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…

Don’t Believe Your Own Hype


the thought process

Open letter (OK, blog post, get off my case) to Myself today from Me three years ago… 

I’m damn proud of you. It is unreal how much you’ve accomplished and how many goals you set before you and have surpassed. If you’d said three years ago you’d have over 100 releases on Amazon, worked with some great small press companies, attended World Horror and other conventions not just in Florida but in many other places, had stories published in some great anthologies with other great authors, had a couple of your story ideas turned into upcoming movies, signed a thirteen book deal with a Hollywood production company, got on the actual radio to talk and play the songs you grew up with, met the woman of your dreams and STILL own the beat-up Kia AND it still started, I’d have laughed. 

All amazing things, and a ton more you’ve accomplished in the last 36 months or so. You got away from a horrible, mind-numbing relationship filled with daily fighting, jealousy over a potential writing career and following dreams you’ve had since you were twelve years old. You set many goals and keep setting goals, and you are easily in the best place you’ve ever been in your life. 

Pat yourself on the back, smile as you sip $20 a pound Death Wish Coffee and eat expensive meals in fancy restaurants and live comfortably in a big new house watching the 55 inch TV you bought with some of your earnings over the 36 months. Pat that growing belly, filled with that expensive food and coffee, and keep smiling. 

And then…

Stop acting like a Big Shot, because you haven’t written a damn word in the last three days and your daily writing goal of 2,000 words a day is kicking your ass. When is the last time you actually hit the goal, or hit it feeling good and not just relieved you actually made it but dreading what tomorrow was going to bring?

When was the last time you actually shut Facebook off or didn’t answer an e-mail immediately? How many Pinterest and New MySpace followers do you actually need? Is breaking 70,000 Twitter followers really more important than writing today? Right now?

Remember Joe McKinney at World Horror Convention? While you drank and laughed with a bar filled with other authors, Joe was upstairs in his hotel room writing. Yep, working. Why? Because he gets it. You have a deadline, remember? Which is now getting closer and closer. 

Sure, you finished Dying Days 4. It only took you about 14 months since Dying Days 3 was released, which you swore wasn’t going to happen. God forbid you start on Dying Days 5, right? By the time that comes out Mark Tufo will be on Zombie Fallout 19

So… sit back and Google your name again and read another wonderful review about a release you wrote two years ago. Enjoy the praise from your many, many followers and your peers in the writing world. 

Who, if they are better than you, got that way because they don’t stop writing and doing the important things, the top three…

1. write

2. write

3. write

Now, shut up and turn off the damn internet and get in your work before you check your Amazon sales for the fifth time today.

FanBoy Moment: Meeting Brian Keene at WHC


About eight years ago I was a completely newbie author with a couple of fantasy books out and maybe three horror short stories published to my credit (I have a lot more horror stories published now), and I went to Horrorfind Weekend convention in Baltimore, Maryland. I sat at a table in the dealer room and sold a few books and met a few people. It was fun. 

But I stayed in the dealer room for 99% of the weekend, convinced no one there would give me the time of day. And, unfortunately, I was kinda right. A couple of authors were friendly (Michael Laimo said hi to me) but I was just there. And it was my own fault, because I didn’t talk to anyone or make any effort. Believe it or not, I was shy and insecure among all these great authors. 

Cut to the bar area that night. 

Brian Keene was sitting there, and I knew who he was thanks to MySpace (remember MySpace?) and because his book The Rising had completely knocked me off of my feet. I kid you not. I owe the Dying Days zombie series to this man, because without his book I wouldn’t have attempted zombie fiction. I even wrote a piece about it conveniently titled “Why I Write About Zombies” (feel free to read it and then come back for the rest of this post… I’ll wait…)

Brian Keene - The Rising zombie

I walked up to the bar, as close to Brian as I could get without bumping into him, and casually turned and stared at him like a little schoolgirl. Brian Keene turned to me with a smile and said hi. 

I said blahbehchickablehblehugghhhh and felt my chest and throat tighten. Then I did what every cool person does when meeting an idol… I ran away like a little schoolgirl.

Cut to eight years later and across the country in Portland Oregon. 

The World Horror Convention, and while I’d come a long way but had much more to do and to rise, I felt I’d earned a place at least at the kid’s table. And I was fine with it. And when I heard Brian Keene was going to be the Grandmaster of the weekend, I was excited. And then nervous. 

