Today, I have some bad news to share with you all. I've decided to scrap my blog series. That's right, the upcoming horror blog series Chiller Chronicles will not be premiering in October as previously promised because I am no longer working on the blog. If you were excited for the blog, I am sorry. However, I do have a good news to share with you so keep reading.
The reason I've scrapped the blog series is because I've got something much better in the works. While writing the stories for my blog series, I began to realize it wasn't suited for a blog. It was better suited for a podcast! That's right, Chiller Chronicles is going to be a podcast instead of a blog series!
It's going to be a fun show. You're going to love it. Here's how it's going to work. You will be fully immersed into the story as I narrate you around an old mansion in the middle of the woods. As you explore the old, creaky house, you will find doors which beg to be opened. Once inside the room, you will be greeted with memorabilia and items foreshadowing the story to come. Each room will contain an audio device which will play the stories called Chiller Chronicles. And when the story is done, I will narrate you out of the room and on to your next room and story. So, you see, it's a story within a story. I'm very excited about this concept and if you like unexplained mysteries, unsolved murders, terrifying encounters, and audio dramas then this podcast is perfect for you. Each season will feature a new location to explore. Season 1 is The House. I don't have a release date for you yet. I'm currently writing and producing episode one as a tester. A pilot episode, if you will. I have a couple people I will be sharing the first episode with for feedback. If you're interested, let me know. Either comment below of email me at BooksbyBond@gmail.com.
Of course, producing a podcast can be a lot of work and there's a little money involved so insert obligatory Patreon promotion here. You can help support the show and get it off the ground faster by supporting me over on Patreon. And if that's not enough to sign up, how about this? Chiller Chronicles will still be posted as a blog series exclusively on my Patreon page! When the podcast episode airs, the text version will be posted to Patreon as well. But I have one more surprise. I will also be adapting Chiller Chronicles as a book series. And, supporters on Patreon will get that book free. Each new book which comes out in the series will be free to Patrons of all tiers! This is my biggest project yet and I am very excited for it. I would be thankful for any help you can give.
Look forward to the Chiller Chronicles Podcast, coming soon! I'll give you more details as I get them. Until then, keep wandering. Just not alone.
Over the weekend, I got a bit of sad news. Due to Hurricane Dorian, the Space Coast Comic Con was cancelled. As you can imagine, I was pretty bummed about this. I've been looking forward to this con all year. I was excited to use what I learned a couple of weeks ago.
The good news is, the convention will be giving vendors a table at their next convention in 2020 so I at least have time to make any changes to my strategy and set up. Plus, if you think about it, it might be for the best. Even if Dorian doesn't hit the state, a lot of people may have cancelled their plans to travel to the convention because of the storm. Which means, there may have been a lot less people. So, it might work out for the best.
I'm not going to waste this trip, however. Since I already booked a hotel, which can't be cancelled now, I'm going to take my family on a vacation. My son will be excited to check out the Kennedy Space Center. Now, we just have to hope the hurricane doesn't decide to ruin more of our plans!
The 5th annual on point book fair is still happening on September 21st at 10AM. That one is in Tampa so if you're local, come check it out. It will be a Westshore Plaza in Tampa. Hope to see you there!
