Mental Shrillness: Todd Russell Blog Tour

I’m excited to announce that Todd Russell will be joining us at 21st Century Author for a stop on his blog tour!

Be sure to visit 21st Century Author on Friday, May 6th, to hear Todd talk about his writing process. Follow Todd along his blog tour stops throughout the month for a chance to win a free copy of his book, Mental Shrillness! Todd is also holding a blog comment contest that will award twelve ‘best comment’ winners with free flash fiction by Todd himself.

A little about Todd:

Todd Russell started writing at eight years old and has honed his bizarre style along the likes of Rod Serling, Robert R. McCammon, and Stephen King. Mental Shrillness, a collection of six horror twist ending short stories, is his first book.

What are some things that scare Russell? Broken shards of glass, rock music after the 80s, cliches, Sunday night, predictability, stalemate chess matches, who really shot JFK, the iceberg that downed the Titanic, asteroids hitting earth, the insatiable beast known as ET Cetera.

Get in touch with Todd on his Facebook Author Page.

Win A Copy Of Mental Shrillness:

To win your free copy of Todd’s book, visit all his blog tour stops and pick up all of Todd’s Mental Shrillness Blog Tour Factoids! At the end of the tour, score at least 75% on Todd’s factoid quiz to win your own copy of Todd’s six horror stories! The quiz will be on Todd’s website,!

  1. Ania – we need to start something in the comments here. Perhaps spill some blood, plant some seeds maybe drag a sharpened, gleaming axe across the page.

    I think that Twitter bird is ripe for the reaping …

      • Um, er, I should probably mention that you got the contest facts a bit mixed up in your post? LOL. It’s my fault, not yours, because the email I sent out had 80% and then it was 75% a few lines down later. The mathematics of the quiz — let’s blame it on that, yeah!