I wanted to meet him. I needed to meet him. I posted on Facebook about my last and only encounter with him, and how this was going to be cosmic payback. I would stride up to him with a grin, pat him on the back and we’d hug it out like real men. Or something like that. 

Of course, on Thursday afternoon, as Special Gal and I had lunch in the hotel restaurant, Brian Keene walked into the lobby and I might have squealed a little. She thought it was quite amusing and ‘threatened’ to call him over, but I was not ready. I needed time to prepare. 

Cut to a few hours later. 

Special Gal and I were walking through the lobby, minding our own business, when I saw Brian Keene chatting with a few people. As I went to go past him he suddenly turned and noticed me. He smiled and said hi. He put his hand out and I turned my brain off and gripped his hand, shaking firmly. 

He said something but I have no idea what because I was too busy trying not to talk or say something incoherent. I nodded, smiled back, and walked away. Special Gal busted my chops the rest of the night but I was flying. 

The next time I saw Brian Keene was at a zombie panel, and as it wrapped up Special Gal turned to me and said in no uncertain terms we weren’t leaving the room without a picture of me and Brian together. 

I nodded dumbly. She asked him to take it and he smiled and took us into the hallway.

Then he put his arm around me and said “we need to do the Devil Horns, right?” 

He had either done his homework and knew who I was (and that I was a fellow Metalhead) or it was an excellent guess. Either way, I was damn proud as the picture was taken. But, wait… there’s more…

“Are you going to the Gross Out Contest tonight?” Brian asked me.

I had no intention of going but I said yes. Of course I was going to go! 

We made small talk for a few minutes and the guy was just genuine. He gave me a few minutes of his time and even said to find him at the bar that night so we could have a drink. 

I learned three things from this encounter… 

1. I am still such a FanBoy when it comes to him but at least I strung a few sentences together

2. THIS is the way you treat fellow authors, no matter how big or small they are. Brian Keene’s WHC posts aren’t just about what he did and accomplished but about pointing out all the new writers he met during the con, and praising the new batch of authors who are inspired by him

3. Special Gal is the greatest woman I have ever met and I am damn lucky to have her in my corner to help me fumble through the non-writing parts of this career. Friends lucky enough to have met her in Portland can attest to this

Brian Keene 

My goal for years to come is not only to emulate him but also to remember this lesson. Oh, and now I want to hang out with him again and pick his brain for hours… and I’ll try not to make it too creepy…

“Extreme Undead Collection” Updated and with New Cover! #dyingdays


I’ve been looking at me sales of books in the last few months, and they have been increasing each week, which I am thankful for. Yet another reason I’m glad I dropped out of retail management and took on the life of a full-time author. 

I also took a hard look at some of my titles and decided to do something about it. Not too long ago I changed the cover of Darlene Bobich: Zombie Killer to better imagine what she looks like, and I’m at it again… 

But this time for a slightly different reason. The original cover for the Extreme Undead Collection was quite the eye-catcher, created by the very talented Nic Burgess. Here is is:

EUCcover

Unfortunately, Amazon took one look at the cover and decided it was erotica and subsequently buried it without me realizing what they’d done. I had a total of 4 sales in the last year on this four-novella collection, while the Dying Days Collection has sold steady and increasing in sales each and every month. Two of the novellas are shared in both releases, too, so I knew it wasn’t the content being the problem. 

So, I’ve updated the book a bit: brand new cover, courtesy of longtime Dying Days cover artist Ash Arceneaux, and I moved the novellas themselves around a bit so it reads better. Here’s the new cover:

“Dying Days 4″ Contest – Be In The Book!


 

Dying Days 4 Cover

I talked about doing a contest for readers to be a part of Dying Days 4 and become a character in the book itself Here. The poll is now closed and we have a winning idea, but it wasn’t a landslide. In fact, all 3 ideas on the poll were pretty close… 

So there will be TWO different ways for you to be picked to star in Dying Days 4…

1. Send me a cool pic of you holding any (or all) of the Dying Days books. It could be either Dying Days, Dying Days 2, Dying Days 3, Highway To Hell, Darlene Bobich: Zombie Killer, Still Dying, Still Dying 2, Dying Days: Origins, Dying Days: The Siege of European Village, Dying Days: Siege 2… You’ll automatically be entered in for a chance to star in it. AND… for every book in the picture I’ll give you another chance, as well as bonus entries for originality! Note: I will use the pictures as promotional items on my blog, Facebook page, etc. 

