SIGN UP TODAY to receive the VERY LAST EPISODE of the Bucciano/Conlon Project!

Bram Stoker Award-winning author Christopher Conlon and I decided that 2018 would be the last year of the Project. We have one last episode ready that will be sent to you FREE when you fill out the form below. This is one of Chris's darkly humorous stories, and it's based on a painting of mine that's not humorous at all. Imagine my surprise!

I like this one so much, I decided I'd save it for last.

SIGN UP NOW for a FREE .pdf which includes the story and a photo of the painting that inspired it! When you sign up, you'll also receive occasional emails about my latest paintings, behind-the-scenes studio visits, and other interesting art-related stuff. I promise I'll never use the word "newsletter" (who wants those?), nor will I email you 17 times a day. I'll only do it when there's something worth writing about - maybe once a month.
