Archive for September, 2011
Tomorrow it is officially October and that means one thing — Halloween is fast approaching. And for me, the season of the witch (no relation to the Halloween 3 film) means many things, one of which is a good excuse (not that I need any) to watch horror films.
I wanted to do something a little different today. Instead of reviewing a single book, or a collection of books, I want to review the heart and soul behind a body of work. That writer is Heather Marie Adkins. I first discovered Heather about six months ago and very quickly devoured her books.
Do people even call the telly the “boob tube” still? Wait, are Americans allowed to call it the “telly” (or has that been copy-written by the British? Anyway, I thought I would slap down my two shekels worth of opinion on what I’ve seen so far with the new seasons and new shows. I’ll give you fair warning — I don’t watch reality TV, so if that’s your fare, read elsewhere.
Today I have the pleasure of Jack’ing sci-fi/fantasy author C. M. Barrett. Her views and ideas are incredible. Read on!
Since I Zombie I was pushed to “free” status on Amazon.com, it has been slowly climbing up the rank and file of the horror genre. Currently it stands at #3 in Occult and #10 in Horror. This is big and all part of my master plan (insert ominous Bwahaha here).
Today I am proud as clown punch to have the Queen of Parody, PJ Jones Get Jack’d. So sit back, grab a pint of laughter, and enjoy!
I am proud to finally offer cover design as a service for fellow indie authors. And instead of making you pay an arm and a leg to get a professional-looking cover, my rates will be within reason. Find out all the details on my new design site, Adorkable Designs.
This time around, Get Jack’d features paranormal romance writer Melissa Smith! Let’s all give a ghostly, angelic welcome!
Recently I was interviewed by Athanasios Galanis for his site Mad Gods. I wanted to share that interview with my fans.
I don’t pimp Zombie Radio nearly enough, but what I have coming up needs a pimpin’.
The Indie Eclective: What is it, who are they, and why can they spell neither “eclectic” nor “collective” correctly? The Indie Eclective is an ensemble of authors operating under the assumption that Readers like Good Books. The Halloween Collection showcases spooky reads from nine very different authors.
I get asked this a lot — why zombies? When sparkly hunky vampires are all the rage, why stick with the shambling, gooey mess known as zombies? That answer is not always a simple one, but it’s certainly a fun one to tackle. That’s just what I want to do right here, right now.
Another #samplesunday is upon us and, once again, I wanted to share a sample from the first book in the “I Zombie” trilogy, I Zombie I (purchase for $0.99 cents on Amazon and Barnes & Noble or get it FREE on Smashwords). This time around I thought I’d share the chapter that brought the name of the book about (which then inspired the names of the final two books: My Zombie My and Die Zombie Die.)
As I am currently going through the edits for My Zombie My and working on the first re-writes of Die Zombie Die, my new series is boiling in the back of my skull…begging to be heard…itching to force my pen to paper to begin a newer, darker journey. That new journey now has a name and even a mock cover for the first in the series. Come into the landscape of my nightmare and let me tell you about what is to come in the new world order.
No, zombies are not roaming free in the streets — yet. Actually, you might want to check before blindly believing that statement. Back to the point…In order to celebrate Zombtember (yeah, I kinda made that up) and the release of the second book in the I Zombie series, My Zombie My, I am officially making I Zombie I free for the month of September, er, I mean Zombtember!
