Sadly, the next stop is not Willoughby! Editing for the third Howard Lovecraft book is nearly completed. We tie it up neatly, folks, and you will not be disappointed!
Yes friends, it’s a new year with a new look, new laptop, whole new direction. Stay tuned for more!
Great news in our inbox this morning! David Barnett of the Guardian UK gives Howard Lovecraft and the Undersea Kingdom a glowing review! And we’ve been alerted that there may be a Howard Lovecraft sighting in The Independent this weekend, so we’ll certainly keep our eyes peeled.
In the meantime, please be sure to pre-order your copies and thanks again for your support!
The year is quickly winding down, and 2011 will soon be gone! We are moving into our busy social time, so you will probably not hear from us until well into the new year. This is usually the time when people start reflecting on their lives – where they are, where they have been, and where they want to go. For us, it has been an incredible year – full of new projects, traveling, and family bonding. You know how New Year’s Eve goes: out with the old and in with the new. We are looking forward to 2012 and all it has to bring, including several exciting new projects!
We wish you a safe, blessed, and Merry Christmas!

Don’t forget: if you still want to order signed copies of Howard Lovecraft and the Frozen Kingdom, drop us an email (howardlovecraft(dot)comic(at)gmail.com). They have gone quickly, and we only have a few books left.
The Lovecraft Anthology
SelfMade Hero has announced the March release of The Lovecraft Anthology: Volume II, which features an H.P. Lovecraft adaptation by Dwight and sensational artist Paul Peart-Smith. Check out this amazing cover by our dear friend Francesco Francavilla, and click on the image to find out more about the book.

Dwight and Rebecca
PS – You can certainly tell which parts Dwight added! Hahaha!
A salute to all the men and women who have served, and continue to serve our wonderful country. Thank you for your service and sacrifice.
God bless you!
P.S. GO ARMY!
This was me right after Dwight told me the deadline for his first YA novel. But things are coming along very well, and we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. It has been a blast seeing this story evolve, and I can’t wait for everyone to read it!
So if you hear crickets when you open our blog, please don’t be discouraged. We are working on something special and priorities have shifted a bit due to the schedule.
It will be well worth the wait; I can promise you that!
Rebecca & Dwight
What? Do you think we write for money? Haha! You silly things.
Yes, we are furiously writing, writing, and more writing–hence the crickets on this blog the past week. But we are closing in on our Lovecraft/Pirate story contest, so a winner will be announced soon. A HUGE thanks to everyone who sent in a story. We had a wonderful time reading them. You guys are extremely talented!
I have the biggest smile on my face because I just learned that Dwight’s friend, Brian Harnois, has a new show! The teaser image looks fabulous, and for those who miss watching Brian on television, I for one can’t wait to see him doing what he does best!
The new “docuseries” is slated to premiere Thursday, September 8th, on Rhode Island PBS. PBS?! Of course! What better network to showcase all of Rhode Island’s historic haunts?
Dwight has always had wonderful things to say about Brian, and even though I have not met him personally, I feel I know him through the many stories I’ve heard. He really made an impression on our eldest son, too! Almost three years later, Clayton still talks about hanging out with his dad and Brian at Adventure Con.
So congratulations, Brian, and we hope Haunted RI is a ridiculously successful show! Go get ‘em!
Me and Brian Harnois
I first contacted Brian through Myspace–yes, seriously–back in 2007 when he appeared on GH, and, surprisingly, my simple note resulted in a torrent of correspondence and countless hours of conversation on the telephone (many times during shooting breaks) over the last 4 years. Yes, Brian and I hit it off from the jump, and we quickly became close friends and confidantes.
The thing I liked most about Brian was that he was real. And he still is. The same passionate, caring Brian you see on television is the same “dude” you would meet at the local supermarket, street crossing, movie theater, convention–wherever. Brian is a “what you see is what you get” kind of guy… like me.
I could go on and on about my “brother,” filling this blog post with humorous anecdotes or “dishing the dirt”… but I won’t. What has been spoken in confidence will always remain between us.
No, the purpose of this note is to wish my good friend Brian “Wheezy” Harnois the best of luck in his newest endeavor: Haunted RI.
Brian: You are a good man and friend, and I wish you much success in everything you do. I love ya, brother. -D
I know I tend to brag on my talented husband somewhat, and I will continue to do this, but he truly is prolific. He is always writing something or thinking about writing something. And new ideas even come to him when he’s in the middle of writing something entirely different!
Clue: This story has nothing whatsoever to do with Sweeney Todd. I just like the illustration.
When Dwight showed me this twisted little tale, I immediately thought of Amy and her amazing group of Lovecraft fans. The thing about Howard Lovecraft: you either like him or you don’t. Despite the massive amount of stories he produced in his career, he is still not respected as much as he should be for his contributions to literature, and I think that is a shame.
But that is my two cents worth. Enjoy the story!
