New Box Set3

EPIC APOCALYPSE – APOCALYPTIC HORROR BOXED SET – 6+ BUNDLE

Epic Apocalypse Boxed Set

Welcome to the Apocalypse

Tis’ the season for all things that go bump in the night. Today’s top selling horror authors bring to you this boxed set of six full length apocalyptic tales and a teaser from award winning author Joe McKinney. Turn the lights off, enjoy the ride and find out what is lurking under your bed.

Mark Tufo – Zombie Fallout
“Working as both straight up survival fiction and comedy, Mark Tufo’s FALLOUT is a gory, laugh out loud tale of a community of heroes, cowards and misfits struggling against zombies. Tufo’s unlikely hero is one of the funniest and most endearing characters I’ve seen in zombie fiction.” – Craig DiLouie, author of TOOTH AND NAIL and THE INFECTION

Heath Stallcup – Return Of The Phoenix: Monster Squad
Stallcup’s debut is a fun, rollercoaster ride of a story, and easily the best that I’ve read all year. It’s part military fiction, part horror, with elements of fantasy and science fiction thrown in the mix. Yet somehow, this novel has the stark realism and well-researched detail you would expect to find in nonfiction. The author’s vivid characters and comfortable writing style left me believing in all the things that go bump in the night and more importantly, in the men and women who hunt them down! – Jaye H

John O’Brien – A New World: Chaos
Once I picked up this novel and began reading I could not put it down. The characters are well developed and the story is filled with edge-of-your-seat action. I dare you to pick up a copy and read it. – Troy D

Armand Rosamilia – Darlene Bobich: Zombie Killer
Upon finishing this book, I asked myself “What makes this one different from all the others I’ve read?”. I’m here to tell you just that. Armand is meticulously descriptive, his characters are colorful & he doesn’t fail to leave out any gory zombie details. His zombies are still creepily human, with desires beyond eating brains. Darlene is loveable, strong, & heroic, while being fragile & very female at the same time. I found myself holding my breath more than once, wondering what was waiting around the proverbial corner for our little band of survivors. The end is surprising, & leaves you craving more. A wonderful, entertaining read. I’m a fan for life!! – Susan M

Joe McKinney – Dead Wait Teaser from Bram Stoker Award winning author
“One of those rare books that starts fast and never ever lets up. . . a rollercoaster ride of action, violence and zombie horror.” –Bram Stoker Award-winning author Jonathan Maberry on Dead City
“Gritty suspense. . .You’re gonna like this guy.” –Tom Monteleone
“A rising star on the horror scene.”–Fearnet.com

Shawn Chesser – Trudge: Surviving The Zombie Apocalypse
Author Shawn Chesser has written a zombie story full of scares, excitement, sadness and kick-butt action. Unlike other authors, even some of the big names, Chesser understands female character as well as male. This is such an important thing in a book with strong characters that are of both sex. I would recommend this book to all zombie fans, it’s a good one. – examiner

James Cook- No Easy Hope: Surviving The Dead
I absolutely adored this book! The storyline and the characters kept my interest and I couldn’t put it down! This has to be in the top five of my favorite zombie books so far. For those that love zombie stories this is a must read! – G. Atkinson

Darlene Bobich: Zombie Killer is the prequel to the Dying Days series. A novella I am very proud of. And you should read it. 

That’s a ton of cool books for less than $3.00 (I used a calculator)… seriously, if I wasn’t already in these box sets I’d be buying them myself!

Spotlight On Jack Wallen #Imaginarium

SPOTLIGHT ON: Jack Wallen

 

How did you get involved in the upcoming Imaginarium convention?

I remember someone posting about them looking for panelists on a writers group. I thought “Why not? I have some wisdom that might help SOMEONE…surely. Right?” And seeing as how the event is being held in my home city, it was a zombie-esque no-brainer.

 

What is your latest release and what genre is it?

My latest release (by the time this posts, I’m guessing), is Cry Zombie Cry. It’s horror and the eighth book in my I Zombie series.

 czc_cover

Quick description of it.

