I Have Too Many Releases For Sale

Jay Wilburn And Me

Jay Wilburn is a fellow author and good friend. I’ve had the privilege of doing several book signings with Jay over the last couple of years and many more are scheduled and will be done in the future. 

His philosophy is simple: don’t show all your books at once. Overloading potential buyers with too many books will only confuse and annoy people, or something to that effect. I always disagreed and piled 30+ releases on the table. 

Who usually sold more books? I don’t want to talk about it. 

I was interviewing a fellow author for my podcast (Arm Cast: Dead Sexy Horror Podcast – HERE is the link. Go listen and then come back. I’ll wait) and we talked about having too many books and stories out and confusing readers.

Then it hit me like a ton of bricks. I have too many choices and sometimes it might be overwhelming to figure out where to jump into my work. I used the short stories a couple of years ago to build up my numbers and get my name out there and it definitely worked. But now I worry I’ve over-saturated the market with smaller works. Right now on Amazon I have over 150 releases. Crazy, right?

So… I’m making an adjustment, which is part of the fun of being a self-published author. I know I can’t do anything about stories released by publishers but I can do my own stuff, right?

Right now I have 81 releases in Kindle Unlimited. I love the program and I make good money with so many pages read, so the problem isn’t having so much in KU, it’s what I have in KU to begin with. 

I’ll begin slowly working some titles out of the system over the next few weeks, but here’s the basic ideas so far…


  1. All of my Flagler Beach Fiction Series releases except the Complete books with all 10 stories will go bye bye. Right now I have 5 parts plus the Complete of each of the 7 books and I’ll get rid of the 99 cents parts in favor of readers wanting to read all 10 stories of each at once. I think it makes sense. 

2. Same with Keyport Cthulhu. The five parts will now be deleted and the final collection sold only. 

3. In addition, I’ll be slowly pulling the early Metal Queens nonfiction books in favor of box sets with all of them together

Fashion & portrait

That’s just the start. 

A few other things I’ll be working on:

Doing more box sets with multiple books for a better bang for your buck

Revamping the main Dying Days series with new covers


Pulling a few titles to rewrite/re-edit or keep out of print

Recently out of print works like Chelsea Avenue, Creeping Death, Tool Shed and Necromance updated and on sale

always adding new works to the pile

More information on these last few parts will be rolled out over the next few weeks and months, so stay tuned!


MandoWriMo – Slight Change Of Plans

Posted in #amwriting, 99 cent eBook, Armand Rosamilia, dying days, erotica, fiction, Hazardous Press, horror, Metal, Miami Spy Games, movies, Necromance, novella, personal, short story, writing, zombie with tags , , , , , on August 25, 2014 by Armand Rosamilia

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…

Kokomo‘s Café

Part 2

Flagler Fiction Series


Maybe I Don’t Know


Charlie Newman ordered two hot teas.

“Leave room for cream and sugar?” Mac asked with a smile.

“Has anyone ever told you that you look like Billy Joel?”

Mac laughed. “I get it at least once a day. I wish I had his money.”

Charlie turned and looked at Edith, who was sitting at the table near the front window. “You need room for cream and sugar?”

Edith turned and faced him with a sour look on her face. “What do you think?”

Charlie had no idea, because he didn’t really pay attention to stupid things like what she put in her tea. They’d been dating for a little over two years but he didn’t make a mental inventory of every food she liked or hated, or what she put in her coffee or tea. He didn’t remember if she even liked coffee.

He was too old for shit like this. Last weekend was his fifty-third birthday. Not that Edith had done anything special for him. She was actually mad his kids had taken him to Alfie’s in Ormond Beach for his special day. Edith and Charlie went to the Golden Lion for dinner and drinks on Saturdays. He’d thrown off their routine by celebrating a birthday.

Charlie shrugged at Mac. “Leave room in both, I guess.” He knew he wanted cream and sugar. He looked at Edith again, who was back to staring straight ahead and frowning at the paintings on the wall.

Mac leaned over the counter. “She likes a little cream and a lot of sugar.”

“Thanks. One day I’ll remember.” And one day maybe I’ll even care, Charlie thought. He took his time, putting cream and sugar in both cups and securing the lids. Every Friday he came to Kokomo’s Café with her, getting two teas and sitting in the same seats and watching people come and go in silence, until it was time for her to leave. He didn’t understand the point of these Friday late morning dates, but Edith insisted. Charlie could count on one hand how many words they’d spoken since they started coming here, in the last six months or so.

