Spider Notes: Never Been to Mars Sequel

authormkToday is my birthday, Happy Birthday to me!!!

For my birthday  I want a massive party with massive amounts of booze and celebs but I’ll probably end up celebrating it like I normally do (See Left). I rarely get what I want.  That being said I do get the chance to announce the release date for my next book.

On DECEMBER 1st, 2015 my next book, the follow-up to my award winning debut Never Been to Marswill be released.  It will be titled To Money and a TV!

Here is the back cover synopsis:

My name is Benedict Thompson and I am a superhero. With a single touch I can read an item’s past. I can tell you who used that pen before you, I can describe how that shoe was made and I can describe everything that has been done on that motel room bed.

Not every superpower is a blessing.

Benedict has never been the same since coming home from Iraq but he’s getting better. He’s rejoined the lives of his family, he’s keeping busy with work, he has a kinda-sorta-but-not-really girlfriend and his Netflix queue has just expanded. Everything’s coming up Benedict.

When an evil movie quoting sniper starts taunting him over the phone, Benedict gets worried.

When the sniper starts killing people and leaving items from Benedict’s past at the crime scene, Benedict gets scared.

When his kinda-sorta-but-not-really girlfriend wants to have the relationship talk, Benedict get terrified.

Benedict already misses his TV.

Web Con: Larry Gent Appearing at Nerdcon 2015

Web-Con: Twas The Night Before Hal-Con

Twas the Night Before Hal-Con
By Larry Gent

A poem about the last minute Con Woes.

Twas the night before Hal-Con, and all thro the city

Every creature was stirring, especially the committee

The costumes were hung in the closest with care,

In hopes that tomorrow would soon be there;

The cosplayers were nestled all snug in their beds,

While visions of excitement danc’d in their heads,

When from the other room there arose such a clatter,

I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.

The helmet had fallen and crashed to the floor

Taking damage only seen from a great war.

The stitching had failed and my cloak was undone

And I stood there staring with a look of pure stun.

This cosplay had been months of hard work,

It had driven me mad and sent me berserk.

I could not sew when all this had began,

And none of this project had proceeded as planned.

It started as clothe and evolved into foam.

I embroidered, and painted and even used chrome.

The cost had tripled from my initial budget

And my family had questioned my better judgement.

But I pressed onwards until it was done

Because deep down I found it all fun.

I took a deep breath, and reached for my kit,

I glanced at my suit and figured a refit.

I stared at my costume as the moon glowed bright

Happy, Hal-Con to all but I ain’t sleeping tonight.

Tuesday Test: Convention Wordsearch

Welcome back to Tuesday Test.  Hal-Con is fast approaching (OH GOD!! I’M NOT READY) and that means I have a lame excuse for a theme this week.  So now we do a Tuesday Test based on conventions.

I love conventions.  I love the people, I love the hustle, I dislike the bustle (odd – I know), but I love everything else about it.  I love the panels, the dances and the costumes.  So here we are.  Hal-Con is approaching and I can’t wait to see what happens next.  This week’s test is all about the various con across the globes.   Continue reading

Spider Notes: Introducing the Flow

9781926903187_p0_v1_s600There is always a feeling that flows through me before I start a new project. It’s part wonder and excitement, it’s part me fleeing from the daunting task that stood before me and its part relief know that I’ll finally get to introduce someone, someone I know deeply and very personally, to this world.

I’d like to introduce — oh wait, it’s not that easy.

Each author has its own approach, apparently we are each very different people, and so with that in mind I can only speak to my own approach.  So keep that in mind as you read forth.

Geekdown: Top Ten Pokémon I Want in Pokkén Tournament

So news was released that a new Pokémon game was being announced. Today we got the announcement. Pokken Tournament: a tournament fighter, like Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat, staring the Pokémon from — well —– Pokémon. The game is also being created by the Tekken Team.

Now I would assume that the roster will be limited to mostly humanoid Pokémon and probably mostly fighting-type or fighting themed Pokémon. But who will get in? The trailer shows only Lucario and Machamp but who else would you want in it?

Here are my ten. Continue reading
