Shocker by Armand Rosamilia and Frank Edler FREE through January 1st

Posted in Armand Rosamilia, frank edler, FREE eBook, horror, Kindle, kindle unlimited, shocker with tags , , , , on December 28, 2020 by Armand Rosamilia

Shocker, the first book in the twisted trilogy from Armand Rosamilia and Frank Edler, is FREE for a limited time!

SHOCKER is the horror humor story of a prisoner, a religious idol, monsters and mayhem.

Vito “The Shocker” Shocketti has been locked away in Rahway State Penitentiary for twenty years of his life sentence. In that time not one cellmate has endured being quartered with him for very long. That all changes when a young kid, Manny “Dirty” Sanchez, gets put with The Shocker.

A star struck Manny begs “The Shocker” to tell him his legendary story of crime and murder. Vito decides to unload on the kid, who becomes more and more engrossed in The Shocker’s tales of living life on the edge in the seedy heavy metal club scene in 1980’s New Jersey.

The Shocker, impressed that Dirty has not begged the guards to move him from the cell, drops a bombshell. All the murders The Shocker committed were directed at the behest of Baby Jesus. The Shockers tales devolve into the weird and insane.

Could The Shocker be making it all up to make Manny think he is criminally insane or is the Baby Jesus real and has a higher plan for the both of them?

Seasoned writing veteran Armand Rosamillia teams up with hungry newcomer, Frank J Edler to tell this darkly funny story of reckless behavior, oddball monsters and the cherubic Baby Jesus. The two Jersey boys spin a thick flavor of heavy metal life in New Jersey that will make the most bad-ass of metalheads cringe with delight. This story should come with a pair of tight black leather pants and a can of Aqua Net.

Also features an interview with both authors by fellow deranged author Christian Jensen

Grab Shocker, and if you’re not either dumbfounded or feel like you’ve lost brain cells after reading it… maybe get the other two? Just sayin’

“Miami Spy Games” FREE Today #spy #thriller

Posted in #amwriting, FREE eBook, Giveaways, Miami Spy Games, spy, thriller, zombie on September 2, 2012 by Armand Rosamilia

My latest release is the 8,000 word short story “Russian Zombie Gun – Part 1” in the Miami Spy Games series… it’s the introduction to what I hope is a long-term series… and today (Sunday September 2nd 2012) it is FREE to read! Miami Spy Games

Here is the description:

Miami, 2012. A new gun has made its way from a Russian science lab to the streets of Miami—a gun that destroys the executive functioning power of the brain, turning people into zombie-like beings.

The Miami Asymmetrical Clandestine Elite Service (ACES) team must intercept these weapons before they arrive at their intended destination.

Follow the Miami ACES team in their thrilling adventures in this new series.

Written by: Armand Rosamilia

Created by: AK Waters

*   *   *   *   *

People are asking me who AK Waters is. I haven’t met him. He’s a man of mystery. He created the Spy Games saga. Working with Hobbes End Publishing, they asked me to be a key writer on the series. AK is trained in anti-terrorism and asymetrical warfare. He’s been all over the world, S. America (Colombia, Panama mostly) as well as Iraq and Afghanistan. He was trained by the best in the world. He speaks Spanish, Russian and English. His mother was a KGB spy, his father a US Sub Captain. He’s grown up in the world of spies and espionage and has some stories to tell. Rumor has it Bruce Willis played the role of AK Waters in a true story in the movie Tears of The Sun.

Another question I am getting is about the supposed Russian Zombie Gun. We always consider zombies to have to do with viruses, but what if it’s something else? Is the zombie gun real? Do you believe what the government and news agencies are telling you about the actual Miami zombie attack? Do you think AK Waters knows the truth?

Weekly Writing Goals, Midgets and Eggnog

Posted in #amwriting, Cthulhu, death metal, dying days, FREE eBook, horror, novella, short story, writing, zombie on August 6, 2012 by Armand Rosamilia

OK, for the millions (and millions) that religiously follow every post from me, I thank you. Entire nations have been known to structure their day around my omnipotent blog. I get it. I’m cool.

