Black Christmas show will include a reading of Krampus

You can only imagine my surprise when I received the following email from Jessi Miano, aka Lady Hourglass...

The reason i am writing to you is because the act i am doing involves a visit from Krampus. In the start of the act, i will be reading a story of krampus out loud, and am then visited by Krampus while i'm sleeping. [...] It is a Hula Hooping act with an LED hoop, linked in with my friend eating fire while dressed as Krampus. I am not the best at writing stories, so I have been searching the internet for the prefect story of Krampus to read. I came across your story, read the few stanzas that are on the preview, and LOVE it
So Jessi's Black Christmas show on Saturday 17th December will include a reading of Krampus: A Christmas Tale. If anyone out there is going to be in the Brooklyn area this Saturday, follow the links below and get along to the show!

Krampus - interviews and audio versions

Be sure to download the latest episode of the Paul the Book Guy podcast. Paul was nice enough to interview me about Krampus and my other books. You can follow him on Twitter too.

Paul is also producing an audio version of Krampus: A Christmas Tale with music by Geoff Smith, which will be part of his next episode. RynoTheBearded is also going to be doing an audio version on one of his shows on the No Agenda news Network too.

Remember, you can also keep up to date with Ryno's episodes of the One Day in Gitmo Nation audiobook at

New children's book: Krampus: A Christmas Tale

Just in time for Christmas, I am very pleased to announce the publication of a new book. Krampus: A Christmas Tale is a rhyme I wrote for my daughter but the real reason to pick up a copy is the incredible artwork by an artist called Phil Ives. When I gave him my story, his first draft of Krampus hit the character dead on. I can't sing this guy's praises enough.

The story itself is based on a "real" character from Christmas mythology who accompanies Father Christmas and gives horrible presents to bad children. I thought it was the perfect character to let me write a story that would entertain and scare children in just the right amounts. Verse 1 is below, followed by the details of how you can pick up a copy in paperback or on your Kindle.

I'm going to tell you a Christmas tale,
With a man who gives books and toys,
But this one's a little different,
It's been known to scare some girls and boys
