Death’s Reach – Available Now

The wait is finally over. Death’s Reach, the sequel to last year’s Death Storm in the Hungry Gods series, is available on exclusively at Amazon in ebook format. Paperback will follow shortly.

Get it here.deathsreachsmallish

DEATH’S REACH

The zombie apocalypse continues as the survivors search for a place of refuge. Things have gone from bad to worse, with even the gods succumbing to the curse.

Taegar never saw himself as a hero, and certainly not a leader. His allies are a mixed bunch, composed of a little girl and her zombie brother, a blind and crippled elf, a rogue, and a young woman that can’t return his affections. Though their differences threaten to tear the group apart, only by staying together can they survive.

Their goal is to reach Levia, the city of wizards, hoping that such a place would have withstood the undead horde. Between them and their destination is a dying world full of new horrors and nightmares as the curse expands beyond humans. And what awaits them in Levia? Has it truly survived the madness of the zombie apocalypse?

Meanwhile, the goddess, Death, embarks on her own journey to reach the underworld and fulfill her destiny. Her companion, a man thought lost to primordial spirits, carries within him a curse all his own.

Death’s Reach is book 2 in the Hungry Gods series, and the sequel to Death Storm, a Dark Fantasy Zombie Apocalypse that brings the nightmare of Armageddon to a high fantasy world.

Monday Update Part 5

One year ago from yesterday, I released my first book, Broken Things. Since then, I’ve published two others, with my fourth book coming out within a few days.

Broken Things was the novel I wanted to write, a story that I felt was inspired. It is the novel I wanted to launch my career with. I’m still proud of it, even though my writing has continued to grow since then. It’s still my favorite of all my stories. It’s taken me across Southern Idaho to book signings in a variety of venues from an aquarium and to coffee bars and bookstores. It also continues to sell the best of my three titles, so far.
Broken ThingsEven though I am frequently asked if this book will ever have a sequel, I really don’t want to lessen the book by giving it a series. There’s some books (and movies) that lose everything they stand for because of further development, and this I will always believe is one of them. It has reached rank #1,138 in paid bestsellers on Amazon, and broken into the top #100 from a promo free run.

In this second year, I have another sci-fi novel coming out, probably a month or two away. It will be for those of you who enjoyed my first Sci-fi, with a story-line that will hopefully make you think and feel. More on that at a later date.

I will also be writing my other two genre fiction series, being Hungry Gods and Spilling Blood. I’ve promised my wife her advanced copy of Death’s Reach will be in her hands over the next couple of days, which means that you will be able to read it within a week.

In Death’s Reach, the zombie apocalypse takes a number of horrifying new turns as zombie gods begin to extend their influence over the world. There are few sanctuaries left, and the survivors from book 1 find their resolve tested as the world descends into chaos.

If you liked Death Storm, you’ll love Death’s Reach.

Monday Update – Part!!! 4!!!!

What time is it?! Monday!!! And what does that mean?! Monday Update!!! How are things going???

original
GREAT!!!!!!!

Yeah, so anyway, as you saw from the middle of the week, Death’s Reach is nearing completion. This week I’ll be revising and sending it off in manageable bites to my proofreaders.

In case you missed the cover and don’t want to scroll down to the previous post, here it is again:

That’s Death on the cover, btw. What’s Death up to in a world that’s undead? You’ll know soon enough.

As far as participating in Milwordy, word count is at 27,511 of 1,000,000. I need to be around 80k to be back on schedule for January by the end of the month. That’s a bit behind. Not worried yet though.

The next Monday update will reveal details about Spilling Blood Season II and other projects.

Now.. for number of releases. Remember, the plan is to publish 14 books in 2014. I have released 1 so far this year, under another pen name. Hey, that still counts. So that’s 1/14, with Death’s Reach going to be #2.

 

Death’s Reach Cover Reveal

The release of Death’s Reach is right around the corner. In the coming days, I’ll be throwing out some teasers about the book leading up to its launch, but let’s start with this…

…the cover!

deathsreachsmallishThis beautiful cover was designed by Jen Pack at Black Cat Studios Design & Photography, and features the Goddess of Death. This is the second book cover she’s done for me (the first was Spilling Blood).

