still alive

Hello? Is this thing still on?

OK, for a while there, I guess I forgot I had a blog in favor of Twittering and Instagramming. Not sure anyone else misses blogs really, but I’ve been caught up in hanging out with a very interesting toddler, playing old-school Nintendo games, and writing on occasion. But I’m back, and I have updates for you!

1985-SOSNew Book!
Next Monday, May 15, you can walk into just about any Barnes & Noble store and pick up a shiny new paperback called 1985: STORI3S FROM SØS. This slim edition collects three stories related to The Silence of Six series: “SOS” (previously published as an eBook); “DoubleThink” (previously available exclusively on Wattpad); and 1985, a brand-new novella featuring Max’s parents as teenagers in New York City, 1985. I’m pretty excited that people will get to read that, because I put a lot of personal, geeky stuff in it.

 

Appearances
I haven’t been able to do many in-person events of late (see mention of toddler above, plus day job), but I have some great ones lined up:

As I mentioned, I’ve rekindled my interest in 8-bit Nintendo video games, and now you can watch me play through my collection of nearly 300 NES cartridges! I’m running a series called “NES Alphanumeric!” over on YouTube, which involves weekly, hourlong live streams of me playing a game while providing commentary and chatting with viewers–basically a weekly AMA + video games. I’m usually streaming on WedNESdays, but obviously on alternative days when I have events (see above). Here’s my latest episode, a game called Air Fortress.

NES BLACK BOX Template_gimp_author2I’m planning a special live stream on Tuesday, May 16 at 9 p.m. Eastern to promote the new story collection. See, the Nintendo Entertainment System launched in New York City in October 1985, which just so happens to be the time and place in which my story 1985 is set, and my characters are geeky technophiles, so… Of course the NES makes an appearance! I thought I’d celebrate by playing the game they play in the story, Gyromite. (With perhaps a bonus round of Duck Hunt). Stay tuned for more details, but in the meantime, subscribe to my YouTube channel and/or follow me on Twitter @ecmyers for updates and reminders.

That was a lot of updates all at once. I also have some short stories coming out in various anthologies in the fall, but I’ll save those for another blog post–and I’ll try to come back here a little more often :)
