An introduction!

Hey guys,

So, as  Jake mentioned in the previous post, there have been a few changes here at the Family of Dog HQ of late. We're all sorry to see Stacy go, but Alys and Saran are superb additions to the family and I know we're all going to have a hell of a lot of fun together!

And on that note, I'm really excited to announce that over the coming month, we're going to be welcoming guest contributors to the blog. Are you someone who is involved in the world of horror? Are you an author, an artist, a publisher, or do you maybe run a website about all things horror? If so, we'd love to hear from you.

If you'd be interested in guesting on the blog, then please email me with what it is that you do and your Twitter name and website (if applicable). Let me know what you'd like to talk about - as you can probably guess, here at the Family of Dog we go further than anyone else. Nothing is too gruesome, nothing is too extreme - I love to be scared, so give it your best shot!

Feel free to email me or Jake at any time or catch up with us on Twitter or at my blog sites - we'd love to hear from you, and don't forget to keep your eyes peeled here for all the amazing guests we've got coming up.

And most importantly - the release of the Pitchfork Diaries is just two months away! Tell everyone you know, and prepare yourself for the ride of your life...

The Family

Hey Crue!
Well for those who are paying close attention, And I know you are.
So as it happens to be in the life of Jake Bannerman right as we were about to launch a massive press explosion for The Pitchfork Diaries we loose a family member in The Goat Franchise.
We are saddened to announce the departure of Stacy Diablo from the family due to the expansion of her own business in Dublin she just did not have the time to devote and we parted the best of friends and ALL of us here at The Goat Franchise wish her the best in ALL of her future endeavors She launched The FOD further than we ever could have hoped for!
 In light of this you might have seen some changes to the Family page here on the blog and let me tell you something right now we have 3 count them 3 authors who are devoting their very valuable time to the Family of Dog/Goat Franchise and they are HELLBENT on success and they share the tenacity I have for this.
Welcome Kate who has been with us for quite sometime now and handles all of my final edits as well as The Pitchfork and Harvest blogs. If you want to add your banner to the blog you can contact her Kate@familyofdog.com, Kate can also take your request if you want to be a Beta/Test reader for any of The Family of Dog releases.BTW Kate is monster sexy and is very protective of me and I love her so easy big boys lol.
Also welcome Bailey (Ghost Writer/Editor) who has been with me since day one of this project and has been a close friend for 10 years and I give her massive credit for the beauty of the writing along with Kate they edit my writing which is a terrifying butchery of the English language when they receive it. Bailey took The Harvest from Coal to diamond and is my amazing friend. Now Bailey is not to involved in day to day operations but would be more than happy to talk to you if you wish to contact her you can reach her at bailey@familyofdog.com and if you want an interview with her contact Alys!
Alys has just joined the group and is what I term my Press bunny, She handles ALL interviews from any website newspaper radio station podcast etc as well as being an accomplished author she brings me down to earth when i get to insane. If you want to talk to ME or Bailey you have to contact Alys and she will get you hooked up and she is hot just so you know. And if Kate does not kill you first Alys will take you down she is my protector.
And Saran now this is a BIG one Saran handles ALL things book tour related! If you want to schedule a guest blog or if you need a promo kit Press release regarding releases or info on the inner workings of The Goat Franchise she is the gal to get ahold of, This can be a little confusing she is the one who gets me to write on your blog and she will provide you with sell sheets and info on where you can purchase the books and how to add us to your book tour. She will not be handling INTERVIEWS all INTERVIEW inquiries need to go to ALYS!
We know this is unconventional and NOT how most publishing groups work however there is a reason for what we do so bare with us and our unconventional ways, We kinda do what WE like to do and do not concern ourselves with what others do :)
We have some crazy s**t about to go down with the new press blitz you are going to be seeing us all over the place as we prepare for the launch of The Pitchfork Diaries, I can say as of now I have 14 guest blogs and interviews lined up and that's just the beginning!
 So welcome thew beautiful Gals of The Goat Franchise get ready to see us all over the place!

Hey Crue!
So I was thinking oh I don't know over the last few months about why it is so quiet here on the blog and I came across a reason I had not thought of before and I think I may be onto something here.
As usual I think I am my own worst enemy because I have used this blog to let out frustration
And I'm afraid maybe I have givin myself a reputation.
So I'm hoping the few of you who actually "know" me will help me :)
And let me explain a few things
I am overly friendly and to trusting Stacy hates this!
I am very laid back VERY
I am not violent that takes energy I might have to sweat or something,
I am and I won't break my arm patting myself on the back here but I consider myself funny
I love to entertain which is odd because I love being alone but give me an audience and I will win them over!
I also have a serious passion for my work I do not ever plan to be the guy who does nothing I have 3 partners in this and it is my goal for them to say Jake is a freak show he works harder than anyone!
That is what gets me in trouble because I am so fired up and I want everyone else to be excited and my excitement turns to frustration and I look like a big assmunch
So can we start again? I would love for you to post on the blog you can even call me an assmunch :)

Behind Scarecrow

I have been asked to give a behind the scene look at Scarecrow.
"The Scarecrows Lament" has outsold All of my short stories by a longshot and I've been told it is the best representation of my writing,that's cool!
So a little background info, I always start with a title always!
Scarecrow reminded me of a song title Opeth might use loved the sound of it
Truth is I just start with no idea what is going to come out the first idea was to have a mentally retarded girl kill people to make scarecrows out of them it just was not enough so I added what those who have read it to know as daddy's little secret.
As any of the short stories this may become a full length novel at some point.
I am really glad you all like it,
Sex Satan Sacrafice!

Let me say I'm sorry and teach you how to say FUCK YOU

Hey Crue,
I knew at some point I would have to write this I just did not know it would be so early,so here we go.
There seems to be some confusion on why I keep my identity a secret and why there are no pictures of me. Let me tell you why. I am hated and you will be hated if you show any support
This is a fact! I keep the emails non public but I knew the hate would start coming out publicly and it has just jump on over to Get Fanged's Facebook and you will see.
Now this does not bother me at ALL,however I do not EVER want any of you to take shit for supporting me so I wanted to teach you a phrase I like to use when people think they have the right to criticize FICTION let's all say it together now
Go fuck yourself!
Until you have a valid criticism you do not matter and if it is valid thank you and it will be addressed ( notice I say nothing to the 2 on Facebook one of whom follows me on twitter lolol ) so please be careful people want me dead for real and get this, the book is not even out yet!
Blessed are the Sick!
