So, how’s it going?

(pauses for effect)

That good, huh? Well, I’m doing FANTASTIC!

Last year, I attended the Savannah Zombie Walk, but the event was moved to April, so I will be doing a book signing on Halloween instead. It will be at E. Shaver, Bookseller, which is a cool local bookstore in downtown Savannah. (I say cool, because there are other local bookstores, who are, um… not so cool.)

Anyways, from 3-5 PM on October 31st, I will be hanging out at the bookstore which is located at 326 Bull St. Come stop by, pick up an autographed copy of A New Death, and just hang out with some cool book people!

Author Update 8/22/2015

Posted: August 22, 2015 in Author Blog, Updates

Hey everybody, just posting real quick to say I will be taking a break from most things internet in order to refocus areas of my life.

So, I’ll pretty much be posting the same amount of content that I normally do.

Which isn’t much, or any for that matter.

So, just keep on doing what your doing!

Not reading my stuff because I don’t post stuff!

I’ll still be working on more books, so if you want updates on that, scroll up to the menu on the top of this page and click the FREE BOOK link. It’ll take you to my email newsletter sign-up and oh, you’ll get a free book!

So that’s cool right?

*crickets*

Okay then, well so long then and see you whenever!

Ok, so I didn’t just submit my book to the Tybee Island Book Festival.

But I did do so in the last week.

Pretty excited about a local book festival that includes both traditionally published and self-published authors. We have the Savannah Book Festival here every year, but as of right now, they only except traditionally published authors.

Which is kinda funny to me, because two years ago, they had Hugh Howey, who is one of the more well-known self-publishers. In fact, his self-publishing career is what led to him getting a traditional type publisher, but I digress.

I don’t have too many details on how I’ll be envolved with the festival, but I will keep everyone posted.

Hey everybody!

A little update before I take my Sunday afternoon nap before work tonight. (I work Sunday nights 9 to whenever we finish at my “real” job.)

First off, check out the new cover for CJ’s Story:

It now matches the cover for the new Lexx’s Story that drops the end of this week. I felt like it needed some updating, plus now it matches. I like the way it looks. The text is big, it’s simple, and it features the “Savannah Zombie” tagline, connecting better to the rest of the series. Amazon is in the process of updating it now. What do you think?

Second, I will be running a free promo on A New Death this week.

Yes, I said free.

So if you’ve read book one in the Savannah Zombie series, now’s a good time to tell your friends to check it out! Or if you haven’t read it, now’s a great time for you to check it out! My reasons for giving my work away for free is twofold:

1. To get my work out there and find new readers. Being self published, I feel like this is a great way to introduce my writing to new people.

2. I’m really hoping for some new reviews. If you download it during the promo, (or if you have already read it) please consider leaving a review. Reviews really help other readers decide whether or not a book is worth checking out. In a nutshell: the more reviews, the more a book gets noticed.

Well, that’s it for now. Time to go get some sleep before tonight shift!

The next installment in the Savannah Zombie Novel is here!

Click on the cover to buy!

Hey everybody, just wanted to give a quick update and let you know what I’m up to.

First, A New Darkness releases on Kindle this Saturday! You can still pre-order it and save 33% on this weekend’s price and 66% on list price. If you haven’t yet, go and get it here.

Maybe you’re like, “I still haven’t read A New Death yet.” Well, good for you, A New Death is on sale until Saturday! Get it for $1.99 here!

Or maybe you like paper. (Who doesn’t? Books smell amazing.) Well, good news for you, I’ve made some updates to the paperback version of A New Death and started work on the A New Darkness paperback this week. So both of those will be live in the next couple of weeks.

And lastly, I don’t normally do too much promotion leading up to book launch (one of my weak points) but this time around, I’m trying something new.

It’s called Thunderclap. Thunderclap works like this: You go and hook up your social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr) to my Thunderclap promotion. Then on Saturday at noon, Thunderclap will blast out a message featuring my book and link through all of our social media accounts. Pretty cool, right? The only catch is I have to get full support or else the message won’t go out.

As of right now, I’m at 14 out of 100 supporters. With only 14 people signed on, it already has a reach of 4313 people. Can you imagine if we get all 100?

I’ve done this before and have never received any junk mail from it, or any emails afterwards. It’s an extremely easy way to help support me. All you have to do is give up one tweet or status update on Saturday.

100 people is an easily reached number. We can do this. Sign up here.

Thank you so much for the support and I look forward to hearing what you have to say about A New Darkness!

Well, it’s official.

I’ll be at this year’s annual Savannah Zombie Walk!

Come hang out November 1st, get done up as a zombie, and shamble on through Savannah!

I’ll be there as a vendor, so come say hey, buy a paperback version of my books, get some autographs, or just stare at me like a piece of delicious meat.

It’s for a great cause too. To get your FREE zombie make up, all you have to do is make a canned food donation to the America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia. Check out the website below:
