2014 was another fine year for me and my writing, as well as other things in my life… as I’ve done for the last couple of years, I’ll spell it all out for ya… I also do this so I can go back and see what I’ve actually accomplished. I especially like to re-read these yearly posts when I’m struggling to write and feeling like I haven’t amounted to much so far. You know… typical manic writer stuff. 

Here goes the Year In Review for 2014

January

The first day of the year saw the Kokomo’s Cafe Complete audiobook released. Narrated by the wonderful Jack De Golia (who will end up doing the entire Flagler Beach Fiction Series), it is still one of my favorite set of stories I’ve written. And Jack’s voice adds so much more to each character.

Also released on the first of the year was my movie adaptation of the zombies vs. Navy SEALs story Zulu Six: Origins in paperback, ahead of the movie (actual movie release sometime in early 2015 as far as I know). I’m looking forward to seeing how the film matches the book, as i wrote it while they were filming and got to see the dailies to see the actors and action. 

January 2nd was the release of the beginning of the fifth book in the Flagler Beach Fiction Series with Nerdz Comics And More Part 1. It follows the rest of the series with the two opening shorts. 

January 7th the Epic Apocalypse – Apocalyptic Horror Box Set was released. I’m proud to be a part of this massive collection, with fellow authors Mark Tufo, Heath Stallcup, John O’Brien, Joe McKinney, Shawn Chesser and James Cook. 

New Box Set3

January 9th I released Nerdz Comics And More Part 2, with 2 more short stories to add to the growing series. 

A week later, on January 16th, Nerdz Comics And More Part 3 was released. 

On January 20th the audiobook version of Darlene Bobich: Zombie Killer was released. Narrated by Carolyn Nicely, who did an excellent job. 

Darlene eBook NEW

January 24th saw another audiobook release, this time Golden Lion Cafe Complete, the second in the Flagler Beach Fiction Series and again narrated by Jack De Golia. 

January 27th was the release date for Zombie Football, another book for the movie company. Surprisingly enough, it’s about zombies attacking during a football game. Hopefully at some point they’ll get around to making the movie version of this one.

The next day the movie company released Football Espionage, another book I wrote for the movie guys. This one has no zombies (wild!) and pits the Russians vs. Americans trying to manipulate the Big Game.

January was a busy month for releases for me, with 10. What a great start to the year, right?

February

On February 18th the third short story in my horror erotica series (released by Hazardous Press) came out: Holiday In The Sun. Lots of sex and horror once again. 

February 20th the audiobook version of Keyport Cthulhu was released. Narrated by Mike Chadwick, who was able to capture the gloom that is an homage to Lovecraft. 

Keyport Cthulhu

Not a busy month as far as releases, but I got in some great writing in the small month. Stories that would see the light of day before the end of the year, too. 

March

On March 2nd I released Dying Days: Siege 1 And 2 Box Set. Both novellas I’d written with author Tim Baker in one handy eBook, and all for the great price of 99 cents (as of this writing… get it before it goes back to $2.99, still a bargain)

Lets Scare Cancer To Death was released on March 8th, a charity anthology I had a Dying Days story in. Proceeds go to the V Foundation for Cancer Research. 

March 10th I released another box set, this time Dying Days: Double Set 1, which combined Dying Days: Origins with Still Dying: Select Scenes From Dying Days. A bargain at $2.99 for both releases. 

March 25th the third Flagler Beach Fiction Series audiobook was released, J And J Fitness Complete. Once again narrated by Jack De Golia with his unique voices.

Also in March: The Authors Supporting Our Troops event technically came to an end. We collected 2,500 author-signed books for the soldiers in remote areas of the world. Want to learn more about the even bigger 2015 event about to begin? https://www.facebook.com/groups/ASOT2014/

April

Not an April Fool’s joke, the Horror Within: 8 Book Boxed Set was released. Featuring my first Dying Days novella as well as books from Travis Tufo, Tony Baker, Eric A. Shelman, Ian Woodhead, Robert Chazz Chute, Mark Tufo, Scott Nicholson and JT Warren. And it is currently 99 cents so grab a copy!

Horror Within Box Set

April 2nd saw Nerdz Comcs And More Part 4 released. 

The next day Flagler Fish Company Complete audiobook (the fourth in the Flagler Beach Fiction Series) was released with another excellent job from narrator Jack De Golia. 

April 14th and Nerdz Comics And More Part 5, the final release for this book, was out. 

