In my continued pursuit of getting the news out about my books, Instagram (IG) was suggested to me by my poet friend, Brian Corrigan. He puts a new short verse up every day, sometimes more than one poem. He’s quite good. If you’re on IG check him out. Anyway, since he suggested it, I thought I’d give it a try.Read More
“Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens…” These words were first penned by Oscar Hammerstein II. They were sung by Maria who wanted to calm the children in her care during a frightful thunderstorm. Later, they would have more than thunderstorms to worry about. Still, the thought of writing something to pull us out of the gloom, I know, appeals to every songwriter, novelist, essayist, and humorist out there. It’s just so hard to do.
I’m very fortunate to be surrounded by comedians, also known as my friends and family. Still, they are having a hard time too. What to do, what to do…?
Here I am as promised with pictures of my office. I admit I will either be fussing around with book placement in the future, or I’ll just learn where I put things and move on. Yes, there is a bit of a madness to how I have the books on the shelves. Some are alphabetical, some are in collections, and others (from recently unearthed boxes) just fit.Read More
Hello, everyone, and welcome back to another episode of The Alexie Aaron Podcast! It's a snow day for me, Aaron the Webguy, here in Michigan, and it just felt like a good day to stay inside and ramble on for a while. Battling sickness, Alexie comes to the mic to drop some insightful knowledge while I do my best to keep up. Hope you all enjoy and stay warm on this snowy day.Read More
Hello, everyone and anyone, Aaron the WebGuy here to present to you some truly spooky links to binge during this Halloween season. And I do mean binge worthy, since if you decide to follow me down the rabbit hole, you will have hours of video to scare the heck out of you. This is what I would consider a "deep dive" into some truly disturbing fiction that blends in just enough reality that it makes it somehow all the more unsettling.
As you can see by the title and images, I will be talking about a certain urban myth that was born in the internet age. The Tall Man, aka the Slenderman, is something I am sure many of you have heard about, and it is a monster that has become a modern day boogeyman. His "tendrils" of influence spread far and wide, and Slenderman is operating in the shadowy woods all over the world.Read More
The twenty-second book of the Haunted Series has been released on Amazon. This is my most favorite book of the series and I hope all of you are going to love it.Read More
Hello, I’m Stephen Murphy, resident ghost of the Haunted Series. I’ve been tasked by Alexie Aaron to interview some of the characters who appear with me in the series. Alexie wants an unbiased look into the inner workings of these novels. I felt that I could be the most transparent (pun intended) and offered my services.
If you haven’t read The Return yet, I suggest stopping here until you do so.Read More
Time to update you on the progress on book #22, Risen. It’s in its second edit, and we hope to release it by mid-October. So, it will be the Halloween book this year. I never know when exactly these books will come out. I write them and then leave them in the capable hands of the Red Pen and then the Beta Reader. I do work with the Red Pen answering questions and acknowledging, and working on, any problems with the manuscript. Our aim is to give the readers the best reading experience we can. I want to put you in the book with the characters. When we finish, I’ll check the word count, but I suspect this is one of the largest books, if not the largest.Read More