Anyway… if you remember (and who can forget?), last week I tossed all basic structure out the window and decided to write whatever the Hell I wanted to write… and I did. And I wrote quite a bit, hitting just about 15,000 words in 7 days. That’s a bit over 2,000 a day and well over the 1,500 a day goal I’ve been striving for.

I am flying with Death Cult: Death Metal 2, topping 20,000 words and realizing the followup that was supposed to also be a 25,000 word novella is looking more like a 60,000 word novel. I’m only done with part one of three, and ideas are flowing.

And since I’m having so much fun, a quick reminder that Death Metal is free today and tomorrow, so grab a copy, read it, love it, Amazon review it, and let it become part of your life. Name your future children after characters in the book… and wouldn’t Death Metal be a pretty name for a litle girl? Just sayin’

I also wrote 3,000 more words on Dying Days: Origins, and this one is going to be a fun read if I do say so myself. I also added 1,500 words to an untitled zombie novella not in the Dying Days world I hope to finish soon and get edited properly.

Plus, I began the third Keyport Cthulhu short story, “Cabal”, and so far it might be the best of the bunch.

So, my goal for this week is to once again do whatever the Hell I want. Wish me luck.

Oh, and the midgets and eggnog in the title? Just slipped in two keywords for the search engines, because studies show people who like midgets and eggnog love reading horror books. It’s a fact.

Twitter Respect

Posted in Blogging, FREE eBook, Giveaways, guest blog, horror, interview, personal, Twitter, wordpress, writing on July 20, 2012 by Armand Rosamilia

I’m here today to share a point or six (maybe more, who knows) about Twitter Respect. Simply put, things I find socially unacceptable when being my friend on Twitter. Your ideas might be different, and you might disagree with me. But right now, in the immortal words of Robbie from The Wedding Singer… Well, I have a microphone, and you don’t, SO YOU WILL LISTEN TO EVERY DAMN WORD I HAVE TO SAY!

Incidentally, in a post a couple of days ago I freely quoted (without proper credit) The Blues Brothers, but no one seemed to comment on it. For shame. All of you. Now, back to my Twitter Respect Ranting…

1. What is the damn point of following a million people that don’t care about you at all? The ‘follow me and I’ll follow you for an hour before I delete you and then try to get all your friends to follow me’ thing is stupid. I don’t see the point.

2. If you don’t follow me back within a reasonable amount of time (usually four weeks) I unfollow you, unless you are Neil Gaiman or JA Konrath or someone really cool that I read their tweets all the time. But, the real problem I have is that then you post that I unfollowed you… not sure why you do this. Hey, here’s a fun thing: follow me back to begin with, and I won’t have to delete you. And you won’t have to point out that you only bothered with me once I cut you off.

3. Not sure why, but DMs from people I don’t know are annoying. Oh, wait, I remember now: It’s because I try to be nice when you say ‘Thanks for the follow! Nice to meet you’ and I reply in kind, only to be told by Twitter than you don’t follow me so I can’t send it and I wasted my time! Guess what? You get unfollowed quicker than 30 days. Just sayin’.

4. I also hate initial DMs that give me a link to your website/Amazon page/free eBook giveaway… I can’t imagine this works for anyone trying to promote themselves and gets someone excited enough to say ‘Wow, thanks for the private spam! I am going to buy your book right now!’. How about saying hello, and then we can be nice first before you shove your work down my throat… and I can actually say nice things back since you also follow me. I promote my own work every day, but it’s drowned in with reblogs of cool posts I read, RT’s of other cool books I like and tweets to people that I converse with like a normal human being.

5. Posting your link for your book/band/website/crap using my twitter handle as a way to get people to notice you, since you have 147 followers and I (currently at 12:13 am when I’m writing this) have 12,867, all (OK, most) of which I earned by being nice and not beating them over the head with promotions for my work. I keep getting the ‘@ArmandAuthor: My character in my new book is a bad man. Here’s the link to the book on Amazon’, even though I never said a word to you before this, and when I check your Twitter page I see you sent the same message to 56 other people in the last 34 minutes. ‘Hope you buy my book!’. Not gonna happen. Unfollow.