2. Reviewing any of the above-mentioned Dying Days books will also get you a shot at being in the book. It doesn’t matter what your rating is, as long as it is on Amazon (and bonus chances for every other place like B&N and Goodreads you post it as well), and you’ll also get your name added for each and every review, so if you review all 10 books listed above and post them to Amazon, B&N and Goodreads, it gives you 30 chances to win! And I’ll be really happy, too…

Any questions? Too bad. it’s simple enough! Send pictures to me at  armandrosamilia@gmail.com and I’ll be collecting them until April 1st, when I’ll make a decision or two…

Authors Supporting Our Troops Postage Drive In St Louis!


I want to thank Margie Colton and Jerry Benns for all the support and help with the Authors Supporting Our Troops event I’ve organized. It’s amazing the outpouring of ideas and support I’ve received… when I put this together I knew I’d have a good amount of authors willing to donate books, but I had no idea just how many… and in only the second full week of collecting author-signed books, over 500 books have been shipped to me. I am grateful for those who are non-authors or authors who want to do more and are collecting and donating money to help offset the massive cost to ship these books. I am humbled and honored to know all these wonderful people who have taken their time to help me –

Postage Drive

In a town south of St. Louis Missouri, the Hillsboro R-3 School District is organizing an event to support the Authors Supporting Our Troops (A.S.O.T.) book drive. Margie Colton, National Junior Honor Society sponsor and Jr. High teacher, is organizing a postage drive, to run in conjunction with the National Junior Honor Society’s (NJHS) yearly USO drive.  The postage drive will raise money and awareness for Armand Rosamilia’s Authors Supporting Our Troops book drive. Colton became involved with A.S.O.T. through the A.S.O.T. Facebook Event page.

A.S.O.T. reaches out to authors seeking donations of their original, signed, printed books to be shipped over to Afghanistan and Kuwait and distributed by military personnel, to those at the base, providing much needed reading material. The response from authors has been amazing with hundreds of books coming in daily to author Armand Rosamilia. Over 400 authors and publishers have committed to providing books with personalized messages. With more books arriving daily, the cost of shipping the boxes of books to these remote locations has become overwhelming. To help with the cost of shipping, limited edition t-shirts sporting the logo for the book drive have been made available with over 100 shirts sold at this time. However, the t-shirt sales will only scratch the surface for the cost of shipping.

Colton, who has been involved in many charity drives within the Hillsboro School District, saw the opportunity for her students to get involved in the book drive. By organizing the postage drive, Colton’s students will help bring an awareness of the importance of reading along with a way to help support the brave men and women serving so far from home. She met with the district’s librarians who agreed to keep collection boxes in their libraries for donations from anyone in the district. The students involved with NJHS worked to create the collection boxes. Once the postage drive ends, these students will gather the boxes, count the donations, and send the funds to A.S.O.T. to help offset the postage cost of shipping. An added incentive to help garner participation was created for the postage drive in the form of a competition between the academic teams in the Jr. High, with the winning team receiving a pizza and ice cream party.

When Colton was asked about the inspiration for the postage drive, she had this to say…

“Sending books to our troops overseas was such a great idea!  My students recently wrote letters to service men and women thanking them for their service to our country.  Those letters meant so much to the recipients, it reminded me that we need to honor those who keep us free in any way we can. My kids agreed and wanted to do more for the troops overseas.  The A.S.O.T. book drive is so special in that not only are the books hard copies to be shared, but also the personalized messages of gratitude are meaningful by letting our troops know we appreciate them so much. The kids are beginning to realize the difficulties of those serving in Afghanistan and the importance of reading for enjoyment.  The postage drive seemed like a great opportunity for the kids to get involved and help out.  I am looking forward to a successful collection and being able to help out in such a great cause.”

The libraries and offices throughout the school district contain collection boxes with the following message:

ASOT Postage drive

NJHS is collecting donations for postage to help offset the cost of sending books to our troops in Afghanistan.    Authors Supporting Our Troops (ASOT) is a group of over 300 authors donating and signing books for the troops overseas.  Oftentimes the troops do not have access to ereaders and so a real book is very important to help the brave men and women far from home pass the time.  The authors are signing and sending messages in the books letting our troops know how much they are appreciated back home. 

Any money donated helps to send more books over to our troops.

Thank you for your support!

