In honor of Friday the 13th, I am giving away ebook copies of both I Zombie I and Klockwerk Kabaret for FREE! That’s right, Dec 13th and 14th you can get free ebook copies of these books to nom and slurp. Do it now. Now, I say! Oh, you want links? Sure, I’ll give you links: I Zombie I and Klockwerk Kabaret.
As most of you know, I have a vested interest in this subject. Why? First and foremost, I placed the survival of mankind on the shoulders of one Bethany Nitshimi. I did this knowing I might lose the attention of some fans of the genre — a fact I am perfectly fine with. Why? For so long, women in post-apocalyptic literature have been relegated to eye candy, relationship fodder, damsels in distress, or (on occasion) a ripped-dress wearing clone with unrealistic fighting abilities (played to the nines by Milla Jovavitch). Some may call “bias” on this; but, to me, the continued portrayal of women as a weakness in the apocalypse, is an insufferable insult.
Hell’s Muse was published a while ago. That book is the beginning of the Nameless Saga and will spawn plenty of nasty, terror-filled, horror-filled nightmares. The second of the series will begin soon…until then, I want to offer up for your pleasure, a lead-in short that will serve as the underpinnings of the third novel in the series. And so, without further adieu, I give you…The Devil Inside.
Have you ever had those moments where the lights are on, but everything is as dark as pitch? If you know of which I speak, then these lullabies for the damned should ring a bell so true you might wonder if you can trust yourself with the lights out. Come into my vicious parlor and see if you can escape the snapping of your own sanity.
As I type, the 2013 Coffin Hop is undead and kicking! If you’re unaware of this wondrous time of year, it is a celebration of authors of the dark fantastic. Horror authors of every bent collect together on one site so you, the reader, can enjoy works sure to get your skin to shrivel on its meat.
The Coffin Hop is the web’s most awesome literary haunted house. 70+ bloggers, artists, writers, and Halloween freaks sharing horror tales and spirited fun. It’s so amahz frightening, even Pinhead and Freddy Kruger are afraid to peek their heads in.
And what’s on the slab for this year? Read on MacDuff!
I wanted to give everyone a treat before the most hallowed of nights arrives. This treat is from the up-coming eighth novel in the I Zombie series, Cry Zombie Cry. If you’ve read enough the series, you know how fond I am of nightmare scenes. Here is one I’m confident will have you wanting more of this novel to nom! This scene is later on in the book (Chapter 20). I won’t give anything away (and there is a LOT to give away at this point) other than to say the nightmares do serve a purpose. MU…HA…HA.
It’s that time of the year my lovelies — October. That means but one thing, Halloween is right around the corner. And although many/most of us are too old to enjoy the age-old tradition of trick or treating, that doesn’t mean we can’t have some adult-flavored fun on this most glorious of holiday seasons!
With that in mind, I’ve come up with a few ideas for you to rip off so your Halloween is as glorious as the Zombie Kings! I’ll run this as a series…so as to not inundate the jackverse with information. So, what in the hell am I blathering on about? On with the ideas!
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.
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.
Fade in from black. The howling wind blows through the swamp-soaked trees to bring the stench of death and dismemberment into the nostrils of the unsuspecting. A swirling mist appears and grows thick with discord and lust.
…and then they appear. Billie-Jean and Sarah Jayne of Frankenfemmes! Two lovely ladies intent on bringing the best reviews of the best of B Horror. Can you NOT be intrigued? You can’t – that’s how. And I have them here, undead and in casket, for my latest Get Jack’d!
The other day I received a box in the mail. Neatly and lovingly packed inside the box was a very special gift…a gift that made me realize that my work touches people on many levels.