On April 18th Nerdz Comics And More Complete was released with all ten stories in one print book. 

The rest of the month was spent writing and playing too much on social media. 

May

May 30th I released the Dying Days 2 audiobook, narrated by Amanda M. Lehman, who did a great job on this and the first audiobook in the series. 

And that was it for May! Of course I was writing and doing fun stuff like going to the World Horror Convention with Special Gal the beginning of the month. Yeah, it’s a dirty job but somebody has to hang at the bar with Mark Tufo, Joe McKinney and Brian Keene and look interesting… 

June

June 19th Dying Days 4 was released, right in the middle of my annual Summer of Zombie Blog Tour. I even planned it this way, if you can believe it. I’ll chat more about the blog tour on my Arm Cast: Dead Sexy Horror Podcast episode #28. I swear. 

Dying Days 4 Cover

June 23rd the fourth Necromance horror erotica short from Hazardous Press was released, Downtown. More horror and more erotica and what more could you ask for?

Another slow month as far as actual releases were concerned. 

July

On July 4th the Arm Cast: Dead Sexy Podcast made it’s debut, with interviews with Mark Tufo and John O’Brien. 2014 will end with episode #28 (the Year In Review episode) and 2015 should still see new episodes every Friday. 

Arm Cast

A month almost passed before A Quick Bite Of Flesh: An Anthology of Zombie Flash Fiction was released on eBook from Hazardous Press, giving me an actual release for the month. One of my flash fiction shorts kicks it off. The print book has been out for a long time, so I’m not sure if July 30th is the actual date this version was released but according to Amazon it was, so… 

More writing in July without any real releases. I can distinctly remember wondering if all the work I was doing would ever see the light of day, as several short stories for invite-only anthologies were finished in these weeks without definite release dates. Some of them saw the light of day by the end of the year and a few are scheduled for 2015. 

August

On the 3rd of August Change Jar Books Part 1, the beginning of the sixth book in the Flagler Beach Fiction Series.

August 6th the Fairly Wicked Tales anthology from Angelic Knight Press was released, featuring my short, “The Wolf Who Cried Boy.”

August 11th Change Jar Books Part 2 was released. 

On August 19th the eBook version of the soon-to-be-released zombie vs. Navy SEALs movie, Zulu Six: Origins, went live. 

August 23rd saw the State of Horror: Illinois anthology from Charon Coin Press get released, with a new Dying Days short story. 

StateofHorror_Illinois_KDP

The following day (according to Amazon) State of Horror: New Jersey anthology from Charon Coin Press was put out. It featured another new Dying Days short story. 

StateofHorror_NewJersey_KDP

August 28th I had yet another new Dying Days zombie short story in a new anthology, namely Fading Hope. This story is really, really dark. 

Fading Hope: Humanity Unbound

It looks like some of those stories I’d been writing finally got released… 

September

On September 3rd an interview I did was added to the Interviewing Authors Anthology Volume 1 from Tim Knox, where I talk about writing zombie stories. 

September 8th brought out the audibook version of Nerdz Comics And More Complete, once again ready by Jack De Golia. 

Also on the 8th my debut full-length traditional horror novel, Chelsea Avenue, was released by Ragnarok Publications. After having written so many shorts and novellas, it was great to have a longer piece published after all this time. I’m damn proud of this story, too. 

Chelsea Avenue New

september 11th another short I’d been working on, a creepy horror tale, made it into Suspended In Dusk anthology, with an introduction by Jack Ketchum. How cool is that? 

September 16th Change Jar Books Part 3 was released. 

October

On October 6th Change Jar Books Part 4 was released. 

October 17th the final part was put out: Change Jar Books Part 5. You can expect the audiobook version (once again narrated by Jack De Golia) in 2015. 

Hallowed Horror was another box set I got to be in in 2014. On October 21st it was released and is currently only 99 cents so grab a copy asap! Featuring Mark Tufo, Christine Sutton, Scott Nicholson, Lisa Vasquez, Eric A Shelman, Chantal Noordeloos, Heath Stallcup, Jaime Johnesee, Eden Crowne, and featuring my “Tool Shed” horror novella you can’t find anywhere else! 

Hallowed Horror

November

November 11th saw Dying Days: Origins 2, featuring David Monsour (the character in the book and the real man on the cover), released right in the middle of the Winter of Zombie Blog Tour. More on the tour in the podcast. 

Armanddyingdaysorigins2

Change Jar Books Complete came out November 16th, with all ten stories in it. 

