Who I am and what I do…

Hello, there. I’m Steve and I’m happy to have your attention.

In a nutshell, I am a freelance writer, copy writer, editor, copy editor, musician, and undead bacon lord. I also really love tacos and serial commas. For examples of my work, please go here. Seriously, if you need words and you have money, I’m your guy.

No, seriously seriously. I am available for hire. I am very good with these word-things. All joking and funny talk aside, I will make your words shine to the point of blinding people into buying your products, visiting your website, and so on. I am an easygoing person who is always willing to discuss reasonable rates. Hey, if you’re trying to make a living, why muck it up with stilted, awkward adcopy? You don’t want that. No one wants that.

I am also available for all other kinds of word-work.  I can do just about anything– and quickly. Or slowly, if that’s what you prefer. I excel at content creation, which means I can totally make that website of yours sing, or take your idea and put the words that you want to see, and want others to see, so that your idea might better flourish. I’ll take whatever rough things you have and polish the hell out of them until they shine. Or maybe you need content from the ground up? You’re in luck: I am a creation factory.

In short, I write good words. Hire me. More on my rates and what I can do here.

(Please note that necromancy costs extra.)

Drop me a line and I’ll make you never regret it: steve@baconlich.com

If you’re curious about working with me in a music/audio capacity, please go here.


Where to find me in the internet wilds:

Seasmoke PR – These marvelous travel PR folks pay me to summon words for them! I do copy writing, copy editing, copy, copy, and copy. I am really, really good with copy, you see. And I love it. If you throw some ducats my way, I will write copy for you, too. Probably.

Black Goat Games – This is my role-playing game imprint. Black Goat Games is  be “a wellspring of forlorn hope and grim adventure”. I churn things out there as often as possible. In fact, here’s my Publisher Page at RPGNOW.

Black Goat TV – These are my videos where I talk about gaming and other things. You’ll notice my mad video skillz improve with each installment.

Mr. Zoth and the Werespiders – This is music I create and/or arrange. The tracks are built with a bit of weirdness in mind, and are meant to be interesting, dark tracks for tabletop gaming or maybe even other writers out there. I also do a project called Klubovader, which is similar to the main project, but is meant to be sillier and more “industrial”. Club music for elevators, really.

Nerd Titan – A geek site full of nerdery from all across the nerd spectrum. I not only write for this site, but I’m also the Editor in Chief. Go on, go check it out.

Facebook – The first stop for most on the Steve Express.

Twitter – I’m on Twitter. Are you on Twitter, too? No, you may not have my tacos.

Tumblr – The Phylactery of Awesome, yo. Figured it had a nice ring for this here Bacon Lich.

Depressalin: Saving Throes from a Charming ThirtyNothing – It was supposed to be me posting my memoirs-type book in progress, but it morphed into more of a blog creature in its own right. Dark, cynical, and vulgar… Depressalin is not for the faint of heart or those lacking a sense of gallows humour. Oh, and I plop in the occasional short story in there. Sometimes I complain or passively-aggressively snark news items and quasi-celebs. It’s always some sort of treat-show, that’s for sure.

My LinkedIn Profile – Get to know me a bit professionally, why don’t you?

The MouthFist Podcast – Where Ryan Speck and I (and maybe even special guests) discuss various things, like movies, games and comics. Not suitable for children or most adults. Maybe angry lemurs, though.

Saunders Talks Disease – Somehow, for some reason, Comics Bulletin asked me to do a column for them. The poor, poor bastards. It’s a rambling type of thing that covers the comics industry, I guess. Or whatever strikes my fancy, really. Yes: Fancy. Update: Well, it’s more like a rare feature than a column now.

Diary of a Grognerd – My nerdy blog of nerdy things. I blab about videogames, roleplaying games, comic books, miniatures and more. Bring a poncho– the nerding is heavy. Update: I rarely post to this anymore. Too many blogs.

FTL – An exciting comics anthology hailing from the UK and published by Orang Utan Comics and Markosia. Quick fun fact: I came up with the name “FTL” for FTL and Orang Utan mastermind, Ian Sharman. Anyhow, you can read comics I scribed, such as The Secret Cross, Sorgon, and Salvus (with Josh Wagner) in issues #2, #3, and #4.

Orcusville – A webcomic involving gamer/comic nerd demons and gods. It’s pretty much over now… but it’s there for posterity.

MediaGauntlet – A fantastic site ran by my good friend, novelist Ryan Speck. He has some great movies reviews, and sometimes I pop in to contribute something… or just do a little dance.

You can always go ahead and email me the old fashioned way:



Never be afraid to ask me questions. I have nothing to hide. Except maybe bodies, but I might just make a party out of it and ask you to help.

If you are feeling especially generous, please consider dropping me a donation. Writing is hard work with little reward, and if you like what I do, I am able to do more if I’m able to buy more tacos. Tacos make the voices stop, but only for a little while…
