Meet the Author – Peggy Christie

Hey guys! I’m doing a thing!

The Scriptorium is a new bookstore in Clawson, MI. They’ve only been open a short while but they are promoting and supporting so many local authors with a ton of events, readings, signings, etc. And they invited me to read a little from my latest vampire novel, The Vessel, as well as have a little Q&A afterwards (possibly a bit before as well).

 Available at Amazon

So if you’ve got the time, come on down, up, or over to Clawson on Saturday, February 24, 4pm. Click below to get more info from The Scriptorium website. Hope to see you there!

Networking and Jobs!

Hey, folks. Thanks to the lovely Nicole and Shad, who took up arms to work the HorrorHound, Columbus show a couple weekends ago, we have some information to pass on to all of you. Do with it what you will – perhaps there will be a new project to work on or you can get your goods in a store in Ohio!

This is what we received at the convention. If you can’t make something out, or need further information, don’t ask us to clarify! This is all we’ve got.

First up is from Barbara Adams, aka Diva of the Dead. She’s a well known presence on the horror convention scene (apparently) and she’s looking for someone to write a backstory for her Diva character. Additionally, she’d like someone to create a weekly 3-panel comic. Sound like something you’d be interested in? Then by all means contact her!

Next is the business card from Robert Kirchgassner: Blogger, Author, and Movie Fanatic. He has a couple of alternate personalities and I know one of them interviewed GLAHW at the HorrorHound convention in Cincinnati this past March. Maybe you’d like him to promote your stuff? Why not send him an email?

And finally is Around About Books. They buy, sell, and trade quality used books. They ALSO take books on consignment so if you’d like to get onto their shelves, contact them!

Keeping my Pimp Hand Strong

I always forget that I have the opportunity to pimp myself on this page! Aside from being able to add more content to the GLAHW website, I can talk about me. And don’t we all like to talk about ourselves?

Stop shaking your head.

Anyway, Daulton Dickey just interviewed me for his website to shed more light on women in the horror industry. So why not head over and check it out? Please and thank you.

If you know any women in horror that should be given some attention (or maybe it’s YOU), send a message Daulton’s way and get interviewing.

Consignment Program with Oddmall

Hey folks! Near the end of the Oddmall convention this past weekend, one of the organizers walked around handing out contracts for their consignment program. Seems pretty standard – like most book stores with a 60/40 split – but I’ve scanned the whole contract and posted images below.

If you’d like to have your goods available for sale in Ohio, just print a copy, fill it out, and send your stuff their way!

(obviously if you have any questions about this, please contact the Oddmall folks – GLAHW is NOT charge of this program)

Mass Hysteria Has Been Unleashed! | Michael Patrick Hicks | GLAHW

MASS HYSTERIA, by Michael Patrick Hicks

Today’s the day! Mass Hysteria is officially available and on sale everywhere. The eBook costs only $3.99, and the paperback retails for $14.99 but has been discounted pretty nicely at both Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

The eBook edition of Mass Hysteria can be found at the following:

Google Play | Smashwords

Here’s the synopsis:

It Came From Space…

Something virulent. Something evil. Something new. And it is infecting the town of Falls Breath.

Carried to Earth in a freak meteor shower, an alien virus has infected the animals. Pets and wildlife have turned rabid, attacking without warning. Dogs and cats terrorize their owners, while deer and wolves from the neighboring woods hunt in packs, stalking and killing their human prey without mercy.

As the town comes under siege, Lauren searches for her boyfriend, while her policeman father fights to restore some semblance of order against a threat unlike anything he has seen before. The Natural Order has been upended completely, and nowhere is safe.

… And It Is Spreading

Soon, the city will find itself in the grips of mass hysteria.

To survive, humanity will have to fight tooth and nail.


 

What Readers Are Saying

“Fun, horrible fun, from start to finish.” – Horror Novel Reviews

“It’s fast paced, action-packed, and bloody. Really, almost everything a horror gore-hound could want. … Undeniably talented, Michael Patrick Hicks shows evidence of a rather deliciously depraved mind…” – SciFi & Scary

“Mass Hysteria is a hell of a brutal, end of the world free for all. A terrifying vision of a future gone mad with bloodlust, Mass Hysteria will haunt your nightmares.” – Hunter Shea, author of Just Add Water and We Are Always Watching

Mass Hysteria was a brutal horror novel, which reminded me of the horror being written in the late 70’s and, (all of the), 80’s. Books like James Herbert’s The Rats or Guy N. Smith’s The Night of the Crabs. There are a lot of similarities to those classics here-the fast paced action going from scene to scene-with many gory deaths and other sick events. In fact, I think Mass Hysteria beats out those books in its sheer horrific brutality.” – Char’s Horror Corner

“I’m telling you now, this book isn’t for readers with weak stomachs. It is brutal in all the right ways.” – Cedar Hollow Horror Reviews
