Ladies and gentlemonsters of the Jackverse — it’s time for yet another update on the status of Cry Zombie Cry. What is turning out to be one of the most epic chapters in the I Zombie series is spilling out of my brain and onto my computer. There is a big “but”.
Why do my friends always have big butts?
The plan was to release the novel late fall 2013. That, my dears, has once again changed.
In celebration of this most recent Friday the 13th, I thought it would be a fun task of listing out my top thirteen horror films. From this list, you can pick and choose which horrific delights you watch on the second most spooky night of the year (top honors, naturally, going to Halloween). And so, without further adieu, I give to you, my loyal readers, my top 13 all time favorite horror films.
The first word on Klockwerk Kabaret is in and it’s a hit! The “Revenge Honey” from Horror Honeys drew first blood from my first steampunk novel and the blood was delicious.
Modern society is connected in more ways than ever. With more channels for information than we know what to do with, society is less informed than ever. How is that possible? How can we, as a whole, have more but know less. This question has been running rampant through my mind lately.
“If music be the food of life, play on!”
I make no bones about the fact that music is precious cargo to me. To that end, I decided, for whatever reason, to list out my favorite songs of the year, starting with my high school graduation date to the current year. These are not facts ma’am, just opinions…so take them as such and stop acting as if you’re about to point that blame-loaded finger of shame at me. Just read on and compare with your own opinions (and share while you’re at it). Do enjoy though.
If you’re into sci-fi, then you’ve probably heard about The Singularity. The gist of this is when technology advances far enough that it becomes sentient and takes over. Effectively, the human being would become obsolete. Sounds crazy right? But think about it — we’re already very close. Let me explain.
For the weekend of August 16-18, 2013, Klockwerk Kabaret can be downloaded for free from Amazon.com!
I’ve asked this on a number of occasions and places. Finally, I ask (and answer) the question here in the Jackverse. What would your zombie apocalypse survival team look like? The zpoc will require special survival skills that standard-issue life doesn’t require. And, like any good dungeons and dragons aficionado will tell you, a group must have a strong balance (and a lot of caffeine) to survive. So, without further adieu, I give to you, my devoted followers, my zombie apocalypse survival team.
This week, the wife and I have been spending time in the Big Easy. That’s right, getting real with the locals of New Orleans. It’s been a wonderful trip filled with walking, walking, and lots more walking. We’ve seen about everything there is to see and are ready to head home. But before we go, N’awlin’s needs to get itself Jack’d!
The world is slowly tearing itself apart. From the inside out, hate is ripping the human creature to shreds and showing no signs of letting up. We have forgotten the one thing that offers the strength and unifying nature to heal and right the sinking ship.
I know, it sounds hokey in a John Lennon kind of way … but it’s true. Hate has had its day, now it’s time to dismantle the engine of hatred and find our humanity again. This giant leap forward begins with one simple step: Leaving ignorance behind.
Ladies and gentle lads of the Jackverse, it is my very special honor to have the Lady of Time herself here in the Jackverse. She’s the face of Klockwerk Kabaret, a cosplay model extraordinaire, and a gem of a human being. Curtsy and bow to the lady of the hour, Maria Urban.
