Behold! It's the cover for CANDI 2069 #1! This book will premiere at Flashback Weekend next month, and I'll be there along with the artist, Paul Schultz, and the person you really want to meet - Samantha Strong (AKA CANDI). Don't miss your chance to get all three of us to sign it. It's rare to see all three of us at a show together.
I'm in a new anthology!
You can pre-order your copy of Best Lesbian Erotica 2015 now. One of my stories, "Lovely Lady Liberty," made the cut. I'm happy it was chosen, as I had a fun time writing it and always thought it needed a good home. I should have copies of the book for sale at my table in 2015 (as well as a couple other new anthologies featuring me / Nicole Wolfe).
Check out my horror host show...
My online horror host program, Weird-O-Rama, now has twenty-four episodes available for your viewing pleasure. The current episode shows Lady Frankenstein. You can find the show on YouTube and more information at Weird-O-Rama.com. I grew up as a "monster kid" watching Nightmare Theatre hosted by the Shroud. When I learned that there were no such programs around here, I started my own. I also have a blog for my host - Victor Von Psychotron.
My next convention is...
Flashback Weekend August 8 - 10th. As I mentioned above, I'll be there with Paul Schultz and Samantha Strong to premiere CANDI 2069 #1. They have a good guest line-up, and the show is always well-organized and a fun time. This will probably be my last show of the year unless I find a one-day show somewhere close. My convention schedule is short this year due to me saving vacation time for a possible trip to Vienna this December.
Days of the Dead Indianapolis on June 29th was a fun time despite Dario Argento not being there due to a bad fall he took in his Rome apartment. Meeting Nancy Allen, Tawny Kitaen, and Camille Keaton was a treat. I also met Sybil Danning again and got kisses from her, so that alone was worth the trip.
Thanks to all who stopped by the Pickle Press table at Appleseed Con earlier this month. It was great to see old friends and make new ones.
Don't forget the Pickle Press blog, the Facebook fan pages, and my Twitter account...
I keep the Pickle Press blog updated more often than the website here (I shoot for once a week), so be sure to check it for more photos and weekly updates of my various projects and convention appearances. I also have a Twitter account (@NikHavert), so you can catch me there as well. I have three fan pages on Facebook as well, one for Pickle Press one for my non-comic book work, and one for Weird-O-Rama. Check them out when you get a chance.
I've begun a non-fiction project that I hope to have finished by next summer. It's a guide to post-apocalyptic films released during the Cold War. It will involve watching a lot of good, bad, and goofy films, so I hope my wife can put up with me. There are more updates on the Titles page in the "Future Titles" section. Look for the UPDATED! or NEW! markings.
Looking for work or more about me?
If you are a penciller, inker, and/ or colorist, please feel free to check out the "Future titles from Pickle Press" part of the Titles page for job opportunities with Pickle Press. I will post the current state of various projects that need drawn, inked, and/or colored. If you're looking for work with Pickle Press, that will be the place to find it.
You can use the links below to find out more about me and my various projects and the people with whom I have created these things. I hope you will continue to support Pickle Press and indie comics.
