New year, new stuff

Hey everyone, just wanted to give you a head’s up, since I realized I haven’t posted here in a while.  First off, we’re discontinuing the monthly pin club.  There’s a lot of reasons why, but I mainly felt like I wasn’t designing the best pins I could, and I wasn’t telling the best stories that […]

Hiatus

Hi everyone. So I just got in the April(!) pins, and while the 1 year anniversary was supposed to be a huge, cool project (I got a bunch of stickers made, the pins are color change, etc. etc.), it’s looking like these aren’t going to ship for a while, as the factory used the wrong […]

“The Spotted Growth” – the March 2019 short story

It started out as a small red bump.  Richie thought it was a pimple. Richie had never had a pimple on the side of his neck before, but skin was skin, and he had heard of pimples on people’s eyelids before, so this didn’t disturb him, besides the general itchiness of it.  No one mentioned […]

“Blackheart The Undying” – the February 2019 short story

Marsha ducked into the small bookshop to avoid the pouring rain.  It had been a long week, filled with too many overdraft penalties, breaking her phone, and of course, forgetting her bus pass at the office the day she forgot her umbrella at home.     The rain was really coming down now, but Marsha figured […]

“Inside the Coil” – The January 2019 short story

So it’s 11:37 pm, and I’m obviously running out of time.  The feathered serpent has marked me, and once it finds me, I’m done.  Well, even if it doesn’t find me, I’m also done. As I dictate this, I already feel my left arm going numb, and my vision is starting to blur a bit. […]

“A Krampus Christmas” – the December 2018 short story

Mikey opened his eyes, and he realized his body was cramped.  He tried to move, but found that he was inside some sort of a rough canvas bag that scratched at his face and hands and feet.  Sure that it was a bad dream, Mikey pinched his cheeks hard, but just yelped in pain. He […]

“The Wendigo” – the November 2018 short story

Martin sighed as he took his seat on his private jet.  It had been a long, trying month, dealing with all of the protests at the pipeline, and he was glad to finally be leaving the great plains for his home in upstate New York.   The entire ordeal with all of those Native tribes […]

Thank you

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I just wanted to let you know how appreciative I am for all of your support this past year and a half.  From the nervousness of clicking “launch” on my first kickstarter and hoping to at least get a single pin funded, to launching the Evil Pin Club, to the massive delays […]

“The Great Pumpkin” – the October 2018 short story

Donny took another swig of his vanilla milkshake as he drove the gleaming white station wagon into town.  His window rolled down, Donny smiled as he rolled past the quaint little wooden sign announcing that he was now in Patchville, New York.  His son, Donny Jr., slept soundly in the back seat, his tiny frame […]

Losing the fight, but not losing hope

I spent most of Saturday, like most of you, dealing with disappointment, anger, frustration, and the longing for justice. Whether you want to call it voting against women, not believing sexual assault survivors, or political cronyism, the confirmation of Kavanaugh to the Supreme(ly Unjust) Court of the United States is a terrible blow to any […]