With the Guignol Gang fully armed and prepared to defend the castle, Bethany and company are off to see the Wizard of Odd

The long-awaited entry to the I Zombie series has arrived.

And it’s ready to rock.

Bethany Nitshimi is back and ready to crush the Zero Day Collective with a wall of sound. Together with the metal band Unsun, Bethany will have the undead horde banging their heads until brain runs thick in the streets.

If it’s too loud, you’re too old…or dead.

 

Something unique about it.

This is the first in what I’m calling my “Rock Cycle”. The Polish metal band, Unsun, stars in this novel and served as the inspiration for me continuing that theme into The Last Casket series (starting Kitty in a Casket) and a new series (starring another band that  I will announce very soon).

 

Links for people to buy it.

The book will be live August 21st. Until then, you can check out the official page for the book on my site (which will have the purchase link once the book is live).

How did you get involved in the upcoming Imaginarium convention?

I am an author/writer working with Seventh Star Press.

 

What is your latest release and what genre is it?

TRANSPORT: Book One is my latest release. It is a cross between a Military Action-Thriller and Zombie Apocalypse.

 Transport Book One

Quick description of it.

Captain Jake Billet and his quirky crew of military misfits have to covertly bring a much hated lakeshore government official roughly 40 miles across West Michigan while trying to avoid everything and everyone who wants to stop, kill, eat and dismember them along the way. And not necessarily in that order.  

 

Something unique about it.

It’s a post-post zombie apocalypse world. We’re still here. They’re still here. The local zombie “civilians” are protected. The outside city limits ones, fair game if they don’t get you first. A very militarized WALKING DEAD-type series with a 72-ton armored heavy transport vehicle and crew dealing with it all.

MandoWriMo – Slight Change Of Plans


Just a quick update for ya…

The best laid plans of mice and men and all that…

I love planning out my month, because it usually changes halfway through… which is exactly what August did to me, but I roll with the punches and adapt and survive… and totally stress out. 

The changes:

1. The 30k movie adaptation ended up being PRIORITY #1 and also ended up being 38k and written exclusively for quite a few days, which is always odd for me. I like to work on 2-4 projects each day if possible, but this one needed to be released. And it was. Zulu Six: Origins is the expanded book version of the upcoming independent film (they tell me a later 2014/early 2015 release) and I’m quite happy with the way it turned out. Readers who remember my Miami Spy Games: Russian Zombie Gun novel will enjoy this. Coincidentally (or not), I wrote it for the same people. 

But adding an extra 8k to this forced me to drop some other stories I wanted to finish… keep reading, you’ll see it…

2. Children of The Grave short story is done. 10k and I liked where the story ultimately took me. I just need to clean it up and send it off to the publisher, Crystal Lake Publishing, for the editing round now. 

3. Change Jar Books Part 3-5… I finished Part 3 and sent it to my editor a week late due to other deadlines. It was supposed to be out last week, but I’m hoping I can get it released this week. I wrote only 1k on Part 4 so far, a victim of adding to the movie adaptation. I’m hoping to finish at least part 4 before next Sunday, when August ends.

4. Necromance 5 is done. 5k and I just got it back from my editor. Now it will go to Hazardous Press for their turn before releasing it in their Hazardous Encounters horror erotica short story series. I’m really beginning to have fun with the main character, a sexy demon hunter who loves Metal and guys and gals. 

5. Dying Days: Origins 2 was another victim this month, but it is my main focus this week to get as far ahead on it as I can. I only managed 5k, so I have almost 11k left to write to hit 25k, although the story looks like it will be longer. I also set up a pre-sale page on Amazon at 99 cents (when the book is released it will go to the normal $2.99, so get yours now). The cover should also be ready in a week or so, featuring David Monsour and his back-story.

How am I doing? 54k in 25 days so far… a bit ahead, but need to finish as many projects as I can, because I just signed another huge movie adaptation contract, which will begin on September 1st and run until October 30th… 100k in 60 days. Can I do it? Of course I can. But I’m hoping I can also find the time to write everything else I want to write in September. 

