Fire up those headphones. Crank up that car stereo. A new FREE episode of the Ace Tucker Space Trucker monthly "comic book for your ears" has dropped!

If audio fiction isn't your thing, fear not! I have a collection of short stories and a new full-length novel in the works. The collection will most likely be titled Tales From the TCB and the novel's working title is Ace Tucker Space Trucker II: The Wrath of Ace. Those titles may change. I'm still early in the process, but those are good placeholders for now.

All this stuff takes a loooong time to make and its a very solitary endeavor, so please let me know what you're liking, disliking, want more of, less of, etc. etc. The monthly comic book for your ears will continue for now while I work on the other stuff. So, please, please, please tell your friends to check it out. The more people we get on board, the easier it will be to pump out more jammy jams!

It's that time of year again! Springtime? Nope. Well, yes. But I'm talking about Comic Convention Season! When nerds come out of the woodwork to show off the hours spent all winter creating their Rick and Morty portal guns out of empty Windex bottles and duct tape.

This Saturday and Sunday I will be at Gem City Comic Con at the Dayton Convention Center in funny, sunny Dayton, Ohio. If you're nearby, you should come out!

Gem City is a great convention. Not just because I'm going to be there but because it is a great blend of comics, games, authors, filmmakers, podcasters, cosplayers, panelists, and more. It is small enough to be accessible (you can do the whole con in a day) and big enough to get totally lost in Nerdvana all weekend.

Speaking of panelists.
I'm doing a presentation on audio fiction!



Yup. In addition to me yelling at you as you walk by my booth in Artists Alley, the real attraction is an hour-long presentation at 1 PM THIS SATURDAY. "DIY Audio Fiction For Fun and (Who Knows, Maybe) Profit" will start with me exploring the wild and wacky world of audio fiction and end with a demo of how I make the stuff! Awwww yeah! Edu-ma-cation!

Come get your nerd on, support some amazing world-famous creators, and watch me ramble on about audio fiction.

Or don't. Whatever. Maybe you have better things to do this weekend. But you know where I'll be, so if you want to get some signed Ace Tucker stuff or yell at me for (spoiler)! Then, I'm your huckleberry.


Is it possible...that is was extraterrestrials?

Rejoice! There is a brand new episode of my insane audio fiction series out for your audio delight! Head on over to www.acetuckerspacetrucker.com/listen and feast your earholes on the majesty that is: EL CHUPACABRA - PART 2!




In this exciting conclusion, April and Hank meet up with Giorgio Sookyloose, host of the beloved television show, Old Timey Aliens. Despite Giorgio's lisp and poor choice in hairstyles, he agrees to help April and Hank find the vile and mysterious CHUPACABRA. Yet, what they find is beyond anything they can possibly imagine!

Stories And Music, Baby. That's What It's All About

Posted 28 Mar 2019

If you haven't heard the exciting conclusion of the special two-parter episode of Ace Tucker Space Trucker, what the hell are you waiting for? Take a listen, yo!

It's really good. I swear. But it might make more sense to listen to the first part first. I dunno. I'm not gonna tell you what to do. You do you.

The next new episode is in the works!

I can't nail down an exact date yet but it's in the works and will drop in March. And it's gonna be awesome.


Shiny Objects!

If you've been following this little newsletter for any amount of time you know that I jump around from project to project.


A lot.

A lot, a lot.

So, I think I'm going to start having a little section at the end of each email that lists out what projects are active, what's stalled, what I'm pondering, where I'm going to be, etc. Kind of a TL;DR to keep you up to date (and ME on task!).

So, here goes:


Active Projects *

On Hold Projects

  • Red Hot Rebellion album #3
  • Creativity podcast (replacement for Idiots With Instruments)
  • Y/A "superhero" novel
  • Vikings vs. Unicorns comic book
  • Vikings vs. Unicorns card game
  • Non-Fiction book: the only self-help book you'll ever need to read

Places I'll Be

  • March 17. 10 PM. Blind Bob's. Dayton Ohio. Red Hot Rebellion St. Patrick's Day ROCK SHOW
  • April 27, 28. 10 AM - 5 PM Gem City Comic Con. Dayton, Ohio. Exhibiting.

* Hold onto your hats. This section is going to have stuff flying on and off it like jelly beans on a trampoline.


Speaking of making awesome stuff.

I've always called the Ace Tucker audio fiction a "comic book for your ears." I really want it to be a real comic book too!
I think it'd be super rad to have each episode come with a corresponding comic book. So, if you know any GREAT comic artists that love truckers and Russian cyborg chimps, send 'em my way!
