Rue Morgue

As Seen in Rue Morgue Magazine

on December 30, 2010 - 8:33am


Walked into a Chapters store yesterday while celebrating Yetch's birthday. And what should I discover? The January/February issue of Rue Morgue magazine has hit the stores.

 

We quickly flipped to page 14 and there they were.

I laughed and said "I'm famous!", much to the confusion of fellow shoppers nearby. Ok, so I'm not really famous. I need a word that expresses kinda-sorta-famous-in-a-particular-way. I tried using "fermus" but I'm not sure it will catch on.

I snatched up three copies - one for me, one for a friend, and one for my mother if she can't find it at her local store - and happily carried them to the front cash. The woman behind the desk, as she was ringing them in, said - half stating, half asking - "you have...three of the same issue."

"Yes" I said. "I certainly do."

Now, of course, I just need to finish the next set of Plague Doctors. There are 12 in total at various stages of completion. I expect to have 4 ready by next week.

There is still one left in my Etsy store from a previous series.

Do I need to makes signs for my tables at shows that read "As seen in Rue Morgue Magazine" now? ;)

Christmas Decorations & Big News (99% Confirmed)

on December 7, 2010 - 7:57am


From a grand Halloween display in my office, I moved directly into tackling Christmas decorations in the living and dining rooms.

With the exception of one gift, I am done Christmas shopping.

I have one or two gifts to make, and then I'm free to create. This is important. It will be the first time in months that I will be able to create in an organized space, without distractions of other things I should be doing.

Not only do I look forward to the simple act of getting messy while making some monsters, but it's the last thing on my 'to do' list. In fact, I've been rushing like a mad woman to get the rest of the things done so I can get to creating.

Because you see, I have some news.

It's 99% confirmed. And being a pessimist sometimes, I generally like to keep news to myself until I know the good is going to happen. But I don't think I can keep it a secret any longer, and I don't think I can wait until January.

So here it is.

I'm going to be in the January/February issue of Rue Morgue Magazine.

Well, my Plague Doctors will, in their Needful Things section.

Frightfully Fun Tunes on a Friday

Album cover with haunted house for Rue Morgue's Hymns from the House of Horrors
Everyone seems to be off to a convention this weekend. For those of us left behind, I offer a selection of creeptastic music.

The first is Rue Morgue's "Hymns From the House of Horror". You can download the music and the cover art until the end of the month.

If you're still not satisfied, head on over to Monster Spookshow Radio where the two year anniversary compilation has just been posted.

I don't need no stinkin' convention. I have ghoultastic grooves.

Now excuse me while I dance my pout away.
