As everyone in the Jackverse knows, I am about to complete the first book in my Klockwerk Kabaret steampunk series. During the process of penning this tale, I fell in love with the genre. Not only does it offer the joy of creating something wholly unique, it allows the writer to dive into worlds unseen; with a fabric so flexible, the dirigible-filled sky is the limit.
Before this book is released, I wanted to touch on the variations on the steampunk theme — so you can have a full understanding of just what steampunk is before you lay down your iron coins to purchase my book.
The countdown is nearing zero. Before that clock ticks down, I wanted to share with the Dark Hayride a taste of what is to come. Here is Chapter 3 of the prequel to the I Zombie series, T-Minus Zero.
Ladies and gentlement of the Dark Hayride, I give to you the first look at the full line up of the cover reboot for the I Zombie I series. Take a gander at these sexy beauties! You may drool in fear if you like. Just make sure you have your straight-jacket on first.
I haven’t done this in a while, but I thought I’d give the Jackverse a taste of what awaits between the covers of my latest book, Hell’s Muse.
I was recently sent pictures of something that seriously made my day. Fan of I Zombie I, Mega
From Imaquolatta’s Irreverent Blog, she titles her review for Hell’s Muse “Heavenly Writing on a Hellish Subject” and goes on to say:
“The story is in several layers, a novel within a novel. The characters come at you in snapshots, mostly because this dark carnival ride moves extremely quickly. The story flies. Jack’s writing at times has the hectic frivolity of an old EC Comic, at times the darkly sensual attention to detail we might have seen in Clive Barker’s early work. And, he’s not afraid to gross you out. As the layers of reality within the work begin to melt into each other, the reader will question everything, and I assure you, this is wise. By the end of the novel, I didn’t quite know what to believe. I will not spoiler you, but I will say everything will make a kind of sense when you get there.”
In the beginning was the Word – and the word Was a lie.
And now, I give unto thee, the reading world, my most epic and twisted tale — Hell’s Muse. Dare you venture into The Nameless Saga? Dare you challenge your heart, mind, and soul? You dare, and in the dare, you leap on board the darkest hayride you’ve yet to read.
Here at the Jackverse, there is always some mischief brewing. And right now… the mischief is dark, twitchy, and oh so delicious. I have plenty of fabtastic to drop on you, so I’m just going to cut to le chase and get to the big funky… drop me a beat.
That is right, ladies and gents… the book that was EONS in the making and nearly took my life (I kid… no eons or lives were harmed in the writing of this book) is LIVE! Why is this special? Well, ladies and gentlechaps of the Jackverse, let me explain…
After a weekend of work, the first Screampark promo video is complete! Here, for the Jackverse to enjoy, is the video.
If you can scream… you’re still alive!
Screampark is almost ready. Are you? Just in case, I thought I’d offer up a tiny sample of the delights you’ll find between the covers. Here, for your reading pleasure, is the first chapter of my next book. Read on my lovelies.
This coming weekend, the fourth installment of the I Zombie series goes live! That’s right, you can get your hands on the latest adventures of Bethany Nitshimi in a few short days. This particular release is of significance for a number of reasons. Shall we count the ways? Oh lets.
That’s right lovelies and gentlemints of the Jackverse — zombies have taken over Louisville, Kentucky. Or at least that’s what one construction sign would have us believe. Of course, we all know that I believe! And boy do I believe. The zombies will arrive…no, actually they already have arrived. Only at the moment, they have been spotted in nothing more than drips and drabs. Eventually, however, those undead moaners and screamers will be hitting the flood gates with a fist full of rot, waiting to get at your sweet meats.
Ladies and Gentlemen, children of all genders…I give unto you that magical, mysterious, uber smexy superhero that crosses gender and makes everything fabulous! That’s right, Shero II!
What is better than a glorious spring day filled with bunnies, kittens, and Jackie Chan marathons? Oh! How did you guess? It’s a free copy of A Blade Away! Friday and Saturday (5/4/12 and 5/5/12) A Blade Away will be free for the taking on Amazon.com.
I’ve been tweeting zombie survival tips on twitter for some time now. They’ve been such a big hit, I thought I’d collect some of them here, for those of you not on twitter to enjoy.
So read these carefully, they might one day save your brains from the nomming horde.
Thea Gregory offers her video review of my book My Zombie My. Caution, awesome abounds.You’ve been warned.
Good day my dearest lovelies. I’ve been wanting to write this post for quite some time now. Why have I hesitated? Mostly I was just waiting to reach the point where my ego wouldn’t be bruised by showing my very early efforts at creating covers for my own books. Of course I recently realized just how silly that was and thought What the hell? My fans, friends, clients, and Shero-wanna-bees would certainly enjoy seeing how my process and my skills have grown over the years. And besides, it’s not where you’ve been, it’s where you’re going. Right? Right!
