Graham’s Resolution Book One Hits #1 in Postapokalyptischer in Germany!

Thanks to my German publishers, Luzifer-Verlag, the first book in the Graham’s Resolution series has hit #1 on Amazon’s German site for the second day in a row!

And…they now have the second book in the series set for translation. The reviews have been great. It seems German readers appriciate the postapocalyptic genre as much as Americans do.

While perusing my publisher’s site I ran across several authors that I know and interact with often. They have some really great books out. One of those authors is G. Michael Hopf.

The-End-Web

His, The End series is quite popular in America as well.

In the Thriller genre, I’m accainted with Ian Graham. In fact, I met Ian in New Orleans last month at Bouchercon 2016. We had a great time there especially in the weapons class.

And another British writer I’ve met, no relation, Alex Shaw is also published on Luzifer-Verlag.

So Graham’s Resolution is in good company, or as the Germans put it Grahams Prefung. I can’t wait to see the cover they come up with for book two.

Things I never thought I’d say – My Name is on a Skull

gsbd3533_web_m_white_front

It’s been a year of new things for me. I never thought I’d write a zombie story. I never thought I’d write a complete series and I never thought I’d find my name on a skull.

There are plenty of months in the year for more firsts but today I get to share this one with you. After writing a mini zombie story in the anthology, Bite-Sized Offerings, for charity the organizers also set up a t-shirt with all the authors who participated in the project with Grunt Style. The proceeds from this will also go to the medical and travel expenses for a little girl with down syndrome who needs heart surgery soon.

It’s a worthy project and you can see my name right above the right eye of the skull not far from my buddy author W. J. Lundy. So if you’re in need of a t-shirt or even a hoodie like the one above and would like to have some of your favorite authors names within the skull motif, go ahead and click the link to Grunt Style and purchase one or three.

It’s all for a good and worthy cause and these days, we depend on one another for the best of deeds.

 

Have a great day!

The Malefic Nation is Coming! Release Sept. 12th!

It’s finally here! The last book in the Graham’s Resolution series releases this Saturday, September 12th.

I was able to move the date up and as it turns out I will be attending the Southern Preppers Expo this Saturday in Alabama. So come down and meet me if you’re in the Oxford, Alabama area; it’s FREE to attend. I won’t have a physical copy of the paperback at that time but you can download the ebook from Amazon on that day.

It’s a bittersweet completion. I certainly feel accomplished but at the same time I’m leaving characters I’ve come to love. When I set out to write my version of a postapocalyptic adventure, I never thought it would turn out this successful. I didn’t intend to write a series, but I felt once The China Pandemic was complete that there was more to their story and so I found myself writing the rest.

Now, I’m ready to move on, sorta. I’m ready to start new projects. I’ve already begun a fresh idea. I hope that you’ll enjoy this series and realize my final goal was to show what I believed the worst catastrophe to our world would result in. I think I did that after all. There will be tremendous heartache and pain and successes coupled with grief along the way.

To me, this is the realistic version. It’s what could happen… Let’s hope it never does.

New Release of Wayward Pines Kate’s Redemption

 

Wayward Pines Kate’s Redemption is finally released and I’m pretty happy with the way this novella turned out.

I hope you enjoy it too. At only $1.99, this short story tells Kate’s story of her integration into Wayward Pines. Did you ever wonder why she was so compliant when Ethan found her?

This novella, Kate’s Redemption, is based on the popular book series Wayward Pines by Blake Crouch with a special agreement through Kindle Worlds.

Kate knew Wayward Pines couldn’t be hell though she had her doubts at weaker moments. If only she could find the truth about the town where everyone knew your name and hid behind simulated smiles that defied the fear in their eyes. The rules were there for a reason. If you violated those rules, the phone would ring with deadly consequences.

At times, Kate believed she deserved this place after the moral crime she committed with Ethan Burke, but this redemption was far more than she could take and it was only a matter of time before her will would break.

Pick it up today for quick weekend read. Kate’s Redemption

New Release – Bite-Sized Offerings Anthology

51uXahS6BdL._SX344_BO1,204,203,200_Bite-Sized Offerings: Tales & Legends of the Zombie Apocalypse is a very special anthology that I’m proud to be a part of.

A few months ago my friend W. J. Lundy alerted me to a group project he was involved in and asked me if I wanted to join. A mutual friend and fan of our work is the adopted mother of two Down syndrome children with extensive medical cost. In fact, one of the two has had multiple heart procedures and needs yet more. So of course I agreed even though I’ve never written a zombie story before. It was agreed by the group to write an anthology involving zombies because the children love the stories.

Between projects, I wrote a quick two thousand word novelette which was the requested length. The stories are appropriate for those twelve and older. In all, we had over thirty authors involved in the project from many different genres. We collaborated over everything from editing, cover art, and formatting. You could say we all pulled together to create this piece and I’m pretty sure there wasn’t even one major argument; a feat known to happen between two authors let alone thirty.

All of the proceeds from the sale of Bite-Sized Offerings go directly towards the extensive medical expenses for this family so that they can focus on living life instead of worry over expenses. So please purchase this book and then share it to as many friends and family as you can far and wide.

I don’t know that I’ll write another zombie story, though I’m so glad I wrote this one. 🙂