The postage drive not only helps the A.S.O.T ship the books but helps the students work within the community, build team work, support our deployed troops, and emphasize the importance of reading.

Donation drive details:

Location: Hillsboro R-3 School District, Hillsboro, Missouri

Dates: February 17th –March 3rd

Thirteen Book Deal!

I’m proud to announce I’ve signed a book deal with AK Waters Productions for 2014, and it is an impressive one. Not only will I be writing novellas in the zombie, thriller, military and horror genres, but combining two or more genres with each subsequent release.

 17183368

AK Waters was part of the team that first brought you Miami Spy Games, which I wrote, and was released in December 2012. Combining AK’s extensive military knowledge (much of it first-hand) as well as his movie and television connections with my writing skills, the new venture will blossom into a long and prosperous union as I work for them.

The vision of this new company is to create fiction ready to be pitched to major motion picture companies as well as television studios, and seamlessly move from the print page to the big screen. I am quite proud to have signed this contract and working closely with Mr. Waters to ensure each release is well-written and fun. This is what AK Waters Productions has termed ‘militainment’.

The first release for this new company is Zombie Football by Armand Rosamilia and AK Waters…

“Dying Days 4″ Cover Reveal #zombie #novel


Dying Days 4 Cover

Yep, here it is… the long-awaited Dying Days 4 cover art, once again magnificently created by Ash Arceneaux (www.asharceneaux.deviantart.com), who’s done the rest of the covers in the series and quite a few others for me. I’m obviously a fan of her work and I hope you are, too. 

But don’t get too excited, because I’m not done with writing it just yet. In the coming days and weeks I’ll update you onto my progress of the first draft and might give you a tease or two along the way.

I also want readers to know this installment of the Dying Days zombie series will be much longer than the previous releases. As I’ve stated on my blog a few weeks ago, I want to give more of the story with each new release, and instead of 25-35k of story you can expect 45-55k (or maybe more as I write the first draft and then edit) for Dying Days 4

I’ll also be bringing in a few characters you might have forgotten about along the way, too… and a few new ones you’ll love and/or hate… but, as always, Darlene Bobich will be the main story for you to follow along… 

AND… if you want to be in the book as well? Find out how HERE

If you haven’t begun the Dying Days stories yet,  I will hunt you down and… I mean… what are you waiting for?

Darlene Bobich: Zombie Killer is the perfect spot to begin your journey!

Authors Supporting Our Troops


Armand with Joe McKinney

When you meet your idols sometimes they don’t live up to the hype. Sometimes they are grumpy and ornery and couldn’t care less about you. Such is definitely not the case when it comes to Joe McKinney. I met the man at World Horror Convention in New Orleans last year and he was even better in person than in my mind. Yes, I did the Fanboy thing at first but he ended up being a great guy with a genuine love of what he was doing and everything around him. 

Why am I telling you this? Because when he asked me (and many other authors) to help him as he collected books from us to ship overseas to some of our troops, I jumped at the chance. And so did so many others. He was able to put quite a few books into the hands of our military overseas. I never forgot about it, and decided to do my own event this year, especially when I found out from Joe he didn’t have the same contact overseas. 

But I did. 

My girlfriend Shelly (Special Gal to those in the know) had a great contact she’s known for years, someone she considers her family. I’ve been lucky enough to meet him and he is quite impressive. He’ll be coming back to the States in late March and then shipping overseas, at which point he’ll be my contact for this book drive. But let Shelly give you more detail about him:

Shelly: “I met James about 8 years ago when he was 17, while working in a youth department of the church I was attending.  He was a quiet young man living in a rough situation. I starting getting to know him and over the years he has become like a son to me. We got him through high school and he started working and then he started thinking about the military. I support him 110% and he has turned into a wonderful young man who celebrated his 25th birthday this past December. He refers to me as his godmom and I couldn’t be prouder of him if he were mine.”

He is currently a Private First Class serving at Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany but will deploy to Kuwait in April.

James graduation from boot camp

Here is the main idea behind everything…

I’ll be collecting fellow author’s books to send to our troops stationed in Kuwait in April. Interested in donating some of your books? The men and women of the Armed Forces love receiving signed books from authors to read and pass around while they’re over there! If you’re an author and want to help, join this Facebook page and then get in touch with Armand for the address to send your copies. Let’s do something positive for someone else! 

I want to thank everyone who’ve already committed to helping with the event and are sending me packages so i can gather the books and box them for the troops. 

