webcomic set in medieval Europe.

Werewolves, descendants of an original pack created centuries ago by a corrupt sorcerer, have overrun the land. The king ordered the construction of a fortress above an ancient silver mine where scholars and historians believe the talisman used by the sorcerer to create the werewolves is hidden away. This talisman is the MoonWraith.

The king’s men strive to find the MoonWraith in the hopes of using the very thing that created the werewolves to destroy them. The werewolves struggle to keep the MoonWraith from being found, suspecting that it is capable of eradicating their species in one fell swoop.

Keep up with, and support “MoonWraith” via the follow URLs, too:

Non-Fiction

Hidden_Tribe_Cover

Partly as a result of the new book my wife Desirée Lee and I have coming out next, that being our sasquatch novel “Hidden Tribe“, I’m going to be writing some non-fiction articles for a sasquatch blog.

My first piece for them is well underway right now. Given my knowledge of the subject, I truly hadn’t expected this first one to be as research-intensive as it’s turned out to be! The topic of this first article, and probably most of the others I write for them, will focus on sasquatch throughout history. The reason for that choice of topic is explained in the piece I’m working on for them right now. As soon as the first article is up, I’ll get a link to it up on this blog/website.
