The Parafactor Interview Audio is Up!

The crew at The Parafactor radio show have posted the audio for my interview from Thursday night.

You can check it out here, or download the MP3 right from here.

I should mention the conversation is not work-safe. We had a lot of fun with this one.

Well Hello There, Parafactor Fans

I imagine a few of you are clicking on in after listening to my conversation with the guys at The Parafactor this evening. Welcome aboard! I had a great time, and I hope I didn’t sound like too much of a tool.

Thanks again to those of you hanging out in the chat room. I thought about trying to keep up with both the chat and the interview, but in the end I know I’m horrible at multitasking and would have ended up punching keys instead of talking horror flicks and Lovecraft. It was a fun time, and I’ll definitely have to link the show when they post it to their website.

I fully expected to be talking about the paranormal, but it was just a great conversation we could easily have had at bar instead of on the air. That’s what makes a great show as far as I’m concerned, and I recommend folks check them out. (And though I fall more into the skeptic category regarding the paranormal, I do enjoy that sort of thing. The geek in me never left, I just give him a swirley from time to time to keep him in line.)

So browse around, kick the tires, and maybe next time I’m on the show I’ll remember to mention there’s a small reference to Bigfoot in The Pack: Winter Kill.

An Interview & Assorted Updates

Things have been going well for The Pack: Winter Kill so far. Things have been quiet on the review front in the last few weeks after a strong start, but we’re still waiting to hear from a few publications we sent copies to. Judging by the almost daily fluctuations in our Amazon sales rank, sales have been at least steady if not building momentum. I’d like to thank those of you who have been spreading the word, too; please keep it up!

Meanwhile, I recently did an interview with Comics Bulletin, which you can read right here. The interview includes a few pages from Big Bad Wolves, the short comic that will be appearing at Evileye Books soon. It was a fun interview to do, and I think you’ll enjoy it. The BBW art is by Mike Henderson, by the way. Browse his blog, he’s got some good eye candy over there.

My next scheduled interview is an Internet radio interview with The Parafactor on May 20th. They’re a live, paranormal call-in show, and lately they’ve been interviewing horror writers like Brian Keene. I’m looking forward to this one, and keep an eye here for more details because you should be able to call in and ask questions.

We’re still looking for an artist for the first The Pack OGN, Chimaera, so I encourage artists to send portfolios or samples to Evileye Books. Yes, they pay. Promptly.

Prelim work on the follow-up to The Pack: Winter Kill is still moving along. I’m moving into Spring Break this week and I hope to have everything finalized by then and to complete the actual writing soon. We’re aiming for fall for this one, but that’s going to depend upon me turning in the manuscript in a timely manner.

Right now I’m punching in the edits for a short story called “The Malice Engine”. Wish me luck, as I will be submitting it to an anthology before I crash out tonight. This story has sold once and I’ve been paid for it, and though the book it was to appear in never saw print, maybe the story still has some magic left in it.

Busy busy busy. As always, I’m looking to up my game and I’m getting a few things lined up. More news soon.

The Black Glove: Interview & Review

The Black Glove just ran a couple of pieces about me and my work.

You can check out the interview here. TBG contributor Karen Newman asked me about everything from my karate studies to my writing to collaborating with guys like Brian Keene and J.F. Gonzalez. Wonder what happened to Muy Mal with John Urbancik, Weston Ochse, and myself? We cover that, too.

The review is here. Newman did the review as well, and the short version is she dug it. Check this out:

Oliveri doesn’t utilize the supernatural as a crutch, a testament to the strength of his writing. Oliveri has made a wonderful contribution to the werewolf mythos in The Pack: Winter Kill.

Rockin’. Ready to buy your own copy of the book? Make with the clicky. You can even get a Kindle version here.