Quite a few non-authors have asked how they can help… get in touch with me, I will gladly collect donations to offset the shipping costs from me as well as purchase more books from authors I know at cost so there will be more books in the boxes to ship. 

At this time I am only interested in author-signed books to ship overseas. I think the troops will love the read and also knowing the actual author sent the books or the actual publisher. I’m not looking for your used books to donate or perishables or anything other than print books. This is not an eBook event, and not a forum for your political statements. It is simply to help those in the trenches who might want to read a book they can’t get their hands on right now. 

Come and help out as an author or as a supporter!

2014 #AStoryAWeek Challenge


2014book

Jessica McHugh (I pronounce it McHug with a silent second H, like something you buy at a creepy McDonalds) has a great idea going for 2014, and since I dive headfirst into anything that keeps me challenged, I decided to join in as well… and special thanks to Jay Wilburn for keeping me alerted to more stuff to keep me busy… we’ll be the death of each other before this is all done… especially with another #24HourWritingChallenge or three this year… 

I’ll update it each week with what I’ve finished… 

2014: A Story A Week

2014 is the year of #AStoryAWeek. All you have to do is write a story a week. I know, I know, ALL you have to do–like it’s not hard. It will be hard at times, but some weeks will be easier than others. Hell, just scroll down through the list below. It’s not really that long. I actually copy/pasted way too many “weeks” and was pleasantly surprised at how few there were. :)

REMEMBER: a story is a story, no matter how small. It can be 6000 words or 60 words. It can be written, edited, and polished for submission, or it can be a super-rough first draft. It can be brand new, or it can be an old story you’ve finally completed. Just THINK IN INK and get those words down! I will update this list with my story titles to show how I’m progressing, and I encourage you guys to comment with your lists, too! GOOD LUCK!! YOU CAN DO IT!!

2013 Was A Damn Fine Year For Me


New Box Set3

I see many people crying about how they got shafted in 2013 and are hoping 2014 treats them better… well, I also hope 2014 treats me better but only because I’m selfish…

I had an amazing 2013, easily my best year yet in my personal life and in my writing career. 

First, my personal life… 

Obviously it begins with dating Special Gal (Shelly), who backed me up completely all year, made sure the writing was my focus and let me be when I got cranky and had deadlines to finish. She was nothing but supportive and I will always love her for it. I’m looking forward to spending another year or fifty with her coming up. 

I also got my finances in order and was able to live comfortably without having to live paycheck to paycheck (or contract to contract), and it freed up some of the mental baggage. I got the chance to live another dream of mine and be on the radio thanks to Vern Shank and Surf 17 radio (www.flaglerbeachradio.com). Look for me on FM in 2014, too! I reevaluated a friendship and decided to cut some people loose that were nothing but negative and unloyal and got inside my head. No more of that shit. I have a great group of loyal and great friends I’m surrounded with. I hope to make a few more in 2014 but the ones I have are awesome. 

OK, there is one bad thing… I need to lose some weight before I can’t fit in the tiny radio station… 

936792_176011969230109_844367750_n

Now, my writing career…

I had 45 releases and sold more books in 2013 than I have in all the previous years combined, and 2012 wasn’t a bad year for sales. I’ve been blessed with a great fan base of readers, especially in my Dying Days and Flagler Beach Fiction Series releases. You can expect quite a few more in both of these in 2014 as well as a few more things… my goal in 2014 is to write and release longer pieces like more novels and novellas, and there will be quite a few sequels in the works as well… more info will follow as we get deeper into 2014…

I want to also thank each and every one of you who takes your precious time each day or each week and reads my posts and thoughts, and I hope you keep sticking with me for a long time to come… I’m really looking forward to an even better 2014…

Turtle-Crawling Into 2014 With My Writing


no-writing

A bad thing happened after a hugely successful NaNoWriMo November for me… I fell off with my writing, and badly. 

This is going to be a whiny, negative blog post, so if you’re looking for pictures of funny animals doing Christmas things, go find it somewhere else. I’m gonna git real fo a sec, yo… 

Today is the 23rd of December (or as some stupid people like to call it, Christmas Eve Eve… don’t call it that) and I should have about 30,000 to 46,000 words written for the month so far. Somewhere in that range would make me happy. 

