Redneck Eldritch & World Horror

RELowRes w:names

The paperback of Redneck Eldritch is live on Amazon! The Ebook and Kindle versions will be available for pre-order soon, and will be officially released April 28th. I’m excited and honored to be included in this collection with such talented authors, and I hope fans of horror, H.P. Lovecraft, and the sister Space Eldritch anthologies will enjoy this brand new installment of cosmic dread.

For any who are curious, you can read a sneak peek of my story, “Mine of the Damned Gods” here on the Cold Fusion Media website, along with excerpts from several other stories in the anthology: http://coldfusionmedia.us/redneck-eldritch-sneak-peek-mine-of-the-damned-gods-by-sarah-e-seeley/.

The World Horror Convention will be in Provo April 18 – May 1. I have a light schedule, one panel and one reading. I’d be delighted for any in attendance to come listen to me discuss H.P. Lovecraft and read from my Redneck Eldritch story next to David J. West Dave Butler (*David West is still awesome, the schedule after the 17th just shuffled us readers around a little).

Here is my World Horror Schedule:

  • Friday, April 29 — 7:15 – 9: 45 PM: Book Signing
  • Friday, April 29 — 12:45 – 1:45 PM: Readings (30 min. each)
    Sarah E. Seeley & David J. West Dave Butler
  • Sunday, May 1 — 12:45 – 1:45 PM: Why We Love Lovecraft
    Eric Swedin, David J. West, Nathan Shumate, Carter Reid, Sanford Allen, Sarah E. Seeley

I will also be a book vendor with authors S. A. Butler and David J. West all four days. So come find me in the dealer’s room! I’ll have my usual publications to sell. Nathan Shumate will have copies of Redneck Eldritch available at his booth to purchase, and I’d be pleased to sign your copy should you acquire one.

As a member of the Utah HWA, I’d also like to encourage any who are considering to attend the World Horror Convention. While this is a smaller professional conference and the memberships are a little pricey, the investment is well worthwhile and will give you access to amazing networking opportunities within both the horror and general writing communities. There will also be some great panels and presentations, a workshop opportunity with David Farland for a small additional fee, and tons of cool stuff to participate in like ghost hunts. Check out the membership rates and programming here: http://www.whc2016.org/.

In other news, I’m currently working on edits for my Windows Into Hell story, “The Armadillo’s Song.” The anthology is still anticipated for release in October from Curiosity Quills Press.

And I’m slowly but steadily writing out the novel-length rendition of my steampunk story, “Curio Cay.”

Exciting things!

To my family, friends, and followers, thank you, as always, for your support and for believing in me. You inspire me and give me courage to try daring things…like write horror. And other fiction. And blog. I hope you enjoy reading these stories as much as I’ve enjoyed creating them for your entertainment.

March Updates: SLCC FanXperience Schedule & Redneck Eldritch Anthology

SARAH-E-SEELEY

I’m excited to announce that I’ll be on two awesome panels for Salt Lake Comic Con FanXperience, taking place March 24-26 at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City. If you’re going to this amazing fan event, please do come listen to me, and to other authors and artists, as we discuss the Real Science in Science Fiction and the Universe of H.P. Lovecraft! The more people we have attending our panels, the more inclined event orchestrators will be to bring back these topics–and us contributors–again next year. So join us! And if you come to my panels, I might just bring some squishy foam brains to toss out that shamelessly plug my author blog. More on that later…

Here is my schedule!

56d4b7f6-daf8-4ac7-b4f0-7184ac1c1072

  • Thursday, March 24 — 5:00 PM: Real Science in Sci-Fi Literature and Film (Room 255F)
    Charlie Pulsipher, Sarah E. Seeley, John Steiner, Eric Swedin, Howard Tayler

56d4c18d-4e10-4022-bc88-048bac1c1072

  • Saturday, March 26 — 8:00 PM: “Not Meant to Voyage Far”: Sceince in the Universe of H.P. Lovecraft (Room 255B)
    Nathan Croft, Sean Hoade, Sarah E. Seeley, Nathan Shumate, Eric Swedin, David J. West

Isn’t the shout-out artwork for these panels gorgeous? I’m so excited! And I will be selling books all three days at the Xchyler Publishing booth (Booth#ToBeDetermined in the vendors room). You can find more info by visiting saltlakecomiccon.com or browsing the panels here: http://saltlakecomiccon.com/fanx-2016-schedule/. I also keep my schedules for various events under my Events tab.

Oh, yes, and I mentioned squishy brains… Come to my panels, and the Xchyler Publishing booth, and I may give you a little souvenir that will look something like this (haven’t quite decided on the final design yet) (Now showing the updated design). I’ll even sign it for you, if you’d like–no purchase necessary! If you’re not into brains, no worries–I will also have a variety of bookmarks that shamelessly plug my fiction available for you to take at your leisure. 🙂

September Writing Updates

I haven’t posted updates on my writing and events in a while, mostly because I’ve been waiting for some things to fall into place before I have any details to share. I decided I couldn’t wait any longer, so here’s what’s up.

I will be attending Salt Lake Comic Con this year as a panelist. I have not, at this time, received my schedule. When I do, I will eagerly post it so you all will know where to find me. I’ll also be selling my books at the Xchyler Publishing booth in the vendor area, table Black 17.

A couple weeks ago, I signed a contract with Curiosity Quills Press to publish my novelette “The Armadillo’s Song” in a collection of work based on Steven L. Peck’s A Short Stay in Hell. This anthology, organized by James Wymore and Dr. Peck, is tentatively titled Windows into Hell. I’m extremely excited to be included in this work alongside some fabulous authors.

Currently, I have two short stories and one poem out on submission to magazines. My main work in progress for the near future is finishing up the novel-length expansion of “Curio Cay” (my steampunk novelette which came out in Steel and Bone this June).

Exciting things are in the works. Thanks everyone for all of your support. For anyone planning to be in Utah in a couple weeks, I’ll see you at Comic Con!
