For those of you who were curious and couldn't figure out the secret password, here ya go!

If you click on the link in the limerick (it's Poe) and take a very close look at the pad that says "My Top Secret Passwords" across it, you will see the answer right there in the first password space.

What's not barbecue, nor chili...but both? SAUCE!

Happy Monday.

Howdy Everyone!

I will be the guest of Hi De Ho Comics (Booth #318) and Sina Grace at the UCLA Festival of Books on Sunday April 26th, 2009 from 12-2pm.

If you come by and visit they will have Death's Daughter available for sale – and if you know the secret password you will get a surprise!

Oh, and while you're there don't forget to check out 826LA's "Teeny Tiny Vaudeville" at the ETC, STAGE from 1 to 3pm. If you do, you will see an awesome show culled from the minds of the amazing comedy duo Ben Acker and Ben Blacker (with the musical stylings of Adam Busch and COMMON ROTATION!) Yippee!

What was that? I forgot to tell you the secret password, you say?

It's a secret. One you have to guess. Check out the limerick below for the clue:

There once was a lady from Kent
who made time with both ladies and gents
She was an expert on Poe
and sucking toes
and coming where others had went

HINT: The secret password is not barbecue, nor is it's both!

BookBanter Ho!

Check out this mucho cool interview I did for BookBanter!

We did this at a coffee house in the middle of the afternoon. Everyone stared at us, but we just kept on talking. Damn you, staring eyes!

And here's another cool interview for you at B-Movie Man, staring eyes!

(God, I love the staring eyes) ::::::::

Cedric Hollows in: DIAL M FOR MAGIC

I just wanted to take a moment out of my busy day (sitting on my couch, phone to my ear, waiting for the City of Los Angeles Business Tax Office to kill the canned music and pick up the damn phone!) to tell everyone about my friend (and collaborator - he's doing the illustrations for my kid's book, The New Newbrige Academy) Sina Grace.

Sina is a comic book writer/artist and he just finished his first novel "Cedric Hollows: Dial M for Magic". If you're like me and you LOVE stories that are highly original (and totally fun to read), you should definitely check this book out.

It's a little bit noir, a little bit kookie and a whole lot of fun (with coolio drawings to boot)!


Ended up talking to the SWEETEST guy at the Tax Office and he fixed all my problems with a smile (figurative) and a wink (also figurative).