Where am I so far in December? 17,781 words. Crap. In the 23 days of December I haven’t written on 8 of them. Unacceptable. The November novel sits firmly at 50,500 words and I’ve barely looked at it. I’m limping along on a short story for an anthology. While I love the story so far, the motivation to finish it isn’t there. A lousy 4,000 words in a month on a story shouldn’t be too hard… yet here I am, sitting at 3,457 words for the last 4 days. A half hour writing sprint would finish it off. 

I think the problem is motivation on everything right now. I am currently going back and forth about three potential projects for companies that will give me a nice chunk of money to live off of in the beginning of 2014, which is a great thing… but they are all moving along so slowly with the contracts, payments and deadline setting it is taking up most of my mental time. I should be writing but I’m worrying about how I’m going to pay the bills in the first quarter of 2014, how I’ll be able to have a great Christmas and have money left over, etc. etc. 

I have yet to have a huge writing day in December, and that usually helps me get rolling. One day of 5,000 words on a project or two let’s me relax and write, but it hasn’t come yet. Every day is a new challenge for me. Nothing major, just whiny stuff like spending the day shopping or me not feeling well or dealing with personal issues like my kids. 

I know, I’m being a whiny bitch. I’m a lucky man. I have a great career I’ve been dreaming about since I was twelve years old, I have a great family, a great Special Gal and special friends surrounding me. I have money in my pocket and I live in a nice house and have too much food to eat. 

Now I just need to find the motivation to write before December is over… 

Oh, in case I don’t see you tomorrow… have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Armand’s 2013 Year In Review Part 2


mail2

Yesterday you were amazed with my heartfelt and enigmatic first half of 2013 in review… and now… without further ado…

DeathMetalPreviewCover

In the beginning of August I re-released Death Metal in paperback with the new cover, which I like. I also started to think about ideas for the second book in the series, so look for that in 2014(I hope). I also released Golden Lion Cafe Complete, with all of the stories in one release. I also released Dagon, the fourth story in the Keyport Cthulhu series. And kicked off the third Flagler Beach Fiction Series story arc with JandJ Fitness Part 1

Dagon

September was another busy month, with JandJ Fitness Parts 2, Part 3, Part 4 and Part 5 released. I ended the month with JandJ Fitness Complete, putting them all together in one spot. 

BookCoverPreview JandJ

In October I decided to slow down the releases, especially anything horror, as most horror books would be pushed out in this month and I’d get lost in the shuffle. Instead, I started the fourth Flagler Beach Fiction Series with Flagler Fish Company Part 1. Part 2 and Part 3 were also released in October. I was also lucky enough to get involved in a charity anthology with some amazing authors and got to write a cool chapter in the ongoing story, The Carnival 13 by SAD House Press. 

Laughing your head off

With the start of November I released the fifth and final story (for now) in the Keyport Cthulhu series, Evil. I then released Keyport Cthulhu in eBook and Print versions, with all five stories in one. Flagler Fish Company Part 4 and Part 5 came next. Then it was time for Flagler Fish Company Complete in both eBook and Print. November also saw a sequel for me and Tim Baker with Dying Days: Siege 2, a return to European Village. Speaking of Dying Days, I also released the long-awaited Dying Days: Origins, which featured Tosha Shorb, a woman many readers should recognize. It was also released in Print. I was also lucky enough to be invited into the Epic Apocalypse Apocalyptic Horror Box Set (with Darlene Bobich: Zombie Killer included). You really need to check out the killer lineup, with Mark Tufo, Joe McKinney, John O’Brien, Heath Stallcup, Shawn Chesser and James Cook. 

dyingdaysorigin

Another great lineup was formed and released in December, with Still Dying 2 (yet another Dying Days release), featuring an anthology of great authors playing in my zombie world: Mark Tufo, Patrick C. Greene, Frank Edler, Tim Baker, AD Roland, Brent Abell, Jaime Johnesee and Sean Slagle. It also came out in Print

stilldying2correted

I was also able to update a few books, add some more into print, and also release everything on Barnes & Noble, Kobo, SmashWords and Apple. 

995588_746233418738599_1921121340_n

And 2013 isn’t done yet… my Necromance series of horror erotica has been picked up by Hazardous Press as part of their Hazardous Encounters line, and the first two will be out within a few days (I’ll post a new link, don’t worry), with many more in 2014. 

So add another 28 to the list in the second half of 2013. All told, I put out 45 releases in 2013… not bad, eh? I don’t expect to be as prolific in 2014 with this many releases, as I’m concentrating on some longer novels, but you’ll still see plenty out there from me.
