The Genre Minx Reviews A Life of Death

Amy at The Genre Minx Book Reviews just notified me of her review of A Life of Death. It's always nice to see how my books are received by readers. Give it a look.

Summer Begins with Roxie Prince Rocking her Review

Well, May is almost over. Happy Memorial Day! So much is happening. The school year just ended, so now I get to spend more time writing. Woohoo! That's always wonderful. I hope you look forward to the summer as much as I do.

A couple days ago I had the pleasure of hearing from Roxie Prince, multi-genre indie author and extreme survivor. She was born HIV+ and has had to deal with it all her life. And no, I'm not outting her here. She talks about it on her site in addition to reading and reviewing books. You can see what she had to say about book 1 in the A Life of Death trilogy on her book review site, Survival Stories.

Look around and see what she's about. I'm certain there will be plenty to pique your interest, so send her some love and support!

Zombies... They're Coming!!!

Hey there, wonderful people!

And yes, I just called you wonderful.This writing adventure wouldn’t be nearly as fun without you… and the zombies of course.

Yes, I said it... the zombies.

I have never written a zombie novel myself... at least not yet. However, as a member of the Horror Writers Association, it makes sense that I’m a big fan of The Walking Dead, Steve Kuhn’s Dext of the Dead series, and the more traditional classics.

There’s something new coming out though... something tempting, vivid, and scary I thought I would share. Today, May 21st, a great fellow author, hat lover and friend by the name of M.A. Robbins just released book one in his Zombie Uprising trilogy. (Yes, hat lover. He has great tastes. Just sayin'!)

What’s more, books two and three are already finished and will be released every two weeks for the next month and a half.

Yeah… that’s what I'm talking about. Awesome! No year-long wait for the next book in the series.

And Mike gave me a great opportunity to pass along to my fans… a free look at an exciting excerpt so you can see if it’s for you. Like test driving a car before anyone else, you get an early peek. 

Just follow this link to The Awakening and see for yourself. Best of all, you don't have to wait if you want to read more. 

It was released today.

Talk soon,

PS: So how about you? What are your favorite zombie movies and books? Let me know below.

Busy But Meaningful April

As the school year slowly winds down, I am gearing up for the Sell More Books Show Summit in Chicago this weekend. It looks to be a great time for authors of varying paths and genres to come together and learn from one another. The podcast is a popular one that has run for years, but this year many highly successful authors have come together to share what they know and record the latest show. I'm looking forward to it. Should be fun.

In addition, A Life of Death has garnered more attention with the release of the audiobook. (Listen to an excerpt through Amazon and Audible here.) Readers are continuing to post their thoughts. It is always nice to hear how Alex and Paige have endeared themselves to readers, especially when it's touched someone like some of these recent reviews.

Speaking of... recently esteemed author and respected Amazon Vine Voice reviewer Sheila Deeth read and reviewed the entire A Life of Death trilogy, calling it, "Dark but tinged with surprising light." While she enjoyed the first, it seems like the series grew on her more and more with every book, going from review headlines like "A smoothly enticing read" in the Golden Bulls to "Thought-provoking, exciting mystery" in Sacrifices. Read all of her reviews on her Amazon page. Or find out more about Sheila on her website.

On the writing front, I have a number of projects underway and even a special project I will announce in coming months. Here's a hint: it's in cooperation with a great writer, Marcus Calvert. Till then, I'll leave you to research who this writing talent is if you don't already know.

Happy reading!

An Exciting March!

Hello everyone,
This month was certainly exciting. So much happened. Woohoo for March!

Build Your Authors Alley on Amazon
I had the pleasure of attending Cleveland ConCoction 2018 over my birthday for the release of my newest book, Build Your Authors Alley. Although the print copies weren’t ready yet, the convention was great. I participated in panels about flash fiction, self-publishing vs. traditional, best methods for your elevator pitch, and marketing for authors. I even got to read a short excerpt from the recently released Sacrifices, Book Three in the A Life of Death trilogy. It was great fun.

Over the weekend I made many new friends like Tony Isabella (writer of Black Lightning comic book and television series), while conversing with old friends like S. Andrew Swann, J. Thorn, and Addie King. During the author soiree Saturday night, we had drinks and discovered the secrets of writing great books. It was fantastic and there were so many wonderful people, I know I didn’t get the chance to mention them all! ConCoction has become a family of authors and friends, and it is always fantastic when we get together with new and old members. Even the new hotel worked out great (with the exception of one vindictive light fixture that tried to take out a guest author). Overall it was wonderful.

With the change in location, all of the volunteers expected a small drop in attendance, but boy were we wrong. ConCoction 2018 had the highest attendance of any year thus far. The con seems to be growing every year, even with venu changes. To top off the weekend, Camille and Kinnerly (the Harp Twins) gave five wonderful performances that we could hear right across the hall in Authors Alley. I hadn’t seen them since DuckCon back in 2015, and they are just as good as I remember. Give them a listen, but see them in concert if you get a chance.

Listen on Amazon
Lastly, as of yesterday the audiobook for A Life of Death was released on Amazon and Audible. Ian Gordon from HorrorBabble did an incredible job. Just listen to the free retail excerpt and tell me what you think. The audiobook for book 2, The Golden Bulls, is currently underway.

Thanks again for visiting. Check back later for more updates.
