ba-Ba-ba Dook Dook Dook!

  I’ve seen this movie advertised in various streaming channels, and was always sort of interested, but always found something that interested me more. I’m not sure what I expected from the blurb: “A single mother is plagued by the violent death of her husband and battles with her son’s fear […]

NSA?

Sometimes, when I have an idea or decide I need to change something in a manuscript, instead of putting a note into One Note (that I will have to remember to read later), I send myself a scheduled text. I really hope the NSA is not reading my texts… It’s bad […]

ManyBooks Author of the Day

I’m flattered to have been interviewed as the featured author of the day by ManyBooks.net, an aggregation site for ebook deals. You can see the interview here: http://manybooks.net/featured-authors/erik-henry-vick-plunging-readers-face-first-into-evil. It was a lot of fun, and I did get a bit silly toward the end, but what the hay.

How long have you been planning this?!?

Sometimes my stories sneak up on me and do something I don’t expect. In the novel I’m currently writing, the story just killed one of the characters. Mr. Story did it without a fuss–like it had been planned for some time. Poof. Enjoy your gruesome death, Mr. Character. Me? I’m […]

Proof it to me!

  Lookitwhatshoweduptoday! ™ Even though I can no longer read physical books (a gift from my Personal Monster ™), it is somehow more gratifying to get physical proofs delivered that have my name on the cover. If feels good to finally have this thing in my hands, to feel the […]

Errant Gods Release Date

What’s a better date to release a horror/dark fantasy novel than any other day of the year?  Yep. Halloween! Errant Gods goes on sale 10/31/17 at 12:01 am. If you’d like to get a preview, the first four chapters are included in my horror anthology, Devils: A Collection of Devilish Short […]

Errant Gods Cover Reveal

That is the ebook cover, of course. It’s a far cry from where I started, but I like it a lot. The paperback cover is below: Click on either image to see it a little bigger. I’m not sure I’m done with the paperback cover. I never like the back […]

Meg Ellison’s Road to Nowhere series

I was lucky to be introduced to Meg Elison’s work (specifically The Book of the Unnamed Midwife) last month. It was quirky, imaginative, and, in my opinion, novel (haha! Get it?). The book tells the post-apocalyptic tale of an unnamed, bisexual woman–a nurse–who wakes up alone in a hospital, after having survived […]

The IT Movie

A couple of weeks ago, I went to see the new IT movie in celebration of getting Errant Gods successfully uploaded for publication. I promised “more later” to my Facebook fan page, and today, in celebration of finishing my final final-proof (until there’s another one), I figured I’d write a […]

HWA Membership!

Devils (my horror debut) was released on 6/30/17, and today, 9/22/17, I qualified for full membership (Active) in the Horror Writers Association. I can’t believe it happened this fast, but hey, I’ll take it! If you’re one of my readers, thank you! You can pick up a copy of Devils on […]

Production Pipeline for Fiction

I’ve been spending all my creative time proofing Errant Gods for what feels like the last eon or so. Because I am using Microsoft Word, in its infinite glory, I am now borderline psychotic. This has led me to think about other things in other, special ways…and I’ve come up […]

RA Sucks

The title is a no-brainer. It’s a gimmee. Michael J. Fox had this to say about his Parkinson’s: “It’s a disease that keeps on taking.” This weekend, I was reminded of this by my Personal Monster(tm). I used to be a huge gearhead. I had this truck… twin turbo, 408c.i., […]
