In the Sunday May 31, 2015 Northwest Indiana Times, Mark Cusco Ailes and I were featured on page 3 & 5. The article was about the Ailes Brothers of Terror who both wrote horror fiction together. It was a great promo for our work. Unfortunately, in the paper, there was no photos of Mark or I, you know the Ailes Brothers of Terror which the article was about. Here's the photo featured in the newspaper.
You can see a blurry Ailes Brothers of Terror in the background, but as clear as day there stands Elvis Presley who has nothing to do with our article. The cutout was from another author's table at the Hammond Public Library Local Authors Book Fair. The sad part was: Elvis didn't even say "Thank you, thank you very much" for stealing our spotlight. When people in our area saw the article, those that still read the newspaper, they didn't have the "I know those two" experience which we had hoped. Hell, our parents didn't see the article in the paper. We had to tell them to look for it.
One of my co-workers, Linda, who I told to keep an eye out for the article since she gets the paper, told me I should be pissed by the photo used for the article. My brother and I know how any other guest must have felt who were booked for the Ed Sullivan show the Beatles made their first appearance on. Does anybody even know who else was on that broadcast? I sure don't.
It was a great article. Of course it was. It was about us.
Until Next Time,
The Ailes Brothers of Terror have left the building