Most of November was spent writing several projects, including another movie adaptation that should be filmed in early 2015 and then the book will be released as well. 

December

December 15th the audiobook version of Highway To Hell was released, and read by none other than Jack Wallen. Why did it take so long to get released? That’s a story for the podcast. 

Even by my standards December was a slow month. I worked mostly on a movie adaptation novel as well as a few short stories for upcoming anthologies in 2015. I wrote a big chunk of the first draft of Dying Days 5 as well. 

*   *   *   *   *

43 more releases in 2014!

What will 2015 bring? Hopefully many more releases and many more new readers

Here’s to another great year coming up!

2013 Was A Damn Fine Year For Me

Posted in #amwriting, Armand Rosamilia, authors, Blogging, contemporary fiction, dying days, fiction, flagler beach, Flagler Fish Company, florida, horror, novella, short story, writing, zombie with tags , , , on January 1, 2014 by Armand Rosamilia

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…

Armand’s 2013 Year In Review Part 2

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.

The Writing Week That Was: 15,560 Words

Posted in #amwriting, Armand Rosamilia, dying days, fiction, flagler beach, Flagler Fish Company, florida, horror, novella, personal, short story, writing, zombie with tags , , , , , , , on October 15, 2013 by Armand Rosamilia

WRITER

I wrote last week… and I had a good seven days doing it, too… even though I only wrote on five of them… 

Tues 10/8 – 2,455 words

Wed 10/9 – 3,003 words

Thurs 10/10 – 2,346 words

Fri 10/11 – 0 words (meeting other authors and then my radio show)

Sat 10/12 – 0 words (World Zombie Day in Jacksonville)

Sun 10/13 – 5,600 words (co-writing the sequel to Dying Days: The Siege of European Village with Tim Baker and then my own projects)

Mon 10/14 – 2,154

Projects completed: Flagler Fish Company Parts 1 and 2... sequel to Dying Days: The Siege of European Village

15,560 words done in the week… My weekly goal is 10,000 words, so I made up for the week before a bit (I only hit 8,872 then)… I’m up about 4,000 words on the month and year and I hope to keep it going… Today starts a new week for me, so my goal is to not only hit my 2,000 words but to get ahead as much as possible. 

I’ll try to keep my weekly posts going as long as people are interested in them. I hope it will inspire you to hit your own daily and weekly goals, and it keeps me honest by having to say what I wrote whether I hit the mark or failed…

Mini Update On My Writing

Posted in #amwriting, Armand Rosamilia, contemporary fiction, Cthulhu, dying days, fiction, flagler beach, Flagler Fish Company, horror, Keyport Cthulhu, short story, writing, zombie with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 6, 2013 by Armand Rosamilia

So far, so good… since beginning to actually keep track of my writing this past Tuesday (October 1st) I’m over 7,000 words on the week with two days left to write. My weekly goal is only 10,000 words, so 2,000 words a day with two days off to concentrate on marketing, e-mails, Red Sox baseball and maybe even talk to other humans is the way to go. If I write a bit on my off days (like I did on Friday, hitting 674 words in about a half an hour of writing) I’ll be fine. 

Yesterday was my daughter Katelynn’s 13th birthday and we celebrated with the Festival of Bacon in Orlando and then dinner at Kan-Ki Japanese steakhouse for her. No writing. Today, while she is out shopping with Special Gal I’ll be hitting my 2,000 word goal. And then hitting it again tomorrow, so hopefully getting over 11,000 words in my first tracked week. 

What will I be writing? Here’s going to be the challenge and the fun… 

In November I am definitely going to write the first draft of Dying Days 4 but it will only be about 35-45,000 words, so that won’t be a problem. I’ll write a few other things in there as well and write 7 days a week for the month. I’m excited to get back into the zombie series and I hope my readers will be, too. 

The problem will be having only 4 weeks left to write in October to finish a bunch of projects I have deadlines for:

1. Flagler Fish Company Parts 2 – 5 in the Flagler Beach Fiction Series (20k)

2. Nerdz Comics And More Parts 1 and 2 in the Flagler Beach Fiction Series (10k)

3. Dying Days: Origins finish (10k)

4. “Evil,” the fifth and final part of the Keyport Cthulhu series (5.5k)

So, about 45,500 words in 4 weeks… easy, right? An extra 10 percent and I do it. And all of these will then go to beta readers and editors and see the light of day very soon… as well as everything else currently in the pipeline with readers and editors. 

How will I do?
