On Friday, Matt Herring and I recorded and posted the final episode of the Secret Identity podcast. It was our 800th officially numbered episode, though we have closer to 1000 overall. We started Secret Identity in March of 2006, and for the better part of 12 years, have put out a new show (or two) just about every week. All told, we have roughly 2000 hours of podcasts featuring thousands of comics, movies, TV show and game reviews, as well as hundreds of interviews with creators.
To say that I am proud of what we've accomplished would be the understatement of the century. My life would not be what it is right now if not for that show. Some of my best friends are in my life because of that show. I am a writer today because of that show. The list goes on.
I'll have much more to say about the legacy of Secret Identity in the coming months (and years), but for right now, I just want to reflect on and appreciate what we've done. You can listen to the final episode of Secret Identity in the player below. And for all of those people who tuned in--whether it was one time or every week--THANK YOU.

Drive Thru Fiction is having some amazing sales to celebrate Halloween, and I'm a part of one. My first book Courting the King in Yellow is part of the Cthulhu Tales bundle, were you can get almost $30 of books for $7.95. That means you're getting Courting the King in Yellow for a measly thirty-five cents!
Not only that, but you also get some great anthology series as well, featuring stories inspired by H.P. Lovecraft.
Now is the perfect time to grab Courting the King in Yellow, as its sequel was just released last week! So when you go to grab the bundle, you can pick up Chasing the King in Yellow at Drive Thru as well, and you'll still have spent under $10! So go grab some Halloween reads and celebrate October with some spooky stories.

Back cover blurb:
Evil Doesn’t Die—It Adapts
Three years ago, Samantha Cane and Frank Carter’s lives were destroyed as their city became the staging ground for a cult dedicated to the King in Yellow. When the cult enacted a plan to throw the city into chaos, Frank and Sam stopped them with the help of a group called the Parted Veil. But the victory came at a high cost, and it was short-lived. The followers of the King in Yellow are persistent, and their operation in Springfield was just one of many.
Now members of the Parted Veil themselves, Sam and Frank continue to follow the cult's activities and thwart them whenever they can. A rash of disappearances has led them to a small town in Tennessee, where an old mining operation may be the cult’s latest workshop of horrors.
Each step they take toward discovering the scope of the cult’s plan costs them another piece of themselves. And some questions are better left unanswered.