6. I love when people RT my posts and my blog posts, and ask questions, comment, act silly, and just friendly. There is nothing cooler than people responding, playing along or just being normal. Yet, I’ve actually had people upset because I reblogged their stuff and it went out to 12,000+ Twitter followers but I didn’t say it was from them… uh, they clicked on your website, I liked your post enough to share it with 100 times the amount of people it would have normally gotten eyes on… keep complaining, sorry. I’m wrong. It won’t happen again. To your posts, trust me. For the people who reblog my stuff and love when I reblog their stuff… thank you. I like you. You get the implications of social media and the fact that I liked your post enough to want to share it with my friends. Keep writing cool posts about your writing, cool interviews, cool Metal bands, zombies, steampunk and horror stuff and I will keep promoting you, because I like it and want to spread the word about the cool kids.

7. And seven, seven for no tomorrow

8. And eight, eight, I forget what eight was for

9. But nine, nine, nine for the lost gods

10. ten, ten, ten, ten for everything, everything, everything…

Please let someone know what that last part is from… I’m begging you..

This is my tongue firmly planted in cheek (but mostly true) rant against no Twitter Respect. I’m sure I missed a few things and I hope to meet you along the journey and actually get a chance to chat with you. In 140 characters or less.

Now buy my book(s).

Summer of Zombie

FREE eBook! Um, Who Cares Anymore?

Posted in FREE eBook, Giveaways, Kindle, Kindle Fire, personal on May 25, 2012 by Armand Rosamilia

This will begin as a mini – rant and end up… heck, probably just a longer rant.

I keep getting e-mails, each and every day, with some other author announcing they are doing a giveaway, a freebie, or a contest to get their latest and greatest eBook for FREE. I’ve done it, we’ve all done, back in ancient times (you know, January and February 2012) when giving away your eBooks for FREE was something special, and when it led directly to new readers and more sales for your backlist, as well as nice bumps up the Amazon charts. Hurrah! I’ll give away 1,567 of this title, which will lead to 47 sales of this title. It was a no-brainer.

Then the bottom fell out. Hard and fast.

Amazon decided, quite simply, it was time for a change so they could make more money, and they were smart enough to see the writing on the wall. Hell, I grabbed over 100 free horror eBooks, spending my time going through e-mails begging me to take them, and free sites that put them all together for you nicely, wrapped them in a bow, and let you click click click until you downloaded so many free eBooks your Kindle almost froze and/or exploded.

I’ll never read most of them, and neither will you. Quite frankly, I’ve read a chapter or two of some and had no idea why it was even on my Kindle. There are too many other great eBooks I actually purchased or were given to me from someone I wanted to read in the first place.

I ranted to some friends the other day when I started getting e-mails with the subject ‘FREE Kindle’ and thinking I’d won or could conveivably win a new Kindle, like one of those fancy Fire things or maybe some KindleEchoDeluxe prototype, but it was actually just some jackass swindling me into reading his e-mail about his FREE Kindle eBook, because Lord knows I don’t have enough of them.

People are pulling their books out of the Amazon KDP Select program like their hair is on fire, which is fine. I won’t begin to tell you what to do for your career, and everyone is different. People do the same things at the same time and get different results, so your mileage may vary, as they say.

I say, quite simply… stop sending me e-mails about a FREE Kindle, and I have no more room to add yet another eBook to the TBR pile that I will never read. But I will keep buying eBooks I’m interested in (and $2.99 and under, let’s be reasonable) and reading and reviewing them when I like them enough.

And I can’t promise I’ll never spam you for some silly contest, giveaway or freebie thing when I feel like it… with the publishing climate changing almost daily, tomorrow’s big thing might be giving away new Kindle Fires for free as a promotion… then, please, send me that e-mail.

What’s your opinion on FREE eBooks right now, and how has it changed?
