My Return to the TVCU Podcast!!!

21 Nov

Don’t get too excited.  It’s just for the Christmas episode that will be airing on the Tuesday before Christmas.

The TVCU Crew is celebrating.  And with good reason.

The website, http://www.televisioncrossoveruniverse.com, will be celebrating its sixth anniversary on January 10.  And we just recently hit a million views of the website, a half a million of which we received just last month!

And our podcast is celebrating its first anniversary on December 12.

And finally, the first TVCU spin-off book, the Horror Crossover Encyclopedia, is being rereleased by 18thWall in a 2nd edition soon, two years after its original release.

I’m very proud to be celebrating with the TVCU Crew, who helped turn my hobby into a brand franchise.

And to think, with all this going on, I was about to walk away and retire from the world of crossovers.

Whatever happened to the second edition of the Horror Crossover Encyclopedia?

14 Nov

 

I’ve announced it.  And the publishers announced it.  It was supposed to come out in late September, or early October, or mid October.

The release isn’t up to me, but as far as I know, it’s still happening.

The second edition will feature a matte cover by a new graphic designer, a new retrospective introduction from me, a new foreword from Trick or Treat Radio’s Dynamo Marz, and selected revised entries.

18thWall is known in its short span for putting out great stories from amazing authors who win awards.  It’s impressive how much quality such a young publisher puts out.  However, as a young company, they aren’t so good with making and meeting deadlines.

But the wait is usually worth it.  So I ask, please be patient.  And also, please stop asking me when it will be out.  I don’t know.  But you know I market the poop out of my work, so trust me that when I know, you all will know.

If you are really impatient, I suggest contacting the publisher directly and ask for more details on its release.

Transitions

2 Nov

It’s been a while, and I thought I’d update my followers on what’s been going on.

Working at Subway so I can pay the bills, and I hate to admit, but I’m starting to enjoy it there.

I’m also on a path to take on a pastoral role.  I’m not exactly sure where that path is going to end up, but I’m open to the journey.

As for the world of entertainment and geek culture…

The 2nd edition of the Horror Crossover Encyclopedia is coming out at some point.

I’m also still working on the Cartoon Crossover Encyclopedia and Television Crossover Universe:  Worlds and Mythology Volume II, but very infrequently.

However, I am more frequently posting new stuff on the TVCU website, and I’m in the process of cleaning up some of the older posts.

I’m also actively posting in my various Facebook groups that I moderate, and I’m still keeping up on the latest television and tracking the crossovers.

I lost the podcast, and the hope of doing the spin-off podcast.  My primary income comes right now from my disability, and a paperwork complication caused me to lose my primary income for two months.  Fortunately, my finances are back on track, but sadly I couldn’t keep up the fees for the show during that two month period and so Super Entertainment had to give up financing the show.  Fortunately, 18thWall Productions picked up the sponsorship so that show is continuing on with James Bojaciuk as host.

Sadly, my plans for the Random Fandom spin-off podcast with myself and Ivan Schablotski won’t happen.  We were in talks with the Grand Guignol Network and it was looking good, but since I wasn’t able to keep up payments on the first show, the negotiations for the second show fell apart.

So that’s what’s going on.

Website saved

26 Oct

Just in the nick of time, I received the funds I needed to renew RobertEWronskiJr.com for another year.

So I may have lost both my pre-existing podcast and the opportunity for the spin-off podcast, alas, due to the recent financial snag, but at least I got to keep the website that bears my name.

I’m going to lose my own name.

18 Oct

I’m about to lose the domain name, Robert E. Wronski, Jr.com.

That means, because I can’t pay to renew the website, someone could potentially steal the name away from me, and use my name for whatever they want.

I’m on disability, and I haven’t gotten paid in two months because of a paperwork error, and even though two weeks ago, the person at the office said it was all fixed, I still haven’t gotten paid.

I’m facing eviction.  My phone has been turned off.  I’ve lost my podcast because I couldn’t pay the studio rent and iTunes fees.  And now I’m going to lose the right to my own name.

I do believe the 2nd edition of the Horror Crossover Encyclopedia will be released in a week or two.

10 Oct

Even when I’m not writing, I still manage to put out a new book.  Well, a new version of an old book.

Royalties are a great motivator!

23 Sep

My second book, Television Crossover Universe:  Worlds and Mythology Volume I, yields royalty checks deposited into my account every month.  Sure, they are small checks, but the fact that they come every month means I keep selling the book.

Every time I get an e-mail notification of a royalty check, it reminds me that someone out there wants me to keep writing.

And keep writing I shall.