He held both cups over the table between them, looking around for the daily newspaper. He wouldn’t actually be able to read it until she left, but he wanted to get an idea where it was, currently, and who was reading it. Once Edith ran off, he could order a slice of cake (she watched everything he ate, like a hawk, and was quick to comment how fattening things were, even though she could stand to lose more than a few pounds).

“We need to talk,” she said, in almost a whisper, startling him, as he put down the cups of tea. He looked around, expecting another person to be near them. Surely, it wasn’t him she needed to talk to. He sat down.

Charlie took a sip of his tea and stared out the window at the young couple sitting outside, at a table under an umbrella, enjoying the breeze off the Atlantic Ocean. He preferred coffee, and never drank tea except on Fridays. It was easier ordering two teas and getting through it than dealing with Edith.

He wondered if they were newlyweds, flying down from some far-off place in the Midwest but unable to afford Hawaii or Key West. Just a couple of young kids with a full life ahead, thinking they’d met their dream companion, and they’d spend the next fifty years in wedded bliss. Charlie wanted to go out there and punch them both in the face. Knock some sense into them.

“Are you listening to me?”

“Of course,” Charlie said and plastered a smile on his face. “I’m always listening.”

Kokomo‘s Café

Part 1

Flagler Fiction Series

Be Here In The Mornin’


Three people, with tired eyes and dry mouths, were standing on the front deck, waiting for Mac to open. The same three he saw each and every weekday. It was the start of another Kokomo’s Café morning.

“Good morning, Dean.” Mac smiled at the older man, his wisps of gray hair flapping in the gentle breeze. Dean owned one of the knickknack stores dotting A1A, selling anything he could squeeze FLAGLER BEACH onto: shot glasses, shirts, flip flops, banners, and beach towels. He even had it stamped onto the ice cream in the cooler. “The usual?”

Dean grunted.

Not a morning person, Mac thought. No matter. He’d take his spot at the big window across from the counter and finger through the newspaper while the coffee was brewing.

The woman was named Beverly. She was a prominent local realtor, coming in for her morning double shot of espresso and a blueberry muffin. She’d ask Mac if he was ever going to sell his house in PalmCoast so she could get him a deal and he’d laugh it off. Of course, if his wife Ginny was opening with him, she’d be all ears. Her dream was to sell the big house and move to FlaglerBeach so they could be near the café and the beach.

Mac started up the coffee, hitting the lights in the kitchen and preparing whatever he needed for the opening. Ginny would be here by nine with ice and more coffee, which they’d need for the busy weekend ahead, especially with the farmer’s market going on across the street in Veteran’s Park.

The third member of the morning visitors (Mac liked to refer to them as the Breakfast Club) was the large guy who sat at the corner table, head down, staring intently at his laptop. He wore black t-shirts with humorous/almost-offensive slogans and only took breaks for phone calls, a refill of his coffee and to order lunch. He stayed through the morning and left around two. Mac didn’t know who he was but he was someone, because people came in to talk with him and sometimes met him for lunch.

Mac went to work on Beverly’s wake-me-up as the fresh coffee brewed. He had a system and it was running like clockwork right now.

Then the front door opened at the same time the back door did.

It’s going to be a busy morning, he thought. “Good morning, how’s it going?”

A young couple, in swimwear under long white shirts, came in from the front. They were smiling and couldn’t keep their hands off each other. They ordered cappuccino and egg and cheese sandwiches. The older woman, coming in from the back steps, was still going through the menu, even though it was a simple folded sheet with a handful of items.

When Mac saw the couple looking around as they stood and waited for their food, he pointed at the nearest table. “You guys can sit anywhere you like, in here or in the side room, or outside. I’ll be happy to bring your sandwiches out to you.”

She smiled. “Let’s sit outside at a picnic table. It’s so nice today.”

Mac went to the kitchen and started getting orders together, trying to stay ahead until Ginny got into work. They’d been open for business since October, and the customer base had grown considerably in the last eight or nine months. The couple had been lucky so far, and Mac knew the café had a great vibe to it and great food, which had the locals coming back for more. Now that summer was here, the tourists were trickling in. Some of the snow birds decided to stick around town longer than usual, and Fourth of July would be a huge event in FlaglerBeach, with fireworks just off the pier and the town jammed with families.

