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.
That’s right, I can enjoy a nice good natured ribbing at my book titles. Hey, if you can’t make fun of yourself…
Now, where was I? Oh yes, the I Zombie series. There’s lot’s cooking in that crock pot o’ death and I wanted to make sure the Jackverse was as up to date as possible. So, hop on the River Styx Express and let’s chat about the undead.
Ho Ho Hello! It’s the holidays and even the Jackverse isn’t immune. And when you think of the holidays, the first thing to come to mind is the Twelve Days of Christmas. Granted I always hear Bob and Doug McKenzie singing their version of the song. But! It’s time for a version of that song to go along with the I Zombie series. And so, my lovely lords and lordesses of leaping… let’s on with song! Drink, and be Mary. Oh shoo…
It seems I’ve had the mark of the beast slapped upon my forehead once again (this time by Danielle Blanchard). That mark? The next big thing. But since this is the second time I’ve been tagged as the ‘Next big thing’, I’m calling this the NEXT next big thing. What’s really great about this is that I get to share with you my current work in progress — which just happens to be another entry in the I Zombie series!
Warning — you must “MUHAHA” before continuing on.
Many of you probably know by now, I am working with the metal band Unsun. What started out to be a one-off effort has turned into much, much more. I have now submitted to them lyrics for four songs and am now working on a fifth. I’d worked in the form years ago with a band that I was in, so the process wasn’t altogether unfamiliar. So… I thought it would be a fun distraction to chat about my process (along with some tips and tricks) on writing lyrics for bands.
Yes, I am openly admitting that I spent countless hours of my youth (eh hem…) sitting at a table, dice in hand, battling ogres, demons, and dragons. It’s a badge I wear with pride because all of those D&D (AD&D, Vampire: The Masquerade, Heroes, and more) campaigns taught me how to survive the inevitable — the apocalypse.
“How?” you say? Let me explain, before you pants me and label me more of a nerd than I already am.
October is made for horror! Books, movies, music… your CLOSET! Bwahahaha. The means to a haunted end are so plentiful, it’s often hard to know where to start. That, my lovelies and gentleghouls, is where I come in. That’s right, the Zombie King has a few recommendations that will help you get your fright on this weekend.
These are not your ordinary scares — these are films you might never have heard of. Some are lower budget, some might even contain actual A-list actors (as if that matters), but all are sure to raise the hair on your arms and stain your undies with the tiniest bit of “oh shit!”
Oh how I have longed for this moment! Here, for your listening pleasure is the full-blown, insanely cool, smexy-sounds of the Zombie Response Team interviewing good ol’ Jack. Do enjoy.
Hello everyone in the Jackverse (And for those that aren’t sure of what “Jackverse” means: It’s anyone who dips their toes into my little world — and thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a part.)! I have something fun I want to start. This “fun” was born of an idea I had for next weeks Zombie Walk here in Louisville, KY.
