End of August Update

Visiting my blog, I suddenly realized that I hadn’t posted anything since the end of July. How time flies! But I am madly typing away on two books.

200 (2)
In the Zone.

I am hard at work on the sequel to Death Storm. The reception for a dark fantasy zombie apocalypse has been good, and I will have the rough draft done by mid-September, and published in October.

And I have another novel in the works! I am still trying to decide if it’s going to be a serial or released as a complete book. If you have an opinion one way or the other, let me know. It’s vampire horror, and I’ll announce the title as I get closer to completing it (or if I go through with releasing it as a serial).

That’s all! Back to writing!

 

Death Storm: A Dark Fantasy Zombie Apocalypse!!!

Death Storm: Book 1 of the Hungry Gods Series is available now for your Kindle.

Like Dark Fantasy? Like Zombies? They go together like chocolate and peanut butter.

Here’s the cover and blurb:

A Dark Fantasy Zombie Apocalypse

A great evil descends upon the kingdom of Medanholm. A necromancer in the service of a fallen god leads an army of undead to extinguish all life. In the village of Briar’s End, there are few survivors. They are scattered and hopelessly outnumbered, with dwindling options for sanctuary. Hidden away within their mountain temple, the gods are oblivious to the horror on their doorstep…

…and it’s coming for them.

Death Storm is book 1 in the Hungry Gods series, a Dark Fantasy Zombie Apocalypse that brings the nightmare of Armageddon to a high fantasy world.

Available exclusively on your Kindle (and coming soon to Paperback).

July Happenings

July is looking to be a busy month. 🙂

DEATH STORM – Hungry Gods Book 1

DEATH STORM, Book 1 in the Hungry Gods Trilogy is being released just in time to start the month. That means that if you are sick of me talking about BROKEN THINGS, it will be taking a second seat for the new material. Death Storm is a dark fantasy apocalypse featuring a world of sword and sorcery getting to deal with a zombie apocalypse. Watch for a cover reveal soon.

JULY BOOK SIGNINGS

I have not signed on for any book signings this month, but watch for details. I am hoping to feature the new novel at any and all appearances, but it will depend on how quickly I get my books from the printer.

BLOGGER BOOK TOUR

For the end of  July, watch for a Blogger Book Tour. I am planning to feature/host 5 other authors, and visit their blogs in turn.

MISC

Finally, wonder why it’s taken me so long to finish this last book? I’m easily distracted. I’ve started 9 manuscripts over the last couple of months, chasing a lot of fun ideas. some of these manuscripts are already nearly 25% written. I’m making a goal to start finishing all of these projects that I’ve started, one book at a time. As soon as Death Storm hits the virtual shelves, I’ll reveal the next Work-in-Progress.

 

 

 

The Apocalypse is Coming… To Your Dark Fantasy

As of last night, my 1st draft of my Fantasy Apocalypse novel is complete. It now goes into the 2nd draft and the rewrite, to create something that you will want to read. 🙂 I am going to tentatively say that you can expect it by the end of the month. It will go through approximately three total draft stages, and then on to my editors to find anything that I miss.

So this is the first book of a series, called The Hungry Gods. I will nail an official title to this first book later. Hungry Gods is a dark fantasy series with all of the fun of a zombie apocalypse sprinkled in. And with that said, I am going to go spend some time with it. 🙂 Until then, have you read my sci-fi thriller, BROKEN THINGS? Maybe go do that while you wait.

Monday Update – On the Horizon

Before I get to the meat of this post, I got to point this out… If you visit this blog from time to time, you can see it’s got a bit of a new look. That feed you see on the left hand side is a visual peek at my Twitter, Facebook, and G+ feeds. That’s through RebelMouse.

NOW! My second novel is almost complete. I promised a hint at the beginning of this month, and then never delivered. Here’s the tease: It’s a fantasy apocalypse. The stereotypical fantasy world is getting a zombie apocalypse. It’s planned to be a series called Hungry Gods. That name might not stick, but I’m liking it so far. I know that doesn’t quite follow the same feel as BROKEN THINGS, but it’s something I wanted to write for fun. 🙂  It will also introduce my writing to a new audience.

Secondly, May and June have a plethora of book signings coming up. I haven’t updated the book signing page as of writing this post, but there will be three (!!!) signings in Boise this weekend. And then next week, I’ll be returning to Twin Falls to sign books with two other authors at Hastings. I’ll be posting the hours early this week for upcoming book sales and signings.

 

The Next Book…

I have a horrible time focusing on one thing, it would seem. My family won’t deny that. I have a handful of different titles I’ve been working on, and therefore none of them have been completed. With that said, today I’m committing to one title and finishing it before I revisit any of the others.

The lucky book is going to be a sci-fi fantasy horror blend about an entire quarantined world that has an undead problem. This is one of two different zombie type tales I have planned, and both will be a trilogy. I don’t have a title chosen yet.

Until then, go and read Broken Things if you haven’t all ready. It’s available in paperback and on the Kindle through Amazon.

Broken Things Part 1-1

For the next two weeks (excluding weekends) I’m going to post and share the first Part of Broken Things. In case you’re just joining this blog, Broken Things is a sci-fi novel about an abandoned and broken android kid trying to make his way home. Some sections are long, others short. The novel is available in paperback and for your Kindle here: Broken Things. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments. I’d love to hear from you.

Part 1-1

Josh Norton seemed just like all the other boys, he enjoyed playing sports and video games, playing with toy guns and swords, watching cartoons, and even had a small collection of vintage action figures. His parents had also bought him a new bike that put all of his friends’ old broken things to shame. In every regard he was as normal a boy as money could buy.

None of that made him special. All of his interests, right down to his personality, were individually chosen at time of purchase. A complex set of algorithms took those details and made it almost impossible to tell him from a real boy, a perfect kid designed to his owners’ specifications. His generation was highly sought after by would-be parents, thanks to the nearly infinite combination of personality traits, and they were available from infant to fifteen.

There hadn’t been a real child born for twenty years, the price the world paid for near immortality, so few knew what to compare a kid to anyway. Their own childhood memories were faint and lost to their hubris, and with it, their empathy for nurturing.

Josh Norton’s life, as he knew it, had to end.

Broken Things

Now available on the Kindle, my debut novel Broken Things. Print edition coming soon.

Broken Things

The world has changed. People live forever, but children are a thing of the past. To meet the demands of want-to-be parents, children have been replaced with androids… very life-like androids.

Josh, a twelve-year old boy, is hit by a truck, leaving him badly damaged. Instead of paying the outrageous cost to fix him, they dump him in the wilderness.

Broken Things follows Josh and his journey to a home that doesn’t want him anymore, through a setting that darkly mirrors our own. Along the way, he must face the fears of abandoned children, from the wilderness to the city streets, and the predators that dwell in both. His only salvation may rest in finding a single person that cares.