Mac and Ginny had run 100-seat restaurants in the past, but he’d sworn never again. He loved the one on one Kokomo’s Café afforded him. He liked serving one person at a time, being able to take a break during slow periods and sitting out in the dining area and shooting the shit with the locals. The view from the big window was wonderful: today and tomorrow he would have a good view of the farmer’s market, with people coming and going and, occasionally, stopping in to get coffee or a muffin. This was small town at its core, and he loved being situated so close to it and being a part of it.

He was only a block from the Atlantic Ocean, and the view past Veterans Park, the palm trees and parked cars was of clear blue skies dipping into a gorgeous body of water, pure and sparkling in the morning sunlight.

The back door opened and Mac popped his head out, saying hello to two men who came in. Yep, busy busy day, so far. Mac started moving at double speed to keep up, and he loved the challenge.

“Hello, how are you?” Mac heard Ginny as she came through the front door, greeting everyone as she came into the kitchen. She was good with names, and often reminded her husband who was who. Without her, everyone would be Ma’am and Buddy.

She came around the counter and took the order of the two men, slapping the slip down next to Mac. “I guess you’ve been busy.”

“So far, I can’t complain. I’m just glad you’re in and here early. If they kept wandering in, it might’ve gotten a little hairy.” Mac snuck a quick kiss to his wife’s cheek and returned her smile.

Flagler Fiction Series – Are These Real People?

Posted in #amwriting, 99 cent eBook, Armand Rosamilia, authors, contemporary fiction, Facebook, horror, Kokomo's Cafe, personal, short story, writing with tags , , , , , , on May 10, 2013 by Armand Rosamilia

When I decided a few weeks ago, right after finishing the first draft of Dying Days 3, to write a serialized batch of interconnecting stories that were what would be considered Contemporary Fiction and not Horror or even Thrillers, I decided the perfect setting for them wouldn’t be a fictitious town, but the place around me… after all, I spend most of my day sitting in a quaint place, overlooking the beach, and seeing the locals and tourists coming in and out. Why create a fictional world when the real one was so interesting?


Kokomo’s Cafe is the name of the first set in the Flagler Fiction Series and not only the setting for the stories but an actual place in Flagler Beach Florida, and where I sit in and write all day (and talk about constantly on Facebook). My ultimate goal is to do these 10-story 5-release eBook stories and then bundle them into a Print book, and use every location in Flagler Beach if possible. Not just cafe and restaurant spots, but surf shops, specialty stores, comic book and fitness places… anywhere interesting in Flagler Beach to have these characters visit and interact. The goal would also be to do a book signing in each place once they are released. 

I’m almost done with the sixth story out of the ten I need for Kokomo’s Cafe, and they are in the 2,500-3,000 word range. There will be two per serialized release, and they’ll begin next Friday May 17th… more information about each specific story and details will come some other day. 

I wrote a story about a struggling (and distracted) writer named Reba Port, which might have a slight commonality with a certain Becky Pourchot. OK, there are a few things in the story that made her laugh and ring true.

The owners of Kokomo’s Cafe (Mark and Tina) were gracious enough to let me set the stories there, and put owners Mac and Ginny in the stories. You might recognize some local people in and out of the stories, and I’ve had fun letting people read the first drafts and ask ‘Is that Marybeth from upstairs?’ or ‘Is this the Creepy Guy who sits in the corner seat all day?’


Even if you don’t live here, these are fun beach-reading stories, but you can enjoy them sitting in Iowa or Nebraska (that is the hope, anyway). I wanted character-driven tales, and I think I succeeded. I guess, once they start going live next Friday, I will find out if I’ve hit on something new and special for me, or if I missed the mark. Scary and exciting at the same time.

“Cthulhunicorn” by Katelynn and Armand Rosamilia

Posted in 99 cent eBook, Cthulhu, Flash Fiction, horror, unicorn, writing on July 6, 2012 by Armand Rosamilia

My latest release is Ancient, the first Lovecraftian short story in my A Keyport Cthulhu Tale series. It is currently available on Amazon and SmashWords and Barnes & Noble… and it’s only 99 cents. The cover is killer and from Jeffrey Kosh.

I added a bonus short story to the release, a flash fiction piece written by me and my eleven year old daughter, Katelynn, combining her love (unicorns) and mine (Cthulhu)… I decided to share it. Katelynn wrote the unicorn parts and I wrote the rest. I hope you enjoy our tongue-in-cheek mash-up.


