Doings of Interest

Robin Spriggs as The Man - tight crop - antiqueFor all my friends who have been curious enough and kind enough to inquire, following is a brief list of my current “doings of interest.”

Item: Polishing up Baltazar Bumbertazm’s Book of Ineffable Drooms, a comprehensive collection of prose poetry that I hope to have turned in to the publisher by early 2017.

Item: Will appear as “Harley” on the TV drama Containment, premiering on The CW in early 2016.

Item: Will appear as “The Man” in the off-kilter indie comedy Gilda Sue Rosenstern: The Motion Picture! in late 2016.

Item: Closing in on completing the design of a fast-paced adventure board game featuring a host of all your favorite characters from The Wyrd City Chronicles.

Item: Currently at work on a new collection of fiction, also promised to a publisher but whose title and subject matter must remain, for the nonce, undisclosed.

Item: Will soon begin autographing 500 signature pages for a special edition of Madhouse, a shared-world horror anthology due out from Dark Regions Press sometime in 2016.

Item: About to begin work (as an actor) on the second season of a super exciting TV series (emphasis on the word “super”) that I’m not yet allowed to discuss. So let’s just leave it at that.

That’s enough for now, I think.

Thanks, dear friends, for your kindness and curiosity. Go forth and make big magic!
