I Almost Married a Man from Outer Space!

married-posterEarlier this week, I posted about two short films, based on stories in the book Robot/Girlfriend, that will be playing in film festivals. Today I decided to share another short film based on a Robot/Girlfriend story.

It was my pleasure to work with one of my favorite fellow writers, Giavanna Signorelli, a few months ago on two shorts. Gia and I first worked together nearly twenty years ago, when I was a youth drama leader at our church and she was just in high school. We had a blast on this shoot, and if things go the way we hope, this is just the first of many collaborations between the two of us.

Enjoy!

Two stories from Robot/Girlfriend headed to Film Festivals

robot-girlfriend-coverTwo short stories from the book Robot/Girlfriend are coming to a film festival near you!

Out of My Mind, a short directed by Cindy Maples, was honored by the Independent Horror Movie Awards. The film, based on the short story “Drip, Drip,” picked up a few awards including Best Scare, and if early reviews are any indication, this is only the beginning.

’Til Zombies Do Us Part, directed by yours truly, was accepted to my hometown film festival, Fright Night. Fright Night Film Fest has always been good to me, screening the Fluffy trilogy, the Clive the Zombie films, and The Telemarketer (starring Cindy Maples) in previous years, and I’m thrilled to be a part of one of the best horror shows in the Midwest once again.

Robot/Girlfriend is available in paperback and for Kindle on Amazon.com. Watch the trailer for the title story below, then head to Amazon to get your copy.

And please, get out and sponsor independent films like these in your area!

Goodreads Giveaway: Tales from the Dad Side!

Tales from the Dad SideI’m giving away FIVE copies of Tales from the Dad Side on Goodreads this week! This is a great collection of short stories for dads and kids to share at bed time or whenever the mood strikes. Read below to learn more about the book, then click here to enter!

Once upon a time, there was a dad who didn’t want to tell the same old bedtime stories. Sure, he loved fairy tales as much as the next guy, but why tell the same old stories about pigs and bears and princesses when you can make up your own?

TALES FROM THE DAD SIDE is what happens when a dad and his kids decide to make up their own stories. Screenwriter and author John Cosper and his kids created a collection of stories featuring pigs, wolves, dogs, cats, robots, chickens, parrots, monsters, dragons, aliens, cockroaches, princesses, honey badgers, Star Wars haters, and one really, really angry bird!

This newly revised edition includes ten brand new stories with more twisted fairy tales, aliens, and even a Christmas story. It also includes twelve pages of original art work by the kids who inspired the stories.

Always funny, sometimes meaningful, and always entertaining, TALES FROM THE DAD SIDE is a great escape from the ordinary bedtime – and the perfect launching pad to create your own stories and memories with your kids!