Katelynn Rosamilia & Armand Rosamilia


Taffy the Unicorn was near Innsmouth and wanted to go swimming. It was a beautiful day and she saw a very inviting beach nearby.

Taffy decided to fly over and stay for a little while. When Taffy arrived, she looked around and saw that no one was there. She found the perfect spot to lay and nap for a bit.

When Taffy woke up she decided to go swimming in the clear turquoise ocean. The water was perfect and she was a terrific swimmer. She didn’t want to get out but she was getting tired of swimming and she was getting pruney.

She got out of the water she wanted to build a sand castle but soon figured out that unicorns couldn’t make sand castles because of there hooves.

Taffy saw several people that looked fishy coming down the beach, so she decided that it was time for her to leave. Taffy decided to get one more look of the ocean before she said goodbye. When she peered out into the distance, she saw an island. Before going home, Taffy decided to fly over to the island and see what it had to offer.

*   *   *   *   *

That is not dead which can eternal lie… but Cthulhu was sure growing bored after all this time. He spread out on theisland ofR’lyeh, which had risen from the ocean floor for the first time in aeons. Before nightfall, however, it would once again sink to the deepest bottom of the ocean and be lost once more.

Cthulhu wanted to enjoy some sunshine, maybe tan a few of his appendages and feel sand between his tentacles before it was all lost in infinite wetness. There was nothing worse than trying to play with sand a thousand feet deep.

He wanted to eternally lie… on the beach and watch the cute, puffy clouds pass overhead as the sun warmed his cold body and dried his moving parts.

As Cthulhu flapped his tentacles in the air and wished the clear blue sky was always this close (and, he realized, with some dismay, seeing the sky so close made him homesick… and home was so out of reach right now), he saw a bird up above in the distance.

The bird got closer, but it was too big. Maybe one of those monster creatures he’d seen hundreds of years ago? Giant teeth, huge wingspan like a flying killing animal.

Yet, as it came closer he saw it was a horse. A flying horse? It had a horn on its head, multi-colored wings and landed on the beach not far from him.

Instead of being scared, it said hello.

*   *   *   *   *

And so Taffy and Cthulhu fell in love. They spent the rest of the afternoon getting to know each other and having a good time.

Taffy was explaining her day at the beach when she mentioned how she couldn’t make a sand castle. Cthulhu offered to make her one. She was excited to see how it would come out. When the castle was finished, Taffy was amazed. It was humongous and Taffy thought it was the most romantic thing she had ever seen.

As the sun set over the water, Taffy knew it was time to go home, and so did Cthulhu. Taffy and Cthulhu were so in love that they decided to get married on the beach that very same night.

Taffy was so excited that she was finally going to be married. She invited her whole family and all of her unicorn friends to the wedding.

The fishy people of Innsmouth rowed out to the island, the Esoteric Order of Dagon did the catering, Shub Niggaruth and Nyarlotep stood in as Maid of Honor and Best Man, and the Pickman Bakery of Massachusetts provided the wedding cake.

The wedding was so pretty and it was the one Taffy had always dreamed about growing up.

They spent their one and only night as a married couple on the beach together, watching the stars. Cthulhu pointed out which one he was from.

*   *   *   *   *

The baby had her fathers eyes. Oh, and his tentacles. Even though her hide was a weird color you couldn’t really describe with words, she was still perfect to her mother. Most days and nights, while Taffy taught her daughter how to be a unicorn and also how to honor her father, they would sit on the beach near Innsmouth and wait for Cthulhu.

And pray for Father, roaming free…

99 Cent Short Stories?

Posted in 99 cent eBook, bones. death.cenote, horror, Kindle, short story, skulls, writing on June 20, 2012 by Armand Rosamilia

This will be a short post, because it’s more of a question for readers (besides my mom, I need someone else to answer!) of this blog who are writers or readers…

What’s your thoughts on buying 99 cents eBook short stories? Do you do this often or skip them for longer fiction?

Curious for two reasons: I like buying short stories from author’s I like and 99 cents is a nice price. And, second reason I ask: I have a bunch of short stories I’ve been thinking of either putting together in a bundle (like I did with Skulls and Bones. Death. Cenote collections), or simply selling them individually for 99 cents each.

I also have a couple of different sets of short stories with the same character(s) I was thinking of putting out as individual 99 cents shorts as well, but value any and all opinions from everyone.

I await your honest opinions! Go…
