A thrill as usual to see my SIN STREET SLEAZE blog listed amongst the nominations for the 2018 Rondo Awards in the "Best Website or Blog" category. My fourth consecutive nomination in that category. Congrats to all the other nominees in all categories, many of whom I am friends with on FB and who do work that I greatly admire.
Aside from being nominated for a Rondo Award in the "Best Website or Blog" category this year, it's also a thrill to see a book in which I was involved in also gaining a nomination for "Book of the Year" . Edited by Amanda Reyes and published by Headpress, ARE YOU IN THE HOUSE ALONE? is a compendium of articles and reviews devoted to the classic 1964-1999 era of American telemovies, with emphasis on the more esoteric and genre-related titles. Some of the great TV movies I wrote about for this book include GARGOYLES, BORN INNOCENT, Ron Howard's COTTON CANDY, SNOWBEAST, a bunch of 1990s Stephen King adaptations and more. Was a great night launching the book at Monster Fest with Amanda and fellow contributors Lee Gambin and Kier-La Janisse, along with special guest Marneen Lynne, who talked about her own work on TV movies and played a great highlight reel that she played for the audience.
Big congrats and best luck to Amanda for the nomination, and great to see the book amongst some many other worthy nominees.