If you haven’t read the first book, there’s still time before Death’s Reach releases. Grab book 1 in the Hungry God’s series, Death Storm, now.

Monday Update 3 – Getting There Slowly

Dog Rides Tortoise
Last week’s productivity was slooooooooow…..

Thanks for checking back in with me. Last week was slow going, so not a lot to report. however, Death’s Reach is almost done, and I have a cover artist nearing completion. All my energy this week will be going into getting the book revised and finished.

As far as Milwordy goes, I need over 80,000 words by the end of this month, and I’ve yet to pass 30k, so I’ve let myself slip as I clean up these projects. I’ll leave it at that.

Unexpected Horse
Some weeks have unexpected interruptions…

Monday Update – Death’s Reach (Hungry Gods 2)

cold

Monday Update #2! Happy Monday! First off, Death’s Reach (Hungry Gods Book 2) is now past the first draft stage and on to stage two. I KNOW i said last week that it could be done by the end of this week, but it’s probably two weeks further out. By the way, I’m really bad at these time guestimations. The only correct answer is “soonish”, with a goal of this month.

Other fun stuff – the next book after Death’s Reach is a ghost story. More details next week.

Words written Last Week: 9,638. For Month/Year (Milwordy- 2014): 25,379.

Novels Published this year: 0/14.

giphy

Here it is, as promised, the first of many Monday updates to come.

DEATH’S REACH (HUNGRY GODS BOOK 2) UPDATE

Last week was a great writing week, and the first draft of Death’s Reach, Book 2 of the Hungry Gods series is almost complete. Hopefully I’ll have a cover to share with you after next weekend. You could be reading it on your kindle by the end of next week. Next Monday I should have a better idea of a release date.

WORD COUNTS

Last week I mentioned my target of writing 1 million words in 2014… I’m at 15,741. Right on schedule. You can follow my writing and publishing daily on Tumblr. Follow me by clicking here.

The Official 2014 Resolutions/Goals Post

Before I get started on New Year’s Resolutions, I thought I’d take a quick look back at what I said I’d do for 2013, and where I fell short.

The Best and Worst of 2013

fellshort

First: 13 Novels – Yep, didn’t happen. Three happened. Actually, I’ve written four, but I’m saving one to release in 2014.

Second: 5,000 words a day. Sometimes I was lucky to hit 500. My best writing day was just over 8,000. However, I I’m currently hitting between 2k to 6k a day for the end of this year.

2013 did see the release of Broken Things, a novel I’m very proud of, and continues to be my bestselling book.

I also released the first book of two series, Hungry Gods and Spilling Blood.

I did not stay true to one genre, but I never intended to.

On to 2014

kitty1). Since last year I wanted to write 13 novels, this year I’m setting my goal for 14 for this year. Do I care that I didn’t hit my goal last year? No way. Is it going to deter me? Not a chance. 14 novels.

Book 2 of both The Hungry Gods and Spilling Blood series will see release in the first quarter of 2014, and books 3 to both following. I have outlines for two more Sci-Fi books waiting in the queue, one additional fantasy, and a ton of horror.

2). Word count goal: 1 million words in 2014. That’s less than 3,000 words a day, but I intend to achieve much more than that.

3). Updates. Monday ones, Just like this one, every Monday. Starting this week, I’m going to actually use Tumblr too. I think I’ve got maybe three posts ever there. I’m going to use it to post daily word counts and how my goals are coming along.

4). This is my Maybe Goal. Maybe I’ll use my newsletter. Maybe.

And with that, I’ll leave you with one update: my next book, and first book of 2014, will be Death’s Reach, Book 2 of the Hungry Gods series, and it will be released in January. That’s all! 😀

The couple that runs this site are readers that provide a great service to discover new authors. Besides mine, they have a wide selection of interviews with other authors. Definitely worth checking out.