Regardless, this is going to be fun…

Spotlight On Jay Wilburn #Imaginarium


me

SPOTLIGHT ON: Jay Wilburn

 

How did you get involved in the upcoming Imaginarium convention?

I’ve made the mistake of writing in a wide range of genre instead of establishing an identity. As a result, I’ve made contact with a number of people that are smarter and more successful than me with genre circles, publishing, and such. I’m also not entirely sure that this is not some elaborate intervention that is being staged to talk me out of being a full-time writer and focusing on a respectable day job that adults are supposed to have. I guess I have a thing or two to offer as a guest, but I sure have a lot to learn. Imaginarium seems to be shaping up to be uniquely set for providing great content regarding creative writing, the process, and the life.

 

What is your latest release and what genre is it?

My latest release is Zombies Believe In You with Hazardous Press.

 zombie collection cover 2

Quick description of it.

Zombies Believe In You is a collection of zombie novellas and longer “short” stories. Some of them explore fantasy worlds and distant time periods like zombies.

 

Something unique about it.

I think adding zombie grit to high fantasy is something a little different. One story focuses on economics through the apocalypse. Another novella and short story combination tell the same events from two perspectives creating entirely different meaning from the same timeline. There is a story set so far into the future that the origin of the zombies has become legend on a Biblical/religious scale. There are elements of classic romance in one story. It is either brilliant or a mess as all zombie fiction should be.

August Is MandoWriMo – Catchy, Right?


snoopy

I’ve been having loads of fun these past months, going to horror conventions and running the Summer of Zombie Blog Tour right after doing Authors Supporting Our Troops, and doing a month of promotion for my latest release, Dying Days 4… but now it’s time to get serious again… the actual goal each day, each week and each month is to write. Right?

I have quite a few projects I’m working on right now (I’ll list them below so you get an idea of the crunch) and need to get back on track. To that end, I’ve decided to unofficially do an August NaNoWriMo of 50k in the month, although mine will be 60k and I must do it. No excuses. No days off and hitting 10k a week and being done with it. I need a true 14k a week, 60k in 31 days month. If I have to do a 24 Hour Writing Marathon to catch up or get ahead, so be it. I call it MandoWriMo. Because I have an ego, I guess…  the extra day gives me only one shot to slack, too. 

To this end I’m not going to be on Facebook much, except to promote other authors with guest posts on my page (but those are sent to me pretty much completed, so no big deal) and do some basic promotion to keep me out there. If all goes according to plan, I should have a couple of anthologies I’m in to promote as well such as the first two State of Horror ones from Charon Coin Press, so looking forward to that. 

I’ll still be doing my Mando’s Manic Melodies show on 97.3 FM http://www.flaglerbeachradio.com on Friday nights from 10 til midnight EST, but expect quite a few to be pre-recorded. For August I’ll put my Monday night show, Mando’s Metal Covers, on hold and see where I stand in September. My main focus (besides writing) will still be Arm Cast: Dead Sexy Horror Podcast. New episodes every Friday. I’m having fun with it so far. 

Now, onto my list… as I’ve been doing for years, this is more for me than the readers of this blog. I hope you’ll follow along and see how I do, but for me it just gives it another place where I can get called out on if I slack off. 

1. Movie Adaptation (30k) – 10k done but I only get to see the dailies of the actual filmed movie every few days, so this one is taking forever. A new experience in how to write for me, too.

2. Children of The Grave anthology (10k) – I really need to get my head around my story so I can actually write it. This has been due so need to make it a priority

3. Change Jar Books Part 3,4 and 5 (15k) – 2k done so far, really behind. I need to tackle these this month and get closer to finishing the Flagler Beach Fiction Series

4. Necromance 5 (5k) – 3k left to write. I know the story, just need to sit down and finish it. 

5. Dying Days: Origins 2 (25k) – 16k left to write. Looking for a November release, so I need to get moving on this first draft.

That gives me 62k right there… I can do it if I get focused, right? 

Wish me luck… and if I’m ignoring you on Facebook I have a really good reason. Or I’m using it as an excuse to ignore you. Either way…
