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.
As many of you know, I am taking a very short breaking from the zombieverse to go back to some of my best friends in the Fringe Killer series. At the moment I am about twenty five percent complete with the first draft of Endgame and I wanted to share with you something I experienced last night while writing.
Recently I had been torn about what to write next. I finished the first draft of Die Zombie Die, which meant I was now ready to start writing something new (I always have a first draft and first rewrites going at once). I developed two new ideas:
- A new zombie series, based on the world created in the I Zombie trilogy.
- A vampire novel.
I have to say, I’ve been a bit negligent in keeping my readership up on the latest reviews coming in for my books. Lately, they’ve been pouring in and they’ve been all quite good. I thought I would share some snippets with you all.
It’s been a while since I ran a sample of A Blade Away. This particular scene is one that displays one of Lakme’s tragic flaws — and another brutal glimpse into his past. Purchase A Blade Away on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, or in Paperback from Amazon.
That’s correct…the paperback editions of both I Zombie I and Gothica are now available from Amazon.com. Exciting times, these are.
Yet another sample for everyone to partake in. This one is from my first book A Blade Away. I wanted to highlight this particular chapter to show a moment when the killer displays just how out of control he has become. This is not a scene with a victim — only him inside his car. A Blade Away can be purchased on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords. Enjoy!
Many writers talk about music when referencing their work. I am very guilty of that. Not only do I often count on music to be my muse, I work it into my books in any way I can. Why? Music can so easily elicit mood and emotion in ways the written word alone can not always do. So music will crop up in my novels in the form of a simple mention of a title or artist or, in some cases, I will use lyrics (with permission by the artist of course.) And since music is such a strong influence over me and my work, I thought I would discuss how music worked its way into my currently published titles (and the titles I am working on.)
That’s right ladies and gentlemen, it’s time for a Get Jack’d giveaway! I want to give readers the chance to read my first novel, A Blade Away for free. Free! What else can you get for free?
I thought it would be an interesting study in character to interview one of my favorite creations, Skip Abrahm. Skip is an officer on the Louisville Police Department and has been partnered with Jamie Davenport, serving as her mentor and best friend. Skip is also an openly gay man who brings light and life to any situation. Let’s see what Skip has to say.
Hello all! I wanted to post a note here on Get Jack’d that I am now, officially looking for reviewers for my first book A Blade Away. If you are interested in getting a free, pre-release copy, contact me via email at jlwallen AT monkeypantz DOT net.
I totally spaced on Sample Sunday yesterday, so I’m offering up a sample of A Blade Away. This book is the first in the Fringe Killer series and will be on sale within the next couple of weeks. The sale prices is $0.99, which a real bargain considering the amount of entertainment you get. And believe me, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry — it’s better than Cats!
